    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Clarkston

    Clarkston is a small village in Oakland County, Michigan and is located fully within the limits of Independence Township. Clarkston is known for its small-town charm as well as annual events such as the Clarkston Area Farmer's Market, which runs on weekends in the summer months. Oakland County, Michigan is home to a little more than 1.25 million residents, 16.7 percent of whom are over the age of 65. 

    In the state of Michigan, facilities providing assisted living care to seniors are known as "homes for the aged." There are six homes for the aged located in Clarkston and an additional 50 homes for the aged located in nearby towns such as Waterford and White Lake.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Clarkston

    • The air quality in Oakland County has been given a passing grade by the American Lung Association, which means that seniors with lung-related conditions can live in the area without worrying about the air quality worsening their health.
    • The Clarkston area is home to world-class medical facilities, including McLaren Clarkston: Emergency Room, in case of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • There are plenty of arts and culture for seniors living in Clarkston to enjoy. Some homes for the aged may offer supervised day trips that give residents the opportunity to take in some of the area's top attractions, such as Art in the Village and the Holiday Lights Festival.
    • There are no public transportation options in Clarkston, meaning that seniors living in the area will likely have to depend on friends or family members to help them get around and travel throughout the area. 
    • The state of Michigan doesn't tax social security income. Seniors can use these savings to help them pay for the cost of assisted living.
    • Even though the overall cost of living in Clarkston is 28 percent higher than the national average, seniors can save on other basic expenses such as healthcare which comes in at 17 percent below the U.S. average.
