    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wallingford

    Wallingford was founded in 1670 along the shore of the Quinnipiac River. Today it is home to almost 45,000 people and over 20 percent of the population is aged 65 and over. There are 21 assisted living facilities in Wallingford and nearby communities catering to the seniors in the area who need some help with daily activities but wish to remain mostly independent. Connecticut's Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section licenses these facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wallingford

    • CT Transit runs public transportation in Wallingford and seniors aged 65 and over are eligible for discounted fares. North East Transportation also offers a paratransit service in Wallingford that seniors may be able to utilize.
    • The Wallingford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Yale New Haven Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • The State of the Air 2018 report gave New Haven County, including Wallingford, a failing grade for ozone pollution and a C grade for 24-hour particle pollution. The high pollution levels may have an impact on the health of seniors with respiratory conditions.
    • Wallingford is home to the Paul Mellon Arts Center, which hosts exhibitions, concerts and plays throughout the school year. Seniors interested in concerts may also enjoy seeing a show at Oakdale Theater.
    • Weather in Wallingford can be cold and wet. There are around 115 days of precipitation each year, with 50 inches of rain each year, 11 inches more than the national average. In January the average low temperature is 17 degrees and the town gets around 31 inches of snow each year, five inches more than the U.S. average, which may keep seniors inside more in the winter.
    • The overall crime rate in Wallingford is 14 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 67 percent of Connecticut's other towns and cities. While this seems high for Connecticut, the crime rate is lower than average for communities of a similar size across America. Both violent and property crime rates are lower than the state rate, which may reassure safety-conscious seniors.
