Our mother was 92 when she became a resident of Alexis Estates nearly 4 years ago. Upon first visiting the facility, she exclaimed, “This looks like the Grand Hotel!” Alexis Estates is very well appointed and boasts many amenities for its senior residents.The staff, from the cleaning and maintenance teams to the on-site management teams, were always very kind and helpful. Because the managers were on duty around the clock, we had peace of mind that help was available, if needed, even in the wee hours of the night. The Alexis Estates staff not only took the time to get to know their residents but also the residents’ families. The residents were also friendly and making new friendships came easy.When our mother’s medical condition and daily needs changed, we thought it was likely that we would have to relocate her to an assisted living facility. We were very pleased to learn that Alexis Estates was able to help with dietary changes as well as helping us coordinate the additional care she needed through partnerships with others that were already onsite. Because of these helps, she would be able to remain in the place she called “home” through the end of her life.Anyone seeking a great environment and living experience for their golden years or those of their beloved parents or grandparents owe it to themselves to check out Alexis Estates Gracious Retirement Living in Allen. For our mother, it was exactly what was needed!

Absolutely love this place! Due to the 6% increase of the previous place my father was living, he needed to make a move. I toured many places so he would be able to choose from several places within his budget. Alexis Estates won his heart, hands down. The 3 meals a day are chef prepared and the community of people are so loving towards him. Being a movie buff, he especially loves the theater. He can even bring his own DVD and enjoy the theater experience!I feel secure in knowing there are managers that live on- site allowing access immediate help when needed. The managers and staff gave been fantastic. He also has access to additional support through one of the care companies. The onsite therapy program is more than convenient for him. His therapists are patient and kind. He even has access to exercise equipment to stay in shape.The activities coordinator has them involved with games, workouts and contests. He especially loves the contests! I've looked and seen many other community independent living facilities and the building, decor, people, amenities and price are a perfect combination for my loved one at Alexis Estates!

If you look in the sky over Allen and see a rainbow, follow it! I will take you to Alexis Estates Retirement where there is a warm, welcoming community. What differentiates Alexis Estates from any other retirement facility my 93 year old mom as lived in, is there are two lovely couples that live on campus and are ever-present. Patti, Jim, Tracy and Brian are the Perfect Management Team that touch base with every resident during meals, eats with the group and keeps an eye on anyone not eating, not attending and will then follow up. Plus the management team is just so loving which is so refreshing for those that don’t have love ones visiting. These folks become your family! The biggest advantage is if there is an emergency off-hours or you have fallen, you pull the cord or beep your alarm and someone from the management team is there in 10 minutes! Alexis Estates has a 24 hour ice cream machine in the Bistro (!), fresh fruit, coffee and homemade bake goods available, 3 really delicious meals, 3 excellent care giving companies to choice from for aging-in-place, a Physical Therapist on-property, monthly family events and tons of activities during the day to do or attend externally. So well organized, run by just the warmest, loving managers leading to a very happy community! You have found Oz!! And I thank you for all the support you provided my mom. Just no comparison!

Such a great place for our seniors and baby boomers like me. The “all inclusive” style, rent, utilities and three chef prepared meals a day, fun and even weekly maid service is a great concept, it’s like being at a resort every day! The 24 hour onsite management is a huge safety plus too! I could not be happier with this place!

The facility will celebrate its first year anniversary this month. It is a beautiful place, great location, and the staff is nice. However, there seem to be management issues because during that time, they have lost 2 sets of assistant managers, 1 set of marketing managers, 2 chefs, 1 activity director, 1 utility man, and 2 maids. That is a high turnover. The food quality used to be very good at first, but now is just average: some good, some bad. Based on rent amount and the fact that it will be going up soon, I'll say it's an average value for your money.

We are so grateful for the wonderful people who manage Alexis. After losing my father they were so very loving to my mom. They allowed me to stay with her for a week to help her adjust to her new life. We appreciate the many activities and the many loving people that have been there for my mom.
