What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marble Falls

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission is responsible for regulating assisted living communities in Marble Falls and throughout the state. Although newly licensed assisted living communities may not receive an on-site health inspection immediately following receipt of their initial license, they can expect the facility to be surveyed no later than 90 days following licensure.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marble Falls

 

  • Texas is one of eight states that don’t collect state income taxes, so seniors in Marble Falls benefit by not having to pay taxes on their Social Security or retirement income. Furthermore, items that seniors in assisted living may frequently purchase, such as prescription drugs and over-the-counter medications, are sales tax-exempt.
  • Marble Falls has a humid subtropical climate, so summers are hot and potentially muggy. Humidity may be high 5 months out of the year, with June, July and August potentially the most uncomfortable months. The trade-off is incredibly mild winters with no snow, possibly reducing fall risks.
  • Although Marble Falls has a lower-than-average ratio of doctors to residents, it has much better air and water quality compared to national averages. On a scale of 1 to 100, the average air quality score nationwide is 58, while Marble Falls’ score is 70. Likewise, the national average water quality score is 55, while Marble Falls’ score is 89.
  • The overall cost of living in Marble Falls is slightly lower than the national average by just over 4%. However, grocery costs are nearly 8% lower, and they’re tax-exempt. Transportation costs are about 20% cheaper than the national median, potentially benefiting seniors who take public transportation, and miscellaneous goods and services, such as restaurants, cost about 12% less than the national norm.
  • CARTS is a Community Transit service that provides curb-to-curb transportation throughout Central Texas, including in Marble Falls, with reduced rates for seniors aged 65 or older. The service provides low-cost rides around Marble Falls and to and from nearby cities, such as Burnet and Austin, when transportation isn’t available through the assisted living community.
