Austin Senior Living
Why Choose Austin
People are moving to Austin, Texas. Families are relocating for jobs, students are coming to attend Texas universities, and seniors are deciding that Austin is the right place to retire. Austin is well known for many things - a thriving economy, a strong job market, a good cost of living and now the capital of Texas is becoming known for the amenities offered to the senior population.
The website Senior Advice just published the “10 Best Cities in America for Seniors.” They ranked Austin number two on the list. Austin scored higher than both state and national averages due to our:
- Mild climate
- Limited amount of rainfall
- Active lifestyle
- Ease of access to excellent healthcare
While the summers are hot, many homes have swimming pools and the other three seasons are beautiful. Due to the limited amount of snow and rainfall, Austin is a city that is easy to drive and allows seniors the ability to get to and from destinations safely. Additionally, the mild winters allow for seniors to be outdoors to hike, bike and walk. In Austin we have the Hill Country, plenty of greenbelts, over 30 golf courses and an abundance of city parks. In Steiner Ranch, we have the world-renowned UT Golf Course and over 50 miles of hiking trails. If you are an avid water person, you can choose to live downtown near Ladybird Lake or here in Steiner Ranch near Lake Travis; whatever your passion, there are plenty of outdoor activities to keep seniors active.
Austin also has a large number of physicians that accept Medicare. We boast over 20 area hospitals – for us here in Steiner Ranch, we have a hospital – Lakeway Regional Medical – that is less than 10 miles away. Austin also has an abundance of home healthcare providers.
Financially, the economy in Austin is healthy and according to the Senior Advice website, there has not been an increase in the cost of living in several years.
Additionally, Texas allows special property tax advantages for seniors. The cost of living in Austin is affordable and below the average cost of other major metropolitans boasting similar amenities.
