    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rochester

    Spread over 44 square miles of rolling hills, rivers and ponds, Rochester, a.k.a. the “Lilac City,” gives seniors a variety of natural resources to explore. These include New Hampshire's Lakes Region, the White Mountains and the beautiful beaches. Rochester is home to many seniors, with adults aged 65 and older accounting for nearly 17.3% of the city’s population of about 31,400.

    To support elderly residents who need help with some of the activities of daily living while maintaining an independent lifestyle, Rochester offers two assisted living communities. Seniors can choose from another 11 in surrounding areas. The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services Health Facilities Administration is responsible for the oversight of assisted living residences (ALRs) in Rochester and the rest of the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rochester

    • Rochester seniors enjoy a full calendar of cultural and civic activities. The restored historic Rochester Opera House offers an exciting live performance season, and the annual Lilac Family Fun Festival brings 10 days of celebration for all ages in the spring.
    • Kiplinger awarded New Hampshire the No. 9 slot on its best places to retire list for 2018. This is largely due to the tax-friendly lifestyle seniors enjoy in cities, such as Rochester, where the state does not tax Social Security benefits or other retirement income.
    • Rochester scores a property crime rate of 53.6 that’s significantly higher than the national average of 35.4. Seniors should ensure that any assisted living community under consideration is equipped with advanced security systems. Rochester’s violent crime rate of 18.2 out of 100 is a bit lower than the U.S. average of 22.7.
    • The Rochester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Frisbie Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Rochester averages 49 inches of rain and 51 inches of snow, which may be challenging for active seniors. January’s winter low averages 14 degrees, and summer’s high in July averages 82 degrees.
    • Rochester's overall cost of living mirrors the national average, but seniors may pay more for utilities and groceries. However, savings on healthcare and transportation costs along with the desirable tax situation can make up the difference.
