Tucson (AZ) Senior Living Communities

The reasons Tucson was once voted Businessweek magazine’s “Best Affordable Places to Retire” still hold true today. There’s plenty of sun and golf courses, excellent healthcare and a relatively low cost of living. Before you start your search from our 295 Tucson senior living options, see what else this desert city has to offer.

First, let’s look at finances. Tucson’s overall cost of living is 6% below the national average. And thought Arizona packs some of the highest state and local taxes in the country, they don’t tax Social Security benefits, and provide a $2,500 retirement exemption for military, civil service and state/local government pensions. How about senior living costs? Here are a few you might find interesting. A one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,200 a month says Genworth Financial’s long-term care survey. A private room in a nursing home averages $221 a day, while a semi-private averages $181.

With well over 300 sunny days a year, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get outside. You’ll find dozens of golf courses with championship course designs by Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones, Jr. and Tom Weiskopf. The Rillito River Park Trail winds through downtown along an 11-mile path, and the Santa Cruz River Park Trail includes part of the Anza National Historic Trail. The nearby mountain ranges—Santa Catalina, Rincon, Santa Rita, Tucson and Tortolita—all provide opportunities for hiking, biking, camping and discovering the areas wildlife, which includes 250 bird species.

Each year, check out the Tucson Folk Festival, Gem and Mineral Show, Tucson Rodeo, the Fourth Avenue Street Fair and other events. Local attractions include the Fort Lowell Museum, Tucson Museum of Art, Titan Missile Museum, Museum of the Horse Soldier and others.
