There are very few states in the U.S. as highly underrated to visit or live in as Utah. The state has the third most national parks of any state in the country, despite being half the size of California and Alaska which rank #1 and #2 respectively. As a result, the state is an absolute paradise for outdoorsmen and recreational activities, and Utah senior housing is extraordinarily affordable.

In fact, Utah is the fourth cheapest state in the nation in terms of average monthly rent for senior living apartments and condos. At under $2,000, retirees that relocate to Utah can find high quality, extremely comfortable senior living.

Features of Senior Living Apartments in Utah

Along with a low cost of living, Utah senior living is further enhanced by its high-quality healthcare. Some of the best doctors practice in this state and medical facilities are readily available since the population in Utah (3 million) is far less than several other states.

Salt Lake City is the epicenter for healthcare in the state, though most of the best senior living apartments and condos in Utah are located outside the metropolitan area. Along with quality health care, older Utah residents and 55+ adults can stay active, whether it’s hiking or sightseeing in all the national or state parks, or treating themselves to world-class skiing.

From a political standpoint, Utah is a very conservative state. Approximately 62 percent of its residents are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS). Mormonism has a significant influence on culture and daily life in the state, though you certainly don’t have to be Mormon to retire here.

Utah senior housing contributes to a previous Gallup survey that named Utah the “Best State to Live In”. The study factored 13 different measurements (economy, lifestyle, health, etc.) to make that assertion. Additionally, the state has the least income inequality of any other U.S. state.

Affordable Utah Senior Housing

Monthly rents for senior living facilities in Utah begin at $950 and many are less than $1,500 per month. It is hard to beat that kind of affordable senior housing. The average price point for senior living apartments and condos in Utah is $1,800 - well below the national average. Even the most luxurious suites and independent living complexes in Utah do not even get close to reaching $3,000 per month, with most maxing out at $2,500. That is rare in the independent living community industry.

Utah is also growing quickly. St. George was once the fastest-growing metropolitan area in the United States. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the state of Utah had the second fastest-growing population of any state in the country.

Many of the residents that have been relocating to the state are retirees. Utah senior living facilities continue to get constructed and more 55+ or 62+ seniors seek the high quality of life in Utah that very few other states can match in terms of its monthly housing costs and exceptional health care services.
