    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wellesley

    Wellesley is located in Norfolk County, Massachusetts, in the greater Boston area. The town is home to three colleges and is the seventh wealthiest city in the United States according to the Census’ Bureau’s American Community Survey. Seniors make up 14.2 percent of the population here and can choose from one assisted living facility in town and over 70 in the surrounding areas. These communities are regulated and licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Elder Affairs and are defined as facilities that provide room and board and personal care services to seniors. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wellesley

    • The cost of living in Wellesley is 187.8 percent higher than the U.S. average, which could affect seniors living on a budget. The majority of this cost is due to housing and transportation, with health care below average and groceries slightly above. 
       
    • Active seniors who enjoy the outdoors may have difficulty living here, as the winters are extremely cold. Average temperatures in January can drop to 17 degrees Fahrenheit, and the city gets 49 inches of snow annually. Summers fare better with highs of 83 degrees in July, but rainfall is also above average at 48 inches per year. 
       
    • Wellesley provides seniors with plenty of things to do like the Massachusetts Horticultural Society’s The Gardens at Elm Bank, the International Museum of World War II and Morses Pond Beach. The Wellesley Council on Aging Senior Center also offers day trips for seniors. 
       
    • Wellesley is a safe option for seniors, as the crime rate is low.  The city is safer than 75 percent of other U.S. cities, with violent and property crimes receiving low scores of 20.3 and 19.5 out of 100 (high crime), respectively.  
    • The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority has public bus routes through town with reduced fares for seniors over 65. The Wellesley Council on Aging provides a bus for seniors Monday through Friday for transportation to grocery shopping, medical appointments and social engagements, and a Volunteer Drivers Program, which runs 24/7.
       
    • Wellesley has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Wellesley Council on Aging, an organization that provides seniors with programs and services such as classes, transportation and social services, as well as two senior centers.
