  • I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to our Caregivers. They are warm and friendly and always go out of their way to make me feel genuinely cared for. They are my second family. I really love living here at the Etta!

    Making the decision to move my parents into an assisted living was not an easy one by far, but the thoughtful staff at The Etta went above and beyond to help make this transition for our family as smooth as possible. They even made it possible for my mom and dad to keep their dog by installing a gate on the porch of the apartment so that they could easily take her out. This kind of service is truly unique and reflects the warm and caring attitude that everyone wants for their family.

    We have been very pleased with The Etta. The staff has been very responsive to my 96 year old mother's needs, and treat her with respect and affection. Her studio apartment is quite spacious, and filled with natural light from the large windows. The calendar is filled with activities- exercise classes, flower arranging, games, movies, outings, and much more. We really couldn't ask for more!

    They are great to my father. Kay Diaz has always been helpful to both my father and myself when I go to visit. Staff is top notch and the facility is very clean. Both my father and I are very happy with The Etta at Shavano Park and it is one of the best decisions we have made for the care of my father.

    The tour I had at The Etta at Shavano Park was excellent. It's a very nice assisted living place, nice staff, and I can't say highly enough about it. It feels homey and the staff was excellent, they were great. We checked the menu and the food looked very delicious. There were some people playing games during our visit.

    The Etta has truly been a Godsend for our family and my mother! We can rest assured she is taken care of and she is safe in a beautiful home. She always has what she needs and enjoys being able to interact with people daily. This was definitely missing from her life before the move. The caregivers are kind and helpful and very attentive. We love The Etta!!!

    A great place for our mom! We moved our mom from an assisted living facility in Virginia to the ETTA in San Antonio Texas. The staff at ETTA made the transition so smooth and effortlessly for our family. Our mom is very happy there and we have a ViewClix video screen in her room for us to conference with her anytime we want, she always looks great, well dressed and happy. The staff has been awesome, weekly calls, one on one meetings, zoom call and the facility is currently under renovations. Having our mom so far away and due to COVID restrictions is is so comforting to know she is in a safe place that is taking amazing care of her!

    I toured the Etta during a Christmas In July event they hosted, and am extremely impressed with the beauty and cleanliness of the care community. The staff are extremely personable and have a genuine heart for the residents. It would a cozy place with engaging activities and amenities. I definitely give them my highest recommendation to anyone that has a family member in need of care.

  • I have been a resident here at The Etta for 18 years. The location and the beautiful windows are what attracted me to the community. I enjoy doing puzzles daily, chatting with the friendly residents, and the food is top-notch!


  • I always thought The Etta was a beautiful place when driving by. I decided to take a tour, and here I am. I enjoy the activities and made great friends in only seven months!
