    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Leonard

    Leonard is located in Southeast Michigan in the northeast corner of Oakland County and about 40 miles from Detroit. The quaint village has a population of about 400 residents, 51 of whom are seniors, and offers the comforts of small-town living with the pleasures of nearby amenities such as the Detroit Institute of Arts and The Henry Ford Museum.

    Senior members of the community who need help with their personal care can choose between the two assisted living facilities in the village proper, along with another eight facilities in nearby areas such as Metamora, Oxford and Orion. Facilities in Michigan are regulated by The Department of Human Services and are officially known as homes for the aged and adult foster care.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Leonard

    • Leonard's seniors may benefit from Michigan’s tax-friendly policies. The state doesn’t tax Social Security income, although retirement savings account income and pensions are fully taxed.
    • Leonard’s cost of living is 134.7, higher than the Michigan average of 96.7 and the U.S. average of 100. The high cost of living in the area is driven primarily by housing costs. Seniors can still expect to pay less for groceries and healthcare than they would in other cities within the state.
    • Seniors worried about crime can breathe a sigh of relief in Leonard. The village’s violent crime rate is 9.7 and its property crime rate is 20.7, both considerably lower than the respective U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4.
    • The Leonard area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Rochester.
    • Seniors with lung or heart problems might benefit from the air quality in Leonard. The village’s air quality is rated 81, which is more than 20 points higher than the U.S. average of 58.
    • Leonard has summer highs of 82 degrees and winter lows of 16. Seniors who dislike extreme heat may enjoy the comfortable temperatures that Leonard has to offer. The village gets a lot of precipitation and has a rating of seven out of 100 on Sperling's Comfort Index, which could cause havoc for seniors with arthritic conditions.
