Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale San Marcos South

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is at Brookdale now, and she is doing fine in this place. We visited quite a few, but we chose this one because she feels comfortable there. The best thing to say about this place is that they care about the residents, and there is not much turn over.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

We needed to find a place for my grandmother to stay after my grand father passed away. We knew of Emeritus due to its location next to Central Texas Medical Center. When we visited the facility we knew right away that this place would suit grand mother well. The staff was nice and let us see what there facility was like. We were able to get a room within a week and had grand ma moved in. The place also provides transportation for grandma so she was able to get to her appointments on her own. we are able to visit grandma and the place has the feel of an apartment. Since the place is located next to a hospital we have the relief to know that emergency care is seconds away. I would highly recommend this place to others that are in need of an assisted living facility for their loved ones. The place is also located close to our home so we can be on location in minutes if grandma wants to visit with us or she wants to come over to our house for dinner.
