What to Consider About Assisted Living in Prescott Valley

In Prescott Valley, assisted living facilities are officially called residential facilities, and they’re licensed through the Arizona Department of Health Services. This department enforces standards for care planning, staff training and building requirements. It also provides an online complaint form where seniors and assisted living facility visitors and staff can submit concerns related to cleanliness or quality of care. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Prescott Valley

  • Overall, living costs in Prescott Valley trend a little higher than state and national averages, which may be a consideration for older adults with limited resources. Home costs are relatively high, but seniors may be able to save on housing expenses by opting for assisted living.
  • The property crime rate in Prescott Valley is consistent with national norms, but violent crime is rare. According to FBI data, occurrences of both levels of crime have been trending downward, and in recent years, the number of crimes per capita has been well below national averages. This may provide peace of mind to seniors and families considering long-term care in this city.
  • Prescott Valley’s warm, dry weather may be beneficial to older adults with conditions such as asthma and arthritis. Daytime temperatures in the summer months are in the upper 80s, and in the winter months, highs are in the low 50s.
  • There are four hospitals within driving distance of Prescott Valley, including Yavapai Regional Medical Center East within the city proper. This 72-bed not-for-profit hospital features a range of specializations and resources for patients, as well as the state-of-the-art Advanced Wound Care Center.
  • The YavaLine Regional Transit System provides safe, reliable public transportation for Prescott Valley residents, which can help supplement transportation services available through assisted living facilities. The service is available on weekdays from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m., and riders can arrange their pick-up and drop-off locations through the system’s mobile app.
  • All types of retirement income, except for Social Security, are subject to state income taxation. While this may affect how much seniors can put toward their long-term care costs, state programs, such as Medicaid, can help with assisted living expenses.
  • The air quality in Prescott Valley is decent, with the American Lung Association giving the region a B for ozone pollution. Seniors who are sensitive to smog may want to remain inside on high-ozone days, but in general, the city supports an outdoor-centered lifestyle.
