    What to Consider About Assisted Living in South Burlington

    South Burlington, VT, is the home of the world-famous Ben & Jerry's ice cream, which offers 30-minute factory tours that have become a rite of passage for local school kids. Seniors in the area's 25 assisted living communities can arrange group tours themselves, or they can enjoy quiet days on their properties, where staff provide 24-hour assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). Vermont's residential care homes are regulated by the state-level Vermont Division of Licensing and Protection, which conducts inspections and sets rigorous standards of care for residents.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in South Burlington

    • Weather in South Burlington is similar to the rest of the larger Burlington metro area. Winter lows here dip to 10 degrees Fahrenheit, while summer highs rarely get over 81 degrees. The region sees 37 inches of rain and 81 inches of snow here in a typical year, which can cause both pollen and cold-weather issues for seniors with asthma and COPD.

    • Cost of living is significantly higher in South Burlington than in most places around the country. Groceries here run to an average price that's 12 percent higher than the national mean, while health care can be 17 percent costlier in South Burlington than elsewhere in the country.

    • Taxes in Vermont run from 3.55 to 8.95 percent on most income. Retirement income, such as SSI and some revenue from investments, is exempt. Vermont does have a sales tax of between 6 and 7 percent on most goods, which can pinch a bit for seniors who still do their own shopping.

    • Crime has been dropping in South Burlington since at least 2004, the last year this city had crime rates equal to or greater than the national average. Since then, rates have dropped to nearly half the nation's average nationwide, which is good news for seniors who enjoy evening strolls in public areas.

    • Green Mountain Transit operates bus routes all around the Burlington-South Burlington area, with senior discounts and ADA-compliant vehicles for adults with disabilities. Dial-a-ride trips can be booked in advance, which helps many area seniors get to medical appointments.

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