What to Consider About Assisted Living in Suffield

Suffield is a small town in northern Connecticut that lies close to the Massachusetts border. It's currently home to around 15,500 people, with a sizable senior population of 15 percent. There is one assisted living facility in Suffield offering accommodation to seniors, and another 39 in nearby communities in both Connecticut and Massachusetts.

The facilities in Connecticut are licensed by the Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section, and are referred to as Assisted Living Services Agencies (ALSAs).

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Suffield

  • The Town of Suffield provides transportation to seniors through The Mini Bus. The service has a general schedule that takes seniors to appointments, shopping and personal errands and may also be able to accommodate special requests.

  • Suffield has advantages for safety-conscious seniors. The violent crime rate is only 0.58 per 1,000 residents, and property crime is equally low at a rate of 6.18, which is a third of the Connecticut average. Overall, Suffield is safer than 83 percent of U.S. towns and cities.

  • Air quality in Hartford County, including Suffield, is mixed. Although the American Lung Association gives particle pollution in Hartford County an A grade, ozone pollution is high and receives a failing grade. This may require further investigation for seniors with respiratory conditions.

  • Winters in Suffield can be harsh, with an average of 46 inches of snow each year. The average low temperature in January is just 17 degrees, and the city sees some kind of precipitation, either rain, snow, sleet or hail, 78 days each year.

  • The Suffield area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Stafford Springs.

  • The cost of living in Suffield is around 25 percent higher than the U.S. average. Seniors in the town pay more for essentials like groceries, transport and health care, which can impact their retirement budget.
