  • Needs improvement

    it was a nice place but it needed clean up in certain areas. The caregivers really didn't seem to care. The food was good and he always ate it. We chose this community they were willing to accept him at his young age and disease progression. I would recommend this community if they made some changes.

  • Not the worst but definitely not the best

    Pros are the location, the activities director, the community relations director, some of the staff who really care despite being overworked, and the fact that you aren't charged more for level of care services. Cons are everything else. This facility is fine if you or your loved one just needs a place to stay where someone can make sure you/they don't wander off and that there are regular meals. If things are needed beyond that like bathing, nursing care, therapy, nutritionally-balanced meals, prevention of falls, or anything beyond a hot meal plus some socialization and a monitored "escape" route then this is not the place for them. And you still should visit often and have a camera installed if you cannot. Only take feedback from people who have actually lived there not just done a tour. Anything they sell you that states otherwise is just marketing. A facility is only as good as it's staff and the overall administration seems kind and likely means well but the daily duties fall by the wayside with disgruntled and disorganized care staff who are underpaid and overworked (according to them).

  • Nightmare on Braeswood

    Worst place I ever placed my mom. Do not think I will ever go by your recommendation again. Staff was rude and disrespectful. Care was totally disorganized. Many times ran out of gloves, supplies, etc. Right hand never know what left hand was doing. Poor communication. Staff disregarded rights of client and they dropped her and cut her leg and she wound up in the emergency room...twice at which time I moved out!! Total waste of time and money. Wasn’t a pleasant stay but nightmare.
