My mother is on a waiting list at The Palms of Fort Myers. It was nicer, more affordable, and the food was better. They gave us lunch, and we picked some specials of the day; it was excellent. I believe the food is so good because they have it catered to the level of the independent people. I saw a few different rooms in the memory care unit that were pleasant and easily accessible to the common area. If you open your door and you look to the right, everything is there. Once you’re in the open area, you can see the TV and dining tables. They had activities going when we were there, like someone in the meeting room playing the piano with all kinds of different residents in the community listening. It’s a lovely place. It didn’t smell, and the rest of the community was beautiful, very clean, and very nice. They have a pool, too. I thought the price was top notch, and they weren’t pushy. They didn’t get you into the room and try to force you to put down that deposit for the waiting list, which some places do. There's a real board of directors, but there’s also a resident board that gives feedback and has some say in the community, which I think is really cool. They want to keep communication open rather than just run things. There was a person from the dementia unit on the board, so they were getting perspectives from different people. I was impressed that they really reached out to the people in the community in the different areas to make sure that they were relevant to them. I thought it was really good.

I visited The Palms of Fort Myers. The people were all very nice. They were throwing a little party at the time for the residents, and everybody seemed to be very content. So those were all good signs. The apartments were nice-sized and very sufficient. The atmosphere was very friendly. Most of the staff that I talked to was very nice. They were very knowledgeable.

The community that we are looking at is the Palms. We liked it because it was nice. My mother-in-law hasn't moved in yet, but she is on the waiting list. We talked to the staff members several times, and they were good. We were invited to a meal, and the food was good. It was all good.

We were very impressed with The Palms. The treatment was excellent during the visit. The staff was so friendly. They seem to have a lot of activities. The only thing lacking that I would be interested in is more arts and crafts. Otherwise, they have transportation that takes you to places; they have cards, bingo and shows of music or something. They showed us a 2-bedroom, 2-bath -- not new but I think I can decorate it myself and make it look better. It’s not as nice as some but it’s better than some, but the size is good. The dining room and the lobby looked really nice and clean. It’s a lot better than some places I’ve been.

We already signed a paper at The Palms at Fort Meyers to go on for a waiting list. We chose the facility because of the size of the apartments and the activities that they have available. The staff was very helpful and got back to us with our inquiries in a timely fashion. The rooms were very nice and very well-laid out. My husband is on a scooter, so it makes it easier for him to get around. They had line dancing, movies, and transportation that takes you to the malls in the area.

The Palms of Fort Myers was a smaller place. We were not crazy about the location, and for us, it was average. There was nothing wrong with it, but it was just not for us. The place was pretty clean. The rooms were not as nice as the other facility we visited. The dining area and the food were decent.

My visit to The Palms was excellent. I particularly like that place. It was beautiful, and they have a lot of things going on. The rooms were spacious; they even have a little kitchenette with a microwave and stuff. They had more activities for the residents.

The Palms of Fort Myers was very nice. It had great food. The inside was spacious and clean and the people looked like they were engaging. The staff that gave us the tour was very good – very enthusiastic, full of information, and friendly. They have an indoor activities and I think they also have outdoor activity, I saw somebody swimming. Their food was also excellent.

I am/was a resident of this facility

My husband has been a resident of The Palms for six years; I have been here for almost four years. He was in Assisted Living for a while; I have always been in Independent Living. We did not know each other before I moved here. I am on the Welcoming Committee here. I tell newcomers that "if you are bored or lonesome, it's probably your own fault." There are enough activities here to keep anyonyone busy. We have Bingo, Scrabble, Bridge, water aerobics, and many, many more activities. This facility is kept spotless. I have actually seen the head of housekeeping give places the "white glove test." Quite often we have special, semi-formal dinners for residents and their guests. When I first came here I was unhappy because I missed my old home. It didn't take me long to realize that at The Palms I always have someone to socialize with, which is important to me. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a facility offering Assisted Living, Memory Care or Independent Living services to check out The Palms. It's a wonderful place to call home. Your worries over you loved one will disappear immediately. i

I like The Palms at Fort Myers really well. They have been there for a very long time and they do have a very good reputation from what I have seen. It is also rated very highly in Fort Myers area. The facility was really nice. Their clients seemed really happy there. The staff seemed really nice as well. They have tons of activities for their residents. They have the assisted combined with the independent. The assisted could share the activities there. I saw some of their activity people and they seemed great. It seemed really good. Overall, this place seemed really good. I like the activities that were going on, I like that their clients seemed very happy, and I like their very nice building. Their rooms were really nice and they did have nice selections of floor plans.

I've visited The Palms. I don't really like it actually. The staff was very nice and very helpful. Their rooms were also very nice and everything was clean. However, I don't like where this facility was located. I just don't like anything about it.

My mother has been a resident of the Memory Unit at the Palms for over two years. I live in Idaho, and it is a comfort to me that Mom is being cared for by such a cheerful, friendly, and competent staff. The advise I get is excellent, and I am kept well-informed about Mom's condition. I rest easy about her even though I am on the other side of the country.

