    Assisted living facilities in Yuma, AZ, come under the purview of the Arizona Department of Health Services, and they are divided further into supervisory care services, personal care services and direct care services. Residents receive help with the activities of daily living and enjoy social opportunities in spacious common areas.

    • The air quality index in Yuma is 15 percent better than the rest of the country, and pollution is 22 percent above the national average. The American Lung Association give Yuma a C for particle pollutants that contribute to lung cancer, so seniors with respiratory illnesses may want to consider assisted living facilities in another area.

    • The overall crime rate in Yuma is 76 percent higher above the national average, and Yuma is safer than just 8 percent of metro areas in the country. This is something seniors should consider if they plan to enjoy outings with friends.
