The Waterford at Baytown
4.5

We moved both our parents to the Waterford during the pandemic from a community that stop almost all services. The Waterford was still keeping their residents active within the community. They started in assisted living and were able to transitionr to memory care as their needs changed. It was great not to have to separate or uproot them again. The are well taken care of and the facility is well maintained.
