Care and concernreviewed on: 03/30/2017 by Anonymous
This is a great community for my father. The community could use some improvements in the cleaning. The menu seems to be pleasing, My father does not at this time participate in the activiites, but they are offered. We would suggest that other families tour this community for the care of a loved one for care.
Helpful Staff!!reviewed on: 04/20/2017 by Anonymous
The staff at this community have been very helpful to my loved one and have provided him with great quality of care. He has a few problems with remembering things from time to time so I like the fact that they are always checking up on him and making sure he is eating his meals. There was a little bit of a hiccup with how things went in the beginning but everything is now running smoothly and we are happy.
HAPPY AND HELPFUL COMMUNITYreviewed on: 12/07/2016 by Mary Butler
I live at OAK Shadows with my partner we are happy to know that we are both in good hands. Knowledgable and empathetic staff, with a patience level that most admins don't have. So happy to call them our family. I would recommend them to anyone searching in the Houston area. Thanks, Mary Buter
Found a place for mom and sister!reviewed on: 01/03/2017 by Anonymous
I had some difficulty finding a place who would accept my mother and sister as permanent residents, especially one that was affordable. This place satisfies both requirements. The staff is very friendly, and I was instantly made to feel welcome there. The activity room was recently renovated and there is an assortment of activities provided each week. There is a dining room that offers at least one meal per day. For an extra fee, you can have more meals, but there are also kitchens in the apartments. The courtyards are very nice due to the mature landscaping. The apartment rooms are older, but they did make sure to provide new carpet. The neighborhood is older too, but it is close to the medical center. Overall I'm very happy with my choice and both my mom and my sister are doing well there. Their apartment is cleaned and there is a varying level of services offered depending on medical needs.
Not what we needed!reviewed on: 04/10/2017 by Anonymous
We thought Oak Shadows was a nice facility but they did not offer what my uncle needed. They could not provide the level of care that he needed, but everyone was friendly there.
