Paying for Assisted Living in Bloomington

Due to the close proximity of the two cities, Bloomington shares cost data with Minneapolis. According to Genworth Financial’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living services in Bloomington costs an average of $4,797 per month, which is higher than the statewide average of $4,283 and the national average of $4,300.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

Because assisted living costs average $4,797 per month in Bloomington, seniors who are trying to reduce living costs might consider living away from Bloomington and the Twin Cities area. Bloomington is not the most expensive city in Minnesota for assisted living, however. It costs slightly lower than Mankato’s average of $4,968 per month, making it the most expensive city in the state, despite being one of the cities with the smallest population. Duluth’s assisted living cost of $3,221 per month is over $1,500 less than the price for the same services in Bloomington, which represents the biggest price difference of any Minnesota city. Duluth is also the first city on the list that falls below national and state averages for assisted living services. Rochester is close behind with an average cost of $3,105 per month, while St. Cloud costs an average of $2,723 per month, making it the only city to drop below the $3,000 mark.
