    What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Longmeadow

    The town of East Longmeadow, which is situated just five miles southeast of downtown Springfield, has a population of a little over 16,000 people. This town has a large senior community, which comprises over 20 percent of the total population. While this small town only has two assisted living communities to support the senior population of more than 3,200 people, seniors who are willing to look out farther will find another 13 facilities.

    In East Longmeadow, as in all of Massachusetts, assisted living facilities are officially known as assisted living residences (ALRs) and provide supportive services that allow seniors to age in place, even as their care needs evolve. All facilities are certified and regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Longmeadow

    • The overall cost of living in East Longmeadow is about 13 percent higher than the national average, which may be a concern for seniors on a tight budget. However, healthcare costs come in about 16 percent below the U.S. average, which may offset the higher cost of groceries and transportation. 
    • While East Longmeadow seniors don't pay taxes on their Social Security benefits, most other forms of retirement income are taxable in Massachusetts. 
    • The rate of violent crime in East Longmeadow is quite low, ranking at 13.5 on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. This is compared to the national average of 31.1. The rate of property crime is higher at 32.6, though it is still lower than the national average of 38.1. These low crime rates may provide peace of mind to seniors as they transition to assisted living in this town. 
    • The Tri-Town Trolley senior van service provides low-cost transportation in town and outside of East Longmeadow. This shuttle service operates Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. On Tuesdays, an additional shuttle is available to take seniors to local shopping centers.    
    • The East Longmeadow has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Springfield. 
    • East Longmeadow has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Council on Aging, an organization that provides services like support groups, exercise programs and a health equipment loaning closet, as well as one senior center.
