What to Consider About Assisted Living in Oxford

Active seniors find much to appreciate in Oxford, Mississippi, which enjoys a reputation as the Cultural Mecca of the South for its thriving creative community as well as being a Certified Retirement City. Oxford earned this designation after an intensive three-month-long screening process that found the city offers all of the features most sought by retirees.

Adults aged 65 and over make up approximately 11.4% of Oxford’s population of about 25,000. To support these senior residents when they need help with daily activities but wish to live as independently as possible, Oxford provides three personal care homes. Mississippi’s Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification regulates all such assisted living facilities in Oxford and throughout the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Oxford

  • Seniors who don’t enjoy wet weather may wish to consider that Oxford receives an average annual rainfall of 59 inches. July and August can be uncomfortably warm, with the high in August averaging 92 degrees. This makes Oxford warmer than most places in Mississippi.
  • Oxford seniors enjoy a favorable income tax environment, with Mississippi holding the No. 4 spot on the 2018 Kiplinger list of the 10 most tax-friendly states for retirees. Seniors are not taxed on Social Security benefits or income from IRAs, 401(k) plans, and public and private pensions.
  • Seniors may find it hard to be bored in Oxford thanks to the packed calendar of annual festivals and events. The city boasts a vibrant arts and music scene that includes a comedy troupe, a professional dance company, the Lafayette-Oxford-University Symphony Orchestra and the University of Mississippi Choirs.
  • The Oxford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors living in Oxford who don’t drive are eligible for a free transportation service provided by the City of Oxford and Lafayette County. The 5310 Elderly & Disabled Transportation program provides door-to-door rides to doctor’s appointments, grocery stores and other essential errands.
  • Oxford’s violent crime score of 13.6 is significantly lower than the U.S. average of 22.7, which may put seniors and their families at ease. Oxford’s property crime rate of 38 is slightly higher than the national average of 35.4.
