As the son of two pastors, caring for others was deeply ingrained in Godwin Dixon.
“With over 50 pastors in the family, it’s always been a priority doing for others,” Dixon explained. “You do whatever for the Glory of God and give.”
Dixon has dedicated the past 35 years of his life to providing the best care for seniors. Now, working with his partner Teresa Whittington, is set to bring their high standard of assisted living and memory care at Teresa’s House to Argyle. With custom, ranch-style homes with 16 private rooms and common kitchen, dining and living areas, residents enjoy a homelike environment.
Dixon said it is similar to a fraternity or sorority house for seniors.
“Being in a familiar setting works better. We model houses built for seniors,” Dixon said. “With each having 16 rooms, they are big enough to host fun activities, and also small enough you know everyone.”
Their first facility at Craig Ranch in McKinney has garnered stellar reviews for its care and facilities.
Dixon, who lives in the area, said he wanted to bring a world-class facility to Argyle, a community which strives for excellence.
“There are no corners cut,” Dixon said.
Along with the best staffing of licensed care, the Argyle facility features several enrichment activity centers in the boutique neighborhood. One of the featured facilities is the horse paddock, which offers equine therapy.
“Equine therapy is amazing for seniors, especially for seniors with symptoms of dementia,” Dixon said. “Argyle is perfect for an onsite horse paddock.”
The facility also features a fully furnished vintage kitchen and a classic garage complete with a 1965 Mustang.
“It’s a man cave with a 1965 Mustang,” Dixon explained. “We wanted to have fun activities for men and women.”
Dixon is honored to continue his mission of caring for others.
