    What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Hartford

    West Hartford, located in central Connecticut, is one of the 50 best places to live in the United States, according to Money magazine. Nearly 18 percent of the town’s 63,000 residents are seniors. With 23 assisted living facilities in West Hartford itself, and another 113 in the surrounding towns, local seniors have many choices.

    Connecticut’s assisted living facilities are home to seniors who need assistance with personal care tasks. These facilities are licensed as assisted living services agencies by the Connecticut State Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Hartford

    • The West Hartford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Hartford Hospital and UConn John Dempsey Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.
    • Winters in West Hartford are cold and snowy, with lows in the teens and an average of 36 inches of snow per year. However, summers are warm, with highs in the 80s. Seniors who participate in winter activities, like snowshoeing, may appreciate the climate.
    • West Hartford’s cost of living is 27.6 percent higher than the national average. Housing costs are the biggest factor, though other budget categories, such as healthcare and transportation, are also more expensive. Other towns in Connecticut may be more suitable for seniors on tight budgets.
    • Connecticut has been ranked one of the least tax-friendly states for retirees by Kiplinger. Social Security benefits aren’t exempt from state income tax, and neither are retirement plans or private pensions. Seniors who want to lower their tax burdens may want to consider retiring elsewhere.
    • Seniors in West Hartford can browse the town’s many museums and galleries, including the Noah Webster House and West Hartford Historical Society. They can also visit any of the town’s 39 historic sites, such as the Sarah Whitman Hooker House. Concerts, plays and sporting events are offered year-round at the nearby University of Hartford.
    • West Hartford has one of the highest crime rates in the state. Its crime rate is higher than 95 percent of communities in Connecticut. This is largely driven by property crime, and the risk of becoming a victim of violent crime is extremely low: only 1 in 942.
