    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Yarmouth

    • While the overall cost of living in Massachusetts is 25 percent higher than the national average, this is mainly due to the high cost of housing.

    • In Massachusetts, Social Security benefits are tax exempt, though most other forms of retirement income are taxable. Seniors who draw an income from pensions or retirement accounts should speak to a tax expert to determine how Massachusetts’ laws will affect them.
