What to Consider About Assisted Living in Denton

Located just outside the sprawling Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex, Denton retains its small-town Texas charm. A large nature preserve, three libraries, and community outreach programs for seniors make Denton an attractive place to retire. There are 57 assisted living facilities in the Denton area. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services licenses assisted living facilities based on residents' physical and mental ability to evacuate the facility in an emergency and whether the residents require overnight care and supervision. Type A facilities are limited to residents that do not require routine attendance during sleeping hours and are able to follow directions in an emergency. Higher levels of care are provided by Type B, as the residents are not capable of following directions during an emergency and require staff assistance.
