Kingwood is a northeastern suburb of Houston. The city’s 25 residential villages are known as “The Livable Forest” for the heavily wooded landscape, canopied with tall pines and beautiful magnolias. Seniors who enjoy boating and fishing will appreciate the recreational opportunities along the shores of Lake Houston and the San Jacinto River. The population of Kingwood is 61,326, of which 16% are people 65 and older.

There may come a time when seniors can no longer live at home alone and need the services of assisted living communities. Assisted living provides around-the-clock staff members to help with daily living needs, personal care, housekeeping and transportation. These facilities are an alternative to living in a nursing home, which provides 24/7, higher-level medical care. Seniors residing in Kingwood can expect to pay an average of $4,245 per month for assisted living, which is higher than the Texas average of $3,998.

This informative guide includes information about assisted living options in Kingwood, including costs, levels of care offered and the advantages and disadvantages of retiring in the city. A listing of free resources for seniors considering assisted living in Kingwood is included.
