What to Consider About Memory Care in Dallas
Dallas is half of the thriving Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex located in North Texas. With over three million people in the metro area, there are many different Alzheimer's Care Facilities to accommodate the over-65 population of 243,000. Some of the assisted living communities in Dallas boast a dedicated, separate memory care wing, secure from the main campus and under different state regulations. Dallas also has several Alzheimer's Care-only facilities, which receive a designation from the state's Department of Health and Senior Services.
Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas. The state differentiates two levels of care, based on resident needs. Type B facilities require overnight supervision and care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency.
- Dallas is known for a climate of long, hot summers and mild winters. Late summer highs can reach the high 90s or over 100, but cold winters and snow are rare. Seniors who have health conditions alleviated by warm, dry air may find relief here.
- Texas does not have a state income tax, which also exempts income from Social Security benefits and retirement accounts. This may help your loved one with Alzheimer's care fees. While Texas state sales tax and property taxes are higher than many other states, seniors in memory care will likely not be affected.
- The cost of living in Dallas proper is slightly higher than the rest of the nation. While the city itself may be more economical, general living expenses can vary between the suburbs.
- The Dallas area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Baylor University Medical Center and Medical City Dallas Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
