What to Consider About Assisted Living in Schertz

Schertz is located in the San Antonio metropolitan area at the intersection of Bexar, Comal and Guadalupe counties. It’s close to several large military bases, so many senior citizens in Schertz are military retirees. The Schertz area has a particularly large number of assisted living facilities, with three in Schertz and 57 in nearby cities like New Braunfels. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates the licensing of assisted living facilities in that state. These facilities also include assistance with daily living activities such as eating and grooming.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Schertz

  • Schertz’s climate is generally warm and dry with a large number of sunny days each year. The average low in January is 40 degrees, and the average high in July is 94 degrees. Senior citizens will want to limit their exposure to the sun during the summer and wait for cooler weather in the spring and fall to engage in outdoor activities.

  • The overall cost of living in Schertz is three percent below the national average. Groceries are the lowest essential living expense at 14 percent below the national average, while housing is the highest expense at eight percent above the national average. Seniors who already have their housing paid should find Schertz to be an affordable place in which to live.

  • Ozone is the biggest concern in air pollution for senior citizens living in Schertz. This area is ranked 27 for high ozone days out of 227 metropolitan areas in the U.S. The particle pollution is very low, as the San Antonio-New Braunfels metropolitan area is tied for first for the cleanest metropolitan area for 24-hour pollution.

  • Schertz has a quite low overall crime rate, so senior citizens shouldn't have any particular safety concerns about living there. The annual crime rate is 2.075 per thousand people, compared to the state average of 3.194 for Texas. By comparison, the national crime rate is 2.837 per thousand people per year.

  • The Schertz Senior Center maintains a full schedule of activities for seniors Monday through Friday, including hot lunches. Regular events include fitness classes, card games and hobbies. This senior center also provides community services for seniors such as health exams.

  • Schertz has few facilities from which to choose in the event of a medical emergency or illness, with the nearest major hospital located in San Antonio.
