Texas Nursing Homes

There is little wonder that Texas retirement homes are one of the highest in demand in the United States. Do you want to live in a state that features mild year-round temperatures including little to no chance of snow in the winter? Check. Do you want a variety of options for nursing homes in Texas with several great amenities? Check. What about a community that is exclusive to seniors with many people in the same demographic?  Check. How about affordability? Are you looking for something that isn’t ridiculously expensive? Check.

Texas nursing homes consistently rank among the best for short term care or long-term care facilities in the nation. The appeal of Texas skilled nursing facilities is further enhanced by the exceptional value. Texas ranks second in the nation in terms of average monthly cost (approximately $4,500 per month), with only nearby Oklahoma featuring cheaper semi-private or private rooms in nursing homes.

Texas Nursing Home Costs

It is possible to find nursing home semi-private rooms in Texas for as little as $140 per day. At this rate, one can save more than $80 per day compared to the national average. If you do the math that equals to savings of more than $28,000 per year. How would you like to have an extra $28,000 in your pocket every year?

Due to the massive size of Texas, prices can vary drastically. For example, it is possible to pay over $260 per day for a retirement home semi-private room in different areas of the state. So, what makes such a drastic, over $100 per day difference? It usually depends on location of the Texas nursing home along with the amenities provided. Some skilled nursing facilities in Texas feature many more luxuries and amenities. The Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area, for example, is extremely popular with seniors and Texas retirement homes average closer to $230 to $260 per day for a semi-private room there. Austin and Round Rock is another part of Texas with expensive long-term care rates.

Affordable Texas long term care provides comfortable, clean rooms between $115 to $150 per day. These types of units are spread throughout the state, and usually in more rural settings away from the major cities. Unfortunately, Medicare does not provide coverage for long term care in Texas. However, some short-term care facilities in Texas accept Medicare for rehabilitation purposes. You will have to check with the individual Texas nursing home for more details.

Texas Nursing Home / Skilled Nursing - Amenities

Thanks to the large state with so many big cities as well as mid-sized communities, the variety and selection in Texas nursing homes is incredible. So many skilled nursing facilities deliver such a different experience that it is difficult to group them in one whole.

However, you can expect to find similar trends with the top-rated retirement homes in Texas. These amenities include daily meal servings, regularly scheduled programs and activities, medication management, rehabilitation treatment, specialized treatment for chronic diseases and cognitive disabilities.

Texas nursing homes may very well be the best. Unlike California and Florida, nursing homes in Texas are far more affordable. The same quality service and amenities are also offered. And, because the state is so spread out, competition is not extremely intense with a demand to sign up immediately or get on a waiting list.
