What to Consider About Assisted Living in Johnston

Conveniently located immediately west of neighboring Providence, Rhode Island’s capital and largest city, the suburban town of Johnston offers seniors a peaceful residential haven and quick access to city amenities. To accommodate its sizeable senior population of 20.5 percent, Johnston has three assisted living facilities, and there are 32 others in surrounding cities and towns, such as Providence, Warwick and East Providence.

These facilities are referred to as assisted living residences (ALRs) and are governed by the Rhode Island Department of Health, Center for Health Facilities Regulation.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Johnston

  • The state of Rhode Island partially taxes security income and fully taxes retirement account withdrawals and private and public pensions. This is in addition to the high cost of living in Johnston, although all prescription drugs and most groceries are exempt from sales tax. These financial factors are important points to consider for retirees with assisted living budget concerns.
  • Being safer than 50 percent of the cities, towns and other areas in the U.S. and with an overall crime rate that's 33 percent lower than other communities in Rhode Island, the town of Johnston offers seniors and their loved ones peace of mind.
  • To get around Johnston and the rest of Rhode Island, low-income seniors and persons with disabilities are eligible for reduced fares on RIPTA (Rhode Island Public Transit Authority) fixed bus routes.
  • The Johnston area is home to world-class medical facilities including Atwood Medical Center, Atmed Treatment Center and Brain & Spine Neurological Institute in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • A variety of arts and culture options are available for seniors in Johnston. Seniors may watch local performances from Johnston Dance and Performing Arts, visit the Clemence-Irons House at a discounted ticket price and participate in activities by the Johnston Senior Center such as quilting, calligraphy, crafts, foreign language and exposure trips outside of town.
  • Johnston has an array of community resources for seniors including Tri-County Community Action Agency, an organization that has dedicated programs for seniors and disabled adults on various forms of assistance on legal, insurance, tax, health, heating and other matters as well as one senior center.
