I Visited This Community
I visited this facility recently, and I was very impressed with the functional design, clean surroundings, state-of-the -art memory care, and inviting dining experience. The facility is located in a great area in Converse, conveniently located within two miles of NE Methodist Hospital, parks, and shopping. When I first arrived at the facility, I noticed beautiful landscaping and two residents sitting outside in a seating area near the entryway. Upon entering the facility, there is a grand, open floorplan, and I was immediately greeted and assisted. I was visiting a resident at this facility. The resident, who is also my friend, told me that she enjoys living at Esplanade Gardens, and she has been a resident for a few months. This is an assisted living facility, but they also provide skilled nursing services for temporary stays, or for residents/potential residents who are transitioning from a hospital, etc. There are not many assisted living facilities that offer this feature. Therefore, this is a plus. The dining experience is superb, and there is a lot of variety in the menu selection. The baked chicken was tender and cooked to perfection. The atmosphere peaked my appetite, consisting of beautiful decorations, a clean setting, and the smell of good food. The food was presented well on the plate and was appetizing. Desserts are also available, although I did not have any. The residents were addressed by name and received refills on drinks and other assisted when needed. I also noticed that the caregivers assisted the residents even without them asking. One resident dropped her silverware on the floor and immediately received new utensils from the staff member. There are many amenities here and services. The amenities include a salon, activity room, therapeutic room, and media room to name a few. The activities are conducive to physical, mental, and social well-being the seniors. Furthermore, the services offered provide assistance with transportation, housekeeping, and physical and cognitive endurance. The memory care program offers care for seniors experiencing memory challenges. This care extends throughout the facility, and there are conscious efforts to assure that the seniors are being stimulated at every opportunity. Esplanade is great for memory care.
