    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Watertown

    Watertown, Minnesota, is recognized for its scenic Crow River, farmers' market and library. The remodeled Watertown Public Library features a technology lab. In addition to its on-site features, the library has a homebound delivery service, providing shut-in residents with library materials delivered right to their door. This library serves the city's 4,200 residents, about 12% of whom are aged 65 and over.  

    In spite of its modest size, Watertown has two assisted living facilities for local seniors to choose from, and those seeking more options find nine more facilities in nearby cities like Spring Park and Waconia. These facilities, like all of those in the state, register annually with the Department of Health

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Watertown

    • The Watertown area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Waconia.
    • In Watertown, as in all of Minnesota, retirement income is taxed at the state level, including Social Security benefits. This may affect how much money seniors have for assisted living expenses.  
    • Watertown has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Commission on Aging, an organization that provides social and recreational programs, transportation services and information services to local seniors, via the local senior center.
    • Watertown's cost of living is about 10% higher than the statewide average and 16% higher than the national average, which may be a consideration for seniors who are seeking out an affordable city to live in during their retirement years. 
    • The July high in Watertown is 82 degrees, making it among the warmer cities in the state. Winters are very cold with lows around 3 degrees, and the region receives an average of 47 inches of snow per year. In December, the city receives an average of 11 inches of snow, and it snows in Watertown six months of the year. Watertown's climate may be well-suited to seniors who enjoy experiencing distinct seasons.   
    • Watertown is a relatively safe city with an overall crime rate that is below the national average, which may make it a good option for independent seniors.
