    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norwalk

    Just 45 minutes from New York City, the coastal city of Norwalk, Connecticut is home to some of the best boating and public beaches in the state. Its population of close to 90,000 residents includes a 14% demographic of seniors aged 65 and older.

    In Norwalk and its surrounding communities, 22 assisted living facilities are available to provide care for seniors who need help with activities of daily living. The Department of Public Health recognizes two categories of assisted living in Connecticut: assisted living services agencies and residential care homes (RCHs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Norwalk

    • The Norwalk area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Norwalk Hospital and St. Vincent's Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • While winters can be cold, the climate in Norwalk is considered temperate compared to the rest of the state. It scores a 51 out of a possible 100 in terms of its overall comfort index, with average winter temperatures in the 20s and summer highs climbing to the mid-80s.
    • At 149.5, the cost of living in Norwalk exceeds not only the national average of 100, but also the statewide average of 118.4, meaning seniors may need to adjust their spending habits to cover the cost of assisted livings services.
    •  Seniors and their families may be happy to learn that the Stamford-Norwalk metropolitan area is ranked as one of the safest mid-sized cities in America. On a scale to 100, Norwalk receives a 19.9 for violent crime and 27.9 for property crime, lower than the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories.
    • The Norwalk Transit District runs local bus, shuttle and train commuter services across the city and several neighboring communities. Elderly passengers receive a 50% discount. In addition to its fixed routes, Norwalk Transit offers a Wheels2U free on-demand shuttle, as well as Dispatch-A-Ride door-to-door transportation.
    • Norwalk has an array of community resources for seniors, including The Senior Umbrella, an organization that acts as Norwalk's municipal agency for the elderly, as well as a senior center.
