What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bedford

Bedford prides itself on being an upscale town located next to Manchester, New Hampshire’s largest city, and just 50 miles from Boston. Bedford is home to four Assisted Living Facilities (ALFs) in town and an additional 16 in the surrounding area. In Bedford, and throughout New Hampshire, ALFs are referred to as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs) and are defined as communal senior residences for three or more individuals. They provide 24-hour support and assistance with meals, medication management and activities of daily living. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services governs the policies of these facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bedford

  • Seniors can enjoy some extra spending money in Bedford because the state of New Hampshire has no state tax. This means taxes are not taken from any retirement income, and no sales tax is paid.

  • The Bedford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Elliot Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 

  • The winters in Bedford are chilly, with an average low temperature is 13 degrees in January and 57 inches of snowfall, which is 31 inches higher than the national average, so seniors may have difficulty being active all year round. The summers are pleasant, however, with an average high temperature of 82 degrees in July, letting seniors enjoy the natural beauty and fresh air.

  • Seniors and their loved ones can feel very safe in Bedford due to the low crime rate. Property crime is 24.3 out of 100 (1 being the safest), and violent crime is 15.8, both of which are below the national averages of 38.1 and 31.1, respectively.

  • Seniors with a respiratory illness or severe asthma could have difficulty on smoggy days in Bedford. The American Lung Association gave an outstanding Particle Pollution 24-hour score of A to this area, but the Ozone score was not so good with a C ranking. 

  • Seniors can enjoy shopping at major retailers in Bedford such as Walmart, Target and Macy’s thanks to the Manchester Transit fixed route bus system. MT buses are accessible to those with mobility devices and provide discounted rates for seniors.
