Our History and Experience

Seguin Assisted Living opened on April 4, 2000, with owners Billy G. Belcher, wife Norma Belcher and daughter Karen Taylor. Billy and Norma Belcher were in the nursing home business for 20 years, owning and operating nursing homes in Seguin, Stockdale, Floresville, and Goliad.

Upon graduation from Southwest Texas State University, now Texas State University, Karen joined her dad in the nursing home business as the dietitian for his homes. Billy sold his buisness and retired in 1980 and Karen went on to work in area nursing homes as the consultant dietitian for 23 years.

Seguin Assisted LivingIn 1998 Billy suggested the idea of assisted living to Karen. She attended the Assisted Living licensing class at Texas State University, received the ALF license and began researching plans for Seguin Assisted Living. In May 1999 ground was broken.

Seguin Assisted Living opened in 2000 offering 30 apartments. By February 2001 plans were underway to expand by adding 20 apartments and those opened in September 2002. In May 2005 upon graduation from Texas State University, Lindsey Taylor joined the family business. In July 2007 Karen and her husband Larry bought out Billy and Norma. Billy and Norma were well known for having superior nursing homes and that reputation was remembered by the community and area when SAL opened. Norma and Karen developed the menus and have placed great emphasis on the quality of meals served.

There is much pride in the family owned and operated business. Residents and family know that we are available and they can communicate with us on a daily basis.
