What to Consider About Assisted Living in Weatherford
The Weatherford Chamber of Commerce hosts an annual Christmas on the Square event every December 1, which seniors from any of the six local assisted living communities are welcome to attend as either guests or vendors. Back at home, these aging citizens can expect to live as independently as their health allows, thanks to guidelines set by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which inspects and regulates the facilities in Weatherford. Services vary by the property, though they all offer room and board, group dining, emergency response for seniors and help with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as personal care and taking some medications.
Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Weatherford
Weatherford's weather swings from cold and dry, which can impact seniors with COPD or other respiratory issues, to hot and humid, which tends to keep people indoors at midday in summer. Winter lows here average 30 degrees Fahrenheit, while summer highs make it to 94 degrees. The city gets 36 inches of rain a year.
- The cost of living in Weatherford is a bit lower than the national average, which can stretch retirement income for seniors on a fixed budget. Groceries here cost around 96 percent the national average, while the cost of health care runs about 5 percent cheaper.
- Aging citizens pay no state income tax in Texas, though the government does charge a statewide sales tax of between 6.25 and 8.25 percent on most purchases. Independent seniors who still drive may face the state's 20 cent gas tax on every gallon they pay for.
Weatherford's crime rate is very low. Property crimes such as theft and burglary are less than half as common here as they are nationwide. Violent crime is even less common, which is good news for the local seniors who spend the warm evenings outdoors in the nearby parks.
- Transportation in the rural area west of Fort Worth is limited, but Public Transit Services (PTS) has recently expanded into the area to provide on-demand mobility service in vans and other smaller vehicles, most of which are ADA-compliant. Seniors who need a lift to medical office visits, or to just get out for a day of shopping, can schedule curb-to-curb service at least a day in advance.
- The Weatherford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Weatherford Regional Medical Center, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
