We chose The Waterford on Huebner, and my parents loved it. The place was great and was not on a busy street. It was light and airy. All the people I dealt with were extremely friendly and personable. They don’t have a pool, but they do have different activities, like games and outings.
We ate lunch at Waterford on Huebner, and the food was very good. The rooms were fine and don’t have kitchens, which for us is a plus because we don’t have to have a kitchen. The staff was very friendly. I would surely recommend this place, especially for someone who has a budget.
I toured The Waterford at Baytown. The experience was very good. It seemed like a nice place with nice people. The staff took me through the whole facility. They had a community room and a dining room, and I was impressed that they had so many things in one place. They had independent living, assisted living, and a memory care all on one site. If I had to put my wife into assisted living, then later on into the memory care, she wouldn’t have to move to a new location.
The place is good, and the food is great at Courtyards. The staff is really out of this world. We are very pleased with it. The price is competitive, and my mother-in-law loves the care. It’s clean because the housekeeping service is good. She plays bingo, and they have exercises, field trips, and music shows. With her personality, it’s good to see that she is doing these things. She goes out to mingle with people. It’s the best thing we could ever done. Everything from the building to the staff is nice. They have a move-in special wherein in the first three months, they get $1,000 off a month, and it’s very helpful.
The Courtyards at Lake Granbury was actually more than my loved one could handle, but it seemed like a very good place. The rooms were clean and very nice had she been a little able to handle that big of a space, and the hallways were a little long for what she needed. The food was very good and all of the amenities were very good. They had an exercise room, a library, and kitchen that were very good.
The Waterford was a very modern, new, very clean, and very nice facility. I talked to some of the people there who were very friendly. I tried the food and was impressed with the quality. I was not happy with the location for myself, but it was a very nice community. The staff was very nice. The rooms were very modern and very nice. I liked them. I would recommend them.
We looked at Waterford a long time ago, but it was not acceptable because they didn't have kitchen facilities. It was OK and clean. I have friends who live there who are very satisfied. The staff was friendly.
I liked Waterford very much. The facility was great with a good part of the financing going to the food and the meals. I was not particularly pleased with the fact that there was no variant there; I could not arrange for a discount based on the amount of meals that I ate.
My visit to The Waterford was wonderful. The place was nice, comfortable looking, and certainly large enough. They have one-bedrooms, two-bedrooms, and a studio-type that all have a kitchen with a small table, microwave, refrigerator, and stove. The people there were nice and friendly. When I walked in, they had my name on a board, which I thought was a very nice, special touch. I was treated to lunch, and the food was fantastic. You could definitely tell it wasn’t from out of a can. However, they were a little steep for my budget.
Mother has been a resident for 4 years and is now 93. Everything the previous reviewer detailed is true. Activities are limited by the resident's interests which seem to be meals and bingo, but an effort by staff to offer other alternatives is always made despite frequent poor attendance.
Food is well prepared but the seasoning (salt, spices, low fat dairy) puts a limit on what the cooks can do.
Excellent management, building and grounds immaculate, safety emphasized.
The grounds of the facility are maintained with easy access parking in front of the building for visitors. Upon entering the facility each visitor is greeted and asked to sign in at the front desk. There is an open social area in the front and residents are visiting with each other and guests that may have come to see them. There are staff members that are attentive to several of the residents. The hallways of the facility are decorated with individual pictures and items that seem to reflect the resident and their personality. Some doors to the residents are open with the resident in their sitting area of the room. The rooms are spacious and have been maintained even though Covenant is one of the older facilities in Abilene. Overall the facility is clean, with trash bins mostly empty reflecting that trash has been collected earlier in the day. There is a small room off the center area where residents have some items they appear to be working on together with a leader. The atmosphere is peaceful and smells fresh throughout the building.
Covenant Place of Burleson is a quiet community providing support services for assisted living. The community has a country feel and the staff and residents have a family like relationship. The staff are friendly toward the residents but they could benefit from being a little more motivated when not having direct contact with the residents. The activities director is good at providing a variety of activities that meets the residents needs. The activities director encourages social interaction and create conversation among the residents in between games and entertainment. Wellness is important at this community and is combined with activities such as exercise classes and walking. According to the residents the food is average in regards to taste but sometimes the menu lack consistency with the food served.
This facility is nestled in a quite neighborhood with lots of trees and with a pond, creek and Diamond Oaks Country Club golf course just on the other side. They offer a wide variety of events, activities and recreation to keep everyone involved and happy. The staff is wonderfully helpful and available 24/7 for what ever the needs of the resident may be. It's nice that there is onsite therapy available as well as a home health agency. The large and spacious dining room offers three meals a day that rivals any nice restaurant in town. They have available transportation for those who may need to make a trip to the store or a doctors appointment. The library and game room is welcoming and a nice place to visit with family members or other residents. There are several different floor plans for the residents to choose from that will meet their needs. A great, quiet out of the way yet close to so much place to live.
