Of the town's 9,148 people, 18% are at least 65 years old, and those in this age group seeking help with the tasks of daily living can find assistance at one of the three assisted living facilities within Smiths Creek or one of the three other facilities located in nearby communities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Smiths Creek

    • Smiths Creek has a violent crime rate of 20.7 and a property crime rate of 24.7 compared to the U.S. averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. These lower crime rates might help seniors feel more confident when attending appointments in town. However, seniors may wish to ask about security measures while touring facilities for further peace of mind.

    • With an annual temperature range of 16-80 degrees, Smiths Creek offers moderate summers and cold winters that may be a challenge to seniors sensitive to the cold.

There are 177 sunny days here, compared to the U.S. average of 205.
    • The Smiths Creek area has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Port Huron.
    • With one of the highest air quality scores in the nation, Smiths Creek rates an 83, compared to the national baseline of 58. This may be great news for seniors looking for better air quality as measured by the EPA's National Air Toxics Assessment.
    • At 91.7, the cost of living in Smiths Creek is 5% lower than the state median and about 8% lower than the national average. This is driven by housing costs that are about 10% lower than state and 33% lower than national averages.
