Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Rochester
- Rochester has a true four-season climate, with long winters that are often cold and snowy, warm summers with moderate humidity, and beautiful springs and falls. The average July high is 82 degrees, while the average January low is 16. The weather is ideal for seniors who enjoy variety and do not mind the cold.
- As an upscale suburb, Rochester has a cost of living that is 33 percent higher than the national average. This city's high housing costs drive much of this discrepancy. Items such as healthcare and groceries, which are staple purchases for many seniors and retirees, are actually much less expensive in Rochester than in a typical U.S. city.
- Michigan does not tax Social Security income, so Rochester retirees get to keep more money in their pockets to put toward quality healthcare. The state does tax private retirement benefits, such as 401(k)s and pensions, but offers a substantial deduction to reduce seniors' tax liability.
- Rochester's violent crime rate of 12.2 out of 100 and its property crime rate of 16.3 out of 100 are both much lower than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4. This makes it an ideal destination for seniors who prioritize keeping themselves and their valuables safe. Not to mention, assisted living facilities are known for offering an abundance of security features to keep residents safe, such as guards, cameras and locking exterior doors.
- The air quality in Rochester ranks as a 69 out of 100. This is substantially higher than the national average of 58. Seniors with asthma and other lung conditions can breathe much easier in Rochester than in a typical U.S. city.
- The Rochester area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Ascension Providence Rochester Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
