    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Needham

    Needham lies in eastern Massachusetts and is conveniently located just 10 miles west of Boston. Seniors may enjoy exploring Needham’s humble downtown shopping district before returning home to one of three assisted living facilities (ALFs) in town or one of 60 located nearby. The Massachusetts Office of Elder Affairs governs the policies of ALFs. They are defined as facilities that provide a residential setting for seniors and may offer services such as 24-hour supervision, assistance with daily living and medication management.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Needham

    • The Needham area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Seniors with limited mobility may have difficulty navigating the winters due to a heavy snowfall average of 52 inches, which is double the national average of 26 inches. The average low temperature in January is 17 degrees, but seniors can enjoy warm summers with an average temperature of 83 degrees in July, so they can explore walking trails and enjoy outdoor activities with ease.

    • Seniors and their loved ones can feel safe and secure living in Needham due to the low crime rates. Violent crime is rated at 20.2 out of 100 (1 being the safest), which is significantly lower than the national average of 31.1. Property crime is rated at 19.3, quite low compared to the national average of 38.1.

    • The air quality in Needham could be a potential concern for some seniors. While the American Lung Association gave this area a Particle Pollution 24-hour score of A, the ozone score was ranked a D which could aggravate the health of those with a respiratory illness.

    • Seniors can easily get from place to place in Needham using the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority’s public bus system. Buses are handicap accessible and offer discounted fare to seniors. 

    • Seniors who enjoy the performing arts can choose from three theatres located right in Needham: Theater on the Roof, Arlekin Players Theatre, or the Needham Community Theatre

    It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Needham and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.

    Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Needham

    Seniors on a budget who are eligible may apply to the Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI-G), both state Medicaid programs, to receive financial aid for covering assisted living costs. Seniors may also apply to the non-Medicaid plan, the Supportive Senior Housing Initiative Program, for help with these costs.

    Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Massachusetts page.

    More Ways to Pay for Assisted Living

    • Veterans Benefits
    • Life Insurance Policy
    • Long-Term Care Insurance
    • Reverse Mortgage

    For more information about different ways to finance assisted living, visit our Assisted Living in Massachusetts page.

These organizations can also provide assistance in a number of other eldercare services such as geriatric care management, elder law advice, estate planning, finding home care and health and wellness programs.

    To see a list of free assisted living resources in Needham, please visit our Assisted Living in Massachusetts page.
