What to Consider About Memory Care in Temple

Texas Health and Human Services licenses memory care communities in Temple and the rest of the state as Type B assisted living facilities, meaning they provide 24-hour supervision and evacuation assistance in an emergency. The department requires facilities to comply with regulations regarding security, staffing and care planning, and it publishes information on caregiver training and residents’ rights.

Benefits and Drawbacks of Memory Care in Temple

  • Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, making it one of the more retirement-friendly states in the nation for prospective memory care residents. The state sales tax rate tracks higher than national norms, but it exempts groceries and prescription and over-the-counter medications from taxation, reducing costs for residents managing chronic health conditions.
  • Out of Texas’s 244 surveyed counties, Temple’s Bell County comes in at 82nd place for health factors and outcomes. The community experiences a higher mortality rate for individuals under 75 and has a life expectancy of 77.5 years, which is about a year below both Texas and U.S. averages. Additionally, only 36% of Medicare beneficiaries get the annual flu vaccine compared to 51% nationally, which may heighten the spread of illnesses among seniors. To promote residents’ health, memory care communities often have staff nurses or bring in licensed health care providers who administer routine care and monitoring.
  • Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Temple serves local memory care residents through dynamic inpatient and outpatient services, promoting access to care for age-related conditions, such as memory loss. It has a team of neurologists and neuroscientists who diagnose and treat cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer’s, promoting access to cutting-edge treatments for seniors with dementia.
  • The cost of living in Temple comes in 16% below the national norm and 11% below Texas’ average, mainly because of its affordable housing costs. This, combined with programs such as STAR+PLUS that fund residential services for qualified individuals, may make this city a budget-friendly option for memory care.
  • Annually, Temple reports about 21 crimes per 1,000 people, with both violent and property-related offenses occurring at a lower rate here than in the nation as a whole. In neighborhoods such as Meador Grove/Moffat and Smith, crime occurs even less often, providing safe options for those seeking memory care services.

Paying for Memory Care in Temple

Note: Residential memory care is usually offered in assisted living facilities, and in general, memory care rates tend to be 20-30% higher than assisted living rates. No national database currently tracks memory care costs in the United States, so we've estimated the monthly memory care costs listed below by adding 25% to the rates listed in Genworth's 2021 Cost of Care Survey.

Temple seniors pay around $5,000 per month for residential memory care.
