What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marquette

Marquette is located on the shore of Lake Superior in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The city has been ranked among the best places to retire by CBS News, CNN Money and HomeSnacks. Surprisingly, only 13.4% of the city’s 20,680 residents are senior citizens. 

To accommodate these seniors, there are two assisted living communities operating within city limits. The Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs regulates these facilities as homes for the aged.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marquette

  • There’s plenty for seniors who are nature lovers to do in Marquette. They can hike or fish at the 323-acre Presque Isle Park or go camping at Tourist Park. Other hiking spots include Sugarloaf Mountain Natural Area and Iron Ore Heritage Trail. For history buffs, another interesting attraction is the Marquette Maritime Museum.
  • The Marquette area is home to world-class medical facilities, including UP Health System - Marquette, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Marquette enjoys a relatively low rate of violent crime. Nationally, the violent crime rate is 4 per 1,000 residents, while in Michigan, it’s 4.5 per 1,000 residents. At only 3.59 per 1,000 residents, Marquette is noticeably safer, so it may be an ideal retirement destination for safety-conscious seniors. 
  • Marquette receives much more snowfall than the national average. The city receives 155 inches — nearly 13 feet — of snow each year, while nationally, the average is only 28 inches. Seniors who aren't fond of the cold or snow may not find this area enticing. 
  • Seniors receive half-priced fares on the city’s fixed route bus service. Most routes operate Monday through Saturday, though some routes offer limited Sunday service. The city also has door-to-door bus service. Reservations are required and rates start at $1.30 for seniors, and caregivers for the disabled ride free. With so many transit options, seniors can easily travel to and from errands and medical appointments. 
  • Marquette’s cost of living is 6% lower than the U.S. average, which may be helpful for seniors on a fixed income. Seniors may see savings in several areas, including housing, groceries and transportation.
