What to Consider About Assisted Living in College Station

In College Station, as well as in the rest of Texas, assisted living facilities follow rules set by Texas Health and Human Services. Seniors can refer to the agency’s Assisted Living Facility Information brochure to learn more about the types of facilities available in the state and the levels of care each facility type provides. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in College Station

  • Texas’ lack of state income taxes may make it easier for older adults in College Station to afford long-term care expenses. Sales and property taxes are high compared to other states, but seniors may be able to avoid these expenses by transitioning to assisted living. 
  • The College Station region is home to some of the leading hospitals in the state, including Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – College Station and St. Joseph Health College Station Hospital. Health care costs, such as dental services and hospitalizations, are about 8% less here than in the nation as a whole, which may benefit those managing ongoing conditions. While there are only 184 doctors per capita, about 12% lower than the national average, many assisted living facilities have visiting physicians to ensure consistent care for residents. 
  • College Station ranks as one of the warmer places to live in Texas, with daytime average temperatures ranging from 61 degrees in the winter to 97 degrees in the summer. The city sees about 40 inches of annual rainfall and virtually no snow, and summers tend to be very muggy. To keep residents comfortable, many assisted living facilities have individual climate control in residents’ quarters.
  • On a 100-point crime index, College Station’s property crime ranking is consistent with the national rate at 33.1, but the local violent crime rate is considerably lower at 12.7, providing peace of mind to those moving to this city for long-term care. To keep residents safe in the community, assisted living facilities typically arrange group outings for local events and shopping trips. 
  • College Station’s overall cost of living is about 7% below the national median and on par with the state average, which may enable older adults to maintain their standard of living throughout retirement. Transportation, groceries and utilities are affordable here compared to a typical U.S. city, but housing prices exceed state and national medians. Assisted living may be a good alternative to living alone for those with personal care needs.
