Costs of memory care in the Arlington area

Seniors and their families pay an average of $5,418 per month for rent at a memory care facility in Arlington, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022-2023 proprietary data.[01] Memory care residents in Arlington pay significantly less than residents in the surrounding cities of Dallas and Fort Worth.

The above figure only accounts for rent, so it’s important to note that costs may vary based on a community’s location, the selected floor plan, available amenities, and your loved one’s required level of care. Luckily, there are several amenities and services included in the baseline rent at Arlington memory care communities.

Here’s a list of amenities and services you’ll typically find covered by monthly baseline rent in Arlington memory care communities:

  • Assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs — bathing, dressing, grooming, etc.)
  • Housekeeping and laundry services
  • A dining plan with meals and snacks included
  • Standard apartment maintenance and community landscaping
  • Personalized memory care activities (like specialized therapies, brain games, etc.)
  • Access to on-site amenities (like fitness centers, whirlpools, crafts centers, libraries, life-skill stations, etc.)

Some of the following services and amenities are also typically found at Arlington memory care communities, though they may incur additional costs:

  • Advanced care services (behavior management, medication management, chronic disease management, etc.)
  • Room services and special meal accommodations
  • Roommate fees
  • Pet rent, care, and grooming
  • Salon, spa, or barbershop services
  • Transportation services

How people pay for memory care in Arlington

Seniors and their families typically use a mixture of personal income sources, insurance policies, savings, and pension income to pay for a memory care community in Arlington. Qualifying seniors also use federal and state programs, such as veterans benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare to help offset some medical and memory care costs. In this section, you’ll find useful information on the most common payment methods used by families.

Private pay methods

Families often initially look to their personal assets when crafting a payment plan for memory care. Savings accounts usually come to mind first. But families can also utilize other personal assets, including health savings accounts (HSAs), retirement pensions, investment returns, and/or Social Security benefits. And, luckily, Texas doesn’t levy a personal income tax, saving seniors from paying taxes on these income sources at the state level.

If you’re considering long-term care insurance as a payment method for memory care, we recommend that you reach out to your senior loved one’s policy provider to learn about what memory care costs can be covered under their plan.

Depending on your loved one’s current situation, you can also turn to the following options to pay for memory care in Arlington:

Number of veterans living in Arlington as of 2021

About 47% of Arlington veterans are 65+.

Can seniors use veterans benefits to pay for memory care?

Eligible senior veterans and their spouses could use funds provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to pay for long-term care and memory care costs in Arlington. The Aid and Attendance benefit, specifically, is important for disabled veterans as it’s especially generous. It can be added to an existing Veterans Pension to cover anything that improves a senior’s quality of life — which could include rent and care at a memory care community.

Does my senior loved one qualify for veterans benefits?

If you’re unsure about your loved one’s eligibility status for VA benefits, you should reach out to a local veterans service organization (VSO). These organizations are nonprofits, are often VA-vetted, and can help veterans find benefit options they may not know about. Such organizations offer benefit advising and assistance to help you or your loved one successfully file for a claim or appeal a denied claim.

It’s in your best interest to reach out to a local VSO before applying for benefits. They’ll help your loved one obtain and maximize benefits. You can also check out this service-connected disabilities fact sheet to see whether your loved one’s disability or condition qualifies them for benefits. Keep in mind that the fact sheet is not exhaustive, and conditions often change. So, even if you don’t think your loved one’s condition is covered, it’s still a good idea to check with a VSO, especially with a dementia diagnosis.

How can my senior loved one obtain veterans benefits in Arlington?

Fortunately, Arlington has a simplified process for veterans seeking benefits assistance. Families can reach out to the Tarrant County Veterans Services Office to access a variety of VSOs. This office connects veterans to local, regional, and national services offered by organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Texas Veterans Commission (TVC), and others.

You can reach out to the above mentioned organizations for benefits assistance using the contact information below. We’ve also provided some online guides for more information.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a public health insurance program that’s jointly funded by the state and federal governments. It can’t be used to pay rent at a private memory care community in Arlington. But it can help cover some long-term health care services and medically necessary care services within a memory care community.

