Why look for assisted living in Rhode Island?
Rhode Island has a population of 1+ million, though that number has basically flat-lined over the last half-century. It is partly due to Rhode Island having nowhere to expand as the smallest state in America based on land size has frankly ran out of room to grow. Rhode Island is your quintessential New England state with splendid views of the Atlantic Ocean. It is very small, as one can travel from each border in less than a day’s travel by car.
Seniors prefer Rhode Island for its remoteness in the thick of a very crowded and busy northeastern United States, where millions live in major cities like New York City, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and Baltimore.
If you or a family member would prefer to be close to family in these metropolitan areas yet not actually live in them, then Rhode Island is a terrific alternative. Housing costs for assisted living are pricier here yet the outstanding service and lavish establishments are simply hard to beat.

Types of Assisted Living Available in Rhode Island
Rhode Island is small, and as previously noted there are no significant plans to witness the state grow substantially more as its gridlocked by its geographic boundaries. Still, the state provides a fair selection of types of assisted living given its tiny size, including smaller assisted living homes and larger senior living communities with assisted living units.
