Assisted Living in Plymouth, Massachusetts

Plymouth, MA, is perhaps one of the best-known cities in the country. This landing site of the Mayflower is rich in history and a popular tourist destination, not only for exploring the Colonial settlement, but also for the natural beauty of the area, especially in the fall, where visitors and residents alike pick apples, pumpkins and admire the fall foliage. Although the winters here are cold and snowy, the summers are sunny and warm. Beyond its place in American lore, Plymouth has many other things to offer elderly residents. Plymouth is about a 40-minute drive from Boston, which has an international airport for ease of visitation and world-class healthcare and other big city amenities. The crime rates in Plymouth are well below the national average, which may make elderly residents, about one in five of the town’s 62,000 residents, feel safer. In addition, SSI and public pensions are exempt from state income tax in Massachusetts, which seniors on a budget may appreciate. 

Many of the senior residents in Plymouth may be considering moving to one of the area’s dozens of assisted living communities. Monthly assisted living fees here average $5,550 per month.

Assisted Living Financial Assistance

Massachusetts Medicaid, called MassHealth, offers one assisted living waiver for the elderly, which can be used to pay for assisted living costs or in-home health care and homemaker services, for individuals who would prefer one of these accommodations instead of nursing home care. The program is called the Group Adult Foster Care (GAFC) and the Supplemental Security Income (SSI-G) Assisted Living Benefit, and it’s open to seniors aged 60 and older who are financially eligible for Medicaid. 

For more information about these programs and eligibility requirements, visit our Assisted Living in Massachusetts page.
