Costs of independent living in the Arlington area

Average rent is around $2,419 per month at an Arlington independent living community, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022-2023 proprietary data.[01] This figure only accounts for rent, so you may pay more or less depending on your chosen add-on services. Rent is also affected by the community’s location, floor plan, and on-site amenities.

This price may seem steep when compared to senior apartments in the area, but that’s because independent living communities typically offer more on-site services and amenities. Independent living communities offer an additional level of convenience and entertainment than typical apartments. Below is a list of on-site amenities and services typically included in monthly rent at our partner independent living communities in Arlington, Texas:

  • Dining plans with meals and snacks daily
  • On-site resident activities (social groups, parties, game nights, fitness classes, etc.)
  • On-site amenities (fitness centers, pools, social lounges, business centers, etc.)
  • Weekly housekeeping services
  • Standard landscaping and maintenance
  • Transportation services
  • Concierge services

The following amenities and services are also common at our partner independent living communities in Arlington, but they typically come at an additional cost:

  • Covered parking or private garages
  • Pet rent and grooming fees
  • Roommate/second-occupant fees
  • Additional storage spaces
  • On-site salon/barbershop services
  • On-site snacks, refreshments, and cocktails

How seniors pay for independent living in Arlington

Seniors typically pull together their personal income and retirement resources to cover independent living costs in Arlington, Texas. Seniors who served in the U.S. military may also qualify for VA benefits to offset some living costs. Many seniors also qualify for Social Security benefits, which can be used to pay for costs of living. If care needs arise, seniors may turn to Medicaid, Medicare, or long-term care insurance programs to pay for in-home health care services. With certain programs, qualifying health care services can be provided wherever the senior calls home, like within an independent living community.

Below, you’ll learn more about all of these resources. In each section, you’ll find local contact information and websites for programs to help you access such benefits. Learn how these private and public payment methods can be used to cover costs of living as well as potential long-term care costs in independent living facilities.

  • Selling a house. Seniors moving into an independent living community are often looking to downsize, resulting in the sale of their house. A house sale could free up some cash to help cover independent living expenses.
  • Reverse mortgage. If selling your house isn’t a feasible option, you could take out a reverse mortgage. This option allows you to borrow from your home equity to cover some independent living costs.
  • Life insurance. If you’re enrolled in a life insurance plan, you might be able to sell, surrender, or borrow from your policy to pay for senior living expenses.

Approximate number of veterans living in Arlington as of 2021

About 47% of Arlington veterans are 65+.

Can I use veterans benefits to pay for independent living?

If you’re a veteran or a surviving spouse, you may qualify for benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help with your costs of living and care needs in Arlington. Disabled veterans particularly benefit from the generous Aid and Attendance benefit. This benefit can be added to an existing VA pension to cover anything that improves an eligible senior’s quality of life — which could include rent or services at independent living communities in Arlington.

Do I qualify for veterans benefits?

Eligibility and applying for VA benefits is complex, so it’s best practice to reach out to a local veterans service organization (VSO) for benefit advice before applying. These organizations are nonprofits, vetted by the VA to help veterans find their most suitable benefit options. Such organizations can help veterans successfully file a benefit claim, appeal a denied claim, and provide veterans advocacy in the benefit application process.

How do I obtain veterans benefits in Arlington, Texas?

Arlington residents are in luck because almost all of the city’s veterans service organizations (VSOs) are run from one office — Tarrant County Veterans Service Office. At this office, a veteran service officer can connect senior veterans to local, regional, and national services offered by VSOs like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), and others.

You can contact the Tarrant County Veterans Services Office to receive benefits assistance in Arlington with the contact and website information provided below. You’ll also find a link to find VFW posts in your area, as well as some useful online guides to learn more about veterans benefits for seniors.

Medicaid and Medicare

Neither Medicaid nor Medicare can be used to pay for rent, as they are health insurance programs. They can instead be used to help cover some long-term care costs, like in-home health care services, should you need them at an independent living community. You’ll learn more about accessing Medicaid and Medicare as a senior in Texas below.

What is Texas’ Medicaid program and do I qualify?

Texas’ Medicaid program for seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities is called STAR+PLUS. It’s operated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). It covers some long-term health care and medically necessary in-home health care services within a patient’s residence of choice.

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must not exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for STAR+PLUS:[03]

  • $2,742 as an individual
  • $5,484 as a couple
How can I use Medicaid for care needs in my home?

