What to Consider About Assisted Living in West Jordan

The Utah Department of Health & Human Services licenses assisted living facilities in West Jordan and promotes a high standard of care by enforcing rules related to housing, care planning and services. In addition to requiring facilities to complete a licensing process, it investigates complaints from the public and conducts regular on-site inspections.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in West Jordan

 

  • In Utah, retirement income is subject to the state income tax rate of 4.95%. This includes all forms of retirement income, including public pensions and Social Security benefits, which may impact how much money some seniors can put toward assisted living expenses in West Jordan. However, the state has a tax credit of up to $450 to reduce what seniors pay in taxes for pension income.
  • The overall cost of living in West Jordan is high compared to state and national norms, which may be a concern for prospective assisted living residents with budgetary constraints. On a 100-point index based on living costs nationwide, the city scores 121.3, which is several points over Utah’s score of 114.2. Fortunately, many assisted living facilities offer all-inclusive pricing, helping many residents plan for monthly expenses.
  • West Jordan scores 15.3 for violent crime and 44.9 for property crime on a 100-point crime index, compared to national scores of 22.7 and 35.4, respectively. These scores indicate that while property crime is more prevalent in West Jordan than in a typical U.S. community, violent crime is comparatively rare. This may make the city an attractive retirement destination for active seniors.
  • Like the rest of Utah, West Jordan has a semiarid climate with cold, snowy winters and warm summers. Year-round temperatures range from 23 to 92 degrees Fahrenheit, and the city gets about 230 sunny days annually, compared to the national norm of 205. Many assisted living facilities have indoor and outdoor activities throughout the year and are equipped with individually controlled thermostats in residents’ rooms for customized comfort.
  • Holy Cross Hospital - Jordan Valley, a 171-bed hospital, is located in West Jordan proper, giving assisted living residents convenient access to emergency, specialty and primary care services. The city has about 233 physicians per capita compared to 210 nationally, further enhancing access to medical support.
