In the state of Texas, assisted living facilities are licensed as ALFs. The governing body that oversees the licensing for assisted living in the state of Texas is DADS, or Department of Aging and Disability Services. There are 3 separate categories for assisted living in Texas.

ALF or Assisted Living Facility; Single Occupancy Assisted Living Apartments; and Residential Care Apartments which are double occupancy and Residential Care units or as termed non-apartments.

There are also 2 separate assisted living licensing categories: Category A and Category B. What category of licensing a Texas senior living facility gets is based upon whether or not the occupants can evacuate the premises on their own in an emergency. A Category B license will be given to any senior living facility that advertises or gives personal or specialized services to residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s.

If a senior living facility is not offering services that require a license, then it is unlawful for them to use the term Assisted Living in any way in their name.

What Makes Texas Excellent for Assisted Living?

The lower taxes, as well as cheaper cost of living, has made Texas a prime target for many people looking to manage their finances. And retirees are not left behind as well: Texas offers plenty of sights including the famed Big Bend National Park, the San Antonio Riverwalk, the Alamo Mission in San Antonio and much more.

Texas has a pretty moderate climate, with the average temperature in hotter months up to 95 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average in colder months is around 43.6 Fahrenheit. Mild weather in the Lone Star State gives everyone – seniors inclusive – the opportunity to be outdoors and to participate in recreational activities.

There are more than 1,800 assisted living facilities in Texas, and they operate to provide senior citizens with access to social opportunities, local activities as well as the necessary healthcare they need to thrive. Attentive and experienced caregivers assist residents with laundry, meal preparation, housekeeping duties and more.

The Lone Star State has a very high senior population in the United States. Coupled with the fact that Texas also high a high percentage of working-age adults who pay taxes that go into senior care, and Texas will start looking like an amazing state for senior assisted living.

Many other states in the country do not have this extraordinary benefit, and this is because their overall population is going up age-wise. This is why retirees that move to Texas or those already living in the Lone Star State will get excellent services from assisted living providers.

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Assisted Living in Texas?

For those who don’t know this, Texas assisted living falls in-between a nursing facility and an independent living community, especially in terms of the amount or level of care that is provided.

If your loved one has begun to show signs of requiring assistance with basic activities such as walking, bathing, dressing, managing medications, grooming toileting, eating, they need better care and attention. And that can only happen at an excellent assisted living facility in Texas.

If an elderly person in your care develops a severe medical condition that calls for specialized care, you should consider moving the person to a nursing home.

Types of Services or Amenities Provided in Texas Assisted Living

Assisted living communities in Texas offer a wide range of services to residents. These facilities usually have round-the-clock staff that assists residents with toileting or help with incontinence, medication management, dressing, bathing, etc.

They also provide three meals a day – plus snacks – scheduled exercise and health programs, transportation, and other organized events or health activities.

A few of these communities even feature on-site amenities like swimming pools, gyms, beauty salons, libraries, common areas for interacting or socializing, pharmacies and pet care.

When it comes to sequestering your loved one in an assisted living facility in Texas, it could be a tough decision to make. But when you begin to notice that they need assistance with nearly everything they used to do daily, then you have to make the right decision. Moving them to an excellent assisted living community will do more good to their overall health and lifestyle than staying under your roof with little or no care at all.

Cost and Payment Options for Assisted Living in Texas

Statewide, the state of Texas is lower than the national average of $4,000, coming in at $3,795 per month for assisted living costs. This is the standard rate that excludes any add-on services. The least expensive assisted living homes are in El Paso, Longview, Corpus Christi and Texarkana. The range for those cities is from $2,250 per month, which is great compared to most states, and $3,100, which is still a very affordable amount. We say this because you must always keep in mind that there may be extra monthly costs attached as the senior gets older. There could be memory or Alzheimer’s care involved or Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and more, and even a possible move to a facility with a higher level of care, such as one of the retirement homes in Texas. Planning for an additional $1,000 or more in monthly spending is a prudent move.

The most expensive cities for assisted living in Texas are Odessa, Victoria, and San Angelo. The average for the priciest cities is $4,065 per month, which is just slightly above the $4,000 national average, to $5,190 in really high-end facilities. Waco, Amarillo and Tyler are at $3,695 to $3,800, so they are considered median range but still under the national average.

If you add Texas memory care, the current estimated amount is around $1,138 more in addition to the standard rate, though it’s still lower than the national average for dementia and Alzheimer’s care.
