We really liked Heritage Tomball, but we thought it was more of an independent living than assisted living. The place was very nice, but we did not think that it would be the place for my grandma. I think my grandma needed more assistance than what this place offered. The assisted section was just very expensive. The s...Read more Heritage Tomball reviews

The average monthly rate for assisted living in Tomball is $3,863, which is almost on par with the state median of $3,795 and just a bit less than the national average of $4,000 per month. The price is comparable in some cities in this region of Texas, such as Beaumont ($3,900), San Antonio ($3,975) and College Station ($3,995). The rate for assisted living drops to an affordable $2,975 in coastal Corpus Christi but increases sharply to the statewide high of $5,190 in the capital city of Austin.
Note: Data for senior care costs wasn’t available for Tomball, so data for the nearby metropolitan Houston area was used instead.
The Cost of Assisted Living in Surrounding Areas
Prices for senior care in Tomball range from a high of $5,095 per month for 24/7 skilled care in a nursing home to just $1,300 for Monday through Friday adult day health services. The average rate for assisted living is in between at $3,883, while homemaker and home health aide services are slightly higher at $3,909 and $4,099, respectively.
Seniors should note that rates for in-home care only reflect the service hours provided, whereas the price for assisted living includes housing and food. Those who choose in-home care are still responsible for their day-to-day living expenses, such as groceries, household upkeep, taxes and utilities, resulting in a much higher total cost for care.
Senior Care Cost Comparison Chart
The national health insurance program, Medicaid, provides vital coverage for low-income Americans, including families with dependant children, expectant mothers, adults with disabilities and senior citizens. The program is co-funded by the federal and individual state governments. Each state administers its own Medicaid program in accordance with federal guidelines.
In Texas, the Medicaid program administered by the Health and Human Services Commission provides primary, acute and long-term care coverage for more than a million disabled, blind and elderly state residents through managed care plans.
These plans provide a wide range of benefits, such as doctor and specialist care, emergency treatment, inpatient and outpatient hospital services, diagnostic tests (including lab work and X-rays), prescription drugs, ambulance and nonemergency medical transportation and institutional care in a nursing home.
Qualifying for Medicaid
Tomball residents aged 64 or younger and chronically disabled or aged 65 or older can qualify for Medicaid long-term care if they’re American citizens or legal immigrants and:
Seniors and disabled adults approved for Supplemental Security Income benefits are enrolled in Texas Medicaid automatically by the Social Security Administration. When determining eligibility for other applicants, Medicaid looks at all sources of income, but disregards a number of assets, including:
Qualified Income Trust
Those who satisfy the eligibility requirements for Medicaid coverage except for income may be able to lower their monthly earnings to the $2,313 limit with a Qualified Income Trust. Using this option, excess monthly income must be deposited into an irrevocable trust account and only be removed to pay for allowable medical and care-related expenses.
If a married applicant’s spouse doesn’t require Medicaid coverage, only the applicant’s income is counted. Per federal laws enacted to provide spousal living and resource allowances, the non-applicant may be awarded up to $3,160.50 of their applicant spouse’s monthly income along with a maximum of $126,420 of the couple’s joint assets.
Seniors can apply for Medicaid online or contact Your Texas Benefits helpline at (877) 541-7905.
STAR+PLUS Waiver Program
Tomball residents eligible for the full benefits of Texas Medicaid and in need of long-term care can apply to the STAR+PLUS waiver if they want to live in the community instead of an institutional nursing facility. To qualify for the waiver program, applicants must be assessed as requiring a nursing home level of care but functionally capable of living in a community setting. Approved applicants receive all-inclusive medical coverage and long-term care services that may include:

Eligible applicants are limited to $2,313 in monthly income if single or $4,626 if married. Assets are limited to $5,000 for individuals and $6,000 for couples.
