Giddings, Texas

Independent Living

For many seniors, the cost burden of home ownership might be a deterrent to an independent life. Independent Living Communities offer a solid alternative. You or your loved one may continue to use their free time as they desire while their food is cooked by a professional chef, housekeeping and laundry duties are handled by staff, and social activities are scheduled and organized. Along with their daily needs being met, residents can enjoy an opportunity to live among peers, surrounded by others of similar ages and interests. Residents' quarters consist of private living spaces, each with their own kitchen. The independence of apartment life is still enjoyed, offering opportunities to socialize with guests and visitors in a private and personal setting. While policies differ between locations, a number of residences allow cats and dogs as well. Nursing and health care services may always be arranged for with independent care providers if desired. There are a variety of expenses and benefits to consider while choosing an independent living community. It is important to figure out if these services are covered in the service plan: wellness program, meals, utilities, move-in fee, laundry, cable TV, housekeeping, and private phone. The benefits and amenities associated with independent living include beauty salon & barber shop, transportation, healthcare center, community activities, golf course, game/TV room, security guards, and restaurant-style dining hall.

Cost of Living

The total cost of living is a major factor in selecting which location is best for your loved one's needs. The rent burden for Giddings is about 15.8% of the average person's monthly income. Giddings has a median home value of $107,125 and the median cost of rent is around $730 per month per month.

Demographics and Values
