Assisted Living in Amarillo, Texas

Located along Historic Route 66, Amarillo, Texas, is in the Panhandle region of the state. The walkable downtown area harkens back to the glory days of Route 66, and the Cadillac Ranch tourist attraction is just outside of town. Seniors here can explore historic sites and go antiquing, and those who are more outdoorsy can spend time on the trails at the Palo Duro Canyon State Park. Amarillo residents see snow in the wintertime, with low temperatures averaging in the low 20s, while summers are sunny and hot, with highs reaching about 90 degrees. The cost of living is significantly lower than the national average and this, coupled with the fact that Texas doesn’t tax retirement income or SSI, may make it easier for seniors on a budget to afford assisted living. Seniors aged 65 and older make up about 13% of Amarillo’s 200,000 residents, and many of these individuals may opt to spend their Golden Years in an assisted living community.

The average assisted living fees in Amarillo are $3,500 per month, although the costs for individual facilities may vary depending on the amenities offered.

Amarillo Assisted Living Financial Assistance

Amarillo seniors may be eligible for financial assistance to help with assisted living costs. Texas Medicaid administers an assisted living waiver, which is known as the STAR+PLUS HCBS program. Recipients must be enrolled in Texas Medicaid and receive Social Security Income, and they must document that they require a nursing home-level of care. However, recipients are not required to live in a nursing home and may use the waiver to pay for services received in a community setting, such as in an assisted living facility.
