What to Consider About Assisted Living in Temperance

Temperance used to be called Bedford Center, but the wife of one of the town's founders was a member of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union and suggested the new name to encourage better behavior among the local residents. Prohibition eventually ended in this town of just 8,500 people, 17.6% of whom are seniors aged 65 and over, and today Temperance is home to four assisted living facilities. In Michigan, assisted living facilities are adult foster care facilities and are regulated by the Michigan Department of Human Services Bureau of Children and Adult Licensing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Temperance

  • The weather in Temperance is hot and humid in the summer, with winters that can get cold enough to cause issues for some seniors with COPD. Summertime highs average 84 degrees in July and August, while December and January lows average just 15 degrees overnight. Temperance is close enough to the lake to get less snow than most other parts of Michigan, though a solid 49 inches of rain fall here each year.
  • The cost of living in Temperance is generally close to the national average. Seniors in Temperance save almost 2% compared to the national rate for most personal and household expenses, but healthcare is generally 10% less expensive in Temperance than it is elsewhere in the country.
  • Crime rates in Temperance are virtually identical to the national average. In both property and crime rates, there is less than a 2% variance from the national median. One bright spot for seniors is that violent crime rates in Temperance do tend to run toward the low end of that 2% deviation, though property crimes are somewhat above it.
  • Public transportation in Temperance is provided by Lake Erie Transit. This service operates multiple routes in the region and connections to the Toledo Area Regional Transit Authority are available on request. Seniors aged 60 and over get half off scheduled bus service, as do veterans and riders with disabilities.
  • The Temperance area is home to world-class medical facilities, including ProMedica Flower Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Temperance has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Monroe County Commission on Aging, an organization that provides adult day care, clothing and food assistance, classes and caregiver assistance, as well as more than half a dozen senior centers.
