What to Consider About Assisted Living in Romulus

The Michigan Bureau of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs oversees assisted living facilities in Romulus and conducts annual site inspections to assess facilities’ compliance with state laws and licensing requirements. This department sets minimum standards for care planning, housing requirements and staffing ratios, as well as nutrition and medication services.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Romulus

  • The closest hospital to Romulus is Beaumont Hospital, Wayne, which sits a little less than 4 miles outside the city. This hospital has specializations in a broad range of areas of medicine, including cardiac catheterization and rehabilitation, imaging and endoscopy. It also houses a Level III Trauma Center and partners with the local airport and the CDC to manage public health events and concerns.
  • Seniors in Romulus don’t pay state income taxes on Social Security benefits, and they can claim large deductions to reduce their tax burden on other types of retirement income. This helps many seniors afford local assisted living expenses.  
  • The overall cost of living in Romulus trends about 4% over the national average. Relatively high transportation costs drive this increase, but many seniors obtain free or low-cost services through their assisted living communities. Health care, housing, food and energy expenses all come in below nationwide norms, promoting competitive assisted living costs.
  • Crime occurs at a higher frequency in Romulus than in 93% of U.S. cities and 95% of Michigan communities, even in comparison to similarly sized cities. Annually, the city reports about 10 violent crimes per 1,000 people, which ranks among the highest in the nation, along with 25 nonviolent crimes. For prospective assisted living residents with safety concerns, neighborhoods such as Romulus Southeast, Lajko Park and City Center report considerably less criminal activity.
  • Romulus scores 43 out of 100 points on the AARP Livability Index compared to the typical U.S. city score of 48, indicating few amenities and benefits for current and prospective assisted living residents. Although residents have limited access to transportation services, health care facilities, stores and libraries, many assisted living facilities promote residents’ comfort and quality of life through on-site amenities, such as general stores, multiple dining venues and wellness centers.
  • Romulus has a humid continental climate, which appeals to prospective assisted living residents who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons. The summer months have the most comfortable temperatures, with highs in July around 84 degrees Fahrenheit, and winters bring cold, snowy conditions, with temperatures around 18 degrees Fahrenheit and 42 inches of snowfall.
