What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brooklyn Center

The Minnesota Department of Health monitors and licenses all assisted living facilities in Brooklyn Center through its Health Regulation Division. To ensure a consistent standard of care statewide and in Brooklyn Center, the department requires facilities to complete an annual licensing process and undergo regular facility inspections. The department also helps to resolve complaints regarding substandard care and conditions.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brooklyn Center

 

  • Although Minnesota taxes all of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, seniors reduce what they owe to the state through several deductions and exemptions. Although the local sales tax rate exceeds the national norm, the state exempts items such as food and medications, which may maximize affordability for assisted living residents.

 

  • Brooklyn Center doesn’t have its own hospital; however, assisted living residents can obtain comprehensive health and wellness services from Mercy Hospital – Unity Campus in nearby Fridley. This hospital carries specialties in spine health, cardiovascular care, joint replacement and rehabilitation therapies, and it has a team that provides geriatric psychiatric services.

 

  • Hennepin County, where Brooklyn Center is located, ranks 37 out of the state’s 87 surveyed counties for overall health. It features one of the longest life expectancies in the nation of 80.6 years compared to 78.5 nationally, and just 10% of adults self-report poor or fair health compared to 12% nationally. Additionally, the region has numerous health care providers, with residents having access to one physician per 820 people compared to the national rate of 1,310. This may result in relatively easy scheduling for primary or specialty medical services.

 

  • Brooklyn Center scores 59 out of 100 points on the AARP Livability Index versus the average city score of 48 points, meaning that it offers greater comfort for seniors than most U.S. communities. The city has a variety of age-friendly amenities to support an engaged lifestyle, including 2.7 cultural institutions per 10,000 people compared to 1.7 nationally, and reliable, ADA-accessible public transportation reduces seniors’ need to drive.

 

  • Brooklyn Center ranks as safer than just 6% of communities nationwide and 4% of cities in Minnesota, with residents having a one in 27 chance of becoming victims of any type of crime. Its violent crime rate tracks among the highest in the nation at 6.21 incidents per 1,000 people, and property crime occurs even more prevalently at a rate of 30.76. Fortunately, seniors with safety concerns can choose from assisted living facilities with advanced safety features such as fully enclosed courtyards and security gates.
