What to Consider About Assisted Living in Alvin

Alvin, TX, is a southern suburb of Houston with just over 24,000 residents. The city's rapid growth from a small whistle-stop on the Southern Railroad has diversified the local economy and culture, and now Alvin supports 14 local assisted living communities within its borders. These facilities offer seniors help with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, personal care and taking some medications, as well as emergency response and communal meals.

In Alvin and all of Texas, residential care facilities are regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which conducts site inspections and takes feedback from residents and family members about health and safety, quality of care and independent living issues in local assisted living properties.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Alvin

  • Alvin's weather can be touchy. Tropical Storm Claudette, which blew through in 1979, set the record for most rain in the United States in 24 hours when it dropped 43 inches on Alvin in a single day. When the weather is normal, highs here average 91 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer and 42 degrees in winter. Absent a hurricane, Alvin generally gets 54 inches of rain a year.

  • Alvin's cost of living is manageable for most seniors with solid retirement income. Groceries here cost up to 14 percent less than the national average, while transportation costs are 7 percent cheaper. Health care is close to national rates, at about 1 percent higher than the rest of the country.

  • There's no income tax on wages or retirement income in Texas, though the state's sales tax runs between 6.25 and 8.25 percent on most purchases. Drivers pay a 20 cent gas tax on every gallon, which somewhat accounts for the higher cost seniors pay for rides here.

  • Crime in Alvin is about two-thirds the national average. Violent crimes are especially uncommon here, which makes outings fairly safe for independent seniors.

  • As part of the larger Houston metro area, Alvin is connected to the surrounding communities through the vast Houston METRO network of buses and trains. Seniors who need a lift can board METRO buses and trains at a discount with valid ID, and curb-to-curb paratransit service is available for one-off trips if booked in advance.

  • The Alvin area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
