    What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Fargo

    Conservation-minded seniors may appreciate West Fargo's participation in the Arbor Day Foundation’s Tree City USA program. The ceremonial tree planting on Arbor Day is one of the city’s most popular annual celebrations, with both young students and seniors actively involved. Of West Fargo’s population of about 36,600, 8.6% is made up of residents aged 65 and older.

    When seniors need help with the activities of daily living, such as dressing, grooming and cooking, they have three assisted living facilities (ALFs) and Basic Care Facilities (BCFs) in West Fargo to turn to. Another 11 in surrounding cities provide a range of choices. ALFs and BCFs in West Fargo and the rest of the state must be licensed by both the state Department of Human Services and the North Dakota Department of Health.
