Learn about senior assisted living in Mississippi
Seniors aged 65 and older make up 16.4% of Mississippi’s population, which sits just shy of 3 million. The state is home to a number of top-ranked health care facilities including the Mississippi Baptist Medical Center in Jackson and the 545-bed Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg.
In this guide, you’ll find an overview of assisted living costs in Mississippi and neighboring states, as well as information on financial aid programs for seniors who need long-term care. There are also links to a number of free and low-cost resources for older adults and a summary of the regulations for licensed assisted living communities in Mississippi.
