Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Fort Worth is a superb retirement option for seniors who seek a small-town feel within a big city. Because of its close proximity to Dallas, the area has become known as the Dallas-Fort Worth — or DFW — metroplex. This larger metroplex enables seniors to reap the benefits of a small, suburban town like Fort Worth without surrendering the conveniences of a large city like Dallas. Plus, Fort Worth offers ideal year-round weather, captivating nature areas, and an abundance of senior-friendly activities.

To further the area’s senior-friendliness, Fort Worth offers robust senior living options to accommodate aging adults. As a matter of fact, A Place for Mom partners with 23 assisted living facilities within a 10-mile radius of Northside Fort Worth. Assisted living is ideal for seniors who require assistance with their activities of daily living (ADLs) and personal care services. Seniors in these communities also benefit from convenient on-site amenities and services that help them stay socially, mentally, and physically engaged.

With this guide to assisted living in Fort Worth, you can browse the various types of assisted living communities in the area. Local listings are categorized based on what matters most to senior residents — with resident ratings on cleanliness, activities, amenities, care services, and more. You’ll also learn about local assisted living costs, how families typically pay, senior-specific care resources, and senior-favored activities in the Fort Worth area.

3.6 / 5.0

We are pleased with Meadowbrook for the most part. The food is certainly not gourmet, but it's adequate. The activities are below par, I think, but we were spoiled by the great activities lady at the previous facility. The staff and caretakers are wonderful and caring.

Costs of assisted living in the Fort Worth area

The average rent for assisted living in Fort Worth is $4,296 per month, according to A Place for Mom’s 2022-2023 proprietary data.[01] Fort Worth assisted living communities have several costs built into the monthly rent, saving seniors from paying additional amounts for food, travel, and daily conveniences. However, some communities’ pay structures include add-on fees for additional services and conveniences. The figure above is a starting cost, and doesn’t account for add-on fees for additional services chosen by residents.

The following services and amenities are typically included in the monthly baseline costs of our partner Fort Worth’s assisted living communities:

  • Assistance with daily living activities (ADLs — bathing, grooming, dressing, etc.)
  • Three meals and snacks daily
  • Housekeeping and laundry/linen services
  • General maintenance and landscaping
  • High-tech security systems
  • Community-organized activities (parties, interest clubs, fitness classes, etc.)
  • Access to on-site amenities (fitness centers, crafts centers, business centers, libraries, movie theaters, etc.)
  • Concierge services

The following services and amenities are also typical of our partner Fort Worth assisted living communities, but they may require additional add-on fees:

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

The following chart can help you compare assisted living baseline costs across the greater DFW area. These figures also don’t account for any add-on service or care fees.

How people pay for assisted living in Fort Worth, Texas

Seniors and their families typically turn to several payment methods to pay for their assisted living in Fort Worth, from private savings to public benefits. Most seniors pull together their savings, retirement income, insurance policies, and funds from federal and state programs for their ideal retirement. In this section, you’ll find helpful information on how to use private pay options as well as veterans benefits, Medicaid, and Medicare to cover long-term care and assisted living costs.

Private pay methods

Seniors and families usually start with private funds when they begin crafting a payment plan for assisted living in Fort Worth. Private pay options include all of a senior’s personal income and asset resources. Income might include savings accounts, retirement pensions, investment returns, and/or Social Security benefits. And, to seniors’ advantage, Texas doesn’t levy a personal income tax, meaning these income sources aren’t taxed at the state level.

Long-term care insurance is another possible option when looking to pay for assisted living care. However, long-term care insurance policies greatly vary in what they cover. So it’s recommended that you consult with your loved one’s policy provider to see if the policy will cover any assisted living costs.

Depending on your senior loved one’s resources and current situation, they may also turn to any of the following methods to cover assisted living costs. Learn more about some potential options for funding your loved one’s ideal assisted living community below:

Approximate number of veterans who live in Fort Worth

Nearly 38% of Fort Worth veterans are 65+.

