Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Gladstone
- Seniors in Gladstone and the rest of Michigan receive senior-friendly tax exemptions. Michigan doesn't collect taxes on Social Security income, and withdrawals from IRAs, 401(k)s and pensions are only partially taxed.
- Gladstone has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Escanaba.
- Gladstone has a violent crime rate of 10.2, about half the U.S. average of 22.7, and its property crime rate is 26.2, nine points lower than the national median. This may help seniors feel more confident and safe while running errands or going to appointments in town.
- With a July high of 77 degrees, Gladstone has moderate summers that may appeal to seniors who love the outdoors. However, January lows hit 9 degrees, and the town receives 52 inches of snow a year, so seniors should ask prospective assisted living facilities what activities are available to residents in colder months.
- The EPA rates the air quality in Gladstone at 86, which is much higher than the national average of 58. This may be great news for seniors with respiratory ailments looking for cleaner air. At 67, the town's water quality is higher than the national average of 55.
- The cost of living in Gladstone is 83.3, nearly 17% lower than the national and 13% lower than the state averages. This is driven by housing costs, which are 30% lower than Michigan's average and less than half the national median. Families of seniors moving to the area to be near relatives in assisted living may also have lower transportation and grocery costs.
