Home Care Franchise in Mississippi
Mississippi isn’t on the radar for those seeking retirement in the southern states. It’s often overlooked in favor of Texas. But that’s good news for retirees on a tight budget looking for a less crowded state.
The best thing about Mississippi for retirees is no income tax on certified retirement income like 401(k)s and IRAs. Besides the lower cost of living than the average, the state boasts one of the most inexpensive median home prices.
Mississippi isn’t without drawbacks; it’s prone to hurricanes in some regions and the summers can be brutal. But mild winters, the Gulft Coasts, cultural charms, and the quintessential “southern hospitality cancel out those drawbacks.
As the older population grows rapidly in the United States, people will want to seek out less expensive states. Mississippi will no doubt become one of the sought after states due to no income tax.
As a ComForCare franchisee in Mississippi, you’ll be in the best position to offer affordable in home care services to seniors who prefer to stay in their own homes rather than go to nursing homes or assisted living facilities.
