    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Saint Peter

    Saint Peter, which is located in the Minnesota River Valley, was originally intended to be the capital city of Minnesota. Although Saint Paul ended up with that designation, the city's extra-wide streets show how the state's founders designed the city to accommodate a higher volume of traffic. Today, the city has about 12,000 residents, about 14% of whom are aged 65 and up. 

    Saint Peter has three assisted living facilities with over a dozen more nearby. These facilities provide supportive and health-related services for at least one resident, and they are required to register with the Department of Health on an annual basis. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Saint Peter

    • The Saint Peter area is home to world-class medical facilities, including River's Edge Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness. 
    • Saint Peter is a fairly affordable place to live, which may make it a good option for seniors looking for an affordable city to spend their retirement. The overall cost of living in this city is about 5% below the national average and 10% below the statewide average. 
    • Saint Peter's summers are long and warm with July highs around 83 degrees. Winters are very cold with January highs around 24 degrees and lows in the single digits. The city receives 39 inches of annual snowfall, which is higher than the national average of 28 inches but lower than the statewide average of 47 inches. This may be a consideration for seniors who rely on mobility aids. 
    • Minnesota is among the handful of states in which taxpayers pay state income tax on all types of retirement income, including Social Security benefits. This could affect how much money is available for assisted living in Saint Peter. 
    • While Saint Peter's crime rate is near the average when compared to that of all cities of all sizes across the country, its crime rate is low compared to similarly sized U.S. cities. Seniors who are looking for a safe community for assisted living may want to consider Saint Peter. 
    • Public transportation in Saint Peter is provided by Minnesota River Valley Transit. MRVT operates a Dial-a-Ride service Monday through Saturday. Seniors can call (888) 880-4696 for same day service or to schedule a ride.
