Assisted Living Reviews for Blue Skies of Texas

It I is older. It has been established for a number of years. I am familiar with the Village. I have friends over there. It's beyond my capability, as it is very pricey. Their charges for assisted living are in the range of $5,000 a month. It's an excellent facility. You have many privileges, and since they are military-connected, it's as if you never left the base. It's definitely a home for military people. I've always found the staff very accommodating. They have a referral list if the people in independent senior living want help in the apartment. They have lists of people you can call so that at a moment's notice, you can have any kind of service you want, which is something that most places don't do. I think Air Force Village I is one of the finest places.

Provider Response

We appreciate your feedback. You’re right, our community is full of tradition and has been a mainstay in San Antonio for the past 45 years. We’ve always been dedicated to providing amenities and services our residents desire and expect. The beauty of being a community with a life care option is that we offer a variety of living options and pricing plans, as well as a full continuum of care. We’ve recently expanded our eligibility beyond those with military backgrounds, so more area seniors can enjoy the lifestyle we offer. The next time you visit your friends, we invite you to have lunch with us and see if we have an option that might work for you. You might be pleasantly surprised after doing a cost comparison. Thanks again for your positive review of Blue Skies of Texas.

My dad was here for rehab. My dad would push his little buzzer, and they were there in less than a minute. They were running in the room to see what was going on. It was just awesome. The food -- you went out there and you had a choice. They had a main meal and a menu that you looked at. You got a hold of the menu and you got to see what the item was up for the day. If you didn't want it, then you had another menu that you could choose from what they would make for you to eat. The care there was just wonderful. The physical therapy was wonderful. The staff was like a family because they knew every patient's name, they knew our names, we knew all of their names, and all the patients learned each other's names. It was just an awesome place to be that we are trying to get him back to. My dad never complained about anything he ate; he loved everything he ate there. It was clean, and you were taken care of there. They had it gated, so that nobody can just leave the premises, which is nice. It's gated and the landscaping is nice; it's just a wonderful place.

Blue Skies was beautiful, but it was extremely expensive -- $5,000 a month. How many people have $5,000 a month? Not very many people. It was very nice. It was like a hotel. They had everything there. They have bingo, movies, and a library, and I think they had a beauty salon. Everybody was very informative, nice, and friendly.

I've gone to it several times. The staff were all really nice and friendly. We've had meetings there and I've been invited a lot over so that they could talk to us about different things. The rooms are very small. You don't make your own meals. You end up going down to the restaurant on the first floor and eat all your meals. I know you have to dress up or to be in decent clothes to have supper at the big dining room. But you can go to a cafeteria, too. You can wander around do what you want, but I just have more freedom and more space in my home. I like it because it's closer to town. I wanted to get into the new units that they built because it had more room and storage, but I don't have near enough money.

The staff was very friendly. But San Antonio gets hot in the summer.

I really liked the building. It is a highrise with 3 restaurants. The sky lounge on the 15th floor was for fancy dinners and Sunday brunch, it required formal attire. Then there was a restaurant on the first floor (like a TGIF or Chili's in style), and then another restaurant that was cafeteria style. There were nice work out amenities, a weekly newsletter was clipped to my dad's door with the weekly activities, if new people moved in, social events. I thought that the staff seemed a little burned out, maybe they are not paid enough to take care of all of these old people that can be a bit difficult at times. I think the pay should be higher in order to get better employees, but the rest of this facility was great. My dad bought 2 apartments, he knocked out the wall between the two and he has a larger, airer space. They are trying this new concept of combining 2 side by side apartments into one, and adding more modern amenities. I was really happy that this is where my dad moved to, it doesn't feel like an old folks home, it feels modern and hip, it has a lot of fun social activities, it offers them a reason to get dressed up and mingle. They all wore name tags whenever they were in the restaurant or when they leave their room - so it makes it easier for them to recognize each other. The restaurant had nice pastries that my dad could take up to his kitchenette. He likes a slice of cake at night. They also had a nice welcoming committee made up of the older, yet mentally there residents that could help my dad get involved with his new surroundings.
