Review ofLawton Senior Living

I would tell others that it is not a nursing home. It is assisted living with memory care. With that in mind, I was very impressed with the staff members here. They were very compassionate and understanding, and the value for the money was great. The food here was fantastic, and I would highly recommend to others looking.

We chose Floyd Place because we had a budget and they fit that budget. We were able to have a virtual tour before my dad could see it and they he did his own virtual tour. The fact that they value military veterans was a big deal to him. They have a wall that has their pictures and they get a plaque by their doors. That little touch really helped him know there were other veterans there that he could relate to. They do have a nice variety of activities provided. The room sizes here are adequate, it is great for what he is paying. The facility is a smaller community so the staff are more attentive and it is in a safe neighborhood. I would recommend to others looking.

My dads time at Bavarian Meadows was absolutely phenomenal. It was so much more home-like and had a great atmosphere. If we had known years ago that they would have been affordable for dad, I would have tried to talk him into going here a lot sooner. In spite of everything, they were very good about communicating what their expectations were during covid through text messages, social media, etc. The room sizes here were very spacious, they were private rooms with private bathrooms. Every-time I talked to my dad, he said they had the best food there. They were chef prepared meals and always had 3-4 choices off the menu each day, he loved it. My dad was 1 of only 3 male residents when he was here, so the activities were more based towards the females. I would let others know that they are strictly a private pay facility. I would highly recommend to others families who are looking and already have.
