Our Family

At Forefront Living, our roots in the Dallas area run deep. For more than 40 years, we’ve remained committed to investing in seniors and empowering people to live and thrive their way, at every stage of life. Today, Forefront Living stands on the same bedrock principles that have guided us throughout our history: providing exceptional care, showing compassion for each other, celebrating diversity in all aspects of life, expressing our faith by welcoming and serving community members of any faith, and striving to live lives and offer services built on integrity, transparency and honesty.

When the personal finances of a resident or patient at one of our family of communities are exhausted, the Forefront Living Foundation steps in to ensure that our outstanding, compassionate care continues on uninterrupted. This is only possible thanks to our Faith Caring Funds for Benevolent Care and the faithful, generous support of our growing community of donors.

66 tree-lined acres located in the middle of the Dallas metro area serve as an oasis for members of our community. Here, you’ll find a close-knit neighborhood atmosphere; expansive dining, wellness and spiritual opportunities; and active, engaged community members who are thriving. Our full continuum of care includes spacious independent living apartments and cottages, assisted living services, certified Alzheimer’s and dementia care, skilled nursing care, specialized rehabilitation and more.  

Now under construction and opening in 2024, The Outlook at Windhaven has at its core a single mission: to be a thriving, engaging community where seniors can enjoy every moment of every day. This will be a vibrant place, filled with interesting people and possibilities, where you’ll be surrounded by beautiful spaces indoors and out and enjoy living in the heart of West Plano with all that it offers.

We believe in the unique blessings hospice and palliative care can bring to patients and their loved ones. Our goal is to provide comfort, dignity and peace, while helping those we serve live well and as fully as possible, because even in life’s difficult times, every moment matters.  

A unique alternative to traditional in-home hospice care, The Pickens Center is a residential and inpatient hospice center that is the first of its kind in the Dallas area. Features include private care suites featuring views of our beautiful gardens and lake and accommodations designed specifically for families, as well as innovative educational programs and partnerships with universities, hospitals and healthcare systems to help transform end-of-life care.
