You do not need to feel overwhelmed because you have plenty of beautiful options to choose from. It is crucial to help your elderly loved one transition into the Mississippi assisted living facility that would best to cater to his or her unique needs and preferences.

Mississippi has over 380 facilities serving seniors statewide. It is also estimated that seniors living in the state (above the age of 65), make up about 14% of the entire population. This depicts that the state has a growing community of the elderly in need of senior care. With the emerging increase in Mississippi assisted living facilities, many of the assisted living facilities are modern rather than outdated.

Assisted Living Amenities in Mississippi

Mississippi assisted living facilities provide personal care services to qualified seniors residing in the various assisted living communities within The Hospitality State. Such senior care services include medication management, homemaker services, and transportation assistance.

It is crucial to ensure that the assisted living facilities have the accommodations to support the needs of the elderly adult so they may age in place comfortably.

The scope of care provided by the various assisted living facilities within the Mississippi state include medical emergency response service, laundry assistance, personal care, support with personal hygiene, and the hosting of an array of social and personal development activities. The senior caregivers are also trained to assist with elderly adults with limited mobility and memory lapses. The credentials of the senior care staff are also carefully assessed in order to ensure the optimal quality of individualized care for the elderly senior residents. The caregivers in Mississippi’s assisted living facilities genuinely care about the quality of life and well-being of the older residents.

Cost, Payment Options and Payment Programs for Assisted Living in Mississippi

If you are considering the cost of assisted living in Mississippi, it is pertinent to note that prices can differ between different regions in the state. Thus, it is vital to ask each assisted living facility about current prices and potential price increases. Statewide in Mississippi, assisted living cost average is at $3,493 and this is just slightly below the national average of $4,000 per month. The cities that were up to that amount or slightly lower were in Biloxi and Hattiesburg. The most expensive assisted living available in Mississippi is in the $4,123 range in the other cities in Mississippi.

As we noted earlier, and for all states, memory and Alzheimer’s care is by far what makes the monthly expense costlier. For the state of Mississippi, you’re looking at between $699 and $1,047 addition charge for memory care every month. Currently, there aren’t any Medicaid or Medicaid waiver programs that would cover any cost of senior living and care for seniors not living at home. It is important to know that Medicaid’s intention is to keep people out of the senior retirement facilities and most states will not even have a waiver to cover this. For adult day care or foster care, there are generally waivers in all states because it is considered living in the community, so when you read that in descriptions of coverage, that is what the definition is.

Paying for assisted living in Mississippi is easier thanks to the lower statewide cost of most, though not all, facilities. If you’re still struggling to cover the cost of assisted living care, you may have to use retirement savings, annuities or other income streams that are available to you or your family members.

Available assisted living resources in Mississippi

You may also consider contacting a Mississippi senior living advisor or senior placement service to help you identify the Mississippi assisted living facility that would be best for you. These resources will help you identify the assisted living facilities that work well with your budget and would cater to the services you seek.

With Mississippi’s genuine hospitality, you are sure to find the assisted living facility where you will comfortably age in place. The assisted living facility will cater to your elderly adult’s holistic biopsychosocial needs, will motivate him or her to stay active, and will support him or her to continue feeling a sense of dignity as the caregivers will promote independence. For example, if your older parent would benefit from support with feeding, then the caregivers will place the food in the spoon and then help guide the food to your elderly loved one’s mouth. As a result, your older adult will feel independent and would be well nourished.  

Assisted Living Regulations in Mississippi

Assisted living facilities in Mississippi are referred to as Personal Care Homes, Residential Living and Personal Care Homes, as well as Assisted Living. The governmental department that handles the licensing of Mississippi senior living facilities is the Mississippi Department of Health in the Division of Health Facilities. They have the licensing split in two groups: Assisted Living and Residential Living.

Requirements for Both Licensing Groups:

  • Mississippi Residential Living Communities: This type of community, unlike assisted living, means simply that they cannot keep an individual or couple that cannot ambulate. This means if you or your senior needs assistance walking or moving in and out of bed or doing most of the physical everyday things, a residential living community is not for you.
  • Assisted Living: a facility that is licensed as assisted living is just that, living that is assisted. This means all ADLs are met.

In the state of Mississippi, assisted living homes may include a separate area or structure attached to the assisted living facility for memory and Alzheimer’s care. Please note, that the rates we will quote here for that care are not included in the memory and Alzheimer’s care rate of monthly assisted living rental unit.

The per resident required square footage in a Mississippi assisted living facility is 80 square feet of living floor space. This does not include closets, bathrooms, alcoves or door swing footage. This means any type of recessed floor space is not counted. This is so that the senior has room to walk freely and not encounter a roommate that is passing them. This also allows for easy use of all ambulation equipment by one or two aged occupants.

Only four residents are allowed in one assisted living facility unit in Mississippi. The minimum ratio to bathroom for each resident must be provided as follows: one bathtub or shower for up to every 12 assisted living residents; one sink and one commode for up to 6 residents.
