Nursing Homes Houston, TX

Nursing homes in Houston offer a range of coordinated services that are designed to meet the physical, social, and emotional needs of seniors who have a disability or chronic illness. This type of community is sometimes classified as a skilled nursing facility. Houston has a number of these facilities that provide a standard of care higher than one might receive in a regular nursing home. Nursing Home residents require 24-hour nursing care to perform activities of daily living (ADLs). According to Genworth, the median monthly cost of a nursing home in Houston is $5,200 for a semi-private room and $6,200 for a private room. A Place for Mom can help you or your loved one find the best nursing homes in Houston, Texas.
