Texas Memory Care Facilities

Texas has a very strong reputation with the retirement community for a number of reasons, with perhaps one of the most important being price. Seniors love to settle down here because elderly care is affordable whether you are seeking an independent living community or memory care. Additionally, as the possibility of a senior needing more hands-on care increases, the numerous nursing homes and dementia care facilities in Texas demonstrate strong support throughout the state.

Texas Dementia & Alzheimer’s Care - Services

In the past, one of the biggest mistakes elderly care facilities made was to treat residents like a number. They falsely assumed that all patients in a nursing home had the same problems and thus required the same service. Dementia wasn’t even fully recognized and understood until a few decades ago. However, a lot has changed and as senior homes have transformed to become more specialized and capable of handling complicated cognitive diseases like Alzheimer’s, the treatment has also vastly improved.

Today, memory care communities take a far more hands-on approach. Instead of simply thinking the solution is to sedate a resident with high powered meds, dementia care homes in Texas are starting to transition out of pharmaceutical-heavy approaches to far more natural remedies. Recent medical studies have pointed more toward brain stimulation through various activities and socialization that can help contribute to an overall health and feeling of well-being even in the later stages of Alzheimer’s.

Along with the hands-on treatment in personal, one-on-one interactions or in groups, seniors can expect to be treated to delicious, high quality meals, comfortable rooms, housekeeping, laundry service, extended visitation hours with friends and family, and more. Extra amenities at some of the best Texas Alzheimer’s care homes may also include a beauty salon or barber shop. A select few are even pet-friendly for cats or other small pets.
