    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Winchester

    A small suburban town just north of Boston with a senior population of close to 3,900, Winchester is listed as one of the best places to live in Massachusetts. To accommodate those who need assistance with daily living tasks like grooming, meals and medication administration, Winchester has 39 assisted living facilities nearby.

    In Winchester, assisted living facilities are referred to as assisted living residences (ALRs). They are regulated by the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. The town and state also have an adult foster care (AFC) program that is designed for frail and elderly adults and seniors with disabilities who can’t live alone but prefer a family setting rather than a nursing home or facility.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Winchester

    • Winchester has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Winchester Council on Aging, an organization that helps match seniors with available services in the area, as well as one senior center.
    • The cost of living index in Winchester is considerably higher than the national average of 100. The cost of living in Winchester is 238.6. Seniors on a budget who are paying for assisted living may find it difficult to make ends meet or save money when living in the area.
    • Crime is relatively low in Winchester when comparing the city crime rate with the national average. For property crime, the city ranks 15.2, which is lower than the national average of 35.4. For violent crime, the city is ranked 8.3, which is lower than the national average of 22.7.
    • Cold winters with average January lows of 19 and above average amounts of snowfall may be too much for seniors who are sensitive to the cold. Summers are mild with average July highs around 82.
    • Winchester is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Winchester Hospital in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • The Minutemen Senior Services helps link seniors in Winchester with available transportation for doctor’s appointments and other outings. This service includes the senior taxi program, and wheelchair accessible vans and minivans.
