What to Consider About Memory Care in Plano
Plano, an affluent suburb just north of Dallas, Texas, is considered one of the "safest cities in America," which is especially notable for a city with a population over 250,000. Seniors over 65 comprise 11.6 percent of this population and some may be in need of many memory care facilities due to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
Some of the assisted living communities in Plano have separate, secure memory care facilities, staffed with employees who have state-mandated special training. There are other Alzheimer's care only facilities, which receive a designation from the state's Department of Health and Senior Services. Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a regulation designating facilities where residents need staff assistance in an emergency and require overnight supervision. Facilities that are certified Alzheimer's Care campuses allow only those with a physician's diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's.
Weather in Plano includes long, hot summers and mild winters. The warm weather may feel soothing to aching joints, although seniors sensitive to high temperatures may feel uncomfortable. Highs in July and August average in the 90s, but snowfall is rare.
