What to Consider About Assisted Living in Missouri City

All assisted living facilities in Missouri City must follow regulations enforced by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, Licensing and Certification Unit. The state licenses two types of facilities that are classified according to the level of care they’re authorized to provide.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Missouri City

  • Missouri City is slightly less comfortable than other parts of the Lone Star State due to high summer temperatures and oppressive humidity levels. However, the area also enjoys mild Gulf Coast winters that are comfortable for seniors, and most assisted living facilities offer individual temperature controls for year-round comfort. 
  • Seniors who need help getting around town can schedule wheelchair-accessible on-demand transportation through the Missouri City Community Connector. Seniors, disabled adults and Medicare beneficiaries qualify for discounted fares starting at 60 cents per ride. The city’s senior center also organizes bus trips to regional destinations and events. 
  • Seniors in Missouri City benefit from a moderate cost of living that’s just 5% higher than the national average. Most cost indices for essential items are very close to the U.S. median. Two exceptions are transportation, which costs 21.5% more than average, and health care, which is 8.5% more affordable. 
  • The area’s reasonable cost of living is bolstered by competitive tax rates. There’s no state income tax, so seniors can keep more of the retirement benefits, and the local sales tax rate is just 1% higher than the national average. Long-term care is also less expensive than in many parts of the country.
  • Missouri City is a relatively safe location for seniors, who may be targeted by scammers more than members of other age groups. The city’s violent crime and property crime rates are well below the national average. Law enforcement agencies report just 141 crimes per 100,000 residents, compared to 379 nationally.
  • Local residents who need emergency medical care or help managing chronic medical conditions can access world-class treatment at more than 60 local hospitals. Residents are close to the nationally-ranked Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital and several other high-performing health care facilities.

Paying for Assisted Living in Missouri City

Assisted living facilities in Missouri City, Texas, charge approximately $4,750 per month, which is higher than the state and national averages.
