    • The cost of living in Amarillo ranks at 85.1, lower than the national average of 100. This may mean that memory care costs, transportation, groceries and other expenses are more affordable here than in other Texas cities, such as Houston, where the cost of living is higher.
    • Amarillo has a relatively warm climate, with an average of 259 sunny days per year as compared to the U.S. average of 205, so residents of memory care can enjoy the outdoors. The city ranks 58 out of 100 on Sperling’s Comfort Index, while the national average is 54.

The data is based on the EPA’s Air Toxics Assessment, which measures pollution risks at a zip code level.
    • Amarillo has a violent crime rate of 52.8 and a property crime rate of 63.4.
