Find Senior Services in Houston, Texas

"Houston, we have a problem!"  No, actually not really.  In general, Texas is a great place to live for retirees, but Houston might make a case for the best city to retire throughout the entire The Lone Star State.  Why? For starters, the weather stays on average between 50-85 degrees, so you will never have to worry about shoveling snow or slipping on ice again.  Sure, Houston is known for several blistering summer months where the heat and humidity can be pretty scorching.  To escape the heat, simply cruise down to the beach in Galveston and take a dip in the fresh Gulf Coast sea water, or go boating on Lake Houston or Trinity Bay.  

Furthermore, most people are unaware that Houston is a top 5 biggest city in the United States, and the largest Southern City in the nation.  Thus, for seniors looking to stay active and busy, the “Space City” offers limitless culture, history, and entertainment.  Daytime activities including the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston Museum of Natural Science, Cockrell Butterfly Center, and the list goes on.  For nighttime fun, Houston is booming with an influx of local bars and hip new restaurants, not only downtown, but also in dynamic neighborhoods such as Montrose, River Oaks, and The Woodlands.   You can always find tickets to year-round sporting games, as Houston is home to 3 Major Sporting Teams including the Astros (baseball), Texan (football), and Rocket (basketball).  Or, if you love the energy of marching bands and college students with painted faces, then go on campus to watch live games at Rice University, University of Houston, or Houston Baptist University.  

Regardless if you are a senior who is still working or already retired, it is important the city you call home during your golden years contains great healthcare options, as seniors tend to spend almost double on healthcare than any other age group.  The University of Texas M.D Anderson Cancer Center is nationally recognized as one of the best hospitals for cancer care, and Houston Methodist Hospital is one of the top hospitals for geriatric care in all of Texas.  Unfortunately, many seniors also will eventually require ongoing senior care such as assisted living, home care, or skilled nursing.  To the left is a comprehensive directory of services with over 50 categories for aging adult adults.   Senior Directory also has FREE Care Advisors at 1-800-955-8510 who can help you compare costs and services of different senior care providers.
