QUESTIONS YOU MAY BE ASKING

WHY SHOULD I CONSIDER A MOVE TO BRAZOS TOWERS AT BAYOU MANOR?

Do you spend too much time at home alone and sometimes wish you had more friends? Are house maintenance, lawn care, shopping and cooking becoming burdensome tasks? Do you want more time to pursue hobbies, travel, go to classes or stay in shape? Are you worried about where you or your spouse would be cared for if necessary? Do you want to be sure your children are not worrying about your future?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the questions above, Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor maybe the place for you. A common theme among our residences is, they should have moved sooner to enjoy the freedom of living at this distinctive community.

WHY IS A CONTINUING CARE COMMUNITY SO IMPORTANT?

Continuing care means you will receive long-term health care services regardless of your needs without moving from Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor. With continuing care, you know where you would receive assisted living and nursing services, who would be caring for you, how much it will cost and how you would pay for it. With our comprehensive program of wellness activities, in-home services, rehabilitation therapy, assisted living, memory support (dedicated residences coming 2015) and nursing care, you will get the level of care you require for as long as you need it. If you move to the health care center, it will be a great relief to know you can do it within the community with the help of people who know you and respect your needs. And, with that, the peace of mind that comes with knowing your family and loved ones are confident you are being supported.

QUESTIONS FOR LOVED ONES

HOW CAN I BE SURE THEY CAN AFFORD IT?

We carefully review the financial and health status of all residents before they are accepted for residency at Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor. Although we covenant that no resident would be asked to leave the community for financial reasons alone, we want to be sure all of our residents are secure financially for the rest of their lives. One of the benefits of Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor is the wide range of sizes and prices of our residences. If your loved one cannot afford their first choice, we would guide them to less expensive residences while allowing them to enjoy all the amenities and benefits of community living. Of course, we would always advise you and your loved one to confirm your financial status with your professional advisor.

HOW WILL A MOVE MAKE THEM FEEL MORE SECURE AND HAPPIER?

One of the major benefits of living at Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor is a very simple one – the services, activity choices and opportunity for socialization are much more robust then they would ever have living alone. Just the knowledge that help is just an urgent call away, or looking forward to the next exercise class or lecture, creates a sense of security and well being.

WILL THEY RECEIVE THE CARE THEY NEED?

As a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor is fully equipped and licensed by the State of Texas to provide wellness services, assisted living, nursing, rehabilitative services and memory care support. Living in community, staff and other residents know and care about your loved ones, and are always ready to provide respectful support. If a resident needs services beyond our scope (hospital care, psychiatric care), we will be sure they are referred to an alternative where their needs may be met.

I WORRY ABOUT WHAT MAY HAPPEN TO THEM LIVING ALONE.

We tell our residents that the best gift they have given their family is that of peace of mind. Taking the worry out of your life is an important benefit of moving to Brazos Towers at Bayou Manor. It allows your loved one to make their own choices, live an independent, enriched retirement with the security of supportive services available if and when needed.
