What to Consider About Assisted Living in Carson City

Assisted living facilities in Nevada, officially known as residential facilities for groups, are licensed and regulated by the state’s Department of Health and Human Services, according to Nevada Administrative Code 449.156.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Carson City

  • The overall cost of living in Carson City is 9.8% higher than the national median but 0.8% lower than the average for the state of Nevada. Housing costs in the city are high, while utilities and transportation costs are low. Compared to nearby Reno and Lake Tahoe, Carson City is an affordable place to live. 
  • Since Nevada doesn’t levy a state income tax, seniors in Carson City can put more of their earnings toward long-term care and other expenses. The sales tax is 7.6%, which is about 1% higher than the national average. Seniors with homes may qualify for certain homestead exemptions, saving them more money. 
  • Carson City has a cold semi-arid climate, meaning the area gets low amounts of precipitation, with hot summers and cold winters. The average high temperature in July is around 91 degrees, and the average low in January is about 20 degrees. The city gets around 17 inches of snow per year, which is about 11 inches lower than the national average.
  • Carson City gets a passing grade for particle pollution, according to the American Lung Association. Unfortunately, the city gets an F for ozone pollution, as it has more days of high ozone levels than most parts of the United States. Between 2018 and 2020, there was an average of 3.7 high ozone days per year. Seniors can stay safe on high ozone days by remaining indoors in their assisted living facilities. 
  • The rate of violent crime in Carson City is about the same as the national average, while property crime rates are a bit higher. Seniors who are concerned about crime in the city can find assisted living communities with advanced security features, such as surveillance cameras, controlled access points, perimeter fences and round-the-clock guards.

In Carson City, seniors pay an average of $3,820 per month for assisted living. However, rates can vary, depending on the facility’s location, the amenities offered and the level of assistance required.
