    What to Consider About Assisted Living in East Lansing

    East Lansing is the home of Michigan State University and boasts more than 50 arts and cultural activities each year, no city income tax, and 4 mile trail for walking, running, biking, and observing nature.

    East Lansing also features four assisted living communities. Nearby areas, such as Haslett, Holt and Lansing, offer a total of 33 more facilities from which seniors can choose. The state of Michigan refers to assisted living facilities as homes for the aged. These personal care communities assist people age 60 and older with daily tasks and medication administration. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in East Lansing

    • East Lansing is a member of the AARP 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. 
    • The climate in East Lansing scores a 48 out of 100 on the comfort index, partly due to cold, snowy winters. In January, the average low temperature is 13 degrees Fahrenheit. Residents see about 45 inches of snowfall per year, which could be an issue for seniors looking for warmer climates.

    • The cost of living in East Lansing is higher than the average cost for Michigan, but it's lower than the national average. Groceries and utilities cost less than the state average, letting seniors save some money.
    • Seniors in Michigan get a tax break, as they don't have to pay state income tax on money received from state or federal pensions or public retirement systems.

    • East Lansing's violent crime rate is about 20 out of 100 on the crime index, with 100 being the worst. This rate is lower than Michigan's average of 33 and the U.S. average of 31, making it a relatively safe place to live.
    • East Lansing has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Prime Time Seniors' Program, which offers classes and programs for fitness, games, education and entertainment; Senior Dining Sites, a tri-county program offering meals and recreational programs; and Senior Project Fresh, which provides seniors with coupons for fresh produce from farmer's markets.
