Texas, also known as the Lone Star State, is the second most-populated state behind only California. Its largest cities are Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and Fort Worth. Famous for its rolling vistas, vibrant economy and culture, welcoming atmosphere and rich history, Texas' state motto is friendship. The state flower is the bluebell, and the state bird is the northern mockingbird, which embodies the state's fighting spirit. In the words of the Texas legislature, the mockingbird is "a fighter for the protection of his home, falling, if need be, in its defense, like any true Texan."

What is Assisted Living?

The state of Texas defines assisted living communities as providing a home-like environment for four or more resident seniors who need personalized health supports and Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) assistance, focused on "personal dignity, autonomy, independence and privacy." Communities can range in scale from large apartment or condominium-style complexes to personal residences. The state licenses three different types of communities — Type A, B and C — based on the level of medical and daily care support that residents need, and on whether they can physically evacuate the facility in a time of emergency.

What does Assisted Living Cost in Texas?

In Texas, the average monthly cost of assisted living is $3,500, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey.

Texas is an increasingly popular destination for assisted living, with more than 1,500 communities throughout the state. Popular major cities for assisted living in Texas are Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth. Top-rated facilities can also be found in some of the state's smaller cities and towns, including Corpus Christi, Abilene, Amarillo, Converse, Flower Mound and Frisco.

Texas' aging citizen population is growing at a rate faster than the national average. Between the turn of the century and 2014, the state's senior population grew at a rate of 49.5 percent, and it's projected to more than double by the year 2030.

How is Assisted Living in Texas Regulated?

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services requires the state's more than 1,845 assisted living communities to be licensed according to strict standards. There are high expectations for:

  • Training and accreditation of staff
  • Food and hygiene quality
  • Maintenance and regular inspection of the facility
  • Quality medical care and ADL assistance in keeping with the type of community being licensed
  • Compliance with federal laws such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Housing Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Rehabilitation Act of 1993 and the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993
  • A transparent, secure and anonymous process for submitting resident reviews and complaints

All forms of long-term care in Texas require the residents to retain the fullest autonomy over their financial and social affairs and medical decisions of which they're capable, and for communities to be transparent and honest with them in these dealings without fail.

A complete directory of the services and regulations provided by Texas' Department of Health and Human Services can be found here. A comprehensive directory of assisted living communities in the state can be found here.

The state supports an ombudsman program for residents' rights for those in assisted living and other kinds of communities. A copy of the Bill of Rights for assisted living community residents can be found here.

How is Assisted Living in Texas Affected by Laws and Taxes?

Texas is a tax-friendly state for retirees. Social Security income, pension income and withdrawals from retirement accounts are not taxed, and there is no state income tax. A handy tax calculator can be accessed here, and a guide to the impact of recent tax legislation can be found here.

In addition, there are a number of different supports provided to help aging citizens deal with taxes and access the benefits, exemptions and deferments for which they may be eligible. In particular:

The Internal Revenue Service provides Tax Counseling for the Edlerly (TCE), as well as free tax return preparation for those with disabilities or other qualifying preconditions.

The Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts office provides property tax deferments and exemptions for people aged 65 and older.

You and your loved ones can consult this page for rates and ratings of assisted living communities in Texas. The state has many senior move managers who can help make the transition to an assisted living community painless.

When you work with our Seniorly Guides to find a home to love, this is always a free service for families. The Seniorly Guide is compensated directly from the community you eventually select in Texas.

Politics in Texas

Texas was an independent republic between 1836 and 1845, and it was the only state in the Union to join by treaty instead of annexation. Traces of that independence can still be seen in the way the state operates today. For example, public land in Texas is owned by the state rather than the federal government, and any modifications requested from Washington can only proceed with state permission.

The Lone Star State is undergoing major changes as a result of migration. Like the rest of America, it is growing more ethnically diverse than ever before, and a trend toward bigger population and more diversity is projected to continue over the next 30 years. It should transform the political landscape from being a solid Republican Party state to one of bipartisan environment.

Fun Facts About Texas

  • Texas is known for warm weather, Southern hospitality, bustling cities and a laissez-faire attitude toward the law and the economy. The state's affordability, favorable environment for jobs and a light state tax burden has made it a popular destination for interstate migration: It added the most new residents of any state in 2017.
  • If Texas was a country of its own, it would be a world resource superpower. It would rank as the fifth-largest petroleum-producing nation, and a rising renewable energy producer that derives almost a fifth of its power from wind and solar energy. Ninety percent of the world's recoverable helium can be found under Amarillo. The state runs three of its own power grids, and remains a surprisingly large producer of lumber, as well.
  • Texas' colorful history has seen more national flags fly over the state than any other. There were periods of Spanish, French, Mexican, independence and Confederate rule before the state finally joined the Union. The last battle of the Civil War — the Battle of Palmito Ranch — was fought in Texas and was a Confederate victory, though the larger Confederate cause was already lost. As a quirk of the vast state's complicated history, Texas has the legal right to subdivide into five smaller states if it chose to exercise it.
