About Us

From its very conception, Seven Acres was designed to provide a warm, caring and religious atmosphere for those in need of supportive care and senior living in Houston, TX.

Seven Acres traces its historic beginnings to 1943 when leaders in the Houston Jewish community, recognizing the need for a home for the Jewish aged, purchased a small house on Branard Street that could accommodate 14 residents. With that early success came more demand and growth in the services and capacity Seven Acres could offer. In 1954, a new facility on Chimney Rock Road opened its doors to welcome 31 residents. Three more expansions in five years increased the Houston senior home’s capacity to 98. In 1977, Seven Acres Jewish Home for the Aged cut the ribbons in celebration of a long-held vision – a multi- service facility at 6200 N. Braeswood Blvd, which remains our home to this day.

Seven Acres Jewish Senior Care Services is located on the Pauline Sterne Wolff Campus adjacent to The Medallion Jewish Assisted Living Residence. Building on decades of experience and elder care expertise, Seven Acres provides modern psycho-social and medical services to residents and senior clients living in our community.

We are the only Jewish nursing facility serving three kosher meals daily in the Texas Gulf Coast region. Seven Acres is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian, certified and licensed Medicaid, Medicare-accredited, and private-pay facility. We warmly welcome people of all faiths and cultures.

Located just west of Loop 610 in Southwest Houston, Seven Acres is able to provide senior living in Houston, TX including comprehensive elder care, nursing home and skilled nursing for 144 individuals – both seniors and others of all ages in need of skilled nursing after surgery, during an illness or injury or attentive care for those whose disabilities render them unable to care for their own basic needs.

Houston Senior Living: Our Story

Our more than 220 dedicated employees and hundreds of volunteers work together in an honoring and nurturing environment to provide a comprehensive range of services available to all our residents. Known for our elder care expertise, Seven Acres is frequently sought out among Houston nursing homes to assist with outreach services to the senior community, caregivers, medical professionals and other service providers to the aged in the greater Houston area.

To honor and nurture the needs of the whole person, Seven Acres offers a full complement of enhanced social, religious and cultural programs including strictly kosher meals in a caring and loving environment.

Our History


Despite the many impacts and demands of a world war raging around them, leaders in the Houston Jewish community recognized the need for a nearby home for Jewish seniors and pooled their funds to purchase a small house on Branard Street that could accommodate 14 residents.


With a growing wait list for space at Seven Acres, the community raised the funds to build a new home on Chimney Rock Road for as many as 31 residents.


Now recognized and trusted as an established senior care facility in Southwest Houston, the community worked together to fund and construct three more expansion projects in just five years, bringing the home’s capacity to 98.


Thanks to the vision, commitment and hard work of community leaders who saw the growing need to provide care and supportive living arrangements for an aging population – their own family members and the aging relatives of their non-Jewish friends and neighbors in the Meyerland, Bellaire, West University and Fondren neighborhoods − Seven Acres Jewish Home for the Aged opened its doors at 6200 N. Braeswood Blvd, our current 162,364 square feet home on seven acres in the heart of the Houston community.


The Medallion Jewish Assisted Living Residence opened its doors.


Received license to treat skilled care residents who need rehabilitation after a hospital stay.


Today, Seven Acres Jewish Senior Care Services is located on the Pauline Sterne Wolff Campus adjacent to The Medallion.

With decades of experience serving seniors, Seven Acres is well known and respected in the senior living industry as elder care experts who provide the most modern psycho-social and medical services to residents and elderly clients living in the community – a core value and vision of our community leaders since the facility’s founding.

One of the largest nonprofit long-term care facilities in Houston and the only Jewish nursing home serving the Texas Gulf Coast, Seven Acres is recognized as one of the most outstanding elder care facilities Houston, TX has to offer.

Through its medical affiliation with Trumen Physicians & Associates PLLC, its well-trained and dedicated nursing personnel, an ancillary staff of more than 220, and the caring attention of hundreds of volunteers, Seven Acres provides its religiously and culturally diverse residents the most comprehensive, personalized care and services available.

Tomorrow and the years ahead

Standing on the shoulders of the dedicated visionaries who fulfilled their promise to honor their fathers and mothers, today’s emerging leaders in the local, professional and Jewish communities are working together to ensure the legacy of Seven Acres continues to meet the needs of the next generation.

Whether participating in research, collaborating to innovate best practices, co-hosting educational forums for healthcare professionals and family caregivers, or publishing helpful information online and in large print handouts, Seven Acres’ elder care experts and local community leaders remain engaged in assessing and planning for the needs of seniors in the next decade and beyond.

“My father’s residency at Seven Acres was comforting to him
and to us. We are so thankful for your concern and support.”

-Charles T.

To the Staff and Crew at Seven Acres,

Thank you for taking care of my mom for the past four years. You took great care of her, she felt safe and at home with you. She particularly loved the concerts where she would often sing along if she knew the song. I know many of you loved her as I do. Thank you again for all you’ve done, and I pray you and your families are well and remain so until we can meet again in person.

– S.L.
“I did achieve my goals and surpassed them beyond my expectations. I focused on getting well and doing anything the staff asked of me. At first, I couldn’t believe I would have to relearn so many life skills that we all take for granted, like bathing and dressing oneself, walking, and using a toilet. But with the incredible love, caring and generosity of my family and friends, this combined support was deeply strengthened by the phenomenal work of all of Seven Acres nursing, administrative staff and, of course, the wonderful rehab therapists. Their sense of humor, continuous encouragement, determination, professional integrity, and faith in me to be able to relearn life skills were all done with great compassion, patience and respect in treating my daily care needs. The spiritual aspect of a patient’s life and needs are extremely important in their recovery and I received great respect from all the staff. The therapists had the ability to push me doing my exercises and advancing without harming me.”
– L.W.
