The rooms were nice at Garden Estates. They just do not have enough help. We had eaten a few meals with my mother-in-law there, and they had good food. The dining room was nice. They had activities like watching movies, card games, and jigsaw puzzles. They also went to different places.

My mother lives in Garden Estates, and when they first moved in, she was for rehab but they needed to be in assisted living. They insisted that they have two baths. Dad also used to live there, and they have a studio apartment. They put a door in the wall to make it two bedrooms, and they also have two kitchens. My father was an avid cook, so he continued to cook, and my mother says stay out of my kitchen because I’m not cooking anymore.

My father died last May at the facility, and the care that we received is simply indescribable. He was so loved by the staff and management. They have bingo, outings, church services, exercise classes, card games, and weekly entertainment. They celebrate all the holidays and birthdays.

My only issue is the medication management needs a lot to be desired. I would recommend it, but I would tell them about medication management.

I really like Garden Estates, but my mom is not ready yet to move to a facility. It looks really clean and it didn’t smell. The staff as well as the residents were friendly. The residents were recommending the place to us and they were telling us that they are comfortable there. They have little apartments with a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a little kitchen. The room was so close to the lobby that my mother would not have to walk to the long hall if we have moved her in there.

Garden Estates was very nice. The food was good. The staff was very nice, very helpful and very friendly. Environment was good. It was a possibility for my father but it was not what we need for my mother because they didn't have a locked unit for her. She has to be in a secured environment.

Garden Estates is not that not expensive but it didn’t appeal to us that much. It was like a nursing home. It was smaller. They were nice and friendly. The dining area looked fine. The residents were less active, less energetic and less enthusiastic.

Recently we toured Garden Estates as possible assisted living site for my step-mother who recently had surgery for a broken knee. We were overwhelmed by the excellent facilities and staff. A room was completely refreshed and refurnished and selected in the perfect location for access to the dining area and very attractive activity rooms. My wife and I are very optimistic about the future care and social life for this long time resident of Corpus Christi. My mother-in-law's reaction was very positive and led to an easy transition from her home of 46 years. She hopes to recover from her knee surgery and be able to return home, but we feel very comfortable that she will be able to adjust to and enjoy Garden Estates as her new home for as long as is necessary. We deeply appreciated the attention to details and thorough review of the facilities and care givers provided by Gae, the Director of Sales and Marketing!

I also visited Garden Estates, and I liked them as well. The staff was excellent and upbeat. The director was wonderful. What I liked about it was that it had assisted living and nursing in the same building. They were just across from each other. I would highly recommend it.

We went to Garden Estate, and it was fine as well. It was very clean with a nice layout. The staff was very helpful and nice. The tour that we had there wasn't quite as expensive. The apartments also had nice layout, but I had to go back to search for some of the rooms the guide overlooked, probably because the person who toured us was not the normal person who does the tours. We saw some of the activities they were doing. We were there during mealtime, but were not offered a meal. The dining area didn't look very inviting because it was dark. It reminded me more of a school cafeteria than a dining room

Provider Response

Thank you for your post! We value your opinion as we strive daily to improve the care of our residents, staff, and family members as well as the experiences for those guests that visit our community. I also want to thank you for taking time out of your day to come visit our community, and I am glad to hear that you had positive experiences with our staff and that you liked the layouts of the rooms that you toured.

However, I am sorry to hear that your total tour experience wasn’t to the standards that we expect here at Garden Estates. Anytime a visitor is toured around the community you should always be given the opportunity to view a variety of floor plans for any of the vacant apartments we might have, and I will take this feedback to my team and ensure that every member understands the proper procedures for these types of situations. Our team is trained with the ultimate expectation that our visitors should get the same personalized tour experience with each of us, so there is no confusion.

