No better retirement community in Austin!

I relocated my father from Amarillo to Austin Continental and he loved everything about it, the staff was great, the people living there became good friends and he loved the food! He loved all the activities and the comradery of all the lovely people, he enjoyed everyday. He considered the Continental as his home in every way. We can’t say enough good things about the love and kindness he received from everyone he had the privilege to know there. Thank you all so much!

Review of The Continental - Austin, TX

This place seemed to be in transition. Most people we met working there were new. The apartments although older were spacious. Jennifer was very pleasant the residents sweet but the food was so very awful. The price was affordable

Best Choice

I am an 85 year old resident of The Continental Retirement Community. After my husband died in 2010, I lived alone for four years in my home in De Soto, Texas. Even with many friends, I found living alone was not the best situation for me. I have a son, his wife and one grandson living in South Austin, so this was the ideal place to resettle. Together we looked at several other facilities. The decision was easy, we found The Continental ideal for my needs. The thing that attracted me most was the friendliness of all the staff, the servers in the dinning room and all the residents we met. Another big attraction was having my own washer and dryer in my apartment. This has meant so much not having to go down the hall to do my laundry. I have lived here for almost three years and still love where I live. I feel as if God led me here to this great place. I am looking forward to many years at The Continental.
