Memory care is more than a secure and familiar place for people living with Alzheimer’s or dementia to call home. The Retreat at The Philomena welcomes your loved one to enjoy an environment focused on creating meaningful moments and purposeful expression every day.
Take an inside look at our memory care community in Kyle, TX, just south of Austin.
What is The Retreat?
Memory care, Austin style!
The roots of our senior living community are tied to the vibrant city of Austin. Our community is inspired by a love for live music, good food, and supporting all things local. The memory care program at The Retreat reflects that attitude. It offers people living with dementia the opportunity to continue enjoying those aspects of their lives–at their pace.
Kyle is a half-hour drive from the big city of Austin. The Philomena offers seniors and their families the opportunity to experience modern assisted living and memory care in the comforts of their local community.
How do seniors in memory care spend their time?
The Philomena removes the stigma of a place for seniors to exist. Our residents enjoy their lives and find purpose every day. Our memory care community offers Austin-area seniors the opportunity to stay active and engaged while experiencing independence in their own private or semi-private residence.

What’s the difference between memory care and assisted living?
Memory care is a specialized form of assisted living for people with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia.
In both services, seniors benefit from:
- Personal care services
- Nurse oversight
- Activities of daily living assistance
- Medication management
- Housekeeping, maintenance, and transportation
Memory care utilizes specially trained team members who understand the ebb and flow of living with memory loss.
The team at The Retreat gets to know your loved one on a personal level to provide the best care experience. Our secure neighborhood allows residents to live with the freedom to explore a familiar area and gather with friends. Families don’t have to worry about their loved one wandering.
Individualized care plans from routine assessments allow families to follow their loved one’s progression in memory care. These assessments provide residents with access to the care they require and ensure engaging activities that fulfill their needs.
Why do people need memory care?
