Assisted Living in Texas DefinedThe state of Texas defines an assisted living facility as an institution that provides food, shelter and other personal services to four or more persons unrelated to the owner of the establishment. There are four types of assisted living facilities in Texas:

- Type B Homes admit residents who require more assistance from a caregiver or may need attendance during nighttime sleeping hours. Type B residents may need assistance in transferring to and from a wheelchair.
- Type C Homes are four bed-facilities that are licensed and contracted through the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (DADS) to provide adult foster care services.
- Type E Homes may fall under Type A, B or C facilities and are for those in need of medication supervision and disbursement.
