Excerpt from “I’m Not Alone Anymore”, by Father Patrick Martin
In early August 2018 my dear sister Patricia got a phone call asking if I might be available to celebrate Mass for them at Villa de San Antonio. This appointment left me curious. What is this Villa de San Antonio, I wondered? Beverly, the caller, invited me and my sister and brother in law to come and see – to come for lunch one day. We went and the rest is history! I don’t remember much about the wonderful tour we had that day, only that the chapel where I would celebrate Mass for the residents and visitors of the villa had absolutely no steps and no rugs for me to trip over! Our tour ended with a fantastic lunch in the villa’s restaurant dining room. Near the end of the meal, I exclaimed, to the shock of my sister, “I’d love to live here!” I had no idea when I agreed to come and check out the place for my possibly coming to celebrate Mass that I was actually checking my future home! …. I had lived with my sister and brother in law for six years. We were family, I thought, forever, but now I was truly being called to let the residents and staff of the Villa de San Antonio be my brothers and sisters. ….
As this book finally goes to press, I’ve been a resident of the Villa de San Antonio for a couple of weeks. I join many of the residents for the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Rosary each afternoon at three o’clock, at daily Mass, at meals and at many other activities. I celebrate Mass for my fellow residents each Sunday morning in that fantastic chapel! … What excites me most about this move is that is that it really wasn’t my move. Had that call from Beverly never come in , I would have never thought of moving. I was perfectly happy living with my dear family. It’s like God slapped me upside the head and said “OK, you’ve recuperated long enough. It’s time to get back to the work for which I’ve called you!

Sincerest thanks to the Villa for hosting my parents Eileen and Bill for so many years. Special thanks for all your efforts during the recent memorial service for my Mom, Eileen Rovira. Your technical support during the service, your culinary contributions, your friendliness and compassion are all so deeply appreciated by my family. I personally stayed at the Villa for two days with my two adult children and young grandson. Your hospitality was exceptional. Father Pat is nothing less than a blessing. Thanks so much for all you gave to our parents and our family over the years.

We moved my father into this facility a couple of months ago and it has been the best move for him. He was a different facility prior to moving here, so this place was definitely a welcomed change. There are a lot of different options regarding apartments and sizes and we selected a nice two bedroom apartment. The food, in comparison to his last place and the half of dozen or so places we toured, is top notch. Heck, in comparison to what I was cooking for him, it is incredible. They take him to his doctor’s appointment and do have all kinds of activities, trips to walmart, HEB and restaurants. He keeps busy and is having a great time. Great value and would highly recommend Villa as an option to explore.

Villa De San Antonio San Antonio is an older community. I think the services that they offer and the care they give to the residents, I would rate a 5-star. The services was pretty standard, like looking in on the residents and making sure everything is going well with them. They have physical therapy, they have amenities for taking their clients around. They offer similar services as other places, but other places need to be more involved with the residents, but this community is good with that. The staff there was very helpful, they could work with you.

We moved my widowed and elderly mother in law to the Villas a few moths ago. We are so happy that she’s so happy there. Everyone is so nice
and all of the residents look so happy too. I was hesitant at first but after we met Natalie and took the tour we knew it was the place for my mother in law. Oh and the food is delicious!!! They have a great chef.

Villa De San Antonio was a five-star facility. They have a nice layout and it’s gated. They have independent and assisted living available. They have a large dining area that’s open all the time for the residents. They have a salon, an exercise facility, a pool, and transportation. It’s very inclusive. The staff member was very friendly and very engaged. They have scheduled events for the residents, and they bring professionals into the facility, like if they need help with their taxes or podiatry. It’s very well kept and it’s very active. It was a Saturday and there were residents coming and going and families visiting. They seemed very caring and they really try to accommodate things to make the lives of their residents a little easier.

I just moved all of my father’s stuff into Villa De San Antonio. It’s perfect. There’s somebody at the front desk 24/7. They’re very helpful with anything you need, and the chef is fabulous. The dining area is wonderful. It’s like a 5-star hotel with beautiful linens, and they treat you like you’re a king or queen. They have really nice activities; he just doesn’t like to participate. They have music and musicians come in every Wednesday afternoon, and they have a social hour. I always see people in the general living area playing cards and games. They have crafts and anything you can think of. It’s a wonderful place. I can’t think of anything that I’d be unhappy about except the price, but it’s pretty comparable to other facilities. The staff is very good. There is no better food anywhere. The facility is very nice, very clean, and safe. Their apartments are larger than anywhere else for this type of facility.

This is a lovely community with great amenities and a great staff. There is a pool, a beautiful chapel, a gym, computer lab, theater room and a craft room. They offer many different activities to entertain their residents. There are several floor plans to choose from. Come out today and tour with Allison.

Villa de San Antonio is a nice community. It’s bigger in the sense that it’s more spread out. They have living quarters outside of the main building, and they’re like little houses for independent care. The room that we saw in the main building were average, but the little villas on the outside were very nice 2-bedrooms. Our tour guide was really nice. He was just a substitute, but he did a great job.

Villa de San Antonio is a wonderful IL/AL community. What really sets them apart are the active residents that create a fantastic community culture, and the caring staff that tend to the needs of their residents. Roger, the community nurse does a fantastic job of keeping close clinical eyes on his residents and Alison, Natalie, and Jenny do a wonderful job of thoughtfully walking their prospective community members through the move in process. Go by on Wednesday afternoon and you’ll find the residents dancing to the live music they have every week. It’s truly a unique and lively experience.
