What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cranston

Cranston, Rhode Island's third largest city, has also been rated one of the state's best places to retire. Residents age 55 or older make up more than a quarter of the city's population. For those seniors considering moving into an assisted living facility, the Cranston area is home to 41 different choices, two in Cranston's city limits and 39 more in nearby cities such as Warwick and Providence. Formally known in Rhode Island as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs), these facilities are licensed by the Department of Health, Office of Residences Regulation. ALRs are defined by the state as facilities for two or more adults that offer room, board, personal assistance and medication administration. They don't provide a nursing home level of care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cranston

  • Cranston's climate features warm, humid summers with an average high temperature of 82 degrees and cold winters with lows around 20 degrees.
  • Cranston's cost of living is 15.6 percent higher than the U.S. average. Seniors living in assisted living residences in the city can expect to pay more than the national average for groceries and healthcare, 9.3 and 13 percent, respectively.
  • Unfortunately, Rhode Island doesn't provide any tax breaks for seniors. All types of retirement income, including pensions and Social Security, are taxable by the state.
  • Cranston gets high marks for safety, with an overall crime rate 29 percent, lower than the U.S. average, so seniors on day trips can feel more safe and secure.
  • The Rhode Island Public Transit Authority, or RIPTA, provides public transportation, mainly by bus. Persons 65 years of age or older with low incomes may be eligible for assistance through RIPTA’s Reduced Fare Bus Pass Program for Low-Income Seniors and People with Disabilities. All seniors, regardless of income, can travel at a reduced rate during off-peak hours.
  • The Cranston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Rhode Island Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
