What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marshalltown

Marshalltown is situated along the Iowa River Trail, a 34-mile scenic development that follows an old rail line through Central Iowa. The trail area is a prime location for walking, viewing wildlife, bicycling and skiing, providing outdoor recreation opportunities for people of all ages.

For seniors, which accounts for more than 17 percent of the town's population, Marshalltown also includes two assisted living facilities for long-term care, regulated by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals. The nearby city of Conrad has two more facilities to choose from.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marshalltown

  • Outdoor recreation is limited during the winters in Marshallville, except for skiing and snowmobiling, as annual snowfall totals an average of 26 inches and the temperatures drop to an average chilly low of 10 degrees Fahrenheit. Seniors may be more comfortable in the summer months when temperatures reach an average of 83 degrees. 

  • Marshalltown offers affordability to seniors. The total cost of living is 10 percent lower than average for Iowa and 20 percent lower than average for the U.S. However, health care costs in Marshalltown run 15 percent higher than the national average. 

  • Public transportation is provided by Marshalltown Municipal Transit. The buses feature mobility devices for the elderly and for people with disabilities. Door-to-door paratransit services are also available. 

  • Marshalltown is not one of the safest areas for senior residents. The odds of experiencing a crime, including both violent and property crime, are one in 28. Violent crime is significantly higher in Marshalltown than the state average, with rates at one in 168 and one in 344, respectively.

  • Marshalltown has an array of community resources for seniors, including senior-friendly community events, such as bluegrass festivals, trivia nights, special dinners and health-focused support groups, as well as the Marshalltown Senior Citizens Center, where people 55 and older can participate in social and recreational activities. 

  • The Marshalltown area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UnityPoint Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
