Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Jefferson, IA
Swan Place in Carroll, IA
4.2

Swan Place was very helpful and caring in getting my dad in their facility in an emergency situation during the height of Covid. Made the transition easy and he acclimated well. Caring and compassionate people with good communication with the family. We appreciate the extras including rides to doctors. They have a lot of activities. The rooms are very nice as is the entire facility. The only thing we don't understand are the annual price increases seem excessive. Otherwise very happy with Swan Place overall. Would recommend to anyone needing to help their elderly loved ones transition to a facility.

In January, my family was asked to move my father to a locked memory care facility. I checked multiple facilities and after visiting Perry Lutheran homes, I felt like that would be home for him. When we moved our father, he instantly seemed very content and at home. I can't say enough about the staff at Perry Lutheran homes! They Make sure they're residents have a fun time and are very caring of them!
