    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Battle Creek

    Named for its location near Battle Creek River, the city touts its annual cereal festival, hot air balloon festival, amateur baseball tournaments, and top ranking Binder Zoo. Seniors can experience these activities as well as nature preserves and walking trails.

    Michigan assisted living communities are often popularly known as homes for the aged, though official documents often use the term "adult foster care facility." Levels of care and services offered vary by the property, but residents of the 38 facilities in Battle Creek generally get room and board, transportation and 24-hour staff assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs). 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Battle Creek

    • Weather in Battle Creek is generally mild in summer and cold in winter, which can be tough on seniors who don't like the cold. Daily highs here average 58 degrees Fahrenheit, while lows average 37 degrees. Battle Creek gets around 35 inches of rain a year off the lake.

    • Air quality in Calhoun County, MI, is generally good. The American Lung Association still rates Battle Creek, and the surrounding area, a little high in ozone pollution, but fine particles in the air are generally well within what's considered acceptable limits.

    • Cost of living in the Battle Creek-Kalamazoo area is around 20 percent lower than the national average. Housing is about 40 percent cheaper here, while groceries are 20 and health care 10 percent cheaper than is common elsewhere.

    • Battle Creek residents pay sales tax of 6 percent on most of their goods. This tax comes entirely from the state of Michigan; Battle Creek does not impose any additional taxes on commerce, though local homeowners do pay property taxes.

    • Battle Creek has high crime rates in most categories. Residents here have a 1-in-94 chance of being the victim of a violent crime, while property crimes, such as theft, are high even by the already-high standards of Michigan, so seniors on day trips with family are advised to use cautious in town.

    • Battle Creek Transit operates bus routes around the city that reach out somewhat into the surrounding territory. Connections are available to the public transit systems of nearby communities, such as Kalamazoo, and seniors can ride at a discount.
