What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fulton

Fulton is a city of about 4,000 residents, including about 800 people age 65 and over, in the northeastern region of Mississippi. Here, seniors are served by the Three Rivers Area Agency on Aging, an organization that provides information and referrals, nutrition programs and ombudsman services.

In the Fulton area, the Mississippi Department of Health, Health Facilities Licensure and Certification licenses two types of assisted living facilities, which are officially called personal care homes. These facilities are divided into two categories based on the mental health needs and ambulatory abilities of their residents. Fulton is home to two assisted living facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fulton

  • The Fulton area has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Red Bay.
  • In Fulton, all types of retirement income are exempt from state income tax, and the state has a moderate sales tax rate. Mississippi's retiree-friendly tax laws may benefits seniors seeking local assisted living options. 
  • Fulton's air quality is rated 57 points out of 100, which is on par with the U.S. average. This is associated with an average risk of respiratory illnesses and cancer and doesn't pose undue risks for seniors who have conditions like COPD or heart disease. 
  • Fulton's overall cost of living is about 25% below the national average and 10% below the statewide average. This is mainly due to the low cost of housing, which is about 50% lower than the national average, and utilities, which are about 30% lower. As a result, local assisted living expenses may be relatively affordable. 
  • While property crime is a little more common here than in the average U.S. city, with a rate of 43.5 on a 100-point scale versus the national average of 35.4, Fulton's violent crime rate is very low at 7.6. This may provide peace of mind for seniors in assisted living here.
  • Fulton's summers are hot with highs around 90 degrees and winters are cool with lows around 30 degrees. The city only receives about an inch of snowfall per year, which may appeal to seniors who prefer to do their own driving.
