What to Consider About Assisted Living in Converse

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, fully one-third of Converse, TX, or 23,000 residents, have moved there since 2010. Seniors are a big part of the migration into this Old West suburb of San Antonio, with 46 assisted living communities springing up here to offer seniors a home where they can get help with activities of daily living (ADLs). These range from personal care, such as dressing and meal prep, to more vigorous chores like cleaning and laundry. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates assisted living in Converse and all of Texas as a Type A long-term care option. The department publishes guidelines and conducts inspections to ensure high quality of care and staff training.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Converse

  • Converse shares its weather with nearby San Antonio, where winter lows average close to 39 degrees Fahrenheit, and the air gets dry enough in winter to pose a challenge for seniors with breathing issues like COPD or asthma. Summer highs in the region rise to 95 degrees, with 33 inches of rain falling mainly in spring and fall.

  • The cost of living in Converse is manageable for most seniors, even on a fixed income. Groceries in this part-rural town cost about 16 percent less than the average price elsewhere. Health care is also cheaper, but not by much. Aging citizens with chronic health issues pay close to 97 percent the average cost here.

  • Wages and retirement income are not subject to income tax in the state of Texas, though the government does impose sales taxes of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent on most purchases. Seniors who drive also pay 20 cents a gallon toward the state gas tax.

  • Crime rates in Converse are slightly lower than the national rates in most categories. In the violent crime categories seniors are most vulnerable to, rates are up to one-third lower than the national average.

  • Transportation in Converse is, for residents without private cars, largely in the hands of VIA Metropolitan Transit, which runs fixed-route buses through the area. Seniors and riders with disabilities get disocunt fares on VIA, and dial-a-ride services can be booked a day or so in advance.

  • The Converse area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Northeast Methodist Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
