Independent Living Reviews for Brookdale Clear Lake

I visited this facility

Brookdale Clear Lake is a very nice place; however, it is not completely enclosed. The hallways are covered, but they're open on the ends. The rooms are very nice. We looked at 1-bedroom apartment and it was very nice. They have activities going on there. They have a nice dining room. When we visited the dining room happy hour was happening and people were up and about with their glasses of wine. It seemed very nice in that respect. They have a van that takes folks to a grocery store a couple of times of week. They have nice amenities as far as that goes. However, it is a little too far away for us. It is further than we would like. The staff who assisted me was very nice.

My mother moved into Brookdale. The location is fantastic. It's three miles from me, right across the street from a mall and near plenty of places to go for shopping. She's adjusting quite well, eating well, and participating in almost all activities they offer. The size of the home is perfect for her. She's in a small one-bedroom apartment with a kitchen, and her room is overlooking a lagoon courtyard with a waterfall and koi pond. It's very resort-like. She has physical therapy, occupational therapy, and a home health sees her. They've been working on some repairs, and it needs a little bit of updating in the community room and dining room. Their food is excellent, I go and eat with her all the time, and it's like going to the restaurant.

Brookdale Clear Lake was excellent. The staff was very knowledgeable, and the residents all seemed to be very happy. A lot of them were socializing. They had a common area where everybody seemed to be happy. They were able to go outside, and there were people sitting outside. They had a nice swimming pool. The studio apartment was very nice and very updated as they had just remodeled it. The bathroom was large. Everything was very nice. However, they did not offer dog walking and that was the reason why we could not use that facility.

Brookdale is about 3 stories high, and the rooms are very nice and ample. However, we didn’t like that you had to walk outside and get on the elevator to eat, unless you’re on the first floor. They were doing board games when we went there. The dining area looked fine, with ample room, and seated 4 to a table.

Brookdale Clear Lake was a newer, well-kept facility but did not have character. The rooms were smaller. The surrounding was clean and felt like a hotel. The people working there were professional and long-term employees.

Brookdale has nice rooms, but the laundry room is in a different hall and less private. They have everything. The dining room is lovely with food prepared by a chef, but I can’t afford the cost. They have a lot of people in walkers, and it’s located in a congested place.

The Brookdale was just too large of a facility. The services, the staff, and everything else seemed very nice, but the physical layout just didn’t seem to be a good fit for my mother.

My mother-in-law is at Brookdale Clear Lake. She's been there going on her fourth week now and so far the staff are excellent. Everybody is very helpful. They have lots of activities like they have tours and they take them to different places to eat. They have exercise classes as well. To me, the place is like a resort.

We've already got my parents in Brookdale Clear Lake. We liked the staff and the location. They are very friendly, and it is good food. They have the same thing every Monday and the same thing every Tuesday. The room is nice and laid out well, but it is pretty small. They have larger ones, but those are more expensive, so they had to get what they can afford.

My father is in Brookdale Clear Lake (Formerly The Terrace at Clear Lake), and he has been doing pretty well. He is enjoying it, and he likes it a lot. The meals are wonderful, very balanced, and delicious. They have many amenities like going out for shopping, church, bingo, dominos, movies, parties, lots of handcraft lessons, and yoga, and they have two dining rooms. The personnel was very nice and was very helpful every moment we asked for help.

It had the most beautiful pool. It also had big bushes of flowers and flowering trees on the property. Their food was very good. Brookdale Clear Lake (Formerly The Terrace at Clear Lake) would've been my second choice. They had everything that I like. The room opened outdoors, and I like that the best. I like the indoor halls, the director, and the food there. It was a quality place.

Brookdale Clear Lake had the setup that was right for mom. Mom really needed an area where food was available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner because she is not cooking very much on her own. And she didn't really like the assisted living feel. In fact, she feels like she is the youngest one there; she just doesn't see herself as an old person. The staff is very positive. In fact, their positive nature helps mom stay positive as well. It is just generally a very positive community. Their rooms and apartment are great and very clean. Mom's been fussing over the weather stripping on the bottom of her front door, and they've come out, budged at it four times until they found the molding that was right for the door, and that it wasn't too tight or too loose to open and shut the door. So their attention to what she needs is important. It is not only securing the door but that she can open and shut it under her own power, and I think that it is very considerate of them. And my mom has a dog, and her favorite thing is to go out to the little dog park in the back and hang out with the other dog owners.

