What to Consider About Assisted Living in Harris County

Harris County which is home to the world-famous Houston Zoo offers plenty of options for seniors seeking assisted living. The region boasts 152 assisted living facilities to support the senior population which is comprised of roughly 13 percent of the total population of 4,500,000 people. Assisted living facilities in this county, as well as in all of Texas, are licensed through the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. Facilities are divided into two categories, which are based on the ambulatory needs of residents: Type A facilities are for residents who can evacuate independently in the event of an emergency, while Type B facilities are for those who need assistance evacuating. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Harris County

  • Harris County seniors can expect hot summers with highs in the low 90s which may be uncomfortable for those who are sensitive to heat. However, the mild winters make it easy for active older adults to enjoy year-round outdoor activities.  

  • Seniors on a budget will appreciate Harris County’s low cost of living which is about 8 percent below the national average. In most cities in this county, seniors can expect to spend roughly 16 percent less on groceries as well as about 3 percent less on health-care and transportation expenses.  

  • Harris County ranks higher in both violent crime and property crime than other counties in the nation. While assisted living facilities generally have security systems to keep residents safe, seniors may want to practice caution when they’re out and about.  

  • The combined sales tax rate in Harris County is 7.25 percent, though the actual rate may be higher depending on which city a senior lives in.  However, Texas does not charge income tax on Social Security or retirement income which may leave more money in the bank for assisted living.  

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

  • Harris County has an array of community resources for seniors, including the Fun4Seniors, an organization that provides social, recreational and educational opportunities for the county's older adults, as well as 13 senior centers.
