What to Consider About Memory Care in Mission

Mission, Texas, is a safe suburb in the far south of Texas, part of the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission metro area. The state estimates that there are over 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's patients. Nearly 12 percent of Mission's 83,000 residents are seniors aged 65 and older, many of whom may need care in one of the city's handful of memory care facilities. While some assisted living communities offer a separate, secure memory care wing, other facilities in Misson are exclusively dedicated to Alzheimer's and dementia care.


Both the memory care wings and the standalone facilities are subject to specific state regulations, including specialized staff training. Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a legal designation for residents who require overnight supervision, care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency. 

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Mission

  • Weather in Mission is characterized by mild winters with no snow, which may alleviate some medical conditions. Summers are long and hot, with dry air, which may be uncomfortable for some seniors in memory care who are sensitive to high heat. 
  • Texas does not have a state income tax, although property taxes and sales taxes are higher than many other states. This may not affect seniors in memory care. Income from Social Security and retirement investments are also exempt from state taxation, which may mean that seniors on a budget have a bit more money to afford memory care. 
  • The cost of living, especially housing costs, is lower in Mission than the national average. This may make memory care here more affordable as housing costs can affect the operating costs for many facilities. 
  • The Mission area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as McAllen Medical Center and the South Texas Health System, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.

Paying for Memory Care in Mission

Memory Care costs in Mission start around $4,500 per month on average, while the nationwide average cost of memory care is $5,694 per month.

It’s important to note that memory care rates in Mission and the surrounding suburbs can vary widely based on factors such as location, the level of care needed, apartment size and the types of amenities offered at each community.
