    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Braintree

    Just ten miles south of Boston, the town of Braintree, Massachusetts, is a suburban community of around 37,000 residents. Rich in history, the town is the birthplace of many prominent American figures, including John Adams, John Quincy Adams and John Hancock.

    Around 17% of the town's population is aged 65 and older. Those who require help with daily tasks can find care at one of the 50 assisted living communities located in Braintree and neighboring municipalities. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) is responsible for certifying and regulating these facilities, which are known in Braintree, and throughout Massachusetts, as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Braintree

    • Braintree is not only home to a number of historic landmarks, but it's just a short ride from Boston, which offers many diverse attractions for seniors to enjoy, including Fenway Park, Boston Public Garden and a number of museums.
    • Seniors can get around Braintree and visit nearby communities with the bus, rail and subway services provided by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA). The MBTA also operates the RIDE door-to-door, shared-ride paratransit service for seniors unable to use its regular service.
    • Winters in Braintree are cold and snowy, though they are warmer than many other cities across the state. Lows tend to hover around 20 degrees, and the area can expect 46 inches of snow on average each year, which may not suit the lifestyles of some seniors.
    • Braintree is considered to be a safe community for seniors. In terms of violent crime, the town scores 14.4 out of 100, lower than both the national average of 22.7 and statewide average of 21.1.
    • At 163, the overall cost of living in Braintree is considered quite high compared to the U.S. national average of 100. While housing and transportation costs are high, the area's low health-related costs may be beneficial to seniors.
    • Braintree has an array of community resources for seniors, including South Shore Elder Services Inc., an organization that offers a variety of services, including a friendly visitor program to provide companionship, as well as a senior center run by the Department of Elder Affairs and the Marge Crispin Center that offers programs to assist the elderly.

    Note: Data reported on this page was updated in 2019 and based on the latest 2018 figures.
