Assisted Living in Dallas, Texas

The eastern half of the sprawling Dallas/Fort Worth area makes up the city of Dallas and is home to about 1.3 million Texans, according to data from the 2020 U.S. Census. Approximately 10.6 percent of Dallas residents are 65 years of age or older. With its sunny summers, mild winters and below-average precipitation, this Southern city is an excellent retirement location for seniors who enjoy spending time outside.

Assisted living is often a solid option for aging adults who enjoy living as independently as they can but who also need some level of help with basic tasks such as eating and grooming. The average cost of assisted living care in Dallas is $4,195 per month, slightly over the Texas average cost but well under the national average cost.

In this guide, we’ll discuss the cost of assisted living in Dallas and how it compares to that of other cities in Texas. We’ll also look at some of the low- or no-cost resources that can help improve quality of life for the area’s elderly.
