Lufkin is a city located in eastern Texas about 60 miles away from the Louisiana border. Out of its 34,143 residents, approximately 14.9% are seniors. 

Several factors make the city an attractive retirement destination. The overall cost of living in Lufkin is about 25% lower than the majority of the country, and in addition to the city’s $5,000 homestead exemption, residents’ property tax rate is frozen after they turn 65. Summertime heat may be off-putting for some, but it’s historically cooler than most parts of Texas during that season. For emergency health care, the city’s seniors have two main options: St. Luke’s Health Memorial Hospital and Woodland Heights Medical Center

On average, seniors in Lufkin spend $3,863 a month on assisted living, according to the Genworth 2021 Cost of Care Survey. Compared to the statewide and national average costs for assisted living, Lufkin’s seniors save about $135 and $637 a month, respectively. Out of the nearby cities, Longview ($3,500) is among only a few with a lower median cost of care.
