Independent Living in Arizona

When people picture an ideal retirement scenario, Arizona is often what comes to mind. “The Grand Canyon State” has an abundance of warm, dry weather — which means anyone who suffers from seasonal allergies or asthma will find relief in Arizona’s desert climate — and its almost otherworldly natural landscapes provide countless opportunities for outdoor activities, exercise, and serenity. The trails throughout national parks like Saguaro and Petrified Forest capture the rugged mystique of the Southwest, and don’t worry, there’s no shortage of golf courses. Plus, considering the state doesn’t tax residents on social security income, it’s clear why so many Americans find peace of mind — and body — while retiring in Arizona.

Currently, A Place for Mom partners with more than 190 independent living communities in Arizona.

The median monthly cost of independent living in Arizona is about $2,300.
