What to Consider About Assisted Living in Somerset

Once a major coal port and vital shipping point, the town of Somerset, Massachusetts, is a culturally-rich waterfront community nestled along the western shores of the Taunton River and Mount Hope Bay. Of its more than 18,000 residents, 22.9% are adults aged 65 year and older. The area is home to 34 facilities known in Somerset, and throughout Massachusetts, as assisted living residences (ALRs), that offer seniors help with activities of daily living. All ALRS in the state are certified and regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA).

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Somerset

  • While higher than the national average of 100 at 115.1, the cost of living in Somerset is much lower than the statewide average of 139. This may be helpful for seniors looking for a more budget-friendly option in the state of Massachusetts.
  • Somerset has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospitals located in Fall River.
  • Compared to other municipalities in Massachusetts, Somerset has lower crime rates, which could reassure families about the safety of loved ones living in an ALR. The town scores 15.3 for violent crime and 21.6 for property crime on a scale to 100, with 100 representing high crime. Statewide numbers are 21.1 and 23.5 in the same categories, respectively.
  • Summers in Somerset are warm and humid with temperatures in the 80s, and winters are cold and wet with around 33 inches of snow expected to fall in a season. Overall, the town's comfort index rating is 44 out of 100.
  • Somerset has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Somerset Council on Aging, an organization that offers programs and services for seniors, including informational seminars, community meals, recreational activities and weekly events, as well as a senior center.
  • The Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA) serves ten communities across southeastern Massachusetts, including Somerset, and offers reduced fares for older adults. The Somerset Council on Aging also provides a free curb-to-curb mini-bus transportation service for anyone 59 or older.
