Benefits of assisted living in Houston

When you’re searching for an assisted living facility, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons of these communities. One benefit is that assisted living facilities are regulated by Texas Health and Human Services, which licenses them as Type A or Type B facilities based on whether residents need help evacuating during an emergency and whether they need nighttime attendance.

Other benefits of assisted living in Houston include:

  • There are over 190 assisted living facilities in Houston, so older adults have many options.
  • The State of Texas is considered tax-friendly toward older adults. There is no state income tax; Social Security retirement benefits and all retirement incomes are tax-free. The state does not tax withdrawals from retirement accounts.
  • The climate in Houston is humid subtropical, with mostly sunny and bright weather throughout the year. Older adults who prefer warmer conditions will enjoy Houston, with its average high temperatures during summer and its mild winters.
  • The Cost of Living Index in Houston is lower than in 63 other U.S. cities, according to Numbeo at the time of publishing, even though Houston is one of the largest cities in the country.

How much does assisted living cost in Houston?

On average, the cost of assisted living facilities in Houston ranges from $3,500 to $4,500 per month. Some of the factors that affect price are the type of apartment you choose, the level of care you or a loved one requires and the amenities offered by the community.

As you are getting quotes from assisted living facilities in Houston, be mindful of your budget. Ask what services can be adjusted to lower the price, if necessary. Most facility representatives are open to reducing services to find a package that fits your budget.

In Houston, low-income individuals who qualify can benefit from the STAR+PLUS Medicaid managed care program to pay for some assisted living services. Other options to help pay for assisted living include veterans benefits, life insurance, long-term care insurance and reverse mortgages.
