    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Beaumont

    Beaumont is where the oil business really got started in Texas, at the nearby Spindletop Gusher. This prosperity has built up Beaumont into a modern, thriving city that supports 11 assisted living communities. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates these facilities as Type A residential care homes, where seniors get the help they need with activities of daily living (ADLs). These include dressing, bathing, meal prep and taking some medications, which staff are trained to do in addition to providing 24-hour emergency response.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Beaumont

    • Beaumont's weather is similar to neighboring Port Arthur. Here, summer highs rise to an average 92 degrees Fahrenheit, while lows average 43 degrees in winter. The spring rain here can raise allergens, which becomes an issue for sensitive seniors and those with asthma.

    • Beaumont's prices are manageable for seniors on Social Security and other retirement income. Groceries and health care here both cost around 10 percent less than the average nationally.

    • Texas doesn't charge income tax on residents' wages or retirement income, which is good news for seniors on a fixed income. A 6.25 to 8.25 percent sales tax does raise the cost of most items, which aging citizens who shop might find inconvenient. Seniors who still drive wind up paying a 20 cent per gallon gas tax.

    • Crime is a major concern in Beaumont, TX. Rates here are double the national average in many categories, though the rates have been gradually falling since their 2002 highs.

    • Seniors who need a ride around Beaumont, TX, can hop aboard one of the ADA-compliant buses operated locally by the Beaumont Municipal Transit System (BMTS). This service covers much of the city area with fixed-route service, and aging citizens can schedule paratransit service to other spots, such as doctors' offices and favorite shopping spots away from the main roads. Seniors get discount fares on this network, as do riders with disabilities. Valid transit ID is required for the discount fares and can be had from the BMTS public office on Milam St.

    • The Beaumont area is home to world-class medical facilities, including CHRISTUS Hospital - St. Elizabeth, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
