In the late 1950s it became apparent to many active Methodist Church members in central Texas that there was a need for a Christian environment for the elderly who could no longer maintain their own homes. Construction began in 1959 and residents enjoyed a small chapel, activity room, and dining room, as well as their private living quarters. The popularity of the Golden Age Home quickly grew so that there was a waiting list for admission and only residents who could walk in and care for themselves were accepted.

Golden Age Home continues to operate as a nonprofit organization and has a volunteer board of directors that oversees the operations.

Golden Age Home Assisted Living, under the direction of Nicole Burnett, offers an improved program for people who need some assistance but are able to do many things on their own. A newly designed and staffed dietary department brings home style cooking that is high quality and will improve the way we dine. Residents are able to choose each day from a variety of types of meals as well as menus.
