What is the Stayton?
The Stayton is a retirement community in the West 7th Cultural District of Fort Worth, defined by three qualities:
- First, it is a residential retirement option that encourages health and wellness through an active, independent lifestyle.
- Second, it provides services, social activities and special amenities to enhance the lifestyle you're already enjoying.
- Third, it provides every independent living resident guaranteed access to on-site assisted-living, memory-support and skilled-nursing care, at little additional cost, should they ever need it, for as long as they need it.
What is so special about a Life Care community?
Your entrance fee provides you with Life Care, which allows you to fully enjoy independent residential living with the reassurance that additional care is available, should you ever need it, at predictable fees. Living at The Stayton eliminates the time-consuming chores of home maintenance, fear of becoming a burden to relatives, and worries about the availability and cost of quality long-term care. Life Care at The Stayton combines unparalleled financial security and peace of mind with a truly independent lifestyle and a wide range of resort-style services and amenities.Close
How do I know this is for me at this time in my life?
By making a smart decision now, you can relax, knowing your future is secure. Often people wait until it's too late and are unable to take full advantage of the benefits of living in a Life Care community. Residents who move to The Stayton directly into Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing are not eligible for Life Care benefits.Close
Is the community safe and secure?
Yes. As a resident of The Stayton, you'll enjoy 24-hour security, supported by a staff dedicated to your safety. Each residence will be equipped with an emergency call system for your added protection and comfort.Close

What does it mean to be a not-for-profit community?
While for-profit communities use their income to pay dividends to investors, The Stayton, as a not-for-profit entity, reinvests revenue after expenses into the community, where it belongs. This difference is at the heart of Senior Quality Lifestyles Corporation’s (SQLC) mission and vision. Additionally, our not-for-profit status means that The Stayton must meet stringent financial guidelines, including strict government regulations. Therefore, residents have peace of mind, knowing that not-for-profit financial controls and reduced operating costs translate into lower, stabilized monthly fees and favorable tax credits and exemptions. Research also indicates that not-for-profit communities invest more resources into health services than for-profit communities.Close
What if I decide not to move in?
If you have to cancel your reservation due to reasons beyond your control, we will refund your full deposit. If you simply change your mind, you will receive your deposit back, plus any interest it has earned, less a small processing fee.Close
How much does it cost?
The cost of living at The Stayton consists of a one-time entry fee that is 90% refundable to you or your estate. The cost also includes a predetermined monthly service fee based on the size of your apartment home.
When comparing the cost of living in your current home to living at The Stayton, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Plus, you’ll experience true peace of mind, knowing all your long-term health care needs will be addressed.
