What to Consider About Assisted Living in Apple Valley

In a population of 52,099, Apple Valley is home to some 19,905 individuals age 50 or older. To meet the needs of these residents, Apple Valley has a total of 61 assisted living facilities (ALFs), three of which are within the city. Most of the communities operate in nearby locations, including Burnsville, Rosemount and Bloomington. The Minnesota Department of Health is responsible for ALF registration and authorizes ALFs to provide services such as medication administration, laundry, housekeeping, monitoring, socialization activities and transportation.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Apple Valley

  • Seniors might find winters in Apple Valley difficult, as snowfall in the city is 45 inches a year and temperatures typically falling as low as 6 degrees Fahrenheit. This contributes to Apple Valley's low Sperling's Comfort Index (38 out of 100).

  • Regarding air quality, Apple Valley holds its own against the national average of 58 out of 100, receiving a slightly worse rank of 53. The rank is based on the EPA’s National Air Toxic Assessment. Risk of respiratory disease sits at 50.4, which is lower than the rest of the Minneapolis-St. Paul-Bloomington metro (41.9) but higher than the rest of the state (54.1).

  • While Apple Valley isn’t as expensive as other areas of the state or metro region, it still has a cost of living of 114.6 compared to the national average of 100. Seniors with limited incomes might have to budget more tightly to make this work.

  • Apple Valley seniors might qualify for the Age 65 or Older-Disabled subtraction so that not as much of their income is taxed. But overall, the state doesn’t offer much financial help in the tax arena. Social security is taxed partially. Both public and private income are taxed.

  • Seniors should take reasonable safety precautions in Apple Valley to avoid crime targeting. Property crime ranks 38.4 compared to the national average of 38.1. But violent crime is lower than the national average of 31.1, resting at 25.7.

  • Apple Valley is home to world-class medical facilities, including Apple Valley Medical Center and Fairview Ridges Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
