What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alvin

Assisted living communities in Alvin are regulated by the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services. This government agency is in charge of enforcing staff training requirements, health and safety codes and other statewide guidelines to protect seniors' well-being. Older adults and their families can use the agency's online database to verify facility licenses. 

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alvin

  • In Alvin, local health care prices are 13.6% lower than the national norm and 8.9% cheaper than Texas's statewide average. These lower prices may help seniors effectively manage their finances while living in the city.
  • Alvin has 34.7% fewer physicians per capita than the national average and no local hospital, which may increase wait times for health care. Still, seniors can access Affinity Urgent Care in town, and Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital is located about 30 minutes away in Houston.
  • The overall cost of living in Alvin is 6.1% lower than the national average. It's also slightly less than Texas's statewide norm. Seniors may be able to find further cost savings by moving into an assisted living community thanks to fixed monthly rates that include room and board.
  • Alvin is generally tax-friendly for seniors, with no state income taxes on Social Security or any other forms of income. Seniors do have to pay sales taxes, which average 8% statewide, although groceries and certain medications are exempt.
  • Crime rates in Alvin are mixed. Using a 100-point scale, with 100 representing high crime, local property crime ranks at 37.1 compared to 35.4 nationally. Violent crime is less common, ranking at 11.5 versus the U.S. norm of 22.7. Seniors concerned about safety may find peace of mind in an assisted living community due to security features such as cameras, monitored entrances and 24/7 staff presence.
  • Alvin has a very humid and warm climate. The city gets about 54.2 inches of rain annually compared to the national average of 38.1, and summer temperatures often surpass 90 degrees Fahrenheit. On the other hand, winter is mild in Alvin, with temperatures staying around 50 degrees Fahrenheit during the day.
