What to Consider About Assisted Living in Meredith

Meredith is full of natural beauty and lies south of the scenic White Mountain National Forest on the edge of Lake Winnipesaukee. The area is a haven for those who enjoy fishing or walks along the bay. Not only do seniors have their pick of several bodies of water, but three assisted living facilities in town and another seven nearby can accommodate the 18 percent population of elders. 

The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services governs the policies of assisted living facilities, referred to as Residential Care Facilities (RCFs). These facilities create a homelike setting for three or more seniors and offer services such as 24-hour support, medication management and organized social activities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Meredith

  • Meredith has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Laconia.

  • Seniors looking to pinch pennies are in luck in Meredith. New Hampshire is very friendly to retirees, as the state has no sales tax.

  • Seniors living in Meredith have the luxury of fresh and clean air to breathe. The American Lung Association gave Meredith both ozone and particle pollution scores of A. 

  • Meredith offers seniors the chance to experience the arts without the need to travel to the big city. The Winnipesaukee Playhouse hosts a full season each year in a beautiful remodeled New England barn. 

  • Winters are difficult to navigate here in Meredith. With six feet of heavy snowfall and an average low of nine degrees, seniors may not be equipped to handle the weather. Summers are much more relaxed, with a high average of 80 degrees in July.  

  • Property crime in Meredith is rated at 41 out of 100 (1 being the safest). This is only 7 percent higher than the national average, rated at 38.1, so seniors may still feel safe when out of the house.

Paying for Assisted Living in Meredith

Assisted Living costs in Meredith start around $5,255 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of assisted living is $4,000 per month, according to the latest figures from Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey.

It’s important to note that assisted living rates in Meredith and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
