Our History

A Legacy of Caring and Excellence in Texas Assisted Living

The Abbey at Westminster Plaza is one of Houston’s most sought-after retirement communities with an indoor pool. Privately owned and operated by a Texas family with over 70 years of industry experience, our modern senior assisted living community continues a tradition of excellence and care.

Our legacy began with Mrs. Ottis Lake, a professional nurse with a profound commitment to providing the best care for those needing nursing and assistance. Her vision to build a premier nursing care facility for seniors was realized with the support of a prominent Tyler oilman, Mr. J. Burns Brown, and his wife. Mrs. Lake’s first upscale facility, licensed for 54 beds, set a new standard in senior care.

Driven by a divine calling, Mrs. Lake and her colleagues successfully lobbied the state legislature in Austin for minimum standards and licensing regulations in senior living. Her high expectations established a historic benchmark for the care of older adults. When Medicare began in 1966, her facility was one of the first in Texas to be certified for participation and the 30th licensed in the state.

Mrs. Lake’s commitment extended beyond health care; she provided for those in need, regardless of their situation in life. Her facility welcomed the poor and lonely, offering clothing and incidentals and even arranging funerals when necessary. Her compassionate approach ensured everyone received the care they deserved, fostering a legacy of generosity and excellence.

Mrs. Lake’s dream lives on today through her family’s continued dedication to exceptional health care. Our elegant design and attention to detail reflect our long history of caring, providing residents with peace, comfort, and security. This commitment to quality care was recognized when Senior Resource Guide readers awarded us Best Family-Owned/Operated Business for 2019.
