What to Consider About Memory Care in Spring

In Spring and the state of Texas, seniors can seek resources and support through Texas Health and Human Services (HHS), a government agency committed to helping eligible older Texans in various ways. HHS creates opportunities for seniors to live independently in their homes, access meals, find assisted living and memory care programs they qualify for and provides support and tools to family caregivers.
