    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.

    • 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.
