    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Winona

    Winona, a picturesque city in the southeastern region of Minnesota, is home to Sugar Loaf, a bluff on the Mississippi River that is topped with a large rock pinnacle. The Winona area is home to 11 assisted living facilities, with seven in the city and four located throughout the surrounding region. Assisted living facilities in Winona must register annually with the Department of Health, and they provide a range of both supportive and health-related services for one or more residents.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Winona

    • Winona rates 46 out of 100 on Sperling's Comfort Index, compared to the national average of 54. This is primarily due to the plunging winter temperatures and amount of snow the region receives. The average January low is 8 degrees, and the city sees about 34 inches of snow annually. Summer temperatures are mild, however, with July highs in the low-80s, giving seniors plenty of opportunities to enjoy area amenities. 

    • The cost of living in Winona is about 12 percent below the national average, making this an affordable city for seniors. While housing is the biggest factor affecting the overall cost of living, seniors can also expect to spend about 5 percent less on groceries, 2 percent less on health care and transportation and 4 percent less on miscellaneous expenses than they would elsewhere.

    • The overall crime rate in Winona is a little higher than both the state and national averages, but it’s important to note that this is primarily due to the relatively high rate of property crime, which is 32 percent higher than the state average and 11 percent higher than the national average. When it comes to violent crime, the rate is actually 30 percent below the state average and 56 percent lower than the national average.

    • City bus service in Winona is provided courtesy of Winona Transit Service, which operates four routes throughout the city. Seniors can receive a discount on single-way fare and monthly passes.

    • The Winona area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Winona Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
