Cost of living in Plano

Plano is an affluent area and is one of the most expensive places to live in Texas, although it’s slightly less expensive than Dallas. The cost of living in Plano in 2023 was 26% higher than the rest of Texas, and 21% higher than the national average.[02] Despite Plano having a high cost of living, its assisted living facilities cost less than the national average.[01]

Texas doesn’t tax income, including income from Social Security or pensions. This means despite Plano’s higher-than-average cost of living, some seniors may save money moving to Plano because of the tax breaks. Texas also doesn’t levy inheritance taxes, making Plano a haven for seniors who want to leave a sizeable sum to their loved ones.[03]

VA benefits for assisted living in Plano
8043

Approximate number of veterans living in Plano as of 2021

About 30% of Plano veterans are 75+

With nearly 2,400 Plano veterans who are 75 or older, you won’t be the only one looking into VA benefits to help cover the cost of assisted living.[04]

You can start by checking your eligibility for the VA Pension, a monthly amount paid out to qualified veterans. In addition to that, you might be able to receive the Aid and Attendance benefit. This benefit puts extra money on top of your monthly Pension check.

Collin County provides a list of Texas veterans benefits you can check to see if anything else applies to your situation. The Area Agency on Aging of North Texas provides a helpful video on VA Pension Benefits: How to Use Them to Help Pay for Long-Term Care.

Get help applying for VA benefits

The most difficult part of claiming VA benefits can be understanding and completing your application. Veterans service officers are ready to help. These people provide free assistance to veterans with the application process. You can find these trained experts through the Veterans Administration, Collin County Veteran Services, or Plano area veterans service organizations (VSOs), such as the American Legion.

The Texas Veterans Commission has Claims Benefit Advisors who can help fill out VA paperwork and file claims. In-person meetings have a wait time of at least 30 days, but there is only about a three-day wait for a phone appointment.

Plano Medicaid for assisted living

Medicaid is a federal and state-sponsored health insurance program and doesn’t cover most assisted living costs. In Texas, Medicaid is run by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. Seniors over 65 can enroll in the STAR+Plus HCBS (home and community-based services waiver) program, which provides Medicaid coverage for long-term care services. Enrollees in the STAR+Plus program are still responsible for paying for their rent and meals in their senior living community.

If you are at least 65 years old and already on Medicare, Medicaid for the Elderly and People with Disabilities (MEPD) is also an option. MEPD can cover regular health care expenses like doctor visits, but it can also cover long-term services like home and personal care.

Help applying for Texas Medicaid

To get started with your Medicaid application, go to the Your Texas Benefits portal. If you need more help, you can contact the North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center, which serves both Collin and Denton Counties. The center assists seniors and their families with applying for Medicaid at no cost. You can also reach out to the long-term care ombudsman with questions.

Medicare assisted living coverage in Plano

The federal government provides health insurance through Medicare for those who are 65+ or have qualifying disabilities. You won’t be able to cover the monthly costs of assisted living with Medicare. Medicare is designed to help seniors pay for medical care services. Medicare outlines covered services, but in general, it will only pay for services, items, or procedures that are medically necessary and short-term.

Medicare cost savings are also available through Medicare Savings Programs (MSP) and Extra Help. Just like it sounds, Extra Help provides extra assistance with the coverage of medication costs, while MSPs can cover or reduce Medicare copayments and even premiums.

You can sign up online for Medicare or go in person to the nearest Social Security Administration (SSA) office, which is in McKinney. If you want to take a paper copy of an application with you, you can download the enrollment forms.

Help applying for Medicare in Plano

The Texas Health Information, Counseling, and Advocacy Program (HICAP) provides the Texas Medicare Helpline to give you access to free one-on-one Medicare advisors. Benefits counselors are also available through the North Central Texas Aging and Disability Resource Center. The long-term care ombudsman can also answer your questions.

Plano laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

Texas assisted living facilities are licensed and regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. The department defines assisted living facilities (ALFs) as establishments that offer residents room and board, supervision, personal care, and medication administration.

You can find all assisted living regulations in the Texas Administrative Code and Health and Safety Code.

Licensing

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services licenses and inspects all ALFs in the state. ALFs can obtain two types of licenses. A Type A license is for facilities where residents typically don’t require assistance during the night and can follow instructions in case of an emergency. On the other hand, a Type B license is intended for facilities where residents do, in fact, require some overnight assistance and would need help evacuating during an emergency. In Texas, no ALFS can admit residents who need around-the-clock medical care.

Inspections

Assisted living facilities in Texas get inspected about every two years. These inspections help ensure compliance in two critical areas: health and safety.

The health inspection verifies that the facility maintains staffing levels, has required training programs, and ensures staff members have passed criminal background checks. It also looks for anything that could potentially hurt the health of the residents. For instance, the life safety code inspection assesses whether the building has precautions that lower the risks of emergencies, such as fires or flooding.

