Founded by a Texas Ranger. Birthplace of Buddy Holly. Texas Tech Red Raiders football. The “Hub City”--surrounded by five major Texas highways—is a low cost option for retirees. Before searching for Lubbock senior living options, we’ll show you what makes this Texas city special.
For seniors on a budget, Lubbock makes an ideal retirement home. The overall cost of living is 12% below the national average. And Texas doesn’t tax retirement income like many other states. Lubbock senior living options are also appealing. For example, a one-bedroom in an assisted living facility averages $3,050 a month, according to a Genworth Financial survey. A private room in a nursing home averages $158 a month, while a semi-private averages $135. If you home health aide services, expect to pay $35,990 yearly based on 44 hours a week.
Here’s a selection of Lubbock’s museums: At the American Wind Power Center, you’ll find the most extensive collection of old windmills in the world. Silent Wings Museum is a dedicated to WWII glider pilots and features a restored WACO CG-4A glider, artifacts and period equipment. The Buddy Holly Center pays tribute to Lubbock’s native son and other famous musicians of West Texas. The Museum of Texas Tech University features a 5 million-object collection from the arts, humanities and sciences.
Also at Texas Tech, check out the National Ranching Heritage Center, a museum of ranching history with restored period structures such as a railroad depot, barn, schoolhouse and homestead.
