Our tour experience

Our family had an in person tour and it was so nice we wanting to get on the waiting list immediately, it was out top choice. However, we were working with a hospice nurse who said that The Delaney is a good community but because it is so large your loved one may get over looked. We also felt like they were not geared towards those who needed quite a bit of assistance.

Good place for loved ones

During the time our loved one was there we thought they did a great job. The community is very nice and very well kept and clean. The care was great and the staff were friendly. Unfortunately we were not able to eat the meals ourselves, but they have a chef and the meals looked really nice.

3 bad days

Don't believe anything they say on intake. During this process, they did not mention any evaluation and said they said that it was not an issue. Within 24 hours they wanted to send her to the hospital and wanted a psychological evaluation and would not let her come back. They only refunded half of the deposit for only less than 48 hours of care. I would not recommend this community to anyone.

I would recommend The Delaney

We chose The Delaney because it has independent living, assisted living, and memory care all in one building. The apartment sizes here are good for what she needs. Overall, I would recommend them to others looking.

Longer term care exceeded our expectations, it was as good as it comes

My wife was in long term care, and they worked extremely well with us. This was one of the best decision we could of made. Being in assisted living myself I was able to go visit my loved one whenever i wanted. The people were extremely friendly, they became family after awhile. The meals for long term were costumed to each persons diets which was really nice. They also had games, birthday parties and Christmas parties. Now assisted living was still good but wasn't really anything special. They did keep it clean but we though they could of done a better job with the meals.

[name removed] was very helpful, and did an interview with me and my sister. This facility was too pricey for mom and [name removed].

Great community

The people at the community were really nice and they made a lot of good friends. The restaurant staff were really friendly and helpful to them. The community was real clean and most of the staff were super friendly but some not so much. Overall, we chose this community because it was nice and clean we thought they would be best taken care of there over the others that we looked at. I would recommend this community to other families.

y wife has been in Memory care exactly 90 days - fantastic improvement since being in the The Delaney! I have been in Assistance Living there 60 days. Wanted to be near my wife and no space available in the Independent part of The Delaney. Yet to meet an employee that was not more than willing to do whatever was needed to assist the residence. I also have the sense management wants to continue to improve the facility for the residences - they want to be the very Complete Retirement Facility available.

My The Delaney at Lake Waco eperience

Super place! Few little things could be better and more reliable. People are very good, especially those providing services to the residences. Some of contracted services are unreliable.

Great place for mom

We think it’s the best place in Waco. The level of care is superb and gives us peace of mind 24/7.

Impolite Management

I recently helped moved our Friend's Father into the Delaney. The Location is great and his room has a pretty good view of Lake Waco. However, the Management on duty the day of the move was discourteous. Couldn't believe it. Word to Upper Management, better train the local Management team! Our Friends also said they had issues with Management on setting up the meals, they wanted to spend more money, but staff was inconsiderate of them. Your only as good as your Management, Delaney!!!

[Removed] and I had a nice tour. The Delaney is a high-rise facility and it feels like living in a hotel, in a way. Brand new building and beautiful grounds and views of Lake Waco. I would recommend a tour to those looking for assisted and independent living.

My first choice if I can afford it. Next step is to check my finances and get my house in Dallas ready for sale.

We had a very nice tour of this still under construction facility. It is very impressive and will be beautiful when finished. We looked at three different apartments single bedroom, smaller two bedroom and larger two bedroom. They are nice, but gave us a feeling of being too small. They have beautiful kitchens, but then have a large fee for meals that are provided. We felt that this place would be too extravagant for us because we like a simpler lifestyle. is kind of like moving into a large resort hotel. A no go for us.
