Known as the Land of 10,000 Lakes, Minnesota is truly a paradise for nature lovers. Even in urban areas, there are oases where you can relax next to a lake or a pond. In Minnesota, you will be able to hear the characteristic calls of the state bird, the common loon. The word "loon" comes from a Norwegian term meaning wild, sad cry.

Minnesota's state flower is the pink and white lady slipper. It pops up in wooded areas in early summer to enhance the beauty of the forests with its colors.

Minneapolis and St. Paul are known as the Twin Cities and are the two largest cities in the state. St. Paul is the capital of the state and has been since 1858 when Minnesota was admitted to the U.S. Rochester, where the Mayo Clinic is located, is the third largest city. Coming in at fourth place is the town of Bloomington. Fifth is the charming city of Duluth, which is an important northern port town located right on the tip of Lake Superior. With Minnesota's big cities, there are many high-quality assisted living communities that can be found.

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted or independent living communities are also known as retirement communities or nursing homes in Minnesota. At these facilities, residents are provided with assistance for things like housekeeping, cooking meals, doing laundry and dressing as well as other activities of daily living (ADLs), and residents are also able to remain as independent as possible while staying at these places.

What Does Assisted Living Cost in Minnesota?

The most popular cities for assisted living in Minnesota are mainly concentrated around the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. The Twin Cities region has an average monthly assisted living cost of $4,506. Outside of this metropolitan area, a city like Duluth has a monthly cost of living of $3,650. For the rest of the state, the monthly cost of an assisted living facility is only $2,819.

Since the baby boomer population began reaching retirement, the number of seniors has been increasing in Minnesota. In this current decade, the number of those turning 65 will be about 285,000. This figure is bigger than the previous four decades combined. Between now and the year 2030, the senior population in Minnesota is likely to double. By 2030, about one person out of every five people in the state will be age 65 or over.

How Is Assisted Living Regulated in Minnesota?

The Health Regulation Division at the Minnesota Department of Health is responsible for issuing state licenses required for all nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Minnesota. The Health Regulation Division is also required to monitor all facilities for compliance with state regulations and guidelines and to ensure the health and safety of all assisted living and nursing home residents.

According to Minnesota law, all clients in state settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, home care and supervised living facilities must be informed of their rights. The Combined Bill of Rights for all Assisted Living Clients is available in several languages and different print sizes as well as a PDF format.

How Is Assisted Living in Minnesota Affected by Laws and Taxes?

Once a person reaches the age of 65, tax responsibilities change. If Social Security is your only income, you most likely will not be required to file state or federal income taxes. Otherwise, Minnesota taxes equally the amount of benefits that are taxed federally. Fortunately, medical expenses, including assisted living expenses, are tax-deductible. Also, you may be eligible for many Minnesota deductions, credits or programs. Some of these include the:

  • Age 65 or older disabled subtraction
  • Social Security benefit subtraction
  • Net interest from U.S. bonds subtraction
  • Charitable contributions over $500 subtraction
  • Railroad Retirement Board benefits subtraction
  • Long-term care insurance credit
  • Homestead credit refund or renter's property tax refund
  • Senior citizen property tax deferral program

Politics in Minnesota

Minnesotans love their politics and are well-known for that. The state largely leans to the left of the political spectrum and has a history of being populist and progressive. Since 1976, the citizens of the state have voted for Democrats in all of the presidential elections. Since 1932, the state has voted Republican in only three presidential elections. In 1984, when Ronald Reagan defeated Walter Mondale in a landslide election, only Minnesota and the District of Columbia gave electoral votes to Mondale.

Fun Facts

  • Minnesota is responsible for revolutionizing shopping. Back in 1956, the first fully enclosed and climate-controlled shopping mall in the world, the Southdale Center, opened in Edina, Minnesota. Still operating today, Southdale has 123 shops that cover 1,300,000 square feet of real estate. Minnesota is also home to the largest mall in the United States, the Mall of America, which opened on August 11, 1992. This mall gets about 42 million visitors a year and employs over 11,000 people. It is big enough to hold seven Yankee Stadiums, and it has its own amusement park right in the middle.

  • Minnesota may be called the Land of 10,000 Lakes, but it actually has 11,842 of them. It has more miles of shoreline than the states of Hawaii, Florida and California combined. That's 90,000 miles of shoreline. No wonder it's so easy to find a quiet spot to fish in Minnesota.

  • Minnesota is the home of the tinned meat product SPAM. The Hormel Foods Corporation has its SPAM manufacturing facility in Austin, Minnesota.
