The Farrington at Tanglewood in Houston, TX
5.0

The Farrington is a great place for Mom. She moved here from Colorado and could not be happier. [name removed] and all of the staff were so helpful in this long distance move. The facilities are very nice and Mom loves watching the birds at the half dozen feeders in the garden area in the back. A full slate of activities rounds out the careful and caring manner in which the residents are treated. Give the Farrington the highest recommendation.

Brookdale Memorial City in Houston, TX
3.5

This is a good place to live at for senior living and people that need more assistance. Everyone here needs some sort of assistance getting around. It is nice, the food is not the greatest. The advertisement is kind of false. It states that the meals are included but on the weekend there are only 2 meals the other residents are a little older so its hard for me to find things in common . I plan to move soon.

Holiday Copperfield Estates in Houston, TX
2.7

I think the apartments are nice. They seem to be sufficiently sized. I wish there was a small stove or something so my loved one could cook some things for herself. But I understand why they don't have those, perhaps due to risk. I like that someone comes in and cleans the apartment once a week - that has been a positive. The one real negative is the staff are not very visible or available. If I have a question or seek them out, they do respond. But they don't seem up and actively involved in the community - they just kind of stay in their offices.
