Texas Senior Care Facilities
Senior care facilities can include the following as well as options to assist with one's on-going care needs.
Assisted Living is part of a continuum of long term care services that provides a combination of housing, personal care services, and health care designed to respond to individuals who need assistance with normal daily activities in a way that promotes maximum independence.
Memory Care is a special kind of care provided to those with varying degrees of dementia or Alzheimer’s. It involves creating a structured environment that has set schedules and routines in place to create a stress-free lifestyle, safety features to ensure the health of a senior, and programs designed to cultivate cognitive skills. When a senior is dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia, they often require attentive and expert care, along with an environment that’s safe and secure.
Skilled Nursing Facilities provide round-the-clock assistance with healthcare and activities of daily living. Payment options can include Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, Long-Term Care Insurance, Medicaid, Veterans Administration Aid, and Private Pay (Out-of-Pocket).
Personal Care Homes (also known as a residential care homes) in Texas are private residences most often within a subdivision that offer personal care services, assistance and supervision to four or more persons. They offer a smaller, more intimate setting, ideal for persons who might not do well with the larger assisted living facilities. They typically provide meals, laundry, housekeeping, medication supervision, assistance with activities of daily living and activity programs.
Senior Housing & Care Locators assist families who are considering options for assisted living, independent living, nursing home care and memory care primarily. However, they can also assist with home care options such as home health and non medical in home care, respite care and hospice.
Granny Pods (or flats) is a tiny home built or placed on the same property as the home of someone who will look after the occupant. They offer more privacy and independence than living with family as they are set up on the property of a larger family home and connected to the existing utilities. They are typically 400-500 square feet in space.
