    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Tucson

    A sprawling city that sees over 300 days of sunshine per year, Tucson, Arizona, draws many retirees to its warm, desert climate and affordable housing. In fact, the city is home to almost 62,000 seniors, some of whom may require assisted living care. To accommodate these seniors, there are 89 assisted living facilities located within the city limits. In Tucson, as in all of Arizona, assisted living facilities (ALFs) are licensed and governed by the state's Division of Public Health Licensing Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Tucson

    • Tucson holds membership in the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership  "has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages," according to AARP.
    • Arizona seniors are not taxed on social security benefits, although they are partially taxed on pensions and retirement savings account withdrawals are fully taxed. Tucson seniors may find that these tax benefits result in more money for their assisted living budgets.
    • The cost of living in Tucson is 99.4, slightly below the national average of 100. Healthcare also ranks lower than the average at 84, making the city an affordable place for seniors to live.
    • The air quality in Tucson is ranked at 49 on a scale where 100 represents the areas with the cleanest air, slightly below the U.S. average of 58. Seniors with respiratory conditions might find it difficult to breathe in the city.
    • Tucson has a warm, dry climate with temperatures reaching 100 degrees in the summer and dropping to 39 during the winter months. Seniors who do not enjoy extreme heat might not like living in Tucson.
    • Tucson has a high crime rate. On a scale where 100 represents the areas with the most crime, Tucson ranks 37.5 for violent crime and 83.2 for property crime, both significantly higher than the national averages of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively.

    • Who qualifies for assisted living?

      Seniors who are interested in entering an assisted living facility in Tucson need to be able to leave their beds and direct their own care. They will not be accepted for admission if they need 24/7 skilled nursing or if they need consistent nursing care but can’t hire a private nurse. However, those who need some help with activities of daily living and those who have mild or moderate dementia will be eligible in many cases.

    • Can Social Security pay for assisted living?

      Basic Social Security checks can be spent on anything the recipient deems necessary, so in that sense, yes. However, these basic funds will not cover the full amount of assisted living costs. In some cases, such as in the case of disability, seniors may be eligible for additional SSI funds or even for a state-funded supplement to Social Security. To understand your benefits, it’s best to explore the official Social Security website or reach out to your local Social Security office for more information.
