What to Consider About Assisted Living in Milford

Milford is a midsize town in Worcester County, Massachusetts, eight miles south of the Upton State Forest and 40 miles southwest of Boston. Seniors make up 13.1 percent of the population here and can choose from three assisted living facilities (ALFs) in town and 17 in the surrounding areas. The Massachusetts Department of Elder Affairs is responsible for the regulation and licensing of ALFs and defines them as facilities that provide room and board and personal care services to seniors. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Milford

  • The cost of living in Milford is 26 percent higher than the U.S. average. However, most of this is due to housing costs, with transportation and groceries comparable to national medians. Health-care costs are lower than the U.S. average, which may benefit seniors who are living on a tight budget. 
     
  • Like the rest of New England, the weather in Milford is seasonal. Summers are warm with highs around 82 degrees. Winters can get very cold, with temperatures dipping to lows around 16 degrees in January. These extreme temperature variations may affect seniors who enjoy the outdoors. 
     
  • Seniors find a lot of local entertainment options in Milford and the surrounding area, including the Pinz entertainment center, Southwick’s Zoo and Patt’s Blueberry Farm. The Milford Senior Center and the Ruth Anne Bleakney Senior Center offer fitness programs, classes, arts and crafts and lunches for seniors. 
     
  • Milford’s crime rate is slightly above the U.S. average, which may be a concern for seniors living here. The city is safer than 49 percent of other U.S. cities, and violent and property crimes garnered scores of 41.5 and 39.9 out of 100, with 100 representing high crime.  
  • Milford has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Milford Council on Aging, an organization that provides seniors with programs to improve their quality of life in the city, as well as two senior centers.