Senior veterans or their surviving spouses may be eligible to receive pensions or disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to help with any costs of living. The Aid and Attendance benefit is especially important for disabled senior veterans and spouses. This generous benefit can be added to an existing VA pension to pay for anything that improves a veteran’s quality of life — which could include rent at an assisted living community.

To verify your loved one’s VA benefits eligibility status and ensure they apply properly, you should reach out to a local veterans service organization (VSO) before applying. Navigating VA benefits is tricky business. Thankfully, VSOs are nonprofit and vetted by the VA to help you or a loved one obtain benefits they qualify for. They’ll help you successfully file a claim or even appeal a denied claim. Take a look at this service-related disabilities fact sheet to see whether a condition qualifies you or a loved one for VA benefits.

Fortunately, Fort Worth makes it easy to access an array of VA-vetted veterans service organizations (VSOs) at the Tarrant County Veteran Services Office. This office connects veterans to local, regional, and national services offered by organizations like the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Texas Veterans Commission, and others. Reach out to these organizations for benefits assistance using the contact information below.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a public health insurance program that is jointly funded by the state and federal governments. Even though it cannot be used to pay rent at a private assisted living community, it can help cover some long-term health care services and medically necessary care services within an assisted living community.

STAR+PLUS — Texas’ Medicaid program for seniors

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (or HHSC) operates a Medicaid program 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

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 residence, seniors must be eligible for the home and community based services (HCBS) Medicaid waiver program. HCBS waivers enable seniors to receive care services in a residential setting of their choice, like an assisted living community, rather than an institutional setting like a nursing home.[04] If a senior chooses to receive these services in a private assisted living facility, the facility must qualify as a residential or community-based setting. The care services should be provided through a health care agency contracted with the patient’s managed care provider.

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:[04]

  • Personal care services
  • 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:[05]

  • 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 for home and community based services (HCBS) settings: Not all Fort Worth assisted living communities qualify as an HCBS setting; however, some will. In order to qualify, a facility must do the following:[04]

  • 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

If you need help understanding your loved one’s eligible Medicaid benefits, find a Texas Health and Human Services office near you or search for local programs through their services search tool. You can also contact your local area agencies on aging (or AAAs) for assistance in accessing local long-term care services and disability programs. You should also check with your prospective assisted living facility to see if they offer access to Medicaid care services on-site.

Below, you’ll find more resources to help you better understand Medicaid benefits for seniors. You’ll also find valuable search tools that’ll help you locate Medicaid benefit offices in Fort Worth.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that provides coverage to adults aged 65 and older and individuals with disabilities. It can’t be used to cover room and board costs in a Fort Worth assisted living community, but it can help cover some medically necessary care costs within an assisted living facility.

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed the following income limits to qualify for Texas Medicare:[03]

  • $1,215 for gross monthly income and $9,090 for resources as an individual
  • $1,643 for gross monthly income and $13,630 for resources as a couple

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, medical supplies, and preventive services.

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed a monthly income of $1,133 as an individual or $1,526 as a couple to qualify for this program.[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.

For additional assistance with your loved one’s eligible Medicare benefits and enrollment, you can visit the Medicare website or call 2-1-1. Below, you’ll also find applications and resources to help your senior loved one access their Medicare benefits in Fort Worth. If you’d like assistance with Texas Medicare, you can reach out to a local Social Security Administration office, the Texas Legal Services Center, or your local long-term care ombudsman. A long-term care ombudsman can be found at your nearest Area Agency on Aging. They advocate for the health care rights of assisted living residents and help families learn about potential senior care options and payment methods.

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 Fort Worth, Texas. This program is called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project and is commonly referred to as “the Demonstration.” The Demonstration strives to improve service coordination, enhance quality of care, eliminate cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid, and 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. 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, email managed_care_initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In Texas, all assisted living facilities must be licensed and certified by Texas Health and Human Services (also known as HHS) in order to operate and house residents. Texas Health and Human Services refers to assisted living facilities as ALFs and categorizes them into Type A and Type B. Here’s how the two differ:[06]

  • Type A ALFs house residents who don’t require routine attendance and are capable of following directions in an emergency situation.
  • Type B ALFs provide care to residents who require nighttime attendance and assistance for evacuation during emergencies.