STAR+PLUS offers a home and community based services (HCBS) waiver program to help seniors remain in the residential setting of their choice while receiving care. This program helps seniors avoid institutional settings, like hospitals or nursing homes, by providing medically necessary in-home health care services through Medicaid-verified agencies or caregivers. The services can be provided in an independent living community, if that’s what the senior already calls home. However, you should check with your prospective community’s policies beforehand, as they may have a policy on their residents’ ability to care for themselves.

Care costs that may be covered by Medicaid’s HCBS program can include the following:

  • Personal care services
  • Home health care services
  • Respite care services
  • Rehabilitative or hospice care services
  • Medical supplies and modifications in the home

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must meet the following requirements to qualify for the HCBS waiver program:[04]

  • Meet STAR+PLUS’ income requirements
  • Require an institutional level of care typically found in nursing homes

In Texas, seniors can access Medicaid services using several means. With the resources section we provide below, you can contact a Medicaid benefits office near you, apply online, or read online guides to learn more.

Can I use Medicare to pay for independent living costs?

No, but you can use Medicare to pay for health care services. Seniors who are 65+ and/or have a disability may qualify for Medicare in Texas. Even though Medicare doesn’t cover costs of living at an independent living facility, it can help cover several medical care services. Medicare-covered medical services can include the following:

  • Hospital stays
  • Hospice care
  • Certain doctors’ services
  • Outpatient care
  • Medical supplies
  • Preventive care
  • Rehabilitative care

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed the following income requirements to qualify for Texas Medicare:[03]

  • $1,215 for gross monthly income and $9,090 for resources as an individual
  • $1,643 for gross monthly income and $13,630 for resources as a couple

Resources include all of your assets, like your savings accounts, properties, investments, etc.

To further save on Medicare Parts A and B premiums, deductibles, copayments, and/or coinsurance, seniors can apply for the Texas Medicare Savings Program. As of 2023, seniors mustn’t exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for the Texas Medicare Savings Program:[03]

  • $1,133 as an individual
  • $1,526 as a couple

Medicare-eligible seniors in Arlington can find assistance with their Medicare benefits, legal advice, and referrals by utilizing the resources section below. You can also visit the federal Medicare website or dial 2-1-1 for more information.

What if I qualify for both Medicaid and Medicare?

If you’re an Arlington resident who meets qualifications for both Medicare and Medicaid, you may qualify for dual coverage. Texas offers a joint Medicare-Medicaid Plan (MMP) called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project for six counties — with Tarrant County being one of them. This project is commonly referred to as “the Demonstration,” and it aims to provide the following:

  • Improved health care service coordination
  • Enhanced quality of care services
  • Eliminated cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid
  • Reduced costs for the state and federal governments

To qualify, a senior must meet these eligibility requirements:

  • Be enrolled in Texas’ STAR+PLUS program for a minimum of 30 days
  • Have Medicare Parts A, B, and D, as well as receive full Medicaid benefits

Qualifying seniors should automatically be enrolled in the Demonstration and receive a notifying enrollment letter in the mail. If you’d like to opt out, you can follow the instructions provided in the letter. For additional information on the program, you can email managed_care_initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

In Arlington, Texas, there are several local programs and organizations to help you navigate Medicaid and Medicare. Below, you’ll find Medicaid and Medicare applications, local organizations that can assist you with your applications, and other resources to help you better understand your options.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for independent living communities

Arlington independent senior living communities are not regulated by a state agency, unless they share a building or campus with an assisted living care facility. Stand-alone independent living communities — those without shared assisted living spaces — have the same regulations as general apartment complexes. This means they must comply with general Texas housing and rental standards, such as the Texas Property Code and Fair Housing Act.

Housing laws and regulations like these help ensure that residents of any rental community are not discriminated against and are provided with safe, well-maintained housing. Additionally, most Texas independent living communities have a minimum age requirement of 55, with some raising it to 62.

Regulations for independent living communities with assisted living units

If an independent living community shares its building or campus with an assisted living unit, the area designated for assisted living and any shared areas must follow assisted living facility regulations. Assisted living regulations are set by Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) to help ensure a suitable environment for aging seniors. If you’d like to learn more about Texas’ assisted living regulations, visit the laws and regulations section on our Arlington assisted living page.

