What to Consider About Memory Care in Frisco
Frisco, Texas, is a family-friendly suburb in the Collin County area of the Dallas metropolis. Of those over 65 who receive Medicaid benefits, 11.5 percent have Alzheimer's disease or dementia. Frisco is home to over 30 memory care facilities to care for this group. While some assisted living communities in Frisco have a separate secure wing for memory care residents that are designed to allow aging in place, others are facilities completely dedicated to Alzheimer's care. Memory care facilities are subject to specific state regulations, focusing on staff training and certification. Texas stipulates that Alzheimer's and dementia care be provided in Type B nursing care facilities. Type B facilities house those who would be unable to evacuate in an emergency without staff assistance and those who require overnight supervision and aid. Texas senior living campuses that are certified Alzheimer's care facilities admit only those with a physician's diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
- Frisco's weather is mild in the winter but very hot in the summer, when heat waves of 100 degrees or hotter are common. Seniors who are especially sensitive to heat will likely be uncomfortable, although the milder winters may bring relief to stiff joints.
- There is no state income tax in Texas. Retirement income and Social Security benefits are also exempt from state taxation. This may help when budgeting for Alzheimer's care fees. Texas does have high property taxes and sales taxes, but those in memory care facilities are mostly unaffected by these.
- Frisco's cost of living is considerably higher than the national average, with the increase solely attributable to housing costs. At more than double the national average, the high price of housing may affect the cost of dementia care and boarding.
- The Frisco area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Haven Behavioral Care Hospital of Frisco and Baylor, Scott, & White - Centennial Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
