In the state of Texas, over 380,000 residents have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, many of whom are in the vulnerable 65 and older demographic. Eighteen percent of Comal County's 129,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and older; 10 percent of this demographic is estimated to have Alzheimer's or another form of dementia. To house and care for these individuals, Comal County is home to a handful of memory care facilities, with more in the greater San Antonio area. 

    The state's Department of Health and Human Services licenses and regulates these facilities. In Texas, memory care units may be part of a larger assisted living campus or a separate, dedicated memory care facility.
