    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Norton

    Norton is a small town in Massachusetts 40 miles from Boston with a history stretching back to colonial times. It's home to Wheaton College and hosts the Dell Technologies Championship match of the PGA Tour each Labor Day.  The population of Norton is just 19,400, 14.8 percent of whom are seniors over 62. There are 15 assisted living facilities in Norton to serve these seniors. The State of Massachusetts regulates assisted living facilities via the Executive Office of Elder Affairs

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Norton

    • Norton weather is warm and humid in the summer and cold and snowy in the winter. July high temperatures average 83 degrees, while January lows dip down to an average of 18. Seniors who are sensitive high heat may be more comfortable here, but those who have trouble with snow and ice may not. 
    • The cost of living in Norton is 125.7 compared to a U.S. average of 100. Housing costs are the biggest factor in the difference — at 185 versus the U.S. average of 100, this may increase assisted living costs. Grocery and health care costs fall more in line with the rest of the country at 105.7 and 84.
    • Crime rates in the U.S. are measured on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. Violent crime rates in Norton are 18 compared to the U.S. average of 31.1. Property crimes are also much lower, at 17.7 compared to the national average of 38.1. It's a safe community, but seniors are advised to use care and common sense when traveling to Boston. 
    • Massachusetts does not tax Social Security income, which may help Norton residents better afford assisted living. There are several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability, including one specifically for those 65 and older. 
    • Norton is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sturdy Memorial Hospital and Morton Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Norton Residents may use the Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) fixed route bus lines to get around Norton and the surrounding communities. Seniors and those with a qualifying disability are eligible for reduced rates.
