Dancing River Memory Care


Welcome to Dancing River, where resort-style accommodations and a positive, social lifestyle come together to form a one-of-a-kind community. Offering Memory Care and Assisted Living near Fort Worth in a lush, natural corner of Grapevine, Texas, Dancing River is designed to promote creativity and independence within a safe and stimulating environment. We would love for you to visit our senior living community with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!


With Dancing River’s convenient assisted living location in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, a host of dedicated services, and a wide array of amenities, each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Within our vibrant senior living community, residents entertain guests, play regular card and board games, and relax in our spa. Outside, they go for walks through our impeccable courtyard, with its gardens, fish ponds, and waterfalls. Spacious lounges, game rooms, a beauty salon & barbershop, our popular café, and the landscaped outdoor areas provide an environment of healthy, social stimulation for every resident to enjoy in their own way.


Located near the Grapevine Historic District, Southlake Town Square shopping and dining, DFW Airport, and much more, residents of Dancing River have all they could all they could ever ask for in the neighborhood. They enjoy shopping, dining, and attending services, and we provide the transportation services. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!


Our Assisted Living and Memory Care residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that trained clinical staff are on duty 24/7, and a 24-hour emergency call response system is in place. Prior to moving in to our community, we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Our mission is to provide a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.


While some senior living communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Dancing River has 19 apartments in Memory Care and 65 apartments in Assisted Living in Grapevine. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.

Live Well, Dine Well

Allow our professionally trained service staff to present you with delicious dishes made from locally sourced ingredients for breakfast, lunch and dinner. At Senior Lifestyle, dining is an integral part of the resident experience, and we do everything we can to delight you with a personalized dining experience.

Dining Directors and Executive Chefs meet with residents to discuss and incorporate enhancements to the menu, special requests, favorite recipes or foods, and unless otherwise specified by state regulations we offer therapeutic diets such as reduced concentrated sweets, mechanical soft and purée. Residents can select healthy, locally sourced options based on the nutritional information, or they can simply opt to choose their favorites. And we always encourage residents and relatives to make special arrangements when expecting a family visit!

The staff are doing a wonderful job caring for my mother in law. They communicate all of her care needs with the family regularly. The community is very clean and organized. My mother in law has enjoyed the variety of food offered. They have a beautiful courtyard with a fountain that flows into a river.

I visited this facility

Dancing River was a very nice and clean establishment with different levels of care in the community. I liked the memory care, and there was a good number of caregivers to patients.

Testimonial Image

Mom was in assisted living and now memory care. Staff who work with residents are awesome and so caring. Management is not visible and the new director, who has been there about 6 months (there is a revolving door of executive directors), is never seen in memory care. If the people who care for mom daily weren’t so awesome I would have moved her out.

Testimonial Image

“While touring assisted living communities in the Grapevine area, I took a checklist and would take notes after viewing each community. Did the place smell, Did the residents look happy, how was the staff and their interaction with the residents, what is the activity calendar like, outdoor space(mom likes to sit outside a lot). Dancing River was the only community to get an A+ and it had everything we were looking for and more. Dancing River really is a magical place. I moved my mom in a few months ago and we couldn’t be happier. Greg is the manager and he is so kind and attentive. It was a struggle moving mom out of her home and we definitely waited too late to make the decision. We let mom tell us when she was ready when really we should have helped her and made the decision for her. She is so much happier and when we walk down the halls together all of the staff welcome her and smile at her and address her by name. That may seem small but that really means a lot. There is another manager there named Barbi and she is spectacular. She helped us with the move and is an absolute angel. She really has a heart for what she does and it shows. I would definitely recommend Dancing River if you are looking for an assisted living community.”
