    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Okemos

    Okemos, which is a suburb of Lansing, has been ranked among the best places to live in the nation and has been called the best place to live in Michigan. As of the 2010 census, this community had a little over 20,000 residents, about 14 percent of whom were aged 65 and over. 

    The Okemos region has 20 assisted living facilities, including three in the city proper. In Michigan, assisted living facilities are officially called homes for the aged and are for adults aged 60 and over. These facilities are licensed and monitored by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Okemos

    • The air quality in Okemos is moderate, which may be beneficial for seniors with respiratory conditions like asthma. The American Lung Association gave Ingham County, where Okemos is located, a C for ozone pollution and an A for short-term particle pollution.  
    • The Okemos area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Lansing.
    • Okemos seniors do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits, and there is a sizable deduction on all other types of retirement income. The sales tax rate in the state is moderate, but property taxes are relatively high here.
    • The overall cost of living in Okemos is roughly 10 percent higher than state and national averages, primarily because of the community's high housing costs. Healthcare, groceries and utilities, however, are below state averages, which may offset seniors' rent and mortgages costs.
    • Okemos' climate is several degrees cooler than the national average, which may appeal to seniors who are sensitive to high temperatures. July, the warmest month of the year, has highs around 80 degrees and lows around 60 degrees. January, which is this community's coolest month, has highs around 30 degrees and lows in the mid-teens. 
    • Okemos is ranked safer than just 22 percent of U.S. cities of all sizes and 17 percent of Michigan cities. However, when compared only to similarly sized cities, Okemos' crime rate is on par with the average. Seniors may want to ensure that they keep their vehicles locked and are aware of their surroundings when they're out in the community.