STAR+PLUS — Texas’ Medicaid program for seniors

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) operates Texas Medicaid, which is called STAR. STAR offers a managed care program specifically for seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities called STAR+PLUS. In addition to routine health care costs, the STAR+PLUS program covers long-term care services, which can include the following:

  • Nursing and personal care services
  • Therapy extension services
  • Nutrition services
  • Transportation services
  • Rehabilitative services
  • Hospice care

Keep in mind that STAR+PLUS can only cover health care and long-term care services through agencies licensed and certified by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must not exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for STAR+PLUS:[03]

  • $2,742 as an individual
  • $5,484 as a couple
STAR+PLUS’ home and community based services (HCBS) program

For care services to be covered within a private memory care or assisted living facility, seniors must be eligible for a home and community based services (HCBS) Medicaid waiver program. And the facility must qualify as a residential or community based setting. HCBS waivers allow Medicaid to cover care services provided through a home health care agency contracted with the patient’s managed care provider. This enables seniors to receive care in a residential setting of their choice, like a memory care community, rather than an institutional setting like a nursing home.[04]

The STAR+PLUS HCBS waiver program can help cover the following care costs as long as the agency providing the care services is contracted with Medicaid:[05]

  • Personal assistance services (assistance with ADLs and IADLs, medication administration, etc.)
  • Cognitive rehabilitation therapy
  • Medical supplies
  • Nursing care services
  • Respite care
  • Rehabilitative and hospice care
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies
  • Adaptive aids, such as eyeglasses, hearing aids, orthotic devices, and orthopedic shoes

When a senior applies for Medicaid, the HHSC will assess their need for the HCBS waiver program. As of 2023, seniors must meet the following eligibility requirements:[04]

  • Be 65 years of age or older.
  • Require an institutional level of care, commonly found in a nursing facility.
  • Meet income requirements for the STAR+PLUS Medicaid program.

Note about HCBS settings: Many stand-alone memory care facilities may not qualify as an HCBS setting. However, some memory care group homes and assisted living facilities with a memory care unit will. Be sure to check with each prospective community if you plan to use Medicaid to pay for care services. To qualify as an HCBS setting, facilities must meet the following qualifications:[06]

  • Be integrated into the greater local community.
  • Enable interested residents to seek work or volunteer opportunities.
  • Help the senior resident engage in local community life.
  • Allow the senior to control their own resources and finances.
  • Allow the senior to receive Medicaid care services.
Medicaid assistance in Texas

If you require help understanding or accessing your loved one’s eligible Medicaid benefits, you can contact your local area agencies on aging (or AAAs). These agencies can provide assistance in accessing local long-term care services and disability programs. You can also submit a complaint if you have concerns about your loved one’s current Medicaid coverage.

Below, you can use the Your Texas Benefits search tool to find a local Medicaid office near you or you can use the HHSC services search to find other local long-term care programs. We’ve also provided easy access to online applications and guides. You can even contact your local long-term care (LTC) ombudsman to better understand your loved one’s available memory care options and payment methods.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program providing coverage to adults aged 65 and older and individuals with disabilities. It can’t be used to cover room and board costs in a private Arlington memory care community, but it can help cover some medically necessary care costs within a memory care facility.

The following Texas programs can help seniors save on Medicare costs and apply for Medicare benefits:

  • The Texas Medicare Savings Program covers some Medicare Parts A and B premiums, deductibles, copayments, and/or coinsurance. Part A covers hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, and some home health care services. Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, rehabilitative care, hospice care, medical supplies, and preventive services.

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed a monthly income of $1,458 as an individual or $1,972 as a couple to qualify for this program. They must also not exceed $9,090 for resources as an individual or $13,630 as a couple.[03]

  • The Texas Legal Services Center (TLSC) houses the Health Information, Counseling, and Advocacy Program (commonly referred to as HICAP) and the Legal Hotline for Texans to offer seniors legal advice, referrals, and assistance with Medicare.

Dual Medicaid and Medicare

If your senior loved one qualifies for both Medicare and Medicaid, they’re eligible to receive dual coverage through one Medicare-Medicaid Plan (MMP) in Arlington, Texas. This program is called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project and is commonly referred to as “the Demonstration.” The Demonstration aims to do the following:

  • Improve service coordination.
  • Enhance quality of care.
  • Eliminate cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid.
  • Reduce costs for both the Texas and federal governments.

To qualify for the Demonstration, a senior must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • Have Medicare Parts A, B, and D and receive full Medicaid benefits.
  • Be enrolled in the STAR+PLUS program for at least 30 days.

Dual-eligible individuals should be automatically enrolled in the program. They may choose to opt out of the Demonstration after they receive an enrollment letter in the mail notifying them of their enrollment. To request additional information on this program, you can email managed_care_initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for memory care facilities

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is the state agency responsible for licensing and regulating memory care facilities. Memory care facilities are considered a type of assisted living in Texas, so memory care regulations are built into existing assisted living regulations and laws.

The state of Texas refers to assisted living facilities as ALFs and categorizes them into two main types:[07]

  • Type A ALFs provide care to seniors who don’t need routine overnight attendance and are able to follow directions in an emergency.
  • Type B ALFs are for seniors who need nighttime attendance and staff assistance to evacuate during emergency situations. This type includes facilities with special care units, including memory care and skilled nursing.

All licensed memory care facilities fall under the Type B assisted living facility (ALF). Assisted living facilities with memory care must meet additional memory-care certification requirements.

