What to Consider About Assisted Living in Haverhill

Haverhill, MA, is a picturesque location offering numerous parks and trails, including Plugs Pond and Riverside Park, where seniors can get out to exercise and enjoy green spaces. Aging adults in Haverhill have five Assisted Living Residences, as assisted living facilities are known officially in Massachusetts, to choose from, with another 51 located in nearby towns including Danvers, Chelmsford and Beverly.

These assisted living residences provide room and board to seniors, along with personal care services that include medication management and assistance with the activities of daily living, such as dressing, grooming and bathing. The Executive Office of Elder Affairs regulates all assisted living residences in the state, including Haverhill. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Haverhill

  • The Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority provides local bus service in and around Haverhill. The city is also connected to Boston by the Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority's commuter rail system, and seniors can take advantage of lower fares on Senior CharlieCards to make the city more accessible. 

  • Haverhill has an array of community resources for seniors, including Elder Services of the Merrimack Valley, an organization that provides financial assistance, a long-term care ombudsman, Meals on Wheels and help navigating the Medicare system, as well as one senior center.

  • Winter typically starts in October in Haverhill, with snow on the ground through much of the season. Freezing temperatures typically stop in about May, and summers can be hot, so this isn't an ideal area for seniors who want to spend time outdoors year round.

  • 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.

  • The cost of living in Haverhill is about 29.2 percent higher than the average cost of living in the United States, but it's significantly lower than than that of nearby Boston, so seniors who want to remain in the state while saving money might choose to settle here.

  • The Haverhill area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baldpate Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
