    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Las Cruces

    Located just across the New Mexico border from El Paso, Texas, Las Cruces is a fairly small city of 100,000 residents, almost 15 percent of whom are 65 years or older. For older Las Cruces residents needing or desiring assisted living care, the city is home to 10 assisted living facilities. In Las Cruces, as in all of New Mexico, the New Mexico Department of Health regulates assisted living facilities on the state level.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Las Cruces

    • The cost of living in Las Cruces is 9 percent lower than the national average. Staple items such as housing, groceries, healthcare and transportation all cost less in Las Cruces than in a typical U.S. city, making it an attractive destination for budget-conscious seniors.
    • Transportation options are limited for seniors who are unable to drive. Buses are available to seniors at a discounted rate of only $0.50 per ride, but routes are limited and tend to be focused around NMSU and a few major roads. RoadRunner Transit also offers free van ride services for people age 60 and older, but trips need to be scheduled at least two weeks in advance.
    • The climate in Las Cruces is ideal for seniors who like it to be warm and sunny but who also want to experience at least a semblance of a real winter. The city gets almost 300 sunny days per year, with average summer highs well above 90. However, January lows average below 30 in Las Cruces, and the city gets an average of three inches of annual snow.
    • Seniors in Las Cruces are required to pay state taxes on Social Security benefits and other retirement income, but depending on their income, they may qualify for a deduction to offset some of those taxes.
    • The air quality in Las Cruces is right at the national average. Seniors with asthma and other breathing difficulties can feel as comfortable in Las Cruces as in a typical U.S. city.
    • The Las Cruces area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
