    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wilton

    Nestled in the Norwalk River Valley of western Connecticut, Wilton is a town of more than 18,000 with a rich history dating back to 1640. Of its residents, 15.4 percent are aged 65 years and older. Members of this demographic who require assistance with daily tasks may find the care they need at an assisted living facility, two of which are located in Wilton, with 48 more in surrounding areas.

    In Wilton, and all of Connecticut, assisted living is split into two categories: assisted living services agencies and residential care homes (RCHs), both of which are licensed to operate by the Department of Public Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wilton

    • For seniors concerned with safety, Wilton is a great option as crime rates are very low. On a scale of 100, with 100 meaning high crime, the town scores 6.4 for violent crime and 12.9 for property crime, which are much lower than the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories.
    • At 200.4, the cost of living in Wilton far exceeds both the U.S. national average of 100 and the Connecticut average of 118.4, which may be a concern for seniors on a tight budget. The largest factor is the cost of housing, which is nearly four times higher than the U.S. average.
    • For the region, Wilton has a pleasant year-round climate, receiving an overall comfort index score of 51 out of 100. Winter temperatures are usually above 20 degrees and summers are warm, with temperatures in the mid-80s, so seniors can enjoy the town's many outdoor recreational opportunities.
    • Wilton has a number of transportation services dedicated to helping seniors get around. The Wilton Parks and Recreation Department runs a local Dial-A-Ride service, and the volunteer-run program FISH provides door-to-door transportation services to medical appointments. Regionally, the same services are available through Norwalk Transit District's Town-to-Town program and ITNCoastalCT.
    • While it receives an overall passing grade, the American Lung Association, gives Fairfield County an F rating in terms of ozone pollution, something seniors with existing respiratory conditions may want to consider.
    • The Wilton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Vincent's Medical Center and Norwalk Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Wilton

    To help seniors afford assisted living services, Connecticut offers state-funded programs in addition to Medicaid waiver programs. For those living at assisted living services agencies, the Connecticut Home Care Program for Elders            (CHCPE) can either cover the cost of care services or the full cost of a facility stay, depending on a senior's income. For seniors in RCHs, the Department of Social Services offers an optional state supplement (OSS) to cover the costs of room and board.
