Care & Living

ccording to the 2015 US Census estimates, New Hampshire ties for the second oldest population when it comes to median age, a title we share with Vermont –

the median age in both states is at 42.8, with Maine just a step behind. In fact, we’ve traded this title with our neighbors over the years. There’s a litany of stats that show the state is aging, and as a result, it’s more than ready to offer its population anything and everything older residents may need — starting with a reason to be here. The “Live Free or Die” motto describes the attitude as well as a way of life for many New Hampshire retirees. There’s a robust feeling of independence here in the Granite State, which has to do with a tangible sense of being connected to the place and to its traditions. Like all of New England, the cost of living tends to run higher than the national average. Yet compared to some other parts of the Northeast, New Hampshire can be considered a bargain. The biggest plus is that the state’s income tax of 5 percent does not apply to salaries or IRA distributions. In addition, there is no general sales tax or personal income tax. When it comes to staying active, the Granite State has an abundance of natural beauty for retirees who appreciate the outdoors, including the majestic White Mountains, with more than 1,200 hiking trails, top-notch skiing and stunning fall foliage, more than 270 lakes and ponds for boating and fishing and six public beaches along its picturesque, 13 miles of seacoast that are perfect for sailing, swimming or simply enjoying the sun and sand. New Hampshire also has an abundance of care options available to retirees, including about 30 hospitals, 28 assisted living facilities, 62 skilled nursing and rehab centers, and a plethora of medical and nonmedical home care agencies. Overall, the Granite State is a welcoming destination to spend your retirement years.
