    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bastrop

    Located 30 miles Southeast of Austin, Bastrop is home to the Bastrop Advertiser and County News. This publication has the distinction of being the oldest continuously published a weekly newspaper in the State of Texas. In addition to this long literary history, the city has two assisted living facilities that offer room and board, help with personal care and 24 hour supervision. These facilities are licensed by the Texas Health and Human Services Department. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bastrop

    • According to the EPA, the air quality in Bastrop is six points lower than the national average. It scores a 64 versus the country's mean of 58. This could be a concern for seniors with respiratory or allergy problems.

    • Though summer highs can reach into the mid-90s, Bastrop's climate is enticing.  It receives less rain than the national average and winter temperatures hover around the 40-degree-Fahrenheit mark. For active seniors who enjoy being outdoors, these are grand conditions.

    • Bastrop has a property crime problem. Its property crime rate exceeds the state's average by 27.6 points and is almost double the national average. However, its violent crime rate of 28.6 is below both state and national medians. For security-conscious seniors, this could raise concerns.

    • Bastrop's overall cost of living is three percentage points below the national average but seven points above the average for the state. However, grocery prices are well below both. For seniors with a limited budget, this could make a difference in their quality of life.

    • The Bastrop area is home to world-class medical facilities, including St. David's Emergency Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Bastrop offers several options for seniors needing public transportation services. The city is serviced by the Capital Area Rapid Transit system which runs regular routes through the city. It also offers curb-to-curb transportation services by appointment for seniors at half-price fares.
