    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fargo

    The most populated city in North Dakota, Fargo is a college town where North Dakota State University is located. It is also the core city of the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area which also includes the towns of Moorhead, West Fargo and Dillworth. Seniors make up 10.9 percent of the population in Fargo and there are 15 assisted living facilities in the Fargo area to support them. They are all licensed by the North Dakota Department of Human Services. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fargo

    • The Fargo weather is predictably cold in the winter, with large amounts of snow. Lows remain in the single digits from December through February and stay at freezing until April. Summer temperatures will rise into the mid-80s but are generally pleasant.

    • Even though it is the biggest city in North Dakota, the air quality in Fargo is generally good.

    • The cost of living in Fargo is about even with the national average overall, if not slightly more costly. Most of this is due to higher housing costs. Necessities like groceries and health care are more expensive as well, though utilities and transportation are lower.

    • There is a surprisingly high crime rate in Fargo when the size of the city is taken into account, with its total crime comparison well above the state average and just below the national average. Fargo is only considered safer than 13 percent of American cities.

    • The Fargo metro area’s Valley Senior Services offers a metro senior ride service that consists of a bus holding up to 14 passengers who are 60 years or older. It will take them to go grocery shopping for a very low fee, or to meal sites.

    • The Fargo area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Sanford Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
