What to Consider About Assisted Living in Rutland

Vermont's Department of Disabilities, Aging and Independent Living, Division of Licensing and Protection licenses assisted living facilities in Rutland and in the rest of the state. Through this department, seniors can find information on licensing requirements related to care planning, nutrition and medication services and staffing. The department also fields and follows up on complaints related to substandard care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rutland

 

  • Rutland has exceptional air quality and may be a suitable option for seniors sensitive to environmental pollutants. The American Lung Association gives Rutland County, where Rutland is located, an A for ozone pollution, a B for 24-hour particle pollution and a passing rating for annual particle pollution levels.
  • Vermont is one of the few states in which seniors pay state income taxes on all types of retirement income, though income-qualifying seniors can claim a full or partial exemption to reduce what they pay on their Social Security benefits. Property taxes are a significant expense in this state, but transitioning to assisted living can help older adults avoid this expense.
  • Seniors in Rutland have access to several low-cost and volunteer-based transportation services, including bus service through the Marble Valley Regional Transit District, which provides discounted rates to seniors, One 2 One and Bridges and Beyond. These services can supplement or be a cost-effective alternative to paid transportation services available through assisted living facilities.   
  • Rutland Regional Medical Center is located in Rutland proper, offering access to a range of specialties such as critical care, cardiac services and orthopedic services, and the city has about 219 doctors per capita compared to 210 nationally. In addition to this, many assisted living facilities in the city have on-staff nurses and on-call physicians to promote prompt medical care for residents.
  • Rutland residents enjoy pleasant summers with high temperatures between 75 and 80 degrees, and few days have noticeable humidity. Winters can be frigid with nighttime lows in the single digits, and about 78 inches of snow falls annually. Assisted living facilities typically provide escorts for errands and medical appointments, helping those with mobility challenges navigate snowy conditions.
  • On a 100-point index based on national norms, Rutland’s overall cost of living comes in at 88.5 versus the Vermont score of 100.8, indicating it’s much more affordable than the average city in Vermont or across the country. This may help seniors maintain a comfortable standard of living even on a fixed income.