Resident rights

To ensure transparency and protection, ALFs in Plano must give each resident a copy of the Residents’ Bill of Rights and display it prominently in the facility. Within two weeks of a resident’s arrival, the ALF should create an individualized service plan (ISP) that outlines the needed care and how the ALF will meet those needs.

Texas offers a long-term care provider search portal. You can access inspection reports, complaint information, and additional details about assisted living facilities in the state.

What assisted living is like in Plano

If you want the comfort of an assisted living facility in a peaceful area with easy access to big-city amenities, Plano has you covered. Plano is an affluent suburb of the Dallas-Forth Worth area.

Local assisted living facilities reflect a quiet luxury with top-notch caregivers, excellent meals, and an understated elegance. In this section, we cover what assisted living in Plano is really like according to communities, residents, and family members.

Assisted living is a hassle-free senior living option for people over 65 who need a little extra help during the day, but don’t need around-the-clock assistance. It’s perfect for seniors who may need help moving from room to room or remembering to take their medication.

Seniors with dementia are better suited for Plano’s memory care communities. People who need medical attention or who are unable to get out of bed themselves may be a good fit for a local skilled nursing facility. Active adults who want a larger living space and more flexibility might prefer an independent living community in Plano.

Options to suit your needs

A Place for Mom partners with 67 assisted living facilities in the Plano area.[01] Not all assisted living facilities in Plano offer the same experience, so you can choose the one that best suits your needs. Most communities are traditional, which means they have more than 25 residents and offer only personal care. About half of assisted living communities in Plano also offer memory care services, although memory care does come at a higher price.

A small group of our partner assisted living facilities in Plano are residential care homes, which offer the same services as traditional assisted living communities but do it from a residential home. Residential care homes typically have no more than eight residents at a time, and caregivers may live in the home with the residents. While these offer the same care services and are licensed in the same way, they tend to be somewhat less expensive than larger facilities.

Seniors who want access to different types of care and more social opportunities may prefer traditional assisted living communities. Those who are looking to save some money and enjoy the familiar setting of a residential home may be better suited to a residential care home.

Independence with assistance for the perfect blend

Individual choice and personal preferences are top of mind at our partner Plano assisted living facilities, no matter which one you choose. For example, you can enjoy restaurant-style dining, take room service, or stop by an on-site bistro. Options like low-sodium diets and vegetarian meals are also commonly offered.

In addition to housekeeping and laundry service, some of our partner facilities also offer dry cleaning, grocery shopping, and errand services. Keep in mind that these extra services tend to be offered only at the larger traditional assisted living facilities.

Things to do in Plano for seniors and their families

There are plenty of fun things to do in Plano, but you can also head into Dallas for even more activities. All of our partner assisted living facilities in Plano offer daily and weekly activities for the residents. These can range from visiting choirs to movie nights to BINGO games. Many communities also take residents on field trips to local museums or performances. Family and friends are also encouraged to visit and take their loved ones on regular excursions.

Explore Plano

You can start out in Downtown Plano Arts District, where you’ll find events such as the Third Thursday Sip and Shop or a Jazz Concert Under the Starz. Nearby Haggard Park is a great place for a stroll or relaxing in the gazebo taking in the lakeside views. While you’re there, you can wander over to the Interurban Railway Museum, where admission is free!

Explore the historic grounds of the Heritage Farmstead Museum. This facility brings the North Texas Blackland Prairie to life.

Get outside

Local seniors enjoy the 800-acre Oak Point Park and Nature Preserve, which has a lake for fishing and miles of trails for a nice stroll. Eight miles of the trail system are concrete, which is perfect if you are looking for something wheelchair accessible. Another great Plano park is Bob Woodruff Park North, where you can enjoy a fishing pier and trails and do some people-watching in the equestrian area, where you can enjoy seeing horses, too.

There’s no shortage of places to get out and drive a golf ball if that’s something you enjoy. Check out a few of the beautiful fairways you can find in Plano:

Branch out

Do a little sightseeing by heading just north of Plano to the Southfork Ranch. It bills itself as the World’s Most Famous Ranch, because it’s been seen by millions of people on T.V. as the Ewing mansion on the show “Dallas.”

Speaking of Dallas, history buffs will want to head into Dallas and check out the George W. Bush Presidential Center. It’s not only a Presidential library and museum, it is also a gorgeous 15-acre prairie and a Texas rose garden. For even more presidential history, head over to Dealy Plaza and visit The Sixth Floor Museum, located inside the former Texas School Book Depository from where President John F. Kennedy was assassinated.

If sports are more your thing, there are plenty of options to enjoy. Get a behind-the-scenes look at pro football by taking a tour of AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys. You can also take in a game and root for the Cowboys, the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, the NHL’s Dallas Stars, or the MLB’s Texas Rangers.

To be amazed by nature, you won’t want to miss the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens, where you’ll see more than a million colorful plants and flowers along with beautiful water features and sculptures. Wheelchairs and trams are available, making the gardens accessible. Seniors get discounted admission.
