Cost of assisted living in Arizona

The median monthly cost of assisted living in Arizona is $4,406, which is less expensive than the national median monthly cost of assisted living ($4,807), according to A Place for Mom’s internal data from its brand partners. For budget-conscious Arizonans, this is a respective savings of $401 a month compared to the national median.

It’s a good idea to look at median costs instead of average costs because they are not normally influenced by extreme values, such as luxury communities or ultra-budget communities. In Arizona, the 10th percentile monthly cost is only $2,995, while the 90th percentile monthly cost is $6,812.

The cost of assisted living varies from community to community. However, pricing generally takes into account the level of care required by a resident in addition to the community’s location, floor plans, services, and amenities. In Arizona, communities located in major metros tend to be more expensive than those in smaller cities and towns. While these costs may feel expensive, some residents may qualify for Medicaid or Medicare. These programs can cover some costs associated with senior living.

Paying for assisted living in Arizona

It’s important to plan ahead to pay for assisted living. Your loved one may be able to pay for assisted living through a combination of private and public pay options. In the section below, you’ll find a variety of options that can be used to cover assisted living costs in Arizona. To learn more about payment resources, visit our complete guide to paying for long-term care.

Assisted living requirements and regulations in Arizona

In Arizona, the Arizona Department of Health Services (ADHS) provides licensure and oversight for assisted living facilities. Generally, facilities have to meet state requirements to receive initial licensing, then renew their license periodically. ADHS conducts inspections of assisted living facilities and makes inspection records available to the public.

Caregivers in Arizona’s assisted living communities must also meet specific requirements through ADHS’s Article 8 regulations. Typically, to work in an assisted living community, a caregiver must pass a state-approved training program, must complete first-aid and CPR training, and must be up to date on tuberculosis immunizations.

If you’re interested in learning more about the qualifications of caregivers, ask prospective communities about their training protocols, staff expertise, and staff certifications as these may vary beyond state minimums.

ADHS’s Article 8 regulations outline the rights of residents of assisted living communities in Arizona. These rights, as outlined in Article 8, include but are not limited to the following:

  • A resident is treated with dignity, respect, and consideration.
  • A resident has the right to not be discriminated against based on race, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, marital status,age, disability, or diagnosis.
  • A resident has a right to be informed of the rates and charges of services before the services are initiated.
  • A resident has a right to receive assisted living services that support and respect that person’s individuality, choices, strengths, and abilities.
  • A resident must be informed of a change in rates or charges in advance under most circumstances.
  • A resident has a right to participate in or have a representative of their choice participate in the development of the resident’s service plan.

State licensing in Arizona

We developed a system to rate each state on how easy — or difficult — it is to find important assisted living records and reports, and we compiled tips to help you in your search.

States with the most transparent records allow you to look up important information about each assisted living facility online, including inspections, complaints, survey results, violations, capacity, and whether the facility accepts Medicaid.

Access to Arizona assisted living records: High

Public access to assisted living records and reports for the state of Arizona is high. Here are some key findings that informed this rating:

  • Arizona’s state website contains detailed inspections data but slipped slightly in our rankings because information about communities is limited. (For example, community capacity is not available.) Additionally, information about communities is not updated frequently.
  • Arizona has largely transparent assisted living records but dropped to the second quartile of states in our ratings.

How to look up Arizona assisted living licenses and records

  • Visit Arizona Department of Health Service’s Assisted Living Provider Search.
  • Use the community’s name or location to narrow your search.
  • From the results page, click “select” next to a community’s name to access inspections reports and other background information.
  • The facilities report page lists dates of inspections or penalties against the community. Details can be found by clicking “select” next to the date of the inspection or enforcement action.

How we arrived at our Arizona rating

We developed a standard methodology for state data collection and evaluation, and we based our rating primarily on the objective, state-specific accessibility criteria outlined in these questions:

  1. Are licensed assisted living communities listed online in any form? Yes
  2. If Yes to #1, is the information updated frequently? No
  3. If Yes to #1, is the list of licensed communities searchable? Yes
  4. Does the state post inspections, complaints, survey results, or violations online? Yes
  5. If Yes to #4, is the information updated frequently (within 90 days)? No
  6. If Yes to #2 and #4, is the enforcement information included in the same place as licensed communities? Yes
  7. If Yes to #4 and No to #6, are violations and inspections searchable at all? Yes and N/A
  8. Is information about special licensing for care shown? Yes
  9. Is capacity shown? No
  10. Are payment types shown (e.g., Medicaid, private pay)? No
  11. Is the administrator/contact name shown? No
  12. Can the state fine a facility? Yes
  13. What is the frequency of inspections? Every 24 months
  14. Does the website include pricing of facilities? No
