    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grand Ledge

    Grand Ledge, which is located in central Michigan, is most widely known for its public art displays, which residents and visitors can see throughout the city. It has about 8,000 residents and a senior community that makes up 16% of the population.   

    To support the city's aging population, there are seven assisted living facilities in the Grand Ledge area, including three in the city and four in the nearby cities of Lansing and Eagle. In this city, assisted living facilities are governed by the Department of Health and Human Services and may also be called homes for the aged. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grand Ledge

    • The Grand Ledge area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Lansing.  
    • Michigan does not impose state income tax on Social Security benefits, and while pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts are taxable, seniors may claim a large deduction to minimize the financial burden. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living in Grand Ledge.  
    • Public transportation in Grand Ledge is provided courtesy of Eaton County Transit Authority, or Eatran, which operates buses from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays. All of Eatran's buses are wheelchair-accessible, and demand-response service is available. Seniors age 60 and over are eligible for a discounted fare.  
    • With a cost of living that is 9% below the national average and 6% below the statewide average, Grand Ledge is an economical choice for seniors with limited incomes. 
    • As is typical of Michigan, Grand Ledge has warm summers with highs around 82 degrees and chilly winters with January lows around 16 degrees. Seniors may want to choose an assisted living facility that offers plenty of activities to keep them busy during the winter. 
    • Grand Ledge's crime rate is lower than state and national averages, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy being active in their community. On a scale of 1 to 100, the city's violent crime rate is nearly 13 points below the national average at 10.2, and the property crime rate is 14 points below the national average at 20.9.
