What to Consider About Assisted Living in Lubbock

Nicknamed "Hub City" because it is a regional center for health care, education and the arts, Lubbock offers seniors easy access to quality entertainment and medical services. For those considering a move into assisted living in the Lubbock area, there are at least 14 different facilities to choose from in Lubbock, with more available in neighboring cities such as Canyon.

In Lubbock and throughout Texas, the Department of Health and Human Services licenses two different types of assisted living facilities (ALFs). Type A facilities are for residents who don't need regular nighttime assistance and can follow directions if there is an emergency. Type B facilities care for residents who need overnight attendance, can't follow emergency instructions and need help to evacuate. Both types of facilities offer services including meals, dressing and medication assistance in a homelike setting.
