St. Joseph, affectionately known as St. Joe, is a small community located on the shores of Lake Michigan. The area is rich in natural beauty, which is why it’s often called the Riviera of the Midwest. Residents have access to picturesque dune-lined beaches featuring historic lighthouses and a restored carousel. Although St. Joseph is home to just 8,317 residents, seniors represent nearly 20% of the population, slightly higher than the national average.

Assisted living residents in the area benefit from a very competitive cost of living that’s about 12% lower than the national average. Crime rates are low, and the climate is more comfortable than in other parts of the state. Although the city receives 77 inches of snow annually, assisted living facilities handle all exterior maintenance, so there’s no need to worry about shoveling or plowing. Summer highs rise into the 80s, which gives residents plenty of time to enjoy outdoor attractions like Silver Beach and Tiscornia Park.

According to Genworth Financial’s 2020 Cost of Care Survey, assisted living facilities in St. Joseph typically charge $4,003 per month, which is approximately $300 lower than the national average and $200 lower than other parts of the state.
