What to Consider About Assisted Living in Irving
Irving is one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas, situated just outside of Texas' largest city, and already home to over 240,000 people, many of whom work for some of the world's largest corporations. All this bustle supports a town with 24 assisted living communities, where seniors who need help with activities of daily living (ADLs) can get staff assistance with dressing, meal prep and taking some medications. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) in Irving and all of Texas are all regulated for quality of care and living conditions by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which conducts inspections and imposes minimum standards for community care. Many ALFs even schedule regular community events, day trips for residents and adult education workshops for their residents.

- The cost of living in Irving varies between slightly cheaper and considerably more expensive than national averages, depending on what's being measured.
