    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.
