What to Consider About Assisted Living in Escanaba

Escanaba, nestled in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, gets its name from a Native American word meaning flat rock. It was settled back in 1830, and today, it has nearly 12,200 residents. The small city has a relatively large senior population with 22.9% of residents being 65 or older.

Within Escanaba city limits, there are two assisted living facilities. Four more facilities are conveniently located in nearby Gladstone. The Adult Foster Care and Homes for the Aged Licensing Division licenses and regulates these assisted living facilities, as well as those in the rest of the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Escanaba

  • The Escanaba area is home to world-class medical facilities, including OSF St. Francis Hospital and Medical Group, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors in Escanaba have limited access to public transit. The Delta Area Transit Authority operates an hourly fixed-route bus service between 9 a.m. and 3:45 p.m; seniors pay half-price fares. To help seniors get around the city, some assisted living facilities may offer scheduled transportation.
  • For taxpayers born before 1946, Michigan’s tax policies are favorable. These taxpayers don’t need to pay tax on their government or military pensions. Single filers can exclude up to $51,570 of their private pension income. With these tax savings, seniors may find that they can more easily afford assisted living fees in Escanaba.
  • Compared to the national average, Escanaba’s cost of living is 17% lower. The city’s housing costs are about half the national average. Groceries and transportation are also more affordable than the national norm. Cost-conscious seniors may appreciate the city’s low prices.
  • Each year, an average of 52 inches of snow falls on Escanaba. This is nearly double the national average of 28 inches, which may please seniors who participate in winter sports. Summers in this city are mild, with highs in the mid-70s. 
  • Despite its small size, Escanaba offers a wide variety of attractions that may appeal to seniors. Each year, the Upper Peninsula State Fair comes to Escanaba. At The Bonifas Arts Center, seniors can tour the galleries, participate in workshops or view theatrical productions. To learn more about local history, seniors can visit the Delta County Historical Museum
