10 Best Independent Living Communities in Fort Worth, TX

Answer a few questions to get personalized results

Who are you searching for?

Fort Worth, Texas, entices the aging population with its warm summers, mild winters, enchanting natural areas, and variety of senior-friendly activities. And, with its close proximity to Dallas, the area has become known as the Dallas-Fort Worth — or DFW — metroplex. This greater metroplex enables seniors to reap the benefits and conveniences of a big city like Dallas and still enjoy the suburban, small-town feel of Fort Worth.

Independent living in DFW is an expansive senior living scene that meets the aging population’s unique needs. In fact, Fort Worth itself offers nine independent living facilities within a 10-mile radius of Northside Fort Worth. This number may seem small at first, but that’s because these options are concentrated to the Fort Worth metro specifically. Seniors can find many more senior living options if they expand their search into the greater DFW area. Our Dallas and Arlington independent living pages showcase these options.

In this all-inclusive guide, you’ll learn about the various types of independent living communities available to seniors in Fort Worth. We use our proprietary data to bring you real resident ratings and information on each community’s cleanliness, activities, amenities, and services. You’ll also get access to information on average local independent living costs, how seniors typically pay, senior-specific resources, and senior-favored activities in Fort Worth.

How seniors pay for independent living in Fort Worth

Seniors typically use a combination of their private income sources and senior benefit programs to pay for independent living in DFW. Social Security is one benefit program commonly utilized to pay, while senior veterans can also use benefits provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). To free up some additional cash, seniors can save on their health care costs and pay for potential senior care services in the future by using Medicaid or Medicare. We cover all these methods and more in this section.

Private pay methods

Seniors usually gather private funds over a lifetime to prepare for their ideal retirement. Private funds are sometimes necessary to partially cover the costs of a resort-style independent living community. Private funds might include personal savings accounts, investment returns, pensions, 401Ks, and more. Depending on circumstances, many retirees also look at the following methods for privately paying for their ideal independent living community:

VA benefits
40000

If you’re a veteran or a surviving spouse of a veteran, you may be eligible for funds provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). In this section, you’ll learn more about VA benefits, how they can be used to pay for your ideal independent living community, and how you can access your benefits as a senior veteran in DFW.

Can I use VA benefits to pay for independent living?

The VA provides various pensions and benefits, and this income may be used to pay for independent living senior community expenses. It’s most beneficial for seniors with a disability to look into the Aid and Attendance benefit, as it’s one of the most generous benefit programs. Aid and Attendance can be added to an existing VA pension to cover anything that improves a veteran’s quality of life, which could include independent living or senior care services.

Do I qualify for VA benefits?

To verify your VA benefits eligibility status, you should reach out to a local veterans service organization (VSO) before applying. These organizations are vetted by the VA to help veterans obtain the benefits they’re entitled to. They’ll help you successfully file claims or appeal denied claims. You can also view this service-related disabilities fact sheet to see if your condition qualifies you or a loved one for VA benefits. This guide can be a starting point for you, but it’s best to work with the expert VSOs.

Furthermore, Fort Worth makes it simple for seniors to access VA benefit programs, as most of these VSOs are available at one location — Tarrant County Veteran Services Office. This office connects senior veterans to local, regional, and national services offered by groups such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, Texas Veterans Commission, and more. Reach out to any of these organizations for benefits assistance using the contact information below.

Medicaid

Medicaid is a public health insurance program jointly funded by the state of Texas and the federal government. It cannot be used to pay for rent at a private independent senior living community in Fort Worth. However, it can be used to cover some third-party home health care services within an independent living community, if that’s where the senior already calls home.

What is Texas’ Medicaid program and do I qualify?

Texas’ Medicaid program for seniors 65+ and individuals with disabilities is called STAR+PLUS. It’s operated by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC). Medicaid can cover some long-term health care and medically necessary in-home health care services within a patient’s residence of choice.

