Customer Reviews

For healthy senior living only

Our mom lived here for nearly five years. The first 1.5 years were good, but after local management turnover, things changed for the worse. Prescription management and security (jewelry stolen) were the first major issues. Never had one fire drill during her total tenure here. As long as your resident is reasonably independent, and in good health, this place is OK; but as dementia progressed and additional support required, professional care services fell below our expectation (and their promise) for these paid services. There are a handful of caregivers here who are wonderful and caring; treating our mom as their own to the last day. The rest were clock punchers. During the years we initiated regular reviews with their management resulting in no positive change. We realized then that the less than compassionate attitudes came from top down, including the president and corporate officers. Why did we stay? Honestly the location proximity to our homes was a major factor allowing us to personally oversee her care, and our concern of introducing change to mom. We had to install CCTV in her room just so we could tell if she had fallen. When mom’s PCP and HH finally recommended memory care, we moved her away despite Bethesda having a separate memory care unit but it was managed by the same inept people. Moved to a new facility and she is now showing real signs of improvement in just one week.

Saving Time

We had a main goal to pick a better and convenient community. I called to see if they were a fit to tour. They were not as close as I had hoped and we found a closer community to the family so we decided to not continue with the tour.The information I got from them was helpful.

A nice community for care

The care at this community is good. The care from the staff is outstanding. I like the menu is appealing and she has been pleased with the good variety. The staff try and keep her active with the other residents. I would recommend the care and the value to be what we're looking for

Comfort for dad!!

My father is doing really well, he is adjusting and the staff has been very helpful. The facility is clean and organized. What we liked most about this place while choosing was the availability and price. Also, we liked the fact that it is all on one floor, so we don't have to worry about stairs.

Point system pricing and facility-like layout

Bethesda Gardens was nice but there were a lot of rather long hallways. I felt it was too impersonal. They also operated off of a point system for care. So you didn't know exactly what the price would be. I wasn't impressed with the person in intake.

Very nice community!!

During our tour I had noticed how clean and well maintained the building was and I was very impressed. They had a spacious floor plan and a great dinning hall area for the residents. The only issue that my parents had noticed was the rooms where way to small and they where way too far from the dinning room as well as activity center

Wonderful Community!

Our loved one's are doing great at the community Bethesda Gardens Fort Worth. They are enjoying the variety of options available to them at meals. They have lots of activities for them to enjoy. The staff are very easy to work with and helpful.

eliminated - not what we are looking for

A little Expensive

This community worked out very well for us I do feel they are doing a good job of caring for my mother. We had one issue with the cleaning, but they did quickly resolve it. The staff is friendly and welling to listen to your concerns. There are good activities like travel trips work out classes so they keep the residents busy. I would say the food is good. It is a little expensive, but I would recommend it this is a nice community.

Nice place, overall!

We're very pleased with how things have gone at Bethesda Gardens, I'd give them high marks across the board. It's a nice looking place, and although the move-in was a bit rocky my parents seem to have settled in well. The people here are friendly and professional, and while I do think some of their admin processes leave a little to be desired, overall it is a very nice place.

Bethesda Gardens Memory Care

Bethesda Gardens Memory Care Facility is a wonderful place for my mother. Would highly recommend

They didn't do anything they promised me they were going to do.

I was not happy with them. They didn't do anything they promised me they were going to do. They didn't keep up with my care, or the care of my dog. They had a bad attitude, I would call for help, and they would say that they were busy. The management was really nice and talked it all up, but when it came to the staff, they wouldn't do the work, or if they would, they would have a really bad attitude. I chose them because they said they could do all the things that I asked about. The laundry and the housekeeping was okay, but the rest of it was awful. They didn't have a schedule to keep, nobody knew what to do when, and the same person never came to help. The residents were offering to help me, more than the staff.

Bethesda is the best

We looked at 4 facilities and decided on Bethesda Gardens. After 6 weeks, we do not regret the decision. The staff is attentive, the food is fabulous and our mother is very happy.

All the people at Bethesda have been wonderful in helping my mother in law become part of their community. They have answered endless questions from us and my father in law and helped ease our transition.

Review of Bethesda Gardens Alzheimer's / Memory Care in Fort Worth, TX

very clean. seemed pricey. not a big complex. no physician on staff , not able to have them take u on errands. have to eat at scheduled meal times. staff friendly, residents appeared happy. small rooms. staff ratio is 15-1

Placement occurred 2 weeks ago, so no...

Placement occurred 2 weeks ago, so not a lot to report. The Community is very clean and does not smell. Still trying to work out some kinks as staff gets to know husband. Food could be better. Did report problem with food one day to Director. They seem to care about the individuals & try to accommodate. This is just a very tough job. I looked at several communities and choose this one because of private room & bath and cleaniness.
I am still doubting my decision for placement, but I understand this is normal for spouse. This is a memory care facility & I feel my husband is not on same level (not a progressed with disease) . Wondering if I should have waited on placement. Maybe I should have visited several more times, I did visit 3 times at different times of day, but you need to see activities and meal time.

Nice place, overall

My loved one hasn't been here long, and is having a difficult time settling in, but I think the staff of Bethesda Gardens are doing the best they can with the situation. The staff are all very caring, patient, and professional, and they've been very accommodating. The maintenance staff in particular have been quick to resolve any issues we bring up.

A Bright and Warm Solution

Bethesda Gardens is a bright and homey living option. We enjoy the personal service, the maintenance, and the convenience of the building layout. The halls are warm and bright,and the apartments have much natural light with lovely natural views.

Everything has been excellent.

Everything has been excellent. I think their pricing is very good. They are quick to take care of any needs and concerns. They have weekly and daily activities. On weekends the parking can be a little difficult, because this is when everyone is visiting. The food is great, we really don't have any complaints.

Not Enough Assistance

She was there for three years, but that is where she got the really bad UTI, and fell and went to the hospital.
It just wasn't enough assistance. It is difficult to find a place that they really takes care of them!


I toured Bethesda Gardens Assisted Living in Ft. Worth, Texas. I was very impressed. They handle everything for you. The food was good, the facility was beautifully furnished and comfortable. Lots of activities, beauty shop, personal bank. They send an aide with your loved one to the doctor and furnish transportation. She loves her new apt. and cannot believe everything is done for her. Consequently, she is doing way better than her original assessment by the hospital! That's what happens when people thrive and are happy. Glad I listened to my senior advisor, who encouraged me and explained things to me. I could not have placed my Mom without her.

Wonderful place.

2/29/12 visit - The director is daughter of a co-worker of mine - just discovred today. Location is straight down Granbury Rd from work (TCU) Lower prices available here; non-profit puts excess money back in improvements and supports charity. Very little turnover in staff. Bright and cheerful. Room wing hallways have very high ceilings with windows high on wall. Dining room is very large and near entrance; restaurant-like in apperance. Basic static menu with one special on lunch menu. Asked about staff to resident ratio and response was that this is an artificial indicator of service.

Love, love, love this facility. Their concept is wonderful.
