    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Marble Falls

    Nestled in the rolling Highland Lakes area of Texas, the small town of Marble Falls is full of scenic beauty. The big city experience is nearby, too, as Marble Falls is 48 miles north of the state capital, Austin, and 75 miles northwest of busy San Antonio. The city's total population is only about 7,000 people, but the area offers four assisted living communities for seniors.

    The state of Texas designates two levels of assisted living. Type A facilities house residents able to evacuate on their own in an emergency, while Type B facilities serve residents who need overnight care and would need direction in case of an evacuation. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Marble Falls

    • Marble Falls weather is hot and dry, with July high temperatures averaging 95 degrees Fahrenheit and January lows around 37 degrees. While its proximity to the Colorado River helps reduce some of the excess heat, Marble Falls may be uncomfortable for seniors whose health conditions are aggravated by high temperatures.  

    • The cost of living in Marble Falls is about 2 percent higher than the U.S. average, with the difference due to housing prices. Groceries in Marble Falls cost about 14 percent lower than the U.S. average, and health care expenses fall about 6 percent lower. 

    • The city's violent crime rate is 16.9 out of 100, while the U.S. average is 31.1. However, the property crime rate in Marble Falls is higher than the national average, at 58.4 versus 38.1. Seniors are encouraged to use caution, as property crimes can range from petty theft to larceny. 

    • The Central Area Rural Transportation System (CARTS) provides door-to-door Country Bus services in the central Texas area. Once to the city of Austin, riders may use the city's bus or rail lines. Seniors qualify for reduced rates. 

    • The Keller area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baylor Scott & White Hospital and Seton Highland Lakes hospital branches, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

    • Air quality in Marble Falls scores a 70, which is better than the U.S. average of 58. Its distance from larger cities, as well as fresh breezes from the lakes and river, may bring relief to those with breathing problems.
