    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Torrington

    With approximately 34,200 residents, 18.5% of whom are seniors, Torrington is the largest city in Litchfield County. The city is the site of the historic Warner Theater, which was built by Warner Brothers Studios in 1931. Today, the restored theater is a performing arts center. 

    Torrington seniors who need help with daily activities have several assisted living facilities to choose from. There are two facilities within city limits, plus another four in Avon, Litchfield and surrounding towns. Like facilities throughout the state, they’re regulated by the Connecticut State Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Torrington

    • Seniors can book rides on the Rural Transit Dial-a-Ride service to get around Torrington and other communities in northwestern Connecticut. Seniors can ride this curb-to-curb bus for free, though a donation of $1.25 per one-way trip is suggested. Another public transit option in Torrington is the Candystriper, a flexible bus route service. 
    • Hartford-East Hartford, the closest major metropolitan area, was recently ranked among America’s most polluted cities by the American Lung Association. The city ranks 23rd for high ozone days. Ozone can cause breathing problems, and it’s especially dangerous for seniors and people with lung diseases. On high ozone days, seniors may choose to stay indoors. 
    • The Torrington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Charlotte Hungerford Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Kiplinger recently dubbed Connecticut one of the ten least tax-friendly states for retirees. Retirement plans and private pensions are subject to state tax, though military pensions are exempt. Taxpayers who earn less than $50,000 per year don’t have to pay tax on their Social Security benefits, so some seniors may enjoy a lower tax bill. These savings can be used to help pay for assisted living.
    • Compared to other similarly sized cities, Torrington has a relatively low crime rate. Per 1,000 residents, there are only 1.62 violent crimes and 16.16 property crimes. This low crime rate may help seniors feel safe.
    • Seniors who retire in Torrington may appreciate the area’s relatively low cost of living. It’s 3.1% more affordable than the national average, and 18.2% more affordable than the Connecticut norm. This is largely thanks to low housing costs, but transportation costs also contribute.
