What to Consider About Assisted Living in Granbury

Assisted living communities in Granbury receive regulation and licensing through the Health and Human Services Commission. Before a facility can apply for licensing, it must complete a pre-licensure course through the HHSC and potentially go through an on-site inspection after receiving its initial license. A survey of the facility occurs within 90 days of being licensed.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Granbury

  • A major perk for seniors living in Granbury is that Texas doesn’t collect state income taxes. Thus, they won’t pay taxes on their retirement income, helping them stretch their dollars. The state makes up for not having state income taxes through higher-than-average property taxes, but seniors in assisted living shouldn’t have to worry about these taxes.
  • Texas’ average combined state and local sales tax rate is 8.25%, one of the higher rates in the United States. However, as part of Hood County, Granbury seniors pay much less. The county only tacks on 0.50% to the state rate, and Granbury doesn’t collect local sales tax, for a combined total of 6.75%. This rate makes sales taxes in Granbury and Hood County lower than 83.9% of other Texas cities and counties. Groceries are tax-exempt and prescription and non-prescription medications only incur county sales taxes but not state.
  • Although Granbury’s overall cost of living is marginally higher than the national average by 4%, the lack of state income taxes and lower sales taxes help offset some higher costs. The average cost of groceries is about 2% less than the national average, and don’t forget that they’re tax-exempt.
  • Granbury has a higher-than-average property crime rate, but violent crime in the city is much lower than the national average. Violent crime is also lower in Granbury compared to the Dallas-Fort-Worth-Arlington Metro combined and the state average.
  • Seniors may find it difficult to get scheduled with a physician in Granbury, as the city only has 114 doctors per 100,000 residents. This amount is much lower than the national average of 210. However, it does have a local hospital. Lake Granbury Medical Center is a general medical and surgical facility rated high-performing in treating heart failure and COPD.
  • Spending time outdoors comes easy for seniors in Granbury, where they enjoy 229 sunny days compared to the national average of 205, lower-than-average 35 inches of annual rainfall and no snow. Summers can get hot, with the July high around 96 degrees, and about 65 nights in the winter months fall below freezing but none dip below 0.
