What to Consider About Assisted Living in Irving

The Texas Health and Human Services Department classifies, licenses and regulates assisted living facilities in the state. Communities are expected to maintain high quality care and to submit to regular inspections. This oversight is intended to give residents and their families greater confidence that facilities will provide the necessary staffing and services. An online database offers information about individual facilities.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Irving

 

  • Irving's climate is moderately pleasant in the winter with a comfort index score of 7.5 out of 10. Spring and autumn months are even more comfortable. Summers, however, can be hot, with July highs reaching up to 95 degrees on average. Assisted living communities provide air conditioning and plenty of indoor activities and amenities so that seniors can remain cool even on the hottest days.

Some expense categories, like housing and groceries, do fall below average. While seniors may be concerned about balancing their budgets, assisted living communities usually work with them to create a care plan that meets their needs and financial situations.
  • Crime rates are a mixed bag in Irving. Violent crime is low at 13.4 on a 100-point scale with the national average at 22.7. Property crime, however, is higher than the U.S. average at 39.0 compared to 35.4. However, assisted living communities offer secure entries, video surveillance and emergency response systems that can give residents peace of mind about their safety.
  • Health care costs in Irving fall below average at 94.5 on a 100-point scale. Irving's residents, therefore, typically pay 5.5% less for health care than other U.S. citizens.
