Independent Living Las Vegas, NV

Independent living communities are also known as retirement communities or 55+ communities in Las Vegas. These communities offer a wide range of services to seniors who desire to live independently among their peers. When it comes to the cost, 55 and over communities in Las Vegas have a median monthly cost of $1,900 for the city proper and $2,000 for the metropolitan area. A Place for Mom can help you or your loved one find the best retirement communities in Nevada.

Cost of Living in Las Vegas, NV

Senior living community price is influenced by the neighborhood in which it’s located. Las Vegas has a cost-of-living index rating 20 points above the national average of 100. This means that the cost of living is considerably more expensive than one might spend in another city. Much of this cost can be associated with Las Vegas’s status as one of the premier vacation destinations in the US.

Cost-of-living index Grocery index Median rent Rent burden Median home value Median family income Estate tax
120 97 $1,146 19.4% $209,083 $53,159 No estate tax or inheritance tax

Local Hospitals

Proximity to high quality medical communities is a common factor in deciding whether a particular location is right for you or your loved one. There are at least 16 hospitals that provide emergency care services to Las Vegas. As one of the world’s great tourist destinations as well as the largest city in Nevada, Las Vegas is home to a number of top rated hospitals and medical centers. These include:

  • Mountainview Hospital
