Bayport of Fort Walton Beach
5.0

Send everybody here! They are phenomenal as far as cleanliness, and the staff members truly care. They pulled out a legitimate red carpet when my loved one moved in and had a sign up that said "Welcome." It was amazing to see the level of love and warmth they had - not just the staff but the people who lived there as well. They were really sweet, and you could tell they were really happy and well cared for. Everybody there just had the best demeanor.

I’ve had nothing but a good experience while living here. The staff is good and able to answer all of my questions. The food they serve is nutritious and there are lots of options to choose from. They have a few different activities available like cards, crafts, and trips. The facility is brand new and is very clean. I would absolutely recommend them.
