Assisted Living Reviews for Landmark at Oceanview

July 30, 2015

I visited this facility

We were able to visit. This place was our first choice because mom liked it. We found that the residents there were very relaxed and very interactive with one another. We love the appearance and the ambiance of the apartments. It was a very warm and welcoming place. They told us all of the activities and showed us the schedule of activities as well. They also showed us the menu so that we would know what kind of meals there were serving. They also told us about the transportation options and the fact that they have a dentist and a doctor on site. They also went over the price list with us.

I visited this facility

I was impressed. I liked the way it looked. It was homey; it had a lot of character. It didn't look like a hospital or an institution of any kind. The rooms were spacious. There was a good selection of different sizes. The building is a renovated school that was originally built in the 1800s. They've done a beautiful job with it. The director was very nice and very helpful and gave me her personal cell number if I needed anything. I would recommend going to look at it.
