What to Consider About Assisted Living in Orem

Assisted living facilities in Utah are licensed by the Division of Health and Human Services' Office of Licensing department. The department also conducts regular inspections, both scheduled and unannounced, to ensure that long-term care facilities comply with all rules and regulations. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Orem

  • Orem provides excellent medical care through the University of Utah Hospital, with the main hospital located in nearby Salt Lake City. This award-winning hospital received five stars from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) as a top-ranking Medicare facility. Along with excellent care options, Orem is a designated healthy city, providing a cleaner environment than 100% of all cities in Utah. 
  • Orem’s cost of living index is 110.5 based on the U.S. scale of 100. However, groceries are lower than the national norm with an index of 94.5, and utilities cost less at 95. Housing costs in Orem have a much higher index of 148.2, which could make assisted living communities a more viable option for seniors.
  • Although winter in Orem may bring upwards of 42 inches of snow annually, the 223 sunny days each year help chase away the winter’s chill. Summers in Orem are pleasant, with very little rain and temperatures range from the mid-70s to the upper 90s. In fact, Orem receives a scant average of 18 inches of rain annually, while the U.S. sees an average of 38 inches.
  • Orem has a property crime ranking of 33.9 (100 being the highest), which is lower than Utah's 40.7 and the U.S. at 35.4. In terms of violent crime, Orem's ranking is 9.5, while Utah's is 15.8 overall, and the U.S. averages 22.7. Because of these lower crime rates, Orem is considered a safer place to live than other cities in Utah.
  • Although Social Security income and withdrawals from retirement accounts are fully taxed, public and private pension income is only partially taxed, making Utah a moderately tax-friendly state for retirees. Utah residents enjoy a low income tax rate of 4.85 percent to offset retirement funds being taxed.
