Most senior living communities today more closely resemble hotels than they do the homes where families spend their lives together. Owned and operated in north Dallas, Mustang Creek Estates is changing that by embracing a warm, residential feel where residents live in uniquely designed homes. The company is proud to announce that it recently broke ground on Mustang Creek Estates of Burleson (1155 NW John Jones Drive). The $7 million dollar, 42,000-square-foot assisted living and memory care community will be thoughtfully set up like a neighborhood. Within each of the community’s six specially designed homes, up to 15 seniors will live in an environment in which they feel safe and secure in a friendly and loving place. The focal point of each home will be the open kitchen, where residents can see their food being prepared from scratch and smell the aromas of home-cooked, delicious meals. Residents receive personal assisted care and enjoy participating in enriching and fulfilling daily activities in their home and in other homes throughout the community. This flexible schedule allows residents to continue living as they did in their own homes and at an affordable price. The community will create 50 jobs, and the well-trained, compassionate staff will provide high-quality care for 90 residents. The senior living community is scheduled to open summer of 2016.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Burleson community and can’t wait to become involved in the area traditions that make this town so special,” said Renee Ramsey, cofounder and CEO of Mustang Creek Estates. “Our residents are truly an extension of our own families. We pride ourselves on providing an affordable, friendly environment that makes it very easy for residents to feel comfortable, engaged and immediately at home. They can make their own schedules, enjoy the smells and tastes of home-cooked meals, participate in activities and spend time visiting with their neighbors. Each home in our community is designed to be warm, with all the comforts of home at an affordable price.”
The intimate size allows staff to really get to know the residents personally. Mustang Creek Estates has found that its model creates bonds similar to the ones families share, and it leads to more individualized attention and care paid to each of its residents. As a result, deeper relationships develop in an extremely loving environment.
“Our community is like no other assisted living community in Burleson, and we continue to see our residents in Allen, Keller and Frisco positively impacted by the personalized style of care that we offer,” said Ramsey. “Our model of senior living puts the residents’ needs first and provides a caring, supportive, intimate environment in which to spend their time. Because we operate within smaller homes, our caregivers can anticipate and respond to the resident’s needs on a more personal level, just like a family member would.”
The community will sit on just over seven acres of land southwest of Burleson Church of Christ. The community was designed by civil engineer Joseph E. Helmberger, P.E. of Kimley-Horn, a design consulting firm. The community’s architect is Scott Roberts of Creative Architects in Garland.
