What to Consider About Assisted Living in Howell

Howell, which is the county seat of Livingston County in Michigan, was established in the mid-1830s by settlers from nearby Detroit. The city is most widely known for its festival-like Sunday Farmers' Market, where seniors can browse through locally grown flowers, produce and homemade crafts every first Sunday of the month from May through October. 

Howell has a sizable senior community, which accounts for nearly 16 percent of the total population. Seniors have three assisted living facilities to choose from in the city proper and another 19 facilities nearby. In Howell, assisted living facilities that are specifically for adults over the age of 60 are called 'homes for the aged," and they are licensed and monitored by the Department of Human Services

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Howell

  • Howell has well-defined seasons and a temperate climate that is typical of southeast Michigan. Summers are warm and comfortable, with highs in the low-80s, which may appeal to seniors who enjoy being outdoors. The area experiences harsh winters, however, with lows in the mid-teens and roughly 35 inches of annual snowfall. This may make local travel a challenge for seniors. 
  • The cost of living in Howell is nearly 18 percent higher than the U.S. average and 21 percent higher than the state average, which may be a concern for seniors on a tight budget. Even so, seniors can expect to spend about 8 percent less on grocery and health care expenses here than they would elsewhere in the country, which can help offset the high cost of other expenses. 
  • Howell seniors do not pay taxes on their monthly Social Security benefits, which can leave more money in the budget for assisted living. While income from retirement accounts are subject to taxation, the state provides a large deduction to help seniors hold on to more of their money. 
  • Howell's overall crime rate is 35 percent lower than Michigan's average and 46 percent lower than the national average, making it a safe option for seniors. 
  • Howell provides curb-to-curb public transportation courtesy of Livingston Essential Transportation Service. Seniors are eligible to receive a discount on their fare.
  • The Howell area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. Joseph Mercy Livingston, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
