Assisted Living in Waco, Texas

Waco is located in central Texas, along the Brazos River and about halfway between Dallas and Austin. The community is home to a few interesting museums, including the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and the Dr. Pepper Museum. Seniors may receive discounted admission to these and to the Waco Zoo, which features a lion and meerkat habitat on the Texas plains. Weather in Waco is warm year-round, and while summers are hot, winters have little snow, which seniors who have health conditions aggravated by colder weather may appreciate. The cost of living is more than 20 points lower than the national average, and cheaper housing, plus a lack of state income tax in Texas, may make it easier for seniors on a tight budget to better afford their preferred assisted living accommodations. 

The average monthly assisted living fees in Waco are $3,590 per month, although individual facilities vary according to the amenities each offers.
