    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fall River

    Fall River's motto of "Make It Here" hints at new starts for people of all ages and circumstances, which might be appealing to seniors looking to make a new home in an assisted living facility. Fall River is home to two assisted living residences, which is what the state calls assisted living facilities. In addition, 23 assisted living residences are located in nearby towns including Dartmouth and New Bedford as well as in East Providence and Tiverton, RI. These assisted living facilities all provide personal care to aging adults within a residential community. Personal care services include help with activities of daily living as well as medication management and the assurance of a secure, safe environment. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fall River

    • Fall River is part of the larger metro area surrounding Providence, RI, and residents can take advantage of all the cultural and shopping opportunities in the capital city. Downtown Providence has been restored and is thriving, with a pleasant River Walk along the Providence River so seniors can enjoy a low-cost outing in a nearby city.

    • Fall River has an array of community resources for seniors, including Bristol Elder Services, an organization that provides mobility assistance, counseling and other services, as well as four senior centers.

    • Because Fall River is close to the Narragansett Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, its climate is moderate for the New England region, with snow melting quickly and sea breezes cooling hot summer days. Seniors can enjoy time outdoors between coastal storms.

    • The entire state of Massachusetts 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.

    • Fall River shares its public transportation system, the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority, with nearby New Bedford, with buses connecting towns all along the South Coast of Massachusetts. Senior CharlieCards let those 65 and older take advantage of 70 cent fares.

    • The Worcester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southcoast Charlton Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
