    What to Consider About Assisted Living in St Peter

    For a small city of just under 12,000 people, St. Peter, Minnesota, offers a lot of history and culture that seniors might find entertaining. It was once intended to be the capital of the state, has produced five governors, currently boast of over a dozen sites on the National Historical Record and plays host to the annual Nobel Conference.

    To help care for the seniors that make up 14.3% of its population, the city has three assisted living facilities, and there are 13 more in the surrounding areas. All are regulated by the Minnesota Department of Health.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in St Peter

    • Saint Peter has a violent crime rate that is 14 points below the national average and seven points below the state median. With similar numbers also being reported for property crimes, seniors in St. Peter can feel safe when venturing out into the city.
    • With highs only climbing into the low 80s, St. Peter's summer climate is ideal for active seniors who enjoy being outdoors. However, single-digit temperatures and an average of 39 inches of snow each year could make winters challenging.
    • The cost of living in St. Peter is 4.5% below the national median and 11% below the state's average. Healthcare costs are 15 points lower than the national average, which might make the area more affordable for seniors with chronic medical conditions.
    • According to the EPA's National Air Toxics Assesment, the air in St. Peter is 10% cleaner than the national average. For seniors with pulmonary issues or respiratory problems, this could be good news. 
    • Public transportation in St. Peter is provided by Minnesota River Valley Transit which operates on a 'call for a ride' system rather than running regular routes. Fares vary depending on the destination, but they do offer seniors discounts. Seniors can save even more money by buying tickets in books of ten.
    • The St. Peter area is home to world-class medical facilities, including city-owned River's Edge Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
