What to Consider About Assisted Living in Spring

Care providers must be certified and licensed by Texas Health and Human Services before they can open an assisted living facility. To maintain their license, they must also allow the department’s inspectors frequent and unrestricted access to the facility without warning. Approved facilities satisfy multiple criteria relating to health and safety, insurance and staff training.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Assisted Living in Spring

  • July and August in Spring may be uncomfortable for some seniors, as temperatures frequently reach 93 degrees and rainfall is above-average, resulting in many hot and humid days. However, the winter months are pleasantly cool — typically 42 degrees in January. The region rarely experiences freezing days, so seniors shouldn’t be too concerned about slippery paths.
  • Although Spring’s air and water quality are below-average,it has a very good health cost index of 93.8/100 according to Sperling’s BestPlaces. A major contributor to the score is the work undertaken locally to reduce the amount of contaminated land, which provides long-term benefits to the population’s general health.
  • Spring’s average cost of living index is 98.7. That is above Texas’ 93.9 rating,but below the national average of 100. The region’s seniors particularly benefit from lower health care costs, which are typically below the norm for the state and the country. 
  • Spring’s crime rates are much lower than normal for Texas and the United States. The chances of being a victim of property crime are 1 in 68 (the state average is 1 in 44). Violent crime is even less likely, with the chances of being a victim at 1 in 596 (the Texas average is 1 in 222). Seniors may be interested to know that assisted living facilities must have staff on-site 24/7 and many include security systems as standard, such as keypad-entry doors and gates.
  • Spring’s primary medical facilities are Springwoods Village Hospital and Spring Hospital, both of which have emergency rooms and specialists in a range of diagnostic, surgical and outpatient surgery procedures. Spring’s proximity to Houston also means its residents are only 30 minutes from some of the country’s finest hospitals.
  • RIDES is a curb-to-curb transportation program subsidized by Harris County that’s particularly useful to seniors in rural areas. The shared ride option is often the most affordable choice for trips over 12 miles, with the senior paying only 50% of the cost. The taxi option is a metered service, with the senior paying 50% of the fare.
