“At Texas Star, our primary goal is to provide unparalleled care and service for residents whose needs will be handled in a professional, timely manner with seasoned experts. We know that no two individuals are alike, so we offer many options to allow each resident to create a living environment where they will feel at home,” states Joe Washko, Managing Partner, on behalf of himself and the local ownership group.

Some of the amenities and services include:

Top-quality care givers, staffing with 24 hour security and an emergency call response system in each residenceFloor plan choices ranging from studio apartments to two-bedroomsDiverse meal options in public or private dining rooms including coffee and snack barExercise and massage / physical therapy roomSocial activities and recreational programsCourtesy vans for shopping and entertainment excursionsLibrary / computer room and a theater roomLaundry servicesThree acres of beautifully landscaped grounds to enjoy, including three interior courtyards and a walking path

Texas Star will be managed by Civitas Senior Living under the leadership of Wayne and Misti Powell. Powell, President of Civitas, has 20 years of experience in senior healthcare. “Our small platform allows us to provide large company services with the attention to detail of a local owner,” said Wayne Powell.

About Civitas Senior Living, LLC
Based in Fort Worth, Texas, Civitas Senior Living specializes in development, acquisitions, operational management, and consulting for senior housing properties, including assisted living, retirement centers, and independent senior living properties.

A seniors housing developer active in Texas, after already opening five assisted living/memory care communities in the state last year, with three more currently under construction, is jumping back into the acquisition market to grow its portfolio. Civitas Senior Living purchased two former Brookdale Senior Living communities (with 58 independent living, 65 assisted living and 36 memory care units) in Harlingen, Texas (Brownsville MSA) for an undisclosed price. Civitas will take over operations and commence renovations to the common areas early this year. This is not the first acquisition for the fast-growing developer, however, which last September announced a new post-acute care division, called Civitas Post-Acute, and acquired two skilled nursing facilities in Jefferson (East Texas) as well as an assisted living/memory care community in town. We will have to see how Civitas’ developments fill up, as many of them are in potentially overdeveloped markets such as Austin, Dallas and Fort Worth, but the newly acquired communities are in areas where we haven’t heard of much building happening, so operational/occupancy risk may not be as high.
