Mississippi has a population of 3+ million which may seem like a lot of people yet compared to other parts of the south, like nearby Louisiana and Alabama, it’s actually fairly small by the standards of the region.

Why choose assisted living in Mississippi?

The south, which is notoriously dense in many areas, has one exception in Mississippi. It has the sizable cities of Jackson and Gulfport, and it is renowned for being far more rural and spread out than surrounding states.

Mississippi is known as the “Hospitality State” which is fitting for the quality care provided for the elderly at many of its type of senior living facilities, including assisted living.

The territory is also diverse and very unique to the state, offering a number of interesting state parks or other social engagements that older adults can only find in Mississippi.

Types of Assisted Living Available in Mississippi

The Division of Health Facilities Licensure and Certification is responsible for regulating assisted living centers in Mississippi. They are tasked with supervising the numerous complexes in the state, big and small.

You can get more information about a particular assisted living provider and their past reputation by consulting with the division.

Services vary based on the senior care community, though three of the most common include some form of directed care (very personal and hands-on), personal care (designed for those with some basic needs that must be met on a daily basis), and general supervision that is more interactive than what the loved one would receive in his or her own home.
