Customer Reviews

Need Smaller Community

I went to a lot of tours and this was just as big as the other places. The staff were good but it was not suitable for our needs. It seemed like they had a lot of residents living there. On the tour the y could have vacuumed the carpet. It seemed like it needed t be cleaned a little more.

My Tour With The Community

They were a lot different and so much bigger. They had one room available but needed an elevator to get to it. The room was a nice and very private but I thought this could be a challenge for my friend and may get lost. It is a nice facility and it looks clean. The guy who gave the tour was professional.

Called to put my mom on a waiting list for a room anywhere at armour oaks, marketing manager never called our family back after we called and left messages.

The marketing manager Dulles has never returned any phone call my family has made (5) calls! Very frustrating. Must go somewhere else for my mom now.

Caring For My Wife Well

They are caring for my wife very well and I am pleased. The community looks great and very clean. The staff is nice and very helpful. There many activities for her to choose from. She enjoys the meals, the food tastes good. I am happy with this community and would recommend it.

It Is Different

It is different than a lot of the other places that we looked at. The cleaning lady is so afraid of my loved one's cat though. Overall the Armour Oaks facility is pretty good and the food they serve is pretty good as well.

Definately Recommend

They seem to be extremely friendly to the family members and residents. Business side is a little disorganized but all else is fine.

This was a very tidy, welcoming community. I got a chance to chat with some residents and see several living options.

Review of Armour Oaks Assisted Living in Kansas City, MO

I liked how people sat in the hallway & front rooms to visit. Also, liked that medicine was dispensed. The location is great & just a few minutes from my home. Also, liked how there is assigned seating in the dining room & that something else could be ordered if they didn't like what was being served. I didn't like how smoking is allowed in designated areas of the facility. Also, might be a lot of waling & stairs depending on where your room was to get to the elevator. Didn't like how you had to step into the tub to take a shower. The doorways were too small to put a walker through them had to be turned to fit.

My mom is very happy there.

My mom is very happy there. It's very clean, and the staff is pretty friendly. They seem to have plenty of a variety of activities, and there have been no complaints about the food. It's nice and small and beautiful, it's been a good fit for us.

Tiny rooms, tiny closets, lack of life/activity, depressing.

Great skilled nursing but they allow smoking in the assited living

There are several buildings and different types of care. My mom is in the skilled nursing. I love my dad's apartment and my mom's private room. The price is good and the care is great. They really care.

I think they can take better care of the landscaping. They have beautiful landscaping but it takes keeping up. One thing that I think is abosolutely insane is in the assisted living they let people smoke on the ground level. I don't know how they get away with that but they say it's allowed by the state. I fee like there should be no smoking in any of the buildings.

Good location, good for independent l...

Good location, good for independent living. Didn't like small rooms for assisted living.
