Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bloomington

  • The cost of living in Bloomington is high in comparison to the United States and Minnesota averages. It receives a rating of 105.2 points, with housing and groceries costing more in the city than the state average. Seniors residing in assisted living communities have these costs covered in their monthly fees, however, making it easier to budget each month. 
  • In Bloomington, the violent crime rate is rated 12.7, while the national average is 22.7. However, the property crime rate is very high at 48.8, while the national average is 35.4.
