Experienced Management, Local Ownership


Tradition Senior Living is a Texas limited partnership, engaged solely in the development, construction and management of a growing number of Tradition senior living developments. The Tradition-Prestonwood location was opened to residents in June, 2010, and the Assisted Living and Memory Care Community opened to residents in 2015. The Tradition-Lovers Lane, opened in 2015, is situated next door to Central Market on East Lovers Lane and offers the full spectrum of Independent, Assisted Living and Memory Care. Management and construction are administered in-house with personnel who have corporate-level experience in the senior living industry.

The Tradition-Buffalo Speedway is opening soon at 9339 Buffalo Speedway. Situated inside the loop (Interstate 610), this preeminent continuum of care is convenient to the Texas Medical Center, the Museum District, entertainment venues such as the NRG Stadium, and shopping.

The Tradition most recently broke ground at The Tradition-Woodway, located at 6336 Woodway Drive, Houston, Texas 77057. Located in the heart of Houston’s premier Tanglewood and Memorial areas and next to Second Baptist Church, this second site is set to open in April 2020.  It will also comprise a continuum of care.
