CCRC Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions
What is assisted living?

A housing option which include 4 levels of assisted living facilities within the state of Texas. We are a Type A facility which means our residents are mentally & physically capable of evacuating the facility without physical assistance, they do not require routine attendance during nighttime sleeping hours and must be capable of following directions under emergency conditions. Assisted Living facilities are designed for those who need extra help in their day-to-day lives but who do not require the 24-hour skilled medical nursing care found in traditional nursing homes.

Are people with complex medical conditions such as diabetes, etc. appropriate for assisted living?

We can’t speak for all assisted livings but we do offer the availability for some special services and special diets. Please refer to our services page for more information Depending on the medical condition and/or conditions we may have services available.

How do we know if our loved one would be appropriate for your facility?

Our Registered Nurse, combined with pertinent information from your primary care physician, will assess the prospective resident to determine if we are able to meet the individual’s care needs. We will work with the family, well before admission, to help answer this and any other questions. We understand the process, and will assist in the transition in any way we can.

Do you have a menu? Is there a good variety of foods and are the meals well-balanced?

We have menus posted in each home. Our residents receive a well-balanced diet consisting of a variety of different foods plus snacks. Meals are served in the common dining room or arrangements can be made for meals to be delivered to your suite. See our services page for additional details on our meal plans and menu options.

What happens if my loved one's condition deteriorates to the point that they are no longer appropriate for an assisted living facility?

We are regularly in contact with families regarding the health and condition of our residents. Our professional staff is trained to recognize and adapt to our resident’s changing needs. When the resident is deemed inappropriate for the services we provide we will work with the resident and their family to search out the options available in the area to meet the needs of the resident.

How does an assisted living facility differ from nursing home?

Nursing homes are designed to care for very frail people that are not able to care for themselves and have numerous health care requirements.

What if my loved one requires hospitalization, and then, after discharge, some rehabilitation?

We work closely with a number of home health agencies in the area. Upon a doctor’s recommendation, the agency of your choice will come to the facility, assess the resident’s needs, and perform these services in their suite. Often, this is paid for under the resident’s Medicare benefits.
