What to Consider About Memory Care in Lewisville

Texas Health and Human Services oversees all memory care communities in Lewisville and licenses them as Type B assisted living facilities. This department sets minimum standards for intake and discharge criteria, the scope of services facilities must provide and care planning processes, and it requires memory care facilities to provide disclosures regarding the specialized services they provide.

 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Lewisville

  • Denton County, where Lewisville is located, serves as part of the Dementia Friendly America Network. The county provides a variety of services to those living with dementia diagnoses and their families, including information and referrals for local resources, early-stage engagement activities and educational programs.
  • Lewisville has warm, muggy summers and cold, windy winters, and its skies are partly cloudy throughout the year. Average temperatures range from 37 degrees Fahrenheit to 96 degrees Fahrenheit, and residents see virtually no snow but about 34 inches of annual rainfall. To accommodate residents’ preferences and foster an active lifestyle throughout the year, memory care facilities have outdoor amenities, such as enclosed courtyards, as well as indoor activity areas.
  • Medical City Lewisville is a full-service hospital in the city proper with a Level III Trauma Center and a Primary Stroke Center. The hospital can also connect area residents to local dementia resources and provide referrals for specialized services.
  • Denton County ranks second out of the state’s 244 surveyed counties for general health, indicating access to high-quality medical support for seniors. The average life expectancy is 81.7 compared to 78.4 statewide and 78.5 nationally, and only about 12% of adults report fair or poor health compared to 16% statewide. Additionally, the rate of preventable hospitalizations is 2,964 per 100,000 residents versus the Texas average of 3,151, suggesting high access to outpatient care services.
  • While the cost of living in Lewisville runs about 6.8% higher than the national norm, residents spend about 12% less on housing and 10% less on health care here than in a typical U.S. city. This, combined with support from the STAR+PLUS program for qualified individuals, helps seniors afford local memory care expenses.
  • Because Texas doesn’t have an income tax, seniors only pay federal taxes on their retirement income regardless of their annual earnings. The state makes up for its lack of income taxes with a high sales tax, impacting overall affordability in Lewisville, but fortunately, the state exempts prescription and over-the-counter medications.
