There are a variety of retirement communities available for seniors, from independent apartments to assisted living communities. The freedom of independent living is an attractive option for seniors who want to maintain their autonomy and live life on their own terms. Rather than giving up their independence, seniors can enjoy the benefits of a retirement community while still having control over their daily routine and lifestyle.

Buckner offers senior independent living options at our six Texas communities. We strive to help residents in all of our programs maintain as much independence as possible. At our locations, we offer a range of activities and amenities to support a fulfilling and active lifestyle for independent seniors. Our communities have spacious living arrangements, beautiful outdoor areas, and luxury amenities for residents to enjoy. Take a tour today by calling 214.227.7182.

The Freedom of Independent Living

Independent living is designed to cater to seniors who can manage their daily activities but want a community that offers convenience, social opportunities, and safety features. It allows seniors to live autonomously while enjoying the benefits of community living.

Maintaining independence is crucial for seniors’ mental, emotional, and physical health. It fosters a sense of dignity and self-worth, encourages an active lifestyle, and significantly enhances mental well-being. Seniors in independent living communities often report a renewed sense of freedom and happiness, thanks to the autonomy they are able to maintain.

Modern Independent Living Services and Amenities

Today’s independent living communities are not just about a place to live; they offer a range of services and amenities that cater to seniors’ needs. At Buckner, residents enjoy:

  • Transportation – Residents can easily attend appointments, run errands, and visit local attractions with our scheduled transportation services.
  • Housekeeping – Say goodbye to the burden of household chores. Our housekeeping team takes care of all weekly cleaning tasks.
  • Dining options – Enjoy restaurant-style dining and a variety of nutritious meal options prepared by our in-house chefs.
  • Social activities – Stay engaged and active with a calendar full of social events, classes, and outings planned by our dedicated activity directors.
  • Community services – Beauty and barbershops, libraries, and fitness spaces are just a few of the convenient services our independent living communities offer.

Residents can also rest assured knowing that our secure communities have 24-hour emergency response systems and trained staff available to assist with any needs.
