What to Consider About Assisted Living in Monroe

Monroe, Michigan, has a rich history and was likely used as a campsite or village for people hundreds of years before the first European settlers arrived. Today, this city is home to nearly 20,000 people, including a senior community that makes up about 13% of the population. 

In Monroe, assisted living facilities are licensed by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. They are for those aged 60 and over and may also be referred to as homes for the aged. Monroe has two assisted living facilities, and there are 20 more nearby. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Monroe

 

  • Public transportation in Monroe is provided by Lake Erie Transit, which operates nine routes throughout Monroe County. Seniors age 60 and over are eligible to ride for a reduced rate. Additionally, the Health Van provides door-to-door service for seniors for non-emergency medical appointments. Both services are wheelchair-accessible. 
  • The air quality in Monroe is good, which may make the city a good option for seniors with conditions like asthma or heart disease. The American Lung Association gives Monroe County a B for short-term particle pollution and a passing score for annual particle pollution. 
  • Michigan does not impose state income tax on Social Security benefits, and while all other types of retirement income are taxed, there is a fairly large deduction available to offset the expense. This may leave more money in the budget for assisted living expenses in Monroe.  
  • The Monroe area is home to world-class medical facilities, includingProMedica Monroe Regional Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • On a 100-point crime index, safety in Monroe is rated 21, indicating that the city is safer than just 21% of cities of all sizes across the country. However, when compared only to similarly sized cities, Monroe's crime rate was near the average. This may make it a good option for seniors seeking out a safe community. 
  • Over the course of a year, temperatures in Monroe range between 19 degrees and 83 degrees. The warmest month of the year is July when highs are in the low-80s and lows are in the low-60s, and the coolest month of the year is January when highs are in the low-30s and lows are around 19 degrees. The region gets about 37 inches of snow annually, which may be a concern for seniors who rely on mobility aids.
