What to Consider About Assisted Living in Anthem

Sitting at the base of Daisy Mountain, Anthem is a picturesque unincorporated community where seniors make up more than 16 percent of the population. For those who believe that assisted living may be the next step in their journey, the Anthem area offers 15 assisted living communities. Two of these are in Anthem and many more can be found in neighboring cities, including Phoenix, which is about 34 miles to the north.

Throughout Arizona, these facilities are called assisted living facilities and overseen by the state's Division of Licensing Services, Office of Assisted Living Licensing.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Anthem

  • Anthem offers seniors an array of attractions to explore. Besides local shops and restaurants, the area's points of interest include Ironwood Golf Course and the Daisy Mountain Miniature Railroad, which is located in Anthem's 63-acre community park. Seniors can check with individual assisted living facilities to see what types of outings they offer. 
  • Winters in Anthem are typically mild and pleasant for seniors, with no snow and an average low temperature of 44 degrees. Summers in the town, however, are hot, with an average high temperature of 104 degrees. On hotter days, seniors may want to stay inside where there is air conditioning, as overexposure to the heat could be uncomfortable or even dangerous. 
  • Anthem's overall cost of living is 29.5 percent higher than the U.S. average. Healthcare in the community, meanwhile, is about 2 percent more expensive than the national average.
  • Arizona cuts retirees a tax break by exempting Social Security retirement benefits. However, Anthem's seniors will still have to pay tax on other retirement income, such as withdrawals from an IRA or a 401(k) plan. For seniors who own property in the state, property taxes are fairly low compared to other states. However, sales taxes are relatively high.
  • The Anthem area is home to world-class medical facilities, including HonorHealth Deer Valley Medical Center and Abrazo Arrowhead Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Anthem is in Maricopa County, where the air earned an F for ozone and 24-particle pollution from the American Lung Association, which means that breathing Anthem's air may put seniors' health in danger.