In addition to the above, it is another goal of ours to offer a lunch or dinner experience to those visiting, so you are able to get a more complete feel for the atmosphere of what community life is here at Garden Estates. I am a firm believer that the dining experience is of utmost importance when making a decision on a loved one's future home. And for that I would like to extend my personal invitation to join me for a lunch or dinner meal in our dining room. Hopefully, that will allow you to experience the warmth of our dining room, while also enjoying a nice meal. You may reach me at 361.980.8200 to arrange a time that is conducive to your schedule.

Once again, I want to express my appreciation for your feedback, as I am a believer that you can't get better without knowing how you are viewed by others.

My mother already knew some people that live at Garden Estates of Corpus Christi that's why we chose this one. Garden Estates has many wings so when we saw this one wing, that's fairly new, we like it. It's brighter, cheerier, and more decorated, whereas the other wings looked a little drab. A lot of facilities smell like urine but this one doesn't have any kind of odor to it. Mainly I think it's the staff that we were convinced with that would take good care of my mother. The staff seems to be very caring. They're great. When my mother had a lab appointment with her cardiologist and there was a problem with her insurance, they called me asking about her insurance. I don't think many facilities would do that, but they really care. I was very pleased with them. Also my mom is pleased with everything there. Her room is a big one-bedroom with a bathroom and it is just exactly what she needs. In order for her to get to the dining room, she has to go down three long hallways, so that she is getting more exercise now than she did at her apartment, so it's been good for her. Their food is warm and nutritious. She gets more food than she needs there. For activities, they have some things she enjoys. They have a game call money bingo and they have entertainment that would come in. Before Christmas, they had choirs that came in from different churches. The only thing we don't like is that they don't have any pastors come in with the Lutheran religion. What I like best about this facility is just the security and knowing that she's in a safe place and she is being cared for there. She's just in good hands.

I would recommend Garden Estates of Corpus Christi. This is an excellent facility. The facility is clean. They have transportation, activities, shopping trips, etc. They even have a hairdresser on property. Mom is a current resident there and their care is excellent. It is a very nice facility. I would recommend this place to friends and family.

The Garden Estates of Corpus Christi was nice. The staff was very helpful; she called me numerous times to see how things were going even though we weren't using their services. I thought their prices were very fair, they were way less than anywhere else in the country, and the place was clean.

My grandmother recently moved in here and so far we have been very disappointed with her care. She had a surgery that required pain medication for recovery. When the dosage was incorrect, they took it away from her and left her with NO medication until she could get a new prescription from the doctor. Really?! You're going to leave a post knee surgery senior with NO pain medication?? What kind of place is this?? This is only one of many issues we've had. My grandmother was already sad she wasn't able to live unassisted anymore. This place has NOT made the transition any better. She has fallen into even deeper depression. Thanks for everything Garden Estates.

Garden Estates has been a great place so far. Garden Estates is split literally done the middle. Half of the building is assisted living, and the other half is for retirement living; whose majority of the residents are retired military. The staff is great from what i have seen. There are recreational areas, arts and craft, and also gets frequented by performers for entertainment. The only downside is the food, from what Im told. It could be better.

We visited the Garden Estates Of Corpus Christi Assisted Living Community while out looking at facilities to consider for our aunt. We could tell as soon as we arrived that this is a well-tended place. The circular drive and carport looked more like a high end hotel than a place where seniors might live.

The staff was very caring and professional, explaining the entire process from start to finish.

The front area had fragrant fresh flowers and plenty of nice greenery, as did the back yard area. Residents are free to enjoy the area with supervision nearby. There were nice walkways and seating areas as well, where families and friends may gather.

The food was cooked to perfection. We got to see the main kitchen, where fresh bread was baking, and homemade soups were being made. They also make their own salad dressings. Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits are available at all times. The food at this facility rivals that of a 5 star hotel.

The communal rooms were all lovely and nicely decorated, with plenty of nice natural light -- which made for a cheery atmosphere. The residents all looked they were really content. The list of activities was comprehensive, from library to local outings, they do it all. They have regular socials where people come from the community, as well.

This facility had exceptional atmosphere, level of care and food -- everything a senior needs to live a vibrant and content life -- under the best circumstances possible.
