Assisted Living Reviews for The Etta at Shavano Park

February 19, 2021

By Rhonda H

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

The Etta has had some transitional issues but the new Executive Director and management have certainly my turned things around. This is a great facility with beautiful grounds. The new staff along with some older favorite staff are doing a great job of caring for my aunt.

I visited this facility

We took a tour of The Etta at Shavano Park. It's really good, and they're really attentive. They went above and beyond for us. They do assisted living, Alzheimer's, and they take care of your pills if you need it. The room size is good enough. It has its own little bed area and a small kitchen. It's like a suite in a hotel. The facilities are good. I was just expecting more outdoor space, but overall it's enough. I would prefer a little more space for them to walk around outside. COVID was already hitting when I took the tour, so they couldn't allow me inside the space. I was able to look at a specific room from the outside, but not come in or see the community in action. They opened the door and let me look inside the dining area, but not walk into it. It looked like a little restaurant; it had its own area where they serve the food, and it was nice. I looked at two or three places, but they were definitely the most attentive. I enjoyed the tour. I felt comfortable leaving my mother there. The staff member during the tour went above and beyond. We're from Puerto Rico, and she found typical Puerto Rican food and gave my mother a gift. She was really good.

My mom has been a resident at The Etta at Shavano Park for three years. My sister or I visit her every day and find the care to be excellent. The staff really enjoys caring for older people which means so much to my family. My mom attends exercise classes daily and the Bible studies that are offered weekly.

I thought that it was a really good place. It was very clean and the people were very friendly and they really tried to help. The dining room was pretty good and the people there seemed to like it. They have a library and an area for different things, there were also cozy-looking areas with couches where people can sit.

I saw the rooms at Brookdale Shavano Park were spacious and nice. The downside was that their refrigerators were not full; they were a smaller version. The staff was very friendly, and the residents seem to be happy.

It was a little bit smaller, it’s close to me, and I liked it. I liked all the people there. I liked when they have music. The food was really very good.

I visited this facility

It seemed clean and really nice. I liked the layout for memory care and all of the activities going on, like art. I liked the small kitchen setting where they allowed them to help with either baking or cooking and doing everyday things. They also had a very nice courtyard area where the residents can be outside and dig in the dirt. I liked the way that complex was laid out also because they had the ability to transfer from assisted to memory care within the same facility.

I visited this facility

I went for my mother. It was very nice and looked like a new facility. There were a few staff members there who were very friendly and very nice. The atmosphere felt very relaxed. A lot of people there said it felt like they’re at home. It really looked comfortable. I saw two rooms, one empty and another one with somebody living there, that were well kept, clean, and didn’t have any strange odors. At that time, some of the seniors were working with puzzles.

They have been wonderful. I know they have bingo because my mother likes to participate in it. She has been there for a month now. It is neat, clean, and pretty. They have a workout facility.

They are wonderful. They have been doing a very good job, and they are very patient. It is a very clean facility. My mother does not care for the food, but it seems fine. They have bingo, jewelry making, and cooking activities. They also have a happy hour every Friday afternoons. She has a one-bedroom apartment with a refrigerator and a microwave. It has a nice sized bathroom. I think the room is quite large. She has a queen sized bed, a recliner, a night stand, a chest, and a sofa.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother lived in this community for over 3 years in both the Assisted Living and Memory care buildings. There was never a time that I was worried or concerned about her safety and well being. The staff were always supportive, caring and loving in their approach with her as well as with our family. I found that there were plenty of activities going on, though she often times was not interested in doing them. The facility was clean, smelled good and the staff were always friendly. It felt good to walk into the place and be greeted with smiling faces from the staff and other residents.
