Assisted Living Reviews for Green Tree

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is currently living with me and we're now taking care of her living arrangements. We do have one that's close to me that we visited, The Green Tree. We're interested and if we decide to do that we'll move her there. It's about half a mile from my home. It's a relatively new facility. It's very, very nice. The staff is very friendly. They have really nice rooms and it's in a nice location. It's really perfect! We really liked it. Everyone we spoke to just spoke so highly of the facility. They were all very pleased and there were people that have been there since they opened the facility for about less than 10 years. The facility is relatively new. If ever my mom will be placed there I think she would be happy to be in that community. I'd be happy to recommend Green Tree of Sand Springs to others.

I visited this facility

I am shopping for an assisted living community for my grandmother and Green Tree is near the top of my list when she is ready. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff was nice. We got to observe them interacting with residents and the residents seemed to love them. There were several people enjoying the common living rooms and they all seemed pretty friendly. It is a place that I could see my grandmother enjoying. The ability to meet a vegetarian diet is a plus. The scenery outside is very nice and that is where my grandmother likes to sit when the weather allows. If I could add something to make it perfect, it would be a pool and hot tub. It is very close to my parents and other aunts and uncles, so it would be convenient for family to visit. Having staff available at all times will make us all feel better that she is taken care of.

I visited this facility

Green Tree at Sand Springs is in Sand Springs, where we happened to have a trip planned. So while we were out there, we visited this facility as a living option for my friend. The adjacent meadows were quiet and peaceful, providing a park-like atmosphere. The nearby Coyote Trail Hills provide a nice walking path that the seniors can use with staff. They do offer memory care which we are interested in since my friend has some of those issues -- though he is mostly just forgetful. Still it is nice to know they can accommodate that, should his mental capacity deteriorate. The interior is really elegantly designed which was refreshing to see, since most of the places we've been feature early American and colonial style furnishings. You can also see the beautiful wooded hills through many of the expansive windows. It is quite picturesque- which adds to the overall tranquility of the environment. The residents enjoy regular outings for shopping, entertainment and cultural events. The dining rooms were very pretty and the food presented well. It is clear that the chef is prideful of his creations. If residents prefer, they may order room service to their apartments. There is plenty of food to choose from off of the cafe menu, as well. The residents we saw all looked very happy to be living in this environment and some even took the time to tell us so. Definitely a five star facility!

Green Tree Reflections Memory Care Residence

Dedication to Service

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer's or other memory impairments is a very personal, loving dedication to service. It requires service for specific and individual needs.

More often, the resident with memory loss needs assistance with life's daily activities including personal care but may not have an acute medical condition requiring around the clock skilled nursing or instruction. Finding that unique combination of physical setting and specialized care is a journey traveled by many families.

The Reflections Program

At Reflections, our trained staff works closely with family members and friends to assemble a "Life History" identifying the personal experiences of each resident's life.

Through the "Life History," we get to know the personality behind the person, fostering a one-to-one association more like "friend to friend" rather than "staff to patient." Details and events from your loved one's past become "shared" memories and experiences serving as a foundation for activities, communication, and the development of friendships built on support, understanding and mutual respect.

Base Monthly Services
  • Laundry Services - personal and linen
  • Housekeeping
  • 24 hour-a-day specially trained staff
  • Three daily meals plus snacks
  • Tailored activities - therapeutic and recreational