Texas’ regulations hold memory care communities to a higher standard than other states. For example, regulations require memory care staff to continuously learn about the latest dementia research and train in tried-and-true memory care techniques. Texas even requires facilities to offer specialized memory care programming to actively engage residents.

Read on for some additional regulation standards that Texas has for assisted living facilities licensed in memory care.

Memory care staffing and training regulations

  • Memory care facilities providing care to more than 17 residents are required to have two caregiving staff members on-site at all times.
  • Caregiving staff must undergo 4 hours of memory care-specific training before they assume any job-related duties or tasks.
  • After the initial training, caregiving staff must complete 16 hours of on-the-job supervised training. This training should encompass all of their responsibilities, including assisting with activities of daily living, behavior management, emergency procedures, and more.
  • Memory care facility managers are required to complete 6 hours of memory care training on an annual basis. Their memory care team will need to complete 12 hours of continued education and memory care training on a yearly basis.

Memory care admissions, assessments, and care plans

  • It’s required for each memory care facility to develop a process for ensuring their ability to care for a potential resident. And they should apply this process before admitting each resident.
  • Within a new resident’s initial two weeks after admission, facilities are required to perform an assessment of the resident’s behaviors, health conditions, communication abilities, dietary requirements, required medications, and ability to perform activities of daily living (ADLs).
  • Resident assessments should be used to craft personalized care plans that accommodate residents’ needs, preferences, and strengths. These care plans should help keep a resident physically, cognitively, and socially healthy.
  • Care plans must be adjusted on an annual basis and after serious conditional changes in the resident.

Memory care activities programming

  • Memory care facilities must have an activities program that encourages, not forces, socialization, self-expression, physical activity, and cognitive awareness among residents.
  • A designated activity director is required to lead activity programming. The director should ensure a healthy balance of group and individual activities that address varying cognitive, recreational, and daily living needs.
  • The activity director must also consider each resident’s medical history, limitations, and preferences to determine person-centered activities. The director must also arrange special equipment for the residents who need it.[08]

Memory care facility inspections

To regulate memory care-specialized assisted living facilities, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission performs unannounced inspections approximately every two years after the initial inspection. Inspections assess a facility’s compliance with Texas’ health and life safety code.[09]

The health code inspection includes a review of the following:

  • Appropriate staff-to-resident ratios
  • Employee background checks
  • Management of the facility
  • Any items that could affect resident health

The life safety code inspection reviews the following:[09,10]

  • Construction of the facility
  • Safety and emergency features
  • Protection from hazardous areas
  • Documentation of fire drills, system checks, etc.

You can access each licensed community’s most recent inspection report and general facility information through the Texas Health and Human Services’ Long-term Care Provider Search. Inspection reports typically include the date of a community’s most recent inspection, a list of any found violations, and the date violations were corrected. To request any information not found in reports, you can email rsltcr.recordsmgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us.

COVID-19 regulations for Arlington memory care facilities

Arlington doesn’t have any regulations in place for city residents regarding the spread of COVID-19. However, Texas qualifies memory care facilities as assisted living facilities. Therefore, these facilities must follow assisted living guidelines.

Texas assisted living facilities are required to develop their own infection prevention and control measures for common infections, including COVID-19. The measures should include guidance on the following hygiene practices:

  • Disinfection and sterilization techniques
  • Use of personal protective equipment (PPE)
  • Safe injection methods
  • Physical distancing requirements

Because communities are allowed to set their own guidelines, it’s recommended that you check with each prospective community to see how they’re handling the spread of COVID-19 or any virus. You can also visit the coronavirus informational page on the Arlington city website to find regular updates regarding local risk levels, testing, vaccinations, and more.

What to expect from memory care living in Arlington

Arlington offers many benefits for seniors living with dementia. The city is a part of the North Central Texas Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. This means affected community members have access to many local resources, programs, and events that help families learn about, cope with, and fund research efforts for Alzheimer’s.

As a suburb of Dallas, Arlington also benefits from the dementia-friendly initiatives in place in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) metroplex. Dementia-affected families can travel to the surrounding cities to access a wider network of dementia-friendly businesses, programs, and activities in Fort Worth and Dallas.

Arlington also offers many memory care communities designed to accommodate the specialized needs of individuals with dementia. Learn about how our Arlington memory care partners are accommodating unique memory care needs below.

Specially trained staff ease common dementia symptoms and behaviors

Texas requires specialized memory care training for its caregiving staff. Caregivers at these facilities should be trained to use gentle redirection, cueing, and reorientation techniques to address common dementia behaviors. Through these person-centered care techniques, dementia caregivers help to ease common behaviors and symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.

Here’s a brief overview of some common symptoms and behaviors caregivers at our memory care partners in Arlington are trained to handle:[01]

  • About 95% of communities specially train their staff to handle dementia symptoms like restlessness, pacing, and wandering.
  • About 95% of communities train their staff to prevent exit-seeking behaviors.
  • About 58% of communities train their caregivers specifically to handle hallucinations and delusions.
  • About 52% of communities specially train their caregivers to handle anxiety, aggression, or agitation.

