Types of care available in San Antonio, TX
I do think they care. Everyone I've met has been very nice and helpful. Overall the facility is very clean, but my loved one's room is not done as well. The food here is pretty good. There are activities and things to do if the residents are so inclined. My loved one has done some outings he enjoyed quite a bit, but he's not the bingo type. One thing I really love about Landon Ridge is they allow pets, and they have a fenced-in pet area where he can take his dog. We got in at a good rate, so I feel like we're getting a good value.
A friend invite me for social hour event and it was so good. The entertainment was great music and everyone were so welcoming. I was super tired but danced my little heart out. I love the vibe and how everyone was so helpful. Definitely coming back again.
Northgate is a rehab and long term care facility with a skilled unit. From my understanding, it is great. My sisters have gone and they really like it. It is small, so they give my mom a little more personal care. She had to move here from assisted living because she was falling frequently. Cognitively and physically she changed a lot in six months, and Northgate has been a good fit for her.

San Antonio nursing homes typically have a heftier price tag due to the fact that they are staffed with doctors and nurses and provide 24-hour medical observation, similar to what you would receive in a hospital. However, if your loved one doesn’t require 24-hour skilled nursing, assisted living facility costs might be more relevant. Here’s a glimpse at average monthly costs of Houston nursing homes versus senior care facilities:
Assisted living communities
Memory care communities
Assisted living and memory care communities can care for your loved one in an engaging environment filled with enticing amenities and activities. Assisted living amenities include movie theaters, fitness centers, holiday parties, person-centered programming, and care services, such as personalized assistance with activities of daily living, medication management, and some basic skilled nursing services. Memory care facilities typically have the same offerings as assisted living facilities with the addition of secured areas, supervision from staff specialized in memory care, and specialized therapies and activities.

