Arkansas, officially dubbed the “Natural State”, but more widely known as the “Razorback State”, offers up an idyllic setting for retirement in the United States. With an extremely diverse topography, retirees in Arkansas can choose between mountain life, more isolation in the forests, or lowlands along the river, with national parks sprinkled all over the state.

The state also has a reputation for being unhealthy, however, and long term care is an ever present issue for people across Arkansas. Fortunately, the long term care costs are lower than the national average, giving retirees yet another reason to move to this beautiful state.

Arkansas is one of the many states that has implemented a Long Term Care Partnership Program to incentivize its residents to invest in long term care and take responsibility for their future.
