I visited this facility

Ventana by Buckner was our first choice, but it's a little bit noisy. It was a "no" right away for my parents-in-law from the first visit. It was a wonderful facility, but it's kind of very noisy. It's basically on the highway, so that was absolutely unacceptable. If I'm going to rate facilities and so on, it will be five out of five everything except it's kind of noisy. There's no fresh air, and it's extremely noisy to my taste, too. The staff during the tour was fantastic. They're all great. Everyone was absolutely very good. Everything about it was just brilliant. The building was beautiful. Everything was so well maintained. It's a relatively new building, extremely clean, very spacious, and very modern. Everything was really beautiful. It's like a five-star hotel. They had different activities, but we were interested in their rooms mostly. The food and gym club were great. My mother-in-law loves to swim, and there's a swimming pool. The food was very good.

Our members are a vibrant group and the average age is currently in the mid-70s with many still actively engaged in business while others pursue their avocations full-time. Ages currently range from the mid-60s to mid-90s. We attribute this wide range and appeal to the style of the building, the trend toward urban living and the integrity and experience of Buckner - the organization developing Ventana.

Location, Location, Location! Ventana is right next to the Park Cities, which puts us close to world-class shopping, numerous medical facilities, theatre and arts, golf courses, popular churches and more.
