CATERED LIVING HAS A GIFT FOR YOU.
The day you sign up for Catered Living exclusively at Creekside in Huntsville, TX, is the day you give yourself the gift of freedom. As a rental independent living service plan within our assisted living community, our Catered Living provides 3 square meals each day and the security of knowing a little extra assistance is right there whenever you need it in the future. What you get is comfort, convenience, friends all around — and time. Time enough to learn a language — like American Sign. Time for learning to dance, to play music, to apply paint to canvas. Time to apply yourself to whatever suits your fancy as you turn your retirement lifestyle into a distinctive, pleasing adventure.

THIS IS WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR.
The single most important thing you can do to improve your odds of a long life? Make friends. A recent study of dozens of studies reaffirmed that a strong social network — that is, friends (and ideally, family) to share your life with — can improve your odds by more than 50%. Imagine! In terms of living longer, nothing beats having people who care for you, who you care about, too.
“FRIEND” IS AN ACTION VERB.
To make a friend, do stuff together. That’s why our calendar is loaded with events and activities that are fun to do together. And why we’re all ears when it comes to residents’ suggestions for new ideas. If an activity anywhere in Walker County looks interesting, come try it out and try us on in Huntsville.

CATERED LIVING FAQS
Caregivers — family members who call and stop by, neighbors who check on you — can become especially dear, with their commitment to you a bond of trust and their presence a meaningful and rewarding connection. But consider how Creekside provides an entire community of friends, engaging activities and social interactions. That’s an end to isolation right there. And then about how all your meals and snacks are made to order in our bistro and restaurant kitchens, and our 24/7 staff are always at your disposal, should your family ever be concerned about your safety. And so, rather than relying on those who come by when you need something, at Creekside you can be surrounded by caring friends and people eager to be at your side. Isn’t that better?
Always! Guests are more than welcome to enjoy recreational facilities, dining, amenities and activities with you. They can stay in your home, or in a nearby hotel (we’ll give you a list, if you ask).
Of course! Pets are family, too! This is a pet-friendly campus, and we welcome cats, dogs, fish and birds upon approval. When you visit, ask about the pet policy and approval process, and put your mind at ease.
Certainly! We always encourage residents to be participants in our Resident Council. You can actively participate in important decisions that affect Creekside activities, outings, dining, programming and more.
Some 5-10 years after retirement, we begin to think about a change of lifestyle. In the early years after retiring, many people focus on catching up on things they couldn’t do during their working years, like home maintenance, a new hobby or extended travel. But after a while, thoughts often begin to turn in a different direction. Do any of these ring a bell?
- You live alone and feel isolated from friends and family.
- You have face-to-face contact with others less than once a week.
- You notice that you feel lonely.
- You’re weary of tackling home maintenance chores and cooking.
- You’re bored most of the time.
- You’re frightened at night and feel vulnerable in your own home.
- You live surrounded by younger people who don’t share your interests.
- You’re having more difficulty with tasks of daily living than you used to.
