What to Consider About Assisted Living in Bryan
Bryan is the big college town in the Brazos district, and every free hour in the warm, sunny afternoons here brings students from Texas A&M mingling in coffee shops with seniors from the area's eight assisted living communities. These communities are all regulated as Type A residential care facilities by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which publishes guidelines, conducts inspections and encourages every community to help its residents live as independently as possible. To that end, assisted living facilities in Bryan all offer room and board, as well as a measure of privacy in either single- or multiple-occupant rooms. Staff is always on hand to assist with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and personal care, that seniors sometimes need.
