10 Best Nursing Homes in Houston, TX

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Houston is the largest city in Texas, making it home to a variety of senior care options, including nursing homes, which is commonly used as a blanket term to refer to a breadth of senior living facilities. However, nursing homes are actually a specific type of facility that only provide skilled nursing care — the highest level of medical care available outside of a hospital. These skilled nursing homes or units are for individuals requiring 24-hour medical observation or rehabilitative services. If your loved one doesn’t require the 24/7 skilled nursing care provided in a nursing home or skilled nursing unit and only needs personal care services, they may instead benefit from an assisted living community.

Many assisted living and memory care communities also offer skilled nursing services on-site, in the event of resident illness, hospice, or recovery after a medical procedure. A Place for Mom partners with 35 assisted living and memory care facilities within a 10-mile radius of downtown Houston. These communities offer supportive services for seniors, including assistance with activities of daily living, medication reminders, dining plans, social programming, and other services to support continued health and well-being. This guide includes details on those partner communities as well as hyperlocal care resources specifically for Houston’s senior population.

Costs of nursing homes in the Houston area

Houston nursing homes or skilled nursing facilities typically have increased costs due to the higher level of medical observation residents receive. However, pricing can still vary based on location, provided services, and your loved one’s specific care needs. Additionally, if your senior loved one doesn’t require 24-hour skilled nursing care, you can save a significant amount of money by opting for an assisted living or memory care facility — where they’ll still receive care services, like assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, and some basic skilled nursing services.

Take a look at the average costs of Houston nursing homes versus assisted living and memory care communities:

Nursing homes

  • Semi-private room: $5,262
  • Private room: $7,756 [01]

Assisted living communities

  • Semi-private room: $3,175
  • Private room: $4,461 [02]

Memory care communities

  • Semi-private room: $4,740
  • Private room: $5,762 [02]

How people pay for a nursing home or skilled nursing care in Houston

Seniors and families can pay for Houston nursing homes and senior care facilities using a combination of private pay methods and public pay options. Below, you’ll find several options and resources to help you understand how to pay for nursing home and senior care facilities.

Private pay methods in Houston

Private pay methods will depend on your loved one’s income sources. Sources may include a combination of investment returns, Social Security benefits, pensions, and savings accounts. Other options may include the following:

  • Selling a house. If your loved one is planning a move to a senior care facility, they may be looking to sell their house. Freed up cash from the sale could help fund their nursing home or senior living expenses.
  • Reverse mortgage. If selling a house isn’t an option, a reverse mortgage might prove useful, as it enables your loved one to borrow a loan from their home’s equity to fund senior care costs.
  • Health savings accounts. If your loved one was ever enrolled in a health savings account (HSA) program through their employer, they may use those funds to cover qualifying medical expenses, reducing the burden of senior care or nursing home costs.
  • Life insurance. Your loved one could sell, surrender, or borrow from their life insurance policy to help cover nursing home or senior living expenses. Check with the policy provider to learn about such options.
  • Long-term care insurance. If your loved one has long-term care insurance, they can use it to fund senior care services. Long-term care insurance policies vary in what they can cover, so it’s best practice to consult with your loved one’s provider to learn more.

Note: Texas is one of the few U.S. states without personal income tax, saving seniors from paying taxes on their Social Security benefits and other retirement income.[03,04]

Veterans benefits for nursing homes in Houston

Houston is in Harris County, which is known for having the highest veteran population in Texas. To advise and assist this large number of veterans, Houston offers a number of veterans programs, services, and clinics. The city even has a VA nursing home — Richard A. Anderson Texas State Veterans Home — for qualifying veterans to receive affordable, long-term skilled nursing care within an environment designed to accommodate their unique needs.

If a veteran qualifies for a VA pension, they can use those funds to pay for a senior care facility of their choice. Senior and/or disabled veterans that are enrolled in VA health care may also qualify for the Aid and Attendance benefit, which provides additional funds that can be used to defray senior living costs. The following local resources serve Houston’s veteran population and can help your loved one access their eligible benefits.

Houston Medicaid for nursing homes

Medicaid is a joint state and federal program that provides health insurance to individuals with limited income and resources. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (also known as the HHSC or HHS) is the agency that runs the state’s Medicaid programs. The HHSC offers a number of programs through their local area agencies on aging (also known as AAAs) for seniors 60+, as well as other long-term care programs for low-income seniors. Texas also offers specific Medicaid programs for disabled seniors.

