    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lynnfield

    The town of Lynnfield was first settled in 1638 and is bordered on the north by the Ipswich River and the Lynn Woods Reservation to the southeast. In addition to the beautiful natural setting, seniors in Lynnfield have access to 23 assisted living facilities (ALFs) in the area. These facilities provide a supervised residential setting for seniors and offer assistance with daily living, medication management and meal services. ALFs statewide are under the jurisdiction of the Massachusetts Office of Elder Affairs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lynnfield

    • The Lynnfield area is home to world-class medical facilities, including North Shore Medical Center Union Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Lynnfield has warm summers with average highs of 82 degrees in July, which means seniors can enjoy outdoor activities in comfort. The winters get chilly with average lows of 18 degrees in January and 46 inches of snowfall, so seniors may have difficulties getting around. 

    • Crime rates in Lynnfield are quite low, so seniors and their loved ones can feel safe and secure. Property and violent crime are rated at 22.5 and 23.9 out of 100 respectively (1 being the safest), which are both lower than the national averages of 38.1 and 31.1.

    • Seniors who are living in Lynnfield with a respiratory illness may have some complications in Essex County. While the American Lung Association gave this area a Particle Pollution 24-hour score of A, it received a poor ozone score of D.

    • Seniors can get their fill of art, history and culture in the nearby coastal town of Salem, just 10 miles away. This town is a popular tourist destination with a fully walkable/handicap-accessible pedestrian-only downtown area. Seniors can experience the witch trials at the Witch Dungeon Museum, see the Yin Yu Tang, an 18th century 16-bedroom house flown from China or shop the multiple unique boutiques and restaurants. 

    • While some ALFs in this area may provide shuttle services for running errands or visiting appointments, the city of Lynnfield has no fixed bus routes. This could be a problem for independent seniors who like to keep to their own schedule.
