Another option available is to call the
Texas Department of Aging and Disability
Services (DADS) at 800-458-9858. While
state law prohibits agency employees from
recommending one facility over another,
they can answer the following recommended
questions about any such facility:
• Have there been any proposed license
terminations in the past two years?
• How many complaints have been filed
in the past year?
• How many complaints in the past year
have been found to be valid?
• How many deficiencies have been cited
in the past two years?
• How many “quality of care” violations
have been cited in the past two years?
• When did DADS last visit the facility,
and what was the purpose of the visit?
• Has the owner of this facility had
other facilities recommended for license
The answers to these questions, combined
with observations and impressions made
during facility tours and staff interviews will
ease the task of selecting the right nursing
ALZHEIMER’S AND DEMENTIA
Residents diagnosed with Alzheimer’s
disease or another form of dementia need
specialized care. Assisted Living Facilities offer services and separate facilities
for residents with early onset symptoms,
but because of the progressive nature of
the disease, it may become necessary to
transfer the resident to another facility that
provides the appropriate care.
Facilities specializing in the treatment of
Alzheimer’s and dementia should provide
a treatment plan that considers not only
the resident’s medical needs, but also the
needs of the entire family with social
services, professional consultations and
individualized treatment reviews. Within
the facility emphasis should be placed on
providing a calm, soothing environment
that is sensitive to the needs of the patient.
Please visit the Area Agency on Aging of The
Capital Area at www.aaacap.org for additional information on care for the elderly.
