    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Methuen

    Originally organized as a town in 1725, Methuen, Massachusetts is a historic community of close to 50,000 residents. Around 15% of the population are seniors aged 65 and older who may require some degree of help with activities of daily living. Communities known in Methuen, and throughout the state, as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs) are available to provide this care. There are 38 of these facilities in the Methuen area, all of which are certified and regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA).

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Methuen

    • Seniors in Methuen can enjoy a variety of arts and culture opportunities. The town is home to many historic landmarks, including Nevins Memorial Library, the Searles building, Tenney Gatehouse, and the Civil War Monument, as well the historical Methuen Memorial Music Hall, which houses the Great Organ. Seniors can also enjoy an afternoon at The LOOP, which offers a mix of shops, dining and entertainment in one convenient location, or get active and take a walk on the Methuen Rail Trail.
    • On average, the Methuen area sees some type of precipitation 126 days each year, including about 48 inches of rain and 56 inches of snow annually. Winter temperatures can drop below 20 degrees, though summers are quite comfortable, with highs in the low 80s.
    • Though lower than the statewide average of 139, the cost of living in Methuen is higher than the U.S. national average of 100, which is something that seniors may need to consider when budgeting for an ALR. It receives an index score of 128.8, largely due to high housing costs.
    • Crime rates in Methuen are much lower than the national average, which could offer seniors peace of mind. On a scale to 100, Methuen scores a 13.1 for violent crime and 26.8 for property crime, compared to 22.7 and 35.4 in the same categories on a national level.
    • Methuen has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Methuen Department of Elder Affairs/Council on Aging, an organization that runs the Methuen Senior Activity Center, which offers a gathering place for retirees of all ages and hosts a meal program, weekly scheduled activities, crafting classes and organized day trips.
    • The Merrimack Valley Regional Transit Authority (MVRTA) serves the northeast corner of Massachusetts, including Methuen. Seniors over the age of 60 are eligible for reduced fare rates. The MVRTA's Office of Special Services also offers alternative transportation options for elderly residents, such as EZ Trans curb-to-curb transportation, Ring & Ride and Medi-Ride.
