    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Canton

    Chosen by Paul Revere to be the home of America's first copper rolling mill,  Canton, Massachusetts, is part of the Greater Boston area, located just 15 miles from the capital city's downtown core. The town is home to close to 23,000 residents, over 18% of whom are aged 65 and older.

    Seniors who find themselves in need of assistance with daily tasks can get the help they need at an assisted living residence (ALR), 50 of which are available in Canton and the surrounding communities. Across the state, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) is responsible for certifying and regulating these facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Canton

    • Canton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Canton Council on Aging, an organization that seeks to identify the needs of local seniors and provide support, education and information services, as well as a senior center.
    • The cost of living in Canton is rated 167.6, something that budget-conscious seniors may want to take into consideration as it's higher than both the U.S. national average of 100 and statewide average of 139.
    • Safety can be an important factor for seniors, which may make Canton an appealing choice as crime rates are very low. Violent crime is rated 15.1 and property crime scores 18.8 on a scale to 100, with 100 representing high crime. These rates are lower than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories.
    • Communities across eastern Massachusetts, including Canton, are served by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority (MBTA). Adults aged 65 and older are eligible for reduced fares on fixed route services. Seniors who are unable to use the regular service can get around town with MBTA's RIDE door-to-door, shared-ride paratransit service.
    • Canton has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Stoughton and Boston.
    • With its rich history, Canton has plenty of arts and culture for seniors to enjoy, including the architectural delights of the Canton Corner Historic District, Museum of American Bird Art and the Eleanor Cabot Bradley Estate.
