    What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Providence

    Home to the Crescent Park Looff Carousel, which is a national historic landmark and among the oldest operating merry-go-rounds in the world, East Providence is a city that brims with history and charm. According to Sperling’s Best Places, East Providence has also repeatedly ranked as one of the best U.S. cities for seniors. Altogether, citizens 55 years of age and older make up an estimated 31.1 percent of the town's population. To help serve this population, East Providence offers four different assisted living communities, with 47 more in neighboring cities such as Providence, Pawtucket and Warwick. Officially known in Rhode Island as Assisted Living Residences (ALRs), these facilities are licensed by the Department of Health, Office of Residences Regulation. ALRs offer room, board, personal assistance and medication administration to residents who don't require a nursing home level of care.
