Learn More About Independent Living in Waco, TX

Waco is a charming, Central Texas college town along the Brazos River about halfway between Dallas and Austin. As the birthplace of Dr. Pepper and the home of the Texas Rangers Hall of Fame, the little city of Waco has big character.

Independent living communities — also known simply as retirement communities — in Waco are geared towards seniors who are able to live on their own, without daily assistance, and prefer to live among people their age. This usually means residents are self-sufficient and do not require hands-on care. Think of Waco retirement communities as age-restricted (typically 55+) complexes, which provide organized activities, meal services, and transportation.
