Independent Living at The Chandler Estate

Morningside at The Chandler Estate offers senior-living accommodations that are ideal for seniors from all walks of life. Our independent living community includes all the amenities associated with home while eliminating the hassle of maintenance and upkeep. 

The Chandler Estate community includes a total of three buildings: the French Residence, the Howard Residence, and the Legacy House. Both the French and Howard buildings feature apartments with an array of comfortable floorplans options, each equipped with a full kitchen and granite countertops. The Chandler Estate has the convenience of onsite dining services, a beauty and barbershop, activity rooms, an art studio, and an abundance of other amenities! In addition to plentiful walking paths and mature trees, residents can enjoy time on the beautiful estate that provides a peaceful and active way of life. 

The Chandler Estate’s Legacy House sits in the original Victorian home of Mr. & Mrs. E. B. Chandler, built in 1887. According to the book, San Antonio’s Monte Vista, the Chandler Estate’s Legacy House “can truthfully be called one of the show places of Texas.” One of the many unique features of the Legacy House is the detailed wood carvings found throughout the entire mansion, hand-made by Mrs. Chandler herself. As visitors enter, the deep-hued wood-paneled walls and beautiful parquet flooring gracefully greet the eye. An intimate sitting room is framed with timeless stained-glass windows, the screened-in sunroom is open and airy – perfect for reading or table games, and the large wrap-around porch is ideal for enjoying lovely San Antonio days!

People First... Always

In all that we do, the individuals that we serve come first. That means putting their needs first and ourselves second.
hands holding in shape of heart

Compassionate Action... Now

Don’t pass the buck and never say “It’s not my job.” Be a problem solver: Problem = Solution + Action

Respectful Communication... Everywhere

Respectful, effective communication with those we serve and those we work alongside with leads to happiness and positivity.

Why Our Residents Love Us

Excellent and Beautiful Facilities

My wife and I have been residents in the Independent Living Menger House Apartments at Morningside Ministries at Menger Springs for four years. We chose Menger Springs because of its Hill Country location, excellent and beautiful facilities along with their commitment to personal care and to truly care for those who have cared for so many others by a Not For Profit Christian Corporation. We knew that regardless of what challenges or changes we might meet in the days and years ahead, Menger Springs would be able to provide the care for us. My wife feels so secure here and has the option of participating in so many activities, pursue individual endeavors or to feel free to remain in our apartment. We are so pleased to be residents at Morningside Ministries Menger Springs in beautiful Boerne! I highly recommend it!

Security, Convenience, and Caring

I learned about Morningside Ministries at Menger Springs when two of my neighbors moved there. Another friend and I frequently drove from our home in Kerrville to visit and play bridge with them. I don't think we ever left that one of us didn't say " I'd like to live here someday." When I realized that "someday" was fast approaching I started visiting retirement communities in several places, including my former home in Colorado where I still had close friends. None of them were as attractive physically as Morningside and none offered as much in the way of programs and services. I chose Morningside for three basic reasons: security, convenience and the sense of a caring community. I have the security of knowing that I will always be cared for, the convenience of having all my needs met in one place and the joy of living in a community where everyone, residents and staff, are considered as family.

My parents moved into their Meadows independent living (atrium) apartment almost 2 years ago, from another city. Their (and our) experience here has exceeded our highest hopes. From the compassionate, friendly, helpful staff to the delicious meals, activities, their apartment, amenities, and welcoming residents, we could not have imagined or found a better place for them to be for this season of life! We 5 "kids" are so thankful that they are happy, safe, comfortable, busy, and have made wonderful new friends, both residents and staff. Thank you, MM! It's definitely worth checking out for YOUR parents, too. (Or yourself!)
