Houston’s first retirement community is still the first choice for Houstonians.

Founded by a group of civic-minded Houstonians in 1949, Holly Hall is Houston’s first retirement community and has been continuously upgraded since then.

A strong history of community support and philanthropy has allowed Holly Hall to keep its vibrant legacy of caring and community involvement.

Today, as a nonprofit Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), Holly Hall is governed by our 51-member board of directors, and our administrative staff oversees daily operations. Many staff members have served Holly Hall residents for decades, which speaks to our sound management and retention of happy, compassionate and respectful employees who truly love the work they do and take pride in the quality of service they provide.

In March 2012, Holly Hall began to accept Medicare, which allows residents to remain at Holly Hall while they receive prescribed medical care. Holly Hall also now accepts some commercial insurance plans, Medicare Advantage Plans and long-term-care plans, and is proud to work with the University of Texas Medical School and Baylor College of Medicine fellowship programs.

Today, Holly Hall is experiencing a renaissance. We are adding new services and programs, remodeling our interiors and exploring new living options. All these efforts ensure that Holly Hall will appeal to the next generation of retirees for decades to come.
