Saginaw, Michigan, is a former industrial city that’s now slowly revitalizing. The region’s continental climate offers hot summers bracketed by mild spring and fall weather. In terms of sights and recreational activities, Saginaw offers many examples of late 19th century historical architecture and the Saginaw Art Museum, which is itself an example of the same architectural style. The city also has the distinction of being home to one of the most authentic Japanese tea gardens in the entire Midwest. The Saginaw Farmers’ Market is also a great place to visit for fresh groceries. Saginaw’s estimated 2019 population is 48,115, of whom 13% are 65 or older.

Despite its moderate size, Saginaw offers robust health care through three major hospitals inside the city’s compact geography. The larger two are Covenant Healthcare and Aleda E. Lutz VA Medical Center. Home care and home health aide services cost an average of $4,576 and $5,148, respectively, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2020. This is slightly above the national averages of $4,481 and $4,576 for the same types of care.

Saginaw Home Care Resources 

Home care services are only one of the pieces needed for seniors to gracefully age in place. There are many services and programs that are low-cost or free, that enable seniors to enjoy an independent lifestyle in the comfort of their own home, such as help with home modifications, meal delivery services, and more.
