What to Consider About Assisted Living in Mccomb

Located about 15 miles north of the Mississippi-Louisiana border, McComb is perhaps best known as the birthplace of legendary singer Bo Diddley. The small city is currently home to about 13,050 people, and one in seven of them is 65 years or older. 

The city has three assisted living facilities that can help these seniors as they age. Like other facilities in the Magnolia State, they’re licensed as Assisted Living Personal Care Homes by the Mississippi State Department of Health.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Mccomb

  • The McComb area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Southwest Mississippi Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • The American Lung Association ranks cities across the country based on their air quality. For two types of air pollution, ozone and 24-hour particle pollution, the Jackson-Vicksburg-Brookhaven area ties for cleanest in the country. The region’s clean air may encourage seniors to retire in McComb. 
  • Each year, McComb residents enjoy about 218 days of sunshine; this is nearly two weeks more than the national average. During the city’s mild winters there's no snow at all, so seniors can get outside and enjoy a game of golf or pickleball. Summers are quite hot — temperatures are above 90° for an average of almost 70 days a year — and this factor may limit seniors’ outdoor pursuits.
  • At 1,700 acres, Percy Quin State Park offers plenty of opportunities for bird watchers and wildlife viewers to enjoy the sights. The park also has a 490-acre lake where active seniors can fish, swim or even jet ski. History buffs may be interested in the city’s two museums, the McComb Railroad Museum and the Black History Gallery.
  • Mississippi ranked fourth on Kiplinger’s list of the most tax-friendly states for retirees. Income from seniors' pensions as well as withdrawals from 401(k)s and IRAs are completely exempt from the state’s income tax. Since these generous tax policies leave more money in seniors' pockets, it could be easier for McComb residents to pay for assisted living.
  • Seniors in McComb may spend less on healthcare, housing, transportation and other categories. The city’s overall cost of living is 20.7% below the national average, which can help seniors on a fixed income stretch their resources.
