What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lake Jackson

Texas Health and Human Services licenses all assisted living facilities in Lake Jackson and the rest of Texas, ensuring a consistent standard of care statewide. This department licenses two types of assisted living facilities, including Type A facilities for residents who don’t require nighttime attendance or evacuation assistance and Type B facilities for residents with more intensive care needs.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lake Jackson

 

  • Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, meaning seniors only pay federal income taxes on their income, savings and benefits, regardless of where they lived before retirement. This can help some older adults afford assisted living expenses in Lake Jackson. 
  • Lake Jackson is home to St. Luke’s Health – Brazosport Hospital, providing access to a variety of medical and social services to local seniors. This state-of-the-art facility features 154 inpatient beds, a Level III trauma center and cardiac care and cancer centers, as well as primary care services. Along with on-site visits, it provides telehealth services to seniors in the region, including those in local assisted living facilities.
  • Lake Jackson has long, hot summers and short, mild winters, making the city a favorable option for seniors who prefer warm climates. Throughout the year, daytime temperatures typically fall between 63 and 91 degrees Fahrenheit but may occasionally rise as high as 94 degrees Fahrenheit, and humidity levels tend to be high, particularly during the summer months. To accommodate varying temperature preferences, many assisted living facilities in the region have amenities such as swimming pools and individually controlled thermostats in residents’ apartments. 
  • The air quality in the Lake Jackson region is subpar, with the American Lung Association recording an average of 22 days annually in which ozone pollution levels are high enough to affect seniors. This region ranks among the nine worst in the nation out of 227 metropolitan regions for ozone pollution, as well as the 59th worst for 24-hour particle pollution. Fortunately, many local assisted living facilities have air filtration systems to maximize seniors’ health and comfort.
  • Crime isn’t a significant concern in Lake Jackson, making the city a favorable option for active seniors. On a 100-point index, the city rates 14.3 for violent crime and 29.4 for property-related offenses. These scores are well below the national respective norms of 22.7 and 35.4, indicating that crime occurs at a lower rate here than in a typical U.S. city.
