Detailed Information

St. Augustine Plantation, Tallahassee FL

The St. Augustine Plantation is a senior living residence in Tallahassee, Florida. The community offers a wide variety of long-term care programs, including assisted living, independent living, and memory care. Short-term services - including respite care - are available by request when the facility has vacancies. If an older adult receiving non-medical home care needs a temporary caregiver, St. Augustine Plantation's respite care program may be a suitable solution. 

St. Augustine Plantation's staff are the heart of their exceptional care routines, offering compassionate, patient care for all residents - regardless of their needs. Each of the assisted living, independent living, and memory care community's residents are welcome to the following long-term care services, included in their monthly fees: 

  • Assistance with their activities of daily living

  • Meal preparation

  • Medication assistance

  • Incontinence management

  • 24-hour access to caregivers and staff

While the community provides a wide variety of senior care services, they do not offer skilled nursing care on-site. St. Augustine Plantation is not licensed to provide health care services and skilled nursing care, as it is a community-based care facility. 

Many seniors choose St. Augustine Plantation for their assisted living facility as an alternative to non-medical home care, but the community's memory care community is another popular draw for residents in the St. Augustine and Jacksonville area. When older adults begin to experience memory loss or are diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, they may need assistance completing their activities of daily living. At St. Augustine Plantation's memory care facilities, seniors can receive patient assistance from the staff as they adjust to living with memory loss. The community's caregivers understand how frustrating a big transition can be for people moving into dementia care, and work hard to make the process as stress-free as possible. 

In addition to the St. Augustine Plantation's exceptional Alzheimer's care services and other community-based care programs, the residence's on-site amenities are an excellent feature. If meal preparation is challenging for a resident, or they choose not to prepare meals, they can enjoy a restaurant-style meal in the dining room. If they want a chance to be active, they can spend time in the community's fitness center. These are only the beginning of St. Augustine's senior living amenities, making it a fun and fulfilling place for people to spend their retirement years. 

Families considering assisted living and memory care facilities in Jacksonville/St. Augustine FL area can tour the St. Augustine Plantation to learn more about the community. The tour guides are happy to answer questions about their assisted living, independent living, and dementia care services as they show guests the apartments, common areas, fitness center, and dining room. Tours are free, and St. Augustine Plantation invites them to a complimentary lunch during their time at the senior living facility.

The healthcare staff do a very good job. Maintenance always do a great job with the decorations, dusting, and keeping the place current. The music program, where the guy comes in, is great. It doesn't require a lot of effort and it's uplifting. The chef does a great job of keeping the food interesting. He makes his rounds to check on everyone and makes adjustment based on what people like. Management is on top of things, handled the hurricane really well, and are super responsive. They're available by text and have jumped in to solve problems minutes after texting, even at night. They're superb. Overall, she feels safe and comfortable. I am so grateful to have the help.

We're leaving because we're moving out of state, but we're going to miss it and it was the hardest decision to make. The management is very responsive and caring. The laundry girl keeps the drawers clean, closets clean and folds clothes better than I could, so she is awesome. Maintenance always gets things done and the male nurse is wonderful. You'll also never find another Memory Care place that is designed as well, it's very airy. The community is marvelous.

Megan the manager is always there when I need her. Everybody is very helpful and management is wonderful. There are so many activities to choose from and so many opportunities for the patients. Transportation has been wonderful and the care givers are very positive. The nurses are stellar. They are absolutely wonderful. The willingness to take time out of their extremely busy day and call family members when there are issues is great. The fact that St. Augustine's memory care is small and there are enough care givers that genuinely are able to care for the residents. It is really a great place.

You can't put a price on the exceptional care. I can't say enough good about the place. Management was able to assist us and very easily able to transfer my dad from living at home to the facility. The dining staff go out of the way to please my dad, they're top of the line. The care staff are even better than everyone else and have always been available to him.

If I was an elderly person that needed to be in an assisted living I think it would be a fun place to be. I have found it to be positive. I feel comfortable with her being there and I enjoy visiting her there. We have eaten a few meals with mom and I liked it. The chef there is a super nice guy and seems to want to please the residents with the food.

