What to Consider About Assisted Living in Georgetown
Each spring, the land in and around Georgetown, TX, comes alive with red poppies, which are one of the chief agricultural products of the region. The city's 54 assisted living communities are likely to put out a bouquet of poppies while they're in season, and seniors can schedule a day trip into the Victorian town center to see the annual poppy parade. Residential care homes in Texas are all regulated through the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which classes assisted living communities as Type A sites, where residents can expect room and board and help with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as personal care and taking some medications. The emphasis in a Type A community, as opposed to nursing homes and other Type B properties, is to help seniors live with as much independence and privacy as their health allows.
