    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Longmeadow

    • The climate in Longmeadow means warm, humid summers and cold winters with plenty of snow. Temperatures in July reach average highs of 84 degrees Fahrenheit, while lows in January get into the teens. Seniors who are sensitive high heat may be more comfortable here, but those who have trouble with snow and ice may not. 

    • Longmeadow's cost of living is 125.7 compared to a U.S. average of 100. Housing costs increase this average, at 170 compared to the U.S. base of 10. Grocery and health care costs are less, however, coming in at 103.5 and 84, respectively. The higher housing costs may increase room and board in assisted living facilities. 

    • Crime rates in the U.S. are measured on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. In Longmeadow, violent crimes rate 24.7 compared to the U.S. average of 31.1. Property crimes are also much lower, at 22 compared to the national average of 38.1. Seniors may move about safely but should remember to take precautions when traveling to the nearby larger cities. 

    • Massachusetts does not tax Social Security income, which may help Longmeadow residents better afford assisted living. Further tax credits include one specifically for those older than 65, as well as certain disabilities and other qualifications, adding more money to seniors' pockets. 

    • Longmeadow is home to world-class medical facilities, including East Longmeadow Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation and Baystate Health Urgent Care in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
