Abba Care Assisted Living is a retirement community in Garland, Texas founded in 2003 by a home health nurse. Our gorgeous redbrick, Colonial-style community sits on manicured acres in a recently restored, historic area of Garland. We believe excellent care begins with excellent architecture, which is why our community was built from the ground up with safety and accessibility in mind. Our experienced caregivers are trained to provide assisted living services, as well as respite services, for residents 55 and above. Residents can often be found enjoying each other’s company in our beautifully decorated communal areas, or eating a delicious meal in our elegant dining room. Give us a call to learn more about our quality services and gentle caregivers.

Living Amenities

Residents can choose from three floor plans for our beautiful studio suites, ranging from 250 to 335 square feet. Each suite contains a spacious living room and bedroom area with space for a queen bed and two wingback chairs, plus a private bathroom with grab bars. Our furnished rooms provide a quiet, serene area for residents to watch TV or spend quality time with loved ones. Each room has controlled climate units, emergency lights, and sliding bathroom doors for wheelchair access. Our all-inclusive pricing structure provides assisted living and respite residents with cable and speedy internet access.

Dining

Our staff serves three hot and delicious meals each day for residents to enjoy alongside friends within our community. Chicken fried steak, pizza, and Hawaiian skewers are just some of the meals served in our beautiful dining room, where residents can eat to the sound of a piano. Caregivers are attentive and available quickly on standby for residents that need eating assistance. On special occasions, our staff serves an elegant holiday dinner and decadent cakes decorated with bright frosting and colorful sprinkles.

Indoor Common Areas

Our indoor common areas were designed for residents to relax, spend time with friends, and stay active. The carpeted living room is spacious enough to accommodate several wheelchairs at a time and provides an area for residents to watch TV, read, or exercise. Lined with bookshelves, the living room also serves as a space where residents may begin their morning by watching the news while having a cup of coffee alongside friends. Houseplants tucked away in corners of the room give this space a natural, calming atmosphere.

Our community kitchen and dining room is often filled with residents playing games, enjoying snacks, or sipping tea while telling stories. An adjacent space filled with bright, natural light contains several wingback chairs and coffee tables with flower centerpieces for residents to kick up their feet and take a nap. During December, the space is home to a large Christmas tree, decorated by residents, with a myriad of gifts under the branches.

Outdoor Common Areas

Accompanied by caregivers, residents can enjoy the weather on our acre of land. For Mother’s Day celebrations and luaus, we create charming, exciting outdoor spaces with comfortable seating and shade from the sun. A restored barn from 1936 sits just behind our community and is often admired by residents on safe strolls around the community.

Activities

It is our pleasure to plan a variety of activities for our residents and their families to enjoy. Loneliness and boredom are just a few of the issues we can encounter as we age. We strive to provide countless opportunities for residents to engage in conversation with each other. Our outside luaus feature delicious Hawaiian-inspired dishes, games, and refreshing drinks. Residents can often be found cheerfully laughing in the dining room while completing puzzles or playing Yahtzee. In December, residents exchange gifts, enjoy holiday casseroles, and sing carols. During spring, we move outside to dye eggs and invite families for Easter egg hunts, as residents relax in the shade, sip lemonade and offer tips to their loved ones. Hallway mini golf is also a crowd favorite — residents line the halls with their putters as caregivers arrange makeshift holes.

We take pride in keeping our residents happy with clever and stimulating activities!

Personal Services

Our residents deserve to kick up their feet and relax — no worrying about pesky chores! Each resident receives private laundry services so that their garments aren’t mixed with anyone else’s. Our knowledgeable staff also assists residents with basic activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, and proper grooming. We make it a priority to create a sterile yet comfortable environment for everyone within our community.

Local Area

Garland, Texas is located in Northeast Texas in Dallas County. The city is rich with historic sites and shopping opportunities. Downtown Garland Station is a light-rail depot that reopened in 2002 and continues to serve residents of the city. The Garland Landmark Museum, just eight minutes away from Abba Care Assisted Living, features artifacts and documents dating back to 1850. Embree Park is just one mile away and is perfect for nature lovers who prefer to spend mornings bird watching. In case of emergency, City White Rock Emergency Room is within 15 miles of our community.

Medical Services

Our experienced caregivers and residents make a dynamic duo when it comes to approaching their health care. We interview incoming residents to learn about their needs and preferences. While some residents would prefer to have their medications organized, others may prefer to manage their daily doses themselves. Our customizable care creates an environment where residents feel heard and understood. We offer a variety of transfer services. Our staff is trained in helping residents approach their walker, as well as assisting them with hoyer lifts. For residents who need toileting assistance, we’re prepared to help in any way possible, making sure residents are clean from top to bottom! We’re nurse-operated and nurse-owned, so we’re ready to rise up to any change in a resident’s needs.

  • Out of the 3 communities I toured on Thursday, this was my least favorite. [Name removed] was very knowledgeable and answered my questions. The facility was dim and dirty. My suggestion would be to renovate the facility and not the old barn on the property.

  • Don't go to rehab or nursing home...go to ABBA Assisted Living

    We moved my mother into ABBA Assisted Living in Garland, TX [date removed]. We moved her from rehab and she died Feb. 14 one month from her 97th birthday. Please know that rehab sounds good, but for older patients, they put them in diapers and it's downhill from there. Everyone at ABBA were extremely nice to her and our family. It's a small facility owned by a former nurse and clients can age in place. We were very pleased with our choice. Wish we had gone to ABBA earlier, and certainly instead of rehab! The quality of her life would have been much better. [Name removed]
