What to Consider About Assisted Living in Quincy

The Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs is directly responsible for licensing, monitoring and regulating assisted living facilities in the state. Its work includes making unannounced inspections to ensure facilities are complying with the Assisted Living Certification Regulations. Facilities found to be noncompliant can have their licenses revoked if they fail to raise their standards within a stipulated time period.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Quincy

  • Massachusetts is among the top 5 most expensive states in the union, so it’s not surprising that Sperling’s Best Places records the average cost of living in Quincy as significantly more than the national average. However, it also found that health care costs, which include assisted living, are below the costs paid in the typical American city. 
  • It would be unfair to compare Quincy’s climate with that of some southern states. However, when compared to other cities in the region, Quincy’s seniors enjoy more favorable conditions. Although the area sees 45 inches of snow per year, far above the national average of 28, there are also 202 sunny days, only three short of the average. Temperatures drop to a chilly 20 degrees in the winter months but this is offset by summer temperatures that regularly reach 82 degrees.
  • The health of Quincy’s seniors is capably served by a large number of hospitals in the surrounding area. The primary facility is the South Shore Medical Center, while the Boston metro area contains some of the finest hospitals in the country, such as Massachusetts General Hospital, ranked #5 by U.S. News & World Report. 
  • Although instances of violent crime are about the same, Quincy experiences much less property crime, making it generally safer than the average city. Also, crime tends to target specific areas, such as the neighborhoods nearest the city’s center. A benefit for seniors in assisted living is that many facilities provide 24/7 surveillance and security and there’s almost always a staff member nearby.
  • Seniors without other means of transport can easily get around Quincy. The Medical Transportation Program is a free service that can take them to medical appointments within the city and to major Boston hospitals. The Trans-Van Program for Social Transportation is fee-based (although subsidized), costing $25 for every three months. This service can take seniors anywhere within the city for any purpose.

Paying for Assisted Living in Quincy

According to the 2020 Genworth Cost of Care Survey, the typical monthly fee for an assisted living placement in Quincy is $6,100. This is $15 per month more than the state average and significantly above the national average of $4,300. 

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

Barnstable is the only city in Massachusetts with higher costs than Quincy, averaging $6,338. More affordable options are available, such as Springfield at $5,750 per month and Worcester at $5,488.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Seniors fit enough to attend adult day health care centers can get looked after during the day for around $1,782 per month in Quincy. Those who are housebound will need to pay more for professional caregivers to come to them, typically $5,720, regardless of the service including basic medical support or not. For an additional $380 per month, seniors can live in an assisted living facility, getting on-site care and accommodation for the cost difference. Nursing home care is traditionally more expensive, due to the intensity and diversity of the care involved. A typical semiprivate room in Quincy costs $13,383, while another $1,126 gets a private room.

Free Assisted Living Resources in Quincy

Quincy’s seniors live in a city and state that offers an array of free and subsidized resources. The examples below include ways of using retirement time productively, reducing care costs, and getting help if care providers fail their residents. 

ResourceContactService
MassHealth(800) 841-2900Masshealth is the Medicaid program for Massachusetts. Although it can't pay for room and board in an assisted living facility, it can, under specific circumstances, cover some costs, such as medications and transport to medical appointments. An alternative for seniors who don't qualify is the Personal Care Attendant program, which enables the senior to pay a personally chosen caregiver directly from benefits provided by the program.
Assisted Living Ombudsman(617) 727-7750Seniors in assisted living facilities who can't resolve disputes with their care providers can call on the Assisted Living Ombudsman for help. The ombudsman advocates for seniors, investigates their complaints and seeks resolutions that are agreeable to them. If a complaint suggests criminal behavior, such as elder abuse, the ombudsman will refer it to the proper authority.
SHINE - Medicare(617) 376-1247SHINE is a state-funded service that aids seniors with Medicare and those preparing to enroll. SHINE counselors provide confidential and impartial information, advice and support to seniors planning for their long-term health care. The counselors can help seniors understand their Medicare plans and identify the best options for their needs. Sometimes, this may include suggesting private health care insurance, although the counselor will not try to sell seniors private plans.
Veterans Services(617) 376-1192Veterans Service Officers (VSO) are veterans who help other vets identify and access the local, state, federal, and veterans benefits they're entitled to. They can also help with applications. These benefits can potentially include tax exemptions, low-cost insurance and VA Aid and Attendance payments, which can help meet some residential care costs.
RSVP Volunteer Services(781) 329-5728RSVP connects seniors who want to help their communities with a wide range of nonprofit organizations and government departments looking for volunteers. These can include large organizations, such as the American Red Cross, and small local charities. The senior decides how much time they can spare and the type of work they have the skills for and RSVP finds the nonprofit that fits.
