    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lancaster

    Located in the southern part of the sprawling Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex is Lancaster, Texas, a smaller suburb located about 15 miles from downtown Dallas. The community has a newly built Senior Life Center, with classes, arts and crafts, fitness opportunities, including a pool, and even a large stage where members present plays and musicals that are open to all senior citizens. The population of Lancaster is 39,000, with 9% of this number being seniors aged 65 and older. These seniors will likely need accommodations in one of Lancaster's six assisted living facilities. 

    The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates and licenses these facilities. Adult living communities are divided into two types, depending on the level of care residents require. Assisted living facilities are considered Type A, meaning that residents do not require overnight supervision or staff assistance to evacuate in case of an emergency.  

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Lancaster

    • Lancaster residents enjoy long hot summers and winters with little snow. Seniors in assisted living who have health conditions aggravated by colder weather may find the warm weather brings relief. However, the July high temperatures, regularly reaching into the 90s and 100s, may be uncomfortable for other people. 
    • Lancaster's cost of living is just slightly higher than the national average, at 104 compared to 100. Housing costs here are some of the lowest in the DFW metroplex, 88 compared to the baseline of 100. This may make assisted living fees less too, as the operating costs for the homes could be less than other suburbs in the area. 
    • The state of Texas has no income tax, including income from Social Security benefits and retirement accounts. This may help seniors budgeting for assisted living. 
    • Seniors in Lancaster may make use of the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) public transportation system. Reduced fares for the light rails and buses are available, as is para-transport. 
    • Lancaster is home to world-class medical facilities, including Crescent Medical Center Lancaster and UT Southwestern Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Lancaster, as a suburb of Dallas, 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.