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must not exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for STAR+PLUS:[03]

  • $2,742 as an individual
  • $5,484 as a couple
How can I use Medicaid to plan for future care needs?

STAR+PLUS offers a home and community based services (HCBS) waiver program to help seniors remain in the residential setting of their choice while receiving care. This program helps seniors avoid institutional settings like hospitals or nursing homes by providing medically necessary in-home health care services.

The services can be provided in an independent living community, if that is where the senior already calls home. However, you should check with your prospective community’s policies beforehand, as they may have a policy on their residents’ ability to care for themselves.

The types of care costs that may be covered by Medicaid’s home and community based services (HCBS) programs can include the following:

  • Personal care services
  • Home health care services
  • Health care services
  • Respite care services
  • Rehabilitative services
  • Medical supplies

As of 2023, seniors 65+ must meet the following requirements to qualify for the HCBS waiver program:[04]

  • Meet STAR+PLUS’ income requirements
  • Require an institutional level of care typically found in nursing homes

In Texas, seniors have several ways to access their Medicaid resources. You can search for a Medicaid benefits office near you, apply online, or read online guides below to learn more.

Medicare

Medicare is a federal health insurance program that provides coverage to adults 65+ and individuals with disabilities. It cannot be used to pay rent for Fort Worth independent living communities, but it can help cover some medical care costs. Medicare can help cover hospital stays, hospice care, certain doctors’ services, outpatient care, rehabilitative care, medical supplies, and preventive care services.

As of 2023, seniors must not exceed the following income requirements to qualify for Texas Medicare:[03]

  • $1,215 for gross monthly income and $9,090 for resources as an individual
  • $1,643 for gross monthly income and $13,630 for resources as a couple

Resources include all of your assets, like your savings accounts, properties, investments, etc. To further save on Medicare Parts A and B premiums, deductibles, copayments, and/or coinsurance, seniors can apply for Texas Medicare Savings Program.

As of 2023, seniors mustn’t exceed the following monthly income limits to qualify for the Texas Medicare Savings Program:[03]

  • $1,133 as an individual
  • $1,526 as a couple
What if I qualify for both Medicaid and Medicare?

If you’re a Fort Worth resident who qualifies for both Medicare and Medicaid, you might qualify for dual coverage. Texas offers a joint Medicare-Medicaid Plan (MMP) called the Dual Eligible Integrated Care Demonstration Project for six counties — with Tarrant County being one of them. This project is commonly referred to as “the Demonstration,” and it aims to offer the following:

  • Improved health care service coordination
  • Enhanced quality of care services
  • Eliminated cost shifting between Medicare and Medicaid
  • Reduced costs for the state and federal governments

To qualify, a senior must meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Be enrolled in Texas’ STAR+PLUS program for a minimum of 30 days
  • Have Medicare Parts A, B, and D, as well as receive full Medicaid benefits

Qualifying seniors should automatically be enrolled in the Demonstration. If you’d like to opt out, you can do so after you receive a letter of notification in the mail. If you’d like additional information on the program, you can email managed_care_initiatives@hhsc.state.tx.us.

Below, you’ll find applications and resources to help you access Medicare in Fort Worth. If you’d like assistance with Medicare in Texas, you can reach out to a local Social Security Administration office, the Texas Legal Services Center, or the nearest local area agency on aging.

Understand Texas laws and regulations for independent living communities

Fort Worth independent senior living communities are not regulated by a state agency unless they share a building or campus with an assisted living care facility. Stand-alone independent living communities without shared assisted living spaces are treated the same as general apartment complexes. This means they must comply with general Texas housing and rental standards, such as the Texas Property Code and Fair Housing Act.

Housing laws help ensure that residents of any rental community are not discriminated against and are provided with safe, well-maintained housing. Additionally, most Texas independent living communities have a minimum age requirement of 55, with some raising it to 62.

