    Dardanelle is located in Yell County, Arkansas, on the banks of the Arkansas River. This small town has a modest population of around 4,500 and is one of the oldest cities in the state. Seniors here can choose from one assisted living facility in town and four in the surrounding areas. The Arkansas Department of Human Services, DHS Division of Aging and Adult Services, Office of Long-Term Care is responsible for the regulation of these communities.

    • The weather in Dardanelle varies by season. Summers can get quite hot with average temperatures in July reaching 92 degrees. Winters are cold and wet with lows of 29 degrees in January. This may cause difficulties for seniors who do not do well with extreme weather variations. Snowfall is well below average at 3 inches per year, and the town gets rainfall of about 49 inches annually.
