    After a year of Emerald Oaks living, I am convinced that this is the most responsive staff in the business. Whether its getting that "second" cup of coffee, or valet parking your car on a rainy afternoon, these guys do it gladly and with enthusiasm. They even hung my pictures! The new apartments come with modern,...

    We chose The Waterford on Huebner, and my parents loved it. The place was great and was not on a busy street. It was light and airy. All the people I dealt with were extremely friendly and personable. They don’t have a pool, but they do have different activities, like games and outings.

    We ate lunch at Waterford on Huebner, and the food was very good. The rooms were fine and don’t have kitchens, which for us is a plus because we don’t have to have a kitchen. The staff was very friendly. I would surely recommend this place, especially for someone who has a budget.

    Our visit to Madison Estates was informative. I was pleased with what was given to us. The apartments that we saw were clean, nice, and bright. Everything was pretty well taken care of. The only social activity we saw was a luncheon gathering. I was surprised that the average age was in the 80s, but they did not look that old. I liked what I saw, but I did not see everything.

Information About Independent Living in San Antonio

Information About Independent Living in San Antonio

San Antonio Independent Living

San Antonio, Texas, is located in the southern part of the state about two hours’ drive from Corpus Christi on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and a slightly longer distance, about three hours’ drive, from Nuevo Laredo on the Mexican border. The population density here is approximately 2,800 per square mile, similar to that of Wichita, Kansas. The cost of San Antonio independent living is appealing, with a Consumer Price Index of 60.75, including rent. This means that the cost of living here is 60 percent what it is in New York City. The climate may be described as semi-arid. Snow is uncommon and entire winters may pass without any form of freezing precipitation. Summers are hot, with temperatures rising to over 100 Fahrenheit.

San Antonio Attractions

This town is the epitome of San Antonio independent living. Millions of people each year visit the River Walk, an urban sanctuary winding its way below street level along the central river. Designed by a young architect in 1929, the walk offers tinkling waterfalls, serene pools, outdoor art and exquisite landscapes. Mission San Antonio de Valero, known more commonly as The Alamo, was erected in 1718 as the city’s first mission. As famous for John Wayne’s portrayal of Davy Crocket as it is for its fall to Mexican General Santa Anna’s army in 1836, the mission provides a living monument to a major milestone in both Texan and American history.

San Antonio Senior Activities

The Parks and Recreation Department hosts no fewer than four adult and senior centers for San Antonio independent living. For a nominal cost, individuals between the ages of 18 and 59 can have access to all four facilities, while those age 60 and above pay less. The centers provide a wide range of activities designed to help participants exercise both their minds and their bodies. Residents can take part in “Weed Wednesdays” at Phil Hardberger Park, when people pull together to remove weeds and plant new material native to the region. Fishing, hiking and other outdoor sports are also on offer.

San Antonio Medical Facilities

San Antonio Independent LivingClearly, access to high-quality medical care is an essential prerequisite for San Antonio independent living. In addition to providing both outpatient and inpatient medical services and acting as a center for graduate medical education, San Antonio Military Medical Center is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. This 450-bed hospital is capable of expanding to 653 beds in the event of a disaster. The University of Texas Health Science Center is another world-class facility providing services to San Antonio residents. Its mission statement is to improve lives through excellence in health care, community engagement, research and education.

San Antonio Transportation

Ease of getting around is another critical feature of San Antonio independent living. The city’s public transport services are coordinated by VIA Metropolitan Transport. This agency provides bus and streetcar services within the downtown area. A low-cost Day Pass is available for added convenience. Equipped with two-way radios, the city’s Ambassadors Amigos are there to assist stranded pedestrians and motorists, serve as safety escorts and act as information guides. In an emergency, they are also qualified to provide first aid until professional assistance arrives on the scene.

Summing Up

The climate, low cost of living and proximity to both the sea coast and the Mexican border conspire to make San Antonio independent living a highly desirable prospect. Residents can further their historical education by visiting the Alamo or rest and relax on a leisurely stroll along the River Walk. Local seniors can help keep the city green and pretty and enjoy fishing and hiking. High quality medical care is never far away and the area is easy to navigate, both with and without the help of Ambassadors Amigos.
