    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woonsocket

    Woonsocket, located on the Blackstone River in northern Rhode Island, has a long industrial history. Its first textile mill opened in 1810, and by the middle of the century, Woonsocket was one of the largest textile manufacturing centers in the country. While the mills are now closed, the city of approximately 41,600 people is still a major urban center.

    Nearly 14% of Woonsocket’s residents are seniors, and if they need help with activities of daily living, they can visit any of the nine assisted living facilities in the area. In Woonsocket, these facilities are licensed by the Center for Health Facilities Regulation, a division of the Rhode Island Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Woonsocket

    • Woonsocket has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Providence.
    • The city offers some cultural opportunities that may interest seniors. The St. Ann Arts and Cultural Center is home to a large collection of fresco paintings. At the Museum of Work and Culture, seniors can learn about the city’s early immigrants and industrial past. 
    • In Woonsocket, winters are cold and snowy. January lows dip into the teens, and 51 inches of snow falls each year, on average. Summers are mild, with highs in the 80s. These distinct seasons are ideal for seniors who enjoy both summer and winter sports.
    • Woonsocket’s cost of living is lower than the Rhode Island average, but it’s still 10.1% more expensive than the national norm. Housing, utilities and transportation tend to cost more here. However, health care costs are 17.4% lower than the U.S. average, which may make the area more affordable for seniors.
    • In recent years, Rhode Island has become more tax-friendly for retirees, which might help Woonsocket seniors with restrictive budgets. Many seniors don’t need to pay tax on their Social Security benefits. For many seniors, the first $15,000 of retirement income, such as IRAs and 401(k)s, is tax-exempt.
    • In Rhode Island, 92% of communities have a lower crime rate than Woonsocket, so seniors may consider taking security precautions. Woonsocket residents have a one in 44 chance of becoming a victim of a property crime, but for violent crime, the chance is only one in 189.
