Henderson is Nevada’s second-largest city and home to an estimated 322,000 inhabitants, with seniors making up 20.3% of that total. Older adults can benefit from a range of factors, including a very warm climate, the city’s numerous parks, walking trails and health care that’s more affordable than the U.S. average. Henderson is also home to many agencies and assisted living communities that offer services and support to seniors when their daily needs change.

Assisted living is the best choice for seniors who can’t live independently but don’t need the around-the-clock care available in nursing homes. This care level is the ideal option for those who need assistance with the activities of daily living such as grooming, meal preparation and transportation. Assisted living care costs depend on the amenities available at a facility and its location, but Henderson seniors pay an average of $3,650 per month for care services.

This is a guide to assist older adults in learning more about assisted living care costs and how these costs compare with one another and with costs in other cities in the region. It also offers an overview of assisted living payment options and a resource guide of agencies and programs available to those in assisted living.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Henderson

The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services oversees assisted living facilities in Henderson and the rest of the state. It also provides important updates on state rules for long-term care facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Henderson

  • While Henderson seniors don’t pay state income taxes, the sales tax is 8.3%, compared to the U.S. average of 7.3%. Property taxes are 2.61% of total income and 0.72% of property value, compared to the national average of 2.79% of total income and 1.09% of property value.
  • In a cost-of-living comparison based on a 100-point index, Henderson’s cost of living is 117,  indicating its living costs are 17% higher than those of the average U.S. city. It’s also higher than the state score of 92.4, meaning Henderson is one of the costlier places to live in Nevada, which needs to be taken into account by seniors wishing to conserve their retirement income.
  • Helping Hands of Vegas Valley provides senior transportation for those 60 years and over. It focuses on seniors on their own, chronically ill or homebound and struggling to use conventional transportation services. Services are offered at no cost to older adults, and rides to a range of destinations are provided, including medical appointments, visits to the grocery store and various errands.
  • Henderson has very poor air quality, which may be a concern for those with asthma and COPD. However, assisted living facilities can protect residents from the effects of ozone and particle pollution by focusing on indoor activities. The city also has very poor water quality and a high population density.
  • The region is desert-like, with warm to hot weather across the year and mild winters that allow seniors to spend time outdoors and participate in many recreational activities. The city also has ideal rainfall levels as well as mean temperatures.

Paying for Assisted Living in Henderson

Assisted living facilities in Henderson have an average assisted living cost of $3,650 per month, but costs can vary according to the location, amenities and services offered.
