    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Highlands

    Highlands, Texas, is a small town nestled along the banks of the San Jacinto River, near the Gulf of Mexico. It's a suburb to the east of busy Houston, close enough for big-city conveniences and far enough on the outskirts to preserve its small-town charm. The Rio Villa Nature Trail and Bear Lake offer plenty of outdoor activities for the nature-loving senior.  Despite its modest population of 7,500, 11.8 percent of the Highlands population are aged 65 and over. There are two assisted living facilities in the Highlands community, with another 94 in the city of Houston. Texas assisted living facilities are regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services and classified and licensed based on residents' abilities to evacuate the facility in an emergency and whether night time attendance is necessary.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Highlands

    • South Texas has long, hot summers and mild winters. July high temperatures average 92 degrees, while January lows average around 44. Seniors with health conditions alleviated by warm weather will find relief here. The proximity of Highlands to the Gulf of Mexico makes it vulnerable during hurricane season. 

    • The cost of living in Highlands is 100.2, compared against the national average of 100. Housing is 20 percent lower and grocery and the cost of healthcare is about the same. Transportation costs are significantly higher, bringing the overall cost of living higher. 

    • Violent crime rates in Highlands are notably higher than the national average, while property crimes are slightly higher. Most assisted living facilities have security systems, though seniors are still advised to secure their possessions. 

    • Seniors in Highlands may make use of the Harris County regional transit service which has both light rail and bus lines. Para-transportation and reduced rates for seniors are available. 
    • Highlands, as a suburb of Houston, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
