Top 10 Assisted Living Facilities in Fargo, ND

Seniors seeking a moderate cost of living with lower-than-average health care costs might consider a move to beautiful Fargo. Although North Dakota does tax retirement income, including Social Security benefits, the rate is so low that Kiplinger ranks North Dakota No. 4 on the list of best states for retirees. Fargo is the largest city in North Dakota, with an estimated population of nearly 125,000, 11.3% of whom are aged 65 and older.

Summers are cool in Fargo, which lies alongside the Red River in the southeast part of the state near the Minnesota border. June, July and August are considered the most pleasant months of the year, which makes it easy to enjoy outdoor activities. That’s especially helpful when the North Dakota Senior Games come to town every summer with a wide range of athletic tournaments for individuals and teams. Seniors considering assisted living facilities in the Fargo area can find 15 communities to choose from and can expect to pay an average monthly fee of about $3,984.
