The Heritage Tomball - Tomball, TX has yet not published prices.
This seemed like a really nice community when we visited. The staff we met were friendly. They offer transportation and they allow pets. This community was just a little out of our price range.
From What I Remember
The tour I was given was fine and I liked the experience I got that day. After consideration I noticed that it was some distance from my family. When it came to the price it was a bit higher than I expected. This was not going to be a fit for me.
The heritage Tomball had a hospital feel to it. The place was not welcoming. The room they showed us that my loved one would be in was down a long hallway far away from the dining room. The overall layout of the community was very confusing. The rooms looked like hospital rooms, it just was not what we were looking for.
Didn't Receive A Proper Tour!!
I took a tour of the community and the person that assisted me with the tour was the janitor. The tour guide was not available. The janitor tried his best to accommodate me and was attentive. I however did not receive a proper tour of the community. I did not receive the information that should have been provided for me like activities offered and the meal plans.
