I am 69 yo, health issues such as heart condition and arthritis (will need knee replacement eventually). I presently live in Tucson, no luck finding a place to rent or townhouse to buy in my price range. Am interested in Benson because of the clean air. Also, I have an environmental illness called mutliple chemical sensitivity-- which makes it very hard to find a place to live. Need non-smoking, no pesticides inside, no candles, no pets, single level, no steps.......

Can an old woman living alone (no family help) have services available as needed, such as handicapped van transportation, medical specialties including cardiology, GYN, dermatology, GI?

Not a lot of specialized treatment in Benson. The hospital is pretty good trauma center but as I understand it, pretty basic in regards to other specialties.

On the other hand it does have clean air, low crime, slow pace of life, fairly low rents, etc, etc, etc. There is a local bus service called BAT (Benson Area Transit) with handicapped access.

Services for the retired, as well as the disabled elderly, are very good in Green Valley. I don't know about environmental issues with the mines being close by. I know that there's plenty of expensive real estate. I see 36 properties in the apartment/townhouse/condo category under $50,000 on Trulia. Only five rentals under $800 though.

For more accurate responses, Serenity . . . you may try defining "my price range."
