    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Longview

    Longview is in the northeastern region of Texas about 30 miles away from the Louisiana border. Over 24 percent of its population are seniors, and with its beautiful rolling hills and lush vegetation, it's easy to see why so many have chosen to spend their golden years in the area. To ease this transition for seniors, there are a total of nine assisted living facilities in the Longview area, one of which is located nearby in Kilgore. Throughout the state, Texas Health and Human Services are responsible for licensing and regulating all assisted living facilities. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Longview

    • Longview has a low cost of living. Overall costs are more than 10 percent below the national average, meaning seniors will have more money to put towards the cost of assisted living.

    • The state of Texas does not deduct income tax from its residents. This means social security and other retirement benefits are tax-free, leaving seniors with more disposable income.

    • The Longview area is home to world-class medical facilities, including CHRISTUS Good Shephard Medical Center - Longview, in case of medical emergencies or illness. 

    • Seniors living in Longview have a greater chance of becoming a victim of property crimes such as robbery, theft or fraud. While the national median for property crime is 25 reports of property crime for every 1,000 residents, in Longview, a total of 36.37 property crimes are reported for every 1,000 residents.
