Nestled in the foothills of the Santa Catalina mountains is the city of Tucson, AZ. It's one of the larger cities in the state and offers many attractive reasons for seniors to relocate and retire into assisted living. Tucson is warm, with snow-free winters that may benefit seniors who have medical conditions that are alleviated by warmer weather. Year-round pleasant conditions mean that those who enjoy golfing can play one of Tucson's world-class courses at any time. 

A cost of living on par with the national average means Tucson may be more affordable than other areas of the country. Arizona doesn't tax Social Security income, which can further help seniors on a fixed income. Tucson is home to world-class hospitals, such as Banner University Medical Center, a comprehensive health care facility with specialist physicians and an emergency department with state-of-the-art equipment. 

The cost for assisted living in Tucson is higher than the rest of the state, however, at $4,65 compared to $3,750. Phoenix, by contrast, is slightly lower than the state's average, at $3,500 per month, although Flagstaff, Arizona's other large metro area, is higher than both, at $5,000 per month, according to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey 2019

We've made a list of the top 10 assisted living facilities in Tucson to help or your loved one narrow the search.
