What to Consider About Memory Care in Houston
Houston and its suburbs, which form the fourth most populous metropolitan area in the U.S., offer close to 50 different memory care facilities to help serve the approximately 380,000 Texans who live in Houston and have Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.
Houston's vibrant arts and cultural scene, as well its reasonable living costs, may make it an attractive place to live for individuals age 65 or older, who make up nearly 10 percent of the city's residents. Memory care services in Houston, as in the rest of Texas, may be available in stand-alone facilities or contained within nursing homes or assisted living facilities. Memory care facilities must have monitoring stations and provide access to a secure outdoor space for residents.
- The weather in Houston tends to be hot, humid and rainy, which may limit how much time seniors can comfortably spend outdoors. The city receives around 51 inches of rain each year and its average high temperature in the summer is about 92 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Living in Texas offers several tax advantages for seniors. For example, Texas is one of only seven U.S states with no state income tax. Retirement income is not taxed either, which may help retirees to free up room in the budget for other uses, such as paying for memory care services.
- Houston is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as the Alzheimer's Disease and Memory Disorders Center at Baylor College of Medicine, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
