Austin, Round Rock, Georgetown, the whole Central Texas region is aging, you certainly know. What is pleasantly surprising is that cities and businesses are taking notice.

Not long after this article (“Austin aging, latest census data show”), detailing the changing or “graying” demographics of Austin, did two major senior living developments get revealed:

The first one, in Georgetown, will be located near large Sun City Senior Living development. Read more about it here: 2 Georgetown projects add to region’s options for senior living

Today, a project in Round Rock was announced, which will bring more memory care living options to Central Texas. Read more here: Round Rock project will add to area’s supply of memory-care facilities

While both these projects will take some time to be available to seniors, we’re excited about growth in the number of resources for older adults in Central Texas. What are your thoughts?
