Paying for memory care in Dallas can be done in many ways, but timely planning enables families to maximize their options. Families tend to use some combination of private methods and public sources to fund memory care costs. Check out our compiled information and resources to help understand the various ways to pay for memory care in Dallas.
Income from savings and pensions is one way to pay for memory care. Long-term care insurance is another, but note that policies drastically vary, so it’s best to consult with your policy provider to learn exactly what is and isn’t covered in memory care communities. Below, you’ll find more ways to pay for memory care out of your own pocket:
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is the state agency responsible for licensing and regulating memory care facilities. The state categorizes memory care facilities under assisted living facilities; therefore, Texas memory care regulations are built into assisted living regulations and laws. The state of Texas refers to assisted living facilities as ALFs, and categorizes them into two main types:
All certified memory care facilities fall under the Type B assisted living facility (ALF). The main difference between general assisted living and those offering specialized memory care is that memory care-licensed assisted living communities must meet additional certification requirements. The additional licensing standards for assisted living facilities licensed in memory care include, but are not limited to, the following:
To regulate memory care-specialized assisted living facilities, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission performs unannounced inspections approximately every two years. Inspections are based on a facility’s compliance with Texas’ health and safety code, also referred to separately as the health code and life safety code.
The health code inspection includes a review of the following:
The life safety code inspection includes a review of the following:
Families can see each licensed community’s most recent inspection report and general facility information through the Long-term Care Provider Search provided by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission.
For additional information, you can email RSLTCR.RecordsMgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us or visit this section on the Long-term Care Provider Search page.
Texas Health and Human Services contact information
Memory care facilities in Dallas, Texas, follow the same COVID-19 regulations as assisted living facilities. All long-term care facilities are required to develop their own policies and procedures regarding masking, social distancing, and additional protocols for personal protective equipment (PPE) to govern the safety of residents. Now that emergency rules have expired in Texas, visitors are allowed on site at facilities because visitation is a resident right.
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) developed a COVID-19 response plan and regularly updates a list of COVID-19 FAQs to help assisted living and memory care facilities stay up to date with the following practices:
Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccines cannot be mandated; however, all facilities should make them available.
Masking. Visitors, staff, and residents aren’t required to wear masks unless indicated by the facility’s infection control policies and procedures.
Staff safety. Staff must use appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) when called for.
Facility cleanliness. Surfaces must be frequently disinfected to prevent the spread of infection.

Dallas offers an array of memory care facilities and services dedicated to improving the lives of those living with dementia. The city has a fund called AWARE, as a part of The Dallas Foundation, to provide funding to outstanding programs, projects, and research organizations that support the fight against Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Dallas also has a local Alzheimer’s Association chapter dedicated to providing support services and education to those facing the challenges of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. These programs and services can be used by family members to get a better understanding of dementia. Families can also choose to donate to support the development of resources and programs for individuals with dementia in the Dallas area.
Due to Texas’ robust memory care regulations, the city’s memory care facilities try to personalize their residents’ experiences as best as possible. With regulations that are designed to promote quality of life and care for dementia patients, families can narrow their search to the specific community features that will best enrich their loved one’s life.
Many Dallas-area assisted living facilities offer a secured memory care unit for individuals with dementia, so they can reside in a safe environment built to minimize risks around wandering and confusion. Some communities also integrate activities with the assisted living units to benefit individuals with only mild dementia, so a wide spectrum of care is available and tailored to all residents. These types of communities are a good choice for couples who want to live together, but require different levels of care.
Care must be personalized to the individual in the state of Texas. That is precisely why many communities have adapted a person-centered care approach, dedicated to learning about each individual’s personality, history, preferences, and interests. This personal information is then used by staff members and caregivers to curate residents’ optimum routines and person-centered service plans, including favorite clothes and personalized sleep schedules. Oftentimes, communities will collaborate with families to customize things like a resident’s living quarters, dining plan, or activity options.
Memory care communities in Dallas are required to support activities. Many communities try to develop a truly unique, person-centered program filled with a combination of active and calming activities to entertain residents and help manage their dementia behaviors. These programs help residents maintain a sense of purpose and enhance their quality of life — through personalized activities that are meaningful to them as individuals.
Many communities also use reminiscence therapy, which stimulates the brain and enables dementia patients to recall cherished memories through mementos. Life skill stations are designed and tailored to residents to replicate the environment of their old professions. And sensory therapies help residents to relive cherished moments using songs, scents, textures, and tastes.
Memory care communities often have enclosed courtyards and walking paths, innovative security systems, monitored entrances, easy-to-navigate hallways, and safety call systems to help ensure resident safety. Many communities also have on-site nurses, 24-hour staff, and visiting doctors to oversee proper, timely care.

The city of Dallas has several health care providers, with some ranking high in numerous specialties. Seniors can receive quality care from some of the most highly rated and nationally recognized hospitals in the country:
UT Southwestern Medical Center is ranked as the No. 1 hospital in Dallas, and No. 2 in the state, according to U.S. News and World Report. It’s also nationally ranked in nine specialties, including No. 26 in geriatrics and No. 30 in neurological care, which includes memory disorders like Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias.
Baylor University Medical Center is ranked No. 2 in Dallas, and No. 4 in Texas, according to U.S. News and World Report. It’s nationally ranked in gastroenterology. The hospital has a memory center dedicated to evaluating memory disorders and providing comprehensive care after a diagnosis has been made.
Public transportation isn’t the safest or most ideal option for seniors with dementia, and that is precisely why memory care communities in Dallas typically provide their own transportation services. Some provide complimentary transportation, while other communities include it in the monthly rate or provide it as an à la carte service. Most communities can organize rides for appointments, errands, and scheduled group activities; however, only some will provide transportation to personal events.
Dallas offers a range of activities for seniors in the beginning and later stages of dementia. Local seniors often enjoy a trip to one of Dallas’ many wheelchair-friendly history and art museums, as such trips enable them to interact with art or recall events of the past. Some local historical centers even offer guided tours. The Dallas Arts and Culture scene boasts many theaters, where seniors love to catch timeless plays, attend concerts, or enjoy classical performances.