I visited Brookdale Clear Lake very briefly so I don't know enough about the staff. I felt the rooms were very nice. I prefer a place that has a living area and a bedroom. As far as I can tell the staff was helpful, but I didn't interact with them very much. I can't say much about the food, but they did offer what looks like to be a nice menu. They took people out to shop, and they had a little putting green for the golfers. I don't know for sure, but I believe they have various other kinds of musical activities and shows. I like the general setup of the housing which is several stories in one building.

The staff at The Terrace was very helpful. Out of all that I saw, they were the best, and I visited 3 different places. They had 2 dining rooms: one that was a la carte and one that was like a snack bar. Both of them looked very satisfactory. The Terrace is almost luxury.

The people at The terrace seemed friendly. I liked the landscaping and the waterfall. I didn’t like the apartments though, they seemed a little dated but other than that the facility was fine. I loved the dining room. It looked like a nice place for my parents to live. They had bowling, Bingo and a hair salon.

I had visited The Terrace. They serve two meals a day but they do not have food on the weekends, which they could have for people who do not cook. But the rooms had a microwave and refrigerator. They were not large, but comfortable. The rooms on the lower floor had outdoor access and they were allowed to have pet. I love it that they allowed pets because they were important to people who were older. They had a lot of activities like group games, music and movies. They had transportation, which I called the limousine that would take them to doctor's appointments, shopping malls and groceries. They had beauty salon on board, but if they wanted it outside, they could.

We toured The Terrace and we liked it. The staff was very efficient and pleasant. We liked the apartments, they were very nice and they were remodeling. There were lots of grounds and we liked the fact that there was a library, a movie theater and of course a game room. There were several rooms to entertain if you have family or friends over. The food that we had was good and very tasty. A lot of the residents were friendly. I wasn't very fond of the fact that there were no washer and dryer in your room; you have to use the public unit.

It was built like a hotel. The room we saw was small and had one closet. When you walked into the hallways, it smelled like cigarettes and it was bad. I didn't like it at all. The staff I talked to had an attitude.

The Terrace - Clear Lake is a very beautiful facility. The staff were being friendly and very helpful. I just like everything about it. The rooms are very, very nice. I did not eat anything, but I knew that they were having breakfast and lunch and I liked that. I really can't remember the activities, but I know they go on some trips and they will take the residents shopping or to the grocery store. They have a doctor on-call. They also have a church.

Beautiful facility with plenty of activities. Lack of food choices. The staff is dedicated and caring. Not enough elevators in case of an emergency. Lack of diversity. The light to get into and out of the facility is very short and dangerous.

The Terrace at Clear Lake is in an excellent location very near the freeway but hidden off the main road in a extremely safe location near to every amenity you could ask for. It has a very nice pool (only drawback is that it is not handicapped enabled). The staff is one hundred percent willing to do what it takes to make sure clients are well cared for at any time day or night. They have a wheel chair accessible van that makes regular trips as well as special event trips. One drawback is that rent increases on a regular basis.The building is kept in great condition and the grounds are very pretty. The residents as a whole are happy with the Terrace.There is a nice selection of apartments that posses showers that are truly nice wheelchair enabled showers, very large and spacious. Full sized fridge and stove with oven as well as a handicapped enabled laundry room. Multiple located emergency buttons make it extra safe for your loved one as well as gated entrances and exits. Meals are provided with an optional buy in plan in a beautiful eating hall. Bonus is that the location is within a couple of miles of one of the best hospitals in the Houston area.

I have visited this facility a few times. This is the place that was best suited for my father in law. It has all the amenities of a home. He is well looked after. He is provided with great food and great entertainment. The living arrangements afforded to him are of a high quality. It is a great environment for people who need a little assistance to get along in life. The staff is very helpful. We know that he is safe and well taken care of. He has become more social because of the activities available to him. And because of the great location he is close to one of the very best care facilities available in the country. I hope that this is something that will be available to me when I am in need of additional assistance.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and was impressed with the facility. My current situation with an oversized dog prevents me move at this time. But, I am definitely sold on the idea of The Terrace being my new home in the future when other arrangements have been made for my support animal.

The Terrace at Clear Lake is somewhat unique in that is allows seniors to live independently, but with assistance. What I notice about The Terrace is how clean and well maintained everything is. From the time you drive in th main entrance until the time you leave, you will see staff everywhere taking care of things. The parking lot and grounds are taken care of and offer the residents nice areas to enjoy the outdoors. Once inside, staff are unobtrusively cleaning, taking care of plants, etc. The other thing I really like about The Terrace is its location. Within a mile or two there are over twenty restuarants, a community park, many shops and even Baybrook Mall. so if you want to go and pick up your loved one and take them shopping or out for a meal, everything you want is available with a very short drive.
