    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Walpole

    Walpole, Massachusetts, is an idyllic suburban town with a population of 24,000, including 3,500 senior citizens. Although Walpole is home to just one assisted living facility, more than 50 other communities are located nearby in Norfolk, Norwood and Wrentham. All facilities that help residents with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, eating and managing medications, are fully regulated by the Massachusetts Executive Office of Elder Affairs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Walpole

    • Even with its convenient location between Boston and Providence, Walpole has a moderate cost of living that's just 23 percent higher than other parts of Massachusetts. As in other desirable areas, housing costs are substantially higher than the national average. Residents also pay slightly more for utilities and transportation.
    • Greater Boston consistently ranks among the nation's top destinations for arts, culture, history and education. By using bus trips and local outings organized by assisted living facilities and travel groups, local seniors can explore the region's many major attractions.
    • Residents enjoy easy access to public transportation and commuter rail lines via Walpole Station. Seniors even qualify for discounted fares through the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. The MBTA and several community organizations also provide door-to-door paratransit service for disabled individuals and their caregivers.
    • The Walpole area is home to several nationally recognized medical facilities, including Massachusetts General, Beth Israel Deaconess, Tufts Medical Center and Brigham and Women's Hospital, in the event of a medical emergency or illness.
    • Walpole has a low crime rate with just 14 incidents per square mile and 11.5 crimes per 1,000 residents. Based on per capita data, the average city in Massachusetts has 150 percent more property crimes and 200 percent more violent crimes than Walpole, which makes this community perfect for individuals of all ages.
    • Every year, Walpole receives approximately 50 inches of rain and 50 inches of snow, which is substantially more than most U.S. cities. Additionally, seniors must endure humid summers with highs in the lower 80s and chilly winters with average lows around 17 degrees. Despite the inclement weather, Walpole's comfort score is only slightly lower than the national average.
