I visited this facility

We visited Elmcroft, and it was quite nice, very clean, and very friendly. Their grounds were well-landscaped. and the staff was very nice and very friendly. Their dining area and menu looked very good.

I visited this facility

Had my mother decided to come to Houston, Elmcroft is where I would like to see her be. It was a beautiful place. Everybody there seemed happy; all the people who I saw seemed very happy. The young lady who is the community relations director, Jill, was just fabulous. Took her time, showed me everything and answered every question. I really, really liked it, but the decision was made that my mom would stay in the Dallas area where most of the family is. I visited a number of places and I liked this one very, very much.

I visited this facility

Elmcroft got rid of their smoking area at the first of the year and my brother smokes. If they had a smoking area, I would most definitely move him in a heartbeat. They have good rooms. The only thing that they don't do is provide a bed. They do not provide a dresser. I would have to pay extra for my brother. The staff was wonderful. The lady who was there was very, very knowledgeable of Huntington's, and she gave me a lot of information that I had no way of knowing. My girlfriend and I went together, and we were very, very impressed with the facility and everything that they had to offer. She showed me the different activities. They go on field trips, and the bus takes them to and from the VA for their doctor's appointments. I like the cleanliness of the place, the way they had their patients dressed. There was no smell. It was carpeted. The rooms were nice, the refrigerator was nice. The only thing that I didn't really care for was him being in the room with an actual roommate. I don't think that he would do well. It's close by a lot of facilities. It's a big, huge Target there. There are different eating places that are close by. It's a fiesta right there. It will be a better environment.

We have my dad at Elmcroft of Braeswood because it's very nice, it is low cost and it is close to me. My first impression of this place is that it was very nice. It was nicer than anything I had my dad in. The facility is a good fit for him. My dad is in a shared room. With regards to the staff's work ethic, they haven't done anything that I opposed of. They do take care of him there. On Veteran's Day, they made a big deal about him being a Veteran and it was very impressive. They also do all kinds of activities there. They take him fishing, they go to Wal-Mart, they go to different things around town, etc. They have lots of activities. They also have a guy that plays with a band that comes in on Friday nights. They can all sit and listen to him. It is just nice. They cook good food too. My dad likes the food. The dining room is beautiful. It is set up like a restaurant. They have a choice of foods and it is served restaurant style. It is very nice.

I am a family member of two current residents. The quality of services rendered to my great uncle and aunt have been excellent. The caretakers treat my uncle and aunt as family with a level of care that puts me at ease. I take comfort in knowing that my folaks are in good hands.

Wonderful assisted living facility! It's a small facility so residents and staff know each other. My parents have a 3-room apartment using the furniture from their home. 24 hour care is available and health is monitored well. My parents have not had to go to hospital since they moved to Elmcroft. It's a pleasant facility with lots of windows!

I write these comments as the husband of my wife, a resident of Elmcroft. On my daily visits, I consider Elmcroft well administered and compassionate in its service. The staff provides services in a timely and compassionate manner. I am well pleased and I state this as a former case worker and supervisor who has visited many care facilities.
