    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Perham

    Perham lies on the shores of Little Pine Lake in Otter Tail County, Minnesota. The county is home to nearly 60,000 residents and nearly a quarter of its population is made up of senior citizens aged 65 and older.

    There are six assisted living facilities in Perham to provide long-term care to seniors who need it. Their compliance is closely monitored by the Minnesota Department of Human Services

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Perham

    • Crime is extremely low in Perham when compared with the rest of the state. Only 7.89 property crimes and 0.29 violent crimes per 1,000 residents occur in the city each month, which is less than half that of the average Minnesota city. Even so, it's always a good idea for senior citizens to inquire about security when considering moving to an assisted living facility. 
    • The cost of living in Perham is nearly 10% lower than in the average U.S. city, which makes the area a great choice for seniors who are on a tight budget. 
    • The annual snowfall amount in Perham is 20 inches higher than the national average, which can make it difficult for seniors to get around during the winter, particularly if they're unable to drive. 
    • Social security income and other forms of retirement income are subject to income tax in Minnesota. Despite the low cost of living in Pelham, seniors with limited incomes should consider this before choosing to live in the area. 
    • The Perham area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Perham Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • There is plenty of arts and culture for seniors in the Perham area to enjoy, including the History Museum of Otter County, which accepts admission by donation for those who are able to pay.
