Historical sites, abundant nature, high income, nice local stores, excellent schools, and extremely low crime rates. That is Suffield CT, a quintessential New England town, and one of the best places to retire in Connecticut.
Suffield admirably keeps the balance between its colonial roots and today’s modern lifestyle, making it a very nice place to live. It is a quiet town, with a suburban east side and a “country-like” west side. The town, which started as a farming community in 1670, is very proud of its historical heritage, preserving a beautiful line up of colonial houses on the main street and a lovely Town Green. The center counts with charming small shops and an excellent library.
On the countryside, on West Suffield Mountain, the Sunrise Park offers a lake, hiking trails, picnic and recreation areas to town residents.
According to the Census Bureau, Suffield counted 12,413 inhabitants in 2010, with a median household income of 92,546.
Suffield counts with a strategic location, between Hartford CT and Springfield MA, and next to Bradley International Airport, a magnet for new business. This position grants steady economic growth, with a 4.70% unemployment rate and job growth of 1.62%. In the next ten years, the job growth is predicted to be 38.55%. Finally, Suffield registers extremely low crime rates.
The quick access to Interstate 91 road makes it easy to commute up and down the Connecticut River valley and offers quick access to Vermont, New Hampshire, Boston, New Haven and New York.
With so much to offer, this is considered one of the best places to retire in Connecticut, state that has the third-highest life expectancy in the country. With a little help at home, it will be possible for seniors to enjoy everything Suffield has to offer, aging at home, healthy, and safe.
One of the reasons Suffield is considered one of the best places to retire is the presence of excellent services available for its senior citizens. The Suffield House provides excellent nursing home services, the city’s Emergency Aid Association assists and protects the elderly against abuse and neglect, and the Senior Center enables them to socialize and engage in health and wellness activities. Home Helpers came to add up, as another option to help Suffield citizens to age safely, healthy and independently at home.
The connection between the Suffield Community and Home Helpers Home Care dates from way before the company started offering services in the town. Home Helpers Home Care owner Peter DiMaria has a close relationship with Suffield, as he is an alumnus of the Suffield Academy. "I love this town and the fact that it is part of my history," he says.
