What to Consider About Assisted Living in Three Rivers

Located where the St. Joseph, Portage and Rocky Rivers converge, Three Rivers is a diverse community with a deep history as a trading hub. The city is currently home to more than 7,600 residents, with seniors making up 12.5% of the population. 

Seniors who need help with daily tasks can find support at one of the area's seven assisted living facilities. In Three Rivers, and throughout the state of Michigan, these types of facilities are licensed by the Michigan Department of Human Services and are often referred to as adult foster care or homes for the aged.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Three Rivers

  • The city's rich history provides a variety of local sites for seniors to enjoy. The charming downtown area is full of historic buildings, many of which are listed on the National Historic Register, and seniors can visit cultural venues, including the Carnegie Center for the Arts and Riviera Theater.
  • Like many other cities in Michigan, Three Rivers has very cold winters accompanied by an average 41 inches of snow each year, which may prevent seniors from participating in outdoor activities. Though brief, summers are warm and comfortable.
  • Seniors looking for an affordable retirement destination may find Three Rivers to be an appealing option. At 86.2, its overall cost of living is lower than both the U.S. national average of 100 and the statewide average of 96.7.
  • Crime rates in Three Rivers are slightly higher than they are across the state of Michigan. Violent crime is rated 29.9 on a scale to 100, compared to the statewide average of 25.3. The city's property crime rates are particularly high, scoring 57, compared to 28.1 in the state. Seniors may want to exercise extra caution when it comes to securing their personal property.
  • The St. Joseph County Transportation Authority (SJCTA) provides public transportation for residents of Three Rivers. In addition to the Three Rivers Circle Line fixed-route service, SJCTA also offers a FLEX route and curb-to-curb service. The senior my ride grant program allows seniors to use this service for a suggested donation of $2.
  • Three Rivers has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Sturgis.

Review of Birch Meadows AFC

We visited Birch Meadows in Three Rivers and it was not for us. It is laid out well, and it is a new facility (only three years old). There were too many restrictions so it was not right for us....
