    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Horseshoe Bay

    Tucked against the southern shore of Lake Lyndon B. Johnson along the Colorado River, Horseshoe Bay, Texas, is known as a lakeside resort town. The warm weather and close-knit community make it an attractive place for seniors. For big-city needs, Austin is 51 miles to the south and Llano 28 miles to the east. The city is divided between Llano and Burnet counties. There are three assisted living facilities in Llano County and three in Burnet County. 

    The state of Texas designates two levels of assisted living, which are licensed and monitored by the Department of Health and Human Services. Type A residents do not require overnight supervision and are able to evacuate the facility independently. For Type B residents, staff assistance is required in case of an emergency and overnight care and supervision are necessary. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Horseshoe Bay

    • Horseshoe Bay weather is hot and dry, with long summers and short winters. July high temperatures average 95 degrees Fahrenheit, and January lows are around 37 degrees. The cooler breezes from Lake Lyndon B. Johnson help reduce some of the effects of the heat, but seniors who are sensitive to high heat may be uncomfortable. 

    • Air quality in Horseshoe Bay is rated a 72, which is better than the U.S. average of 58. However, according to the American Lung Association, those with respiratory conditions, asthma, and those over 65 may still be at risk from particle or pollution in the air. 

    • The cost of living in Horseshoe Bay is 118.5, compared to a U.S. average of 100. The main difference is housing prices, which are 50 percent higher than the national average, although grocery and health care costs are also somewhat higher. 

    • The overall crime rate of Horseshoe Bay is 54 percent lower than the national average. Of the 47 crimes committed in the last year, 10 of the reported crimes were violent in nature. Theft, including vehicle theft and burglary, comprised the rest of the reported crimes. Seniors are advised to secure their belongings. 

    • Texas has no state income tax, meaning that retirement income and social security benefits are not subject to taxation. This means more money available for assisted living expenses. However, Texas has some of the highest rates in the nation for sales tax and property taxes. 

    • The city of Horseshoe Bay has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital, Baylor, Scott, and White, located in Marble Falls.
