What to Consider About Assisted Living in Taylorsville

Standards in assisted living communities in Utah are ultimately overseen by the Utah Department of Health, which has the authority to issue and revoke licenses. At a local level, maintaining and monitoring standards is carried out by the Adult & Aging Services division of the Utah Department of Human Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Taylorsville

  • The Rides for Wellness program is a free service provided for seniors in Salt Lake County who have no other means of transportation. It operates during normal working hours on weekdays and focuses exclusively on taking seniors to their medical appointments in buses equipped for wheelchair access. To be eligible, the adult must be 60 or over and be a Salt Lake County resident. There’s a suggested donation of $2 per trip.
  • According to Sperling’s Best Places, the cost of living in Taylorsville is above the national average. Using 100 as the typical figure, the city’s average is 109.4.

For example, the national median is four for violent crime, while in Taylorsville, that drops to 2.69. However, the property crime median stands at 27.92, compared to the national figure of 21. It’s worth noting that criminals tend to target specific areas, with some places in the city being more crime-free than others, particularly in the west and south.
  • Despite being within the metropolitan area, Taylorsville still has better quality air and water than the average American city. Information published by Sperling’s Best Places records Taylorsville as having a score of 68 out of 100 for water quality, compared to the national average of 55.
