The Abbey at Westminster Plaza Assisted Living Community

The Abbey at Westminster Plaza is privately owned and operated by a Texas family with over 65 years of industry experience. Our Assisted Senior Living was the vision of Mrs. Ottis Lake, a professional nurse, who dedicated her life to see that those needing nursing and assistance would receive the best care available. Her dream to build and provide a nursing care facility for seniors came to fruition with the help of a prominent Tyler oilman, Mr. J. Burns Brown and his wife. Mrs. Lake opened her first very up-scale facility licensed for 54 beds.

Mrs. Lake and a handful of very willing colleagues successfully lobbied the State Legislature in Austin for minimum standards and licensing regulations. Her high expectations helped to establish an historic benchmark for care of the elderly. When Medicare began in 1966, her facility became one of the very first in the state to be certified for participation and the 30th facility licensed in the state of Texas.
Today, Mrs. Lake would be proud of what her family has built with a profound commitment to excellence in healthcare. We were awarded BEST FAMILY OWNED/OPERATED BUSINESS for 2019 by Senior Resource Guide Readers.
This luxury retirement community is conveniently located in West Houston, TX near Memorial and the Energy Corridor.
Beautifully appointed are the Home Theatre, Sun Rooms, Game Room, Hair Salon, Kitchenettes, Veterans Wall of Honor, and an Arts and Crafts Room. Lovely landscaped grounds also provide a nice walking path to enjoy the outdoors.
