Buckner Retirement Services is an organization built on faith and expertise. It’s the core of what we provide. Buckner Retirement Services is part of Buckner International, an organization that has been serving senior adults and strengthening families from the beginning to the end of life since 1879. This rich history and mission-driven attitude creates a family atmosphere throughout our senior living communities that will instantly welcome you home.

A Life Plan Community, formerly known as a “Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC),” is a senior living community that offers different levels of living and care on-site. These care options include:

  • Independent Living
  • Assisted Living
  • Memory Care
  • Long-Term Care
  • Skilled Nursing

These options help meet residents’ changing needs in a comfortable environment they already know with people they already trust.

A Life Care Community is also a Senior Living Community that offers the same care options but different financial arrangements. A Life Care Community typically requires an entrance fee in addition to a monthly fee that covers the costs of services and amenities and ensures future care at below-market rates.

Buckner communities serve senior adults who are “62 years or better.” Most residents remain active and are out traveling, volunteering or even working well into their 90s and 100s!

Buckner Retirement Services currently has senior living communities in Houston, Austin, Beaumont, Longview, and San Angelo, Texas.

A religious or charitable foundation usually backs a nonprofit senior living community. Revenue received for services and housing is reinvested solely to improve the community and the organization’s mission. However, for-profit senior living communities are priced to ensure the stakeholder, investors, and managers receive a certain percentage of the revenue.

Five of Buckner’s senior living communities, including Calder Woods Senior Living, are rental communities. As far as the cost of senior living, in a rental community, your monthly fee includes the cost of your apartment as well as access to the services and amenities offered at each community. The Austin, Beaumont, Houston, San Angelo, and Longview communities are rental communities. The sixth community, Ventana by Buckner, which opened in 2019, is a Life Care Community.
