What to Consider About Assisted Living in Grand Rapids

Grand Rapids, Michigan, is located along Lake Michigan. It's home to 24 assisted living facilities, with 31 more facilities in neighboring communities such as Wyoming, Grandville, Kentwood, Byron Center, Rockford and Allendale.

Many assisted living facilities in Michigan aren’t required to be licensed by the state; however, the  Department of Human Services, Bureau of Child and Adult Licensing monitors these facilities. The only exceptions to the non-licensure are adult foster care homes and homes for the aged. The difference between these two is that adult foster care homes typically house fewer adults than homes for the aged.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Grand Rapids

  • Mild summers and snowy winters might appeal to some seniors. Grand Rapids’ hottest month is July, which has an average high temperature of 82 degrees. January is the coldest month with lows around 16 degrees. The city gets an average of 36 inches of rain and 68 inches of snow annually.

  • Living in Grand Rapids is a bit less expensive than the rest of the country. The cost of living index here is 87.2, which is below the national average of 100.
  • The crime rate is higher in Grand Rapids than the national average. Property crime comes in at 49.2, which is above the national average of 38.1. The violent crime rate is 66.2, which is more than double than the national average of 31.1, making security a concern for seniors settling here.

  • Seniors can enjoy reduced fare on The Rapid, a public transit option that takes you around Grand Rapids and services other cities, including Kalamazoo. The Downtown Area Shuttle provides limited routes in the north and west areas of downtown without a fee.
  • Grand Rapids is home to world-class medical facilities, including several Spectrum Health Hospital campuses like Butterworth and Blodgett, Mercy Health Saint Mary’s Campus, and Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illnesses.

Learn more about these programs, plus who’s eligible, on our Assisted Living in Michigan page.
