What to Consider About Assisted Living in Sherman
The first post office in Sherman, TX, was a man's jacket slung over a branch of the pecan tree in the town square with letters stuffed in the pockets. Today, the site is occupied by a more solid structure that sits across the street from the courthouse where the tree used to be, and where aging citizens from the town's nine assisted living communities can pass the time on the large stone benches. The Texas Department of Health and Human Services regulates assisted living communities in Sherman with an eye toward ensuring high-quality care and maximum independence for residents. Staff at these communities offer assistance with normal activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, taking some medications and meal prep, as well as emergency response and coordinating group activities on the property.
