Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Arlington
- Arlington seniors are not taxed on pensions, Social Security benefits and retirement savings account withdrawals as per Texas' tax laws. Seniors who rely on these types of income may find that living in Arlington helps their healthcare dollars stretch further.
Handitran provides door-to-door transportation for seniors. Once seniors set up an account for the service, they can easily schedule or cancel a trip and check their ride's estimated time of arrival.
- The Arlington area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Texas Health Heart & Vascular Hospital and Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Arlington, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
- Summers get quite hot in Arlington with temperatures reaching an average July high of 95 degrees. While assisted living facilities are climate-controlled, this may be a consideration for active seniors who enjoy being outdoors.
- Arlington's cost of living is 108.9, slightly higher than the national average of 100. However, healthcare expenses rank lower than the average at 97 meaning seniors living in the city can expect to pay less for doctor's visits, hospital stays and routine tests.
- Arlington has high crime rates. Violent crime rates in the city are 30.7, eight points higher than the national average of 22.7, and property crime rates are 49.4, 14 points higher than the national average of 35.4. Although these crime rates are unlikely to directly impact seniors living in secure assisted living facilities, it's still a good idea to inquire about whether a facility has security protocols like alarm systems, cameras and self-locking doors in place.
