Plano Memory Care Community
Plano, TX 75093
Nestled on a tree-lined property a short ten minutes north of Dallas, Silverado Plano delivers top-notch memory care in an incredibly warm, inviting atmosphere. Visitors to our Craftsman-style community are greeted with delightful baking smells, the sounds of laughter and, most likely, a visit from one of our community dogs. The crown jewel of Silverado Plano is our staff, whose smiling faces and passion for helping are some of our most effective ways to enrich the lives of everyone who walks through our doors. Our dedication to staff and care allows Silverado to redefine what assisted living means for those whose lives we touch.
Silverado communities are designed to provide an environment where residents retain a sense of independence and dignity while they continue enjoying the things that have always been important to them. Whether a resident is in the early stages of memory impairment or needs a higher level of dementia care, our staff understands the changing symptoms of memory loss and the impact these can have. Family involvement is encouraged as a part of the Silverado senior living philosophy, so we don’t limit visiting hours and provide complimentary meals to visiting family members.
Activities, Amenities and Features
- Nexus, an innovative evidence-based program for early stage residents combining science and social engagement.
- Lively, well-lit atmosphere with constant activities to help residents remain engaged and social.
- Age-appropriate activity programs we call "engagements" build self-esteem, maintain dignity and offer opportunities for growth and creativity.

- Community pets (four dogs and five cats!) help with companionship and a sense of normalcy. Residents may be able to move into the community with their beloved pet, provided it fits in with others in the environment. Community animals give residents the opportunity to maintain dignity and self esteem by helping provide care to animals if they wish. This “sense of purpose” pet care brings is a hallmark goal of Silverado programs and services.
- Multiple choices of secure, enclosed spaces with features like a gazebo, serenity garden and walking paths to encourage mobility, maintain strength and balance and help to foster a sense of independence and freedom while maintaining safety.
