What to Consider About Assisted Living in Prescott

Assisted living facilities and personal care homes in Prescott must comply with licensing requirements established by the Arizona Department of Health Services and Bureau of Residential Facilities Licensing. These requirements are designed to protect residents’ health and safety while setting a uniform standard of care for assisted living facilities across the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Prescott

  • Prescott is a prosperous mountain town that offers a rich array of attractions for retirees who enjoy leisure pursuits. The downtown area features art galleries, boutiques, cafes and several prestigious museums, and the surrounding area offers numerous opportunities for hiking, boating, golfing and outdoor recreation.
  • Retirees in the Chino Valley benefit from a dry, sunny climate. The area receives 72 more days of annual sunshine compared to the typical U.S. city. High elevation and mountainous surroundings keep summer highs around 90 degrees, and although winter lows regularly drop below freezing, the area receives just a foot of snowfall in an average winter.
  • Prescott offers retirees a high quality of life, but the city’s cost of living is about 16% higher than the national average. Housing costs account for the majority of the difference, while transportation is more affordable than average. Other services are similar to national benchmarks.
  • Crime rates in Prescott are similar to the national average based on the number of violent crimes and property-related offenses, such as burglary and auto theft. Fortunately, assisted living facilities provide 24-hour security and advanced safety features to minimize these concerns.
  • Limited access to health care is one of the area’s few downsides. However, local veterans are served by the Northern Arizona VA Health Care System, and the Yavapai Regional Medical Center has been ranked as high performing in the treatment of COPD by U.S. News and World Report.
  • Prescott was named one of the 26 Best Performing Small Cities by the Milken Institute, a think tank that produces livability rankings that have been used in numerous age-related indices. It was also named one of the nation’s happiest and healthiest cities by Time magazine.
