    What to Consider About Memory Care in Pharr

    Pharr, part of the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission metropolitan area, is located deep in the south of Texas. This is a state with over 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's and dementia patients, many of whom reside in specialized memory care facilities. Pharr's population is just under 80,000, 12 percent of whom are seniors 65 and over, a portion of whom may need to transition into one of the city's memory care facilities. Some of these facilities are independent, dedicated dementia care homes while others are part of a larger assisted living campus, separate and secured. 

    These facilities are regulated by the Department of Health and Human Services and licensed according 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. 

    • Pharr's climate consists of long, hot summers and mild winters. While the warmer air may help seniors in memory care who have health conditions alleviated by warmer temperatures, those with sensitivity to high heat may be uncomfortable. The mild winters may ease sore joints. 
    • Property taxes and sales taxes are higher in Texas than the rest of the nation because Texas has no state income tax. Seniors budgeting for memory care may find the extra money helps, and may not be affected by the property and sales taxes. 
    • The cost of living in Pharr is lower than the rest of the country, especially housing costs, which are less than half the national average. This may affect seniors in memory care, as low housing costs may result in lower boarding fees for the facilities. 
    • The Pharr 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.