The apartment design is safe, that was a major factor in choosing it. Management is easy to work with and lets me know when there is an issue, you couldn�t ask for better. The dining area is very nice, linen table clothes, silverware that's metal, the atmosphere is good. The community is beautiful and it smells good. They have lots of activities and outings, the activities are above and beyond in Memory Care. I've seen the care givers interacting with residents and they genuinely care, are always available, doing what is needed, and appear to enjoy their job. I have been exceptionally happy.

Everybody on staff has been helpful. The process to get her moved in went very smooth. I have been very impressed with the meals they offer. She gets real fruit and vegetables, it isn't something out of a can. I thanked the lady doing the laundry for the good job she is doing. Mom's clothes were hung up right side out and folded properly. That has been impressive.

I don't think there is any Memory Care building as good as this, as far as the layout and light. I have seen other places and even the hospice nurse has said this is by far the best. I think they have worked really hard on things, from my point of view. Darrell is the best nurse ever in the whole world.

I feel they did an exceptional job with my uncle. They are compassionate, and bent over backwards to help him and me. Dining was wonderful.The care givers were wonderful, the staff was great. I am just really grateful they were there for him, for us, and I wish he was still there. I think they were charging too little. It's almost half the cost of places by me. He had a huge room, it was just beautiful. I felt he was safe.

Management is very approachable and very receptive. I've had concerns that I've spoken with management about and they've been very on top of it. The healthcare staff are very good, very approachable and they know when to give hugs. The servers are very friendly and they all know her and take care of her. My sister has been out on some outings and that's been great. I remember asking them about the safety of the bus and they said they're very careful about who drives and how the vehicle was maintained. They're giving excellent quality services and they're not charging as much as many places do.

The price has been very good and management has been attentive to things we have asked for. The staff keep the residents pretty entertained. If something needed to be repaired, maintenance would fix it that day. The building is very nice and they have some phenomenal care staff. We have been very pleased and my mother has done very well here.

I love the huge open room of the Memory Care section, and Laura in sales was genuine and nice, so I moved my mother in. The care givers are wonderful. I don�t know how they do it. When we were first visiting the food was good and the activities are good. They've got an Activities Director there every day. If no one is interested they try something else, try to get them outside. Maintenance hung her mirror and pictures, they were good. I have two other people who visit her, and when they walk in, my one friend, the female, tells me it's a nice place and it smells nice. It's a beautiful place. We feel good, and we�re satisfied with what she is getting for the price we pay.

I toured a bunch of facilities when I was looking for a place for my uncle but, when I drove into the lot of the Plantation I had the overwhelming feeling this was the place. There isn't one thing I can say bad about this place. My trust factor with the facility is just blown out of the ceiling. Everything was so good in the dining room. The chef was wonderful and has a great personality. All the people that bring out the food are lovely. The activities are wonderful. They have a book club and just got a pool table. They have chapel and the priest comes out to see them. It is great. We get emailed the monthly calendar and newsletter so we can keep up with what he is doing. The transportation service rocks! They take him to his doctor's appointment. They give a full report when he gets back from the doctor with what all changes were done. I don't even have to call the doctor they have it all taken care of. I trust the caregivers wholeheartedly. I trust them more than I trust my parents let's put it that way.

The management staff have gone above and beyond to help us and make sure mom is comfortable. They have really reached out to see if there was anything we needed. She likes the food here. They will come and get her when they play a game in activities they know she likes. In terms of her care, I haven't heard any negative from her so that is a good thing.

The mangement staff are just wonderful. I have not had any problems with the adminsitration. I am very impressed with the food. It is excellent. I had stayed there for three days and I got a feel for all three days and it was very good. They just got someone in that is doing the laundry and she is doing a beautiful job. I am very impressed. The housekeeping is very good. The young man who is the driver is wonderful. It was a very postive experience. The nurses are great. They are wonderful.

