What to Consider About Memory Care in Hidalgo County

Situated along the Mexican border, Hidalgo County is the eighth-most populous county in Texas and is home to 860,000 people, nearly 11 percent of whom are 65 or older. The county's senior residents who have Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia can choose between five memory care facilities.

As is the case in all of Texas, memory care facilities in Hidalgo County are called assisted living facilities (ALFs) and must hold a Type B license from the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services.

  • It takes only one word to describe Hidalgo County's climate: hot. The average summer highs are close to 100 degrees, and the area receives 227 sunny days per year. Winters offer some relief, but even in January, the temperature only gets down to about 50 degrees each night on average. The county receives no snow most years.
  • Hidalgo County's cost of living is 20 percent lower than the national average, and the area is one of a dwindling number of places in the United States where the average home price remains under $100,000. This could be attractive for family members who want to purchase a home near their loved one in memory care. Healthcare, often the largest expense for memory care residents, costs 15 percent less in Hidalgo County than in the average U.S. city.
  • Seniors in Hidalgo County do not pay state income taxes on their retirement benefits, including on their Social Security checks. As a result, memory care residents can put more of their earnings toward high-quality healthcare. However, Texas is known for having some of the highest sales and property taxes in the country.
  • On a scale of one to 100, with 100 being worst, Hidalgo County's violent and property crime rates are 58.8 and 56, respectively. These numbers are much higher than the national averages of 31.1 and 38.1. However, memory care residents don't have to worry about safety, as most facilities are outfitted with cameras, guards, locking exterior doors, and other security features.
