I visited this facility
I was already familiar with Sayre Christian Village. They are non-profit. I knew about them through my church. When I visited them, the prices were too high. The staff was cordial. They could improve on the price. They should be several levels of pricing.

The care is excellent at Sayre Christian Village, and the facility is very nice. My father was in a private room. It was quite large and clean, and I would say very nice.

I visited this facility
I was looking for a facility for my mother-in-law and I came to visit Sayre Christian Village. It was a lovely facility and I would love her to be there. It was very nice. The room has a lot of safety features. The staff were great. I saw a lot of people and they all looked like they were all cared for. They also looked happy and satisfied. They were having activities at that time. I was very favorably impressed with the place.

I have had 3 family members at Sayre Christian Village. One at Baunta, one at Friendship Towers and one in the Nursing Home Care. All three received excellent care. The staff is amazing and truly enjoy working there. They always have smiles and show true affection for the residents. Renay knows every resident's dietary preferences and greets each one with a hug in the dining room. My mother has lived there for 3 1/2 years and loves it. When she comes to visit, it isn't long before she is ready to "go home" and greets her apartment with, "Hello, home" and a big sigh of contentment when we open the door. When we visit, she is happy to see us, but we can tell she is concerned about missing out on activities with her friends. The camaraderie among the residents is amazing. Love Sayre Christian Village. It is such a comfort and blessing to know my mother is happy. The facilities, except the new rehab facility are not the newest and fanciest, but that is not the most important factor, it is the staff. When my mom was in the hospital, the nurses commented on what good things they had heard about Sayre Christian Village. Mom quickly asked, "Then why aren't you working there instead?". I particularly like the graduated levels of care available from independent living, assisted living and skilled nursing care, including short term rehab and memory care. In addition, it is a non-profit facility that tries to hold down costs for the families.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Sayre Christian Village Assisted Living facility! My grandparents recently moved in there, and the staff has been so wonderful in welcoming them and taking care of them. The staff members tried to get to know them and taken extra initiative in inviting them to participate in the various activities that they have. I had the pleasure of dining in the dining room with my grandfather for lunch one afternoon, and the food was delicious and the service was great. The servers knew my grandfather by name and had his food and drink preferences memorized! The facilities there are very well-kept and nicely decorated. The director of the facility has been great in communicating with my parents when any issues have arisen. For example, one day my grandfather missed the weekly van that takes residents to the grocery store. He was upset and distressed that he had missed the trip. The director calmed him down, called my mother to make her aware of the situation, and about fifteen minutes later called her back to tell her that she had arranged for him to go with a different group later that day! Every staff member I have met has been extremely sweet and goes above and beyond to provide quality services for my grandparents. It is a relief to have my grandparents living there. I know that they have wonderful care available to them around the clock.
