What to Consider About Memory Care in College Station

The Texas Health and Human Services Department licenses and regulates memory care communities in College Station. Besides conducting regular reviews of providers' regulatory compliance, the department serves as a valuable source of information for families considering memory care for a loved one within the state.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in College Station

 

  • College Station's cost of living aligns with the national average overall, but health care costs 10% more in the city than the U.S. norm. College Station also has a high sales tax rate of 8.25% after adding county and statewide taxes. However, Texas doesn't tax income, leaving seniors to enjoy their full Social Security benefits or retirement pensions.

 

  • Violent crime in College Station affects approximately 1.97 people per every 1,000 vs. rates of 4.55 for Texas and 4 nationwide. Property crime is slightly higher than the national median at 20.71 vs. 19 but still lower than Texas' 21.91 average.

 

  • College Station benefits from a warm climate, and seniors can expect no snowfall most years and about 40 inches of rain annually. While summer temperatures surpass the national average by almost 10 degrees Fahrenheit, the mercury rarely drops below 38.6 degrees Fahrenheit in winter, leaving the region considerably warmer than the U.S. norm of 21.7.

 

 

  • The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality assesses air quality throughout the state regularly, and College Station typically receives a good rating. The commission bases this rating on the EPA's Air Quality Index, which looks at ozone levels, particulates and various chemical pollutants to cover all bases.

Paying for Memory Care in College Station
