Coon Rapids is a large suburb of Minneapolis known for its outdoor recreational attractions. It’s estimated that 63,599 people live in Coon Rapids, with 16.2% of them aged 65 and over.

Residing in an assisted living community is a good option for seniors who don’t need the round-the-clock medical care offered in a skilled nursing home but can no longer live an independent lifestyle. Seniors living in the Coon Rapids area pay an average of $4,797 per month to live in an assisted living community, nearly $500 less than the U.S. average. 

This guide gives an overview of assisted living in the Coon Rapids area, average costs for care, resources available to support seniors and the pros and cons of living there.
