    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Porter

    The town of Porter, Texas, is a small community considered part of the Houston metro area. A quieter area, Porter is still close enough to Houston's city center to provide entertainment, shopping, access to public transportation and medical care. Many seniors enjoy the shopping and dining options along the waterway or visits to the newly opened Glade Cultural Center.

    There are seven assisted living communities in Porter and nearly 100 in the greater Houston area. These facilities are regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Senior Services, which bases licenses on the level of care residents require. Assisted living facilities are considered Type A facilities, meaning that residents are able to evacuate without assistance in an emergency and do not require overnight supervision. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Porter

    • Weather along the Gulf Coast, where Porter is located, means long, hot summers and winters with no snow. Seniors who are sensitive to the heat may not enjoy living here, although the warmer winters are a respite for aging joints. July average high temperatures are 96 degrees and average January lows are 44. 
    • The cost of living in Porter is 105.1, compared to a U.S. average of 100. Healthcare and grocery costs are slightly lower than the national average; however, housing is slightly higher. Assisted living fees here may be less than other suburbs in the Houston metro area as lower housing costs may influence operating costs. 
    • Crime rates in Porter are close to the national average. While violent crimes are slightly higher, property crimes, including petty theft and car break-ins, are lower. 
    • Porter is part of the Houston's Metro public transportation system, which operates throughout the city and suburbs. Seniors and those with a qualifying disability may be eligible for reduced rates. 
    • Porter, as part of the greater Houston area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital and Houston Methodist hospital branches, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Porter, as a suburb of Houston, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
