We visited the Barton Hills Assisted Living facility while searching for a place for my brother's friend in the Austin area. We immediately noticed the beautiful outside grounds that were very nicely maintained. The patio is used for socializing and dining, with openings into the grounds featuring many walking paths. Residents may also tend the lovely gardens.
The foyer was fresh and bright with very nice decorations and furniture and the staff was very welcoming. All of the indoor rooms had plenty of fresh air and light. Each room was beautifully decorated and furnished. The colors throughout the building were soothing and comfortable.
Communal activity rooms were spacious, with comfortable furniture. The seniors can easily socialize, make crafts, play games, watch TV and films and participate in many stimulating activities.
Seniors can use the exercise room at any time and also go on daily walks. Aerobics and yoga classes are offered. The residents go on trips to visit the many art galleries and museums, eat at casual and fine restaurants and enjoy the many cultural events offered in Austin.
The private rooms featured plenty of space in nicely decorated surroundings. All had a great deal of natural light and fresh air with very comfortable furniture.
The dining room was quite nice, with plenty of space. The food we saw looked and smelled delicious. The menus all had healthy food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them.
We especially liked that focus on helping the seniors to enhance current skills, while cultivating new interests. The recreational and educational activities provide an opportunity for personal, as well as spiritual growth.
The residents here looked very content in their living environment and were well cared for by kind and considerate staff.
