    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Auburn

    Auburn is located in Williams Township, which was established in 1858, making it the second oldest township in Bay County. Today, approximately 2,100 people live here, and 17.6% of them are aged 65 or older. These seniors may take part in coordinated activities offered at the Auburn Community Center and enjoy local attractions, like the Marshall M. Fredericks Sculpture  Museum in nearby Saginaw. 

    For seniors who need assistance with the tasks of daily living, such as personal grooming and hygiene, there are three assisted living facilities in Auburn, and 10 more in nearby Midland, Freeland and surrounding areas.  In Michigan, including Auburn, the Department of Human Services licenses and regulates these facilities as homes for the aged.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Auburn

    • At 87.3, the cost of living in Auburn is much lower than the national baseline of 100 and the state cost of living at 96.7. Seniors and their families may pay a little less for utilities, housing and groceries but more for transportation in this rural community.
    • According to measurements taken by the EPA, Auburn scored an 80 in air quality, 22 points higher than the U.S. average, but it received a 30 in water quality — about half the national average. This may be a concern for seniors and their families moving here from areas with cleaner water ratings.
    • Summers are moderate with July highs around 82 degrees. However, January lows dip to 15 degrees on average, and locals can expect 41 inches of snow per year. Auburn receives 32 inches of rain, compared to the U.S. average of 28 inches. Seniors with conditions aggravated by cold weather may be uncomfortable here in the winter.
    • Seniors may be happy to learn that Auburn's property crime and violent crime are just a fraction of the state and national figures, at 18.2 and 5.7, respectively. The corresponding national averages for property and violent crime are 55.4 and 22.7, respectively.
    • Auburn has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Bay City.
    • Michigan is relatively tax-friendly to seniors in Auburn and the rest of the state. There's no tax on Social Security retirement benefits, and there's a large deduction on other types of retirement income.
