Did you know that the State of Texas identifies with four different types of assisted living facilities? There are Type A, B, E, and Adult Foster Care.
In general, Type A facilities are for seniors or residents who require minimal assistance. Type B are for those who need more help than the ‘minimal level’ as offered in Type A. “Type E facilities are similar to Type A but are limited to no more than 16 beds, and are not required to have the same type of fire alarm system that Type A facilities are.”
The last category is Adult Foster Care, or Type C – which “are 4-bed facilities that meet the minimum standards and rules for enrollment in the DADS Adult Foster Care home program.”
You can learn about each type, as well as take advantage in the state’s Long Term Care Reporting System site, which also has a fantastic search tool for senior care facilities statewide in Texas, as well as for Fort Worth.
Additionally, Fort Worth is covered by an Area Agency on Aging – the Area Agency on Aging for Tarrant County (AAATC) offering a plethora of services geared towards Fort Worth’s seniors, families and caregivers.
The facilities listed on this page may all be contacted directly and safely. Several video tours also appear on this page! Intro by D. Besnette

Hi everyone – this is David, I’m the editor for Assisted Living Directory.
I know that researching assisted living for a loved-one is stressful and time consuming, and often leads to more questions than answers. I took part in helping to research care for a family member when she became ill, and I quickly realized that our family needed help from a qualified expert.
I put our ‘advisors’ to the test, and used their experience, knowledge and connections to sort through a lot of the questions, hurdles, and options.
You can read about my experience using this service in our blog.
This service is especially helpful if you are doing senior care research for a friend or loved one remotely (from outside of Fort Worth).
Our advisors are trained and qualified to help you, and to answer your questions about assisted living and long-term care in Fort Worth and Tarrant County.
