What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sioux City

Sioux City is the "Sue" in Sue Bee Honey, which has been harvesting bee juice in the town since 1921. While the factory doesn't offer tours, seniors who live in any of the 11 local assisted living communities are surrounded by the vast clover fields where the honey is harvested. Sioux City's assisted living facilities are tightly regulated by the Iowa Department of Inspections and Appeals, which conducts health and safety checks. Residents in assisted living in Sioux City are ensured room and board and 24-hour emergency response from full-time staff. Seniors also have help with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing and sometimes transportation outside the community.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sioux City

  • Sioux City's weather is not overly hot. Summer highs rarely get close to 90 degrees Fahrenheit, while winter lows can touch 10 degrees in December. Snow falls here around that time, which creates a regular white Christmas seniors can share with grandkids. In the warmer months, almost 28 inches of rain can kickstart pollen production, which may be an issue for seniors with allergies and asthma.

  • The cost of living in Sioux City is slightly less than the national average. Seniors on a fixed income can appreciate the 2-percent-lower cost of health care here, as well as the 5-percent cut to the cost of groceries.

  • Iowa's tax system starts with a progressive income tax of between 0.36 and 8.98 percent on most income. This doesn't apply to SSI or most retirement income, which is something to discuss with a financial adviser. State sales tax adds 7 or 8 percent to most items.

  • Crime in Sioux City is somewhat higher than is common in America, though violent crime, especially crime against seniors, remains rare. 

  • Seniors who need a lift in Sioux City can catch a ride on the Sioux City Transit System, the area's mass transit authority. Riders over age 60 get discount fares on the network's many bus routes, though a valid ID is required to avoid full price. Seniors dealing with disabilities can call for dial-a-ride service, which can be a convenient way to make it to medical office visits.

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