2021 Top Texas Senior Living Communities

Everyone gets older, but some of us need a little extra help during our senior years. If you’re looking for senior living and care for yourself or a loved one it can be overwhelming. What level of care is needed? are all services included? What happens if more care is needed? Researching all the local options is a task that can be confusing and cumbersome.

Thankfully, we did all the research for you and ranked what we consider the best living in Texas. We did our best to find communities in the most popular parts of the lone star state. There are 15 communities listed here, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other great communities to choose from. Contact us and let us know or search our senior living directory.

Tip to Pay for Senior Living in Texas: Medicaid
Depending on the senior living community, the monthly costs can add up. Medicaid helps folks with limited assets and low incomes cover health costs. It is a joint state and federal program, and some of the health costs Medicaid helps to cover include long-term care. Each state has its own guidelines, but either through the general Medicaid program or via Medicaid waivers, many senior living costs are covered. The Texas state Medicaid office has additional information.

Ranking The Best senior Living Facilities in Texas

Ranking anything isn’t easy, along with facts and figures there’s also opinions to consider. We researched hundreds of reviews from Google and Facebook. We then compared them with community ratings and comments from our own users for a final score from one to five. Finally we made sure there were no major violations or complaints with TX Health and Human Services.

The median monthly price for Texas assisted living communities is about $2,600. Costs can fluctuate due to cost of living from one area to another. The level of care needed by the senior resident will also majorly factor into the final sticker price. Independent living is the cheapest since no care is provided, but memory care and skilled nursing care will costs thousands more a month.

Vintage Health Care Center Denton TX

What residents and loved ones have to say about Vintage Health Care Center:

I’m in the Village at Denton. The staff is very good and friendly. There are six floors with, I think, 15 people per floor. They have a barber shop, a workout room, and their own restaurant, and activities where they go to different parks and different restaurants about once a week. There are some restrictions, like you can’t smoke around their facility and you have to keep your dog quiet. There are about eight tables in the dining room and six people seated per table.

Parklane West Healthcare Center San Antonio TX

What residents and loved ones have to say about Parklane West Healthcare Center:

The facility itself is absolutely beautiful. My grandmother was very sick and would love just to sit in their garden area. She stated once that the air just smelled differently there and it was so peaceful. The staff was very accommodating to all of her needs. I personally was touched when I showed up and everyone knew who I was because they had taken the time to get to know her. They would ask her about her pictures which would help her to reminisce on great past memories. I would recommend this facility for anyone.

New Hope Manor Cedar Park TX

What residents and loved ones have to say about New Hope Manor:

We moved Mom to New Hope Thanksgiving week. She was immediately greeted by compassionate professionals who assessed her needs, explained and provided their plan of care. After being there about 4 months now we have seen amazing improvement in mom’s condition. During the COVID pandemic Kay Bargo, the Social Worker, offered to help us Video chat on Facebook with Mom. We were able to see and talk with Mom with Kay’s help. It was great to see Mom smile. Mom loved the food which looked plentiful and nutritious. I thank God for the aides, nurses, dietary staff and administrative team for their kindness and very thoughtful care of my Mom who is the nicest person you could ever know.

What residents and loved ones have to say about Le Reve Rehabilitation & Memory Care:

My mother has been a patient here 2 times now, once back last year and now here recently. I can not say enough about the staff and administration here. The facility is modern and so clean. The nurses and aides are so attentive and you can tell they really love what they do. The therapy department is hands down the best I have ever seen, so motivating and have such a great attitude that really pushed my mom to get better. When it comes time to having to decide to put my mom somewhere permanently, we will definitely choose Le Reve again.
