    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Austin

    Based on U.S. News rankings, Austin topped the 2018 List of the Best Places to Live and grabbed the fourth spot in the 2019 List of Best Places to Retire, making the capital city of Texas a favorable residential option for seniors. With 35 assisted living facilities scattered around the city and another one nearby, seniors who need help with activities of daily living can easily move into the Austin area. These ALFS are licensed by the Texas Health and Human Services.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Austin

    • Going around Austin is convenient by taking the MetroBus or MetroRail systems. All Metro vehicles ensure safe boarding and accommodate most types of mobility devices. Seniors are entitled to reduced fares and priority seating.
    • The Austin area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the St. David's Medical Center and the University Medical Center Brackenridge, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Austin is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
    • Austin seniors enjoy substantial financial benefits from Texas’ friendly income tax policy. The state does not impose taxes on income, including Social Security earnings and retirement income.
    • Crime rates in Austin are not one of the city’s best assets. The property crime rate is listed at 55, far above the national and the Austin-Round Rock metro area values, which both register at 35. The city’s violent crime rate is lower at 25 but is still worse than the national average of 23 and the Austin-Round Rock metro area’s 19.
    • Austin is one of the more expensive locations within Texas with an overall cost of living index of 130, much higher than the state’s 102 and the national index of 100. However, seniors enjoy more affordable grocery (89) and healthcare (92) costs with both indices falling below the national average of 100.
