Growing and evolving to suit the area’s active seniors.

What started as a small retirement community on the edge of Texas Tech University has evolved into a thriving community of active seniors. Today, we’re the only senior living community offering LifeCare in West Texas. And while the modern-day Carillon now includes a new generation of ideas and opportunities in senior living, we still hold true to the straightforward wisdom of our West Texas roots. This includes integrity in everything we do, compassion for our neighbors, commitment to church and community, and of course, a love for the Red Raiders.

Prior to moving to Carillon six months ago, I had spent approximately a year and a half visiting a number of senior independent living facilities in Lubbock, and Carillon emerged as the option that best met my needs. I was impressed by the Life Care program, which includes not only independent living, but also assisted-living, memory care, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation should any of these be needed. Sometimes things that look inviting to an outsider do not always live up to the expectations of the residents. However, Carillon has not only met my expectations, it has exceeded them. The staff is excellent, the food is both plentiful and good, and every day brings a wide assortment of activities from which to choose. One of my favorite things about Carillon is the sense of community among the residents, who have been extremely friendly and welcoming to me. Without a doubt, moving to Carillon was the right decision for me, and I highly recommend it to others for their consideration.

Carillon has an amazing plan to help senior adults to have dignity as they need help in their lives. Seniors have a choice in a positive environment to enjoy friends, fun and food. The exercise work out room is fully staffed and the beautiful poor is delightful. The staff is friendly and positive as they give the needed support.

I've been with Carillon for almost two years and can honestly say it's one of the best places to work. Employees and leadership are passionate about what they do and it shows. But the best part is getting to know our amazing residents!

My mother has had to have post hospital recovery twice and both times were at Carillon. The staff is very friendly and one of the best things is the physical therapy program. They work with each patient to get them to a scheduled recovery. They do a great job and keep the patient's spirits up as they progress.

I have lived at Carillon in Independent Living for 10+ years. The resident population is great. Many professional, successful and interesting adults. The staff is fantastic and really does care about the residents. You can be as active or do as little as you want. A very positive environment.
