Texas Panhandle 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 Texas Panhandle is a region of the U.S. state of Texas consisting of the northernmost 26 counties in the state. The panhandle is a rectangular area bordered by the state of New Mexico to the west and the state of Oklahoma to the north and east. The southern border of Swisher County is considered to be the southern boundary of the region. Its land area is 66,883.58 km˜ (25,823.9 sq mi), or 9.864 percent of the state's total. There is an additional 162.53 km˜ (62.75 sq mi) of water area. Its population as of the 2000 census was 402,862 residents, or 1.932 percent of the state's population. Curiously, the Panhandle is distinct from North Texas, which is more to the southeast.

Most of the western half west of the Caprock escarpment and north and south of the Canadian River breaks is rather flat terrain. The largest city in the Panhandle is Amarillo, Texas. The relatively flat land gives way to Palo Duro Canyon southeast of the city, the second largest canyon in the United States.
