What to Consider About Assisted Living in Woodbury

The Minnesota Department of Health is in charge of licensing and inspecting assisted living communities. Seniors and their caregivers can find a list of licensed facilities in the state through the Department.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Woodbury

  • Though the overall cost of living in Woodbury is 13 points higher than the national average on a 100-point scale, largely due to high housing and transportation costs, seniors benefit from health care costs that are 76 points lower than average. Utility costs are also slightly more affordable than the national mean.
  • Summer weather in Woodbury is warm and pleasant, with average highs around 82 degrees. The city averages 33 inches of rain a year. However, the city’s comfort index dips in the winter, when the average low dips to 6 degrees and snow piles up at an average rate of 48 inches per year.
  • Both violent and property crime rates in Woodbury are lower than the U.S. average. Violent crime rates are just 7.6 compared to 22.7 for the national average. Property crime rates are almost six points lower than the national average.
  • Even though Minnesota is not a tax-friendly state for seniors due to its full taxation of retirement account withdrawals and pensions, programs from the Minnesota Board on Aging can help lessen the impact of these high taxes by helping seniors save in other areas.
  • Go Washington County offers the Metro Mobility public transit option for seniors who need help due to their disabilities. It also has a partnership with several local health care plans to provide transportation to medical appointments for area seniors.
