About Treemont Health Care Center
Treemont Retirement Community was the first Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) in Houston and is proud to have now served multiple generations of satisfied family members. A key tenet of our operations is that Treemont has a non-discriminatory policy whereby we serve everyone regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, or gender. We welcome all residents we can serve.
Our Health Care Center in Houston, TX is family-owned and operated which affords direct involvement by the owners with the daily operations for the benefit of its residents. Treemont is a special place due to its long-tenured, caring staff, many of which have 20 or 30+ years of service. We have staff that has made a decision to return to Treemont for their own retirement. As we celebrate our 40th year of service to the community, we welcome you to visit and see why residents call Treemont home!

Our goal is for you to find the best place that suits your needs, and your lifestyle. We hope that you find that Treemont Retirement Community is that place. Whether or not Treemont is the right place for you, though, we are committed to service.
Our Treemont resident counselors take a 411 approach to assist families in the process of finding which level of care will best meet the needs of their loved ones, whether that be Assisted Living, Skilled Nursing and Rehab, and/or long-term care.
Treemont is a Continuing Care Retirement Community that has all four of these care levels, which most often permits us to meet residents changing care needs. When families call our goal is to help them find the best senior solution for themselves or their loved one, even if it may not be Treemont.

Residents often come to skilled nursing, rehab, or assisted living following medical setbacks, such as a complicated infection, a fall resulting in a fracture, or a stroke resulting in the need for retraining in daily living tasks. Melanie is crucial in explaining care options in simple terms and creating a smooth transition for Treemont residents.

Upon returning to Treemont after two years at another facility as an infection preventionist, staff cried happy tears of joy when introduced as their returning leader. Jennifer has been described as that little duck going across the water; on the water, everything looks smooth and so very easy, but under the water, the little feet paddle and work hard.
