    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Corinth

    Mississippi’s Gateway City, Corinth, lies in the northeast corner of the state. Seniors enjoy small-town charm and hospitality with easy access to the big-city amenities in nearby Memphis, Nashville and Birmingham. Abundant recreational opportunities are found 20 minutes away at Pickwick Lake, with over 90 miles of shoreline.

    Corinth is home to a sizeable senior population, with nearly 19% of the city’s 14,500 residents aged 65 and older. For those who require 24-hour assistance while enjoying as independent a lifestyle as possible, Corinth offers two personal care homes. The Mississippi Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification oversees such facilities in the state.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Corinth

    • Older adults who don’t like wet weather or hot summers should consider Corinth’s climate. The city receives 57 inches of rain, on average, per year, and summer is the wettest season, making for some humid days. Although it’s one of the coolest locations in Mississippi, Corinth has 52 days on average each year in which the temperature tops 90 degrees.
    • Cultural opportunities seniors enjoy in Corinth include performances by the Corinth Symphony Orchestra at the 900-seat Coliseum Civic Center. This architectural masterpiece is an acoustically perfect building that also hosts plays, musicals and concerts. Corinth Theatre-Arts entertains the community with six productions per season, including current Broadway hits.
    • Magnolia State seniors living in Corinth do not pay state income tax on Social Security benefits. Mississippi also exempts all qualified retirement income from taxes, including public and private pensions, individual retirement accounts and 401(k)s.
    • Seniors may be able to hold onto even more of their savings thanks to Corinth’s cost of living, which is 13% lower than the national average. While this is primarily due to transportation and housing costs, seniors in Corinth typically pay a bit less for utilities, health care and groceries as compared to the U.S. averages.
    • The Corinth area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Magnolia Regional Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Seniors should choose a personal care home in Corinth that’s well secured and constantly monitored since property crime is high in the city. Corinth scores 84.3 out of 100, more than double the U.S. average of 35.4.  Corinth's violent crime score of 20.3 is a bit lower than the national average of 22.7.
