Austin Assisted Living: Emeritus' Vista Oaks, Lakeway TX

A few months ago, I moved my elderly mother out of a high priced assisted living facility into a much more reasonably priced one. This new placement is superior in every way.

The caretakers are not run ragged because of 'bottom-line' dictates and the administration is familiar with all of the residents' needs. The building is on a single floor and no elevators are required. Employee morale is high and turn over low because they are valued. In short, if you are looking at assisted living facilities, avoid the larger ones with too many "moving parts" -- there's too much room for communication breakdowns and confusion.
