What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grinnell

Grinnell, Iowa, was founded in 1854 and is home to several historic buildings, which residents and visitors can see on a self-guided walking tour. The city has a little over 9,000 residents and a senior community that makes up almost 19 percent of the population.  

In Grinnell, as in all of Iowa, assisted living facilities are officially called assisted living programs or residential care facilities, depending on the age of the population they serve and the level of care they provide. These facilities are licensed through the Department of Inspections and Appeals, Health Facilities Division. Grinnell has two assisted living facilities for local seniors to choose from. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grinnell

  • Grinnell seniors do not pay state income tax on their Social Security benefits, and other types of retirement income are tax-deductible. This may allow seniors to put more money toward the cost of assisted living services.
  • The cost of living in Grinnell is about 3% lower than the statewide median and 13 percent lower than the nationwide median. Healthcare expenses, including hospital stays and doctor's office visits, cost about 20% more than healthcare expenses in the nation as a whole, which may be a consideration for seniors with chronic health conditions.
  • On a 100-point scale on which higher crime is indicated by a higher score, Grinnell's property crime rate is 37, versus the national average of 35.4; and the violent crime rate is 31.6, versus the national average of 22.7. Seniors may want to ensure that they are aware of the surroundings and have personal belongings secure when they're out alone in the city.
  • Grinnell's summers are warm with July highs near 90, and winters are very cold with January lows around 10 degrees. The region gets about 30 inches of snowfall annually, which is a little more than the national average of 26 inches and may be a consideration for seniors who use mobility aids. 
  • The Grinnell area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Grinnell Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
