Description of The Buckingham


Located in a tree-lined neighborhood under balmy southern skies The Buckingham offers the comforts of a resort lifestyle with an emphasis on the “style.” As Houston’s premier continuing care retirement community, we provide the perfect environment for those accustomed to getting the very best out of life.

Since 2005, The Buckingham has been more than just a senior living community. We inspire you to live an active and gracious retirement, with a full array of amenities and wellness services. And as Houston’s only Life Care community with four tiers of health care, including skilled nursing care, on one campus.

Featured Amenities

Classic design and traditional touches with a modern flare and grace, rarely found, are to be found all around you. Our library is a stocked with a goldmine of literary treasures and we sport a theater for your entertainment. From the gorgeous pool, adorned with comfortable lounge chairs and delicate landscaping to the tranquil putting green where you can keep your golf game sharp, The Buckingham leaves no stone unturned when it comes to your amenities.

Our Executive Chef leaves nothing to chance when it comes to fine dining in the Windsor Dining Room. Meals rival the most gourmet restaurants in Texas, offering only the freshest vegetables and choicest meats. Rotating menus ensure that every meal is a celebration of taste. Still, those looking for a more casual atmosphere can always unwind in the St. James Bistro, savoring a pastry or small bite in the company of friends.

Available Services

You are free to focus on what you love most, whether it’s a day with friends or a trip to the symphony, as are there to manage the details of housekeeping and laundry. Our gated community offers 24-hour security, as well as concierge and valet services to attend to your needs.

You will find The Buckingham is not like most communities. While offering all the comforts and amenities allowing you to enjoy your active retirement, we also provide an unmatched array of health services at the Plaza at The Buckingham including assisted living, memory care and both long- and short-term skilled nursing. Because we offer a traditional Life Care contract, you will have comfort and security knowing your needs will be met no matter what, with no uncertainty that costs will skyrocket.

Visit us at The Buckingham, where we invite you to experience tradition, with flair!
