What to Consider About Assisted Living in Eagan

Assisted living facilities in Minnesota are regulated by the Minnesota Department of Health. The Department of Health issues industry regulations all residential care communities have to adopt for licensure, and it conducts site inspections to ensure compliance.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Eagan

  • Minnesota’s notoriously cold winters bring more than 55 inches of snow to the Eagan area each year, which usually makes for a white Christmas and New Year’s winter sports outdoors. Summers in the Twin Cities region tend to be mild, with daily highs in summer averaging up to 83 degrees in July.
  • Minnesota can be an affordable place for seniors looking for a manageable cost of living. While common expenses are 11% above the national average, much of this is the high cost of housing. Health care in Eagan costs around 23% less than the national average.
  • Eagan has a lower crime rate than the nearby Minneapolis-St. Paul area, as well as the nation at large. Rates for both violent and property crime are just over one-third the national average, which encourages seniors to get outdoors and enjoy the local public spaces without fear.
  • The state of Minnesota can be a high-tax environment for many seniors, depending on how their retirement income is structured. Minnesota taxes income from all sources, including Social Security and pensions. Exemptions are available for many seniors, though it is best to discuss these with a tax expert.
  • Seniors who like to get around town have several options in the Eagan area. Regular bus service in Eagan is in the hands of the Minnesota Valley Transit Authority (MVTA), which offers discounted fares for seniors with a valid ID card they can present at the time of boarding. Dial-a-ride service is available for seniors who live away from the bus routes, with disabled ride services for seniors who need door-to-door assistance with non-emergency medical transportation.

Eagan seniors have a lot of options for getting out and enjoying their community. Local senior-friendly events include movies in the park, the food truck festival and a fall harvest festival that’s ideal for attending with visiting grandchildren.

Paying for Assisted Living in Eagan

Assisted living costs an average of $4,797 a month in Eagan, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey.
