What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woodbridge
Just about five miles northwest of downtown New Haven, the charming suburban community of Woodbridge, Connecticut, gives seniors the best of both small-town living and city conveniences including Yale New Haven Hospital. With a small population where a substantial 23% of residents are 65 and above, Woodbridge has two assisted living facilities located within the city and 12 more located in nearby areas.
These facilities are called assisted living service agencies (ALSAs) in Connecticut, and throughout Woodbridge, where they’re defined as residential communities offering assistance in activities of daily living (ADL) and nursing services as needed for adults 55 and older. They are governed by the state’s Department of Public Health through the Facilities Licensing and Investigations Section.

- In Connecticut, social security income, pensions and retirement account withdrawals are taxable. However, some seniors in Woodbridge may be eligible for the Constitution State’s tax relief program.
