What to Consider About Assisted Living in Burnsville

Assisted living facilities fall under the auspices of the Minnesota Department of Health.

This oversight increases the quality of care and safety of seniors in assisted living communities.

These provide specialty services for nearly every health condition.
  • Health care costs in Burnsville fall below the national average. Measured on a 100-point scale with the U.S. average at 100, Burnsville comes in at 85.8. This means that health care in Burnsville is 14.2% less expensive than the same services in the United States as a whole.