Most stand-alone assisted living facilities qualify as Type A, while facilities with memory care and/or other specialized care units typically qualify as Type B. In Fort Worth, assisted living facilities must meet several standards to remain licensed. Below, you’ll find a brief overview of these Texas assisted living standards.

Assisted living staffing and training regulations

  • Assisted living facility managers must complete a course in management of assisted living facilities. The course must cover general assisted living standards, resident characteristics, resident assessments, skills to care for residents, and information on food and nutrition services. Training must also include information on community resources, ethics, financial management, and federal laws — especially accessibility laws under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • Assisted living facilities must have caregivers on-site 24 hours a day. These caregivers are required to complete 4 hours of orientation before assuming any caregiver responsibilities. They must also complete 16 hours of supervised, on-the-job training. Training should cover assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), safety measures, fall prevention, emergency evacuation training, first aid procedures, behavior management, and more. Thereafter, caregivers must complete 6 hours of educational training on a yearly basis.
  • Each facility must have sufficient staff to maintain the facility’s order, safety, and cleanliness. Caregivers must also assist residents with medication routines, meal preparation and accommodations, and laundry.

Assisted living admissions, assessments, and care plans

  • Assisted living facilities should ensure that they can meet the needs of potential residents. They must not admit or retain residents whose needs cannot be met at the facility.
  • Prior to admission, facilities must provide a written admission agreement between the facility and the resident. The agreement should entail the services to be provided and charges for the services. If a provided service or supply can be covered by Medicare, the assisted living facility must let the residents know in a statement. Additionally, communities should secure each resident’s Medicare and/or Medicaid number at the time of admission.
  • Newly admitted residents must have a health examination performed by a physician. It should be performed no later than 30 days before admission or 14 days after. This examination must then be used to conduct a comprehensive resident assessment and create a service plan.
  • Comprehensive assessments must include the resident’s previous place of residence, preferred language, sleep-cycle issues, behavioral symptoms, psychosocial issues, dementia history, activities of daily living patterns, preferred activities, cognitive skills, communication ability, physical function, continence status, nutritional status, medications, health conditions, and other details.[07]

Assisted living facility inspections

All Texas ALFs must pass a life safety code, physical inspection, and health inspection before they are officially licensed. The life safety code ensures a facility’s ability to safely house residents, while the health inspection ensures that it’s equipped to protect resident health. After an initial inspection, facilities are inspected at least once every two years.[08]

During an inspection, Texas Health and Human Services checks for the following in an ALF:[08,09]

  • General facility construction
  • Management of the facility
  • Sufficient staff-to-resident ratios
  • Compliance with employee background checks
  • Implementation of safety and emergency features
  • Proper protection from hazardous areas
  • Documentation of fire drills, system checks, etc.

The general public can use the Long-term Care Provider Search to access each licensed assisted living facility’s most recent inspection report and general facility information. To request any additional information not found on the site, email rsltcr.recordsmgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us.

COVID-19 regulations for Fort Worth assisted living facilities

Fort Worth doesn’t have any specific COVID-19 regulations in place for assisted living communities. However, the state does require all assisted living facilities to develop their own infection prevention and control measures for common infections, including COVID-19. The measures should include guidance on a community’s hygiene practices, touching the following:

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

Because communities are allowed to set their own regulations, it’s best to check with your prospective community to see what current COVID-19 rules they may have in place. You can also visit the COVID-19 informational page on the Fort Worth website to see regular updates regarding local risk levels, testing, vaccinations, and more.

