What to Consider About Assisted Living in Taylor
The 17,000 people of Taylor, TX, share their town with 28 assisted living communities full of active seniors who live with as much independence as their health permits. This is partly the result of close monitoring by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which inspects long-term care facilities in the state for quality of care and health and safety issues. Though specific amenities offered vary by the property, all of Taylor's assisted living communities provide room and board for their residents, as well as emergency response as needed and regular help for residents with activities of daily living (ADLs) that have become difficult for them to do alone. These typically include dressing, grooming and taking some medications. Staff at some properties also book offsite travel for residents, and they may communicate with seniors' doctors to make sure all are following the resident's care plan.
