Our company has been providing care for Seniors since 1990 when we built our first Community.
We have served seniors in Smithville and the surrounding area for 21 years.
Our community is licensed by the MO Department of Health and Senior Services for 12 residents. Our small service number allows for the staff to really get to know the seniors who live with us — not just as a community resident, but as a person. Moving to a care facility can be frightening for both the resident and their family, but our trained staff help ease the transition with genuine caring, respect, and understanding of the feelings that accompany such a life change. Your loved one's physical health, mental health, emotional needs and safety are important to us. Finding a community who knows how to address those needs are what we are all looking for, right?
A small community lends more to a large family setting rather than a nursing home setting. Residents have input on meals and activities in their...

This facility seems very pleasant. It is a smaller community which Has its pluses and minuses. The staff seemed very knowledgeable and pleasant. I do not have anything negative to say about this facility at all.

I have lived here at Bristol almost a year. I love it here. The manager and her staff are helpful. They go out of there way to be helpful. I like to be out of my room and watch TV and talk to the staff when they are cooking. They always have time for me. I feel like they are my family. I'm glad I moved here I'm not lonely anymore.

When we walked into the home it felt like home. The staff was cooking and it smelled wonderful. Our mother loves living there. The administrator and her staff are so sweet. Mom loves having her hair braided and can no longer do this so the staff always helps mom with the little things she can no longer do for herself. If you are looking for a place for your parent I would highly recommend this home.

Beware... it's not what they tell you!

If you're looking for assisted living for your loved one and they want more than "isolation" than don't look here. Yes, they will provide meals (although there are many left overs and cold breakfasts) and they will dispense medicine but that is all they do at Bristol manor. They claim to have organized activities...NOT TRUE! The lights are turned off after every meal and everyone is encouraged to stay in their bedroom. There is no assistance for daily living. The residents are forced into isolation. They claim to have 24 hours staffed employees... NOT TRUE. they don't have employees working at night. They tell you they do but believe me from first hand experience, THEY DON'T. The Administrator and her children live on site but are unavailable at night. They had a resident walk away unnoticed because no one was working. This 77 year old woman was lost for 8 hours in 100° heat. She's lucky she survived. If you care about your family member and they need assistance don't put them in Bristol manor. It is designed for people who want to be left alone.

Don't put your loved ones here!

My mother was at Bristol manor for 4 months. They talk a great story but are very lazy about providing services. The administrator's grown sons who live there with her have foul mouths. They also throw temper tantrums. They talk to the residents like they are children. They advertise that they are staffed 24 hours a day but they are NOT. They sleep at night and put up notes telling residents to not bother them. They talk about the residents behind their backs. They complain they don't have enough money for food and at the end of the month the meals are sparse and cheap nasty food.

Ms. Hannah, it is unfortunate that you have chosen to use this format to protest a matter that does not involve care of residents in this facility. Regards,

Bristol used to be a warm loving environment, with great food and loving help. Unfortunately that has changed dramatically July 2018. New managers. Don't put your loved ones here.

Good care and value

We are happy with this nice community for my mom's care. We like the caring staff and the cleanliness of the community. They offer a good healthy menu. The list of activities are helpful for the residents who are able to participate. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one.

Not impressive

I was not impressed with this community. The community looked run down and there was an odor when we visited. The people we met during the tour were nice.

Excellent Facility

Very pleased with Bristol Manor at Smithville, MO. The food is excellent and the people are very helpful and friendly. Small, homey atmosphere. Only downside is the parking lot not being cleared of ice and snow in the winter.

Thank you for the review. We will address the snow removal with the removal company. regards,
