    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Forest Lake

    Summer homes on the shores of the lake helped fuel the growth of the city of Forest Lake. Senior fishing enthusiasts have plenty of opportunities to land pike, bass and walleye on Forest Lake, with boats on the lake in summer and ice fishing in winter.

    The city is home to around 20,000 people and residents aged 65 and over make up over 13 percent of the population. There are 25 assisted living facilities in the area offering accommodation to seniors who want some help with activities of daily living while staying mostly independent. In Forest Lake, and all of Minnesota, assisted living facilities are overseen by the Home Care and Assisted Living Program.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Forest Lake

    • Seniors with respiratory conditions may appreciate the clean air in Forest Lake. The State of the Air 2019 report gives Washington County, including Forest Lake, high grades in the three categories used to measure air quality.
    • The Forest Lake area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Fairview Lakes Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Public transport in Forest Lake is provided by Metro Transit. Reduced fares are available for people aged 65 and older during non-rush hours, and seniors may also be able to utilize Metro Mobility and Transit Link service which provide services to riders unable to use the regular routes.
    • All forms of retirement income are taxed in Minnesota, including money from retirement funds, pensions and Social Security. In addition, state sales taxes are the sixth highest in the country, although some everyday items, including medications and most groceries and clothing, are exempt from sales tax. Seniors in the state may have a large tax bill, which can impact their assisted living budget.
    • In Forest Lake, crime occurs at a rate of 39 crimes per 1,000 residents, which is higher than 94 percent of other communities in Minnesota. While the violent crime rate is lower than the state average, the property crime rate is 37.02, more than 15 points higher than the Minnesota rate. Seniors may wish to ask about security measures when touring facilities.
    • Forest Lake is known for its harsh winters, with an average low in January of 3 degrees. The city gets 54 inches of snow each year, 26 inches more than the national average, and seniors may wish to ask facilities about their plans for extreme weather events.
