The staff at Elmcroft of Braeswood was lovely, very friendly, and helpful. When I first visited, I met with the pharmacy tech, the marketing manager, and the sales manager, and they were very helpful in showing me around. The apartments were larger than the other place. My father has mobility issues, so he actually needed a smaller residence. They had a common area and events going on that would be inclusive of family every week. That was probably our second choice if the other one did not work out. They had a living room area, but it was a little bit smaller and less accommodating to the whole community.

Family style living is this facility's advantage. Elmcroft of Braeswood is truly a place to call home. The moment one enters the facility, they are mesmerized by the warm atmosphere. The facility is open and clean. Everything that is needed to enjoy and retire in comfort is at this facility. The location of this long term facility is near everything. There are shopping centers, malls, restaurants, banks, and entertainment entities all in the vicinity of Elmcroft of Braeswood. Kroger grocery chain, IBC bank, and Olive Garden are within two miles of the facility. There are other delicious restaurants that are within five blocks such as Sarpino's pizzeria and Smashburger. I was very impressed with the staff who made sure I was comfortable while I waited for someone to assist me. The person in charge of new clients was knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. There were a few questions and concerns, and these concerns/questions were quickly addressed. This is a company that wants you to feel comfortable and sure about your decision to become their client. Everything at the property, as well as the paperwork was well organized and thorough. The facility has dining and delicious menus. These food choices allow the resident to modify when necessary. The dining room is spacious and clean. Also, the staff is very interactive in the dining area. Residents needing assistance are quickly spotted and assisted. The residents are served at table side, and receive substitutes are refills when requested. I felt that the residents were treated with respect. Dignity is also preserved for the patient while they are being transported. The caregivers appeared to be interacting with the residents and making sure everyone left the dining area and returned to their rooms safely when their meal ended. This is a family friendly facility that is an extension of home. There are all the amenities of home here: home cooked meals, nice rooms, and entertainment/common areas. Moreover, this facility has the rehabilitative measures in place to assure seniors receive a good quality of life. There are activities on and off the property, social gatherings, and opportunities for outside events. The cost of this facilities is comparative to other assisted living/independent living facilities. Within the moderate price range, Elmcroft of Braeswood is worth the cost. Here, seniors are treated like individuals living their lives, instead of individuals living out the end of their lives. Life isn't ending here, so the feel among the residents is one of high morale and autonomy.

Elmcroft Braeswood is in a busy part of town; but if you like the day to day hustle and bustle, this is the place! I walked in to a very inviting environment. As I walked through the halls some staff spoke and others never raised their head to acknowledge me. The menus are fair, but not much variety. The residents seemed content and comfortable. Elmcroft Breaswood is clean and overs a comfortable living space for their residents.
