What to Consider About Assisted Living in Conroe

The Texas Health and Human Services Department licenses assisted living facilities in Conroe and the rest of the state. Facilities are licensed as Type A or Type B, depending on the care needs of the residents they admit. The department publishes the Assisted Living Facility Information brochure, which provides an in-depth look at facility types. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Conroe

  • Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, meaning that Conroe residents only pay federal income taxes in their retirement income. This may make local living and care costs affordable for those with fixed incomes.
  • The air quality in Conroe may be a concern for those with respiratory or cardiovascular conditions. The American Lung Association doesn’t have data for 24-hour or annual particle pollution, but it gives the region an F for ozone pollution. Assisted living facilities have indoor social and recreational activities throughout the year, helping residents who are sensitive to pollutants, such as smog, to stay active.
  • Health care costs in Conroe come in a little below the national median, but the limited number of health care providers may impact wait times to see primary care providers and specialists. HCA Houston Healthcare Conroe is located in the city proper, and there are major medical facilities in nearby cities, such as The Woodlands, Houston and Shenandoah. Assisted living facilities often have visiting physicians and provide transportation to medical offices, helping older adults access necessary care.
  • Conroe’s weather is very warm with daytime high temperatures ranging from 61 degrees in the winter to 94 degrees in the hottest part of the summer. The city gets about 49 inches of annual rainfall and no snow, which may appeal to those who do their own driving or rely on mobility aids.
  • The cost of living in Conroe is roughly consistent with the state median and about 5% lower than the national average, making it a budget-friendly option for those seeking long-term care. Housing costs are a little high compared to the rest of the state, but seniors may save money by moving to assisted living.
  • The violent crime rate in Conroe is consistent with the national median, but property crime is relatively prevalent. To keep residents and their belongings safe, assisted living facilities often have security features, such as secured courtyards, surveillance cameras and alarm systems.
