Top Services & Amenities to Consider in Your Senior Living Search

Finding a senior living community that is right for you takes time. There are many things to consider, starting with the type of community you want to live in. Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs) like Querencia at Barton Creek provide access to the full spectrum of care. Residents also benefit from our location near Austin and the beauty of Texas Hill Country.

We encourage those who are considering living at Querencia at Barton Creek to think about what gives their life purpose. What matters to you? We believe that a senior living community’s services and amenities play a significant role in the happiness and well-being of its residents.

Common Senior Living Services & Amenities

Continuing care retirement communities tend to offer more extensive services and amenities than other senior living communities. Common services at CCRCs include things like security and emergency services, dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner, housekeeping, banking and postal services, on-site social, recreational and educational activities, and transportation.

CCRCs also take pride in the amenities they provide to residents such as fitness facilities, common areas, barber shops and beauty salons, convenience stores and outdoor spaces. Don’t hesitate to ask questions about available services and amenities when evaluating a community.

Questions to Ask About Services & Amenities

While expectations for services and amenities tend to vary, we have compiled a list of questions you should consider asking any senior living community, including Querencia at Barton Creek.

Potential services and amenities questions to ask a senior living community include:

  • What services do you offer that make you stand out from other communities?
  • What amenities are most popular with residents? What amenities are you most proud of?
  • How would you describe the dining experience? Are there varied meal options for residents with dietary restrictions? How often does the menu change?
  • What social activities does your community offer? Is there an activities calendar?
  • What educational opportunities does your community offer?
  • What recreational and wellness activities does your community offer?
  • What are some nearby recreational opportunities? Do you offer transportation?
  • What are some nearby entertainment options? Do you offer transportation?
  • What sort of transportation is available and how frequently is it offered?
  • What is your pet policy? Do you offer any special amenities for pets?

Most communities will even let you try out some of their services and amenities for yourself, within reason. For instance, ask if you can have a meal at one of the restaurants. Or check the entertainment calendar and ask if you can participate in or observe one of the activities.
