The average median for the state is just under $2,300 and some luxurious senior citizen and retirement communities can spike to almost $4,000 per month.

Benefits of Senior Housing in Nevada

Along with all the casinos, entertainment and warm weather -- Nevada is also a tax-friendly state. Compared to other states in the area, Nevada does fairly well because of all the tax revenue that is pumped in from tourism and the casinos. Additionally, the weather here is far less humid compared to other sunny states like Florida and South Carolina.

The top housing facilities for seniors in Nevada are also pet-friendly and provide a community-type approach to their lifestyles. 55 and older residents are encouraged to bring their pets along for the journey, and doggy parks are provided in many residences so pets can get some exercise too. Sponsored events from the senior housing complex or community (especially in Henderson) will get you connected with other 55+ and 62+ age seniors for dances, plays, game nights and other social activities.
