What to Consider About Assisted Living in Denison

Assisted living facilities in Denison fall under the auspices of the Texas Health and Human Services Department. Each facility is licensed and regularly inspected to make sure it upholds strict state standards. This way, seniors and their families can be assured that residents receive the best possible care and service from properly trained staff members in a clean, well-maintained facility.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Denison

  • The overall climate comfort index for Denison comes in at 7.3 out of 10, just above the national rating of 7. Winters are fairly moderate with minimal snow, and January’s lows hover around freezing. Summers can be hot, with July’s highs reaching up to 93 degrees Fahrenheit. Assisted living communities, however, provide climate-controlled environments where seniors can be comfortable year-round.
  • Denison’s cost of living comes in at 81.9 compared to a national average of 100. The Texas average is 94.2. Housing and transportation costs are low in this city, but groceries also fall below average. Even seniors living in assisted living communities can benefit from this low cost of living because it can potentially impact their rent and care costs.
  • Texas is generally a tax-friendly state for seniors, so Denison’s senior community can benefit from many tax exemptions. Social Security and other retirement income are not taxed.
  • Crime in Denison may be something of a concern although crime rates are moderate. Violent crime comes in at a rate of 20.7, with the U.S. average at 22.7. Property crime rates are higher at 41.9 with a national average of 35.4. Seniors should take precautions, especially with regard to property crime, but they can find assurance in the extra level of security and monitoring provided in assisted living communities.
  • Denison boasts above-average water quality. The city scores 79 out of 100 on the water quality index, which is significantly higher than the national average of 55. Air quality is also reasonable at 58 out of 100, right on par with the U.S. average. Good water and air quality can decrease health risks for seniors and other residents.
  • Denison’s seniors are served by Texoma Medical Center, which specializes in heart conditions, diabetes, kidney failure, stroke and COPD, all of which can affect older adults. Seniors have access to over 550 physicians as well as an emergency department and support programs.
