McKnight Place Assisted Living

3 Mcknight Place, Saint Louis, MO
5 reviews
Betty247643: "McKnight Place was very nice. The rooms are OK and alright, but they're very small. It's an older place, but when they have their new building next year, they're going to turn that place into memory care, so they're in the process. The room in assisted living is a good size, but it's just one room -- no living room and separate bedroom -- but it's adequate. The dining area is very nice and designed around a courtyard, so it's really very pretty. "

Mother of Perpetual Help

7609 WATSON ROAD, Saint Louis, MO
4 reviews
Lynn680778: "Mother of Perpetual Help was fine. The only reason why I decided against it was that they had 2 small communities because of the way the building was built and the evolution. One had been a convent, so they were separated, and there were only 10 people in each one; I didn’t think that it was good for my friend, specifically. Also, it was extremely quiet. Their prices were good. "
