We're moving to Alamo Ranch towards the end of the summer or beginning of fall. My in laws are moving with us as well and would like to find an upscale apartment complex in a nice neighborhood. Eventually they will need some assistance so I'm wondering what their options are in San Antonio. They're looking for something around $1,000 to $1,200 per month.

Any an all advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

There are some very upscale apartment complexes, but the age range is going to be very important to your in-laws. You didn't say how much space they wanted. Some of the older neighborhoods have some very lovely older and well taken care of complexes, but they will not be near Alamo Ranch.

Two that come to mind right off that are very nice is "The Chelsea" on Treasure Way in the Alamo Height area, and "The Bushnell" which is in the Monte Vista area near Trinity University.

You may want to contact a relocation service that also deals in rentals of private property. There are some very nice condo communities that have individual units for rent. "The Georgian" in AH is another property like that.
Your relocation specialist will know of age ranges in apartment communities.

Best of luck to you all!

Del Webb is going to develop a retirement community in Alamo Ranch. I'm not sure what the status is with it.

The Meridian, across from the Quarry, is another very very nice complex that has a majority population of older people.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE The Bushnell. However, it takes a certain person to live there, one who appreciates living in a building built in the '20s and what that entails. For example, you have massive unobstructed views of downtown, hardwood floors, fireplaces, a separate dining room, but on the other, the bathroom isn't very big or updated, and the closet space is iffy. But if you can deal with those (minor) inconveniences, it is such a lovely place to live. Plus, it's across the street from the Landa Library, and the Landa Gardens that are being built.

The Del Webb Hill Country Retreat in Alamo Ranch area has been around since last year. The 28,000 SF club house should be completed sometime this summer. Nice place, but they are individual houses.

Alamocpl......just so I'm clear. You are looking into two types of properties for your in-laws? Short terms apartments for the near future and then a retirement type community for later?

Boerne is expanding their wonderful retirement community off of I 10. They have assisted and alsheimers and independent living right now.....but they are expanding on the independent living soon. That would be closer to you.

Thank you wCat and everyone else who responded with the information provided.

I guess when posting the thread and question I should have been more specific.

My in-laws did look at the Dell community at Alamo Ranch and they fell in love. There were set to buy a single family home there but reconsidered.

They are both in their mid 70's and decided taking care of a single family home wasn't for them anymore. They would like either a condo or an upscale apartment. Two bedrooms for between $1,000 - $1,200 per month. Eventually we all need some assistance and they are thinking towards the future. An upscale apartment complex may be the way to go and then eventually go to a facility when more care is needed in the future. That is unless there is an assisted living facility that doesn't seem like a hospital complex.

Thanks again for the tips and advice.

WCat - I tried to send you a private message but cannot. We are conducting focus groups in San Antonio next week about health care and are looking for those that have Medicare and a supplemental policy - we are having a hard time getting participants. They are to be paid $150 for 2.5 hours and it's on June 5 at 12PM. Since I could not contact you directly - please contact me if you can be of assistance - Gayle@AlphaBuzzGroup.com We are willing to pay a referral fee for qualified respondents - we need 8 people.

(Anyone else that is interested feel free to contact me directly as well).
