Texas Nursing Home Providers Speak to Challenges in Nursing Home Care as Aging Population Rapidly Increases Across State

Granbury, TX – The Republican candidate for the state representative race in legislative district 60, Mike Lang, visited Senior Care Harbor Lakes Plaza Nursing in Granbury this week to see firsthand the latest care strategies in long term care and how direct caregivers are able to increase health outcomes and the quality of life for Texas seniors.

“The most recent population data indicates that 3.2 million Texans are currently over the age of 65 – a number that is expected to grow to 7.5 million by 2040.  Similarly, the percentage of people ages 85 and older is expected to double over the same span,” noted Vicki Black, Administrator for Harbor Lakes.  “Meeting with our state lawmakers and showing them firsthand the quality of care we provide as well as discussing the challenges long term care providers face with an influx of elderly residents in the future, is the first step to ensuring the very best care for Texas seniors.”

Harbor Lakes Plaza Nursing is a Senior Care Centers nursing facility that promotes personalized nursing care in addition to medical and rehabilitation treatments. Providing meaningful activities for residents designed to stimulate the mind and strengthen the body and delivering consistent, compassionate care targeted to improved health and quality of life is the ongoing mission at Harbor Lakes.

“I want to thank all the hard working staff of the Senior Care Harbor Lakes Plaza Nursing center for taking time out of their busy day to give me a tour,” said Lang.  “I look forward to working with them the next legislative session.”

Black noted, It is critical that Texas long term care providers and state leaders work together to create stability in the long term care sector and we appreciate candidate Lang for taking the time today to see our facility and meet with the heart and soul of our nursing home – our caregivers and residents.”
