What to Consider About Assisted Living in Texarkana

In Texarkana and across the state of Arkansas, the well-being of older citizens is the purview of the Arkansas Department of Human Services. The department can assist directly in some cases, such as providing information about assisted living facilities in different counties; it can also direct seniors to the options provided by the Division of Aging, Adult & Behavioral Health Services.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Texarkana

  • Sperling’s Best Places records the average cost of living in the United States as 100. In Arkansas, the figure is significantly lower at 79. Texarkana is an even more affordable location, with an average score of 74.4 across multiple categories. In every category, Texarkana scores favorably when compared to the national average. The same is true for the state average in most cases; however, health care costs are slightly higher than the state average, which may be influenced by medical facilities in larger cities being too far away to compete.
  • Most of the biggest medical facilities in Texarkana are on the Texas side of the state line. These include the Wadley Regional Medical Center, which is only a 5-minute journey from Arkansas, and the Christus St. Michael Hospital, which is 5 minutes further on. Genesis PrimeCare is the largest provider on the Arkansas side of the twin cities. It focuses on primary and preventative care for all ages.
  • Although the violent and property crime rates in Texarkana are above national averages, the trend is downward. In the cases of both property and violent crime, the city is slightly above average for Arkansas. However, when compared to similarly sized nearby cities, Texarkana proves itself to be safer. Only 12 minutes away in Nash, Texas, violent crimes per 100k are at 1,083.8 and property crimes at 3,783. In Texarkana, those numbers stand at 610.6 and 3,770.3, respectively.
  • AARP is a nonprofit organization that exists to promote and support healthy aging among those 50 and older. As a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, Texarkana works to create a living environment that always keeps the needs of seniors in mind.  
  • Texarkana can claim its climate is more favorable to older citizens than most. Bestplaces.net gives the city a 7/10 score, making it one of the more comfortable locations in the state. Daily lows rarely drop below freezing in winter; in summer, highs in the low 90s are common.
