What to Consider About Memory Care in Hood County

Hood County, Texas, is part of the busy Dallas-Ft. Worth metro area, centering around the city of Grandbury. Texas has an estimated 380,000 residents with dementia or Alzheimer's disease, most of whom will need housing and care in a specialized memory care facility. About 10.4 percent of Hood County's population may be affected by a memory care condition. To care for these folks, there are over two dozen memory care facilities in the area. 

The State of Texas regulates and licenses memory care facilities through the Department of Health and Human Services. These stipulations include certification and memory care training for all staff, as well as secure facilities, overnight supervision, and staff on hand to assist in case of an emergency evacuation. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in

  • North Texas weather, where Hood County is located, is characterized  by long, hot summers with high temperatures reaching into the 90s and beyond in July and August. Seniors in memory care who are sensitive to high temperatures may be uncomfortable outdoors here. Winters are mild and generally without snow, with average lows in the 30s, which may bring relief to aging joints. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax, which may mean that retirement accounts and Social Security benefits may stretch a little further for families relocating to Texas to be near a loved one in memory care.  
  • Cost of living in Hood County is slightly higher than the national average, mostly due to higher costs for healthcare and housing. These may increase operating costs for memory care facilities, something that families on a tight budget may need to consider. 
  • The Hood County area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Baylor University Medical Center and Fort Worth Brain and Spine Institute, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
