There are certain realities hitting our radar as children of aging parents. They are entering or already have entered a new season of life. Retirement is either around the corner or has already happened. The desire and sometimes need for our parents to relocate to be near us or to downsize are now a reality. You have likely thought some of these very things::
“I wish my parents were minutes instead of hours away.”
“I hate that my Mom is all alone since my Dad passed away.”
“I wish my parents would downsize and enjoy their retirement with less responsibility.”
“If my parents were closer, they could enjoy more time with their grandchildren.”
“My home isn’t large enough for my parents to move in, but I know we need to find a way to make it work.”
You are not alone in these thoughts. In fact, your parents have probably shared some of these very same sentiments or concerns. Entering into this new season of life doesn’t have to be filled with stress. Don’t get me wrong, we all know that moving and major life changes will have elements of stress. Overture Sugar Land Active Adult Apartment Homes recognizes all of these challenges and obstacles and have built the solutions directly into their active living concept.
Relocation can be a daunting experience at any age. If your parents are contemplating moving closer to you or downsizing, they could be working with decades of time in their current home. That could mean a lifetime of memories and possessions to process through. Overture recognizes the work it takes to right size your life. Overture can be your concierge for all of you moving needs. They have a vetted vendor list of potential movers, realtors, cleaners, and just about anything else you could possibly need for hire to facilitate a move. They also have the option of purchasing onsite storage if they want to bring a little more than they hoped to have in their new home.
One of the best features of choosing Overture Sugar Land is a built in community. I had the opportunity to visit during a Saturday morning breakfast taco gathering. I watched residents pour into the common area and make coffee in the coffee bar all while greeting one another. The quickly gathered and started pushing tables together. I overheard their laughter and saw the genuine connections they had made with one another. I sat down with a resident named Katy. She talked about relocating from another state. She shared with me that the prior week she had been sick. She said throughout the week several fellow residents knocked on her door to check on her and to see if she needed anything. She also went on to share that she can count on the fact that someone will always be looking out for her and noticing if she has a need. Your parents might be faced with building new friendships if they are relocating to a new area. You can feel at ease knowing the culture of the residents is one of community and support.
Overture’s apartment homes are described as luxury for a reason. Well, several reasons. Each apartment comes with stainless steel appliances, a full size washer and dryer, walk in closets, designer lighting, large windows, and plush carpeting in the bedrooms. There are several floor plans available ranging from 676 sqft studios to 1134 sqft two bedroom options. There is even room to customize a space to meet the needs of the resident.

Overture makes the moving process simple with their support, but the real gold of this location is found in all the onsite amenities. Let’s start with location. Overture Sugar Land is located across the street from Constellation Field in a Master Planned Community. The area is expertly landscaped, and the views of Constellation Field are spectacular. During baseball season every game ends with an AMAZING firework display. Residents can sit on their balconies and enjoy the show. Imagine how excited your children would be to watch fireworks while visiting Grandma and Grandpa. My children would lose their minds with excitement. There is no need to have a membership to a fitness club because everything you need is on site. There is a fitness center stocked with equipment and a workout studio. Fitness instructors come on site and lead classes such as Zumba and Yoga for residents. Tease, the onsite salon offers hair and nails services. Residents can relax on movie nights in the theater with luxury chairs and complimentary concessions. What is amazing about this amenity is that residents can book the theater, at no cost, to host a movie for their guests. Imagine how cool it would be for your children to go to the movies while visiting Grandma and Grandpa. When they wrap up watching a movie, they can head down to the resort style swimming pool. Imagine visiting with your parents as you sit around the fire pit while your children swim. Overture is family friendly and welcomes children! They want their residents to feel comfortable extending the onsite amenities to their children and grandchildren.
Some of our parents may be newly retired and active, advancing in age, widowed or just need the extra support of a community. Overture Sugar Land makes it priority for their residents to feel safe with the design of the community. All apartments open to the interior. In fact, if you opt for a garage, your garage opens to the interior of the building as well. The mail room is also located indoors as is an Amazon hub. Trash does not have to be taken outdoors. Residents place their designated trash cans outside of their door each evening and a trash valet collects them. Access into any entry must be gained by a key card if afterhours. If transportation is an issue, Overture Sugar Land partners with Lyft. Residents can contact the onsite concierge to have rides arranged at discounted rates. No money is exchanged with the driver and the resident. The resident will be invoiced with their monthly rent. This is especially helpful for transportation to doctor appointments. Finally, you don’t have to worry about your parent climbing on ladders to change light bulbs are AC filters. All it takes is a simple call and maintenance will take care of all replacements and disposals. Overture is a maintenance free facility for its residents.
