Stunningly Beautiful Independent Living You Can Afford: Life at Cornerstone

Apr-8-2016

Share on:   

At Cornerstone, we make sure that independent living and beauty go hand in hand. In March, 2016, Cornerstone Retirement Community completed a $3 million renovation that provides a serene ambience and all the eye-pleasing qualities you'd expect from a Methodist Retirement Community, an established leader in senior living.

The renovations include, a casual cafe bistro, sophisticated touches in the dining room, cozy luxury for the private dining room and a full renovation of the multipurpose room. However, the upgrades don't end there. To match the newly renovated dining room, our dining service hours have been extended to better accommodate residents' busy schedules. Updated furnishings and decor in warm browns and robin egg blue give an overall soft and luxurious feel to all of the interior spaces. Marketing Director of Cornerstone Retirement Community, Natasha Crabbe, shared, "The improvements are part of our vision to provide the latest features in both living space and services to our residents".

These upgrades allow Cornerstone to provide improved amenities, and the modern decor also extends to the beautifully remodeled and spacious independent living apartments, all featuring high-end finishes and brand new appliances. Of course, the same carefree lifestyle that Cornerstone has always provided is one thing that will never change.

Live Independently Knowing Healthcare is Here If You Need It

At Cornerstone's Healthy Living Community, residents live life on their terms. In fact, life at Cornerstone is senior living the way you envisioned it would be. Here's what Mr. Edward Taylor had to say about living at Cornerstone:

"I feel at home here at Cornerstone. Everyone is very helpful and does anything for you. I lived a mile away from here before I moved and now I can't see myself living anywhere else. The people who live here are very nice. The is the place to live!"

Cornerstone understands that each individual has different needs to maintain health, and residents can live worry-free knowing they have access to around-the-clock healthcare management. For some, it can be a daily need. For others, healthcare at Cornerstone serves as a security plan if a health event arises. Part of the recent renovations included the addition of a new and improved rehab center. Cornerstone provides this service so residents don't have to travel off site if they require rehab therapy after surgery, medical procedures or a health event.

Health care at Cornerstone includes:

"Cornerstone is a great place to be! I had a stroke in August and I have come a long way since then. I was in Health Care for a long time and couldn't take 2 steps at first. Now I am walking without the help of a walker. I wouldn't be where I am today without their Physical Therapy department. Cheers to PT! I am back home with my wife and life is good!" - Mr. Earl Page, Cornerstone Resident

The various health options available at Cornerstone also include 24-hour emergency response for all residents. Cornerstone provides assisted living for residents who need a bit more help on a daily basis. Independent living residents enjoy amenities that include weekly housekeeping, restaurant-style dining in the new casual bistro, wellness programs and laundry services, to name a few. The abundance of services plus luxe amenities, stunning decor, an activity center, library, fitness room, hair salon and a beautifully manicured campus, make Cornerstone a truly exceptional choice for senior living.

Activities are a Stone's Throw Away

At Cornerstone Healthy Living Community, residents don't have to worry about arranging transportation to Texarkana's many city attractions. On top of providing transportation, Cornerstone plans activities within the community and outings in Texarkana and surrounding areas. Texarkana provides many opportunities to enjoy a wide range of attractions and events.

  • Museums. The Ace of Clubs House is a historic home that displays the evolution of the house in each room and the lifestyles of the families who have inhabited the house over time. Are you more interested in the city's history? The Museum of Regional History provides a look into the history of Texarkana and its surrounding area. When grandchildren are in tow, the Discovery Place Museum is where you need to go. From hands-on activities to murals, everyone in your group will have a wonderful time!
  • The arts. The Perot Theatre, located in downtown Texarkana, brings music, ballet, Broadway and more to the city. The Regional Arts Center hosts an interesting mix of touring art exhibitions, plus year-round programming that includes lectures, workshops, classes and tours.
  • Other activities. Many of us wish we could be in two places at once. In Texarkana, you can! At Photographer's Island, visitors can stand on the Texas/Arkansas state line, which is located in front of the State Line Post Office, the only post office in the United States located in two states!
