Best Senior Living in the area!!!

Hands down, this is the best place for your loved one! My mom has lived at Francois Bend for 2 years. She moved in after a long term stay in a Skilled facility. She moved in not walking and very frail. They offer outpatient rehab, a strength training and balance program. The dining room has yummy food. The community allows family to stay with your loved one and be a part of The Francois Bend family. After two year, my mom has fully recovered physically and mentally only because of the loving staff there. She loves her new home and so do I. I couldn't have picked a better place for her to spend the last years of her life. She is so happy and has made many new friends!!... Read more

About the facility Francois Bend Senior Living & Memory Care

Our colorful and family-oriented community is located on seven and a half gorgeous acres of land near the heart of Gonzales. We’re conveniently located by many rehabilitation hospitals, physician’s offices, churches, law enforcement, and more. At Francois Bend, we strive to provide support, while allowing residents to maintain their independence and individuality. We offer four levels of assistance to adults who need extra support and can cater to many unique and evolving health care needs. We also welcome your pets!

By offering 24/7 nursing care, in-house physical therapy, and an in-house medication program, we’re addressing a void that can exist between hospital-level care and nursing homes. All of our apartments are licensed for assisted living residents, which allows them to remain in the same apartment even if they require more assistance. We also provide memory care. Our staff takes great pride in the excellent care they provide!

Our Community

We’re certain you’ll enjoy the many activities and amenities we offer. We have a 9,000 square foot social pavilion, which features a theatre, simulated golfing, gym, chapel, and activities room. We also have an outdoor activity area where you can spend quality time with friends and family. There are many memories to be made...

A Good Place for Memory Care and Older Living Age of Senior Living

This is a good place to stay. The food and activities are good. There is a live singer or band every Friday for the residents to enjoy. There is a set menu for the residents in memory care. The assisted living residents are able to order off an alternative menu. The breakfast is very good here.

Extremely dissatisfied

If you want your loved one to not be taken care of properly then this is the place for you. Rooms are not cleaned, sheets are not washed, meds are not given as instructed, no communication between staff. Calls are not returned concerning issues that are never being addressed. I leave notes for staff in the room bc of their lack of communication and obviously even with the notes they continue to do or not do the same things over and over. It's been 10 months of hell ! If your loved one is unable to do for themselves they are left to sit in their room to rot. No physical or mental activities for the ones like this. Yes, it looks all pretty and clean in the open parts but not so in the rooms. House keeping does a horrible job and laundry doesn't give a care about your clothes. They ball them up in the draw or closet. No respect at all. There are some workers who are caring( and thanks to those who are)but to many just don't care at all. High price for services you don't get !

Beautiful Place! Wonderful Staff!

It was such a lovely environment. I was greeted when I arrived and during my tour staff was pleasant! The community is very clean. Bonus is the Memory Care community-which is the only in this area. When the time is right, my mom will be moving to Francois Bend!

Comfortable. I feel like she's in a safe environment. She's content there, which makes me happy.

I'm happy with them overall. The only problem I've had is she's not getting her meds regularly. I've had to remind them and stay on top of them about that. But beyond that, they've been great. They take good care of her, and they take good care of the place.

As Close to Home As Can Be In a Community

It is an awesome place, but make sure the you're clear of your expectations up front. You should remind them of any dietary restrictions that your loved one has. They are very accommodating once this was sorted out. The food is good and my loved one is happy with it. There is a good variety for the residents.

My tour experience

It looked better on the inside than the outside. The apartments for the more independent levels of care seemed nice, but their memory care area was scary looking to me. I think the people in there you could have put anywhere, and the apartments reflected that. They were dink and drab. It was reminiscent of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Everything I did not want for my loved one. But the people there seemed nice. And they did follow up well after our visit. I just went with a different place where the memory care felt better to me.

A caring community

The management staff was great, The nurse was great. Both the daytime nighttime nurse was just excellent I felt very comfortable with caregivers that provided the care to my wife. The food was okay with a nice variety offered. I chose this community for location as it was close to my house. I would recommend this community to other families.

A Nice Place

It is an expensive community. It was the highest price community that I looked at. It is also the newest community and has the most amenities. They bring in all kinds of services, podiatrists, hair salon, physical therapy. It is great for someone with mobility issues since they bring everything to you. Prior to the quarantine they brought in entertainment a couple of times a week. They have restaurant style dining and good food. They have had no Covid outbreaks, anyone that tested positive has recovered.
