Assisted Living Reviews for Joy Assisted Living

December 03, 2012

I visited this facility

The facilities appeared to be clean and comfortable. Everything was well-maintained, nothing seemed neglected or in disrepair. The rooms were a bit on the small-ish side, but not so greatly as to be uncomfortable or unlivable. The grounds were well kept and the atmosphere was anything but dreary, with the open windows allowing some sunshine into the building. I will say that they seemed a bit understaffed. It took somewhat of a wait for my great grandmother to receive attention when she asked for it, and there was another elderly woman in the cafeteria asking for help but to no avail. All she said was, "Help me", over and over again but I never saw anyone attend to her. They just needed more nurses on duty and this could have been avoided. Either that or the nurses were not particularly attentive, which would reflect rather poorly on the organization overall.

My overall impression of the facility was, in fact, very positive. It was quite unlike the stereotypical idea of an assisted living home. The general atmosphere was cheery and upbeat (possibly because it was a holiday.) All of the staff members I interacted with seemed genuinely kind and caring. They were quick to respond to the needs of the residents and did so cheerfully. Judging by the attitudes of the residents, they were well cared-for and were enjoying themselves while living in the home. I was able to have conversations with several of the residents and when I asked them questions about their live in the assisted living home they responded positively, and told me about the various activities they participated in. The atmosphere is best described as homey or cozy, which I think made the residents feel comfortable. My only negative comment is that it seemed slightly understaffed. It wasn't a huge problem, but the workers seemed slightly stressed because they were caring for so many people at once.

About Joy Assisted Living

Welcome to Joy Assisted Living Community

Since opening in 1995, Joy Assisted Living has been family owned and operated. Keeping things in the family allows us to become deeply involved with the residents and give each the personal attention they deserve. In everything we do, we strive to make our residents feel like part of the family.

Joy Assisted Living is not a nursing home. We recognize that what most seniors really need is supervision, support, and occasional assistance. Joy Assisted Living offers gentle assistance with daily living activities from a qualified staff, 24 hours a day. We specialize in providing just the right level of supportive care. Our team is able to meet the needs of seniors, while still leaving them the freedom and independence that they desire.

The building is handicapped accessible and conveniently all on one level, so there is no frustrating stairs or elevators. In 2001, we added an addition to the building that includes a private dining room, multi-functional activity room, and more spacious suites.

Our team is able to meet the needs of seniors, while still leaving them the freedom and independence that they desire.

Joy Assisted Living offers an array of rooming options to fit every budget, including private and shared accommodations, as well as exceptional suites. Each room is fully furnished, unless the resident wishes to bring their personal furniture. All rooms are equipped with an intercom call system that is linked directly to the nurse’s station, so help is always just a call away. Rooms are available with private or shared bathrooms, and each room is provided with extended cable television service.

Residents of Joy Assisted Living enjoy social opportunities that those living independently may not have. As part of our assisted living community, each resident can meet new friends and people with similar beliefs and values. Our new activity room features an oven, games, books, a television, a DVD player, and a VCR. It’s here that you will find residents playing bingo, watching movies, playing games, and more.

This multi-functional area is great for socializing, but we also believe it is important to offer the chance to get out and explore the community. We have a full-time activities coordinator who plans trips to baseball games, Branson theaters, shopping malls, and other fun places in the Ozarks.

At Joy Assisted Living, tasty, nutritious meals are carefully prepared and served in our two spacious dining rooms. All meals are prepared according to a menu created and overseen by a professionally licensed dietician. This insures that all health needs are met, and allows us to accommodate special dietary needs.

Thank you for visiting Joy Assisted Living Community. Please give us call to schedule a free tour of our wonderful community. Thank you.

What Makes Us Special

There is no big, greedy corporation managing our facility. This is one of the reasons we are able to keep costs low. At Joy Assisted Living, we care about our residents' quality of life more than the bottom line.
