To support local seniors with dementia, the New Braunfels region has seven memory care facilities. Four of these facilities are located within the city limits while the other three are in the nearby cities of Schertz and San Antonio. In Texas, memory care facilities may have their own dedicated building, or they may be situated within a secured wing of a Type B assisted living facility.
