    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Worcester

    "The Heart of the Commonwealth," Worcester, Mass., is a mid-sized city with a population of over 185,000. Approximately 20 percent are college students at one of the nine colleges in the city while seniors ages 65 and over make up over 12 percent of the city's residents.

    Worcester is home to seven assisted living residences, as assisted living facilities are called in Massachusetts, with another 27 in nearby communities, including Framingham, Shrewsbury and Auburn. In these facilities, aging adults can receive personal care services in addition to room and board. Personal care services typically include assistance with grooming, dressing, bathing and medication management. Within the state of Massachusetts, the Executive Office of Elder Affairs regulates assisted living residences.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Worcester

    • Worcester has a long history as a cultural center for Central Massachusetts. Locals go to The Hanover Theatre to see touring Broadway productions and concerts, while the Worcester Art Museum serves as the flagship for the local arts community. The arts and cultural offerings available in Boston are about an hour's drive away.

    • The entire state of Massachusetts is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.

    • Worcester's weather is comparatively moderate thanks to the mountains to the west, which protect the city against storm systems. Residents can expect cold snaps in the winter, with winter lows averaging 17 degrees Fahrenheit, and summertime thunderstorms.

    • The Worcester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UMass Memorial Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Even though Worcester is less than 50 miles from Boston, where certain neighborhoods have a cost of living double the national average, Worcester's cost of living sits at only 6.8 percent above the national average.

    • Worcester has an array of community resources for seniors, including Elder Services of Worcester Area, an organization that assists seniors with money management and protective services, as well as a dedicated senior center and another five senior dining centers.
