Frisco is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area and one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation. The population in 2020 was 200,509, a 71.4% increase from the 2019 population of 116,989. Seniors 60 and older account for 12% of Frisco’s population and have many options to enjoy the city’s year-round activities and warm climate. 

Most seniors prefer to remain living at home as long as they can. However, when they need help with daily living needs, housekeeping and transportation, assisted living communities offer these services in a homey environment. Assisted living is an appropriate option when the higher-level medical care of a nursing home is not needed. Seniors in Frisco pay an average monthly amount of $4,195 for assisted living, which is $197 higher than the Texas average of $3,998.

If you are considering an assisted living community in Frisco, this guide provides information, costs and the benefits and downside to living in the city. A listing of free resources for seniors in Frisco is also included.

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Frisco

Assisted living in Frisco is certified and licensed by the Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) department. The agency schedules regular and unannounced visits to assisted living facilities in Frisco ensuring the Texas rules and regulations for long-term care are being abided by. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Frisco

  • The cost of living in Frisco is 20% higher than the national average and around 6% higher than the state average. To offset the higher cost of living, seniors can find relief through the retiree tax-friendly policies of Texas as a state. Texas does not tax Social Security income or withdrawals from retirement accounts. 
  • The climate in Frisco offers seniors 230 days of sunshine to enjoy the city’s outdoor activities, such as sports and fine arts events or a visit to one of the many beautiful open space parks. Frisco only receives 1 inch of snow each year on average and 40 inches of rainfall, which is fairly comparable to the national average of 38 inches. When the summer heats up and the humidity climbs, seniors have many choices for indoor recreation, including the city’s senior center.
  • Frisco has several local hospitals and is only 15 miles north of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area offering numerous health care options. Most notable in Frisco is Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco, which offers patients award-winning medical care and state-of-the-art technology, all among comfortable and aesthetic surroundings.
  • Seniors juggle many health care needs, and living in a healthy city provides a better opportunity to stay well as they age. Frisco has a high water quality index of 80, with 100 being the best. This is higher than the nation’s average of 55. The air quality for the city averages 59 out of 100 and changes often based on weather.
  • Seniors have more choices when it comes to physicians. The per capita in Frisco is 228 physicians per 100,000 residents compared to the United States average of 210 per 100,000 people

Assisted living care in Frisco averages $4,195 monthly, according to Genworth’s Cost of Care Survey. This is more than the Texas average of $3,998 but less than the U.S. average of $4,500.
