The Monarch Estates senior living community is located in Auburn, Alabama, just two miles from Auburn University. This independent living community is in a prime location for residents to shop and eat out, with the University Crossing Shopping Center less than a mile away and several restaurants nearby. Catch a soccer or football game at Duck Samford Stadium, just a five-minute walk away. The adjacent park is also home to several baseball fields where you can cheer on local teams.
Residents enjoy living just seven minutes from all the amenities of Auburn University. Cheer on the Tigers or enjoy any of the international festivals and art exhibits regularly hosted on campus. When grandkids visit, take them out for ice cream at Toomer's Drugs, an Auburn institution since 1896.
Monarch Estates is an award-winning, independent senior living community. Awards include the 2020 Great Place to Work certification, the 2019 Great Place to Work certification, and the 2018 Great Place to Work certification.
Keeping You Informed
Our commitment to helping older people live better means sharing important and timely information to help you make an informed decision to live in a Holiday community. Monarch Estates operates with extensive protocols that mitigate the spreading of COVID-19. If a resident tests positive for COVID-19, we notify residents and their designated contacts, our employees, and the local health department. In addition, the number of active cases is shared here. We are so proud of our team’s efforts and hard work to protect our community. See here for more information on our prevention and response measures.

Connection isn’t our goal. It’s our promise.
That’s why life at Holiday Retirement isn’t prescriptive, it’s personal. This is an era of opportunity to find passions that spark curiosity and people that inspire us to learn who one is. Life at Holiday Retirement isn’t about a building or amenities, it’s about the ways those simple pleasures and the people we share them with transform us every day. A meal becomes a memory. A trip to the store becomes an adventure. And a walk around the grounds becomes a tradition between friends. We are Holiday Retirement and we believe life is best lived among friends on your terms.

Beauty Care Needs Met On-Site
The convenience of Monarch Estates' on-site beauty salon and barber means all you have to do is walk in to get your hair and nails done. Of course, appointments are available.
The salon has been in-house for 8 years and outside clients are welcome to enjoy the services as well.
Fitness Right at Home
Monarch Estates residents enjoy a variety of health and fitness activities, from weekly group exercise classes to anytime access to on-site fitness equipment.
Residents can participate in daily Sit and Be Fit classes led by residents or workout on the Nordic Track, reclining bike or treadmill. Weekly Zumba and Tai Chi classes are also available. Enjoy strolling the on-site walking paths throughout the spacious grounds. Lighted paths encourage residents to enjoy the beautiful grounds, including the Veteran’s garden, a project completed by a local Eagle Scouts troop.
Let Us Serve You
Enjoy restaurant-style dining served with courtesy and care by our staff who know you. Chef-prepared meals are served every day in Monarch Estates' dining room. Sit with friends or invite your family for a special occasion in our private dining room. Each meal is designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of community members.
The Chef has won many awards including Chef of the Year - Region 2 and multiple Chef of the Month awards. A monthly round table allows the chef to receive feedback from residents regarding the menu and meals, including favorite dishes like Southern Fried Chicken and California Grilled Chicken.
Make Memories Exploring the Surrounding Community
There’s so much to explore in the Auburn area and Monarch Estates makes sure that residents experience as much as possible. Regular outings to favorite restaurants, local events, and more introduce residents to all their neighborhood has to offer and connect them to the surrounding community.
Residents enjoy weekly trips to the mall and dining out at local restaurants every Monday. During football season, if they’re not having their own tailgate party and watching the game at home, residents like to cheer on the Auburn Tigers at the University. Other popular destinations are The Heart of Dixie Train Museum and the farmers market.
Life is Never Boring
Monarch Estates’ comprehensive calendar is packed with both recurring activities and special events. The variety of available activities is meant to enrich the whole person by stimulating physical, emotional, spiritual, intellectual, creative, social or vocational wellness.
Residents love playing Bingo, Bridge, Blackjack and bean bag baseball. The Movie Club and Music Lover’s Club are also favorites among the residents. And if you have a green thumb, there's a community garden looking for caretakers!
Pets Make Life Better
Furry friends are welcomed as residents at Monarch Estates. We understand how important the companionship and bond that seniors share with their pets is. We’re delighted to have cats, dogs, birds, and even bunnies as part of our community.
Doggy stations are set up along the community's walkways for resident pets. Residents love when therapy animals come to the community to play and cuddle!

Monarch Estates is fully equipped with Wi-Fi access to help you connect to friends, family and important information.

Lend a Helping Hand
We have empowered residents to become resident ambassadors. These individuals have often lived in the community for quite some time and enjoy helping new residents get acclimated to senior living. They encourage new residents to take their time settling in and them feel comfortable in their new home.
The residents at Monarch enjoy their Sunday Ice Cream Social with local high school students, and decorating for the holidays with local children.
