If you're retired, Dallas has the perfect place to call home.
Change the way you look at retirement living by enjoying the best part about not working anymore—a carefree lifestyle. The idea of retirement becomes less appealing once you realize you are still under the pressure to handle the daily responsibilities of owning and maintaining a home. Lawn care, cooking, cleaning, and household repairs are still on the to-do list, whether or not you go to work every day. As a result, many retired adults are considering more convenient living arrangements designed to help them make the most out of their retirement years. New and improved retirement communities are popping up throughout the Dallas area offering amenities, comfort, and convenience that rival what you’ll find at the most luxurious of resorts.
Should your health needs change, these premier retirement communities also address the special health care and medical issues of aging adults. Whether you are looking for retirement living options for yourself or a loved one, Dallas has the perfect place to call home.

Each community offers an abundance of services and amenities, including guidance for caregivers, support groups, 24-hour access to visit your loved one, and private dining rooms for intimate family meals. Memory care residences are just that—homes. The highly trained staff operates as guests in each resident’s home – not the other way around. Each residence has on-site, licensed nursing staffs with specialized expertise in memory care as well as Life Enrichment Coordinators dedicated to providing a variety of activities at different acuity levels. Chef-prepared family meals, dietary management, and care plans are developed individually for each resident. Based in Dallas, family-owned-and-operated Autumn Leaves was founded 10 years ago on the principle of providing the highest-quality, home-like environment to individuals requiring specialized care due to Alzheimer’s and dementia-related conditions. Autumn Leaves designs, builds, and manages its own facilities in order to maintain the highest-quality standards in management, staff training, and residential care.
