What to Consider About Assisted Living in Paris

Texas Health and Human Services regulates and licenses assisted living communities in Paris and across the state. The agency ensures seniors reside in settings that foster dignity, independence and privacy to maintain quality of life. Additionally, it provides educational resources and a facility directory to help individuals make informed care decisions. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Paris

 

  • Paris has high violent crime rates, scoring at 7.69 per 1,000 residents compared to state and national averages of 4.32 and 4. It ranks in the top 92% of safest U.S. neighborhoods. However, assisted living communities utilize security measures, including 24-hour staff and emergency response systems, to enhance resident safety. 

 

  • Paris experiences hot, muggy summers and cold, wet winters, with average year-round temperatures varying from 34 to 94 degrees Fahrenheit. June to September presents ideal weather for outdoor recreation, featuring an average daily temperature of 86 degrees. Many assisted living communities offer indoor and outdoor activities to foster resident engagement, regardless of weather. 

 

  • Texas doesn't have a state income tax, meaning Social Security benefits, retirement account withdrawals and public or private pension income are tax-free. Additionally, the state offers property tax exemptions for homeowners aged 65 and older. These tax breaks can help individuals pay for long-term care. 

 

  • Paris' cost of living lands 6.3% higher than the national median. However, it carries average lower prices for necessities, including housing, transportation and groceries, earning an overall AARP livability index score of 46. Additionally, assisted living communities offer fixed monthly rates for services, which may help with affordability. 

 

  • Paris offers health care prices nearly 10% higher than the national median and 188 physicians per 100,000 population, which falls lower than the U.S. average of 210 physicians. However, the city houses several health care facilities, including McCuistion Regional Medical Center and Paris Regional Health, a general hospital offering rehabilitative therapies, cardiology and emergency care. Some assisted living communities also offer on-site medical services or coordinate care with external providers.
