What Are The Buckner Promises?

The Buckner Core Principles are five outstanding promises that we make to each member of our community every day.


One of our Buckner Core Principles is to be of service to others. The highest reward to the staff at Ventana is helping someone, making them smile, and putting them at ease. Ventana members know there’s always someone available to listen and help.

To ensure you know everything is taken care of, we have a program called Signature Buckner Hospitality, which includes:

  • 5-STAR customer service
  • Lifestyle and wellness programming
  • Housekeeping and linen services
  • Maintenance-free lifestyle
  • Salon/spa services
  • Transportation services
  • Expert medical care
  • Specialized care plans for each member

We serve each member of our community with all the grace and care they deserve.


At Ventana, senior safety is a critical part of our community. Because we are responsible for hundreds of members and staff, we work to prepare for every contingency. We regularly go over and practice all our plans to ensure we’re always ready for any medical emergency or natural disaster.

If the unthinkable happens and you suddenly need additional care, we offer a full continuum of on-site options. These services cover everything from help with daily activities to maintain your independence to specialized long-term round-the-clock care for a variety of conditions, including Alzheimer’s or dementia.


Ventana works to encourage independence and growth for our community. We offer a variety of floor plans and flexible dining options, as well as activities and services, programs, and amenities. We will also create a personalized plan that will let you have as much independence and freedom as possible.


Now is the time to pursue one of your long-term interests or experience something new. However, there’s never been a better way to start than by making a move to Ventana, where purpose is one of our core principles.

Here you’ll discover an exciting lifestyle that adds value to your life. We feature various programs and events along with exciting neighbors who are just as excited about this new journey as you are.

We encourage you to pursue your lifelong learning goals at one of the local colleges or universities. For instance, you may want to take an art history class or begin working on your short story skills. As a partner in Buckner International Ministries, we can also provide you with travel and volunteer opportunities around the globe.


We know it’s essential to surround yourself with a community of friends. At Ventana, connection is a vital core principle. We believe that when you live in an active and social community surrounded by neighbors enjoying life, it’s hard not to make a friend or ten.

Even if you don’t consider yourself an outgoing person, we offer a variety of clubs, committees, senior activities, and faith-based services. Furthermore, we have partnerships with local community organizations and school volunteer programs, and you can make spiritual connections through our faith-based service. All you have to do is follow your interests, and you’re sure to find someone who shares it.
