Families considering assisted living in Mississippi will be greeted by warm temperatures and a landscape defined by the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers. Elevation is low throughout the state, with some small hills in the northeast section. In Mississippi’s western counties, river flooding throughout history deposited sediment into the fertile area now known as the Mississippi Alluvial Plain. The state’s climate becomes increasingly tropical as you travel south toward the beaches of Bay St. Louis along the Gulf Coast. Mississippi’s affordable living costs — the lowest of any U.S. state — along with its mild climate and proximity to popular destinations such as New Orleans and the Florida panhandle make the Magnolia State an ideal retirement destination.
Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 40 senior living communities in Mississippi that provide assisted living.
The median monthly cost of assisted living in Mississippi is about $3,200.
