Assisted Living Reviews for River Oaks Assisted Living & Memory Care

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have found a facility and my loved ones are already in. It's called River Oaks. The staff is extremely helpful. The rooms are very well laid out, and they are exactly what we were looking for. They are very, very accommodating. We ate there twice before we selected this facility. We came in both times unannounced, and we were delighted with the quantity and quality of the meals at both times. The dining room is what I expected because there are not a lot of memory care folks there, so it was laid out, and the service was superb. They have a scheduled morning and afternoon activity depending on whether they're in memory care or not. What impressed me most about this facility is the people and also because it is relatively new facility, so it is clean and well kept.

I visited this facility

I visited River Oaks on and off for a couple of weeks. I thought they were very nice, and the food is good, but I thought they were understaffed. I didn't like that fact they will shower my mom every two to three days whereas the other facility will do it as often as you requested. They were helpful, but I just didn't feel that they have enough staff for the residents. The rooms and apartment are very clean. I wasn't there when they did bingo, but they were playing games with some balls, they hit the balloon with a fly swatter, and they read to them. Some of the activities were very nice. I just wasn't sure that it was the right place based on some of the things that I thought my mother needed. Also, I didn’t like the fact that they would only check on the residents every three or four hours every night. It is a nice facility, but I just felt they needed more staff.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mother is really not doing that well, and she needs to be around friends, so my brother and I looked at a place up here in Coppell about three and a half miles from my house. So we ended up putting them there because it seems to make the most sense. It was reasonably priced, and it was just the right thing for them. It is fairly new -- about a year and a half old. It is called River Oaks Assisted Living & Memory Care, and it is wonderful. They have their own little apartment. It looks like a hotel when you walk in. They deliver meals a couple of times a day, and they have five or six activities a day. They have exercise classes, bingo, cards, and arts and crafts. The people are just great. I think the people are really friendly. They have a lot of activities, they are close to their friends, and it is just a really good environment for them.

My mom and dad settle in River Oaks Assisted Living. Between the four facilities that we visited, this is the nicest facility for the money. They have services like medication, showers, change of clothes, and daily feeding. They have the best staff to people ratio, and it has the newest condition.
