If you’re making a shortlist of the best places to retire, where you can find the right mix of culture, lively entertainment, learning and discovery, fabulous food, and the friendliest people, there’s one answer: the Katy-Houston area for seniors.
Helping people feel at home is part of the Katy-Houston history. And it’s still going strong today.
The Katy-Houston area: a bit of history
• The city of Katy is located off Interstate 10, at the three border intersections of Waller, Fort Bend, and Harris counties. It is 29 miles west of downtown Houston and was incorporated in 1945. The name “Katy” is from the “Missouri-Kansas-Texas-Railroad,” which was often referred to as the “K-T” railroad. Katy was first settled in the mid-1890s. For a long time, it was a favored and optimal rice farming community.
• The city of Houston was founded in 1836, and was the capital of the Republic of Texas from 1837 until 1839. As an inland port of the Gulf of Mexico, the greater Houston region spans three counties — Harris, Fort Bend, and Montgomery — in southeastern Texas. During the 1960’s Houston began to flourish as a major city, and Katy would soon follow suit, albeit on a smaller, more modest scale.
During World War II the shipbuilding industry became important for the area. Today the Katy-Houston area flourishes and is home to nationally recognized institutions including the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center, the University of Houston, Baylor College of Medicine, various sports teams, and the world-renowned Texas Medical Center, home of both the world’s largest children’s hospital and cancer center.
The oil and gas industry remains the biggest economic driver in the area. Healthcare, biomedical research, and aerospace are also key industries, as are finance, higher education, real estate, retail, tourism, and manufacturing. Today, Houston is the most populated city in Texas and the fourth-largest city in the United States, while the city of Katy boasts a population of about 17,000, (although the greater Katy area is home to almost 350,000).

Our legacy started 35-years ago when our founder lost his own mother to Alzheimer’s disease.

This community would be the first in a portfolio of successful senior living communities nationwide, catering to individuals with memory loss through exceptional care, personalization, and engagement.
