Texas Assisted Living Communities
WHAT IS ASSISTED LIVING? Assisted living is often viewed as the best of both worlds. Residents have as much independence as they want with the knowledge that personal care and support services are available if they need them. Assisted living communities are designed to provide residents with assistance with basic ADLs (activities of daily living) such as bathing, grooming, dressing, and more. Some states also allow assisted living to offer medication assistance and/or reminders. Assisted living communities are different from nursing homes in various ways. For one, assisted living facilities do not offer complex medical services. Assisted living communities range from a stand alone residence to being one level of care in a CCRC (continuing care retirement community). Assisted Living facilities and communities offer a more home-like atmosphere with apartment styles that typically include studio and one bedroom models. Kitchenettes usually feature a small refrigerator and other small appliances.

The “Lone Star State” of Texas is like an entire country unto itself. It was the largest state until Alaska joined the U.S. in 1959; and it is still one of the most varied. Stretching 790 miles at its most distant points, Texas is home to beaches and swamps along the Gulf of Mexico; fertile, rolling hills in its heartland; arid desert in the extreme west; extensive forests in the east; windswept plains and rugged canyons in the north; and mountains rising almost to 9,000 feet.
Texas is home to some of the largest cities in the United States, as well as some of the most historic. Houston and the Dallas-Ft. Worth metroplex dominate the economic life of the state. Austin in the heartland, El Paso in the west, Amarillo in the panhandle, and Corpus Christi on the coast, are among the many other major cities.
The warm weather, spaciousness, exciting cities, and entertainment aspects are just of the few of the reasons Texas is a wonderful place to retire. There is no state income tax and cost of living is lower than the national average.
