Assisted Living

Assisted living communities provide organized living communities and health care to your loved one who may require a helping hand with everyday activities such as taking medication or cooking. Assisted living communities frequently offer supervision of care, help with appointments and transit, and chances for social activity. In select instances, communities may provide Alzheimer's care, hospice, or "aging in place". Texas maintains a number of stipulations related to this kind of community. The Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) licenses several types of assisted living communities regulates this type of community. Staff are required to receive training in a number of fields. These include: confidentiality, skills for working with residents, community resources, and accessibility requirements.
