What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mount Pleasant

The senior population of Mount Pleasant is 8.4 percent, well below the national average of 15.6 percent in the United States. Despite the low senior population, the Mount Pleasant area still has eight assisted living facilities, with six in Mount Pleasant and two in nearby towns like Midland. The Michigan Department of Human Services regulates assisted living in that state, including homes for the aged and adult foster care. A home for the aged is generally for people over the age of 60, while an adult foster care home is for any adult who requires special care. These facilities provide help with the activities of daily living, including hygiene, eating, grooming, medication reminders and general care.
