What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mesa

The Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing of the Division of Public Health Licensing Services regulates, monitors and licenses assisted living facilities throughout Arizona. The Bureau only licenses facilities that comply with all health and safety standards relevant to the number of residents. Facilities must also have a fire safety certificate, appropriate insurance and at least the minimum staff-to-resident ratio.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mesa

  • Mesa’s desert climate means pleasant winters, with temperatures that average 41 degrees Fahrenheit, and hot summers where the dial is frequently around 105 degrees Fahrenheit, so seniors need to make sure they stay hydrated. However, for most of the year, the climate is ideal for outdoor living, and with only 10 inches of rain, Mesa’s climate ensures seniors don’t often face humid heat.
  • The city’s environment is better than many. Although air quality is below average, the water quality is better than most, and Mesa’s commitment to the EPA’s Superfund project sees it continue to revitalize contaminated land. Mesa also has shorter commute times than the majority of cities across the country.
  • The average cost of living index is 104.2, which is higher than the state and national indices, although the difference isn’t great. The index takes into account many costs, not all of which apply to seniors in assisted living, such as housing. When comparing the costs that do apply, such as health care, Mesa’s cost index is below the state and national averages.
  • Violent crime and property crime statistics in Mesa are slightly below the U.S. averages, which themselves are lower than Arizona’s averages. So, statistically, a resident of Mesa is less likely to be a victim of crime than their peers across the state and the country. 
  • Mesa’s proximity to Phoenix allows its seniors to choose from a large number of highly regarded hospitals, in addition to those within the city. The Banner Baywood Medical Center is considered among the top 10 in the state, while the Chandler Regional Medical Center is also a high performer. Only 30 minutes away, the Mayo Clinic-Phoenix is nationally recognized for many treatments, including cancer care and heart surgery. 
  • RideChoice is an ADA paratransit service managed by Valley Metro to help Mesa residents aged 65 and older get around the East Valley with as little fuss as possible. Seniors don’t need to book ahead for their trips. Fares are $3 for the first 8 miles and $2 for every subsequent mile.

Paying for Assisted Living in Mesa

The average fee for an assisted living placement in Mesa is $3,975 per month. This is slightly more affordable than the state median of $4,000 and considerably below the national average of $4,500. Consequently, seniors relocating from elsewhere in Arizona may not notice much difference, but some seniors coming from other states could make significant savings.

The Cost of Assisted Living in Nearby Cities

The nearest cities to Mesa are usually more expensive, such as Tucson, where costs average $4,050, and Prescott Valley, at $4,500. However, Yuma is a more affordable $3,800, which is the lowest average fee in the state.

The Cost of Other Types of Senior Care

Adult day care is the most affordable, at $2,167. However, as with the home care services, seniors will need to factor home maintenance costs into their calculations. Nursing homes offer the highest levels of care, which is reflected in their fees of approximately $6,418 for a semiprivate room and $7,908 for a private one.
