    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Byron Center

    Located on the southern outskirts of the Grand Rapids metro area, Byron Center is a census-designated place (CDP) that is home to nearly 6,000 residents, 14 percent of whom are 65 or older. Residents in that age bracket who wish to move into an assisted living facility may choose among four communities in Byron Center, as well as 19 additional options in the surrounding area.

    In Byron Center, as in all of Michigan, assisted living facilities are regulated by the Michigan Department of Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Byron Center

    • Byron Center residents get to experience the change of the seasons, but the most prominent of those seasons is typically winter. The first snowfall usually occurs in mid-October, and it is not uncommon to see accumulation as late as May. Summers are pleasant and mild with highs in the low 80s. Seniors who enjoy variety in weather and do not mind getting a little chilly will likely enjoy Byron Center.
    • Kent County, where Byron Center is located, has an average cost of living. One significant benefit to many retirees is that health care, often a major expense for seniors, is 16 percent less expensive in Kent County than in a typical U.S. city. Other staple purchases, such as groceries, also cost less than average in the area.
    • The air quality in the Byron Center area is rated at 65 out of 100, which is moderately higher than the national average of 58. Seniors with asthma and other breathing difficulties may find Byron Center easier on their lungs than many destinations.
    • Because Michigan does not impose state income taxes on Social Security benefits, seniors in Byron Center have more money left over to put toward quality health care. Retirees in Michigan also receive substantial deductions to apply toward state taxes on private retirement income.
    • Byron Center is far enough on the outskirts of the Grand Rapids metro area that public transportation options are limited. There are a few private companies in the area that provide fee-based transportation services in the Grand Rapids area and across the state.
    • Byron Center has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Grand Rapids.
