Independence. With the level of support you need.
The Monarch at Richardson is committed to helping every person who lives here find the perfect balance of independence and support in an environment that feels like home. This is an assisted living and memory care community, but we’re focused on what each resident can and wants to do, not what they can’t. We’re guided by our distinct philosophy — Salus™ by Solvere — that focuses on the Four Components of Wellness. Everything we do is designed to promote your total well-being, honor your personal traditions and history, support you in meeting your goals and empower you to live a fulfilling life with dignity and respect.
We provide compassionate care and support to people at every stage of Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory impairment. Our Valeo™ philosophy for memory care is designed to create a meaningful, individualized lifestyle that honors your legacy and emphasizes strengths and connection.
Family is also important at The Monarch — both the sense of family that develops between residents and team members, as well as the way we welcome and encourage family members and friends to visit and participate in the life of our community. Our emphasis on family and individualized support builds the high level of trust and connection that makes life here exceptional.

When to Plan for a Retirement Community
Retirement communities offer a safe place for aging adults while providing a variety of amenities and services that can help residents thrive. Residents feel their best when loved ones get the chance to know their neighbors, meet their caregivers, and become active in social events and programs. In order for seniors to enjoy the benefits of these communities, it’s important to begin planning before an emergency or crisis occurs.
Planning in advance gives you time to find the retirement community and avoid being on a lengthy waiting list. Some of the signs that you should begin looking for a retirement community in Richardson include:
- A fall has occurred
- Help with managing medications
- Recent diagnosis Alzheimer’s disease or some other form of dementia
- Difficulty attending to personal hygiene or other daily living tasks.
- Poor eating habits
Don’t wait until a serious fall or hospital visit occurs to begin planning for moving to a retirement community. Early planning can ensure you’re ready to make that transition easier when the time comes.
The team at The Monarch takes the time to get to know you, and your journey is honored along the way. We want to learn about your past, your present and your goals for today and tomorrow. Using what we learn, an individualized program of care and services is developed to provide the right amount of support so you can maintain control of your own life.
