A new facility for older Austinites is scheduled to open soon in south Austin. It will serve those with memory impairments like Alzheimer’s or dementia. The “Silverado Senior Living” plans to house 90 people. Right now, the only facilities like it are in Round Rock. But, the needs of Austin’s elderly population continue to grow at a fast pace.
Silverado Senior Living is a private facility. Loren Shook is the company’s CEO. He says “there are thousands of people within the city of Austin that are suffering from this disease [Alzheimer’s] and we are very confident there is sufficient resources in the market for people to afford our services ”
