What to Consider About Assisted Living in Southbury

Southbury's town seal reads Unica Unaque, or "The One and Only," because it's the only community in the United States with that name. Seniors who retire to the community will find historic districts and a rural character that comes from the town's agricultural roots.

Over 28 percent of Southbury's 19,500 residents are aged 65 and over. There are 32 assisted living facilities in the area catering to the town's seniors. Connecticut's Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section licenses and monitors these facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Southbury

  • The Town of Southbury has a service available for residents aged 60 and older. Passengers can schedule rides around Southbury and out of town for a small fee.
  • Southbury's crime rate is lower than 77 percent of other towns and cities in the U.S. When compared to towns of a similar size, the crime rate is one of the lowest in the nation. The property crime rate of 7.41 crimes per 1,000 residents is ten points lower than the Connecticut rate and violent crime is also low. This may reassure seniors who are concerned about their safety. 
  • The Sperling index rates Southbury's overall cost of living at 125, 25 points higher than the national average of 100. Healthcare costs are seven points higher than the U.S. average, which may impact the budget of seniors with health conditions.
  • The Southbury area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Waterbury Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • All retirement income in Connecticut is subject to state income tax, although Social Security income is exempt for some seniors. Sales taxes in the state are among the bottom half of U.S. states and groceries are exempt from sales taxes, which can help the budget of seniors who are on a fixed income.
  • New Haven County, including Southbury, has relatively poor air quality. The State of the Air 2018 report gave the county a "C" grade for 24-hour particle pollution and a failing grade for ozone pollution, which exacerbate health problems for seniors with respiratory conditions.
