    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sherman

    The first post office in Sherman, TX, was a man's jacket slung over a branch of the pecan tree in the town square with letters stuffed in the pockets. Today, the site is occupied by a more solid structure that sits across the street from the courthouse where the tree used to be, and where aging citizens from the town's nine assisted living communities can pass the time on the large stone benches. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates assisted living communities in Sherman with an eye toward ensuring high-quality care and maximum independence for residents. Staff at these communities offer assistance with normal activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, taking some medications and meal prep, as well as emergency response and coordinating group activities on the property. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sherman

    • Weather in Sherman averages 33 degrees Fahrenheit in winter, when a maximum of 1 inch of snow falls in some years. Summer highs of 93 degrees can be challenging for some seniors, who might spend the worst of the heat in the air conditioned indoors.

    • The cost of living in Sherman is not high by national standards. Seniors who buy groceries in Sherman pay just 91 percent what the cost is elsewhere, and health care can be up to 6 percent cheaper than the national average. Transportation is especially affordable here, where most people pay just 93 percent the median cost elsewhere in the country.

    • There's no income tax on wages or retirement income in Texas, though aging citizens who do their own shopping are bound to notice the sales tax, which runs between 6.25 and 8.25 percent of most items' cost. There's also a 20 cent gas tax in Texas that can raise the cost of independent seniors' road trips.

    • Crime in Sherman is around half as common as the national average. Even better, most of the crime here is against property, rather than people, which keeps the city's parks safe for aging citizens enjoying an evening outdoors.
    • TAPS Public Transit offers scheduled service to riders from nearly any address in the Sherman area. Seniors who want to use the service must schedule rides in advance and ask for an ADA-compliant vehicle, if needed. TAPS provides curb-to-curb service on demand, with door-to-door service available by special request.

    • The Sherman area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Baylor Scott & White Surgical Hospital at Sherman, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
