    • South Yarmouth is home to world-class medical facilities, including Cape Cod Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Massachusetts does not tax Social Security income, which may leave more money available for assisted living costs. There is a specific state tax exemption for those over 65, as well as several other exemptions for seniors and those with a qualifying disability.
