What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stephenville
Stephenville, TX, is home to just 21,000 people, but it can feel much bigger for the residents in the town's eight licensed assisted living communities, thanks to the broad streets and busy shopping district downtown. The communities these seniors call home are regulated by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services as Type A long-term care homes. Here, aging citizens can live with as much independence and privacy as their health allows, while still getting help from trained staff with the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and taking some medications. Staff also provide emergency response in case of falls or medical issues, which helps keep the residents as safe as possible.
