Independent Living in Texas Defined

Back to top

Texas independent living is the perfect option for senior citizens who would like to lead an independent lifestyle in a cosmopolitan state and, at the same time, have access to useful services and amenities at their residence. Independent living is best suited to senior citizens who are still self-sufficient, and can go about their day without any assistance. Those who struggle with daily tasks and need assistance would be better off in an assisted living residence. You can find Texas assisted living facilities in our Assisted Living category. Seniors diagnosed with dementia or Alzheimer's would also not be suited to living in an independent living community and would be better cared for in a memory care residence. You can find Texas memory care facilities in our Memory Care category.
