What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mountain Home

The Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS), Division of Medical Services, Office of Long-Term Care is responsible for licensing and regulating assisted living facilities in Mountain Home and elsewhere in the state. Compliance with regulations is ensured through routine and unannounced inspections. The department provides a complaint resolution process for long-term care residents and their loved ones.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mountain Home

  • With a cost of living index of 75.1, Mountain Home is a highly affordable place to live relative to the U.S. average. This score is based on a 100-point system where 100 is the national average, considering factors such as housing options, utility bills and public transit.
  • When it comes to health care, Mountain Home offers excellent medical facilities and a high number of physicians per capita. With 239 physicians per 100,000 population, the city surpasses the national average of 210 per 100,000 people. Moreover, the cost of health care is over 14% cheaper than the average national cost. Residents have access to quality 24-hour medical facilities such as the Baxter Regional Medical Center.
  • Mountain Home enjoys a mild and pleasant climate all year round. Summers are hot and humid, while winters are cool with light snowfall. Precipitation is spread evenly throughout the year, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable living environment for retirees.
  • Mountain Home boasts a lower rate of violent crime compared to the national average. Its violent crime index of 11 is significantly lower than the national average of 22.7. However, the property crime rate in Mountain Home is 58.5 whereas the US average is 35.4. As a result, seniors living in Mountain Home may wish to consider safety precautions for their homes and belongings.
  • Arkansas is a tax-friendly place to live. Property taxes are among the lowest in the country, and the state does not tax Social Security retirement benefits, further contributing to Mountain Home's overall affordability.
