    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chelmsford

    Chelmsford, Massachusetts, was named after Chelmsford, England, and was incorporated in 1655. The area’s 5,467 seniors who make up more than 16% of the city’s population can enjoy a stroll through Veteran’s Memorial Park or along the Bruce Freeman Rail Trail. Seniors who need assistance with their personal care can find support in two assisted living facilities that are located within city limits, or in one of the 45 additional facilities located in surrounding areas such as Salem, Waltham and Weston.

    In Chelmsford, as in all of Massachusetts, these facilities are known as Assisted Living Residences and are certified by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chelmsford

    • The overall cost of living in Chelmsford is 143.9, higher than both the Massachusetts average of 139 and the U.S. average of 100. Although seniors pay less for healthcare here than in other areas of the state or country, they pay more for groceries and transportation, which are both above the national average at 105.7 and 113.4, respectively. Seniors in Chelmsford may have to prepare their monthly budgets carefully.
    • The Chelmsford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lowell General Hospital and Merrimack Valley Cardiology, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The crime rates in Chelmsford are low, which may make safety-cautious seniors feel more secure in their homes or when actively participating in outdoor activities. The city has a violent crime rating of 10.6 and a property crime rating of 22.6, both notably lower than the respective U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
    • Chelmsford is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
    • Massachusetts does not tax seniors on public pensions or Social Security benefits, although retirement savings account income and private pensions are fully taxed. This could affect the amount of money that Chelmsford seniors have to put toward their living expenses.
    • July highs in Chelmsford can hit 83 degrees and winter lows drop down as low as 15, which might make this city an ideal location for seniors who don’t like extreme heat and humidity.
