Caddis opens new Heartis senior living community in Waco, Texas

The assisted living and memory care residence offers innovative amenities, including a bistro, Internet café and a salon and spa

Caddis recently held a grand opening of the 81-unit, 70,000 square foot Heartis® Waco senior living community at 5317 Speegleville Road in Waco.

The community is owned by Caddis and is managed by Frontier Management, a senior living operations management company headquartered in Portland, Ore.

“We’ve been very impressed with the City of Waco,” says Matt Mattox, Caddis Executive Vice President and Partner. “It’s beautiful and thriving, it has a strong healthcare sector and it’s regularly implementing forward-thinking development projects. Plus it has a large, growing senior population that would benefit from Heartis Waco. This is the kind of city where we love to locate Heartis communities.”

“At Caddis, we believe it’s important for every major city to have access to a Heartis senior community where residents live active, full lives in a beautiful environment,” says Jud Jacobs, Caddis Senior Vice President of Development. “That’s why we’re also developing Heartis communities in a number of other markets, so local residents will feel warmly welcomed and get the care and support they need.”

“Everything about Heartis Waco, from the contemporary but uniquely Texan design and the first- class finishes to the variety of amenities and caring, professional staff, will appeal to residents and their families who want the best senior living environment,” notes Katie Csobaji, Caddis Senior Vice President of Senior Living. “This is the kind of community where our own moms and dads would feel at home.”

Heartis Waco offers a host of amenities and special features, including a bistro; Internet café; fitness center with access to an outdoor courtyard; salon and spa with a therapeutic tub; barber shop; two interior courtyards; a large dining room and a private dining room; an arts and crafts room; media room; library; daily specialized activities; delicious chef-prepared meals; licensed nursing services; indoor and outdoor walking paths; beautifully landscaped grounds; 24-hour emergency call system; housekeeping and laundry services; personal transportation; assistance with the activities of daily living; and high quality “Class A” finishes, all delivered in a warm, nurturing environment.
