What to Consider About Memory Care in Bedford

Bedford is a safe, close-knit suburb of Fort Worth, part of the thriving DFW metroplex in North Texas. Sixteen percent of Bedford's population of 49,000 are seniors 65 and up, many of whom may need care for Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Estimates by the state of Texas indicate nearly 400,000 residents have Alzheimer's or dementia. Some of Bedford's seniors are in the group, and to accommodate them with around-the-clock care and supervision, Bedford hosts more than 30 memory care facilities.

These and other Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are licensed by the Texas Department of Health and Senior Services as Type B nursing care and have different state regulations than assisted living homes. A Type B license is a legal designation for residents who require overnight supervision and care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Bedford

  • Bedford's weather consists of long, hot summers, with heat waves reaching into the 100s. Seniors sensitive to high heat may be uncomfortable. North Texas winters are mild with little snow, alleviating some health conditions aggravated by the cold and damp. 
  • There is no Texas state income tax. Families budgeting for memory care may find this helpful, as Social Security, disability benefits and retirement income are also exempt from state taxes. Higher property taxes and sales taxes in Texas typically leave memory care residents unaffected. 
  • Bedford's cost of living is higher than the national average, although home prices are the only area where the difference is notable. The cost of groceries, utilities and health care are actually slightly lower than the national average. Higher home prices may affect memory care fees, as the cost of operations might rise accordingly. 
  • The Bedford area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care, such as The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and UT Dallas Center for Brain Health, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Paying for Memory Care in Bedford
