The best is Russ

My brother signed on the dotted line because of the cost. But he stays there because of the administrator and the staff. They make sure that he gets the medical care he needs and takes him to his appointments and check in on him everyday to make sure that he gets what he needs. You have to be buzzed in to get into the facility and you have to have a mask and your temperature is taken.

A Great Place To Be

The community has been cautious and about allowing outsiders in. They haven't had any cases of COVID in the community. Russ Place is great at calling us twice a week to give us an update on our loved one. My loved one was a home economics teacher in their former life. The food department, made menus to align with Route 66. They even had menus for each "restaurant" in the cities along the Route. This entertained the residents during this time and not being able to take the residents out of the community. This even educated the residents. There was even a card stock menu for the residents to keep as a memento.

Exceeding expectations

The facility is well kept, and friendly. The staff was amazing, the director went above and beyond helping us get our loved one moved in quickly during COVID. The room our loved one had was spacious and easy for him to move around in, he had no trouble getting in and out of it. He said there was plenty of food, it just wasn't spiced to his liking.

Very nice assisted living place

The Russ Place in Ruston, Louisiana is a nice place to be. The grounds are very nice, the staff is very helpful and the dining is to live for. We have a nurses on duty from 7:00 am until 7:00 pm 7 days a week and have an activity director here Monday thru Friday.

I have a relative that moved to Russ Place within the last 12 months. To say she is THRIVING is a gross understatement. She is a different person when I talk to her. There has been a big change since she lived alone. I believe being a part of a community has recharged her life. She has friends, she eats with others 3 times a day and enjoys many of the activities they offer. She feels safe when she goes to bed at night and knows if she needs anything someone will be there with the pull of a cord. I am so grateful for the care she receives that contributes to her overall wellbeing. My entire family is thankful for Russ Place!

We LOVE Russ Place

I have first hand seen how amazing Russ Place is for our family and our community! They have such a superb staff that goes over and above for their residents! My family is so very pleased with the care they have received. Russ Place feels like family. You can feel the warmth when you walk in the door. Thank you Russ Place. We are so thankful we found a place that gives us comfort to leave mom and know she is taken care of.

Life to their years

The staff really cares about the residents. Russ Place is like a big family where the residents look out for each other. Some have described it as a "Community Watch" just like you would have a "neighborhood Watch" in your subdivision. When a resident who doesn't show up for Bingo who normally is at the activity with bells on, the other Bingo Playing Residents will go to their apartments and check on them. The activities really do allow for the residents to THRIVE and add more "Life to their years" not just "Years to their lives!"

A Sad Has Been

Russ Place used to be.... This is what we hear all the time. You can see evidence of this in so many ways. It is really sad. It is still a decent facility, but you should look beyond the pretty face they put on recently for publicity photos. Complaints about problems have brought little more than comments about rising costs. Services offered are underfunded and understaffed. Residents have been asked to have patience, told that things will change. The sad truth is that we have become disillusioned beyond any but the last shred of hope. The only reason I give it any credit at all is that they do have good people here. A new director has been recently hired. However, unless the corporation takes an actual interest in restoring this facility to something closer to its former glory, I'm afraid it will cease to even be known as what used to be and become one of those places which makes people shift their eyes and shake their heads when it is mentioned. That's a shame, a real shame.

Review of Russ Place

One of the most attractive facilities I've seen. It was really a nice atmosphere and the people seem real friendly, It felt like a home in a way and not like a nursing home. I highly recommend it.

Awesome Community with a Remarkable Staff

I cannot begin to say enough good things about Russ Place. My family and I were looking for a place to assist our soon to be 90 years old mother in the El Dorado, AR. area. I contacted “A Place for Mom” and was referred to Russ Place Senior Living in Ruston, LA. I contacted Russ Place and was given an appointment to visit the facility at our convenience. On our arrival, my husband and I were met by [name removed], Community Relations Manager who treated us like long time friends and made us feel like family. We were introduced to [name removed], Staff Nurse and [name removed]. Community Chef as we received the grand tour of the remarkable facility. We were introduced to several of the residents as well. These residents seemed to be so happy and were quick to tell us how much they loved Russ Place and their Staff. [name removed] gave us and meticulously explained their program to us and we were ready to go back home and explain to other family members we had found the right place for our mom. As we began discussions with family and of course, mom, we ran into some serious obstacles. Russ Place Staff did not stop assisting us. [name removed] and [name removed] as well as members at the corporate offices worked diligently to make everything happen for us. They assisted us with information on finances and physician specialties. [name removed] even telephoned and spoke with mom in person and other family members as well answering any questions they had. She sent information, pictures, calendars of events and all the plans they had made to help our mother to feel welcome and plans to use her in activities to keep her busy. Unfortunately, our mother decided she just was not ready for a move of this type right at this time. Mom has decided to move into our home for the time being. BUT, the Staff at Russ Place has not forgotten us. They continue to stay in contact with me giving me encouragement and letting me know they are still there for me when the time comes and mom needs to make the next move. As a result of their caring, professional, courteous and kind treatment, I have told everyone I come into contact looking for a place for family about Russ Place. Russ Place is an awesome Community with a remarkable Staff!! [name removed] El Dorado, AR

Review of Russ Place

My family has been most please with Russ Place and the way they conduct themselves incaring for my mother. Their caring attitude was exhibited when we first arrived - we were gretteed by several members of the staff and they immediately assited mom from the car. Communication has been fantastic. They promtly respond to our inquires and want to seek a solution to any roadblock that may arise. The enviorment is one that remind you of a family reunion minus the grumpy aunt or cantenkerous grandpa that is part of every family. We feel we are a part of the Russ Place Family. [name removed] & the rest of the staff have been very coooperative. The [name removed] is extremely lucky to have found such a caring , loving place that we trust will do anything possible to see that our mom is comfortable.

I toured Russ Place a few months ago and found it to be a place where my aunt could go when the time is right. I got a great feeling as soon as I walked in. Very inviting and cozy.

Review of Russ Place - Ruston, LA

My experience with Russ Place was superb from the beginning, from getting information, and touring. We were trying to transition my mother-in-law from Mo to La. [Removed] is great with residents and sends pictures from time to time of my mother in law participating in activities. [Removed] went above and beyond with getting our questions answered, and believe one, we had questions. We think of [Removed] as family! [Removed], the nurse was and is still very helpful. On the tour I was impressed by the apartments and even said that I would live here at Russ Place! The afternoon she moved in, after a 9 hour trip, the staff had fresh fruit and flowers in her room. She has improved so much since being at Russ Place. I would be happy to recommend Russ Place for any seniors looking for assisted living!!
