Part of the United States’ fifth-largest metropolitan area, also known as Greater Houston, Spring offers seniors a small-town charm and suburban feel with the convenience of easy access to Houston’s many museums and cultural attractions. In Old Spring, seniors with an affinity for antiques, historic architecture and lively community festivals can spend afternoons exploring the area’s numerous shops and art galleries or attending one of the city’s annual events. Seniors who enjoy spending time outdoors can take advantage of Spring’s warm Texas climate with winter temperatures that rarely dip below 42 degrees to visit Pundt Park and the Cypresswood Golf Club.
Along with its friendly atmosphere and often-comfortable weather, Spring has a low violent crime rate and a slightly lower-than-average cost of living. With assisted living fees in the area averaging just $3,750 per month, we thought it’d be a good idea to share what we consider to be Spring’s top 10 assisted living facilities.
