What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cleveland
Nestled in the Mississippi Delta, Cleveland is most well known as the home of the GRAMMY Museum Mississippi, an interactive museum dedicated to American music history. This southern city has about 11,500 residents. Almost 1,750 of these residents are seniors, and to support this large senior population, Cleveland has three assisted living facilities. The Mississippi State Department of Health regulates these facilities in Cleveland and throughout the state as assisted living personal care homes.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cleveland
- Seniors with limited retirement savings may be able to stretch their resources in Cleveland. The city’s cost of living is approximately 12% below the national average and 5% lower than the Mississippi norm. The most significant savings are in housing and transportation.
- Cleveland has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Bolivar County Community Action Agency, an organization that offers companionship, help with errands and other services to local seniors.
- Mississippi is one of the few states that taxes groceries, but seniors may find that its generous income tax policies make up for this. The Magnolia State doesn’t tax seniors’ retirement income. With such a low tax burden, it’s easier to budget for assisted living care.
- Seniors from northern states may appreciate Cleveland’s year-round warm weather. During the winter, average high temperatures are in the 50s, so seniors can spend plenty of time outdoors. However, some seniors may think the frequent 90-degree days in the summer are too hot.
- Cleveland is a relatively safe city, which may appeal to seniors who want a quiet retirement. At only 17.56 per 1,000 residents, the property crime rate is far below the state median of 27.34 per 1,000 residents. The rate of violent crime is low, too.
- Cleveland’s assisted living facilities may organize supervised outings to some of the city’s many interesting attractions. In addition to the GRAMMY Museum, the city is home to the Bologna Performing Arts Center and Wright Center Art Gallery. It’s also the site of the annual Crosstie Arts and Jazz Festival.
