Despite being one of Hartford County's smaller towns, Plainville, Connecticut, is culturally diverse and features a lively downtown business sector. A buzzing lifestyle in a small town package attracts people of all ages, so it's no wonder more than a fifth of the town's population is aged 62 years or older.
Seniors who enjoy more challenging weather will find Plainville enticing place to settle. While more comfortable than most places in Connecticut, it has an above average amount of inclement weather. It gets more rain and snow and has fewer sunny days than the national average. However, with plenty of fine dining establishments, a charming brewery and an abundance of art and cultural history, senior retirees should have no problem finding satisfying indoor or outdoor experiences.
The average cost of assisted living in Plainsville is $4,650 per month, but this varies depending on services offered. This is higher than the national average of $4,051 per month but slightly lower than the Connecticut state average of $4,880.
Note: Information for Plainsville was not available, so data from its host county, Hartford, was used.
