What to Consider About Assisted Living in Yuma

The Arizona Department of Health Services oversees the Office of Assisted Living Licensing which monitors assisted living facilities in Yuma and across the state. The office licenses all assisted living facilities and ensures they follow state regulations by carrying out regular scheduled and surprise inspections. It operates an online complaint form and a hotline where seniors can report any issues.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Yuma

  • On a 100-point cost of living scale, Yuma scores 88.2, meaning that the cost of living in Yuma is relatively low compared to the rest of the country. The state of Arizona has an average score of 102.2, which shows that Yuma is also one of the cheapest places to live in the state.
  • Yuma has a high crime rate when compared to the national average. However, seniors living in assisted living facilities should rest assured that the majority of these communities offer 24/7 security systems and gated access for the safety of residents.
  • Arizona is moderately tax-friendly toward retirees. Social security income is not taxed. However, all withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed. Property taxes are low in the state, but sales taxes are high in comparison to the rest of the country. Seniors living in assisted living communities should be able to easily budget as their monthly costs are generally fixed. 
  • Yuma experiences very hot summers and mild winters. The city is dry as it only receives about 4 inches of rain per year, while the national average is 38 inches. The winters are the ideal time for seniors to explore all the parks and outdoor activities the city offers. Residents will need to budget for the additional costs of cooling their homes during the summer months when the average temperature is 107.9°.
  • Free transport is provided for seniors through the Western Arizona Council of Governments Area Agency on Aging, which works with local transport providers in the city and surrounding areas. Seniors aged 60 and over can register with the appropriate transport provider to receive free transport options.
