What to Consider About Assisted Living in Victoria
In Victoria, Texas, one of the oldest dance halls in the country, Club Westerner, welcomes guests of all ages, including seniors from the city's four assisted living communities. These communities are overseen at the state level by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, which inspects residential care homes for safety, staff training and resident well being. Though the specific amenities offered in these communities vary, all provide room and board, as well as 24-hour emergency response and help to manage the activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing and meal preparation, that have grown too difficult for some seniors to manage for themselves.
