What to Consider About Assisted Living in Searcy

Searcy-area assisted living facilities are overseen by the Office of Community Services, a division of the Arkansas Department of Human Services. The office is responsible for licensing assisted living facilities throughout the state. It conducts regular and unannounced inspections to ensure facilities comply with state rules and regulations.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Searcy

  • Searcy’s mild winters are ideal for active seniors. The city gets an average of two inches of snow per year, but with average winter high temperatures in the 50s, it’s rare for snow to remain on the ground. Seniors may prefer indoor activities during the summer, when temperatures frequently top 90 degrees.
  • Arkansas is one of the 10 most affordable states in the nation, and Searcy’s cost of living is even lower than the state norm. Compared to the state as a whole, Searcy offers 2.5% lower healthcare costs and 18.5% lower transportation costs. These savings can help seniors afford a more comfortable retirement. 
  • In Searcy, both property and violent crimes occur at rates far higher than the state average. However, that doesn’t mean seniors have to feel unsafe during retirement. For seniors’ peace of mind, local assisted living facilities may offer 24-hour video surveillance and other security features.
  • Arkansas doesn’t tax seniors’ Social Security benefits or military pensions, and partial exemptions are available for other types of retirement income, including distributions from IRAs. These retiree-friendly tax policies help seniors keep more of their hard-earned money. However, the combined state and local sales tax is 8%, which may strain the finances of low-income seniors.
  • Like many small cities, Searcy has limited public transportation options. However, the White County Aging Program provides rides to doctors’ appointments and other essential destinations, such as pharmacies and grocery stores. Assisted living facilities may also offer transportation for their residents.
  • Searcy seniors will have no trouble staying busy during retirement. The city offers a thriving arts and culture scene, with music festivals, art galleries and dinner theaters. Seniors who want to enjoy the great outdoors can visit one of the city’s four beautiful parks or take a trout fishing tour on the Little Red River.
