About Franklin Park Alamo Heights

Modeled to capture the unique culture of San Antonio, this community exudes a sense of history and timeless presence through its thoughtfully designed features. The resident experience begins with a welcoming arrival courtyard, featuring the cooling sounds of a classic water fountain surrounded by native plants. As soft music wafts through the air, a person immediately has a unique sense of place. At the arrival Porte Cochére, a covered loggia escorts the resident past a serene garden courtyard before entering the reception foyer. Once inside, the interior spaces feature a relaxed and sophisticated feel reminiscent of a grand estate where charming rooms become engaging spaces. There is a sense of history, a play of light and pleasant textures.

We offer mild memory care apartments, also known as the “bridge”. Unique to Franklin Park, the bridge apartments offer mild memory care for residents who benefit from person-centered care from licensed staff skilled in the treatment of dementia-related diseases. Mild memory residents are physically able to do many tasks and activities independently but may need some redirection and reminders. “Wander-guard” bracelets are available for loved ones who may be at-risk for exit-seeking and the bracelet will trigger an alarm if they exit the building. Floor plans and features are similar to assisted living apartments and include a designated outdoor courtyard, dining room, living space and pantry.

ACTIVE, FIT, AND HEALTHY – FOR LIFE

We know a big part of enjoying retirement comes from staying active, engaged, and healthy. Because we want to offer our residents a culture focused on the best possible quality of life, we make health and wellness an important part of everyday living.

FIT AT EVERY AGE

We’re proud to offer senior-friendly fitness centers at every one of our communities. Residents can pursue a self-guided, independent fitness program at their own pace, using treadmills, recumbent bikes, and free weights. Our fitness centers make it easy to maintain or improve physical fitness in a casual atmosphere, and offer a fun way to socialize with friends, too.

Come on in, the water’s fine! For those in the mood for a dip, some of our communities also offer swimming pools and swimming-related social and fitness activities, such as water aerobics.

EAT WELL, LIVE WELL

Eating well goes hand in hand with physical fitness, and our chefs make it their mission to serve a variety of healthy options to please the palate and nourish the body.

We believe eating right can be as delicious as it is nutritious. Our meals are created to help our residents meet their dietary fitness and nutrition goals, with special consideration for health concerns such as diabetes, gluten sensitivity, weight management, high blood pressure, and heart disease.

EASY ACCESS TO MEDICAL CARE

For non-emergency medical care, we can provide a list of qualified, independent health professionals in the local area, including doctors, nurses, and physicians’ assistants. We can also help schedule an appointment, and even arrange transportation to and from an office visit.

In addition, many of the providers on our list of recommended health professionals will make house calls upon request, so residents can still get the medical help they need.

You don’t have to search far to find the perfect blend of proper nutrition, social and physical activity, and readily available medical care. Choosing a

Franklin Parkcommunity is the smart way for seniors to secure a happier – and healthier – retirement.
