Kathleen: "We placed my mother-in-law in Brookdale Stuart. It’s the best thing we ever did, and the staff is fabulous. The food is excellent and the chef is wonderful. My mom is flourishing and doing better than ever. She does tai chi and goes on trips, shopping, picnics, to the zoo, and she’s out every single day. She’s never in her room. I think it’s expensive but worth it."

Anonymous125204750: "The staff at Amore was fantastic. The facility itself is nothing special to look at because it’s dated. The staff has a very good reputation. There are a lot of activities and a nice dining facility. The problem I had was that they only had one room open when I needed to get my father-in-law in there. "

Donna: "Atria Port St. Lucie is excellent. The rooms were nice, but a little bit small and didn't have much storage. The community was very nice, and the people were also very nice. There were people in the game room playing games, people doing laundry, and people in the dining room. They had a lot of activities. They gave us a raspberry scone when we left, and it was excellent. It was a very nice place."

What to Consider About Assisted Living in Stuart

Stuart is located on Florida's Atlantic coast in Martin County, a region where nearly one-third of the population is age 65 or older. To accommodate this large senior population, Stuart has seven assisted living facilities, with 25 in nearby cities. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs oversees the operation and licensing of assisted living facilities, or ALFs, in the state. These facilities must obtain a standard license to operate, allowing them to provide housing, meals and personal care services such as medication administration, social activities and health monitoring, for its residents.
