Reviews of Assisted Living Facilities in Houston

I have a family member at this location. I never dreamed I could place my family member in such a lovely environment. The grounds are beautiful, plenty of space to take a walk, sit outside and soak up some sun, or enjoy a shaded patio. I visit several times a week and have not once left worried. The residential rooms are spacious and clean. The common areas are relaxing and well furnished. The residents are all relaxed and quite comfortable in their surroundings. There are no offending odors!! I could not ask for a better staff. From the office down each person I’ve met is friendly, kind and will happily assist in any way they can. They are so very caring, professional and patient with the residents. The decision to place a loved one is hard, hard, hard. Each time I leave from visiting her I have a smile and I’m encouraged that I’ve made the right choice for her. She is well cared for, they have several daily activities from puzzles to fitness as well as games and activities to improve cognitive and memory skills. I find myself thinking I’d like to move there myself! Look no further, this is a well run home for your family member.

This facility is by far the worst place to have a loved one in. The facility is very old and outdated. The hospital beds are completely outdated and not suitable for anyone, let alone sick/ill patients. The staff here should be completely revamped, to say that the staff is incompetent is actually an understatement. The nurses, are not capable of doing their jobs, they are lack basic knowledge and they are very rude and impatient with the patients. The doctors, Dr. Roberto Camacho, specifically, should not by any means be in any type of health care! This chauvinistic, uneducated man, lacks basic knowledge as well! He had no bedside manner, he was extremely rude to my mother(patient) as well as my family! He is incapable of doing his job! My mother was basically discharged with nothing to come home with and my family has been trying to reach the social worker for Garden Terrace, with several failed attempts of course. My mother is currently at home, and she has made “0” progress after being there 15+ days. The physical therapy is below average at Garden Terrace. Everyone single staff member from the nurses, doctors, food administration, social workers, etc. all should reconsider their professions immediately! I absolutely hated this place! I hated every day my mother was there. Please don’t have anyone you love and cherish placed here at Garden Terrace! If I could give this place -5 rating I would!

After almost five years, I moved out of Anthology. The place has become so poorly managed, the staff does not stay, the maintenance is poor, what they advertise for amenities does not happen, no guest parking, the rent keeps going up and they do not honor the rental agreement that we all signed. Many of the residents are emotionally fragile due to problems that are not addressed. Keep looking.

I went to Ella Springs Senior Living Community. I liked it a lot. It's farther away from me, and I didn't like the layout of the apartments, but it was very nice. It was really pretty, they were very informative, and they walked me around. It was big, and I only saw the assisted living side. It would be a good place for somebody, but it just didn't fit our needs. What impressed me was it was owned by two men, not a company, and they were really hands on there. One of the men called me to confirm my appointment, he told me about the VA benefits that you could apply for, which no other place told me about. That impressed me. I liked that it's individually owned and not a corporation.

I went to Ella Springs Senior Living Community. It was a very nice facility and I liked it a lot. The staff was nice. They have a lot of activities. I was there around lunch time, I just saw the menu, and it looked good. They showed me two-bedrooms, and I liked the fact that they had molding, there was plenty of room, plenty of carpet. It was very nice, but it wasn't real fancy.

When my parents stayed at Tarrytowne Estates, we never had a single issue with any of the staff, from the sales person to the managers, as well as the bookkeeping; they were all great. They have opened up some of their space to allow any physician to come in and work with the residents who choose to have him. He was of great quality, too, and that was not my experience elsewhere with the doctors they were working with. I was just very, very pleased with those results. They offer a variety of floor plans in the community. When she and my dad first moved there, they were moving from a larger residence, and I knew that the adjustment to a lesser space would be a concern, so we started out with a two-bedroom apartment for the two of them and then downsized to a one-bedroom. After my dad passed away, she eventually went to an efficiency type of apartment. They were all good, they had ample space, and we had no issues with it. I like the fact that they have walk-in showers, and they got rid of the old bathtubs. They really worked hard to have a good quality to what they had. They also have plenty of activities, but my mom didn't do a whole lot of them. One thing that my parents were not satisfied with from all of the other communities they went in was the food, but Tarrytown Estates has an on-site chef. They don't bring their food in, and it's always served hot. The homemade rolls and the homemade desserts are just of high quality, and that is an important aspect for senior citizens. I could not match their value anywhere else.

I was going to take Copperfield Estates before I made up with my sister. In fact, I was planning to call them the next day and say I would take it. I liked it very much. Everything just meshed, and I thought it was a great place. The only staff I saw was very nice. I don't drive, so she came and got me and then brought me home. I didn't do any eating there. It looked good, though, and the menu was excellent. I only met one of the other people who live there, and she was very nice, but she wasn't doing anything, just showing me her apartment. The apartment looked marvelous. I'm sure my cat would have loved it. They allow pets there. I have to pay a bit extra, but they would have allowed me to bring my cat. I was very impressed, and even though it was a studio apartment, there was a balcony. I was going to buy a chair and table for it. There were some things I couldn't check out like the food, but it looked good, and the whole place pleased me. Tanya, who accompanied me, was very nice; she showed me all sorts of interesting things that I liked; and she drove out here and picked me up. The facility looked beautiful to me.

Lone Star Living is very nice. It's independent living, and my friend has her own apartment but with 24/7 care and 3 meals a day are provided. They have a wonderful staff, a very nice facility. They are very accommodating, caring, and nice people. They have quite a few activities but that we haven't ventured into yet. From what I can see and heard, the food is very good. I'm petty happy with it.

I'm moving into Brookdale Memorial City. It has everything I need. My apartment has a full kitchen, they gave me covered parking, and they gave me a pendant to wear in case I fall. The bathroom is nice, and it has a big enough closet. I haven't seen anything except for my apartment yet because of the virus. Everything is closed in the building except for the apartments. They provide three meals a day.

Care Cost Comparison
The type of care required is the most significant factor that influences the cost of senior care in Houston and throughout the country. In Houston, the cost of nursing home care is more than $1,000 higher than the cost of assisted living. When compared with home care, the cost of assisted living is only slightly less. However, it’s important to consider other costs that are associated with continuing to live in the home when budgeting for home care, such as rent, utilities, groceries and home maintenance, which make home care a far more expensive option.

The program provides seniors the chance to choose care providers when possible.

Optional State Supplement
Seniors who require additional financial support to help pay for the cost of room and board in an assisted living facility or long-term care home may apply for an optional state supplement(OSS). OSS payments are provided to seniors who receive long-term care and are a supplement to federal SSI payments.
The amount of OSS received is calculated based on the senior’s income and budgetary needs. Seniors can apply by contacting the Texas Department of Health and Human Services at 1-855-937-2372.
