What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greenwich

Greenwich is a suburb in Connecticut, just 35 miles northeast of Manhattan. Located on Connecticut’s Gold Coast, Greenwich is one of the most affluent areas in the state. Seniors who make up 16.5 percent of the population in Connecticut can choose from two assisted living facilities in Greenwich and 17 in the surrounding areas. The Connecticut Department of Public Health does not license assisted living facilities individually but instead regulates Assisted Living Service Agencies that provide services for assisted living.

  • Seniors on a budget should note that the cost of living in Greenwich is 202.6 percent higher than the national average. This is mostly due to housing. Grocery and health care costs are only slightly above U.S. averages.

The lady who took me around The Mews was charming. I liked its location. They had a cafeteria style dining but I don't find it very attractive. They didn't have a laundry.
