What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brockton

The Executive Office of Elder Affairs regulates assisted living facilities in Massachusetts. It issues licenses to those that satisfy all the demands of the Assisted Living Certification Regulations, which cover an array of subjects, including resident care, building codes and fire safety. The office investigates complaints made about facilities and conducts surprise inspections to ensure they're complying with the regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brockton

 

  • There are several medical facilities in Brockton and nearby, so seniors shouldn't ever be far from professional care. Good Samaritan Medical Center offers services including orthopedics and cancer care. Signature Healthcare operates several clinics covering an array of medical practices, including stroke and dermatology. Less than 20 minutes away in South Weymouth, South Shore Hospital has the only level 2 trauma center south of Boston.
  • Seniors may appreciate the overall cost of living in Brockton, which has an index of 120.5, seven points below the state average. Transportation is costlier, with an index of 136 against the state's 107.9, but the health care index of 88.8 suggests care is more affordable here because the average index for Massachusetts is 90.2.
  • Brockton's crime rates don't show the city in a good light. This is particularly true of violent crime, which is ranked 52.8 on the scale, far above the national average of 22.5. Property crime is above average too, although the difference isn't as great as it ranks 38.8 while the U.S. average is 35.5. Seniors worried about the city's crime statistics may rest assured knowing that assisted living communities typically have awake staff on duty 24/7 and many install security and surveillance systems for the benefit of their residents.
  • Brockton's temperate climate results in pleasantly warm summers, with highs of around 83 degrees, and chilly winters, with lows of around 18 degrees. Consequently, seniors will need to wrap up in the winter months and expect snow and ice. Although rainfall is high at about 50 inches annually, humidity levels are mild.  
  • Brockton has an overall health cost index of 84.1, which is significantly better than the country's average of 100. The water quality index of 27 is far below the national average of 55, but the air quality index of 70 is above the country's 58. Brockton also scores well in cleaning up contaminated land as part of the EPA's Superfund program, scoring three points more than the national average of 87.
