    What to Consider About Assisted Living in White Lake

    White Lake is a charter township in Oakland County, Michigan. In 2016, the community was named among the safest places in Michigan by ValuePenguin, which took the community's size, property crime rate and violent crime rate into account. 

    To support its local senior population, White Lake is home to two assisted living communities, with another 15 nearby. These facilities, which are licensed by the Department of Human Services, are officially designated as "homes for the aged" or "adult foster care," depending on the minimum age of the residents they are licensed to serve.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in White Lake

    • Seniors who prefer to experience four distinct seasons will enjoy White Lake's weather, which boasts moderate summers and chilly, snowy winters. Summer highs are in the low-80s, and winters have chilly temperatures of around 16 degrees Fahrenheit and get roughly 39 inches of snow. 
    • Oakland County, which is the county that White Lake is located in, received a grade of "F" for ozone pollution and a "B" for short-term particle pollution from the American Lung Association. This may impact the quality of life of seniors who have respiratory or cardiovascular illnesses. 
    • White Lake is a relatively expensive place to live, with an overall cost of living that is 17 percent higher than the national average. Seniors can expect to spend about 9 percent less on groceries and 17 percent less on healthcare than they would elsewhere in the country, which helps to offset other expenses.  
    • White Lake seniors are not taxed on their Social Security benefits. While other types of retirement income are subject to state income taxes, Michigan provides a fairly large deduction. 
    • The crime rate in White Lake is a little lower than the nationwide average, which may provide peace of mind for seniors and their loved ones. On a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest, the rate of violent crime is 29.6 and the rate of property crime is 31.7, compared to the respective national averages of 31.1 and 38.1.
    • The White Lake area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Commerce Township.
