    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Detroit Lakes

    Detroit Lakes is a historic town that began development as part of the Northern Pacific Railroad in 1871, and it's now a suburb of Detroit.  Seniors living here can select from 20 assisted living facilities (ALFs), 10 in Detroit Lakes, and 10 in located nearby communities. ALFs provide assistance with bathing, eating, grooming, medication reminders and general care. In Detroit Lakes, as in all of Minnesota, assisted living facilities are regulated by the Minnesota Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Detroit Lakes

    • The air quality in Detroit Lakes received an excellent Ozone rating of A and a Particle Pollution 24-hour score of B from the American Lung Association. This is good news for seniors with a respiratory illness or sensitive lungs.

    • The Detroit Lakes area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Essentia Health St. Mary's-Detroit Lakes, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • There are many attractions and things to do in the scenic Detroit Lakes. Seniors in the area might enjoy the annual Pow Wow, the Historic Holmes Theatre, Shakespeare in the Park or bird watching.

    • The cost of living in Detroit Lakes is 0.7 percent higher than U. S. average, quite low compared to the rest of the state which is 3.5 percent higher. Detroit Lakes seniors on a budget may find this area helps them save.

    • Seniors and their loved ones should know that crime in Detroit Lakes is higher than the national average. Violent crime is 35.2 out of 100 (1 being safest) compared to the U. S. average of 31.1. Property crime is even higher at 59.2 compared to the nation's 38.1 average.

    • The harsh winter temperatures in Detroit Lakes may make it difficult for some seniors to stay active and healthy throughout the year. The 45-inch annual snowfall could affect seniors with limited mobility, and the January low of -1 degree might bother seniors with respiratory conditions or those sensitive to the cold.
