    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bay City

    Bay City, Michigan, which is nestled near the base of Saginaw Bay on Lake Huron, is home to 34,110 people. Though most of its population is middle-aged, the area has 23 assisted living facilities — commonly referred to in Michigan as adult foster care facilities. Six are located in the city proper and 17 in nearby communities. Facilities are all governed by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) to ensure regulations for proper standards of care are followed.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bay City

    • The cost of living in Bay City is 23.5 percent lower than the national average and 11 percent below Michigan's mean. Much this number is due to low housing costs, but savings are to be found in every category. This makes it easier for seniors to find affordable prices for groceries and health care services.

    • According to EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment, the air quality in Bay City is seven points worse than the national norm. For seniors with respiratory or allergy problems, this could be an issue.

    • With a violent crime rate of 42.5 and a property crime rate of 41.1, crime in Bay city exceeds the norm for both the nation and the state. For seniors in properly monitored ALFs, this might not be a major concern but could make going out chancy for active seniors.

    • The climate in Bay City can be brutal. Winter temperatures can hover in the low teens for weeks and the city receives an average of 41 inches of snow per year. This could make it difficult for seniors to enjoy outdoor activities on a regular basis.

    • Bay City has many cultural and art activities to offer people of all ages. Studio 23 holds year-round art exhibits, classes and lectures which are often free. There is also a city arts council and community theater that welcome all to participate.

    • The Bay City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including McClaren Bay Region, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
