Assisted Living Reviews for Armour Oaks Senior Living

I visited this facility

We were in the lobby of Armour Oaks assisted living. It was a much older building, and I was not impressed with it. It was rather old , probably a 1940 vintage or something. It just seemed dark, and the architecture back then was different. We didn't tour the assisted. We toured the independent living area, and we were impressed with it. The rooms seemed larger and there was more living area square footage wise. I like the size of the rooms. The place was impressive.

The nursing, security, and dietary are dedicated and kind to my mother and other residents. They were quick to follow up to questions and concerns. The housekeeping inside the apartments is an area in need of strengthening. Otherwise, presentation is good for guests, visitors, and residents. I have much gratitude for the Armour Oaks.

Armour Oaks is an awesome place to live. The quality of care is great. I like all my nurses and staff. They are very helpful, and they really care of us residents. My family feels safe with me being here. It’s a great place to live.

Armour Oaks Senior Living Community was dark and dingy, and if you put your parents here, you would feel like you put them in a dungeon. It was very old and outdated. The only thing good there was that they had a Medicare spend down, but other than that, I couldn't really say much about them. I didn't like anything about that place. They need to modernize a little bit.

Armour Oaks has a good neighbourhood, and it’s relatively convenient to where I live. It’s an older but quiet neighborhood, and the physical property itself has a lot of vintage charm. The rooms are smaller than I would have liked. They have private bathrooms, and the particular room that my aunt ended up moving into had a slightly larger doorframe, which was helpful because she uses a walker. The dining area is good, average, and my aunt is not thrilled with the food. This facility was the most affordable that I have looked at. They do some outings in little mini buses, they play Bingo and have Bible study classes. They also have special events like for Mother’s Day and Memorial Day. I also think their staffing is stretched, but I think they offer a good value.

When I went at Armour Oaks they showed me this room that literally was like 150 square feet and it was very small and there is no kitchen in the room. Basically her social security would be turned over to them and they would cover all of her prescriptions and would give her $35 a month spending money. That seemed ridiculous and I think my mom would never go for that. It seems a little odd to me that you have to be in the assisted living for Medicare to contribute as supposed to independent living. That is very confusing to me.

This facility has a very urban-feeling location, off of a busy, narrow street currently undergoing quite a bit of construction. There are several facilities operated by Armour on this cul-de-sac and the neighbourhood is beautiful once you turn off the main street. There are several stately brick buildings with white trim, lush lawns and big leafy trees all around. However, the interior of the Assisted Living facility was something entirely different. My guide told me the building was built in 1928, and it's very obvious. The hallways are dark, both in terms of the wood and carpet, but also as a result of poor lighting. The lighting made it a little difficult for me to gauge cleanliness, but the facility is at least tidy and appears to be pretty well maintained, given its age. I was concerned at one point that my tour included a stairwell which was extremely cluttered around the main travel path, and the fact that the building has no elevators. My guide informed me that all residents must be capable of escaping the building on their own in case of emergency and for the second-floor residents that means navigating 1928-era stairwells. The activity room and several common rooms are in the basement. The activity room looks very much like an old-style cafeteria, with exposed pipework in the ceiling and linoleum floors. I thought this room reeked of cigarette smoke so I wondered what the smoking policy was for the facility. In addition, the rooms seemed very small to me, but do have ensuite baths. They are painted a rather institutional mint blue, but the one a resident showed me felt very homey with her furniture. She was very upbeat and friendly, and said her doctor had recommended the facility, and that she loves it there and so does everyone she knows. Several other residents were very friendly as well, and the personal atmosphere was very nice. It's my impression that this facility is adequate, but makes no attempt to compete with the luxury-style facilities run by Brookdale and Sunrise in the KC area.

Armour Oaks Senior Living wasn't too bad, but the rooms were a little more cramped than what my mom requires for her wheelchair needs. The price was great. The apartments were fairly small compared to the other one we visited, and this was kind of a secondary option for us. The staff was pretty friendly.

Provider Response

With our building being older, our room suites aren't for everyone. I welcome anyone to come and tour our campus to see if we are the right fit for you or your loved one(s).

I liked Armour Oaks. My first impression was that it was very old but very clean, very well-kept and very attractive. They had antique-type furniture. I saw two studios and one two-bedroom. The studios were extremely small, and I could not handle that, but the price was right. The one that I liked was the two-bedroom. All of them were clean and well kept.

Armour Oaks Senior Living was very nice, and the rooms were really spacious. They offered a lot of amenities like the laundry and the food. The staff, Mr. Dallas, was really good and very informative. My mother couldn’t afford it, so he gave me some other places to call and tour. This is where I really wanted my mother to be.

We’ve only been at Armour Oaks Senior Living for a few weeks, but it seems to be what we are looking for. It’s very large; the building is three stories and the population seems to be rather elderly. It’s a very calm, peaceful place, and the staff is excellent. We have a one-bedroom that's larger than most of them and comes complete with kitchen, washer, and dryer. There’s a good-sized dining room and living room, a small bedroom, average-sized bathroom, and sun porch, which is an extension of the main room. The food has been very good. It’s in a fairly central location with a lot of shopping around.
