    What to Consider About Assisted Living in South Windsor

    South Windsor is a suburb of Hartford, Connecticut, with a large senior population. Of the community’s nearly 26,000 residents, 17.2 percent are age 65 or older, and they are served by the 17 assisted living facilities in the South Windsor area.

    These facilities, like those in the rest of the state, are classified as assisted living services agencies or residential care homes. They’re regulated by the Connecticut Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in South Windsor

    • With winter lows in the teens and summer highs in the 80s, this community has a less comfortable climate than the national average. South Windsor is also snowier and rainier, which may not be ideal for active seniors who want to spend time outdoors.
    • The cost of living in South Windsor is 18.5 percent higher than the U.S. average. The biggest factor in South Windsor’s high cost of living is housing, though utilities and transportation are also more expensive than the national norm. This may pose challenges for seniors who are living on a fixed income.
    • Senior residents of South Windsor have access to a wheelchair-accessible, door-to-door bus service. Trips must be scheduled in advance, and medical appointments receive top priority. Seniors can also use the bus service for errands and out-of-town shopping trips.
    • In Connecticut, 78 percent of communities have a lower crime rate than South Windsor. Residents of South Windsor have a 1 in 57 chance of becoming a victim of a property or violent crime. For safety conscious seniors, other communities in Connecticut may be more appealing.
    • South Windsor has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Fit for Life Fitness Center, a facility that provides low-cost access to exercise equipment. The town’s Adventure Club, which is open to people 55 years and older, allows seniors to participate in kayaking, ziplining and other activities.
    • South Windsor has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Hartford, Connecticut. Seniors with serious health conditions may prefer to live closer to a major hospital.
