What to Consider About Assisted Living in Biloxi

The Mississippi State Department of Health licenses and regulates assisted living facilities through its Division of Health Facilities Licensing and Certification. This monitoring ensures that seniors receive the highest quality care in clean, well-staffed communities that are held responsible for the services they provide. Seniors can access an online directory to learn more about various communities.

The city's scores are also below average with regard to groceries, housing, utilities and transportation. This makes it easier for seniors to balance their budgets and pay for assisted living care.

The national average for water quality is 55, also out of 100, and Biloxi tops this at 60. These ratings may indicate a decreased risk of cancer and respiratory diseases for the city's residents.
  • Biloxi's economy is strong due to tourism and diversified employment. While incomes run lower than the national average, the city is experiencing job growth. Even though many seniors are no longer in the employment world, they can still benefit from a strong economy, which can keep prices down.
  • Merit Health Biloxi provides the city's residents with comprehensive medical care. The hospital offers primary care and emergency services along with surgery, stroke care, pain treatment, orthopedics and several other specialties.
