What to Consider About Assisted Living in Gilbert

In Gilbert and the rest of the state, assisted living facilities are governed by the Arizona Department of Health Services. This department ensures that long-term care homes preserve the dignity and quality of life of their residents with high-quality services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Gilbert

  • Gilbert gets lots of sun, with 91 more sunny days than the U.S. average. It has a dry climate with low rainfall and no snow in the winter.
  • Gilbert is a very safe place to live with low crime rates. Property crime in Gilbert ranks 23.1 points compared to the U.S.’s 35.4. Its violent crime rate is less than half of the national median. 

  • Gilbert has slightly fewer physicians per capita than the national average, at 201 per 100,000 people compared to 210. However, the local Mercy Gilbert Medical Center has been recognized as one of the best in the state by U.S. News, meaning that quality health care isn’t hard to find.
  • The air quality here is good compared to many other U.S. cities, at four points higher than the average of 58. This makes Gilbert great for seniors with allergies.
  • Unfortunately, the overall cost of living in Gilbert is 16.3 points over the national average of 100. However, health care costs here are cheaper than in many other American cities.
  • Gilbert has a low income tax rate compared to the national average. The state also offers tax breaks to seniors who get Social Security retirement benefits.
