COVID-19 Rules for Assisted Living in Chandler

Since most COVID-19 rules for Assisted Living Communities and other Senior Living Facilities are set at the state level, you can view the specific rules for your state on our Guide to Assisted Living in Arizona. Keep in mind that every community has specific policies that they put in place to protect their residents, so you should contact your local community for more information.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Chandler

In Arizona, the Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing is responsible for the licensure and regulation of residential health care facilities, which includes assisted living communities. The bureau is also responsible for following up with consumer complaints and ensuring that safety procedures are up to par in the state’s assisted living communities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Chandler

  • The weather is a mixed bag of oppressive heat and warm, pleasant winter days. During the summer, temperatures regularly surpass 90 degrees, and with nearly 300 sunny days a year (compared to the national average of 205), Chandler can experience significant heat. Fortunately, winters are comfortable, with temps rarely dipping below 40 degrees.
  • The overall crime rate of Chandler is higher than the national average, but compared to communities of the same general size, it’s lower than average. Like other large-city suburbs, the crime rate varies by area, with some neighborhoods less desirable than others. The Chandler Police Department employs more than 330 sworn officers, equivalent to one police officer for approximately every 800 residents, compared to one officer for every 500 or so residents in the neighboring city of Mesa.
  • For seniors wishing to retire in Chandler, Arizona is very tax-friendly to seniors. Social Security benefits aren’t taxed, and there’s no estate or inheritance tax, leaving seniors free to award property or land to their loved ones without exorbitant costs. While the state and local sales tax is a little high at 8.4%, the state income tax range is under 3%.
  • Chandler is in a unique position within Arizona. The suburban community has a population of more than 250,000 people and plenty of local destinations for seniors to explore, including the Chandler Fashion Center and other shopping venues. Downtown Chandler is also quite walkable, with multiple parks and eateries. For seniors who get bored easily, Phoenix — and all of its cultural and social attractions — is just 20 miles to the north.
  • While medical costs are slightly higher in Chandler than in other parts of the state and the physicians per capita rate is less than the national average, the state has implemented legislation known as Proposition 449 to help grow the number of medical professionals in Arizona. This will also serve to benefit the local hospitals and medical facilities, including Chandler Regional Medical Center, which is regionally ranked as 5th in the state and is high-performing in eight conditions/procedures.

Paying for Assisted Living in Chandler

The cost of assisted living care in Chandler is $3,975 per month, just a few dollars less per month than the state’s average cost of $4,000 per month and almost $500 less than the national average for assisted living services.
