What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sandy

All of Sandy’s assisted living communities are licensed at the state level by the Department of Health, Division of Family Health and Preparedness. This executive agency oversees the operation of long-term residential care communities across the state and publishes guidelines for senior care. Agents of the division also conduct site visits to monitor compliance with the law and best practices for senior living.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sandy

  • Sandy’s climate is very warm and dry for most of the year. The city gets less than 16 inches of rain annually, and exceptional amounts of sunlight keep the city warm through the winter and give the area average daily highs of 95 degrees in the summer months.
  • The cost of living in Sandy is higher than the U.S. average. Prices for common goods and services in the area are roughly 25% above the national average, with healthcare expenses between 1% and 2% above the nationwide median. Home energy costs are somewhat below average in Sandy; the typical utility bill in the city is 5% lower than the national average.
  • Sandy’s crime rates are low and stable. In most categories of crime, and in every category of violent crime, Sandy is an exceptionally safe place for seniors to live. Theft is the only category of crime where Sandy’s numbers are higher than the national average, although the difference is small.
  • The state of Utah taxes Social Security benefits, along with other types of retirement income, at the flat 4.95% rate. However, seniors may get a partial break from this tax since state law includes several exemptions for certain types of retirement income and property ownership arrangements.
  • Seniors in Sandy are exceptionally well served by bus and light rail service. The UTA bus system runs more than 100 regular routes through the area, along with a high-capacity light rail system. A daily round of commuter trains, known as FrontRunner, carry residents to the nearby communities of Ogden and Provo, with a few stops at various communities in between.
  • Seniors in Sandy are surrounded by the breathtaking natural beauty of the Utah landscape. One trail through Bell’s Canyon runs from a gently tumbling waterfall to a small pedestrian bridge. Assistance on the trail is available for seniors with limited mobility. Back in the city, seniors can take in a show at Hale Center Theatre or enjoy a ball game at Rio Tinto stadium.

Paying for Assisted Living in Sandy

The average cost of assisted living in Sandy is $3,700 per month, according to the Genworth 2020 Cost of Care Survey. This is $300 more than the Utah average of $3,400 and $600 lower than the national median of $4,300.
