The 8 Best Assisted Living Facilities in Waco, TX
The Old West is still alive in many ways in Waco, a medium-sized Texas city that’s located about halfway between Austin and Houston on I-35. The Waco Downtown Cultural District spans both sides of the Brazos River and contains some of the most lovingly preserved 19th-century homes in central Texas. Seniors can see the sights at a discount in Waco aboard the ADA-equipped buses of the Waco Transit System (WTS). All seniors aged 65 and over qualify for half fare on regular WTS routes with a valid transit ID.
Nearly 12% of Waco’s 138,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and over. Waco’s warm winters and dry summers create a stable climate that escapes some of central Texas’ summer humidity, though occasional thunderstorms still occur on a moment’s notice. When the temperature gets high enough, seniors qualify for discounted admission to the local Dr. Pepper Museum & Free Enterprise Institute, which educates thousands of visitors per year about the history of Dr. Pepper and the positive aspects of market capitalism.
Assisted living in Waco costs an average of $3,695 per month, according to the 2018 Genworth Cost of Care Survey. This is $100 per month below the Texas state average of $3,795. Seniors pay an average of $4,000 elsewhere in the U.S. for similar services.
