Senior living facilities in Texas include assisted living as an institution that takes care of providing food, shelter and many more personal services for seniors. There are 4 main types of assisted living in Texas:
- Type A Home – this is for seniors that require minimal assistance with their daily activities and do not need permanent night assistance.
- Type B Homes – these residents require more assistance from the staff and they may also need night assistance if they have to use the bathroom and cannot move.
- Type C Homes – these are licensed and contracted by the DADS (Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services).
- Type D Homes – they are for those who require permanent attention and supervising because of medical issues.
- All the centers must meet the requirements and the standards that have been set by the DADS.
- Once the facility gets a license, it will be inspected by the Texas Department of Human Services, which will investigate complaints and pay unannounced visits to make sure all the standards are met.
- Managers who take care of type A and B have to complete a course about assisted living standards, nutrition and all the other characteristics of a good system of senior living facilities in Texas.
