What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Greenwich

East Greenwich, Rhode Island, is part of the greater Providence metro area. This suburb has plenty of things for seniors to do, from a stroll along the waterfront to shopping in the downtown area. The population of East Greenwich is 13,000, 16% of whom are seniors 65 and older, a group that will likely need accommodations in one of the city's two assisted living facilities. 

Assisted living facilities in Rhode Island are licensed by the Center for Health Facility Regulations. Regulations define these group homes as having a combination of housing, meals and personal assistance.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Greenwich

  • The cost of living in East Greenwich is rated at 149, compared to the national baseline of 100. Housing costs are the main factor, at 245 compared to 100. Higher housing costs may increase the operating costs of assisted living communities and, thus, the fees for residents. Health care, important for seniors in assisted living, is just 82 compared to the national average. 
  • Weather in East Greenwich means cold winters with snow and warm, mild summers. The nearby Atlantic Ocean provides cooling breezes, which seniors who are sensitive to high heat may appreciate. 
  • Crime in the United States is measured on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. The national average for property crimes is 35, while violent crimes are 22. East Greenwich is notably safer than the average, with violent crimes at just 9 and property crimes at 22. However, seniors are advised to use caution when venturing into Providence or nearby Boston. 
  • The East Greenwich area is home to world-class medical facilities, including South County Health Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Rhode Island does not provide any special tax breaks for seniors and is one of just a few states that levies state tax on Social Security income (although only that which is taxed at the federal level). Seniors on a budget may wish to keep this in mind. 
  • Seniors in East Greenwich are eligible for discounted fares on the Providence public transportation system, RIPTA
