What our residents say

My parents moved in Wyndham Court of Plano and it has been a blessing for our entire family. I know longer have to worry about my parent being alone and not able to get to them in time, if something happens. My parents enjoy the great food, the many activities and the super friendly staff. Thank you Wyndham Court of Plano.

Into my third week living at Reunion Court of Kingwood! At 89 I am extremely satisfied & happy with these facilities. Certainly not lonely anymore. Food, fellowship, activities & format is so gratifying & well managed. I highly recommend Reunion Court for whatever your Senior age requirements might be!

My 90-year-old mother has been at Wyndham Court of Plano for nearly four years and we love the staff!  My husband and I are local so I usually see her 3-4 days a week and she is so happy to be there! This is a small community so my mom is known and loved by all!  She is so involved in the daily activities and I am so happy to have the support from this friendly staff!

What our residents say

My mother has lived in the independent living community for 2 years. They are very attentive to their residents’ needs. Recently, mom had a hospitalization and need to transition back to a respite care setting in assistant living. They went above and beyond to make that happen with my mother’s comfort and care to be the primary focus!

Cheryl Oller
What our residents say

I love living here (Reunion Court of Kingwood).  I came three months ago and have made more friends than I dreamed possible.  I have not met anybody that is not cheerful and kind. There are many fun activities to do, a beautiful movie/chapel theater, library, tea room, exercise room, and lunchroom that serves fine dining with white tablecloths and waitresses.

Peggy Gifford
What our residents say

My mother in law resided in memory care at Reunion Court of Kingwood for a year and a half. We couldn’t have asked for better people to care for our loved ones.  Trina loved her and treated her like she was her own mother. Much love and thanks to all of you for everything you did for her and for us.

My wife was admitted to the Memory Care unit at Wyndham Court of Plano this month. I found Mr. Preston Smith to be extremely knowledgeable and courteous. I couldn’t have done this without Preston.
