What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grand Blanc

The Adult Foster Care and Homes for the Aged Licensing Division of Michigan’s Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs handles licensing and regulation. Although Michigan doesn’t license assisted living facilities, a Home for the Aged license might be required if the facility has 21 or more residents aged 55 or older who receive room, board and supervised personal care.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grand Blanc

  • State sales tax in Michigan is 6%, but there aren’t any city, local or county sales taxes. Groceries and prescription drugs, which are often two hefty expenses for seniors, are exempt from sales tax.
  • State income taxes are charged at a flat rate of 4.25%. While Michigan cities can charge additional taxes, Grand Blanc doesn’t do so. Seniors don’t pay income taxes on Social Security or Railroad Retirement benefits or military pensions, though other retirement benefits may be taxed. Seniors born before 1946 enjoy tax exemptions on up to $11,983 of income from private retirement plans, or $23,966 for joint filers. Those born between 1946 and 1952 can only claim an exemption on up to $20,000, or $40,000 for joint filers, and seniors born after 1952 usually don’t receive any exemptions.
  • The overall cost of living in Grand Blanc is more than 7% less than the national average. Groceries are nearly 5% lower, and health care costs are 15% lower in Grand Blanc. Housing costs are also more than 22% less than the national average, which could factor into the lower cost of assisted living residences.
  • Seniors benefit from having a local hospital, instead of having to drive to Flint. Ascension Genesys Hospital in Grand Blanc is a full-service hospital with 24/7 emergency department care and surgical specialists. It’s regionally ranked and rated high-performing in nine adult procedures and conditions, including colon cancer surgery and knee replacement, as well as treatment of heart failure, heart attack, diabetes, kidney failure, stroke, pneumonia and COPD.
  • Grand Blanc’s smaller size may contribute to its experiencing much lower crime rates compared to the national average. On a scale of one to 100, with one being the best, the national average ranks at 22.7 for violent crime, while Grand Blanc receives at 12.8. For property crime, Grand Blanc ranks at 22.2 compared to the national average of 35.4.
