What to Consider About Assisted Living in Pasadena
At least two songs have been recorded that refer to the northern Houston suburb of Pasadena, TX, as "Pasa-gets-down-dena," in honor of the drop-of-the-cowboy-hat approach this town takes toward scheduling public dances, shindigs and assorted other Country-themed get-togethers. Seniors from the area's 75 assisted living communities are welcome to attend these events, and many local communities schedule at least occasional trips for the whole group, health permitting.
Assisted living in Pasadena, and the rest of the state, is regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which regularly inspects facilities to ensure quality of care and living standards are observed. Seniors who live in these communities have 24-hour emergency response and room and board, plus staff assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and taking some medications.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Pasadena
- Weather in Pasadena is the same as the weather in neighboring Houston. Winter lows average 44 degrees Fahrenheit, while highs average 93 degrees in summer. The warm temperatures can be challenging for seniors who go out in the hottest part of the season.
- Seniors in Pasadena can save somewhat on the items they buy. Groceries here cost 84 percent the typical cost elsewhere, while health care is 3 percent cheaper for seniors in town.
- Aging citizens' retirement funds are safe from state-level taxation in Texas, which charges no income tax on its residents. There is a sales tax, however, of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent of the price of most goods. Drivers pay 20 cents extra at the pump because of the state's gas tax.
Crime in Pasadena almost perfectly tracks the national rates in general, though the town is a little high in property crimes and low in the violent crimes seniors need to be wary of.
Harris County Transit (HCT) currently handles public transportation for the Pasadena area, though plans to restore a local carrier have been slowly creeping forward since 2016. Seniors on HCT ride at a discount with valid ID, as do riders with disabilities.
- The Pasadena area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Bayshore Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
