    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Westbrook

    Westbrook became its own town in 1814 after breaking from the larger city of Falmouth. This area lies on the Presumpscott River and was an industrious mill town until late into the 20th century. Today, seniors can stroll along the river and canal systems or relax with a round of golf at the Sunset Ridge Golf Course. In addition to ample leisure activities, the greater Westrbook area offers 30 Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) for seniors to choose from. These ALFs, or Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) as they’re referred to in Westbrook, are licensed by the Maine Department of Health and Human Services to provide personal care services for seniors in a homelike setting.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Westbrook

    • Westbrook is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    • The Westbrook area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mercy Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Westbrook is home to comfortable summers and chilly winters. The average high temperature in July is 79 degrees, so seniors can enjoy walking trails and activities easily, but the winters can make it hard to be active all year round due to the average low temperature in January being 12 degrees and bringing in an average of 68 inches of snowfall.

    • Seniors and their loved ones can feel relatively safe in Westbrook due to the low crime rate. Violent crime is quite low at 13.5 out of 100 (1 being the safest), compared to the national average of 31.1. However, the property crime is rated at 48.8, which is a bit higher than the national average of 38.1.

    • Seniors with a respiratory illness shouldn’t be adversely affected in Westbrook. The American Lung Association gave Cumberland County’s Ozone a solid B rating and an A for their Particle Pollution 24-hour score. 

    • Seniors can take advantage of the Greater Portland Metro bus system which has a route that runs through Westbrook. GP Metro buses are handicapped accessible and discounted for those over 55, so seniors can run errands and visit appointments with ease.
