Survey Names Top Cities for Senior Living

Thursday, 29 Sep 2011 08:51 AM

By Greg McDonald

A new survey on cities that are the best in the United States for senior living, names destinations that might not be at the top of list of the best places to retire, but do name those that offer the best services for the older generation.
 
Minneapolis was ranked No. 1, followed by Boston, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Denver, according to the survey conducted for the Bankers Life and Casualty Company Center for a Secure Retirement.
 
The criteria used to rank the cities ranged from the availability of quality healthcare, housing, and transportation to weather, crime rates, and the overall cost of living.
 
“Most surprising is that the survey results contain many cities we don’t often associate with senior living,” said Bankers Life president Scott Perry. “We weren’t interested in another study on where to enjoy your retirement, but instead wanted to find cities that did the best job in providing the services and support that seniors need.  
 
“The top-ranked cities aren’t what come to mind when you think about where to spend your golden years, but they scored high in the criteria most important to the 65 and up bracket,” he said.
