What to Consider About Assisted Living in Payson

Often called "the heart of Arizona" Payson lies nearly in the geographical center of the state and is surrounded by the Tonto National Forest. This slow-paced city is home to four senior facilities and one in the nearby town of Globe. The Arizona Department of Health Services governs all Arizona assisted living facilities (ALFs) to provide seniors with supervisory care, personal care or directed care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Payson

  • Arizona seniors enjoy no tax on social security checks. This allows seniors on a tight budget to access higher-quality assisted living facilities than they might have access to elsewhere.

  • The cost of living in Payson is 4.10 percent higher than the national average, and slightly higher than the state average when it comes to healthcare. This impact the average cost of assisted living in the state as well as seniors' discretionary spending.

  • Payson has a crime rate that's close to the national average with a score of 38.7 for both violent and property crime, making it safer on average than the rest of the state, so residents can feel more secure when they venture out on day trips.

  • Payson experiences four unique seasons and is very different from the Phoenix-Metro area. While seniors may enjoy the sun and summer average of 91 degrees, Payson does receive 18 inches of snow per year, and an average low of 27 degrees.

  • Seniors with a respiratory illness might be adversely affected in Payson. It is a high desert area located in Gila County, which received an F grade from the American Lung Association.

  • The Payson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Biltmore Cardiology, and Banner Payson Medical Center in the event of medical emergencies or illness experienced by residents in assisted living facilities.
