What to Consider About Memory Care in Burleson

Texas Health and Human Services licenses all memory care facilities in Burleson and officially recognizes them as Type B assisted living facilities, meaning facilities provide nighttime attendance and evacuation assistance in an emergency. The department requires these facilities to provide disclosures regarding their dementia services and care philosophy, and it enforces minimum standards for security, staffing and care planning.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Burleson

  • Johnson County, where Burleson is located, serves as part of the Dementia Friendly North Central/East Texas initiative, meaning that it provides information, referrals and aid to seniors and families affected by dementia. It offers a range of free services, including help with navigating public benefits and services and recommendations for in-person and virtual support groups.
  • Burleson scores 51 on the AARP Livability Index versus the average city score of 48, indicating a comparatively high favorability for seniors. About 72.5% of hospital patients report being satisfied with their care compared to 69% nationally, and residents have high access to local amenities, such as grocery stores and parks.
  • In Burleson, residents see about 15 incidents of crime per 1,000 residents, including 2.6 violent crimes and 12.4 property-related offenses. Overall, the city ranks as safer than 32% of U.S. communities and 38% of Texas cities, although it comes in near the average when compared only to cities with comparable population sizes. To promote seniors’ safety, many memory care communities have security gates and high-security locks.
  • The cost of living in Burleson aligns with the national norm, coming in less than 1% higher than that of a typical U.S. city. Although transportation costs run slightly higher, residents spend about 12% less on housing and 10% less on health care, making the city a budget-friendly option for seniors seeking residential memory support.
  • Because Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, seniors in Burleson retain a high portion of their retirement income and are better able to afford memory care expenses. Additionally, the state exempts prescription and over-the-counter medications from sales tax, offering additional savings for seniors.
  • Burleson’s summers, which run from early June through mid-September, tend to be hot and humid with temperatures ranging from 89 to 97 degrees Fahrenheit and muggy conditions about 60% of the time. The cold season lasts from late November through late February and brings daytime temperatures between 57 and 65 degrees Fahrenheit, appealing to prospective memory care residents sensitive to cold temperatures.
