What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wellman

The small village of Wellman, located in Eastern Iowa along the I-80, was named after Joseph Wellman because it was founded in 1879 on land he owned. The senior population of 302 might seem small, but that number is 21.4% of the town’s 1,408 total population. There are two assisted living facilities located within Wellman to support seniors who may require assisted living services.

Assisted living facilities are called Assisted Living Programs and Residential Care Facilities in Wellman and throughout Iowa. The Health Facilities Division of the Department of Inspections and Appeals governs both types.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wellman

  • Seniors looking for a safe place to retire may appreciate Wellman’s low crime rates. The violent crime rate in the village is 13.9, and the property crime rate is 16.2, both almost half of the U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.
  • Seniors with respiratory or cardiovascular ailments who want to retire somewhere with good air quality might enjoy living in Wellman. The village’s air quality is ranked 83 on a scale where 100 represents the best air quality. Wellman's score is almost 30 points higher than the national average of 58.
  • The Wellman area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Iowa City.
  • The cost of living in Wellman is 94.6, slightly lower than the national average of 100. Seniors can also expect to pay less for groceries and transportation, although healthcare expenses are higher than average at 125.3. Wellman seniors might want to ensure that they allocate extra money toward healthcare when preparing their monthly budgets.
  • Social Security benefits are not taxed in Iowa, which might leave Wellman seniors with more money to contribute toward their assisted living budgets.
  • Wellman has warm summers with highs reaching 84 degrees and harsh winters where temperatures dive as low as 10 degrees. Precipitation in the village is almost on par with the rest of the nation, with 37 inches of rain and 27 inches of snow annually compared to the national averages of 39 and 26 inches, respectively. Seniors who like watching the seasons change might enjoy living in Wellman.