Houston seniors with Medicaid typically receive their coverage through the STAR+PLUS managed care program for 65+ adults and individuals with disabilities. The STAR+PLUS program covers some basic health care services and some skilled nursing services through agencies that have been licensed and certified by Texas Health and Human Services. To receive Medicaid within a nursing facility, residents must have an approved medical necessity, confirming that full-time services are required from a licensed nurse within a nursing facility.

Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) waiver

If your loved one requires medically necessary care but would prefer to stay out of an institutional, stand-alone nursing home or skilled nursing unit, they may benefit from Medicaid’s Home and Community Based Services (or HCBS) waiver program. This waiver program can be used to pay for home health care services in the senior’s place of residence. The place of residence can include assisted living and memory care facilities as long as the facility is contracted by a Medicaid-managed care provider. This enables seniors to receive care within a setting of their choice, as opposed to an institutional setting. Texas Health and Human Services assesses an individual’s need for the HCBS program when they apply for Medicaid.

The Home and Community Based Services (or HCBS) waiver program can help cover the following:

  • Personal home care
  • Medical supplies
  • Dental services
  • Adaptive aids, such as eyeglasses, hearing aids, orthotic devices, and orthopedic shoes
  • Nursing services
  • Respite care
  • Cognitive rehabilitation therapy
  • Physical, occupational, and speech therapies [05]

To qualify for the Home and Community Based Services waiver, seniors must meet the following requirements:

  • Be 65 years of age or older
  • Require an institutional level of medical care, like that found in a nursing home
  • Have a monthly income of less than $2,523 individually or $5,046 as a couple [06]

Note: Not all Houston senior living facilities qualify as an HCBS setting under Medicaid. Qualifying facilities must be integrated into a greater community and provide opportunities for interested residents to seek work or volunteer, engage in local community life, control their personal resources, and receive services within the community. Check with your prospective community if you plan to use Medicaid to pay for care services.

There are many Medicaid resources throughout Houston. Below, you’ll find a few websites that can connect you to nearby offices for assistance with Medicaid applications and services. You’ll also find FAQs and an online application form.

Medicaid FAQs for Houston
Medicare nursing home coverage in Houston

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for adults 65+ and individuals with disabilities. It covers skilled nursing care costs for a limited time. In the state of Texas, Medicare may fully cover up to 20 days in a nursing home or skilled nursing facility and partially cover up to 100 days. After the 100-day limit, Medicare is no longer responsible for any payments.[07]

If your loved one doesn’t require a nursing home level of medical care, Medicare will only help cover some associated medical care costs. The following programs can help your loved one save on Medicare costs and help them apply for benefits:

  • The Texas Medicare Savings Program helps cover some Medicare Parts A and B deductibles, premiums, copayments, and/or coinsurance. Part A covers hospital stays, care in a skilled nursing home, hospice care, and some home health care services, while Part B covers certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, medical supplies, and preventive services. Seniors must meet certain income requirements to qualify for this program.
  • Kidney Health Care is a Texas program that covers costs for some treatments, surgeries, medicines, and premiums for individuals with end-stage renal disease.
  • Texas Health Information, Counseling, and Advocacy Program (also known as HICAP) offers legal advice, referrals, and assistance to Texans who are 60+ and eligible for Medicare.

Below, you’ll find Houston Medicare resources, including local agencies, applications, and more, to help you learn about benefits and apply for them.

Dual Medicare and Medicaid coverage for Houston residents

Texas enables its Medicare- and Medicaid-qualifying residents to receive dual coverage through one joint Medicare-Medicaid Plan (MMP) called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project, commonly referred to as “the Demonstration.” With the Demonstration, the state of Texas aims to improve service coordination, enhance quality of care, eliminate cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid, and reduce costs for the state and federal government.

