Experience Exclusive Senior Living in Kerrville, Texas
Located in Kerrville, Texas, on a seven-acre campus just across from a park, Brookdale Guadalupe River Plaza, recently underwent a major remodel of its Independent Living and Assisted Living communities. This, combined with our elegant plantation-style architecture, covered patios, multiple courtyards, walking areas and spectacular views of the Guadalupe River, make our community one of the most desirable senior living communities in Texas Hill Country.
Our Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) offers the following levels of care:
- Independent Living apartments offer the privacy of well-appointed residences and the services and amenities of a vacation property, including restaurant-style dining, transportation services, housekeeping, and laundry services.
- Assisted Living accommodations for those who may need some extra help with daily living activities. We balance assistance with independence, providing just the right amount care needed.
- Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation — Licensed and Medicare-approved, our community offers skilled nursing care supported by speech, physical and occupational therapies and other rehabilitation services. We also offer respite care and hospice.
All buildings are connected, making it easy for residents to take full advantage of our continuum of care. This unique environment allows residents to easily transition from one care level to the next without having to leave familiar surroundings or friends. Couples can live on the same campus together even if one lives independently and the other requires a different level of care.
The Freedom to Live Life as You Choose
While just a small city of 22,000, Kerrville has earned the notable distinction of being among the country’s top ten retirement destinations for a town of our size. Come for a visit and you’ll quickly see why.
We’re located in the heart of beautiful Texas Hill Country, where creeks and rivers meander through the rugged terrain and rolling hills of the Guadalupe River Valley. In the spring, the hills are ablaze with the spectacular Texas Bluebonnets and the renowned Wild Seed Farm in Fredericksburg, a favorite destination for residents, is just 22 miles from our campus.
Several small historical German towns are a short drive from our community and only an hour northwest is San Antonio which is home of the River Walk, Fiesta Texas and Sea World. The state capitol of Austin is about 90 minutes, door to door. Our weather is temperate, neither too hot nor cold, and the pace in this part of Texas is just right.
Kerrville offers convenient amenities with restaurants, banks, shopping malls, theaters, parks and outstanding medical facilities, including Peterson Regional Medical Center and the VA Medical Center, near campus. We have designated days for errands and appointments but are very flexible and are almost always able to take residents wherever they need to go whenever they need transportation.

Whether it’s a short-term respite visit while recovering from surgery or a long-term rehabilitation after a joint replacement, we have the services and care you need, when you need them. Our Skilled Nursing team provides round the clock nursing care and our on-site rehabilitation professionals offer physical, occupational and speech therapy to help patients enhance or regain their independence.
