    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Detroit

    Detroit is located in southeast Michigan and is best known for both Motown and motor vehicles, perfect for car enthusiasts or the music lovers. Almost 12 percent of Detroit's 713,777 population are seniors aged 65 or older. To serve those seniors, Detroit is home to 17 assisted living facilities with another three located in neighboring areas.

    In Detroit and throughout Michigan, assisted living facilities are known as Adult Foster Care Facilities (AFC) or Homes for the Aged (HFA), both of which are licensed by The Department of Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Detroit

    • Michigan does not tax social security income and only partially taxes retirement savings account withdrawals and pensions. Detroit seniors may find that the state's tax laws result in more money to allocate toward their healthcare expenses. 
    • Three of Detroit's suburbs (Auburn Hills, Highland Park and Southfield) are members of AARP's Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP. 
    • Seniors living in Detroit have access to public transportation through the Detroit Department of Transportation (DDOT). The city's line of SMART buses provide service to the suburbs and MetroLift helps arrange curb-to-curb service for Detroit's elderly and disabled.
    • Detroit has a comfortable climate with summer highs of 83 degrees and winter lows of 19. However, the city only gets 183 sunny days per year, slightly less than the national average of 205. Seniors who enjoy ample sunshine might prefer a sunnier city.
    • Detroit's cost of living is 94.4, slightly lower than the national average of 100. Healthcare expenses also rank lower at 85, indicating that the city may be affordable for seniors. 
    • Detroit has a violent crime rate of 94.3 and a property crime rate of 66.7, both considerably higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. Seniors can rest assured that the security precautions taken by care facilities make them among the safest places to live.
