What to Consider About Assisted Living in Anoka

The Minnesota Department of Health regulates assisted living communities through its Assisted Living Licensure program. Along with enforcing health and safety rules, the agency inspects communities to protect the rights of assisted living residents. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Anoka

 

  • The AARP Livability Index gives Anoka an overall score of 62, putting it in the top half of communities nationwide. Additionally, Minnesota as a whole maintains membership in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities. This indicates that the state and local governments strive to be senior-friendly. 

 

  • Crime rates in Anoka rank significantly below Minnesota's statewide norm. In a typical year, the city's violent crime rate is about 11% lower than the state average, while the property crime rate comes in 36.1% lower. For added peace of mind, assisted living communities feature security cameras and monitored entrances to protect residents.

 

  • The city's cost of living sits about 13.1% higher than the U.S. average. However, seniors in assisted living communities often avoid rising costs thanks to fixed monthly rates that include housing, food and personal care. Additionally, Minnesota doesn't impose sales taxes on numerous essential items, including clothing, food and health products.

 

  • Anoka doesn't have a city income tax. However, seniors must pay Minnesota's statewide retirement taxes. Rates range from 5.35% to 9.85% depending on income, but qualifying seniors can reduce their tax bills by deducting part of their Social Security benefits. Additionally, disabled seniors or those aged 65 or older may qualify for other state tax deductions.

 

  • The area experiences about 50 inches of snowfall annually, well above the U.S. norm of 28 inches. The snowy season often starts in October and ends in May, with peak snowfall occurring around mid-December. On the other hand, Anoka's summer brings highs around 83 degrees Fahrenheit and mostly sunny skies. For comfort and safety during poor weather, Anoka's assisted living communities coordinate indoor entertainment and social activities.
