    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairfield

    One of Connecticut's top neighborhoods, the town of Fairfield is known for its unique character, top-ranking schools and miles of coastline. While it's home to around 62,000 residents, Fairfield still maintains a small-town feel. Of this population, more than 15% are aged 65 and older and may benefit from the care services offered in an assisted living community.

    In Fairfield and throughout Connecticut, assisted living communities are split into two categories: assisted living services agencies and residential care homes (RCHs). There are 20 of these facilities in the Fairfield area, all of which are licensed by the Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairfield

    • Fairfield's low crime rates may be reassuring to seniors in assisted living communities. On a scale of 1 to 100, violent crime is rated 8.5 and property crime is 26.7. These numbers are much lower than the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories, respectively.
    • Seniors on a tight budget may need to review their finances when considering Fairfield as a place to settle. At 171.9, the town's overall cost of living is significantly higher than the Connecticut average of 118.4 and the national average of 100.
    • The state of Connecticut offers a tax credit for low-income seniors to help alleviate the financial stress of retirement. Seniors in Fairfield also have access to three separate town-sponsored tax relief programs, which could provide additional income for assisted living services.
    • Despite its chilly winters, Fairfield's climate is considered quite good for the region. Summer months are warm, with highs in the 80s and winter temperatures only drop as low as 22 degrees. Overall, the town receives a comfort index rating of 7.2 out of 10.
    • Fairfield has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bigelow Center for Senior Activities, an organization that provides programs and services for the town's elderly residents, including exercise classes, games, educational seminars and weekday meals.
    • The Greater Bridgeport Transit Authority operates a fixed route bus service that serves the Fairfield area. The town also has a fleet of five buses dedicated to providing transportation services, for a small fee, to seniors who wish to get to the supermarket, library, senior center and medical appointments
