    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Andover

    Andover, Massachusetts, is one of the oldest towns in New England, first settled in 1642. Its population estimate as of July 2017 is 35,937 residents, 14.3 percent of whom are age 65 or over. In the Andover area, there are 37 assisted living facilities to help serve this senior population.

    In Andover as in the rest of Massachusetts, assisted living facilities are officially known as Assisted Living Residences, or ALRs, and they are regulated by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Andover

    • The weather in Andover is relatively comfortable throughout much of the year. The average high in July is around 82 degrees and Andover has an average of 201 sunny days a year, so seniors can enjoy plenty of time outdoors. Winters in Andover, however, tend to be cold and snowy, as is the case for much of Massachusetts. On average, Andover receives about 51 inches of snow per year.
    • Compared to the rest of Massachusetts and the entire country overall, Andover is more expensive to live in. On a cost of living index where the national average is 100, Massachusetts sits at 139 and Andover is at 177. Housing is the biggest factor in cost of living differences: Andover's score is 340, compared to the state average of 210. Seniors searching for assisted living communities in Andover may want to keep this in mind as they assess their budgets.
    • Seniors can feel safe living in Andover since crime levels are lower than national averages and averages for the Boston-Cambridge-Newton Metro areas. On a scale of one (low crime) to 100 (high crime), Andover scores 23.2 for violent crime and 22.4 for property crime, lower than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1, respectively. They're also lower than the averages for the surrounding Boston-Cambridge-Newton Metro area, which has a violent crime rate of 34.2 and a property crime rate of 34.5.
    • The Andover area is home to world-class medical facilities, including nearby Lawrence General Hospital and Mass General Hospital in Boston, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Andover has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Council on Aging, an organization that provides input and guidance to the Elder Services Division and the town as a whole. Andover's Elder Services Center coordinates and implements programs designed to meet elderly needs. The town also has one senior center.
    • Massachusetts is moderately tax-friendly towards retirees. The state fully exempts Social Security benefits and income from public pension funds. However, retirement income from a 401k, IRA or private pension are taxed at the state income tax rate of 5.1 percent.
