The Story Behind The Tradition

“Beauty” and “resort-style living” are used far too easily in describing senior living communities today. But at Tradition Senior Living Communities, those words hit the mark.

Here’s why.


After years of working in senior living across Texas, founder Jonathan Perlman decided that he wanted to develop a senior living community with  new vision. First, he determined that superlative service and care would be foundational. He chose the name “Tradition” to connote family heritage and classic design. When he asked a talented residential interior designer to create the interiors for the Community, she protested that she had never designed anything on such a scale. He replied, “Do as you always do—make it feel beautiful and welcoming like a home—just a larger one!”

He then invited Dallas area seniors to participate in focus groups, and he acted upon their requests for: fine dining, a fitness center, a constant flow of fun social activities, and programs that foster mental and physical health.

Today, The Tradition provides a continuum of care—Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care—in five different locations: Two in Dallas, two in Houston, and a new Community recently opened in Fort Worth.

Tradition Communities are warmed by antiques and filled with natural light in gorgeous common areas. Residents dine by firelight in a stately Dining Room. Gentlemen read their papers in plush sofas and chairs surrounded by Old World prints and paintings. Ladies play cards in an exquisitely feminine room. When residents retire, it’s to extraordinary private living areas detailed with crown molding.


It’s just like home, only better.
