About the facility Morada Fort Smith

Located near Massard Creek in scenic northwest Arkansas, Morada Fort Smith is a rural, multi-story independent living community offering chef-inspired meals, accommodating apartment-style homes, and superior senior living services. Situated on the Arkansas River, the historic city of Fort Smith offers a delightfully urban feel with a number of coffee shops, parks, and close proximity to art museums, national forests, and hiking trails through the Ozark Mountains.

Considerate and attentive associates offer a large variety of services, including housekeeping, linen, maintenance, scheduled transportation, and three nutritious, restaurant-style meals a day served inside the open-concept dining room. Elegant chandeliers and large skylights fill the dining room with an abundance of light, making it the perfect place to socialize with others.

Engaging activities and events are scheduled daily. Residents are free to attend a Sunday morning devotional service in the on-site chapel, stay active with a fitness class, or join their friends in the game room. Community cookouts and happy hours are planned for residents who love to socialize. Between the daily activity and full-time amenities, there is always something to keep you busy at Morada Fort Smith.

My review of Butterfield Place

I have liven in apartments for many years with many landlords. I have also worked in nursing homes and I have taken extended visits with assisted living (my father) and "seniorcare" (my father and my aunt). This facility is the best one I have been in. In a very difficult time, they never did anything but to care for my physical and mental comfort.

Tour of Butterfield Place

I toured Butterfield Place and I was not at all impressed with it. Being a person of color, I felt that the staff members here were not welcoming and very cold towards me.

My review of Butterfield Place

The people here were nice and I did think it was a good value for the money. They advertised 5 star meals here for the meal plans and that was not the case. Most of the time she got choice of a PB sandwich or a corndog for dinner. There were no meal plans and they were not nutritious meals so I would tell others to check into that before moving in. They also said they provided transportation and when she needed a ride to the dentist they said that they did not have a driver. They did have someone who we could pay inside to take her so we did end up doing tat. A lot of the stuff they said they provided they did not follow through with so she did end up moving out.

Hi Kim, thank you for your review. We do have a bus driver at our community, and our bus runs Tuesday-Thursday. For any appointments that occur on a different day, we also have a transportation service we work with for the convenience of our residents. We offer various menu options at mealtimes and our menus change daily. We always provide back up options such as sandwiches if residents do not like what is offered in the 3 meal options. We are excited to be able to safely invite residents back into our dining room, and they have been very happy with their dining experiences. If you would like to discuss your concerns further, please do not hesitate to contact the local team directly. Thank you

Highly recommend

I chose Butterfield Place because I had checked on it a few years ago and toured it and really liked it. The apartment sizes here are great and have been perfect for me. The food is chef prepared meals and before covid they had a great menu to choose from. I am very happy here and do not have any complaints. I would definitely recommend to others.

Butterfield Community review

The one problem we do have with this community is sometimes they say certain things that they are going to do, but then they do not get done. However, this is a nice facility and they do have quite a few activities to offer.

Care For The Residents Without out Feeling Clinical

I haven't had any issues with Butterfield Place, especially during COVID. I would highly recommend this community. Especially for a loved one who is independent, yet may need very little assistance from the community. This is a fabulous community for those individuals.

A great place for my loved one

My father-in-law has noted there is supposed to be someone who cleans his room once a week, and that has not happened. The staff is great and friendly and offer to help if needed.
