What is Edgemere?
Edgemere is a retirement community for senior adults in Dallas, defined by three qualities:
- First, it is a residential retirement option that encourages health and wellness through an active, independent lifestyle.
- Second, it provides services, social activities and special amenities to enhance the lifestyle you're already enjoying.
- Third, as the only Life Care community in Dallas, it provides every independent living resident guaranteed access to on-site assisted living, memory support and skilled nursing care at The Plaza-all at little additional cost, should they ever need it, for as long as they need it.
What is so special about a Life Care community?
Your entrance fee provides you with Life Care, which allows you to enjoy independent residential living with the reassurance that additional care is available, should you ever need it, at predictable monthly fees. Living at Edgemere eliminates the time-consuming chores of home maintenance, fear of becoming a burden to family, concerns about aging among strangers, and worries about the availability and cost of quality long-term care.

What does it mean to be a not-for-profit community?
While for-profit communities use their income to pay dividends to investors, Edgemere, as a not-for-profit entity, reinvests revenue after expenses into the community, where it belongs. This difference is at the heart of Senior Quality Lifestyles Corporation’s (SQLC) mission and vision. Additionally, our not-for-profit status means that Edgemere must meet stringent financial guidelines, including strict government regulations. Residents have peace of mind, knowing that not-for-profit financial controls and reduced operating costs translate into lower, stabilized monthly fees and favorable tax credits and exemptions. Research also indicates that not-for-profit communities invest more resources into health services than for-profit communities.Close
