What to Consider About Assisted Living in Fredericksburg

Listed by CBS Miami as one of the Best Vacation Destinations for American History Buffs in February 2018 and named as the Best Small Town by the Southern Living Magazine in March 2018, the city of Fredericksburg, Texas, appeals to seniors seeking a heritage-rich community with a small-town ambiance. Seniors wanting to relocate to Fredericksburg can choose from among four assisted living facilities (ALFs) in the city. ALFs in Fredericksburg and the rest of the state are licensed, certified and monitored by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Fredericksburg

  • The historic district heart of Fredericksburg is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Lined with numerous interesting historical landmarks, the district offers seniors a venue for leisurely walks. The National Museum of the Pacific War, one of the city’s main attractions, offers discounted tickets to visitors 65 years old and above and provides free access to wheelchairs and motorized chairs.
  • Seniors in Fredericksburg benefit from Texas’ friendly income tax policy. The state does not deduct taxes from income, including Social Security retirement benefits, private and public pension income and other types of retirement income.
  • The Fredericksburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including the Hill Country Memorial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • Seniors who have little tolerance for harsh winter conditions may find the Fredericksburg climate appealing. The city enjoys mostly sunny days throughout the year. It typically receives no snowfall, and the average low temperature during colder months is more comfortable at 35 degrees compared to the national average of 23 degrees.
  • With its relatively low crime rates, Fredericksburg is one of the safer communities within Texas. It has a property crime rate of 32.3, lower than the state’s 45.5. The violent crime rate is listed at 20, which is also below the state’s 32.9.
  • Although the city’s overall cost of living of 107 is higher than the national average of 100, the health cost of 79 is 21 points lower than the national average. This translates into more affordable healthcare costs for seniors needing long-term maintenance.
