What to Consider About Assisted Living in Spanish Fork

The Bureau of Health Facility Licensing, a division of the Utah Department of Health, is responsible for monitoring, regulating and licensing assisted living facilities in the state. Its work includes conducting announced inspections to ensure facilities continue to honor the conditions in their licenses. It also uses data acquired from the Long-Term Care Ombudsman when considering re-licensing facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Spanish Fork

  • According to Sperling’s Best Places, the average cost of living index for Spanish Fork is 109.4, which is above the national average but not as high as Utah’s average. Health costs are a little below the state average, which should benefit seniors in assisted living, as will the city’s below-average transportation costs. 
  • Spanish Fork’s residents experience much less crime than their peers across the state and the country. The chances of being a victim of property crime are 1 in 123, while the state average, which is similar to the national average, is 1 in 46. Violent crime figures are lower still, with the chances of being a victim in Spanish Fork at 1 in 5,845, a significantly better figure than the state average of 1 in 424 (which itself is almost half the national average). 
  • Summer and winter temperature differences are significant, with January typically around 21 degrees and July, 93 degrees. Snowfall is almost double the national average at 51 inches, so seniors need to be extra careful in colder months. However, rainfall is below average but high enough to freshen the air and enrich the landscape. Residents can also enjoy 21 more sunny days than the national average of 205.
  • Spanish Fork Hospital is the primary medical facility in the city. There are also several clinics and Spanish Fork is only minutes from additional health care centers in Provo, including the high-performing Utah Valley Hospital, ranked #4 in the state by U.S. News & World Report. There are 12 doctors in the city who accept Medicare insurance, with most working in family medicine. 
  • Water quality in Spanish Fork is a little below the national average of 55/100, but perfectly safe and fresh. The city’s seniors enjoy significantly better air than their peers across the country, scoring 79/100, which is 21 points above the national average. The air is particularly beneficial to seniors with respiratory conditions.
