What to Consider About Assisted Living in Agawam

Tucked away in Hampden County near the Connecticut border, Agawam, Massachusetts, is a charming colonial city with nearly 400 years of history. This town of 28,000 has a vibrant senior community that represents almost 17 percent of its population. Agawam's senior citizens are served by four assisted living facilities. More than a dozen additional communities overseen by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs are located in greater Springfield.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Agawam

  • Since 2017, Agawam has been a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. According to AARP, this means that elected leaders are dedicated to making their town, city or county a great place for residents of all ages.

  • As part of this commitment, Agawam has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Agawam Council on Aging, an organization that is dedicated to "meeting the information, service and recreation needs of older adults" while promoting "a spirit of healthy, positive aging." The community also has six senior centers.

  • Thanks to its distance from Boston's bustling streets, Hampden County has excellent air quality. The American Lung Association found that the Springfield-Greenfield Town statistical area had some of the nation's lowest levels of particulates, which benefits seniors and other at-risk groups.

  • Agawam's blustery winter weather can keep seniors indoors for several months of the year. Compared to the average U.S. city, Agawam has a lower comfort score since it receives more rain and almost twice as much snow. In the summer, average highs and lows are between 85 and 68 degrees versus 42 and 29 degrees during the winter.
  • Although Agawam has a moderate crime rate, the city is safer than 35 percent of U.S. cities. Compared to Massachusetts as a whole, seniors in this community experience a slightly higher rate of property crimes and a lower rate of violent crimes.

  • For seniors who depend on a fixed income, Agawam offers a competitive cost of living that is lower than the rest of Massachusetts and on par with most of the country. Residents spend slightly more on housing and utilities but less on health care.
