    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Exeter

    Exeter was a bustling seaport that shipped lumber to England thanks to its location on both the Exeter and Squamscott Rivers. Today the town prides itself on its rich history with the support of the Exeter Historical Society. In addition to history and scenic river views, this area is home to 26 assisted living facilities (ALFs), one within Exeter and another 25 close by. ALFs in New Hampshire are licensed by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and are referred to as Residential Care Facilities. These facilities are defined as communal senior residences, consisting of three or more beds, which provide 24-hour support and assistance with meals, medication and activities of daily living. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Exeter

    • Seniors living in Exeter can enjoy the warm and comfortable summers, but may have concerns during the winter months. Summers have an average high temperature of 82 degrees in July, so outdoorsy seniors can enjoy nature with ease. Seniors with limited mobility may have trouble being active all year round due to the chilly winters, due to the average low temperature of 15 degrees in January and 55 inches of snowfall.

    • The crime rates in Exeter are similar to the national averages, making it a reasonably safe and secure place for seniors to live. Violent crime is rated at 34.6 out of 100 (1 being the safest), which is a little higher than the U.S. average of 31.1. Property crime is rated at 34.1, which is lower than the U.S. average of 38.1.

    • New Hampshire is a tax-friendly area for retirees. Seniors in Salem may have more money to spend on assisted living and entertainment as the state has no state tax. 

    • Seniors with a respiratory illness should consider how living in Exeter may affect their health. While the American Lung Association gave Rockingham County a good Particle Pollution 24-hour score of A, the area’s Ozone score received a poor D ranking in contrast. 

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

    • While there is minimal public transportation in Exeter, residents over 55 can take advantage of the city’s Transportation Assistance for Seacoast Citizens, a ride service program for seniors and the disabled.
