    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mystic

    Mystic was once a shipbuilding village and a safe harbor for ships to weather a storm. It is now home to the Mystic Seaport Museum, many old sea captain's houses and around 4,000 people.

    There is a sizable senior population in Mystic with over 29 percent of the population aged 65 and over. There are nine assisted living facilities in the area catering to this population, all licensed by the Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mystic

    • All retirement income is subject to income tax in Connecticut, including pensions, retirement funds and Social Security. Some exemptions are made for Social Security Income for seniors on low incomes. Sales taxes in the state are close to the national average and groceries are exempt, which may help seniors save money for their assisted living budget.
    • The air quality in New London County, including Mystic, is mixed. The county received a B grade for 24-hour particle pollution and a failing grade for ozone pollution in the State of the Air 2018 report. Seniors with respiratory conditions may wish to investigate how this will impact their health.
    • Public transport in Mystic is provided by South East Area Transit (SEAT). Reduced fares are available to riders aged 65 and over. SEAT also has a curb-to-curb paratransit service available for people unable to use the regular service, which some seniors may be able to take advantage of.
    • Seniors interested in arts and culture may enjoy a visit to the Mystic Museum of Art, which has exhibitions as well as workshops for seniors interested in nurturing their own artistic side. Mystic Dark Room presents theater and ballet performances for seniors who enjoy live entertainment.
    • The Mystic area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lawrence + Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The cost of living in Mystic is ranked 140 on the Sperling index, which is 40 points higher than the national average. This is largely due to the high cost of housing and seniors will find that while everyday expenses like groceries and healthcare are still high, they are closer to the national average.
