Nevada is an up-and-coming retirement area based on moderate weather, plenty of golf and a good variety of other attractions. The current population of seniors is approximately 266,000 or approximately 10% of the population of the state. This ranks Nevada as the fourth lowest percentage population of seniors of any state in the US. This trend should change rapidly over the next few years as many warm weather seekers decide to avoid Florida because of its natural disaster record. The overall cost of living index for Nevada is 109, with housing topping the scale at 124. These numbers were calculated before the recent housing bubble burst. The bulk of Nevada seniors live in the Las Vegas, Reno, Sunrise Manor, Paradise, Spring Valley and Henderson areas. In addition to having a good selection of assisted living facilities in the areas, they also offer better health care services.
