Everybody was very nice at Brookdale Sugar Land. However, my mom's memory is not as bad as the patients I saw there. The building was small, older, and looked like a cozy house, but it needs some remodeling. The center patio was sad and basically had nothing on it. The people were very attentive.

  • Prescription drugs
  • Vision, hearing and dental care
  • Laboratory services
  • Nursing home care or residence in a home for people with mental illness or intellectual disabilities
  • Home health care

  • Earn no more than $771 (individual) or $1,157 (married couple) in monthly income
