Wood Glen Court in Spring, TX

My dear friend had to move here after falling at home. She loves it so much she’s trying to get me to move in also! I’ve visited her a few times over the last several months and I have to say I’m impressed by the staff and all of the activities they have going on.

The Pinemont Apartments in Houston, TX

I'm commenting in regards to the 2 reviews that were on this page but I can't see them right now My experience is the people here at the Pinemont Apartments office are friendly, very helpful and answer all your questions. In fact the first person I've talked to when I filled out my application to live here was the most respectful and helpful person ( name [name removed]....), I've ever encountered in all my years of living in apartments, condominiums, Etc, and I mean respectful. I wasn't just another customer or body coming to live in a complex. She was attentive to all my questions and was ready to help make my application process and residence here Pleasant and comfortable. Your ALWAYS notified in Flyers that are put on your door about upcoming events like bingo in the event hall or food to eat on a special day, or the "Annual" Building inspections done by building# with day and date (no surprise inspections). And Pest Control with building#, floor#, and date.

Proverbial Care in Pearland, TX

My 94 year old Mother has been a resident at Proverbial for the past 2 years. One of the first things that drew me to Proverbial was the professional and friendly personality of the owner, [name removed] . We are from Louisiana and used to “Southern Hospitality.” When [name removed] and I spoke on the phone, we had an instant connection. I was vey nervous about placing my mom anywhere, but she assured me that my mom would be well cared for. While the staff has changed over time, I still find new staff members to be friendly and caring. My mom loves to talk and quickly bonds with people. Some of the young ladies say that mom reminds them of their grandmother or aunt so, I know they will take special care of her; that makes me happy. I am always greeted with a warm smile and hello. I love to attend their festivities when work permits. They really take the time to decorate, dress the residents(if theme-related), play music and dance. All residents and families are invited.

How to pay for senior apartments in Houston

Seniors typically combine personal resources to fund senior apartment costs, much like that of rent on regular apartments.

However, if you’re planning for future care needs like in-home care or a move to an assisted living facility, Medicaid or Medicare may help cover some of those related care costs.

Private pay methods for senior apartments in Houston

Many seniors initially turn to personal income resources when planning a move to a senior apartment. Income resources include investments, Social Security benefits, pensions, and savings accounts. Also note that Texas is one of the few states in the U.S. without a personal income tax, meaning seniors don’t have to worry about paying taxes on their Social Security benefits and other retirement income.[01,02] Read on for more ideas on ways to fund a move to a senior apartment:

Note:Long-term care insurance cannot be used to fund senior apartment costs, as these policies usually only cover medical care costs or nursing home stays. However, it may cover in-home care services or assisted living costs, should a senior ever need care within their apartment or require a move to an assisted living facility. Talk to your insurance provider to understand what coverage is included in your policy.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for senior apartments

Senior living apartments in Houston typically have an age requirement. The minimum age is normally 55, with some apartments raising that requirement to 62.  You’ll also find senior living apartments based on income in Houston, Texas. These income requirements are in place to offer affordable options to Houston’s low-income seniors.

Most Texas senior apartments don’t have any special licensing or inspection requirements. For the most part, the licensing and inspection requirements of senior apartments reflect Texas housing laws, such as the Texas Property Code and Fair Housing Act. The purpose of these laws is to ensure apartment residents in Texas are not discriminated against and that they are provided safe, well-maintained housing.

HUD-subsidized senior apartments

Senior apartments subsidized and certified by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (also known as HUD) must be additionally inspected by the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs. These inspections help to confirm whether housing is decent, safe, sanitary, and in good repair. Inspections are performed based on each apartment complex’s prior inspection score. Scores are out of 100, and scores above 90 result in inspections every three years, while scores below 80 result in yearly inspections.

Accommodations and modifications for disabled seniors

Federal non-discrimination laws, such as the Fair Housing Act, Section 504, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), prohibit housing providers from refusing residency to individuals with disabilities. Furthermore, these laws require housing providers to implement reasonable accommodations and modifications in housing, programs, and activities for all tenants with disabilities.

Note that accommodations are changes in the way things are done, while modifications are changes to a senior’s apartment. Below, you’ll find examples of both.

Examples of apartment accommodations:

  • Assigning a parking spot for easy entry to the apartment building
  • Allowing a service animal to reside with a tenant even if there’s a no-pets policy in place
  • Changing the due date of rent to reflect disability income payment dates

Examples of apartment modifications:

  • Installing grab bars in a tenant’s apartment
  • Widening doorways to provide easy wheelchair access
  • Lowering the height of kitchen cabinets to accommodate a wheelchair user

These non-discrimination laws directly apply to senior apartment providers in Houston. Senior apartment property owners are required to pay for such modifications unless providing them would pose an undue financial burden or fundamental change to their programming. For more information, see this infographic on reasonable accommodations and modifications.

COVID-19 regulations for Houston senior apartments

The city of Houston doesn’t have any COVID-19 regulations specific to senior apartments. However, the county’s public health department does provide COVID-19 updates and general information regarding testing, vaccination, and more.
