What to Consider About Assisted Living in Ridgeland

The Mississippi State Department of Health licenses assisted living facilities in Ridgeland and promotes a high standard of care through minimum standards related to housing, staffing and care planning. The department also investigates complaints filed against facilities statewide, which individuals can submit by calling (800) 227-7308.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Ridgeland

  • In Ridgeland, the cost of living exceeds the state norm by about 10 percentage points, but it’s 12% lower than the national average, which may make it a budget-friendly option for seniors relocating to this city from outside the state. Housing costs are quite a bit higher here than in other Mississippi cities, but seniors may be able to reduce living expenses by choosing assisted living.
  • Ridgeland rates 41.5 on a 100-point index for property crime, compared to a national average of 35.4. While this indicates that historically, this type of crime occurs more often here than in the typical U.S. city, it’s important to note that the rate has been dropping consistently for the past two decades. Violent crime is comparatively rare with a score of 17.3 versus 22.7 nationally, which may provide peace of mind for prospective assisted living residents. 
  • Winters in Ridgeland are comfortable with daytime temperatures in the 50s and nighttime lows in the mid-30s, and measurable snowfall is very rare. The fall and spring months are the most comfortable with temperatures in the 60s and 70s, and summers are warm and humid with highs in the 90s. Many assisted living facilities have swimming pools, indoor recreational amenities and individual climate controls in residents’ rooms to support year-round comfort.
  • There are no hospitals in Ridgeland proper, but several hospitals are located in nearby Jackson, including Mississippi Baptist Medical Center and University of Mississippi Medical Center. Locally, the number of doctors per capita is very high at 342 compared to the national norm of 210, which may result in short wait times to see primary care providers and specialists.
  • In Mississippi, seniors don’t pay state income taxes on any type of retirement income, making this one of the more favorable states in the nation for seniors. This may leave more money in the bank for assisted living expenses in Ridgeland.
