What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cottage Grove

Resting on the north bank of the Mississippi River, Cottage Grove is a community where 22 percent of residents are age 55 or older. While only three assisted living facilities are within the city, 61 other facilities are nearby in areas such as Inver Grove Heights, Hastings, Woodbury, St. Paul and River Falls. All of the facilities in or near Cottage Grove are overseen by the Minnesota Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cottage Grove

  • Cottage Grove, Minnesota’s Sperling Comfort Index is just 40 out of 100, compared to the national average of 54. This isn’t surprising given that snowfall is 44 inches per year (the national average is 26) and the low temperature is around 7 degrees Fahrenheit. Winters might prove difficult for seniors in the area, but high temperatures are around 83 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer, and there are approximately 194 sunny days a year.

  • Based on the EPA’s National Air Toxics Assessment, Cottage Grove is exactly on par with the national average of 58 out of 100. The risk of respiratory disease is higher than for the rest of the metro area, as is the risk of developing cancer. These risks are comparable to state's risk rates, however.

  • Cost of living in Cottage Grove, Minnesota is a little higher than the national average. Housing aside, miscellaneous expenses, like groceries, contribute most to the higher expenses.

  • Residents of Cottage Grove have to pay full tax on both public and private pension income, as well as a partial tax on Social Security income. The state does offer a deduction for seniors called the Age 65 or Older-Disabled subtraction.

  • Crime in Cottage Grove ranks lower than the national average. Property crime is 26.5 out of 100 compared to the national rank of 38.1. Violent crime, ranking 21.1 for the city, is lower than the national average of 31.1. Because of this seniors can view the area as fairly safe.

  • The Cottage Grove area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Regina Hospital, HealthEast Clinic Cottage Grove and River Valley Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
