Affordable Assisted Living in Dallas
With nearly 400 assisted living communities in the Dallas area, seniors searching for this type of living arrangement in Dallas will find that they have many options to choose from. These range from small facilities to large complexes, and the level of care provided varies. Some are set up for seniors who are still largely independent but can’t or don’t want the upkeep that a house requires. Others provide comprehensive services and advanced medical care.

With so many facilities in the area, there is competition--which drives down prices. Some communities charge as little as $1,895 per month. Monthly fees typically include room and board, some meals, housekeeping and transportation. Some facilities also offer free organized activities and classes for residents.

In addition to its affordable assisted living options, Dallas also has low tax rates -- which means seniors are able to keep more of their income. Texas does not have state income tax, and neither retirement income nor retired military pay is taxed. Social security benefits are also untaxed. All of these factors can help defray the costs of assisted living Dallas.

Dallas Neighborhoods
Seniors live in all parts of Dallas, but three areas are particularly popular with residents over 65.

White Rock Lake, a beautiful park on the east side of Dallas, is surrounded by residential neighborhoods that include a number of assisted living communities. Seniors account for about 18 percent of residents on the east side of White Rock Lake. South Dallas, which has lots of affordable housing options, also has a significant senior population. About 11 percent of the neighborhood’s population is 65 or older.

Getting Around Dallas
Driving is the preferred mode of transportation in Dallas. Seniors who either can’t or would rather not drive can expect to find shuttles and other types of transportation offered at most of the area’s assisted living communities. While roads and highways dominated the city, Dallas also has a rail and bus system, known as Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).

World-Class Hospitals and Specialized Care
Dallas boasts some of the best hospitals in the country, along many regionally ranked hospitals. The area’s best known hospitals are Baylor University Medical Center, which is nationally ranked in diabetes and endocrinology, gastroenterology and neurology, and UT Southwestern Medical Center, which is nationally ranked in cancer and geriatrics. The list of regionally ranked medical facilities in Dallas includes Texas Presbyterian Hospital, Medical City Dallas Hospital, Plaza Medical Center and Parkland Memorial Hospital.
