    I chose this community because it was a smaller community in a house. So more one on one care. He is bed bound so there isn't much he can actually do. So he loves food and visits from friends. The food could use some improving and they are trying to accommodate him as best as they can. It stays clean and there is no smells. I would recommend this place.

  • Very clean, very attentive and very caring

    They did an excellent job the week my father was there. They were very clean, very attentive and very caring. There is another lady there that we visited with some and I don't think they have many activities from what I heard, so they might try to improve that. They went through a lot of trouble to prepare my father's food, since he was on a special diet, which we appreciated and we felt he was always kept very clean while he was there.

    My brother who is a doctor has terminal illness and he was staying in one of the 5 star nursing home in Austin,Tx. The staffing is not there for his needs. We are looking for a small place that can meet his needs. We found South Austin Assisted Living! It's a residential assisted living. The owners are knowledgeable with what they are doing the fact that they are both in medical field. A retired. ICU nurse and a retired physician. My bother passed away with the best care he deserves from the owner and caring staff. They knew he is not gonna last long but they took him not for the money but a resting peaceful last few days of his life. I cannot say more. Their price is reasonable for the care they rendered.
