Celebrated as "The Best of Central Texas," Waco is a medium-sized community founded along the Brazos River. Called Rio de los Brazos de Dios by early Spaniard explorers, the river begins in Mexico and flows across Texas into the Gulf of Mexico, giving Waco a lovely scenic backdrop. Situated between Dallas and Austin, assisted living in Waco offers its residents "big city advantages, without the big city hassles." This community has a diverse and growing economy that offers residents and visitors multiple attractions, activities and scenery to enjoy.
