    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Billerica

    America's Yankee Doodle Town, Billerica, Massachusetts, is located in Middlesex County, about 20 miles from Boston. Of its almost 43,000 residents, around 15% are aged 65 and older, and some may find they could benefit from the daily care and assistance offered at an assisted living residence (ALR). In Billerica and its neighboring communities, there are 39 of these facilities available, all of which are certified and regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Billerica

    • Crime rates in Billerica are especially low, which could be comforting to seniors living on their own or in an ALR. The town receives 11 out of 100 in terms of violent crime and 16 for property crime, compared to the U.S. national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories, respectively.
    • Seniors looking to settle in this area may need to plan their finances carefully. Based on the U.S. national average of 100, the cost of living in Billerica is 146.1, which is also higher than the statewide average of 139.
    • Billerica has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Billerica Council on Aging, an organization that serves as the town's primary resource for aging services, including a Respite Companion Program, transportation and a range of organized programs and activities, as well as a senior center.
    • Despite comfortable summers, Billerica is known to experience harsh winters. Temperatures can drop as low as 17 degrees, and an average of 55 inches of snow is expected each year, which could limit the amount of time active seniors are able to spend enjoying the outdoors.
    • The town is served by the Lowell Regional Transit Authority (LRTA), which offers both a fixed-route service, and Road Runner Dial-A-Ride door-to-door transportation. The Council on Aging also provides a number of transportation options for seniors, such as its local van service for medical appointments and errands and volunteer medical transportation.
    • Billerica has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Lowell and Lexington.
