    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bridgeport West

    • The city of Bridgeport has crime rates that total higher than 88 percent of other cities in the state. However, the city's crime rate is still 1 percent lower than the national average, making it safer than 45 percent of the cities in the United States. This might allow seniors to rest easier at night.

    • Locals who have respiratory or allergy problems find it easier to breathe in Bridgeport which, when compared to the national averages, has a better pollution index by 93 percent and air quality index by 31 percent.

    • Seniors living on Social Security income with a supplement from a pension or retirement account may qualify for a tax deductible. However, those with significant retirement income may face higher income taxes living in the state.
