What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lapeer

Seniors with an interest in early American history will find Lapeer, first settled by Alvin Hart in 1831, a treasure trove to explore. Lapeer was one of the earliest plated settlements in the then Northwest Territory and is home to the oldest continuously operating courthouse in the state. 

Seniors in this area in need of assisted living services will find six licensed assisted living facilities in Lapeer with another 19 located in the surrounding communities of Metamora, Davison, Columbiaville, Burton, Attica and Oxford - all regulated by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA).

The State of Michigan calls assisted living facilities  Adult Foster Care Facility (AFCF) and divides these communities into six categories depending on the number of people they serve and whether they have any live-in staff. As the number of people served increases, the rules governing the facility generally become more restrictive and staffing requirements increase.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lapeer

  • The cost of living in Lapeer is 13.7 percent lower than the average for the country and 2 percent lower than the state average for Michigan. Savings are to be had in virtually every category tracked making it ideal for seniors on a budget.

  • The Lapeer area is home to world-class medical facilities, including McLaren Lapeer Region - Community Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Lapeer offers seniors a wealth of arts and cultural activities to take advantage of. There is the Center for the Arts of Greater Lapeer housing both an art gallery with rotating exhibits and the Pix Theater featuring touring plays and performances by the city's own chamber orchestra. The city also has very active Historical Society among its many offerings.

  • Lapeer does have a property crime problem, with a rate of 51.5 it is more than twice as high as the state average and exceeds the national average by 13 points. However, with a violent crime rate of only 25.1 violent crime is a rarity in the city. Seniors could feel fairly secure walking the streets but would want to remember to lock their doors.

  • The climate in Lapeer is cold and wet. The city averages 64 inches of rain and snow each year and winter temperatures can remain below the freezing mark for weeks on end. For seniors who enjoy being out of doors, this makes the city less than ideal.

  • According to the EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment breathing conditions in  Lapeer leave something to be desired. With an air quality rating of 71, it falls short of the U.S. norm by 13 points. For seniors with respiratory or allergy issues, this could lead be a major cosideration.