Fort Worth: A city dedicated to senior-friendly initiatives

Fort Worth has become a hub for retiring seniors in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) metroplex. It naturally attracts seniors due to its ideal temperatures, robust health care options, and unique senior-friendly initiatives. For instance, the city enacted an action plan called Age-Friendly Fort Worth in 2017 to increase the quality of life for current and future senior residents. Over the last few years, the plan has focused on implementing aging-friendly initiatives in the following domains:

  • Outdoor spaces and buildings
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Communication and information
  • Transportation
  • Civic participation and employment
  • Housing
  • Community support and health services

The DFW metroplex is also home to Sixty and Better — a nonprofit that empowers older adults to live with purpose, independence, and dignity. The nonprofit offers social support services, local senior programs, and more. Fort Worth also offers a robust senior living scene with a range of assisted living communities to help seniors find the most ideal, supportive environment for their next chapter of life. Below, you’ll find an overview of the most common and enticing features of our partner Fort Worth assisted living communities.

Multiple care levels promote aging in place

More than half of our assisted living partners in Fort Worth offer options for aging in place. This means that these communities offer more than one level of care on-site. Fort Worth senior living communities may provide independent living, assisted living, and memory care services. The most popular combination in Fort Worth is assisted living with memory care. This multitiered approach helps seniors age in place, meaning they won’t have to move if their care needs ever change. This approach also enables aging couples with different needs to live together. For example, if one partner requires dementia care while the other partner only requires light day-to-day assistance, the couple can select a community that offers both assisted living and memory care.

Seniors taking the independent living option can eliminate stressors like home ownership and daily chores and, instead, focus on building friendships and maintaining hobbies. Independent living communities offer residents access to an array of convenient services and luxurious amenities that foster social, physical, and mental health. Assisted living offers residents all of that along with assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and personalized care services, depending on health care needs. Memory care offers the same care services; however, it goes the extra mile to offer personalized, attentive care for residents with memory loss. Memory care staff are trained to provide specialized treatments and therapies for behaviors that residents with dementia commonly experience.

Comprehensive care services enhance quality of life

Fort Worth assisted living communities aim to eliminate excessive travel for routine care needs. To do so, many of our partner communities offer on-site nurses and medical services within a resident’s unit. Some of the most common on-site medical services available at Fort Worth assisted living communities include the following:

  • Medication management
  • Diabetes management
  • Urinary or bowel incontinence management
  • Dental care
  • Podiatry
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies

Some assisted living communities even offer on-site clinics, with optometrists, dieticians, doctors, and other specialists to help residents access optimal care. A few Fort Worth communities also offer a skilled nursing facility on-site to handle more complex medical issues.

Diverse activities and amenities stimulate the mind, body, and soul

Fort Worth assisted living communities offer an array of on-site amenities and a robust calendar of activities to help residents stay healthily active and engaged. Some communities offer researched programs to help seniors thrive, while other communities encourage resident-led activities.

Some of the most common activities you’ll find in our partner Fort Worth assisted living communities include the following:

  • Art and cooking classes
  • Fitness classes (chair yoga, strength training, aerobics, etc.)
  • Devotional services
  • Lifelong learning lectures or classes
  • Interest clubs (book clubs, chess club, gardening club, etc.)
  • Happy hours and/or wine tastings
  • Holiday parties and birthday celebrations
  • Group games (trivia, bingo, poker, board games, etc.)
  • Singing events (karaoke nights, choir groups, etc.)
  • Day trips and outings (local diners, museums, local festivals, etc.)

Seniors are also free to explore on-site amenities at their own leisure. Some of the most common amenities in our partner Fort Worth assisted living communities include the following:

  • Arts and crafts centers
  • Fitness centers
  • Beauty salons and barbershops
  • Libraries and business centers
  • Devotional spaces
  • Gardens with raised gardening beds
  • Game rooms
  • On-site cafes and pubs
  • Common living spaces (sunrooms, lounges, etc.)
  • Courtyards and walking paths

A few of our assisted living partners in Fort Worth also offer some luxe amenities like on-site swimming pools, Jacuzzis, spas, putting greens, and more.