My Mom has been a resident in the Memory Care unit at the Palms for 6 months. She is doing better than I ever imagined. I visit her many times a week and am pleased with the care she is getting. The facility is always clean and the staff show a lot of compassion for the residents and families. Patients with memory issues need a structured routine and schedule and The Palms does a good job with this.

My husband has been a resident of the Memory Care Center for over a year now and I visit him often. The facility is always clean, bright and beautifully maintained. I feel my husband is getting good care and I, also, am treated with every respect. The staff is great and I am kept very well informed on my husband's care. It wasn't an easy decision to place my husband in a memory care facility, but I am glad I chose The Palms.

I am looking for a community for my mother Sue. She is very energetic and outgoing . When I toured the Palms I walked in and saw resident engaging in activities. As the tour went on the staff were smiling and saying hello. The salesperson the tour us at the Palms was very friendly and outgoing. She made me feel as if all her attention was on us and was understanding of my mothers needs and wants. I hope that anyone that tour The Palms feels the same way as we did when we tour warm caring and loving of their residence.

I toured this facility when looking for a place for my parents who are in their late 80's and need a little extra help. I think I found exactly what they need. A home like atmosphere where the staff makes you feel welcome and goes out of their way to answer questions and put you at ease. While I was there, I observed residents in a word game activity and all seemed to be enjoying themselves. I think I have found "home" for my parents!

My mother was in this facility for quite some time. They had major problems with staffing and caring for residents that were restricted to wheel chairs. There are many issues, including proper feeding, hydration and daily care. I can not reccomend this facility for anyone.

I visited The Palms and I liked the facility. It was beautiful. The orientation lady was very nice but I didn't see any other staff. The rooms were okay. It had its own bathroom. However, it bothered me because there was an odor in the bedroom. Also, their Alzheimer's unit had a gloomy appearance.

I went to visit The Palms at Fort Myers and it's very clean. It was a bright, cheery and up-to-date place. I saw a couple of different room possibilities and they were very nice. The person there was very helpful and they had a lot of activities. It's like a restaurant style where they serve the meals. I think it's just going to be perfect for my sister-in-law.

The Palms of Fort Myers was okay. The staff showed us around and we had a little tour of the facility. The facility itself was a little small. They did have a pool there but it didn't have a lift to get in or out of the pool and that was a big issue for us. Another thing we had with them was that, if my parents were move into a place like this and if one of them had a fall or whatever, then they would have to be separated. That's actually a major setback for us.

I chose The Palms of Fort Myers first of all because of the price and secondly because of the services available there. The environment has been very clean and well-kept. My mom is in a one-bedroom and it is quite spacious. She has a screened-in lanai and has her own mini kitchen. It is very nice and very clean. They have a wide range of activities, lots of games and organized exercise, outings, transportations and parties. Also their food has been very good. My mom has just moved in this May. She has just moved out of the state. She also has early stages of dementia, so she is not really doing so well with transferring to a new part of the state, but I have to say that the staff has been absolutely wonderful. They are very accommodating and helpful. I can't say enough nice things about them.

Palms of Fort Myers was an extremely clean community. It's very large. It has independent, assisted and memory care facilities. In the assisted living, they had 80 residents. The rooms that I saw are all single rooms, but they were very nice. They have a living room, a separate bedroom, a kitchen and a bathroom, like an apartment. They also had a porch or lanai. It was a wonderful and beautiful community.

The Palms of Fort Myers assisted living community was one of our stops while searching fora place for my friend's mother to live. The outside area resembled that of a high-end, well maintained condo building. The interior design was lovely with nice views throughout. There was bright light everywhere. Because the weather is so mild there, the residents may enjoy walks along the beach and spend time outdoors on a year round basis. The dining areas offered the kind of food that you would find in a five star restaurant. All of the food we saw looked and smelled delicious. The menus included food options for all kinds of diets. The staff often takes residents on many outings into the area's vibrant community to enjoy all that it has to offer. From sight seeing to nature walks and cultural events, the staff appeared to accommodate all levels of ambulation. Private units featured beautifully decorated surroundings. All had a great deal of natural light and fresh air, through large windows. Seniors are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible. The residents enjoy yoga and aerobics classes, sometimes held outdoors. The seniors appeared content here, with just the amount of care and attention they need.

My husband's aunt was a resident of The Palms of Fort Myers for several years. We visited her there often. Every time we visited her, this assisted living facility was clean and beautifully maintained. I recall in particular one holiday season when the main sitting area located not far from the front desk was spectacularly decorated for Christmas. The gorgeous fireplace was particularly striking. In addition, we always found the staff to be friendly and eager to be of assistance to us and to the residents. My husband's aunt enjoyed her time at The Palms very much and spoke highly of it. In fact, she enjoyed it there so much that she recommended it to several of her friends who ended up moving to The Palms as well. If you are looking for an assisted living facility either for yourself or for someone in your family, you should definitely take the time to check out The Palms of Fort Myers.
