What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bedford

Texas Health and Human Services licenses assisted living facilities in Bedford and enforces rules related to housing, meals, personal care and medication supervision and administration. The state licenses two types of facilities: Type A for ambulatory residents who require only routine assistance, and Type B for nonambulatory seniors who need nighttime attendance and evacuation assistance in an emergency.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Bedford

  • Local health care costs trend about 3% below national norms. While there are only 163 doctors per capita, seniors in assisted living facilities often have access to services such as telemedicine. Seniors can also access Texas Health HEB, a 286-bed hospital.
  • Seniors in Bedford have access to numerous transportation programs, including SOS, Northeast Transportation Services, HEB Transit and Call a Ride of Southlake. These services can supplement what seniors receive through their assisted living facilities.
  • There’s no state income tax in Texas, meaning older adults in Bedford don’t pay state taxes on their retirement income. Sales and property taxes are among the highest in the nation, but seniors in assisted living may be able to avoid some of these tax burdens.
  • Summers in Bedford are warm, with high summer temperatures in the mid-90s. Humidity levels tend to be high as well. The rest of the year is comfortable, with highs ranging from 66-82 degrees from November through May. Assisted living residents often have access to amenities such as swimming pools, helping them to stay comfortable year-round.
  • The American Lung Association gave the Bedford region an F for ozone pollution, which may be a concern for those who are sensitive to environmental pollutants. However, particle pollution levels are low, earning the city a passing score for annual levels and a B for 24-hour particle pollution.
  • On a 100-point crime index, Bedford scores 23.6 for violent crime and 36 for property crime, which is very close to national marks. The rates of both types of crime have been decreasing for the past 15 years, providing peace of mind to those relocating to this city for long-term care.
  • Bedford has a high cost of living, with the city ranking about 5% higher than the national average. It’s also 11 points higher than the state norm, indicating that most Texas cities are more affordable for seniors. Housing costs are particularly high here, but residents may also spend more on transportation and miscellaneous expenses such as repair services. Opting for assisted living may provide greater control over monthly expenses.