Regulations for independent living communities with assisted living units

If an independent living community shares its building or campus with an assisted living community, the area designated for assisted living and any shared areas must follow assisted living facility regulations. Assisted living regulations are set by Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) to help ensure a proper environment for aging seniors. If you’d like to learn more about Texas’ assisted living regulations, visit the laws and regulations section of our Fort Worth assisted living page.

Regulations for stand-alone independent living facilities

In Texas, stand-alone independent living communities are required to comply with the state’s housing and apartment regulations for landlords and tenants. This means landlords must grant tenants some specific rights, provide disability accommodations, and maintain all facilities. Below, you’ll learn about your rights as a resident in an independent living rental community.

What are my rights as an independent living tenant in Fort Worth, Texas?

It’s useful to learn about your tenants’ rights, as it’ll help you find a safe and satisfactory living situation while you rent. Here’s a brief overview of some important tenants’ rights in Texas:[05]

  • Residents have the right to ask their landlord to repair structural problems that risk their health and safety. And landlords must make a diligent effort to repair the problems at hand.
  • Residents may terminate their lease if a problem that affects their health hasn’t been resolved after two notices to the landlord within a reasonable timeframe — usually seven days.
  • Residents may hire an external contractor to fix the problems at hand if their landlord fails to resolve issues after multiple notices within a reasonable timeframe. Residents can then submit their expenses to the landlord to deduct from their rent.

Before attempting to terminate a lease or hiring an external contractor, it’s strongly recommended that you reach out to an attorney or a local tenants association for advice. Consulting a housing expert will prevent you from breaching any lease agreements, leading you to the end result you desire. It’s also recommended that tenants provide multiple written notices to their landlord and keep a copy of each notice as proof.[05]

If you’re seeking more information on your rights as a senior apartment tenant, be sure to read the Texas Tenants’ Rights Handbook.

Can I ask for disability-related accommodations and modifications in a Fort Worth independent living community?

In Texas, federal nondiscrimination laws — such as the Fair Housing Act, Section 504, and Americans with Disabilities Act (or ADA) — protect tenants from being discriminated against due to their disability. Furthermore, these laws require housing providers to provide reasonable accommodations and modifications in housing, programs, and activities for individuals with disabilities.

If you’re a senior with a disability, you have the right to request reasonable accommodations and modifications within your independent living community. Reasonable accommodations are defined as changes to facility policies. Here are some examples of reasonable accommodations that could be provided by a rental community:[06]

  • Allowing a service animal to live with a resident even when there’s a no-pets policy in place
  • Assigning a parking spot for easy entry to the resident’s building
  • Changing the due date of rent to reflect a resident’s disability income payment dates

Modifications are structural changes to common areas and individual units. Some examples of reasonable modifications in line with the ADA include the following:[06]

  • Installing a specialized smoke detector for a resident with a hearing impairment
  • Adding a wheelchair ramp to enable a disabled resident to easily access shared spaces and participate in resident activities
  • Installing grab bars or widening doorways in a resident’s unit to accommodate wheelchair users

These nondiscrimination laws apply to all rental communities in Fort Worth. Property owners are required to pay for such modifications unless providing them would pose an undue financial or administrative burden. If you’d like more information, see this detailed infographic on reasonable accommodations and modifications for Texas renters.

Who do I contact for additional questions or concerns while renting in Texas?

For general concerns, Fort Worth offers an overview of renter’s rights and guidelines on its city website. For further questions regarding a lease or contract, the city recommends that renters reach out to the following agencies:

  • Better Business Bureau
    1612 Summit Ave.
    Fort Worth, TX 76102
    Phone: 817-332-7585
  • Legal Aid of NorthWest Texas
    600 E. Weatherford St.
    Fort Worth, TX 76102
    Phone: 817-336-3943

You can also view rental inspection scores on the Fort Worth city website. Search for your prospective independent living community by name or address to find its most recent inspection date and score.

