    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Waltham

    Waltham, Massachusetts, is a historic city located just outside of Boston. In the mid-1800s, the Waltham Watch Company became the first American company to mass produce pocket watches. The company’s success earned Waltham the nickname “Watch City.” The city has just over 60,000 residents, and approximately 13% are seniors. Within city limits, there are three assisted living facilities, and another 36 are located nearby.

    Waltham’s assisted living facilities, like those in the rest of the state, are licensed by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Waltham

    • There are many arts and culture opportunities for Waltham seniors. They can visit the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation to learn about the area’s role in the Industrial Revolution. The city’s famous watch factory is now home to an upscale restaurant. Nearby Boston is home to more historical attractions, including the Boston Tea Party Ship & Museum.
    • Compared to other similarly sized cities across the country, Waltham has a low crime rate. Residents of this city have a 1 in 77 chance of becoming a victim of a property or violent crime. Seniors who want to live in a safe, small city may choose to relocate to Waltham.
    • The Waltham area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mass General Waltham, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • While the state is known for its high cost of living, Waltham is expensive even by Massachusetts standards. The city’s seniors will encounter housing prices that are over three times the national average. Other budget items, such as transportation and groceries, are also pricier in this city.
    • Seniors who dislike winter weather conditions may prefer to retire elsewhere. In Waltham, an average of 50 inches of snow falls each year, nearly twice the U.S. average. Winter lows can drop into the teens.
    • The American Lung Association ranks the Boston-Worcester-Providence metropolitan area among the top 50 most polluted cities for two air quality measures: high ozone days and annual particle pollution. Seniors with respiratory conditions may prefer to live somewhere with cleaner air.
