What to Consider About Memory Care in Round Rock
Round Rock is a quiet suburb of Houston, Texas, a state with 380,000 diagnosed Alzheimer's patients. Seniors comprise over seven percent of the city's population of 124,000, many of whom will need housing in memory care facilities for dementia or other types of cognitive diseases. There are nearly 60 memory care facilities in the area to support this population.
Some assisted living communities feature a dedicated memory care wing, secure from the main campus and under different state regulations. Round Rock also has several Alzheimer's Care-only facilities whose residents are only admitted with a physician's diagnosis.
Alzheimer's and dementia care facilities are considered Type B nursing care in Texas, a legal designation for residents who require overnight supervision and care from certified staff and assistance in an emergency.
Weather in Round Rock means long, hot summers with a bit of breeze from the nearby Gulf. Memory care residents with certain health conditions may be uncomfortable in the summer, as temperatures can reach into the high 90s. Winters are typically mild and snow-free, comfortable for aging joints.
- Texas does not have a state income tax, which includes income derived from 401K or other retirement accounts, pensions and Social Security benefits. Families helping loved ones afford memory care may have a bit of extra income in their budget.
- Air quality in the Houston area, including Pearland, has been noted by the American Lung Association as having some of the highest year-round particle pollution in the nation. Nearby oil drilling and processing along the Gulf may cause an increase in short-term particle pollution, too. Seniors in memory care with respiratory conditions may find their conditions aggravated.
- The Round Rock area is home to world-class medical facilities, including those specializing in brain health and dementia care such as Houston Methodist Health Center and Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital, in the event of medical emergencies or illness.
