Customer Reviews

Excellent facility and tour guide, 5 stars o the tour guide. The cost is reasonable with all services we would need included. Very clean and bright, well maintained. Again tour guide was wonderful.

They Treated My Husband Like Their Best Friend

Sadly my husband was not in this community long before passing away. But I want to express my genuine gratitude towards all the staff. I appreciate all of you so much with the time and tenderness you showed my husband even after him being a difficult patient at times. The time and patience you showed is a shining result of the wonderful training you have had. While he was there and feeling good he was eating and enjoying the food. There was nothing ever out of place it was extremely clean and well kept. I have recommended this place to several people in the last few weeks

So far so good

The staff are friendly and treat mom well. We are pleased with the service she is receiving. She complains about the food, however it is better than at other communities in the area. They do a good job of keeping the community clean. She likes her room and I would recommend this community.

Improvement for care

I like the care from this community. We like that the community is very clean inside and out. The staff is friendly. They need to work on communication skills. The level of care is not what we expected and some improvements are needed. We have noticed that a few things have not been attentended for my mom, like water and some personal care. We would hope that this community would work on some of the improvements. We would recommend that families tour this community for the care of a loved one on their own.

Nice place, but limited amenities.

For the most part, I liked this facility. However, they did not offer all of the amenities that I would have liked. For example, I wanted a garage that was available for me to use and this was not offered by this facility. Other than this, it seemed to be quite a nice place.

My dad liked this facility the best of the ones we initially looked at because it was all one story. Everything is on one floor and it was not huge. The food was good and he enjoyed his lunch there. The only drawback for us was that it did not have a skilled nursing facility so if he suddenly requires skilled nursing, he would have to move to another facility.

Positive Environment!!

My aunt has recently moved into this community and so far we are very pleased with how things are going for her. The staff have all been wonderful and I am comfortable with the care that they are providing her. She has been really enjoying the dinning experience and cannot say enough great things about the meals they prepare them. Overall we are very pleased and would defiantly recommend it to anyone.

Good so far!

I would recommend this community because things are going well for my uncle so far. The place is clean and everyone is very friendly to him. It is the right level of care that he needs. We visit him almost every day. It has ben a good experience.

Needs some improvements!

I have mixed feelings about this facility. They seem to have a lot of turnover and staffing issues. The main problem I have noticed is with the cleaning staff. When my loved one first moved in, the room was dirty. There were feces still on the toilet and the dining room reeks like urine. Everyone there is very nice, but they just need some major improvements.

Outstanding Care and comfort

This is a nice community and we really like the staff that are very attentive and caring. The community is clean and well taken care of inside and out. The meals are very good and she is pleased with the menu. They do have activities that are offered. We would recommend the care and value for other families.

A good value

They offer plenty of activities at this community. The staff are friendly and answer our questions, however I do think the communication could be better. The food is ok. The community is well maintained and they are making improvements. I would recommend this community.

I have been very happy with them.

I have been very happy with them. I would give them a five out of five. I don't have any major complaints at this time.

I toured your community. The marketer was not a nice person, but everyone else seems nice. Your ED is very nice, Sheri [removed]. Had a great talk with her and a better understanding of prices.

Review of Elmcroft of Braeswood - Houston, TX

My dad lived here until the good lord took him. He told us his family that he was so happy at Elmcroft. Plus he loved to play cards with the maintenance man, Nate. He always made time to play cards with him even though he had a busy work day. Thanks, Nate!

Wonderful Activities

My mother's move into Elmcroft has been good. So far we are very happy. The community looks nice and is well maintained with good housekeeping. Staff is great and helpful with anything you ask of them, and very kind. They offer really good activities here like field trips, Zoomba, and arts and craft projects. It is really nice to see her participating. She really enjoys the food, and seems to be really adjusting well. I would recommend this community to family and friends.

Friendly, outgoing staff

I thought they did a very good job overall at Elmcroft of Braeswood. The staff here is outgoing and courteous, and they keep the whole place looking very clean and well kept. They also do a very good job with the food, which is always a nice surprise. I would recommend them.

Very nice community!

I think they do a good job overall at Elmcroft of Braeswood. I am located out of state, which can make things difficult, but in general they do a good job keeping me up to date on how my loved one is doing. I really love that they'll send me pictures of what Mom is doing, so I know she is getting out and enjoying the activities. I have had a little trouble determining exactly who my contact person should be when I call to check on Mom, however. The facility itself feels bright and airy, and is on the smaller side, and is all on one level which I like. I would highly recommend this place, they do a great job!

Above and beyond efforts.

We were planning to move my mother into this facility until circumstances forced us to have to go with a higher level of care. I have to say that the staff of Elmcroft was fantastic, and went out of their way to help us quickly scramble to adapt to the change. They were very helpful and proactive and worked to help us even after it became clear my mother wouldn't be joining them. Their above and beyond efforts make me completely comfortable with putting a loved one in their hands. If you're looking for a place in the area, definitely give them a chance, I believe they genuinely care.

Sounds like a great place!

From what we've heard from our loved one things are going great at Elmcroft of Braeswood! Other than a few snags in the beginning, which were quickly resolved, everything here has been fantastic! The community has all sorts of activities going on, and it sounds like she has been participating in all of them and keeping very busy!

Jill was nice but I didn't ...

Jill was nice but I didn't care for this property but the reception area and hallway leading back to the resident apartments smelled of urine. Also, the bathroom in the model unit had a TERRIBLE sewer smell. The price is not in line with the aesthetics. The best feature of the property is how close it is to TMC.

Good overall

Elmcroft has been good for my mother so far. It is a one story community with an open layout. They have everything any of the residents could need when it comes to facilities and resources. The only issue that we've come across so far is that my mother always needs her medications on time, and this has not always been the case. Otherwise, it is a good community.

Very very nice, our second choice

Honestly I would have picked this one, but I had already signed papers for another by the time I happened to see this one and do a walk-in tour. It's a very nice place!
Everything looked great, the rooms were lovely, and the residents I saw in the dining hall looked happy. The staff are also very friendly. The marketing person I spoke with, Dominic, was more than happy to talk with me even though I was already committed to another location, and has stayed in touch.


The cleanliness is where I've had a little problem but I can't say it's Elmcroft's fault. My father isn't happy there so he doesn't want anyone coming in the room to clean it. The actual community is very clean - it's just my father's room that's not as clean as I would like.

It's expensive but apparently that's the going rate. They seem to be attentive to my father's needs. He's just not being cooperative right now. One of the reasons that we chose Elmcroft was that it was a little bit smaller, not as many residents.

Already recommended

It was recommended by A Place for Mom and when I went to visit the community I really liked it. It just seemed like it was the right fit for my loved one. I felt like they would take really good care of my loved one. They are very friendly and the community is very nice. I am very pleased with them and the job they have been doing so far. I would recommend them to anyone in fact I already have recommended them to people.

Of what I have seen up to this point,...

Of what I have seen up to this point, my preference. It is a smaller facility, one level, with beautiful garden area. More importantly, I think the overall environment is more conducive to my father's personality.
