    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Nashua

    Short commute times to popular spots, no sales tax and no income tax have helped Nashua land on Money Magazine's list of the Best Places to Live in the U.S. twice. Seniors who want to live in this "best place" can choose from 30 assisted living facilities in the area, three of which are located directly in Nashua. The Health Facilities Administration regulates these communities on behalf of the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services. This helps ensure elderly residents in Nashua assisted living communities receive the quality care they need in safe, clean facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Nashua

    • Average Nashua temperatures fluctuate from the mid-20s to mid-70s throughout the year. During winter, temperatures often drop into the teens, and snowfall isn't uncommon. The summer months bring rain and warm weather, with average highs in the 70s and 80s.

    • The Nashua area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Joseph Hospital and MassGeneral Hospital for Children, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Nashua has a higher cost of living than the U.S. average, but residents of the city typically don't pay higher expenses than inhabitants of other parts of New Hampshire. Housing is slightly more expensive in Nashua than the rest of the state, but residents typically pay less for transportation, utilities and groceries.

    • Residents of Nashua are covered by New Hampshire tax policies, which means they generally pay no sales tax or income tax. However, there are still taxes for personal property, utilities and tobacco. Also, taxpayers still owe the New Hampshire government a percentage of their earned dividends and interest, which impacts seniors with financial investments.

    • Seniors can sleep soundly in Nashua knowing the city is safer than 46 percent of U.S. cities. Violent crimes are rare, with just 151 reported per year. There is a 1 in 582 chance of experiencing a violent crime in Nashua, which is less risky than the 1 in 506 average for New Hampshire.

    • Hillsborough County, which houses Nashua, has a C rating from the American Lung Association for high ozone days. This is lower than the counties of Belknap and Grafton but better than Rockingham, which has a D rating. Fortunately, Nashua received an A for particle pollution and passed the annual testing for this classification.
