Our History

Monticello West History

For over 30 years, Monticello West has been the go-to senior living community in the Park Cities. It has been a pioneer community since it was first established in 1983. The idea of assisted living was in its nascent stages during this period, but the founders of our community, Steve Rush and John Neill, seized on the idea in the late 70s. Monticello West has the distinct honor of being recognized as one of the earliest assisted living communities in Dallas. From independent living options that promote a carefree lifestyle to compassionate assisted living and memory care options, you can rest easy knowing we are ready to meet your needs no matter where life’s journey takes you. Plus, our comfortable and cozy community offers plenty of amenities, social opportunities and enriching activities to ensure you’re always enjoying life to the fullest extent.

Monticello West offers lifestyle options to meet your needs, now and in the future, as well as a variety of high-quality programs and services that prove our leadership in the industry, such as:

    • Health & Wellness Navigation: Our trained Wellness Navigation team partners with residents to anticipate needs and address them—from day-to-day nutrition, fitness and life-enriching activities to preparation and follow-up for hospital care.
    • Jefferson Bridge: The Jefferson Bridge program was developed by Josie Winland, who currently serves as Monticello West’s Executive Director. Initially designed for couples where one of the pair needed redirection, cognitive stimulation, companionship, The Bridge provides day stays within a safe community on our memory care floor. The couple enjoys the opportunity to dine together, spend some time together and spend nights together, while allowing for the spouse to have some downtime, participate in assisted living activities and enjoy time with friends. The benefit to the Mayfair participant is highly specialized innovative care. Today, the Jefferson Bridge provides a smooth transition for other assisted living residents who find it harder and harder to thrive in an unrestricted environment. The program allows families the option of assisted living care for their loved one initially, with a path to more structured care as they age in place.

“Mom loves her apartment. It’s nicely painted and carpeted, and the size is perfect for her. She has a living room area with a full-size couch and chairs, so she can entertain guests. I visit a couple of times a week, and my husband swings by on other days. My son stops by every few weeks, too. Mom has her own space that looks and feels like home. Every time I’m there, she just seems contented. ”

-Cindy, Daughter of Resident

“The minute I entered the community I liked what I saw, but it didn’t stop there. I’ve visited other communities where the furniture was lovely in the main areas and when you proceeded down the hallways, it was a different scenario. But as we continued to look around at Monticello West, I thought: This is pleasant! ”

-Mary, Resident

“The staff is caring and genuine. From the beginning, we didn’t feel like we were being processed, date-stamped and handed off to the next person. The community must have an exceptional hiring process, because I have yet to find someone there who isn’t qualified, doesn’t respect me or that I don’t enjoy. The caregivers are polite, and perhaps most important, I trust them.”

-Susan, Daughter of Resident
