Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Superior
- Superior has an array of community resources for seniors, including Senior Connections, an organization that provides services for seniors, including medical equipment loans and technology classes and three senior centers.
- Public transit in Superior is provided by the Duluth Transit Authority. Some seniors may be eligible for Special Transit RIDE (STRIDE), a door-to-door service for people with disabilities. Senior Connections also has a transport program for people aged 55 and over.
- Retirees who rely on a government pension or Social Security income will benefit from Wisconsin's tax policy, which does not tax these income types. However, income from retirement accounts and private pensions are subject to income tax, which will eat into the budget of seniors relying on these income sources.
- The cost of living in Superior is around 16 percent lower than the national average. The biggest factor in this is the low cost of housing, but seniors will still find that their bills for groceries, transport and healthcare are lower than in other parts of Wisconsin.
- Superior has a higher crime rate than 97 percent of Wisconsin cities, a statistic which may make some seniors feel unsafe. Although the violent crime rate is slightly lower than the state average, the property crime rate is almost two-and-a-half times higher.
- Seniors who have health conditions made worse by extreme cold will struggle with Superior winters. In January, the average low temperature is only four degrees, and the city averages 64 inches of snow. Summers do stay mild, with July highs averaging 76 degrees, perfect for those who don't like extreme heat.
