What to Consider About Assisted Living in La Porte

La Porte, Texas, is a quiet, mostly residential community considered part of the Houston-Sugarland-The Woodlands metro area. Seniors can participate in special events like Main Street Trade Days, Storytime in the Park, or in activities at the La Porte Senior Center. The population of this town is 35,000, 11% of whom are seniors aged 65 and older. Many of these seniors may need to transition to living in an assisted living facility for help with activities of daily living. La Porte has two assisted living facilities, and there are dozens more in the nearby Houston area. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in La Porte

  • Cost of living in La Porte is 103, compared with the national baseline of 100. Healthcare, housing, and grocery costs, all important to seniors in assisted living, average around 8 points below the U.S. average. These costs may mean that assisted living fees in La Porte are less than other Houston suburbs, as the operating costs for the facilities may be less. 
  • Weather in La Porte means July highs reaching consistently into the 90s; summers are long and hot. Winters, however, are mild with no snow. While seniors in assisted living may find the warmer temperatures relieve certain health conditions, those sensitive to high heat may be uncomfortable. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax, which may give seniors in La Porte a little extra money to pay for assisted living expenses. Withdrawals from retirement accounts, including IRAs and 401Ks, are also included in the tax exemption. 
  • La Porte seniors may make use of the La Porte public transit service, TransPorte, with reduced fares available.  To get around the greater Houston area, the METRO light rail and bus lines travel throughout the city and suburbs. Senior reduced fares are also available. 
  • The La Porte area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Kindred Hospital Bay Area and Houston Methodist Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
  • La Porte, as part of the greater Houston area, 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.
