Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Edina
- Edina, Minnesota, has harsh winters that might limit seniors' ability to travel for entertainment, medical care or necessities. The overall Sperling's Comfort Index is 41 out of 100 compared to the national average of 54, and the city receives a healthy 53 inches of snow every year. Temps usually fall between 7 and 84 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Seniors with respiratory conditions might struggle with Edina's air quality. The city ranks at 28 out of 100 (100 being worst) on the National Air Toxics Assessment, a full 30 percent lower than the national average.
- Edina, Minnesota, is pricier than the average of 100, sitting at 140.6. Housing is the biggest culprit. These higher rates might mean that Edina is out of the price range for some seniors, who typically have more limited incomes.
