    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stephenville

    Stephenville, TX, is home to just 21,000 people, but it can feel much bigger for the residents in the town's eight licensed assisted living communities, thanks to the broad streets and busy shopping district downtown. The communities these seniors call home are regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services as Type A long-term care homes. Here, aging citizens can live with as much independence and privacy as their health allows, while still getting help from trained staff with the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and taking some medications. Staff also provide emergency response in case of falls or medical issues, which helps keep the residents as safe as possible.

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Stephenville

    • Stephenville's weather runs from cold and dry in the winter, when average lows of 31 degrees Fahrenheit can make outdoor activity difficult for seniors with COPD or other breathing issues, to humid summer highs averaging 95 degrees. The area gets about 31.5 inches of rainfall a year.

    • Cost of living in Stephenville is just a bit lower than elsewhere in the United States. Aging citizens who shop for themselves pay something close to 6 percent less for their food than is common elsewhere, though health care costs are just 2 percent cheaper in Stephenville.

    • Aging citizens' retirement income is subject to no income tax at all in Texas, which doesn't tax earnings for any of its residents. Locals do pay a sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent, however, in addition to the state 20 cent gas tax.

    • Crime rates in Stephenville are just over half the national rate. Violent crime is especially low in categories that most concern seniors, such as robbery and assault.

    • Public Transportation in Stephenville is provided by Central Texas Rural Transit (CARR). This service provides curb-to-curb rides for seniors, riders with disabilities and locals who just don't have cars of their own. Service must be booked at least two days in advance, and riders with mobility issues should ask about ADA-compliant vehicles at the time of booking.

    • The Stephenville area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Stephenville, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