There are several ways to pay for a San Antonio senior care facility. Most families combine private pay methods and public pay options to cover long-term care costs. Below, you’ll find several methods and resources to help you understand your payment options, so you can carefully devise a payment plan for your loved one’s senior care facility.
Private pay methods include your senior loved one’s income sources like their savings, Social Security benefits, pensions, and investment returns. Keep in mind that Texas is one of the few U.S. states without a personal income tax, meaning your loved one won’t have to worry about paying taxes on their Social Security benefits, retirement income, or pensions.[03,04] Depending on your family’s resources, other private pay methods may include the following:
Note: Long-term care insurance policies vary in what they can cover, so it’s best practice to consult with your loved one’s policy provider to learn more.
In Texas, all skilled nursing, assisted living, and memory care facilities must be licensed and regulated by Texas Health and Human Services (also known as the HHSC or HHS) before they’re able to provide housing and care services to residents. Additionally, if a nursing or senior care facility wishes to accept Medicaid or Medicare, it must be certified by the HHS to do so. Below, you’ll find a summarized list of the certification requirements for nursing homes and senior care facilities in Texas:
The Texas Health and Human Services Commission 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 and health code requirements. The health code and life safety code require nursing homes and senior care facilities to regulate the following:
You 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.
In an effort to continually enhance the quality of care provided in Texas nursing homes, the Health and Human Services Commission implemented a Quality Monitoring Program (or QMP) to monitor nursing facilities with a history of resident care deficiencies. These QMPs are conducted by nurses, pharmacists, and dieticians who may recommend changes to policies or procedures, conduct staff on in-service training, offer technical assistance, and educate staff about evidence-based best practices, during their visits to facilities.
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 in San Antonio have loosened since the start of the pandemic; however, some practices have been adopted permanently to keep the aging population safe. Texas Health and Human Services (or HHS) has put out a COVID-19 response plan for nursing facilities to keep the state’s nursing home residents safe and healthy.
Currently, all San Antonio nursing homes and senior care facilities must allow visitors, as it is a resident’s right. Facilities are also expected to develop their own policies and procedures for infection control — including COVID-19 and any other spreadable viruses. The updated COVID-19 response plan includes the following practices:
Vaccinations. COVID-19 vaccines aren’t mandatory for residents or visitors.
Masking. Visitors, staff, and residents 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 in all common areas, and sinks must be well-stocked with soap and paper towels.
CDC guidelines. HHS recommends that all Texas nursing facilities default to CDC guidelines when it comes to COVID-19 infection control and vaccination guidance.
Number of in-network assisted living and memory care facilities in the San Antonio area
San Antonio’s 60+ population is expected to grow roughly 20% by 2040. The city of San Antonio recognizes this fast growth and aims to keep San Antonio aging-friendly. The San Antonio Department of Human Services established a Senior Services Strategic Plan in 2019 to improve local senior support services. This plan includes enhancing programs in city senior centers, expanding medical services, and generally supporting local seniors as they age. Furthermore, you’ll find that senior care facilities are expanding their on-site care services and activities to provide seniors with a range of living options and care services.
Check out some of the most unique features of San Antonio senior care facilities below:
To help ensure residents maintain a healthy lifestyle without ever having to move, our partner care communities provide a range of on-site care services — from personal care to skilled nursing care. A majority of A Place for Mom’s partner senior communities in San Antonio offer diabetic care, incontinence care, medication management, and other on-site nursing services. For unique care services not available on-site, some communities even partner with local, home health care agencies. Many communities offer multiple care types on the same campus, such as independent living, assisted living, and memory care. This enables seniors to age in place without having to worry about moving if they ever need more specialized care.
Aging adults are often devoted to a certain faith. Many of our partner senior care communities recognize this and provide a safe and peaceful devotional area, such as a chapel, to enable residents to practice their faith on-site. Some communities will even let the current resident consensus decide what religious services to host. For example, some communities are Catholic-dominant, so they’ll invite a Catholic priest to host a weekly Mass. Communities without a devotional space will often assist residents in practicing their faith by offering rides to a nearby chapel, temple, or synagogue.
As Texas’ city with the largest veteran population, you’ll find that San Antonio doesn’t take military service for granted. In fact, several of our partnered senior care facilities memorialize their local veterans with displays to recognize their years of service. These communities also pull out all the stops during Veterans Day to celebrate and honor veteran residents, both within the senior community as well as the greater community. San Antonio hosts a myriad of Veterans Day events and activities, including a grand parade that some residents attend with friends and loved ones. It’s not uncommon for communities to organize off-site outings to these local festivities for their residents.

San Antonio offers a range of health care options for seniors and veterans. See what top-rated medical centers have to offer:
This hospital is No. 1 in San Antonio and No. 13 in Texas, according to U.S. News and World Report. It’s high performing in 11 procedures and conditions, including diabetic care, kidney failure, and post-stroke care.
This hospital is No. 2 in San Antonio. It’s high performing in nine procedures and conditions, including some cancer surgeries, heart failure, and diabetes.
This hospital is the largest and most robust military health care organization in the U.S. It serves military service members, veterans and their families, and civilian emergency patients. It is known for its exceptional patient-centered care and treating combat causalities and trauma.
Public transportation isn’t the safest, most reliable form of transportation for nursing home residents, so many of our partnered senior care facilities provide modes of transportation to get their residents around safely. In fact, approximately 85% of our in-network assisted living and memory care facilities provide at-cost or complimentary transportation services. Some facilities limit their rides to appointments, while others also offer rides for errands and events.
If the senior is more independent or if you’re a visiting friend or family member, you may want to look at local transportation options provided through VIA Metropolitan Transit. Seniors ages 62+ can ride for only a quarter Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and receive free rides Saturday and Sunday. Seniors must obtain a VIA Reduced Fare ID to receive their senior discounts.
San Antonio is rich with history and culture. Seniors can easily find things to do, even for some of their niche interests. Oftentimes, seniors living in senior care facilities have limited mobility. To engage residents with varying mobility levels, many of our partner assisted living and memory care facilities arrange wheelchair-friendly transportation to off-site activities that accommodate individuals with disabilities. These off-site activities include outings to parks, museums, and other local attractions. Seniors can also enjoy off-site activities with visiting loved ones. Some of the most popular attractions among seniors include the following:
