These days, older adults are driving later in life. Ultimately, though, most seniors outlive their driving abilities. Unfortunately, the reality is that declines in short-term memory, vision, motor skills, strength, and reaction time contribute to unsafe driving. Transportation services for older adults are a critical need. For many seniors who no longer drive, finding transportation can prevent them from fully living their lives. At Westminster Place in Longview, TX, we proudly offer a range of transportation services, ensuring our residents can get where they need to go.
Westminster Place Senior Living is part of Buckner Retirement Services, which has provided dignified living and expert care for seniors in Texas since 1954. We tailor your senior living experience to your needs and desires. Call 903.329.6520 to learn more about transportation and other resident lifestyle services.

The Benefits of Senior Community Living
Today more and more seniors are choosing senior living communities. Some of the main reasons are:
- Simplicity and freedom–Not having to deal with the expenses and hassles of home maintenance is a relief. Residents have more time to do what they enjoy and discover and pursue new interests.
- Social connections–The effects of social isolation can have devastating impacts on your mental and physical wellbeing. Independent senior living provides a built-in support network, and social opportunities are a regular part of daily life.
- Staying active–Staying mentally and physically active is vital to wellbeing. Often, seniors living alone do not realize how inactive they have become. Independent senior living provides activities to keep you mentally and physically engaged.
- Access to care–Unfortunately, no one can predict when their health might change, especially later in life. Residents in independent senior living have immediate access to quality care right within their community when an unexpected health problem arises.
