    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Plymouth

    Plymouth is a coastal town in Massachusetts and has a great prominence in American history, as it was founded by the Mayflower Pilgrims in 1620. Its population is 59,885 residents as of July 2017, and 20 percent of them are age 65 and over. To support this elderly population, there are eight assisted living facilities in the Plymouth area, with six located in Plymouth and two located in the nearby communities of Duxbury and Kingston.

    In Plymouth, as in the rest of Massachusetts, assisted living facilities are officially known as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs). The state's Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) is responsible for ALR regulation.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Plymouth

    • The climate in Plymouth is relatively comfortable. It gets far less snow than some inland areas during the winter since it's located close to the coast. The area receives around 36 inches of snow per year, much less than other areas of New England. Summers in Plymouth are also pleasant, as the average high is around 80 degrees in July.
    • Crime in Plymouth is relatively moderate compared to the rest of the state and the country. On a scale of one to 100 where one is low crime and 100 is high crime, Plymouth falls at 37.7 for violent crime and 36.3 for property crime. This is right around the state average for violent crime (31.6), but above the state average for property crime (21.1).
    • The cost of living in Plymouth is right on par with the Massachusetts state average. On a cost of living index where the national average is 100, Plymouth is 140, and the Massachusetts average is 139.
    • The Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company (P&B) is a year-round luxury motorcoach service that provides passengers with transportation service to Logan Airport, downtown Boston, the South Shore, Plymouth and all of Cape Cod. Seniors can enjoy reduced fares when they use this transportation service. The Greater Attleboro Taunton Regional Transit Authority (GATRA) provides convenient bus service throughout Plymouth with four public bus routes. Seniors 60 and over enjoy 50 percent reduced fares on these buses.
    • Massachusetts is considered to be moderately tax-friendly for retirees. While income from public pensions and Social Security are fully tax exempt, all other forms of retirement income are taxed at the state's income tax rate, which is 5.1 percent. These include private pensions, IRAs and 401ks.
    • The Plymouth area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital-Plymouth, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
