What to Consider About Assisted Living in Hernando

Nestled along the banks of the Mississippi River in DeSoto County is the small town of Hernando, Mississippi, considered part of the Memphis metro area. "Mississippi's Front Porch" combines a close-knit community vibe with access to big-city conveniences. Seventeen percent of Hernando's population of 15,000 are seniors over 62. To care for these residents, DeSoto County is home to 19 assisted living facilities.

The Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification office of the Mississippi State Department of Health is responsible for licensing and regulating assisted living facilities, of which there are two types: residential and assisted living care facilities. The primary difference between these two settings is that residential living communities may not admit or retain individuals who cannot ambulate independently. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Hernando

  • Hernando's weather is characterized by hot, humid summers and mild winters. July high temperatures average 91 degrees, and January lows are around 31. Hernando may be uncomfortable for seniors whose health conditions are aggravated by high temperatures.  
  • The cost of living in Hernando is 102.8, compared to the U.S. baseline of 100. Housing, health care and groceries all fall within 10 percent of the U.S. average of 100. 
  • Crime rates in the U.S. are measured from 1 to 100, 1 being the safest. Hernando's violent crime rate is 11.8 out of 100, while the U.S. average is 31.1. Property crime rates are also lower than the national average, at 32.4 versus 38.1. Seniors can enjoy living in a safer community. 
  • The Memphis Area Transit Authority offers fixed-route bus service around the greater Memphis area. Hernando residents have access to Delta Rides, which provides appointment-based ride services in DeSoto County and to Memphis. Seniors are eligible for reduced fares for these transit systems. 
  • The Hernando area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baptist Memorial Hospital DeSoto in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Hernando, as a suburb of Memphis, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
