    What to Consider About Assisted Living in New Haven

    The city of New Haven, known as The Elm City, is home to Yale University, Yale Hospital, The Shubert Theatre, and half a dozen museums. Seniors living near here will find a plethora of events featuring diverse music, art, history and food. 

    There are no assisted living facilities in the city of New Haven. The majority are found in nearby areas throughout New Haven County in locations such as Woodbridge, Southbury, Wallingford, and Hamden, Meriden, Waterbury and West Haven. All assisted living communities in Connecticut are regulated by the Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in New Haven

    • New Haven has a temperate climate, which means it has cool winters and hot summers. Winter temperatures average in the 20s while summers average in the 80s. There is no dry season in Connecticut with precipitation falling an average of 72 days a year. That doesn’t mean it’s ever cloudy, because New Haven has an average of 205 sunny days per year.

    • The cost of living in New Haven is only a little bit above national average. With the U.S. national average at 100, New Haven is at 108. Purchases such as groceries, health care, transportation and utilities are all higher than national average. However, the cost of housing is lower which benefits seniors staying at assisted living facilities.

    • Unfortunately, New Haven has a very high crime rate when compared to national average. Violent crime is the most common consisting of assault, murder and physical robbery. The New Haven violent crime average is 91 with 100 being the most violent. Property crime is also high. U.S. average for property crime is 38 while New Haven sits at 64. The fear of crime might deter seniors from choosing to live in the area.

    • For the majority of residents in Connecticut, Social Security benefits are not taxable. That means you get to keep all of your check for your own use. The only exceptions are single filers that have a federal AGI at or over $50,000 and joint filers with a federal AGI at or over $60,000. These residents must pay partial taxes on benefits.

    • New Haven is home to the Yale New Haven hospital, which is one of the largest hospitals in the entire world. It is also one of the highest ranked hospitals, according to US News, with high ranks in geriatrics, heart surgery and diabetes.

    • The Department of Elderly Services in New Haven provides assistance to senior residence on financial, house or legal needs. The service runs three senior centers: Atwater, Dixwell/Newhallville and East Shore. All three host events to keep members active and happy.
