What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kentwood

The culturally diverse city of Kentwood is located in Kent County, Michigan and boasts more than 80 restaurants, a sprawling shopping mall and more than a dozen parks for seniors to explore. The city has a population of over 51,000 residents, of which more than 12 percent are over the age of 65. Local seniors have four assisted living facilities within the city proper to choose from, and there are two more nearby for seniors who don't mind venturing out from the city. 

In Kentwood, as in all of Michigan, assisted living facilities are categorized as "homes for the aged" or "adult foster care," depending on the minimum age of the residents that they are licensed to care for. All facilities are licensed and regulated by the Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kentwood

  • Kentwood's cost of living is on par with the state average and a little below the U.S. average, which may appeal to seniors who have a fixed income. Healthcare expenses are about 17 percent less here than elsewhere in the country, and seniors can expect to spend about 9 percent less on groceries. 
  • As is the case in most states, Michigan does not tax Social Security benefits. While other types of retirement income are taxed, the state offers a large deduction, which may let seniors put more money in their assisted living budget. 
  • Kentwood is a relatively safe city with a violent crime rate that is lower than state and national averages. The property crime rate is 48 percent higher than Michigan's average and 16 percent higher than the national average, however, so seniors may want to ensure their vehicles are locked and their belongings secured when they're out alone. 
  • Public transit in Kentwood is provided by The Rapid, a bus service that operates more than two dozen routes throughout the city and region. Seniors over the age of 65 can receive a discount on their fare.
  • The Kentwood area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Grand Rapids.
  • Kentwood has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Kentwood Parks and Recreation, an organization that offers an array of sports, fitness and enrichment programs for seniors, as well as one senior center.