To qualify for the Demonstration, seniors must meet the following eligibility requirements:

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

If your loved one qualifies for dual coverage, they should be automatically enrolled and may choose to opt out of the Demonstration after they’ve been notified through a letter in the mail. For additional information on the Demonstration, you can email Managed_Care_Initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for nursing homes and senior care facilities

In the state of Texas, all assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing homes must be licensed and regulated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (also known as the HHSC or HHS) before providing housing and care services to residents. Additionally, if a nursing home or senior care facility wishes to accept Medicaid or Medicare, it must be certified to do so by the HHSC. Below, you’ll find a summarized list of HHSC certification requirements for nursing homes and senior care facilities in Texas:

Resident admission processes

  • Using a doctor’s order, skilled nursing facilities must develop a person-centered care plan for each resident, and it must encompass the patient’s dietary, therapeutic, social, psychological, and daily care needs.[08,09]
  • In assisted living and memory care facilities, a similar procedure must be followed, except the facility is not required to use a doctor’s order for care plans. For memory care facilities, there must also be a specialized admissions process in place to identify a resident’s need for memory care services.[10]

Management and staffing requirements

  • Texas nursing homes and skilled nursing units are required to have licensed and registered nurses, certified nursing assistants, and nurse aids on staff. All nursing facilities must also meet specific staff-to-resident ratios (one on-site nurse for every 20 residents at all times).[11]
  • Assisted living facilities require a full-time manager on-site to oversee the facility’s daily operation. These managers are required to complete at least one 24-hour assisted living management course along with their staff.[12]
  • Memory care facility managers and staff members must continually participate in specialized memory care training in order to remain a licensed memory care facility.[13,14]

Safety and healthy environmental standards

  • A certified skilled nursing facility in Texas must meet design, construction, and equipment standards that support the health and safety of residents, staff, and visitors. Each nursing facility must have safety equipment and emergency protocols for accidents, fires, or power outages.[15]
  • Both assisted living and memory care facilities are required to have similar provisions and protocols in place. Memory care facilities must have additional measures in place to prevent residents from harming themselves or wandering. All facilities must allow for safe access to fresh air and common areas for activities.[16]
  • Memory care facilities must designate an activities director to encourage socialization among residents. It’s required for the director to tailor activities based on each individual resident’s abilities. Directors must also arrange for special equipment in order to ensure that all residents can participate in activities.[17]

Nursing home and senior living facility inspections

Texas Health and Human Services performs inspections on all skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory care facilities. These inspections are done approximately every two years and check for a facility’s compliance with the life safety code, physical plant requirements, and health code requirements.[18] The health code and life safety code include a survey of the following in nursing homes and senior care facilities:

  • Adequate staff-to-resident ratios
  • Employee background checks
  • Management of the facility
  • General construction of the facility
  • Safety and emergency features
  • Protection from hazardous areas
  • Documentation of fire drills, system checks, etc. [18]

Families can access a licensed community’s most recent inspection report and general facility information through the Texas Health and Human Services Long-term Care Provider Search. You can also email RSLTCR.RecordsMgmt@hhsc.state.tx.us to request any information not found on the site.

Nursing home reviews

In an effort to continually enhance the quality of care provided in Texas nursing homes, the Texas Health and Human Services Commission implemented a new Quality Monitoring Program (QMP) to monitor nursing facilities with a history of resident-care deficiencies. These QMPs are conducted by nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians. During their inspections, they may recommend the following:

  • Changes to a facility’s policies or procedures
  • The facility’s need for technical assistance
  • Staff trainings and education on evidence-based best practices

Another inspection effort, called the Nursing Facility Quality Review, was spearheaded by the former Department of Aging and Disability Services and the University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing. These reviews were conducted every few years to identify problem areas and provide solutions in Medicaid-certified nursing facilities across the state. The primary goal was to assess clinical topics related to resident care, review medication management, and evaluate residents’ satisfaction with quality of care and quality of life within the facility. The most recent available report was published by the HHSC in 2017.

Families can also visit the federal Medicare website to compare and contrast ratings, staffing practices, and overall quality of Medicare- and Medicaid-certified nursing homes.

COVID-19 regulations for Houston nursing homes

Houston senior care facilities are required to develop their own policies and procedures for COVID-19 infection control practices — including masking, social distancing, and protocols for the use of additional personal protective equipment (PPE). Texas Health and Human Services provides a nursing facility COVID-19 response plan to keep nursing facilities safe. Here are some of those COVID-19 guidelines in place for Texas senior care facilities:

Single icon image

Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccines aren’t mandatory for residents or visitors.

