Of Frisco’s 200,509 residents, 12% are seniors over the age of 60. The risk of developing dementia or Alzheimer’s increases as people age and these diseases take hundreds of lives each year, including those living in Frisco. The Centers for Disease Control reported Alzheimer’s-related deaths in Frisco rose 96.17% from 2014 to 2018, increasing from 183 deaths in 2014 to 359 in 2018. The overall death rate in the city grew at a much lower rate of 15.99% during the same period. These statistics represent an alarming increase in Alzheimer’s among the senior population.

Luckily, there are memory care facilities in the city to support seniors experiencing cognitive decline. These long-term care facilities provide activities, therapies and around-the-clock care in a secure environment to help slow the mental effects of dementia. This guide provides more information about the cost of memory care, resources for those with dementia and their loved ones and a list of memory care communities in Frisco.

COVID-19 Rules for Memory Care in Frisco

Since most COVID-19 rules for Memory Care Communities and other Senior Living Facilities are set at the state level, you can view the specific rules for your state on our Guide to Memory Care in Texas. Keep in mind that every community has specific policies that they put in place to protect their residents, so you should contact your local community for more information. Additionally, you can contact your local Area Agency on Aging to learn more – find contact information here.

What to Consider About Memory Care in Frisco

Assisted living facilities with memory care must pass additional certification and licensing standards through the Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) department. This agency is responsible for facility licensing and performs regular and unannounced visits to ensure the Texas rules and regulations for long-term memory care are followed.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Frisco

  • Memory care costs are typically higher than assisted living due to the additional care needed for those with dementia. For this reason, it’s easier financially for seniors who require memory care to live in Texas, which is a retiree tax-friendly state. There’s no tax on Social Security income or withdrawals from retirement accounts and pensions.
  • The Texas retiree tax-friendly policies also bring relief for seniors living in Frisco, considering the city’s high cost of living at 120, compared to the national average of 100 and the Texas state average of 93.9.
  • Frisco offers seniors excellent health care options, including the Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Frisco, an award-winning hospital and a per capita of 228 physicians per 100,000 residents. The national per capita average is 210 per 100,000 people.
  • The weather in Frisco offers mild winters, with the coldest overnight temperatures in January averaging 32.2 degrees. However, the daytime highs in January average between 45 and 70 degrees. Summers can be humid with high temperatures in the upper 90s, making indoor activities more appealing during the hottest months, June, July and August.
  • Frisco promotes outdoor recreation through 49 parks, including natural areas, trail systems, neighborhood parks, and larger community parks. The city, known as dog-friendly, provides a well-appointed dog park. Seniors with dogs who live in memory care and assisted living communities can take their furry friend to the dog park for an outing with family and friends.
