    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Munster

    Munster, which is located in Lake County, Indiana, is a peaceful town on the south shore of Lake Michigan. It is situated just 26 miles outside Chicago, providing seniors easy access to big-city amenities, including state-of-the-art medical facilities, entertainment venues and museums.

    To support the senior community, which accounts for 19 percent of the population, the town offers one assisted living facility. Seniors who are willing to venture out from the city proper will find an additional 36 facilities nearby. These facilities, which provide at least one health-related service and two or more scheduled supportive services to five or more individuals, are licensed and monitored by the state's Family and Social Services Agency Division of Aging.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Munster

    • While the cost of living in Munster is higher than the national average, this is mainly due to the high cost of housing. This city is an affordable place for seniors, with its grocery costs coming in about 6 percent below the national average and health care costs coming in 14 percent below the national average.
    • Munster seniors pay income tax on income they draw from retirement accounts and pensions, but their Social Security benefits are not taxed.
    • Munster is a relatively safe city, which may provide peace of mind for seniors. Its overall crime rate comes in 30 percent below the state average and 26 percent below the national average. The rate of violent offenses is nearly 90 percent below both the state and U.S. average, and the property crime rate is 20 percent below the state average and 16 percent below the national average.
    • Munster is home to numerous arts and culture options for seniors to enjoy. The local senior center may provide supervised trips to the Northwest Indiana Symphony Orchestra or South Shore Arts.
    • The Munster area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Franciscan Health Munster and Community Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Munster has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Keen Ager Program, an organization that offers discounts for trips, activities, parties and programs, and access to daily social events for older adults, and at least one senior center is located in the area.
