What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burlington

Burlington, MA, is a town located in Middlesex County, Massachusetts. Its estimated population as of July 2017 is 27,176 residents, 19.5 percent of whom are 65 or over. In the Burlington area, there are 24 assisted living facilities to accommodate its senior population. Three of them are located in Burlington, and the other 21 are in nearby communities, including Wilmington, Billerica, Waltham and Arlington.

Massachusetts officially refers to assisted living facilities as Assisted Living Residences, or ALRs. They are regulated and awarded certification by the state's Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA).

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Burlington

  • Weather in Burlington is pleasant in the spring, summer and fall. The area has beautiful foliage during the fall months, and summers tend to be warm and pleasant. Winters in Burlington, however, can be challenging, especially for seniors who find snow and cold difficult -- the area receives an average of 55 inches of snow per year.
  • The cost of living in Burlington is slightly higher than the state average of 139, which is based on a cost of living index where the national average is 100. Burlington scores at 165 on this index, which is higher than Massachusetts, but not as high as some other nearby communities. 
  • Burlington has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Burlington Council on Aging, an organization that provides a wide range of activities for seniors, including exercise classes, billiards, cards, board games, low-cost lunches, educational lectures, transportation services and social outings to community and cultural events, as well as one senior center.
  • The Burlington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Burlington's Council on Aging provides senior-only transportation during the week for medical appointments in the area or to Burlington Medical, New England Rehab or Baldwin Place in Woburn. Transportation is also available on Saturdays for shopping and general activities, such as hair appointments.
    • Massachusetts is considered moderately tax-friendly for retirees. The state does not tax Social Security income or public pensions, but it does apply its income tax rate of 5.1 percent to public pension income and IRA and 401k withdrawals.