Single icon image

Masking. Visitors, staff, and residents aren’t required to wear masks unless indicated in the facility’s infection control policies and procedures.

Single icon image

Facility cleanliness. Surfaces must be disinfected often, alcohol-based hand sanitizers must be made available in common areas, and sinks must be well-stocked with soap and paper towels.

Single icon image

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

Single icon image

CDC guidelines. Screen visitors and staff for a positive COVID-19 test result and symptoms when necessary. Develop an infection prevention and control program to prevent the spread of infection.

Single icon image

Social distancing. Resident visitors are allowed on-site, as it’s a Texas resident’s right, however, they must follow social distancing guidelines set forth by the facility.

Houston has a robust senior living scene with unique features

As a home to over 270,000 seniors, Houston is home to the largest senior population in Texas. The senior population has grown by over 40% within the last 10 years and is projected to continue increasing. To accommodate the aging population, the senior living scene has evolved to include a variety of options dedicated to addressing the modern senior’s unique needs. Read on for an overview of some unique senior living features in Houston.

Flexible, round-the-clock care

All of our partnered Houston assisted living and memory care facilities provide 24-hour supervision to ensure residents’ needs, premeditated and unprecedented, are met.[02] A majority of communities have an on-call doctor and visiting health care professionals — including dentists, nurses, podiatrists, and rehabilitation therapists. Note, that these visits are covered by Medicare only when deemed medically necessary. All of our partner assisted living communities offer some on-site nursing services, like medication management, hospice care, and medical rehabilitation. Meaning, a resident can receive skilled nursing care from the comfort of their own room or apartment in the community, if ever required.

Engaging activities and amenities

Over a third of our partners have an activity director on-site to help keep residents active.[19] These directors create a calendar of activities filled with fitness classes, social events, brain games, and other events catered to residents’ interests. All of our partner senior care facilities enable residents to enjoy community amenities at their leisure. On-site amenities of our partner Houston senior care communities often include the following:

  • Fitness centers and pools
  • Courtyards with raised gardens, BBQ areas, and walking paths
  • Bistros, lounges, and bars
  • Game rooms and common areas
  • Movie rooms
  • Business centers
  • Libraries

Additionally, seniors looking for off-site activities and other services can benefit from the concierge services available at many of our partnering communities.

Safety and security measures

To help ensure resident safety, many of our partnering senior care facilities in Houston take extensive security measures. Several communities offer enclosed courtyards, secure walking paths, clearly marked exits, directional signs, and other supportive safety features. Senior care facilities also monitor entrances and exits, have 24-hour surveillance, and take a variety of other security measures. Some of these facilities are even designed to accommodate residents with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia and include specialized security features, like wander prevention systems and resident call systems.

Health care for seniors in Houston

When it comes to health care, Houston seniors are in luck. The city offers a wealth of health care options throughout the city. Houston houses the nation’s top cancer center, top state hospital, and two nationally ranked hospitals.

Houston Methodist Hospital

Houston Methodist Hospital is the No. 1 hospital in the state of Texas and Houston, according to U.S. News and World Report. It nationally ranks in 10 specialties, including No. 22 for geriatrics, No. 15 for neurology, and No. 11 for orthopedics.

Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center

Michael E. DeBakey is one of the most popular veteran hospitals in Texas. It is known for providing a wide range of health, legal, and caregiver services.

Transportation for seniors in Houston

Public transportation is often the least favored option among senior residents in senior care facilities, as it isn’t the most practical option in Houston. As a safe alternative, 87% of our partner senior care facilities — namely, assisted living and memory care facilities — provide complimentary or at-cost transportation options to and from medical appointments, errands, and some off-site activities.

If a facility doesn’t offer transportation options, seniors on the more independent side may consider using the local RIDES program. This program is for qualifying Harris County residents, meaning 65+ adults or individuals with disabilities who cannot access public transportation options through METRO — Harris County’s public transit system.

Senior activities in Houston

Houston has become a cultural melting pot in the South, making it home to an abundance of shops, restaurants, and activities. Luckily, Houston offers a range of activities for seniors of all mobility levels. Many senior living facilities will even arrange group outings to nearby parks, museums, restaurants, and other places of interest to residents.
