    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hopkinton

    Hopkinton, Massachusetts, is best known as the starting point for the Boston Marathon. Located just 30 miles east of Boston, this small town in Middlesex County is a welcoming community. Around 13.3 percent of Hopkinton's population of 15,000 are seniors over 62. For those seeking assistance with daily living tasks, Middlesex County is home to 45 assisted living facilities. Assisted living facilities in Hopkinton, and all of Massachusetts, are regulated through the Executive Office of Elder Affairs

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hopkinton

    • Hopkinton weather is marked by four distinct seasons, warm and humid in the summer and snowy in the winter. July high temperatures average 82 degrees, while January lows dip down to an average of 16. Seniors who are sensitive to high heat may be more comfortable here, but those who have trouble with snow and ice may not. 
    • The cost of living in Hopkinton is 170.7 compared to a U.S. average of 100. Housing costs are the biggest factor in the difference — at 309 compared to the U.S. average of 100 — and this may affect assisted living costs. Grocery and health care costs fall more in line with the rest of the country, at 105.7 and 83 compared to the base of 100. 
    • Crime rates in the U.S. are measured on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. Violent crime rates in Hopkinton are 19.6, compared to the U.S. average of 31.1. Property crimes are also much lower at 18.3, compared to the national average of 38.1. Seniors will enjoy living in a safe community.
    • Massachusetts does not tax Social Security income, which may help Hopkinton residents better afford assisted living. In addition, those over 65 may claim a state tax exemption, and there are several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability. 
    • Hopkinton is home to world-class medical facilities, including Milford Regional Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Hopkinton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Hopkinton Senior Center, an organization that offers socialization opportunities and helpful assistance for seniors, including access to health screens, exercise classes, sewing equipment and opportunities for enrichment.
