How to Find the Best Assisted Living Facilities in North

Today’s post explains how to find the best assisted living facilities in Southlake and Denton using Texas Health and Human Services resources and free placement services from Always Best Care.

What Is An Assisted Living Facility (Alf)?

“Assisted living” is a catchall term used to describe a wide range of facilities that provide individualized health and personal care assistance in a homelike setting. Assisted living facilities (ALFs) may be large apartments or private residences, and service offerings may include meals, bathing, dressing, toileting, and medication management.

The Texas Health and Human Services website defines two types of facilities based on standards for emergency evacuations and nighttime attendance as follows:

  • Type A facilities—meant for individuals who do not require routine nighttime attendance or intensive evacuation support in an emergency (i.e. they are capable of following emergency evacuation directions independently)
  • Type B facilities—meant for individuals who require both staff assistance to evacuate in emergencies and nighttime attendance

Additionally, there are Type C facilities, which are defined as “four-bed facilities that meet minimum standards for enrollment with DADS as an adult foster care facility.”

If you aren’t sure which assisted living facility best fits your needs and budget, Always Best Care can help. Call 940-241-2273 or visit the Always Best Care Southlake-Denton website to book a free assisted living consultation and placement.

The Texas Department of Health and Human Services offers some guidance for those seeking assisted living services on their website. They also provide a complete list of assisted living providers with an active license as of 07/24/2020, which you can comb through manually and call-up one-by-one.

Unfortunately, neither resources provide much direction, placing the onus on you to do the legwork. But if you’re already balancing caregiver duties, family, and career, that’s easier said than done. That’s where we can help.
