    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Smithfield

    The suburban town of Smithfield is just minutes away from Providence, the capital of Rhode Island. Known as the Ocean State's Apple Valley for its abundance of orchards and with 19.7 percent of its population being 65 and above, Smithfield offers a relaxed community for nature-loving seniors.

    Smithfield is home to four assisted living facilities including two in the village of Greenville, and there are 10 others in surrounding towns and cities such as Johnston, Cumberland and Woonsocket. These facilities are licensed to operate as assisted living residences (ALRs) by the Center for Health Facilities Regulation of the Rhode Island Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Smithfield

    • Aside from the relatively chilly winters and pleasantly cool summers that occur in Smithfield, the amount of rainfall is higher than the national average. Seniors and their caregivers need extra precaution during stormy weather conditions.
    • Retirees need to consider the tax landscape of Rhode Island when budgeting for assisted living in Smithfield as Social Security income is partially taxed. Retirement account withdrawals and private and public pensions are fully taxable. However, despite the high cost of living in Smithfield, most groceries and all prescription drugs are exempt from sales tax.
    • Smithville is safer than 60 percent of the communities across the United States where violent crimes occur at small rates, and the majority of crimes committed in the town are under the non-violent theft category.
    • Low-income seniors and persons with disabilities in Smithfield enjoy reduced fares on RIPTA fixed bus routes that let passengers travel around the town and to other areas throughout Rhode Island. Community residents 55+ are also offered transportation to the Smithfield Senior Center and to other destinations within the town such as doctor’s clinics, shops, salons, banks and pharmacies.
    • The friendly community and historic town of Smithfield offers interesting arts and culture activities for seniors. Aside from enjoyable quilting and singing sessions, the Smithfield Senior Center conducts trips to operas in nearby Providence and to other states and countries. Various events are held in the Smith-Appleby Museum such as arts and crafts workshops, musical performances and themed open house tours.
    • The Smithfield area is home to world-class medical facilities including Coastal Medical Greenville and Ocean State Smithfield Urgent Care in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
