Discover the many ways to pay for senior living

Planning ahead can better position you to make good choices for your loved one’s care in the future. But if your aging family member needs care now, there are ways to finance the cost of long-term care through a combination of approaches.

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is long-term care for seniors who are generally active and independent, but who require increased supervision and help with some daily tasks. Staff can assist residents with activities of daily living like dressing, bathing, and medication management. Assisted living is also a good option for seniors seeking more socialization. Services and amenities in assisted living facilities often include:

  • Housekeeping
  • Nutritious meals and snacks
  • Help with personal care
  • Laundry
  • Social activities and outings
  • 24-hour emergency response

How people pay for assisted living in Houston

There are several ways a person can pay for assisted living, so it’s important to maximize options by planning early. Many families use a mixture of private methods and public sources to finance assisted living costs. In this section, we’ve compiled a variety of methods and resources to help you pay for assisted living in Houston.

Private pay methods in Houston

Private pay methods are usually considered first when families begin crafting a payment plan for assisted living. Your loved one’s methods will depend on their financial situation and can include the following:

  • Personal income and savings. Seniors can combine their savings accounts, investments, Social Security benefits, pensions, and more to cover assisted living costs.
  • Health savings accounts. A health savings account, also known as an HSA, is a tax-free personal savings account that can be used to cover health care costs. If your loved one has an HSA, they may use it to cover assisted living costs.
  • Proceeds from selling a house. A moving senior might be selling their house, resulting in freed-up cash that could be used to fund assisted living costs.
  • Reverse mortgages. Selling a house may not be an option for some seniors. In that case, a reverse mortgage can help free up some cash for assisted living.
  • Life insurance policies. Some life insurance policies can be sold, surrendered for cash, or borrowed from to fund assisted living.
  • Long-term care insurance. Long-term care insurance policies can help cover assisted living care costs, such as assistance with activities of daily living, physical therapy, skilled nursing care, and more. However, many policies vary on what they cover, so it’s crucial to contact your policy provider to learn what is covered.

It’s also noteworthy that Texas is one of the few U.S. states without a personal income tax, saving seniors from tax burden on their Social Security benefits and other retirement income.[01,02] And, if a senior’s medical expenses total more than 7.5% of their adjusted gross income, they may be tax-deductible on federal tax returns.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for assisted living facilities

In the state of Texas, all assisted living facilities must be licensed 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 two types — A and B. Type A ALFs provide care to residents who don’t require routine attendance overnight and are capable of following directions in emergency situations. Type B ALFs care for residents who require nighttime attendance and assistance for evacuation during emergencies.

All licensed assisted living facilities must pass a life safety code, physical plant inspection, and health inspection before they are officially licensed. After the initial inspection, facilities are inspected at least once every two years. The life safety code is used to ascertain whether the facility is built to safely house residents, and the health inspection helps confirm that a facility is equipped to protect residents’ health.

Texas Health and Human Services inspections check for the following in a facility and more:

  • Sufficient staff-to-resident ratios
  • Compliance with employee background checks
  • Management of the facility
  • Facility construction
  • Implementation of safety and emergency features
  • Protection from hazardous areas
  • Documented reports of fire drills, systems, checks, etc.

To access a licensed assisted living facility’s most recent inspection report and general facility information, visit the Texas Health and Human Services Long-term Care Provider Search. To request any information not found on the site, email RSLTCR.RecordsMgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us.

COVID-19 regulations for Houston assisted living facilities

Houston itself doesn’t have any COVID-19 regulations in place for assisted living facilities; however, the Harris County Public Health Department provides COVID-19 updates and general information regarding testing, vaccines, and more.

For the state, Texas Health and Human Services (also known as HHS) developed a COVID-19 response plan for assisted living facilities. They regularly provide updates through COVID-19 FAQs to help facilities stay up to date with practices.

HHS requires assisted living facilities to develop their own policies and procedures regarding masks, social distancing, and additional protocols for personal protective equipment (PPE) to help ensure resident safety. They must also allow all residents to have visitors, as it is a resident right.

Texas COVID-19 guidelines include the following:

Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccinations are voluntary for residents and not required for visitors.

Masking. Residents and visitors aren’t required to wear masks unless indicated in the facility’s infection control policies and procedures.

Facility cleanliness. Frequently touched surfaces must be disinfected often, alcohol-based hand sanitizers must be available, and sinks must be well-stocked with soap and paper towels.

Staff safety. Staff must wear personal protective equipment when necessary and follow infection control policies and procedures during an outbreak.

Unique assisted living features in Houston

Houston’s population of 2.2 million is quickly rising and contributing to the growth of the aging population because many seniors prefer to remain close to their families. Houston seniors often seek assisted living options in neighborhoods close to their loved ones. Luckily, the city has no shortage of options. From luxury communities downtown to traditional communities in suburban neighborhoods, seniors have a range of options to choose from. Check out some unique Houston, Texas, assisted living features below.

Robust on-site amenities and activities

Due to high temperatures in Houston, many residents prefer to have as many on-site activities, amenities, and conveniences as possible. Our in-network communities do a great job of this, as many of them offer everything from beauty salons and fitness centers to theaters and libraries. Texas regulations hold assisted living communities to a high standard, as they require communities to provide weekly social programming. Many communities take this a step further and provide a rotating calendar of events and activities on a monthly basis.

On-site medical care services

Many Houston families and residents feel safer when care is available on site. Especially when an on-site medical director oversees care plans and an on-call doctor is available to attend to any urgent needs. Approximately 35% of our in-network communities have an on-site medical director, while 80% of them have an on-call doctor. Several communities also have visiting dentists, nurses, and physical, occupational, and speech therapists. These visits are covered by Medicare when medically necessary for residents.

Cultural and religious accommodations

More than half of our in-network communities employ staff members that speak at least one other language, with Spanish being the most popular one. A small number of our Houston partner communities also employ staff fluent in sign language, Mandarin, and French. Additionally, several communities enable residents to practice their faith by offering a place of worship, devotional services, religious study groups, or visiting chaplains. Some communities are even faith-based, enabling seniors to reside and practice their faith with like-minded individuals.

Assisted living in the surrounding Houston suburbs

As seniors age, many of them prefer to move away from Houston traffic. Luckily, there are several suburbs nearby with a range of assisted living options. In recent years, Sugar Land and Katy have become some of Houston’s most popular suburbs and retirement destinations. These suburban cities come with a lot of open space, enabling seniors to live in large, nationally recognized, and award-winning assisted living communities that house unique amenities and multiple care types under one roof.

Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center

Transportation for seniors in Houston

Assisted living facilities are home to seniors with a range of mobility needs. Some seniors are wheelchair users or require transfer assistance, while others just need some safety accommodations like grab bars, ramps, etc. To accommodate these various needs, most assisted living facilities provide their own complimentary transportation, at-cost transportation services, or easy access to public options.

Houston public transportation options include METRO, which offers buses, rails, and paratransit services to Harris County residents. Another option is RIDES, offered through Harris County Transit, for residents who aren’t able to access METRO services. RIDES service is provided to qualifying individuals with disabilities and 65+ adults.

  • Outdoor activities. Nature-loving seniors can enjoy visits to the Houston Zoo or Houston Botanic Garden, where they can view flora and fauna from around the world. Both the zoo and garden are wheelchair accessible. The Houston Parks and Recreation Department also maintains several parks, trails, tennis courts, and pickleball courts for active seniors to enjoy.
  • Shops and restaurants. There are an abundance of malls to shop and foods to try in Houston. From antique malls to designer boutiques, the Houston shopping scene has it all.
