The 10 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Layton, UT for 2024

Layton is a fast-growing community of nearly 82,000 residents in the north-central region of Utah with two local hospitals, beautiful parks and unique museums. While less than a tenth of the population is aged 65 and over, the city is a good option for retirees seeking budget-friendly assisted living services.

Assisted living is a prime long-term care solution for seniors who are largely independent but need help with daily activities, such as housekeeping, meal preparation and bathing or dressing. This residential option features individualized care services from highly trained caregivers, daily social and recreational programming and three daily meals plus snacks. Many assisted living communities are pet-friendly and feature dog parks and walking paths, and some feature indoor and outdoor amenities, including arts and crafts studios, computer lounges and libraries. Layton is among the most affordable places in the nation for this level of care, with seniors paying $3,663 per month for services. This is in line with Utah’s norm of $3,500 but well below the national average of $4,500. 

This guide for assisted living in Layton highlights financial assistance options for qualified seniors. It also lists some resources that can help older adults navigate the system.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Layton

The Utah Department of Health and Human Services, Division of Licensing and Background Checks, licenses assisted living facilities in Layton. Through this department, individuals can find licensed assisted living facilities in their region and submit complaints regarding substandard care or conditions or critical incidents. To contact the agency, seniors can call the helpline during normal business hours at (801) 538-4242.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Layton

  • All types of retirement income, including Social Security benefits, are subject to the state’s 4.95% flat income tax rate. While this may put a dent into how much seniors can put toward assisted living expenses, a small credit is available to minimize the expenses. Seniors can access help with filing taxes through nonprofit organizations such as the Area Agency on Aging.
  • Two hospitals, including Layton Hospital and Holy Cross Hospital - Davis, are located in Layton proper and provide diverse medical and rehabilitative services. Health care costs come in slightly higher than national norms, and there are only about 124 doctors per capita, 40% below the national average. Assisted living communities in Layton support access to care with on-call physicians, pharmacists and registered nurses.
  • The air quality in Layton is poor, with the American Lung Association giving the region failing grades for ozone and 24-hour particle pollution. While this may be a consideration for those managing chronic cardiovascular or respiratory conditions, many assisted living facilities support residents’ safety and comfort with air purification systems and indoor recreational options. 
  • The cost of living in Layton is consistent with Utah's norm but about 12% higher than the national average. Housing costs are particularly high, which may make assisted living a financially viable alternative to maintaining ownership of a house, but grocery, transportation and utility costs trend below national norms.
  • The property crime rate in Layton is comparable to the national average, rating 33.7 on a 100-point crime index, compared to the national norm of 35.4. However, the city rates 9.3 for violent crime, which is lower than the nationwide score of 22.7. This may appeal to active seniors seeking local long-term care options.
  • Year-round temperatures in Layton tend to be extreme with very cold winters and very warm summers. Nighttime temperatures in the winter are as low as 20 degrees on average, and the city gets 43 inches of snow annually. Summers are very warm with highs in the 90s, although days with noticeable humidity are uncommon. Assisted living facilities help residents stay comfortable with measures such as individual climate controls.

Financial Assistance for Assisted Living in Layton

Low-income seniors in Layton interested in assisted living may be eligible for financial help courtesy of two Medicaid-affiliated initiatives: the Utah Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) Waiver and the New Choices Waiver. Both programs support seniors’ freedom of choice, but while the HCBS Waiver mostly serves seniors launching their long-term care search for the first time, the New Choices Waiver helps those already in institutionalized care transition back home or locate appropriate assisted living placement.
