I visited this facility

Emeritus at Champion was an older establishment, and the area there was high crime. The age doesn't bother me, but their rooms were so small. They were not really large enough for two people. I was thinking about putting my husband by himself with another man because it was expensive. However, it didn't look that sanitary for two people to be in one room. The closet seemed to be OK. There was only room for one recliner in the middle for one resident to sit in to watch the television, and I don't know what the other resident would do to watch the television. It just looked uncomfortable. However, the staff was outstanding. Everyone was very nice. The people were great. The man who took me through, he was extra nice. I certainly like him. He was very professional, friendly, and very kind. We ate at Emeritus at Champion. The food was fine. They did have activities, but we were never interested in those because the doctor told me that my husband has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, and he said that activities were not going to do him any good.

One of the agencies I called gave me Emeritus at Champion. I like the facility a lot, it's just that they wouldn't accept my brother because at that time, he needed a lot of help. The staff who took me on a tour was excellent; they were really good. I really wanted my brother to go to that place. Their rooms were really good and I like their walk-in showers. I also like their dining rom. I was able to see their menu and it looked good.

I went to Emeritus at Champion and it was just exactly what I would like it to be, but it was more expensive than what I could afford. I thought the rooms were small to be shared by two people, and I would prefer not to have a roommate because I had a cat and a dog. The bathroom was also shared and that was something I did not want to spend the rest of my life with. They had all kinds of activities and classes. There was a library and a place where the residents could gather and watch television. There were art class, physical therapy and just everything that seniors needed and wanted. They had something to keep the residents busy and it was pretty well-rounded. I was quite impressed with the dining room because it was very clean and they had good meals. The staff were very caring people and I really liked them.

Emeritus at Champion costs only $2,400 a month and it includes everything. The people there were wonderful. Everybody there was friendly. It was not a new place, but the apartments were very nice. It was not a huge place, but it was spacious. It had an atrium at the middle where you could walk. They had activities like cards and games. They had a huge dining room. I didn't eat there, but the people who lived there told me that the food was good.

My mom is doing fine in Emeritus at Champion. We like it best because the price is just right. My mom has been to several places and so far, it is working out okay with this one. They have a very nice staff. The room that she has is nice and accommodating. Food is good. We have no complaints from her. Overall, they are doing a good job.

The staff at Emeritus at Champion seemed very friendly and very helpful when I visited the place. It's the place where I would like to put my mom if only we could afford it. I like the cleanliness of the place. I like the fact that they interact with their patients. They get them out of their rooms and get them to participate. They are proactive. My only problem is that the room they would put her would be much, much smaller and she can't bring her dog.

My mom has been living in this facility now for almost five years. My mom was a very active person and she was always the one who took care of everyone, until five years ago, when she had her stroke. It was such a shock to all of our family. The staff seemed to be so friendly and the overall conditions of the rooms were great.

I visited this facility

It was the only one that contacted me back first, and the only one that I'd been able to find so far up in on the North side of Houston that truly takes medicaid. I guess they save like 20 or 30 percent of their rooms for medicaid recepients. I like that my mother is eligible to go there and that it has pet eligibility. She can bring her pet which would do wonders for her being able to have her pet back. The staff was very pleasant and very welcoming. Two or three of the residents there actually wheeled over to me in their wheelchairs and just took the time and said how happy they were there. They were very complimentary of the facility, saying that it was a great place. One of them have been there for 5 years and the other for 3 years. It's just that Emeritus at Champion was a little older facility, looking about 15 years old. It had never been renovated or updated really. Also the location of it - there's no access from that facility for my mother on her electric wheelchair. It's kind of out there in the middle of nowhere. Where she can't utilize that to go to any stores next door or down within a block. It's mile and miles before you could even get anywhere and it's just on a 2-lane road with no sidewalks. So basically she's confined there and at that point I was looking for a place that had more independence to her mobility. There is no external wheelchair accessibility whatsoever.

My parents and I visited my Aunt who has been living in this facility now for almost five years. My aunt was a very active person and she was always the one who took care of everyone, until five years ago, when she had her stroke. It was such a shock to all of our family. This was my mother's sister in law and they were very close. My uncle and his children had put my Aunt in this facility. When we visited her at the facility she was clean and seemed happy. Off course she can not speak with words, but she does get her point across in many non verbal skills. The staff seemed to be so friendly and every day my uncle goes and has lunch with his wife. My cousins have paid for the meal, but my uncle just thinks the staff is allowing him to eat one meal a day with his wife. I thought that really showed a lot of compassion for both my Aunt and Uncle.
