There is a misconception that growing older must mean giving up on things that mean the most to you. Ventana by Buckner believes that these years of your life should be spent living comfortably, spending time doing what you love the most. So instead of letting go, you’ll be gaining—gaining more freedom, convenience, and comfort.
As a full-service Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) serving Dallas/Fort Worth, Ventana offers a premier senior lifestyle in Dallas and encourages Members to take an active role in planning for the rest of their lives. Members fall in love with their luxury independent living apartments, and join an array of Life Care and wellness programs designed to complement and empower their lifestyle.
As you start planning for your future, consider how a senior independent living community like Ventana could enhance your quality of life and give you the opportunity to participate in a fulfilling, upscale environment.
Sense of Community
As seniors grow older, it can become more difficult to get out and about. Some people stop driving, or do not have the desire to go out as much as before. This can put seniors at risk for social isolation and increased feelings of loneliness.
These feelings can even lead to serious health risks. According to the National Institute for Aging, social isolation and loneliness lead to higher risks for a variety of physical and mental conditions: high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, a weakened immune system, anxiety, depression, cognitive decline, Alzheimer’s disease, and even death.
Ventana, like many CCRCs, offers seniors companionship through other Members in the community, bonding opportunities through programs and classes, and allows them to participate in pastimes they enjoy. The long-lasting relationships that can be made within the community are sure to bring joy to Members’ lives for more meaningful and fulfilling days.
Access to Exceptional Care
At Ventana, we know there are tasks that seniors have to take care of on a daily basis that can become challenging as they age. They may have physical limitations, or just need help remembering to take medication that’s necessary for their health.
Ventana Health Services offers a full range of Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care Services, Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation care in a convenient residential setting. An array of outpatient services are also available, including physical, occupational and speech therapy available to Ventana Members. Members will select the type of health care they need.
As a premier CCRC, Ventana provides a well-trained staff to help with daily activities, such as dressing, medication assistance and more. The staff ensures that a Member’s privacy is always protected.
When joining a luxury CCRC like Ventana, the comforts you’re used to in your current home don’t have to be sacrificed. The amenities in this community set a new standard of senior living. You’ll enjoy a five-star experience of high-rise living, with elements such as fine dining, roof garden terrace, heated indoor pool, underground parking, and many, many more.
Privacy doesn’t have to be compromised, either. Your home will be your own private space, without all the maintenance that typically comes along with it. No more repairing appliances, no yard work to deal with—just time to spend doing what you love the most, in and out of your home.
If cooking is your thing, your fully equipped kitchen will provide more than enough space to do so. But if not, enjoy the exceptional variety within the community, including decadent meals prepared by Chef Stephan Pyles.
And when you’re ready to explore, you’ll have access to reliable and safe transportation to get to downtown Dallas and neighboring cities.
Investment in the Future
You may not have health issues or a need for a lot of assistance right now, but a CCRC opens up a multitude of options for the future if your needs should change over time. A Member may join Ventana for some independent living perks, but mainly to enjoy the freedom without having to worry about the time and effort it takes to maintain a home.
However, a CCRC allows you more freedom for the rest of your life. In the unfortunate event that you need health care immediately, you’ll be taken care of with Ventana’s unparalleled and comprehensive continuum of care. Through a collaboration with Baylor Scott & White Health, Members will have health service options that go above and beyond the first-class services of the community.
Peace of Mind
All of these factors work together to give the ultimate peace of mind for Members, friends and family. Seniors don’t have to be worried if something were to happen to them, or concerned about how or when they’ll receive healthcare.
Family will rest assured that their loved ones are being well-cared for in a setting where they are happy and comfortable. And a supportive community of Members will be there, helping them make the most of each day.
A move into senior living is a move that benefits you, your health, your wellness—as well as your future. Joining Ventana may fit in with your future plans and allow you to live the happy, fulfilled life that you deserve.
