What to Consider About Assisted Living in Newton

Newton, IA, is the home of the original Maytag Washing Machine Company, and it remains one of Iowa's main manufacturing centers today, despite its small size as a city. Newton has only six assisted living communities that are licensed by the state. This licensure comes through the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, which inspects and closely monitors conditions in all of the state's residential care facilities. Seniors who live in these properties typically pay a monthly rate, in exchange for which they get room and board and 24-hour emergency response from well-trained staff. Amenities vary by location, but many communities offer help with transportation offsite, as well as assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), including help dressing, bathing and taking some medication. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Newton

  • Newton's weather is typical for this part of Iowa. Dry, cold winters, when the December lows can drop to 10 degrees Fahrenheit, sometimes aggravate asthma or other conditions seniors may be living with. Summers in Newton are mild, with July highs rarely rising higher than 85 degrees. Newton gets an average of 35.5 inches of rain a year.

  • Newton's cost of living is generally lower than most places in America. Seniors who shop for their own groceries pay about 2 percent less here than the national average, while the cost of health care can be 98 percent of the national rates as well.

  • Seniors who work in Iowa may be subject to an income tax rate that runs from 0.36 percent to 8.98 percent, depending on total income. SSI and some other kinds of retirement income may be exempt from state taxes, though aging citizens who shop for themselves pay between 7 and 8 percent in sales taxes.

  • Crime in Newton is low by national standards. Seniors who enjoy evening strolls are generally safe from robbery and assault, which are half and one-third the national median in Newton, respectively.

  • Seniors without a car of their own can get around Newton on Heart of Iowa Regional Transit Authority (HIRTA), which provides bus service throughout the area. Adults over 60 qualify for discount travel, though a valid transit ID must be presented at the time of boarding.

  • The Newton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Skiff Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
