    What to Consider About Memory Care in Galveston County

    Galveston County comprises part of the greater Houston, Texas, metro area and is located along the picturesque Galveston Bay. Over 380,000 Texas residents have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or dementia, most of whom are aged 65 and older. Galveston County itself, with 10.3 percent of its 322,000 residents affected by memory care conditions, has nearly 80 memory care facilities to treat these folks. 

    Memory care facilities in Galveston County, as in all of Texas, are licensed and regulated by the state's Department of Health and Human Services. These "Type B" facilities require staff present to supervise residents around the clock and to assist with emergency evacuations. 

    • Galveston County's weather is characterized by mild winters with no snow and long, hot summers with highs reaching into the 90s. Seniors with health conditions alleviated by warmer temperatures may find relief here. Galveston County may be affected by hurricanes, which some families may want to consider in the event of a memory care facility evacuation. 
    • The air in Galveston County is some of the poorest in the nation, according to the American Lung Association. This is due to both excess ozone and year-round particle pollution, in addition to periodic particle pollution for nearby Gulf of Mexico oil rigs.
    • Galveston County, as part of the greater Houston metro area, is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Houston Methodist Health Center and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
    • Texas does not levy a state income tax, including income received from Social Security benefits and retirement accounts. Families budgeting for a loved one's memory care may appreciate the extra money.