Regulations for stand-alone independent living facilities

In Texas, stand-alone independent living communities are only required to comply with the state’s housing and apartment regulations for landlords and tenants. This means landlords must grant tenants some specific rights, provide disability accommodations, and maintain all facilities. Below, you’ll learn about your rights as a resident in an independent living rental community.

What are my rights as an independent living tenant in Arlington, Texas?

Knowing your tenants’ rights will help you find a safe and satisfactory living situation while you rent. Here’s a brief overview of some important tenants’ rights in Texas:[05]

  • Residents have the right to ask their landlord to repair structural problems that risk their health and safety. And, landlords must make a diligent effort to repair the problems at hand.
  • Residents may terminate their lease if a problem that affects their health hasn’t been resolved after two notices to the landlord within a reasonable timeframe — usually seven days.
  • Residents may hire an external contractor to fix the problems at hand, if their landlord fails to resolve issues after multiple notices within a reasonable timeframe. Residents can then submit their expenses to the landlord to deduct from their rent.

Before attempting to terminate a lease or hiring an external contractor, it’s strongly recommended that tenants reach out to an attorney or a local tenants association for advice. Consulting a housing expert will prevent you from breaching any lease agreements, and will ultimately lead you to the end result you desire. It’s also recommended that tenants provide multiple written notices to their landlord and keep a copy of each notice as proof.[05]

If you’re seeking more information on your rights as a senior apartment tenant, be sure to read the Texas Tenants’ Rights Handbook.

Can I ask for disability-related accommodations and modifications in an independent living community in Arlington?

In Texas, federal nondiscrimination laws — such as the Fair Housing Act, Section 504, and Americans with Disabilities Act (or ADA) — protect tenants from being discriminated against due to their disability. These laws also require housing providers to provide reasonable accommodations and modifications in housing, programs, and activities for individuals with disabilities.

If you’re a senior with a disability, you have the right to request reasonable accommodations and modifications within your independent living community. Reasonable accommodations are defined as changes to facility policies and could include the following:[06]

  • Allowing a service animal to live with a resident, even when there’s a no-pets policy in place
  • Assigning a parking spot for easy entry to the resident’s building
  • Changing the due date of rent to reflect a resident’s disability income payment dates

Modifications are structural changes to common areas and individual units. Some examples of reasonable modifications in line with the ADA include the following:[06]

  • Installing a specialized smoke detector for a resident with a hearing impairment
  • Adding a wheelchair ramp to enable a disabled resident to easily access shared spaces and participate in resident activities
  • Installing grab bars or widening doorways in a resident’s unit to accommodate wheelchair users

These nondiscrimination laws apply to all rental communities in Arlington. Property owners are required to pay for such modifications unless providing them would pose an undue financial or administrative burden. If you’d like more information, see this detailed infographic on reasonable accommodations and modifications for Texas renters.

Who do I contact for additional questions or concerns while renting in Arlington, Texas?

For general concerns, Arlington offers an overview of tenant rights on its city website. If you have further questions regarding a lease or contract, the city recommends that renters reach out to the following agencies:

You can also find rental inspection scores for apartments in the greater Arlington area on the Arlington and Fort Worth city websites. You can search for your prospective rental community by name or address to find its most recent inspection date and score. Keep in mind the different ways of scoring properties between Arlington and Fort Worth:

  • In Arlington, inspection scores are out of 100. Scores above 90 are considered well above average, and scores below 70 are considered below average. Below-average rental properties in Arlington must correct their deficiencies or face noncompliance, reinspection fees.
  • In Fort Worth, the inspection scale is a bit different. The city scores rental properties out of a total 125. Anything below 100 means a rental community has failed its most recent inspection. After a failing score, rental communities typically have 30 days to correct their violations and receive a passing score.

COVID-19 regulations for Arlington independent living communities

Due to the overall decline in COVID-19 infections, Arlington doesn’t have any COVID-19 regulations in place for stand-alone independent living facilities. Nonetheless, Arlington residents can visit the coronavirus informational page on the city’s official website to get the latest news regarding local outbreaks, vaccinations, COVID-19 testing, and more.

On the other hand, an independent living community that shares spaces with an assisted living facility must comply with assisted living facility-specific standards. The Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) requires assisted living facilities to set their own infection prevention and control measures for common infections, including COVID-19. These measures may include a community’s hygiene practices, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), disinfection and sterilization techniques, safe injection methods, and physical distancing requirements.

Because communities are allowed to set their own standards, it’s best to check with your prospective community directly to see how they’re handling COVID-19.
