    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Dartmouth

    Known for its historic farmland and vineyards, Dartmouth is a coastal town in Bristol County with about 20% of the population aged 65 or over. A popular place for retirees, Dartmouth has many assisted living residences (ALRs) available, with three facilities within the town and nine more located in the surrounding area.

    In Dartmouth and Massachusetts as a whole, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) regulates standards for ALRs and provides access to resources for seniors.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Dartmouth

    • While Dartmouth doesn't have much of a problem with particle pollution, ozone levels in Bristol County reported by the American Lung Association are high enough to cause health problems. Seniors with respiratory issues such as asthma, COPD and lung cancer may be significantly impacted.
    • The cost of living in Dartmouth is significantly higher than the national average. Most of this can be attributed to housing costs, with a median home price of $369,900 compared to $219,700 nationally.
    • Winter weather in Dartmouth can be challenging for seniors who have a rough time getting around in the elements. The town receives significant snowfall six months out of the year, getting up to 10.5 inches in January.
    • Dartmouth is a relatively safe area. The violent crime rate per 1,000 residents is 2.13, less than the rate of 3.58 in Massachusetts and 4 nationally.
    • Dartmouth 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.
    • The Dartmouth area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Luke's Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
