What to Consider About Assisted Living in Texas City

Texas City, part of the busy Houston, Texas metro area, is located along the shore of the Gulf of Mexico. Seniors who enjoy the outdoors may enjoy fishing off the Texas City Dike, the longest man-made fishing pier in the world or viewing rare birds native to the area. The population of this suburb is 48,500, 13.5 percent of which are seniors aged 65 and over. Texas City is home to 29 assisted living facilities, regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services. Two levels of assisted living are licensed in Texas: Type A for those able to evacuate on their own in an emergency and Type B serving residents who need overnight care and direction in case of an evacuation. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Texas City

  • Gulf Coast weather is hot and humid, with risks of hurricanes in the fall. Summers in Texas City are long and hot; winters are short and mild. July high temperatures average 90 degrees, and January lows are around 45. This type of weather pattern may not be conducive to some seniors.

  • The cost of living in Port Arthur is 87.8, compared to a U.S. average of 100. Grocery and healthcare costs are close to the national average; however, housing costs are only two-thirds the U.S. average. This may mean that assisted living costs are lower for seniors. 

  • Violent crime rates in Texas City are even with the national average. Property crimes, however, are about a third higher than the average. Seniors are advised to use caution and secure their belongings, especially when visiting Houston. 

  • Texas has no state income tax, meaning that retirement income and social security benefits are not subject to taxation. This means more money available for assisted living expenses. However, Texas has some of the highest rates in the nation for sales and property taxes. 

  • Texas City, 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.

  • The Texas City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Mainland Medical Center and the Texas City VA Clinic, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
