Fortunately, there are dozens of reputable assisted living communities throughout Dallas. In this guide, we’ll examine the top nine Dallas assisted living communities to help you find the perfect spot for yourself or a loved one.

Our Methodology: How We Chose the Best Assisted Living Communities in Dallas

Picking the right assisted living community for yourself or a family member is no small decision. There are various factors you’ll need to consider, including your budget and the desired lifestyle. That’s why we spent 50 hours researching and comparing the best assisted living communities in Dallas.

When choosing the best assisted living in Dallas, we compared the following criteria:

  • Cost: We focused our search on communities that offer the best value. In other words, the quality of each facility on our list either matched or exceeded its prices. We also searched for some of Dallas’ most affordable options.
  • Medical care: The degree of medical care can vary from one community to the next. Many of the best facilities have medical personnel on standby.
  • Reviews: Good reviews do not guarantee good quality, but we consider assisted living communities that consistently receive positive reviews from trusted sources.
  • Amenities: Having more amenities does not always mean having better amenities, but many of the best assisted living communities offer a wide array of services and perks designed for seniors.
  • Location: We selected communities with accessibility and proximity to shopping and entertainment, which can drastically improve the quality of life for residents.
  • Staff size: We chose assisted living communities with high staff-to-patient ratios.
