We’re delighted you’re considering a move to Texas Masonic Retirement Center! Your commitment to the Masonic fraternity has allowed us to provide a lifetime home for men like you and for your families for more than 100 years. We are proud to offer this same legacy to you.
Independent Living Status – Apartments & Duplexes
If you choose to live in our apartments or duplexes, you will need to be capable of easily managing the independent activities of daily living. This means you do not need help with washing, showering, eating, handling finances, or managing medications.
If you choose to live in our custodial Nursing Area, we will provide staff to help you with the necessities for daily living. You will not need to meet the independent living requirement. However, we do not offer medical treatment or a highly supervised setting as may required for those diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, severe dementia, or other serious medical problems.
