Carefree Living in a Caring Community at Elmcroft of Austin
Our senior living home has been part of the vibrant city of Austin, Texas since 1997. With our caring, family atmosphere and culturally rich location, Elmcroft of Austin offers a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores. Best of all, our rates are all-inclusive, so there’s no increase in rate if a resident’s needs change.
We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly. Shared and private apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service as needs arise. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our patio garden, community gardens, screened-in back porch that faces our beautiful courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.
What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Austin is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.
While cost may not be the most important factor when considering living options for your loved ones, it can be complicated. Planning for the varying expenses of utilities, maintenance, housekeeping, food and entertainment–and adding the cost of care–can seem overwhelming. As an all-inclusive community, there are never any surprises on a resident’s monthly senior living bill from Elmcroft of Austin. You can budget the exact amount every month for exactly what your loved one needs to continue enjoying life without worry. That predictable pricing means peace of mind when it comes to budgeting.

One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. Our 24-hour resident care staff, as well as our on-site licensed nurse, visiting in-house physician, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.
