What to Consider About Assisted Living in Taylorsville

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.
