My mother has been in the care of La Vita Bella for several years now starting April of 2016. I cannot express my appreciation for the excellent care she has received from them. They are very patient and kind. Always have a good attendant to resident ratio. And, I truly feel they love her. We (her family) all agree that it was great fortune for her to be a resident at La Vita Bella. I read some of the other reviews posted about what happened when Dickinson was flooded during hurricane Harvey. My mother was there when it happened. I believe La Vita Bella did everything in their power to provide for their residents. This was an extraordinary event. And, they were doing what they had been advised by Houston's mayor and local news agencies to "shelter and stay in place". The water rose at an unprecedented rate. I believe La Vita Bella, in those early hours of the night, were faced with something few, if any were trained to handle. All residents were ultimately relocated to safety. And, I'm sure from that experience, La Vita Bella is prepared for any future events of similar scale. It is easy to second guess things after they are over.

I cannot imagine rating an assisted living facility more highly than La Vita Bella. This is one large home where residents are truly known and cared for as family. The home itself is spotless and the staff is amazing. I only wish I had brought my mother there sooner. Finding La Vita Bella was nothing short of an answer to my prayers.

My grandmother is here on hospice. The entire staff has been absolutely wonderful! It's like a family here. They make grandma comfortable and have literally gone above and beyond to help. Grandma loves it here too! Watching the butterflies and listening to the record player. The whole house has been completely redone and is very nice. Very clean. The owners have put personal touches everywhere. It feels like home not like a hospice. We really appreciate that. I highly recommend La Vita Bella!

This is what I know from personal experience. My mother stayed here until she passed in September of 2016. The staff are trained to give personal attention to every resident. The residents are watched like a hawk to make sure they don't gone off on their own; they know where everyone is. They encourage them to take part in socializing and make sure everyone eats together. They are observant of everyone's needs. Not once did I walk in smelling urine. They were taken to the bathroom whenever needed. Those ladies work so hard and love the ladies so much. The owner expects no less and knows all the residents there. They kept me informed with what was going on with mom, showed me pictures of her when she was active and asleep, and always answered my calls quickly.

Regarding the photo of the residents sitting in the flood waters of Harvey: This was an assisted living home, which means it is in a normal residential structure. There are thousands of these kinds of assisted living places. People get a license to take care of people in their homes. This is very different from a nursing home, which is the common name for a skilled nursing facility. As a home health nurse, I visited many people in small facilities like this.The owner was a woman who was told not to evacuate her neighborhood. She probably had no place to take her residents and no w/c accessible transport to move them quickly. People are reporting the flooding came in very fast. The structure was is single story home (see the google earth photo), so there was no higher ground to go to. The photo that went viral was taken by the owner's daughter and shared on social media (twitter first I think) to get help for these people. I know the owner must have called 911 when the water was coming in and did not get timely help. The bottles of water on the table were there to have something for the residents to drink while they were waiting to be rescued. People have been responding with hate and toxic judgment about this photo all over the internet. It is not kind to do this when the whole story of what happened is not known. I have not been to this facility but I am giving it 5 stars for dealing with a very difficult situation and for hope that they will be able to recover from this unprecedented storm event and return to caring for people in need.
