Keene is a city in southwest New Hampshire with a population of just above 23,000. Seniors make up 18.1% of residents in the city, which is high compared to the national average but a bit lower than the median for the state. Seniors can enjoy parks, athletic complexes, conservation areas, museums, art galleries, and festivals in the area.

One appealing aspect of Keene for seniors is the cost of living, which is 13.7% lower than the national average and 19.5% lower than the state average. This is partly due to the area’s low health care costs. Affordable living costs are complemented by no state taxes on social security and retirement accounts, putting more money in the pockets of seniors. Keene has one hospital located within the city limits, Cheshire Medical Center.

According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey for 2021, the median price for assisted living facilities in Keene is $8,061 per month. New Hampshire’s average cost is about $2,000 less, and the national median rate is about $3,500 less. The neighboring state of Vermont’s monthly assisted living cost is $5,250, $2,811 less than Keene’s.

Note: Data for Keene was unavailable, so data for the nearest city, Manchester, was used instead.
