    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Wickenburg

    Wickenburg, one of the oldest places in Arizona, celebrates its heritage as a Wild West town, even in its approach to aging. The one assisted living facility in Wickenburg centers its amenities around the Southwestern heritage, giving residents and others the chance to thrive in an authentic Western environment. Besides this assisted living community, there are 65 in Surprise to the southeast.

    Assisted living facilities provide residential options for people who want to live independently but may need housekeeping and personal services periodically. In Arizona, the Department of Health Services licenses and oversees these facilities. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Wickenburg

    • When Wickenburg seniors want to enjoy the arts, they head to Sun City West’s Del E. Webb’s Center for the Performing Arts, which offers world-class entertainment for the public. It also operates a dude ranch in the Wickenburg area for performing artists to develop new performances, and residents of the Wickenburg area can attend rehearsals as part of the outreach program. 
    • Anyone over 60 years old in Wickenburg can take the Freedom Express, a van service that operates in Wickenburg on a user fee basis. Residents can use private taxi services, shuttles or the transportation services available from the assisted living facility. 
    • Because Wickenburg's altitude is 2,057 feet and higher, it has cooler temperatures than Phoenix and receives more rain, which can come from monsoon storm deluges. Winter snowfall is rare, but it does happen. Summer high temperatures are in the low 100s and drop to the 60s and 70s during the winter. 
    • Wickenburg's cost of living stands at 118, higher than Arizona's at 112 and the United States overall at 100. Housing and transportation costs account for the higher index, while food costs are lower. 
    • The index for violent crime in Wickenburg is 15.1 compared to 31.1 for the United States as a whole. Property crimes occur more often, with an index of 36.1 compared to 38.1 for the nation.
