What to Consider About Assisted Living in Layton
With its close proximity to the Salt Lake City metropolitan area and convenient access to shopping and outdoor activities, Layton offers residents plenty to see and do. For the approximate 6,300 seniors that call Layton home, that convenience also includes the opportunity to live in one of the 24 assisted living facilities in and around the city. As in the rest of Utah, those assisted living facilities, or ALFs, are overseen by the Utah Department of Health, which takes care of licensing and monitors ongoing operations.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Layton
- Seniors can expect to save on health costs, utilities and transportation in Layton, but the city’s cost of living still sits above the national average due mostly to soaring housing costs.
- Summers in Layton are sunny and hot, with July highs topping out at 91 degrees Fahrenheit, but winters see temperatures plummet to the low 20s and snow piles up quickly. For active seniors, these conditions could limit excursions, but others will appreciate the lack of rain and sub-zero temps.
- There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy arts and culture in Layton. From Free Friday Film Nights to concerts at the Ed Kenley Amphitheater, the city offers locals a chance to enjoy a wide range of regional and internationally acclaimed artists.

- The Layton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Intermountain Layton Hospital and Davis Hospital and Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Layton has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Davis County Health Department’s Senior Services, which offers information on long-term care, access to activities, health care information, and referrals, as well as at least two senior centers.
