    The town of Dedham, Massachusetts, is located on Boston's southwest border. Its population estimate as of July 2017 is 25,364 residents, and of those, 19.8 percent are age 65 or over. There are 26 assisted living facilities, known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs), in the Dedham area to help serve this population of seniors. Three of them are located within the Dedham town limits, and the other 23 are located in nearby communities, including Brighton, Walpole, Needham, Chestnut Hill, Newton and Boston.

The average high in July is around 83 degrees, and the area gets about 201 sunny days per year. Winters in Dedham can be cold and snowy, which may be challenging for seniors who find winter difficult. Dedham receives an average of 55 inches of snow each year, well above the national average of 26 inches.
    • Dedham is a relatively safe place to live for seniors. Incidents of violent and property crime are infrequent and either on par with or below national averages. On a scale of one to 100 with one being low crime and 100 being high crime, Dedham's violent crime is 33.2, right around the U.S. average of 31.1, and property crime is 32.5, below the national average of 38.1.
    • Cost of living in Dedham is relatively expensive compared to other parts of the country and Massachusetts, so seniors will want to keep this information in mind as they search for assisted living facilities. On a cost of living index based on a U.S. average of 100, Dedham's cost of living is 160.8. This is above the Massachusetts average of 139.
    • Dedham has its own local bus service that stops in popular places in town, including the Dedham Mall, East Dedham, Dedham Square, Legacy Place and Endicott Station, which is also where the MBTA's Commuter Rail service stops as part of the Franklin route. Seniors can enjoy a discounted fare rate of $1.

    • Massachusetts is moderately tax-friendly towards retired seniors. Income from Social Security and public pensions are fully tax exempt. However, income received from IRAs, 401ks or private pension funds are fully taxed at the state rate of 5.1 percent.
