Houston is one of the most livable and senior-friendly cities in Texas. It has a lot to offer retired residents, from ample recreation and shopping opportunities to historic parks and large open spaces that are perfect for picnics and golf. The city has a barbecue tradition unique to itself, and a well-maintained public infrastructure that makes the city feel welcoming and well-cared-for. Brookdale Memorial Oaks rests just south of Houston's green belt, right next to some of the city's major north-south thoroughfares, which makes getting around easy for its residents.
Walkability: The Briarforest area where Brookdale Memorial Oaks is located earns a middle-tier walkability score from Walkscore. At 47 out of 100, it is necessary to have a car for many errands in this neighborhood.
Age: Briarforest is a relatively young neighborhood. Its median age is just 31.8 years, which is substantially lower than the 34.4 years for Texas.
Senior Housing: Despite its younger-than-average demographics, this neighborhood has several senior housing options. Tarrytowne and Treemont offer local retirement living, while Atria maintains a skilled nursing facility to the south.
Climate: Houston has a climate typical of East Texas. Long, hot summers, irrigated with fast-moving Texas thunderstorms, give way to very mild winters. The average daily high in Houston is 79.7 degrees, the low averages 60.2 degrees, and the area experiences an annual 49.58 inches of rainfall.
Veterans' Facilities: Briarforest is noticeably short on veterans' facilities, though VFW Post 8790 welcomes vets in the nearby Hedwig Village neighborhood.
Buses and Trains: Houston's METRO service operates buses and trains throughout the city and the surrounding areas. Seniors ride at a discount, and monthly passes are available.
Taxis: Many taxi companies offer their services to the Houston area, though it's rare to see one on the street without a fare. Calling Yellow, Checker or one of the other companies in town is the best way to arrange a ride.
Ridesharing: Houston has many independent Uber and Lyft drivers, who can be summoned with a few taps in those companies' downloadable apps.
Health and Safety
Hospitals: Briarforest sits in the middle of a cluster of hospitals and medical centers, including the large facilities at Memorial Hermann, Kindred, Methodist and Westbury. Specialized headache, psychiatric and children's hospitals also call the Briarforest area home.
Crime: Crime in this neighborhood is on the high side of national averages for property offenses and theft, though rates are lower than national figures for violent crimes and crimes against people.
Sports and Leisure
Golf: Western Houston is graced by a large and well-attended golf course at the Sharpstown Golf Club.
Tennis: Briarforest residents enjoy tennis, rain or shine, at the enclosed and climate-controlled facility at Westheimer Indoor Tennis.
Gyms: The area around Brookdale Memorial Oaks generally lacks fitness centers, which drives resdients looking for senior-friendly workouts as far as Planet Fitness way to the south, near Houston Baptist University.
Shopping and Entertainment
Groceries: The Briarforest neighborhood is filled with multiple locally owned grocery stores. Most of these are oriented toward the region's large Hispanic population, such as La Mihoacana and Fiesta Mart, which offers kitchen tools and household goods in addition to groceries.
Luby's: Briarforest is lucky enough to be graced with a Luby's restaurant, which greets hungry crowds from its convenient location just north of Interstate 69.
Other Restaurants: Briarforest, and Houston more generally, is one of the best places to be for authentic Texas barbecue and real Western cuisine. The city's Southern roots are honored by several Soul Food establishments around the area, while all of the same fast food and take-out options are as easy to get here as anywhere.
Movie Theaters: AMC Studio 30 operates a large location right in the middle of Briarforest, within easy walking distance of Brookdale Memorial Oaks.
Libraries: Briarforest residents have a choice between two large and well-appointed public libraries: Jungman Branch to the north, near Uptown, and Southwest Library in the southwest region of the city.
Religious Facilities: Houston is a city that welcomes people of every conceivable faith. Many area residents adhere to the Southern Baptist tradition, and large numbers of Catholic churches grace the south side. Methodist, Unitarian, and Jewish places of worship are all within a short drive of Brookdale Memorial Oaks, as are a couple of mosques and temples dedicated to the city's Hindu, Buddhist and Sikh residents.
