When your loved one moves in, they’ll gain access to exceptional senior care services. Onsite management and leadership teams ensure Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) are seamless, fresh warm meals are served daily, and all medical needs are effectively managed.

Beyond the community, they’ll also fall in love with the surrounding area. We’re located conveniently near Historic Downtown Tyler. This vibrant area is filled with restaurants, landmarks, and shopping options. Additionally, we’re just down the road from two major area hospitals.

Our Lifestyle Directors work diligently to ensure there is never a dull moment for your loved one. They will frequently partake in community field trips to nearby points of interest, engage in Lifelong Learning exercises through our award-winning SPARK program, and catch up with their friends at a weekly happy hour. We also host Theater Tuesday, Domino Tournaments, regular exercise classes, and more!

If all this sounds exciting, that’s because it is. Residents say they love the community’s warmth and homelike feel. By filling out the form on this page, you’re taking the first step toward your free tour and consultation, where you’ll see the community’s magic for yourself.
