    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Darien

    Darien is a small town located on the Long Island Sound in Fairfield County, Connecticut. It has a relatively small senior population, with 12 percent of the town's 21,000 people aged 65 and older. Mostly independent seniors who need some help with daily activities can find accommodation in one of the area's 15 assisted living facilities. Connecticut's Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section licenses and monitors facilities in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Darien

    • The Darien area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Norwalk Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Darien's overall crime rate is 13 crimes per 1,000 residents. Around 64 percent of Connecticut's other towns and cities have a lower crime rate; however, the rate is lower than average when compared to American communities of a similar size. This may be reassuring to seniors' families  who are concerned about their safety.
    • Fairfield County, including Darien, received passing grades for both 24-hour and annual particle pollution in the State of the Air 2018 report. However, the county received a failing grade for ozone pollution, which may impact the health of seniors with respiratory illnesses.
    • Norwalk Transit provides public transportation in the Darien area and passengers aged 65 and over are eligible to pay half fares. There's also a door-to-door paratransit service.
    • The Sperling index rates Darien's overall cost of living at 306, which is 206 points higher than the national average. This is mainly due to the high cost of housing. While everyday expenses, such as healthcare and groceries, are still high, they are closer to the national median, which may make the town more affordable for those on a fixed income.
    • Darien has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Southwestern CT Agency on Aging, an organization that provides resources to help seniors maintain and improve their quality of life, as well as one senior center.
