    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Friendswood

    Friendswood, TX, got its name from the close partnership of its founders, Frank Jacob Brown and Thomas Hadley Lewis, two Quakers from back east who, in 1895, founded what's now a suburb of Houston. Today, the city has expanded quite a lot, and it's now home to 23 assisted living communities. These properties are regulated as Type A residential care homes by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which inspects and monitors conditions in long-term care facilities across the state.

    Residents in Friendswood's assisted living communities pay a monthly fee, in exchange for room and board, emergency response if needed and help managing the activities of daily living (ADLs) that have grown too difficult for them to easily manage. Typical ADLs include bathing, dressing and cleaning residents' private or semi-private rooms, which are standard accommodations in Type A facilities.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Friendswood

    • Friendswood is part of southeast Houston, and it shares much of its weather. Lows of 44 degrees Fahrenheit and highs of 93 degrees are generally comfortable, but the extremes can take a toll on seniors with COPD or asthma.

    • Private housing is expensive in Friendswood, but almost everything else seniors in assisted living pay for is significantly cheaper here than the average for the rest of the country. Seniors who shop for groceries, for example, pay just 85 percent of the national median, while utility bills average 8 percent cheaper than the national rate.

    • Texas doesn't charge income tax on earnings or retirement income. There is a sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent, however, and seniors who drive must pay the 20 cent gas tax at the pump.

    • Friendswood lives up to its name in the local crime rates. Across all categories of illegal activity, this community, which is just 15 minutes from downtown Houston, runs to less than one-fifth the national averages. Violent crime is even more rare here, making it one of the safest spots for seniors in the Houston metro area. There was one homicide here in 2015, the first since 2008, which was itself the first since 2002.

    • The Houston METRO handles much of the public transportation in Friendswood, as it does for most of the nearby suburbs. This service operates fixed-schedule bus and rail routes that connect throughout the region, and both seniors and riders with disabilities get discount fares with valid ID.

    • The Friendswood area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Hermann Southeast Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
