What to Consider About Assisted Living in Newtown

Newtown is a small, scenic town located about an hour's drive from New York City. With around 15 percent of residents aged 65 or older, there are two assisted living communities in Newtown and over ten in nearby communities to help accommodate the senior population. 

Assisted living facilities are a vital part of any community and provide local seniors with assistance for many of the tasks associated with day-to-day life. In Newtown, and all of Connecticut, these facilities are regulated by The Department of Public Health, Facility Licensing and Investigations Section

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Newtown

  • The weather in Newtown is somewhat favorable for seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors. The average of 175 sunny days annually is slightly less than the nationwide national average of 205 sunny days. Newtown gets 51 inches of rain and 41 inches of snow yearly, which is also slightly higher than the U.S. averages of 39 and 26, respectively. 
  • In Newtown, the overall cost of living is higher than the state and national averages. On a scale with the U.S. median at 100, Newtown rates 146, while Connecticut is rated 118, and they are equal at 106 for healthcare. Families on a tight budget may want to find cheaper places to live in nearby communities. 
  • Crime rates in Newtown are considerably lower than the national averages. On a scale of one to 100, with one being the lowest rate, Newtown scores 13.0 for violent crime and 14.9 for property crime. Both of these scores are around 20 points lower than the U.S. averages.
  • The Newtown area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Danbury.
  • Newton is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP. 
  • Newton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Newtown Senior Center, an organization that provides a focal point for seniors in the community and offers socially enriching activities in a friendly environment.
