What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burlington

You can check out gardening tools at the Fletcher Free Library in Burlington, in addition to books, which has been a quaint local tradition since the library opened in 1871. Modern Burlington has a lot of local quirks like that, despite being Vermont's biggest city and home to 24 assisted living communities, which between them house thousands of seniors. All these communities are regulated by the Vermont Division of Licensing and Protection for health and safety, as well as for staff training and 24-hour coverage. Residents in Burlington's residential care homes get room and board for their monthly fee, as well as emergency response, group activities and help managing the activities of daily living (ADLs) that have become difficult for them.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Burlington

  • Cold winters in Burlington can work against seniors with COPD, asthma or other respiratory issues, though Vermont's very mild summers help to make up for the snowy winters. December lows in Burlington drop to 10 degrees Fahrenheit sometimes, while summer highs get to 81 degrees in July. Summer brings 37 inches of rain, and winter drops 81 inches of snow here a year.

  • Burlington can be pricey for seniors on a fixed income. Groceries, for instance, cost an average of 12 percent more in Burlington than the average cost elsewhere in the United States, while the cost of health care can be 4 percent more than the national average.

  • Taxes in Vermont run from 3.55 to 8.95 percent on most income, though SSI and the retirement income many seniors depend on tends to be exempt. Sales taxes here range from 6 to 7 percent on most purchases, though an extra 30 cents a gallon goes on top of gasoline purchases in the state.

  • Burlington's crime rates are very close to the average rates observed nationwide. Violent crime and crimes that especially affect seniors are less common in Burlington than in the other sizable cities of the Northeast, however.

  • Burlington residents who need a lift can catch one of the buses run by Green Mountain Transit, which operates throughout the area. This service offers discount fares for seniors with valid ID, and adults with disabilities can schedule dial-a-ride trips in advance.

  • The Burlington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the University of Vermont Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
