What to Consider About Memory Care in Irving

All memory care communities in Irving follow licensing rules set by the Texas Department of Health and Human Services. This agency recognizes memory care facilities as Type B assisted living facilities, meaning facilities provide nighttime attendance and emergency evacuation assistance. It also sets minimum standards for security, staff training and care planning.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Irving

  • Texas doesn’t impose an income tax, which leaves more money in the bank for seniors to put toward local memory care expenses. The state also provides full sales tax exemptions for medications and groceries, saving older adults money on their most purchased items and supporting their financial stability throughout retirement.
  • The cost of living in Irving runs about 6% over the Texas average but aligns closely with the national norm. Compared to the rest of the state, expenses related to groceries, housing and transportation run high, impacting local memory care costs. Fortunately, qualified seniors may pay for memory care services through the STAR+PLUS program. 
  • On the AARP Livability Index, Irving’s score of 55 puts it in the top half of U.S. communities, suggesting a generally favorable environment for older adults. This score reflects the city’s diversity of destinations, with residents having access to an average of one grocery store and at least two parks within a half-mile radius of local memory care facilities. The city also offers high-quality health care, with about 78% of hospital patients reporting high satisfaction with the care they receive, making it a practical option for those living with chronic conditions such as dementia.
  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Irving provides diverse medical services for seniors with memory loss. This 293-bed facility has a team of neurologists and neuroscientists who diagnose memory-related disorders and provide rehabilitative treatment services to support seniors’ quality of life.
  • In a given year, Irving reports about 29 crimes per 1,000 people, putting it in the bottom 12% of U.S. communities for safety. Property-related offenses occur more often here than in a typical Texas or U.S. city, with the city seeing a rate of 25.32 incidents per 1,000 people. However, the violent crime rate comes below norms at a frequency of 3.35. Seniors and families with safety concerns may consider memory care facilities in neighborhoods such as Hemingway Court, Las Colinas West and Riverside Village, which have minimal criminal activity.
