Assisted Living in Dedham, Massachusetts

Dedham, Massachusetts is a suburb of Boston, located in the southern part of the metro area. Residents here have fast access to all the amenities that the largest city in the state offers while being far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the city’s center. As a port city, Boston is known for fresh seafood, and the metro area has plenty of different shopping and dining destinations. Health care is exceptional, and seniors have plenty of options, including Massachusetts Respiratory Hospital

Crime rates here, especially property crimes, are significantly lower than the national average, which may be a relief for many seniors. Dedham weather is cold and snowy in the winter, but summers are pleasant, and there’s plenty of rainfall. People with health conditions aggravated by hot weather may be comfortable here. Many of Dedham’s senior citizens may seek accommodations in one of the area’s many assisted living communities, which average $6,100 per month. 

Note: Data for Dedham was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Boston, was used instead.
