    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Middletown

    Middletown, which gets its name from its location between Newport and Portsmouth, has about 15,930 residents, and nearly one-fifth of them are 65 or older. Seniors may remember one of the town’s famous former residents, John Huston, who was nominated for ten Oscars during his five-decade-long Hollywood career. 

    To care for Middletown’s large senior population, there are two assisted living facilities in town, plus another two in the nearby communities of Tiverton and Portsmouth. The state’s Department of Health is responsible for licensing and inspecting these facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Middletown

    • Rhode Island’s tax policies may leave more money in some seniors’ pockets. A tax exemption of up to $15,000 may be available, depending on a senior’s income. Many seniors don’t need to pay tax on their Social Security benefits. With these tax savings, the cost of assisted living in Middletown may be more affordable.
    • Middletown’s low crime rate may be attractive to seniors. In this safe town, the chance of becoming a victim of a violent crime is just one in 1,005. The town’s property crime rate, at 11.07 per 1,000 residents, is significantly lower than both the state and national averages.
    • The Middletown area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Newport.
    • Middletown has an array of community resources for seniors, including the East Bay Community Action Program, an organization that provides health education workshops, senior-friendly volunteer opportunities and other services for seniors, as well as one senior center.
    • With 31 inches of snow per year, Middletown is slightly snowier than the national average. This may be a selling point for active seniors who enjoy winter sports. 
    • Middletown’s cost of living is 22% higher than the national average, making it a relatively expensive place to retire. The area’s high housing costs are the biggest factor, but groceries and utilities are also pricier than the U.S. norm. However, Middletown is more affordable than nearby Newport.
