What to Consider About Memory Care in Missouri City
Missouri City, Texas, is a safe, family-friendly suburb of Houston. In a state with over 380,000 Alzheimer's disease and dementia residents, many of the 8,700 seniors living in Missouri City will eventually need accommodations in memory care homes. Missouri City has several memory care facilities to care for this segment of the population. While some assisted living communities in Missouri City have a separate, secure wing that is designed to allow memory care residents to age in place, other facilities are solely dedicated to Alzheimer's care.
Memory care facilities in Texas are subject to specific state regulations that focus on staff training and certification. Texas stipulates that Alzheimer's and dementia care must be provided in Type B nursing care facilities that house individuals who would be unable to evacuate in an emergency without staff assistance. These facilities are also required to provide services to seniors who need overnight supervision and aid. In Texas, senior living communities that are certified Alzheimer's care facilities admit only those with a physician's diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease.
Weather in Missouri City means long, hot summers in the high 90s and mild, snow-free winters. Seniors sensitive to extreme heat may be uncomfortable, but others may find the warmer weather alleviates their sore joints or other health conditions.
- Texas does not have a state income tax, and income from retirement accounts and investments as well as Social Security benefits are also included in this exemption. Families who are helping their loved ones pay for memory care may have extra money to work with due to there being no state income tax. Although property taxes and sales tax are higher in Texas than in other states, these taxes should have little effect on those in memory care housing.
- The air quality in the greater Houston area, including Missouri City, is noted by the American Lung Association to have some of the highest year-round particle pollution and ozone presence in the nation. Air coming from the Gulf may carry short-term particle pollution to the town as well. Seniors living in memory care facilities who have respiratory conditions may find their health is negatively impacted by the air quality in the area.
- The Missouri City area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Houston Methodist and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
