What to Consider About Assisted Living in Plainwell

Plainwell is a small Michigan town of 3,822 people located in Allegan county about 10 miles south of Kalamazoo. The Plainwell community is home to 3 assisted living facilities (ALF) with 16 more being located in the surrounding area. The state of Michigan does not recognize the commonly used term assisted living facility using instead Adult Foster Care Facility (AFCF) in all official publications. All such facilities in Plainwell are regulated by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA). LARA places communities into one of six categories depending on the number of residents served and whether there is staff living on site. Regulations vary from one category to the next but generally are stricter as the number of people served increases. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Plainwell

  • With a cost of living  13.9 percent lower than the national average, Plainwell is attractive for seniors on a budget. Of particular interest is the savings to be had on groceries.

  • Plainwell receives an average of 6 feet of snow each year. Combine this with winter temps that can hover in the mid-teens for weeks at a time and it may not be the most suitable location for active seniors who enjoy being outdoors.

  • With violent and property crime rates of 10.7 and 33.4, on a scale of 1 to 100, Plainwell is a quiet community. This is good news for seniors with safety concerns.

  • According to EPA assessments, the air quality in Plainwell is 21 points below the national average. For seniors prone to respiratory problems this could make it an unsuitable place to live.

  • The Plainwell area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ascension Borgess-Pipp Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

  • Plainwell has an array of community resources for seniors, including the award winning Matter of Balance program, an organization that promotes physical activity for seniors fit and frail alike, as well as 1 senior center.
