    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Granbury

    The Firehouse Cafe, in Granbury, Texas, makes huge cinnamon rolls, the biggest of which is on display in the dining hall where local seniors can enjoy brunch with friends from the area's three residential care facilities (RCF). These communities are all classed as Type A under the Texas Department of Health and Human Services' regulation standards. The department inspects  Granbury's RCFs — as well as all of Texas's RCFs — for quality of care, health and safety standards and staff training. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Granbury

    • Weather in Granbury is moderate by Texas' standards. Winter lows here average around 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and summer highs hover close to 95 degrees Fahrenheit in July and August. Dusty summers can be uncomfortable for seniors with allergies or asthma.

    • Cost of living in Granbury is slightly cheaper than the average for the United States. Groceries here cost around 95 percent what they do nationwide, while seniors who need mass transit to get around find that transportation costs are around 3 percent cheaper.

    • Texas charges no income tax to its residents, though the state sales tax ranges between 6.25 and 8.25 percent on most items. Seniors who drive pay a 20 cent gas tax on every gallon.

    • Crime is unusually high in some categories in Granbury. This is mostly property crime and petty theft, neither of which should be major concerns for seniors living in fully staffed assisted living communities. Violent crime is thankfully low, with "only" three murders happening here between 2002 and 2013.

    • Granbury is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, and as such it's on the line for Fort Worth's Trinity Metro Transit Authority. This service offers discounted fares for seniors and adults with disabilities, on-call curb to curb trips and ADA-compliant buses and trains. To claim the over-60 discount, seniors must have a valid transit ID at the time of boarding.

    • The Granbury area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Lake Granbury Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
