What to Consider About Assisted Living in Salem

The town of Salem prides itself on being located in a state with a high quality of life, a rural, small-town feel and close proximity to the Boston area. In addition to these perks, seniors in Salem can choose from two assisted living facilities (ALFs) in town, and another 50 located nearby. The policies and regulations for ALFs in Salem are governed by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services and are referred to as Residential Care Facilities. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Salem

  • Crime rates in Salem are much lower than the U.S. averages, so seniors and their loved ones can feel quite safe and secure living in this area.

Property crime is rated at 30.2, which is also lower than the national average of 38.1.

  • The American Lung Association gave a mixed rating to Rockingham County. The area’s Ozone score received a poor grade of D, while the Particle Pollution 24-hour score was an A. Seniors with a severe respiratory illness should consider how this may affect their health.
