We decided at a certain point early last year that it was inevitable that we’d end up in a senior independent facility somewhere. In talking with the family we decided sooner rather than later, particularly when we could make the decisions without someone making it for us.                                                      ~Gene & Patricia

I came to Treemont through a different route.  I was a patient in the hospital for about six months and I needed a skilled nursing center after my stay in the hospital. So I had been at several different nursing several nursing centers which were not good at all. So I finally came to Treemont. And they did a marvelous job for me. The nursing staff were competent, they were caring; they took wonderful care of people. They knew who each patient was and what each patient needed. And I had a good experience if you can have a good experience in a situation like that. When I entered the rehab center I came in on a gurney and an ambulance and I left walking. The physical therapy department over there is marvelous. They got me from the gurney, to a wheelchair, to a walker, to a cane to the Treemont independent living. They are an absolutely marvelous bunch of people.                                                                                     ~Joanne

My husband was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. It was apparent we would need to find another place to live. I stopped and looked for somewhere in this part of town so things would be familiar to him. I had an opportunity to look for a place that had a health care situation on the premises. So when he did get worse…he would be close by. I could see him every day and instead of having to get in my car and fighting the weather, rain or shine. Treemont just seemed like the place for us and it turned out to be. For 10 months I was with him every morning at 6:30am; we had breakfast together, and I stayed with him as long as he was awake. While he was awake I was right there beside him, until his death. I am satisfied with the arrangements here.                       ~Beryl

This blog post describes the benefits of assisted living via the “real life” experiences of Houston residents who made their senior living decision — and chose Treemont

Visit a Community. It is always a wise move to take the time to visit the community a few times — have lunch, join an entertainment event, party or activity. Meet residents who have had illustrative careers in banking, oil and gas industry, teaching and other careers. Join their coffee klatches and see the camaderie that has developed. It is a joy to see the new friendships made among senior residents in assisted living communities. It is a pleasure to have senior tell me how happy they are in their new home, without the upkeep of their home, or having to worry about cooking meals.

It is so hard to overcome the emotion of selling one’s 50-year home or downsizing from a large apartment to a smaller one. It is often hard to imagine that new friendships can be forged in one’s golden years. Residing in an active senior living community in Houston, TX can be the best of all worlds…independence, activities, companionship, stability and great food!  Plan to visit a few communities to determine which would be the best fit for you. I often hear the only complaint a resident has after moving to Treemont Retirement Community is, “I just wish I knew then what I know now….and if I did, the one thing I would have changed is I would have moved sooner!”  This is the time to take the necessary steps to secure your lifestyle for the future. Take the first step by scheduing your free lunch and tour.
