    What to Consider About Assisted Living in Brookshire

    Brookshire is a small suburb of Houston, part of the greater Houston metro area. The town, formerly known as Kellner, has a history rich in agriculture, and more recently, natural gas production. The population of Brookshire is 5,000, 10% of whom are aged 65 and older. To support those in this age group who require help with the tasks of daily living, Brookshire has two assisted living facilities, with eight more in nearby communities.

    The Texas Department of Health and Senior Services licenses and regulates assisted living facilities. Care homes are divided into two tiers, based on the level of care that the residents require. Assisted living communities are considered Class A, where the residents don't require around the clock supervision. 

    Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Brookshire

    • Brookshire weather means long, hot summers and mild, snow-free winters. Although the nearby Gulf of Mexico often provides cool breezes, seniors sensitive to high temperatures may be uncomfortable here. 
    • The cost of living in Brookshire is slightly lower than the national average, 94 compared to the baseline of 100. At 66, housing costs are some of the lowest in the Houston metro area. The lower cost of housing may translate into lower fees for residents in assisted living, as the facilities may have lower operating costs. 
    • Seniors in Brookshire may be eligible for reduced fares on the METRO public bus and light rail system, operating in the greater Houston area. 
    • Crime rates in the US are rated on a scale of 1 to 100, with 1 being the safest. Brookshire crime rates are lower than the national average, with violent crimes at 21 compared to 23 and property crimes at 24  compared to 35. Seniors are still advised to use caution when traveling into Houston proper. 
    • The Brookshire area is home to world-class medical facilities, including Memorial Hermann in Katy, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Brookshire, as part of the greater Houston area, is a member of the AARP Network of Age-Friendly Communities, meaning that its elected leadership “has made the commitment to actively work toward making their town, city or county a great place for people of all ages,” according to AARP.
