What to Consider About Memory Care in Edinburg

Edinburg is part of the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission metro area in the far south of Texas, a state with 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's patients. Seniors aged 65 and older comprise over 7 percent of the city's population of 86,000, some of whom will need housing in memory care facilities for dementia or other types of cognitive diseases. Edinburg has one memory care facility and from which to choose and there are six more in the surrounding area. 

Some assisted living communities feature a dedicated memory care wing, secure from the main campus and under different state regulations. Edinburg also has several Alzheimer's care-specific facilities whose residents are only admitted with a physician's diagnosis. Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a legal designation for residents who require overnight supervision and care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency. 

  • Summers near the Texas-Mexico border, where Edinburg is located, are typically long and hot. Memory care residents with certain health conditions may be uncomfortable in the summer as temperatures can reach into the high 90s. Winters are typically mild and snow-free, comfortable for aging joints. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax, including tax on income derived from 401K or other retirement accounts, pensions and Social Security benefits. Edinburg families helping loved ones afford memory care may have a bit of extra money in their budget.
  • The cost of living in Edinburg is lower than the national average, most notably in the cost of housing, which is slightly over half the rest of the nation. This may be helpful for families on a limited budget as a lower cost of housing may reduce memory care fees due to lower operating costs. 
  • The Edinburg area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as McAllen Medical Center and the South Texas Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
