What to Consider About Assisted Living in Davison

In Davison, assisted living communities are called homes for the aged. These facilities provide room, board and supervised personal care to people aged 55 or older. The Bureau of Community and Health Systems, a division of Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, ensures that homes for the aged comply with the state’s rules and regulations. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Davison

  • Davison is a good choice for seniors who enjoy white winters, as the city gets an average of 36 inches of snow each year. Summers are mild, with an average high in July of 82 degrees, allowing older adults to enjoy the outdoors without feeling overheated. 
  • The overall cost of living index in Davison is 89.6, equal to the Michigan cost of living and almost 11 points lower than the national index of 100. Low grocery and healthcare costs, with indexes of 93 and 85 respectively, help seniors stretch their retirement budget. 
  • Seniors in Michigan don’t pay state income tax on Social Security retirement income and receive a large deduction on other types of retirement income, which means they have more money available for other expenses. There are also no local sales taxes in Michigan, so seniors in Davison only pay the state sales tax of 6%. 
  • Davison has an overall crime rate of 10 crimes per 1,000 residents, making it safer than 60% of U.S. cities. Both the property and violent crime rates are well below the Michigan average, making Davison a safe choice for seniors. 
  • Flint’s Mass Transportation Authority operates buses in Davison and adults aged 65 or older are eligible for a reduced fare. The MTA also operates a paratransit service called Your Ride that provides curb-to-curb transport to people throughout Genesee County who aren’t able to use the fixed-route service.
  • The State of the Air Report gives Genesee County a C grade for ozone pollution and an A grade for participle pollution. The area’s clean air means  Davison is a healthy choice for seniors with respiratory illnesses.
