Welcome to the ARC

Welcome to the Army Residence Community, a Continuing Care Retirement Community, in sunny San Antonio, Texas – one of the most distinctive, active, and luxurious retirement communities in the world. Discover a dynamic lifestyle that connects military retirees in an atmosphere of camaraderie you won’t find anywhere else. Here we encourage our Residents to embody our motto everyday: 

We are home to approximately 750 retired career military officers, spouses, widows, and widowers. Our Residents represent honorably served, retired officers from all branches of U.S. military service. There are over 150 planned activities each month, which include meaningful pursuits that promote wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Our dining venues range from casual to gourmet and residential options offer something for everyone. Resort-style amenities and the security of accredited and quality health services make the ARC an ideal Life Plan Community.

San Antonio is home to many military facilities, including Randolph Air Force Base, Fort Sam Houston and San Antonio Military Medical Center (SAMMC, formerly BAMC), with shopping, medical services, and other support. This military connection gives you another prime reason for considering the ARC when you seek an active retirement community.

Our Mission

Our Mission is to provide the finest atmosphere for retirement living and to allow residents to be as independent as possible, yet free to use the community’s services and amenities as they wish – all at the most reasonable cost commensurate with the offering of first class quality services.
