    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bennington

    With a population of just over 15,000, Bennington represents the largest town center in southern Vermont. Close to 20 percent of Bennington's population is over 65, and there are three assisted living facilities within the town to help accommodate resident needs. There are an additional 14 facilities in neighboring communities, although these include some out-of-state facilities where local state licensing regulations would apply. Within Vermont, however, the state's Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living officially oversees the licensing and regulation of communities.

    Chartered in 1749, the town of Bennington has historical significance, and some local facilities may wish to plan excursions to Park-McCullough House, Old First Church, or the Bennington Battle Monument, which commemorates the 1777 Battle of Bennington.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bennington

    • While Bennington summers are pleasant, with July highs reaching approximately 80 degrees, winter temperatures are more extreme, with the January low averaging 12 degrees. This can create impediments for mobility-restricted seniors to get outside during the colder months.

    • Bennington's cost of living is pegged at more than 10 percent below the U.S. national average, although housing costs are the main factor in the overall number. Seniors will see slightly above-average prices for groceries, although health-care costs do fall slightly below the national average.

    • The Green Mountain Express provides transportation services in and around Bennington county. Transit schedules and fares are posted on the company website.

    • Local communities may wish to organize supervised excursions to Bennington's Oldcastle Theatre. The theatre company has been operating in Bennington since 1972. The Southern Vermont Arts Center in nearby Manchester is another cultural point of interest. A permanent collection and scheduled exhibits are available to explore at the Center's 100-acre campus.

    • The Bennington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southwestern Vermont Health Care, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Bennington has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Southwestern Vermont Council on Aging, an organization that promotes opportunities for elders and caregivers in the region to maintain maximum independence and quality of life, as well as one senior center.
