What to Consider About Assisted Living in Payson

The city of Payson forms part of the Provo-Orem metropolitan area in Utah. Home to a number of annual events such as the Scottish Festival, Golden Onion Days and the Salmon Supper, it’s an attractive location for seniors looking for a lively, historic neighborhood. There are three assisted living facilities within the city and 11 more nearby that provide residential options for seniors. The state licenses two types of ALFs, which differ primarily in the level of care they provide. These facilities are regulated by the state’s Bureau of Health Facility Licensing, Certification and Resident Assessment.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Payson

  • Utah implements a 5 percent flat income tax statewide that includes Social Security retirement benefits, pension income and income from retirement accounts. Although seniors are entitled to a small credit against these taxes, the net deductions can still leave less money at the end of the month.
  • The American Lung Association ranks the Salt-Lake-Provo-Orem metropolitan area as the 18th most polluted U.S. city in terms of ozone pollution, and the 8th worst for short-term particle pollution. As part of this metropolitan area, Payson may pose risks for senior residents with respiratory health issues.
  • Although Payson’s overall cost of living rates a 112 (on a scale with 100 representing the nationwide average), it is lower than the state’s overall average of 118 and the Provo-Orem metro area’s 119. This makes it a more affordable spot within the local area. The city’s grocery index shows a lower value of 91, keeping seniors’ daily supplies at more reasonable costs.
  • The city enjoys a generally comfortable year-round climate, rating a comfort index of 71, far better than the US average of 54. With annual snowfall at 59 inches, far above the national average of 26 inches, the winter months may keep seniors away from outdoor activities.
  • Payson has an array of community resources for seniors, including a Senior Citizens Center that accepts members for a minimal membership fee, which is waived for seniors 80 years old and above. The center serves as a recreation area, offering access to games, books, computers and art classes, and monthly birthday celebrations and outings provide social opportunities.
  • The Payson area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mountain View Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Paying for Assisted Living in Payson
