  • What is Querencia?

    Querencia is a retirement community for senior adults in the Barton Creek neighborhood of Austin, 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, it provides every independent living resident guaranteed access to on-site assisted-living, memory-support and skilled and long-term nursing at The Plaza, should they ever need it, for as long as they need.

  • What does Querencia mean?

    It's a Spanish word meaning a place for your heart's desire or a personal sanctuary.

  • As a Life Care resident, what if I run out of money?

    As part of our commitment to our Life Care residents, we've created a Financial Hardship Protection Plan. If you outlive your resources for reasons beyond your control and can't pay your monthly fee, you will never be asked to leave the community. You can stay here and keep your guaranteed priority access to our on-site health care. See your Life Care agreement for details.

  • How much does it cost?

    The cost of living at Querencia consists of a one-time entry fee that is 90% refundable to you or your estate, as well as a predetermined monthly service fee based on the size of your apartment home.

    When comparing the cost of living in your current home to living at Querencia, you'll be pleasantly surprised. Plus, you'll experience true peace of mind, knowing all your long-term health care needs will be addressed at The Plaza.
