What to Consider About Assisted Living in Farmington

Farmington was settled by a Mormon pioneer family back in 1847, and it wasn’t long before more settlers arrived. The city’s motto, “Historic Beginnings,” is inspired by these early pioneers. In the present day, the city is home to approximately 24,500 people. Seniors make up a relatively small portion of the population at just 8.6%.

If Farmington’s seniors require assistance with daily activities, such as eating or grooming, they can turn to the 16 assisted living facilities in the area. Two of these facilities are located within city limits. A division of the Utah Department of Health licenses and inspects these facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Farmington

  • There’s plenty to do in this city. Active seniors may want to explore the 146.49 miles of trails located within Farmington. They can also visit the famous Lagoon Amusement Park, which has been in operation since 1886. Other local attractions include the Lagoon Pioneer Village, which is a replica of a frontier community, and the Charles W. Penrose Cabin Museum.
  • The Farmington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Farmington Health Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Farmington’s year-round climate is more comfortable than the nationwide average, due in part to the 230 sunny days it receives each year. During the winter, lows only dip into the 20s, while in the summer, highs creep into the 90s. Seniors may relocate to Farmington to enjoy this warm weather.
  • Utah is one of the few states in the country that taxes seniors’ Social Security income. However, some seniors may qualify for an income tax credit to offset this cost. For all types of income, including pensions and retirement plans, the flat tax rate is 4.95%.
  • There are multiple public transit options available in Farmington. The FrontRunner rail service runs between Provo and Ogden, with a stop in Farmington. Seniors receive half-price train fares. The Utah Transit Authority also operates a curb-to-curb paratransit service that can help seniors with disabilities get around the city.
  • Farmington can be an expensive place to live. It’s overall cost of living is 30.9% above the national average. Housing plays the biggest role, since it costs more than twice as much as the U.S. norm. However, there are many potential savings to be had in Farmington. Grocery costs are 9% lower than average, and utility costs are 7.9% lower.
