What to Consider About Assisted Living in Greenville
The 25,500 people who call Greenville, TX, home are living in what used to be the heart of cotton country in Texas, as well as Audie Murphy's old hometown. Both of these distinctions are commemorated at the combined Audie Murphy/Cotton Museum in Greenville, which has benches and outdoor spaces for local seniors to pass a hot afternoon. Aging citizens in Greenville also have three licensed assisted living communities to choose from, all of which are regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. This body monitors conditions and carries out inspections in Greenville's long-term care homes, where staff provide 24-hour emergency response for seniors, as well as help with normal activities of daily living (ADLs) such as bathing and personal care.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Greenville

- Greenville can be an affordable place to live in some respects, but seniors who don't have enough health insurance might find it an expensive place to retire.

Health care, however, averages up to 23 percent more expensive in Greenville, which can be an issue for seniors with chronic health conditions like diabetes.
- Texas doesn't impose an income tax on wage earners and retired seniors, which helps make income from a 401(k) go a lot further. There is a sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent, however, and seniors who drive are on the hook for the 20 cent gas tax.
Crime in Greenville is relatively high, compared with rates across the country. The situation has been getting better since 2002, however, when the property crime rate was double what it fell to in 2017.