COVID-19 regulations for Fort Worth independent living communities

Due to the overall decline in COVID-19 infections, Fort Worth doesn’t have any COVID-19 regulations in place for stand-alone independent living communities. Nevertheless, Fort Worth residents can visit the COVID-19 informational page on the city’s official website to get the latest news regarding local outbreaks, vaccinations, COVID-19 testing, and more.

On the other hand, an independent living community that shares spaces with an assisted living community must comply with any standards set forth by the assisted living community. The Texas Health and Human Services (HHS) requires assisted living facilities to set their own infection prevention and control measures for common infections, including COVID-19. These measures may include a community’s hygiene practices, use of personal protective equipment (PPE), disinfection and sterilization techniques, safe injection methods, and physical distancing requirements.

Because communities are allowed to set their own standards, it’s best to check with your prospective community directly to see how they’re handling COVID-19.

What to expect from independent living in Fort Worth

Fort Worth has become a hotspot for seniors looking to lead an active retirement in the greater Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW) area. The city attracts seniors due to its small-town feel within a metropolitan area, robust health care options, and ideal weather. To accommodate the aging population, the city enacted an action plan called Age-Friendly Fort Worth in 2017. The city has since then implemented aging-friendly practices across the following domains to increase the quality of life for local seniors:

  • Outdoor spaces and buildings
  • Respect and social inclusion
  • Communication and information
  • Transportation
  • Civic participation and employment
  • Housing
  • Community support and health services

The DFW area has also increased its senior living options over the last few years. A Place for Mom doesn’t partner with many independent living communities in Fort Worth’s metro, but options more than double when the search is expanded to the greater DFW metroplex, including Dallas and Arlington. Fort Worth still offers several great options for those who want to remain in the city’s metro area. Below, you’ll find all the unique features of these local independent living communities in Fort Worth.

Multiple levels of care offer peace of mind

About a third of our partner independent living communities offer multi-tiered care levels to promote aging in place. Many seniors enter independent living to escape the stresses of home ownership and to reap the benefits of resort-style services and amenities. Luckily, seniors don’t have to worry about relocating if their care needs increase, as many of our partner communities also offer care services on-site.

Most of our partners offer an assisted living unit or memory care unit on-site to accommodate seniors’ unique needs. Assisted living offers seniors the same amenities of independent living in addition to assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs) and personalized care services. Memory care offers all of that with a more personalized and attentive approach to help handle each resident’s dementia symptoms. Some communities even offer visiting nurses to oversee advanced care needs. This multi-tiered care approach also enables senior couples to age together on the same campus, despite differing care needs.

Robust amenities offer luxury and convenience

Many seniors choose independent living for the added convenience provided by the robust services and resort-style amenities on-site. As a resident of our partner communities, daily tasks are taken care of with services like on-site dining, housekeeping, and transportation. Senior residents don’t have to cook, clean, or drive unless it’s something they wish to do. In that case, some communities offer apartment units with full kitchens and resident parking.

Independent living communities also offer amenities to help residents maintain a daily routine and optimal health. Seniors can stay physically, mentally, and socially active by utilizing the following on-site amenities in Fort Worth:

  • Fitness centers
  • Business centers
  • Libraries
  • Beauty salons and barbershops
  • Arts and crafts centers
  • Clubhouses/game rooms
  • Movie theaters
  • Swimming pools and Jacuzzis
  • Small stores with daily conveniences
  • Dining rooms and cafes with refreshments
  • Concierge services

Diverse activities foster a healthy and engaging environment

Independent living communities in Fort Worth aim to help residents immerse in new experiences and engage in their favorite tried-and-true activities. Communities host a variety of activities and classes based on the current resident population’s interests. Residents can find new ways to get active, relax, and socialize through these community-hosted activities.

Some of the most common activities seen in Fort Worth independent living communities include the following:

  • Fitness classes (chair yoga, tai chi, aerobics, stretching, etc.)
  • Art and cooking classes
  • Interest clubs (book clubs, current events club, gardening club, etc.)
  • Musical events (karaoke, music lessons, live performances, etc.)
