What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sherman

Assisted living facilities and all other long-term care are governed by the Texas Department of Aging and Disabilities (DADS), which is part of Texas Health and Human Services. It is responsible for issuing licenses and conducting inspections to ensure each facility maintains mandated care standards for all residents. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Sherman

 

  • While health care costs are slightly higher in Sherman than in other parts of the state, there are plenty of options for residents to receive quality care, including the Wilson N. Jones Regional Medical Center which has a cardiology department, stroke care center, behavioral health department and a senior gym membership option. The Baylor Scott and White Surgical Hospital has a number of surgical specialties and emergency services. Residents can access many additional medical care facilities in the nearby city of Dallas, which is just over an hour's drive from Sherman.
  • Sherman boasts a strong economy and a cost of living that is 17.1% lower than the nation's average. Some of the contributing factors that make this such an affordable place to live are the low average costs for housing, groceries and transportation. However, the cost of health care is higher than average, which could be a concern for seniors. 
  • Texas tax laws are beneficial for seniors. There is no income tax on social security or any type of retirement income. Further, Texas senior citizens are eligible for several tax exemptions for property, school and county taxes. 
  • The heat of summers in Sherman, TX might be of some concern for seniors who are sensitive to temperature, but others may favor the hot climate. Sherman gets more than the national average amount of sunny days at 227 per year, slightly more rainfall at 42.2 inches, but just 1.2 inches of snow on an annual basis. The minimal snowfall is well below the national average and is often an appealing factor for retirees looking to move to a warmer climate. 
  • Violent crime in Sherman is lower than the nation's average of 22.7 and sits at 20.9 on a 100-point scale. Property crime is another story, with a 44.5 ranking higher than the average of 35.4 across the country. While property crime is a bit higher, seniors who reside in assisted living facilities are safe and protected, as these centers are highly secure and monitored.
