Milford lies 20 miles south of Delaware’s state capital of Dover and is within 10 miles of the beautiful coast. In 2019, Kipling Magazine named Milford as one of the top 13 small towns in the nation for retirement.

Home to almost 11,200 people, approximately 23.3% of the local population is seniors aged 65 and older. Bayhealth Hospital’s Sussex Campus is within the city limits, with Beebe Healthcare and Bayhealth Hospital’s Kent Campus also easy to access. Retirees looking for fun and relaxation will find parks, golf courses, nature centers, art galleries, museums and theaters close at hand, while local amenities include restaurants, shops, pharmacies and places of worship. The overall cost of living in Milford is below the state norm, and the lack of sales tax can help seniors stretch their retirement funds further.

The average cost of assisted living in Milford is $6,073 per month, although actual costs vary depending on services and amenities. Although slightly costlier than the state average of $5,995, the rate in Milford is lower than in neighboring New Jersey, where seniors typically pay around $6,495 each month.
