Reviews of Westminster Manor
I am/was a resident of this facility
I have lived at Westminster for over a year now. I am a planner, and I was drawn to Westminster because of its long term care and its central location convenient to downtown. I love the dance and Pilates classes here. I also look forward to visits from family, and I feel privileged that they are able to enjoy the best parts of my life at Westminster.

I have been living at Westminster Manor for four years. The staff are all very good and take good care of us. They do send someone to clean the room once a week. The food is all right, and they try to keep us busy with different activities. They have an inside movie place, and we are having a movie tonight.

Westminster Manor is an extremely nice place to retire, that is if you can afford to live there. I costs quite a bit, but if you can afford it, it is definitely worth at least a visit. It seems more like a four star hotel than a retirement home. The apartments are spacious and well decorated and furnished. I was extremely pleased with the staff that worked there. They were very kind and polite to me, and I have been receiving nothing put positive info about them from my father. The location is great, it is in a good part of town that is very close to my church and my home, and I never have to worry about my father when he is there. The meals there are great, and I have found myself visiting my father more and more because I know there is also a great dinner involved. There is a great courtyard that is sort of small, but a great place for seniors to sit and enjoy the outdoors while in a controlled and safe environment. If you can afford it, I would definitely take a visit and get your name put on the waiting list as soon as possible because they are always full and the waiting list is longer that any in the state.

The living facility with apartments is wonderful. Happy community of residents. The health care center, though, is horrible! Caretakers are below average for the industry, excuses are constantly given as to why your loved one is getting worse, is not bathed properly, is not being given correct doses of medicines, etc. etc. After our personal experience, I would never wish this health care facility on my worst enemy! Beware,,,,,,the fancy presentation about excellent longterm care is VERY deceptive. Caregivers prefer to ignore patients and their families until a crisis is discovered and then reported to management. Then more excuses are given to cover their obvious mistakes and horrible care of your loved one.Beware.
I visited this facility
My client's father lived at Westminster Manor and I provided physical therapy to him for about a year. Westminster is definitely a high-end, luxury assisted living community, and I would expect the price tag to be on the higher-end of the scale. The food is excellent and living areas are spacious and comfortable. The housing I personally saw was the 1-bedroom apartment, although I believe they also offer 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. Westminster residents don't need a car to visit downtown Austin. The community provides scheduled transportation to shopping, doctors' appointments, banks, and errands. When I was there, Westminster was in the process of building a new community center with auditorium, art studio, larger pool and library. I believe they were also building more exercise rooms. This community has a ton of programs for residents, including scheduled guest speakers, lots of exercise classes, and monthly day trips. This is a highly organized community that is very efficiently run. From what I have seen, they provide very good care to residents.
