    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grand Ledge

    • In Grand Ledge, seniors do not pay state income tax on the Social Security benefits. While all other types of retirement income are taxed at the state level, Michigan allows a large deduction to minimize the expense. 
    • Qualifying seniors may receive transportation services through the Tri-County Office on Aging, which provides seniors with transportation to medical appointments.

    • The overall crime rate in Grand Ledge is notably below the national average, which may bring peace of mind to seniors who reside in assisted living here. On a 100-point scale, the violent crime rate is 10.2, compared to the national average of 22.7; and the property crime rate is 20.9, versus the national average of 35.4.
