What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fairmont

Known as the City of Lakes, Fairmont is a small community located in south Minnesota. The Fairmont area is home to nine assisted living facilities, known in Minnesota as Home Care Providers. Four of these facilities are located directly in Fairmont, with the remaining five located in the nearby communities of Sherburn, Winnebago, Truman and Blue Earth. All home care providers in Minnesota are regulated and closely monitored by the Minnesota Department of Health

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fairmont

  • Fairmont's cost of living is low compared to the U.S. national average. Overall costs are 10.8 percent lower than the national average. This may give seniors more money to allocate towards the cost of assisted living.

Fairmont also sees an average snowfall of 45 inches in the wintertime, which is 19 inches more than the national average. Seniors who prefer a more comfortable climate may find Fairmont's weather unpleasant.

  • Minnesota charges income tax on seniors' social security checks, which means an additional expense for seniors living in Fairmont.

  • Prairie Lakes Transit provides seniors with a safe public transportation option. However, shuttles and buses are only available certain hours and routes are limited.
  • Seniors can feel safe living in Fairmont, as crime rates are considerably low. For every 1000 residents, only 20.37 incidents of property crime are reported annually, which is lower than the U.S. average of 25 crimes per 1,000 people.
