What to Consider About Assisted Living in Belton

Belton is located on the famous Chisholm Trail and borders Stillhouse Hollow Lake, one of the few places in Central Texas where seniors can boat, fish, or relax near the water. Aging citizens of nearly all activity levels can be found in Belton's seven licensed assisted living communities, where in addition to room and board they get emergency response and help with activities of daily living (ADLs). The Texas Department of Health and Human Services classes these properties as Type A long-term care facilities, where staff assist senior residents with dressing, grooming and taking some medications.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Belton

  • Weather in Belton can be rough for seniors with COPD or asthma in the winter when average lows dip to 35 degrees Fahrenheit and the air gets dry. Summer highs average 94 degrees in August, however, and humidity rises to 100 percent on many days.

  • Housing is very affordable in Belton, and other costs are similarly low. Seniors who shop for their own groceries pay around 16 percent less here than the national average, while health care costs are just 92 percent the national rate.
  • Texas charges no state-level income tax on wages and retirement income. Seniors who shop do have to pay the sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent for most purchases, however, and a 20 cent gas tax on every gallon can raise the cost of transportation around town.

  • Between 2014 and 2016, crime in Belton dropped by one-third, from just above the national average to significantly less. Seniors who enjoy outdoor activities in the warm summer evenings here are considerably safer than in typical American cities of the same size elsewhere.

  • Hill County Transit operates the HOP, a local bus service in Central Texas. Riders on HOP buses can choose a fixed-route bus to regularly serviced locations, while riders with disabilities are able to schedule a special transit service that provides curb-to-curb rides for medical office visits and personal trips to shops and private homes.

  • The Belton area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Cedar Crest Hospital & Residential Treatment Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