This is a beautiful facility. It's like being at a mini resort in the middle of town. The decor is warm and inviting as is the staff. The 24 hour ice cream parlor and snack bar is a wonderful idea. Sometimes you just have to have a bit of ice cream late at night. The rooms are nice and the bathrooms are spacious, you don't feel cramped. The dining room is elegant, like being at a hotel and the variety of choices on the menu is wonderful. It's also nice to see that there is a private dining room available for individuals and their families if needed. It's nice that there is at least one major event a month for residents to enjoy and be involved in. The library and lounge areas are comfortable and inviting. The front looks very inviting with the rockers on the front porch and the landscaping around the courtyard area is beautiful and well kept. A great place for some one to make a new home.
This is a small facility with a grand feel. From the gathering area to the bathrooms it spacious and homelike. The staff is professional and informative. The wellness staff does an excellent job monitoring the residents collectively and individually. They always give thorough feedback on the residents. When events are held they are well planned and meaningful. The culinary team prepare wholesome meals made with fresh ingredients.
The Waterford of Plano is a great and safe place for seniors. There is shopping center, restaurants and even a fishing stream in close proximity to the center. The center is clean and smells fresh in the main gathering area. The office staff is nice. They are very patient and thorough when caring for the residents. The rooms are spacious and modern. The activities are average and includes big celebration on holidays. Family members are alway welcome to participate. The food is satisfying and enjoy by the residents.
When visiting Dogwood Trails of Palestine I noticed it is a home-like community that offers many comforts of home making the residents feel comfortable an relaxed. This community is well staffed with caring and sincere employees. I saw employees assisting residents in wheelchairs and with eating. The residents were kind and some even talked to me about how well they are enjoying their stay at Dogwood Trails. The menu and activities are well planned and offer some variety.
Meadow Lakes is a nice, quiet facility. The entry lobby is very nice and comfortable for anyone who may want to sit and visit or just enjoy watching the fish in the tank. The 2nd floor open area is just as nice with a pool table for anyone who may want to play pool and a very large book collection for their lending library. The apartments are perfect in size, with a nice little kitchenette. The whole facility seems to be well kept and clean. I didn't rank high on the Staff because each time I have been there I don't ever see any staff except the receptionist. Occasionally not even her. I don't really know much about the food served but I have heard that it is good. I'm not sure how many activities they have or do with the residents, I know they do take them out shopping. All in all it seems to be a very nice facility and residents that I have seen are very happy there.
This community is clean and maintained nicely. There are handrails along the hallways similar to a nursing home or hospital. It's quiet and the residents seem content. The staff works together as a team. The are always available to answer questions. The residents individual care plans, directs the staff on how to maintain and improve independence. The food options are accommodating for special diets and served resturant-style. Along with the amenities, residents can join others in vibrant activities planned daily.
This community on the surface makes a favorable initial impression. The amentities in the public areas are pretty nice but are showing a little wear.
We were told there was one caregiver in the memory care area for every 2-3 residents and that there were many activities offered to stimulate residents with Alzheimers. However, our experience (with the exception of 1-2 evening caregivers) is that they do the minimum required getting residents up, dressed and to meals. Most of the time I see residents sleeping in their wheelchair beds while caregivers sit around and txt or play on their phones.
In the assisted living area, the management is slow to respond to requests for maintenance in apartments and the community was without a maintenance employee for more than 2 months. Food is adequate, but nothing to rave about. This assisted living community is geared towards higher-needs, limited mobility residents (using wheelchairs, walkers, etc.) that primarily go to their rooms and go to meals. This is NOT a good fit for active alert seniors that may need a little extra help or monitoring, but still want to be active and stimulated.
At Crescent Place you will be welcomed by the staff and the residents. Making you feel like you are a part of their family. The building is clean and decorated nicely. The rooms are lovely and modern. Outdoors the courtyards are beautifully landscaped. Along the pathways there's seating available for resting. The staff is always willing to assist with any situation big or small. The food is served hot and wholesome. The community has a generous amount of activities and amenities to enjoy daily.
Walnut Creek is tucked away on the calmer side of Mansfield. Walking up to the entrance I felt very safe and peaceful. I saw a couple of small pets and, was surprised I didn't smell any odors. It was super clean and organized. The staff gave me lots of information about the facility and activities. The activities are very interesting and suited to keep the residents active and aware of current events. From what I could see they are very caring and accommodating. The residents were eating and seem to really like the taste of the food.
The Stonefield is a wonderfully planned community, from the landscaping to the decoration you'll be amazed. This community is adequately staff, but many of the staff members didn't even acknowledge my presence. They all seemed pretty busy, so I didn't get offended. Both the menu and activity calendar seem well planned and have taken their senior population into consideration. The Stonefield is an upscale community and very organized.
Azalea Trails is a small cozy community. This community is very relaxing and peaceful. I was welcomed by the desk attendant with a smile and helpful assistance. I enjoyed my tour because the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Some of the residents were returning from a shopping trip and were very happy and upbeat. Azalea Trails is a warm family friendly community that makes everyone feel at home.
Magnolia Court is a mid-sized community with beautiful gardens and patios for residents who like to sit or take walks outside. I was greeted by smiling staff members and the residents who were by the entrance greeted me also. Magnolia Court is well maintained and the layout of the community makes it appear both roomy and homey. I even had a chance to watch some of the residents take part in a bingo game and boy did it look fun!
