    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Kerrville

    Kerrville, TX, is a still-partly rural town of 23,000 people in a fairly isolated part of Central Texas. Wide stretches of open land surround this city of 19 assisted living communities, where seniors can enjoy long evenings outdoors in the clear air and mild nighttime temperatures.

    Kerrville's residential care facilities are regulated as Type A long-term care communities by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which inspects for quality health care and safety. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Kerrville

    • The weather in Kerrville includes 32 inches of rain, 1 inch of snow and temperatures that range between 34 and 94 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter and summer averages. Seniors whose breathing issues are aggravated by dry, cold air may want to stay indoors during the cold months in Kerrville, though summers are generally hot and humid.

    • Cost of living in Kerrville is somewhat lower than is common for similar-sized cities in the United States. Seniors who shop for themselves pay just 87 percent the average for groceries here, while health care costs run to just 94 percent the national average.

    • There's no income tax in Texas, so wages and retirement income are not levied by the state. Texas does apply a sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent to most retail items, however, while a 20 cent gas tax can make driving more expensive for seniors who still have a car.

    • Crime is relatively low in Kerrville. Across most categories, violent and property crime rates are only around two-thirds the rate of similar cities in the United States.

    • Alamo Regional Transit provides paratransit services to Kerrville's seniors, local riders with disabilities and members of the general public on demand. Trips can be scheduled in advance, which travel planners at some assisted living communities are glad to do for senior residents who need to make a medical office visit or who need a day out for themselves.

    • The Kerrville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Peterson Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
