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.
