Garden Estates of Corpus Christi Independent Living

The Water’s Warm at Garden Estates

Near the Gulf of Mexico and the white sand beaches of Padre Island, Garden Estates in Corpus Christi Texas, offers both Independent Living and Assisted Living lifestyle options to suit your lifestyle. Our community has been voted “Best of the Best” many times, and we invite you to come see why!

Live life your way

Residents at Garden Estates are able to leave the boring, tedious chores to our caring staff, allowing them to spend more time doing what makes them happy. The sky is truly the limit, as our Executive Chef, Programming Directors and caring staff are always turning resident suggestions into reality.

Seize the day—or just kick back!

Life at the Garden Estates includes our Fresh for You dining program, housekeeping service, award-winning programs, on-site rehabilitation services, daily wellness checks, and more. Caregiver services are also available 24 hours a day. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions, too. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask! Conveniently tucked among grocery stores, shopping, medical services and more, we will gladly chauffeur you to your physician or your favorite stores.

Care that’s always there

Our Corpus Christi Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that a certified nurse is on staff 24 hours a day and a security system is in place for residents with mild dementia. Our Be Our Guest short-term stay program includes a state-of-the-art therapy gym, where residents can fulfill their personalized therapy programs. In addition to physical therapy, we offer in-house speech therapy and occupational therapy. Whether you need short-term care following a hospital stay or long-term nursing supervision due to chronic health issues or disabilities, Garden Estates has an excellent reputation for quality care delivered consistently to our residents.

Worry-free lifestyle with just a simple lease

While some communities insist on new residents plopping 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.

“The Garden Estates of Corpus Christi was nice. The staff was very helpful; she called me numerous times to see how things were going even though we weren’t using their services. I thought their prices were very fair, they were way less than anywhere else in the country, and the place was clean.” – Caring68634950

“We visited the Garden Estates Of Corpus Christi Assisted Living Community while out looking at facilities to consider for our aunt. We could tell as soon as we arrived that this is a well-tended place. The circular drive and carport looked more like a high end hotel than a place where seniors might live. The staff was very caring and professional, explaining the entire process from start to finish. The front area had fragrant fresh flowers and plenty of nice greenery, as did the back yard area. Residents are free to enjoy the area with supervision nearby. There were nice walkways and seating areas as well, where families and friends may gather. The food was cooked to perfection. We got to see the main kitchen, where fresh bread was baking, and homemade soups were being made. They also make their own salad dressings. Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits are available at all times. The food at this facility rivals that of a 5 star hotel. The communal rooms were all lovely and nicely decorated, with plenty of nice natural light — which made for a cheery atmosphere. The residents all looked they were really content. The list of activities was comprehensive, from library to local outings, they do it all. They have regular socials where people come from the community, as well. This facility had exceptional atmosphere, level of care and food — everything a senior needs to live a vibrant and content life — under the best circumstances possible.” – Commercesd

“Great place for your parents! Really caring and genuine staff. The lady who helped us decide to move in here was wonderful! She made this decision so easy and helped us convince Mom that her health and safety had to come first. Mom was mad at me but loved the people at Garden Estates, so she was easily convinced to make this her new home. A year later and she is still loving it! I can’t wait till I get to retire!!!” –
