    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Cody

    Cody, Wyoming, sits in the northwestern part of the state amid a canyon and dry, flat territory near the entrance to Yellowstone National Park. The city honors its Wild West heritage of ranchers, pioneers and cowboys, such as Buffalo Bill Cody. The town's population of almost 10,000 people includes 7.5 percent aged 65 and older, and seniors in the town of Cody are served by two assisted living facilities. In Cody, and elsewhere in the state, assisted living facilities, are regulated by the Wyoming Department of Health. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Cody

    • Cody has its fair share of sunshine, with 213 sunny days each year as compared to the U.S. average of 205. Combined with the very warm summer days, the city is great for seasonal outdoor activities. Seniors may not appreciate the heavy snowfalls each winter, though, due to mobility concerns.
    • The cost of living in Cody is 10 percent higher than the national average, which may be a cause of concern for some seniors. Groceries, healthcare, transportation and housing are higher than normal, but utilities come in under the average. 
    • Seniors can benefit from lower tax rates in the city of Cody. There is no Income tax rate and the sales tax rate is only 4.0 percent, compared to the national rate of 6.0 percent. 
    • The city of Cody doesn't have a public transportation authority but there is a transit system that serves seniors available through the Cody Senior Center. The transit operates Monday through Friday with a half-price rate of one dollar each way for seniors. 
    • The Cody Senior Center operates as part of the Cody Council on Aging and provides life-enriching activities for people over the age of 60. Some of the center's activities for seniors include exercise classes, bingo, crafts, card games and pool.
    • The city of Cody is served by a premier medical center, Cody Regional Health, in the event of illness or emergency.
