Sunray, a rural Texas Panhandle town of 1,812, lies in Moore County where adults aged 65 and older make up 11.3% of the population. It’s only a few minutes from cultural gems such as Window on the Plains Museum and The Art Center featuring historic displays and local art. A host of age-friendly outdoor attractions, including Playa Lakes, Lake Meredith and the Alibates Flint Quarries, are less than an hour away. Seniors here can turn to Moore County Hospital District for a wide range of general and specialty medical services.

Sunray’s seniors have access to several quality in-home care services to support aging at home. According to the Genworth Financial 2020 Cost of Care Survey, the average monthly price of homemaker services is $4,004. Although home health care provides additional light medical services, its average cost is the same. Both services cost less than the national average of $4,481 for home care and $4,576 for home health care services.
