    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Keene

    Keene, Texas, is a small town located approximately an hour's drive from the busy Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex. The town's population is just 6,500, 13% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. People in this is a demographic who  need assisted living accommodations as they age can choose from two of these communities in Keene or three more nearby. 

    Assisted living facilities in Keene are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Senior Services. These regulations have stipulations about the type of license the facility receives, based on the residents' need for overnight supervision and assistance evacuation in case of an emergency.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Keene

    • Weather in Keene includes mild winters with little snow and January lows in the 30s. Seniors sensitive to the cold may find relief here. However, Texas summers are long and hot, with temperatures in July reaching well into the 90s. Those seniors who have health conditions affected by high heat may be uncomfortable. 
    • The overall cost of living in Keene is 100.1, placing it right on par with the national average of 100. However, housing costs are notably lower, at 73.5 compared to the baseline. Lower housing costs may make assisted living fees lower, as the operating costs are less. This may be important for seniors on a tight budget. 
    • Keene is a fairly safe community, with crime rates well below the national average. Violent crimes are just 16.6 compared to the U.S. average of 22.7, while property crimes, including theft and car break-ins, are only 23.6 compared to 35.4 across the nation. 
    • Keene residents have access to the Cleburne Interurban Commuter Bus, which connects throughout Johnson County and terminates in Ft. Worth. Seniors may be eligible for reduced fares. 
    • The city of Keene has no facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in Fort Worth.
    • The state of Texas does not levy a state income tax, which may be helpful for seniors budgeting for assisted living care. This includes income from Social Security benefits and retirement investments.
