What to Consider About Assisted Living in Peoria

The Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing of the Division of Public Health Licensing Services is responsible for regulating, monitoring and licensing Assisted Living facilities in Arizona. It investigates license applicants to determine their legal, moral and financial suitability to hold a license. The bureau oversees license holders through unannounced inspections of their facilities and reviewing feedback from residents.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Peoria

  • One of the biggest draws for seniors in Peoria is the climate. With temperatures ranging from a cool 43 degrees in January to 104 in July and precipitation at only around 32 days annually, the dry heat is helpful to people with weaker lung capacity. The city also gets almost 300 sunny days every year, so it isn’t often that seniors experience poor weather.
  • According to Sperling’s Best Places, Peoria has a lower-than-average health cost index of 101.6. This is due to the city having slightly longer commute times and fewer physicians than normal for its population size. However, the air quality is better than average and the city score’s highly for its endeavors to improve the local environment and support of the EPA’s Superfund program.
  • The average cost of living in Peoria is higher than normal for Arizona and the United States. However, housing and transportation costs appear to be the primary reasons, with the former unlikely to impact seniors in assisted living too much. Health care costs are below the state and national averages, which is more likely to benefit older residents in and out of residential care facilities.
  • Dial-a-Ride is an ADA-friendly shared-ride service provided by the City of Peoria. It offers low-cost transportation for seniors traveling within the city limits, with fares at $1.50 per one-way trip, dropping to $1 for ADA-certified passengers. The curb-to-curb service operates Mondays to Fridays, from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m.  
  • Crime rates are below average in Peoria. The chance of being a victim of a violent crime is 1 in 405, while the state figure is 1 in 199. For property crime, the statistics are 1 in 71 in Peoria and 1 in 43 for Arizona. 
  • Peoria’s seniors can easily access medical facilities such as Curahealth Phoenix Northwest, which specializes in respiratory system diseases, wound care and nutrition. Abrazo Arrowhead Hospital has an ER department, treats stroke victims and performs general surgeries. Due to Peoria’s proximity to Phoenix, seniors are also only 20 minutes from some of the country’s most highly-regarded hospitals.

Paying for Assisted Living in Peoria

Figures published in the 2021 Genworth Cost of Care Survey show Peoria to be one of the most affordable cities in Arizona for Assisted Living. The median charge of $3,975 per month is below the state’s typical fee of $4,000 and the $4,500 paid by the average American.
