    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Waterbury

    The City of Waterbury sits on the Naugatuck River and was named for the river and its many tributaries that wind through the city. The Naugatuck River Greenway will allow seniors to wander along the river on new and well-maintained pathways. Assisted living services agencies (ALSAs) in Connecticut are licensed by the Department of Public Health Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section. They are defined as agencies that provide nursing services and help with activities of daily living to people in managed residential communities. There are two assisted living facilities in Waterbury, with a further 54 in nearby areas, including Southbury, Woodbridge and Hamden.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Waterbury

    • The Waterbury area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Waterbury Hospital and St. Mary's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • The City of Waterbury operates the Waterbury Senior Shuttle, providing transportation for medical appointments, grocery shopping and recreation. In addition, CT Transit operates in Waterbury and seniors over the age of 65 travel at half fare.

    • In general, the cost of living in Waterbury is on par with the national average, and 24 percent cheaper than the Connecticut average. However, this is largely because housing is cheap. Seniors will find that groceries, transport and health care are all more expensive than the United States average.

    • Retirement income in Connecticut is subject to income tax, although some seniors receiving Social Security income may be exempt. This means Waterbury may not be affordable for seniors on a low income.

    • Waterbury has a crime rate of 44 per 1000 residents, which is higher than 99 percent of other communities in Connecticut. Both violent crime and property crime are high, with the property crime rate in Waterbury almost double the state average.

    • Winters in Waterbury are cold, with the January low around 17 degrees. In January, the average high is 83. Waterbury also has around 50 inches of rain each year and 37 inches of snow, which can be tough for seniors who like to spend time outdoors.

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Waterbury and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Waterbury

    Seniors in assisted living facilities who receive Social Security Income may be eligible for the Optional State Supplement. The state's Home Care Program for the Elderly does offer assistance to those in select assisted living facilities, but this demonstrator program is not currently available in Waterbury.
