Retirement Community in Austin, Texas
Founded by a small Austin church with a century-old history of leadership in social services, the rich legacy that defines Westminster began in 1967. Our retirement community was the first of its kind in Texas to combine the privacy of apartment homes with the services of a 24/7, on-site health center, and the first to offer the Life Care option to receive and pay for care services.
Today, we are Austin’s premier Life Plan community, a not-for-profit corporation governed by the leadership of a local board of directors and managed by Life Care Services, LLC, the nation’s leading developer and manager of senior living communities.
Creating Extraordinary Impressions.
Today, the word hospitality is overused. In some cases, it has lost its meaning. Here at Westminster, hospitality defines who we are and what we believe. It means meeting everyone with a warm greeting by name, delivered with a smile. Demonstrating genuine respect, anticipating needs and behaving accordingly. It means listening and responding with enthusiasm. Being accountable. Valuing individual differences. Westminster hospitality means moving beyond customer service to a community-wide code of respect that wraps emotion, care, love and compassion into one experience that delivers the ultimate level of service.
A Life Plan Community in Austin, TX
Life Care. Life changing.
You expect the very best in retirement, and Westminster delivers it. With Life Care at Westminster, you’re assured of the smartest, most efficient way to secure your future against the rising costs of long-term care and lead a more carefree, fully engaged lifestyle today.
Why choose a Life Plan Community?
Westminster is a Life Plan Community, also called a CCRC or continuing care retirement community. In our Life Plan Community, you’ll enjoy an expansive residential lifestyle with an array of activities, amenities and social opportunities among active neighbors who share your interests. You’re assured of unlimited access to a full continuum of care on campus if you ever need it, so there’s no need for a major move to a different location. And in the event your spouse or partner needs care, you’ll stay close.
What is Life Care?
At some Life Plan Communities, there’s a predetermined discount for care compared to the open market, and a prescribed number of days that a Resident can take advantage of this discount. At Westminster, we take a top-of-the-line approach. We offer the gold-standard option called Life Care. It’s a comprehensive financial retirement plan with tremendous value and extensive benefits for Residents of our community.