Memory care communities also employ staff members to handle daily chores like cooking, cleaning, driving, and scheduling appointments. Residents can expect housekeeping and laundry services, meal plans, and transportation for off-site appointments and group activities. More than half of our partner communities in Arlington also offer full, on-site nursing services, enabling residents to receive standard medical care services without having to visit a clinic.

Specialized programming and activities promote a healthy lifestyle

Memory care communities offer personalized activities and therapies to properly and healthily engage residents. Activities are often informed by a resident’s close family, friends, caregivers, and/or physicians to make them truly person-centered. Such personalized assistance helps residents recall their cherished memories and promote new, meaningful experiences.

And, Texas requires memory care facilities to provide specialized programming that encourages residents to stay social, active, and healthy. This means that many of our partner facilities go the extra mile to implement unique memory care programs to help ensure the well-being of their residents.

The most common memory care activities practiced in our partner communities include brain-stimulating puzzles, sensory stimulation, and reminiscence therapies. Communities often offer several different types of reminiscence therapies — music therapy, art therapy, taste and scent therapy, and pet therapy — based on residents’ history and interests. Some communities even offer life-skill stations which imitate real-life environments to promote reminiscing. Depending on the individual resident’s history, life-skill stations are any scene that helps the resident recall long-term memories of the hobbies or professions of their past.

Residents are also free to enjoy any on-site amenities at these communities whenever they’d like, with or without the help of a caregiver. This enables residents to retain some independence as caregivers watch from a distance for continued safety. Typical on-site amenities found in our partner Arlington memory care communities include game rooms, libraries, movie theaters, fitness centers, courtyards, patios, gardens, and more.

Multiple levels of care promote aging in place

More than half of our memory care partners in Arlington offer multiple levels of care to promote aging in place as well as help couples with different needs age together. With multitier care, seniors can move into a community for the social aspect with independent living and then switch to assisted living or memory care if care needs arise.

The independent living option offers on-site conveniences and entertainment, which enable seniors to leave the stresses of home ownership behind, make new friends, and have convenient access to daily activities. Assisted living offers all of that with added personal care services, like assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs). With memory care, residents with a dementia diagnosis benefit from more personalized forms of assisted living care to accommodate their memory loss symptoms.

Seniors in memory care facilities don’t have to worry about driving themselves around because our memory care partners in Arlington offer access to transportation services on-site. Some Arlington communities offer complimentary or at-cost rides through their own shuttle or car service. If a community doesn’t have their own shuttle or car service, you can ask the concierge to coordinate a ride with a local ride service.

Arlington also offers Handitran to seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities. To apply, seniors need to provide proof of age and pay an initial $10. Thereafter, seniors must pay $2 per one-way trip or $55 per month for unlimited rides. If you must use this ride service, we recommend that seniors with dementia are accompanied by a caregiver escort.

Senior activities in Arlington

From mouthwatering eats and fun shops to beautiful parks and thrilling sporting events, Arlington seniors have a world of activities at their fingertips. And, many of these places offer accommodations for seniors with a disability — just be sure to ask!

Seniors can explore local attractions during scheduled outings coordinated by our Arlington memory care partners. Or, they can venture out with visiting loved ones to create new, meaningful memories. Check out some of the best, dementia-friendly activities in Arlington below.

Arts to stimulate the senses

Seniors with dementia are able to relax their minds when surrounded by their favorite artworks, so a visit to the local Arlington Museum of Art might be worthwhile. The museum houses immersive artworks that calm the mind along with historic pieces that transport you back in time and enable you to reflect on the past.

Seniors and their families may also attend their favorite concerts, plays, ballets, or symphonies at one of Arlington’s performing arts theaters. Both the museum and several local theaters offer accessible routes and other accommodations for individuals with disabilities — so be sure to inquire before you visit.

Green parks for nature therapy

Another soothing activity could include a visit to an Arlington park. Seniors and families can take a stroll or spend the day picnicking and birdwatching. Richard Greene Linear Park is especially popular among locals due to its expansive hiking trails, biking routes, and picnic areas alongside a tranquil lake. The park also displays the captivating Caelum Moor environmental sculpture, a 5-acre long Celtic-inspired monolith installation, which can be viewed while traversing the landscape.

Reminisce with favored sports teams

It’s important for seniors to continue doing the things they love, which might include supporting their favorite local sports team. In that case, visitors might want to take their loved one out to see a Dallas Cowboys or Texas Rangers game. Both stadiums provide accessible routes and enhanced sightlines for seniors with disabilities. Or, families can watch their favorite team play on a big screen as they grab a bite or drink at one of Arlington’s sports bars and pubs.