I moved my dad in because there are a smaller number of residents in Memory Care than the average in the area, and the move-in went very smoothly. The presentation of the food in Memory Care seems to be good and we�re satisfied with the service dad gets there. I think the activities are appropriate for Memory Care individuals, there is always something going on. The managers have been very responsive so far. There have been times when I've called to speak with Megan her voice box was full, but if I text her she gets right back to me. Maintenance is very accommodating and nice, and the entire place is well-maintained. The care staff is very good. These are people who feel it's a calling, not just a job. They had some illnesses there this week so came through and cleaned everything with bleach every two hours. They sent out an email to let us know. Dad is also health-compromised so I know they are taking the very best possible care of these individuals. They always have someone there for the patients. I think it's a very good value; you get what you�re paying for. I feel it's the best place I could find for my father.

My mother is sharing a room at St. Augustine and there is plenty of room. The dining seems to be pretty good, I've eaten there a few times, and the activities staff seem to keep the residents busy.

It's absolutely a good fit for my loved one. It's a nice apartment, actually a really nice little apartment he has. Maintenance is pretty good and laundry is good, no problems with that. They have music, live, which is always nice, and he likes the food. Management is excellent. They�re all really good and responsive. The care givers do a good job. The staff are all kind, friendly, and respectful. Anything I have brought to their attention they've been on top of addressing. We really appreciate all they do.

The apartment Mom had was well laid out. She had a two room one bedroom apartment and that was nice. Megan, the manager, was incredible. She would address all our needs. She engaged Mom and made sure she was engaged in the programs. Anytime, anything comes up like the hurricane she would keep us informed of what was going on. That way we could talk to Mom about things so she wouldn't be surprised. Megan and her management team were very good. They communicated well and was very responsive. The dining staff was always very considerate and she always commented on how they always knew what she wanted. They would bring her tea because they knew she liked that. The young lady doing the laundry was remarkable. Mom would never put anything in the hamper so she would have to work with her to find out what she wore yesterday. She put forth the extra effort to get the right clothes in the wash. She would bring them back folded and put them on her bed. The care staff was always very aware of Mom which was nice.

I am grateful to have them. My mother is eating well and seems to like the food. The activities and housekeeping have both been fine. Anytime I ask maintenance to fix anything they get on it right away. The building is beautiful. They help me with transportation to get her to doctors� appointments. They do a good job of getting her there and waiting with her. Everyone is kind, nobody is inappropriate or anything like that. The way they handled the hurricane was outstanding. They had all the provisions they needed, the staff stayed there even with their children to ride out the storm. They did everything they could to make sure the residents weren't upset or panicked or anything. I thought it was a 100% performance in a trying situation.

The management is awesome. That is the overriding factor that I tell everybody about. The chef is awesome as well. The community has done a lot of remodeling and it is beautiful. They did an outstanding job. Maintenance is very good. He is very responsive. The driver is wonderful. If anything ever happens and he leaves it would be a huge loss. The bus recently had some things done. There is a caregiver there named Beth and she deserves some recognition. She is wonderful. I can ask her something and I can count on her that it will get done. She really cares about the people.

Every dollar spent was worthwhile. The security was fantastic without being seen. It felt and looked safe. It was great. The room that was chosen for my mom and I made it so we were both able to have a bed. We had no shared wall except for our closet. That made it so our Yorkie wasn't heard. The room was just perfect. Management was the most hands on, personable and yet efficient folks I have ever seen. Laura and Crystal came and visited my mom in the hospital to do the initial interview to make sure mom was appropriate to come here. They were both fantastic. The core management team was amazing and I could always depend on them. Everything got done in a timely and satisfactory manner. We could not go down to the dining room because of our dog. Our meals were brought to our room. I sought out the chef on a number of times due to the excellence of the quality and variety of the food. You never got the same food twice. They had the highest quality food for an assisted living. Their rosemary chicken was to die for. The staff made sure we didn't go hungry. We put out our requests on what we would like but they made sure we never missed a meal. I would go through the dining room and I always noticed how the staff treated each resident like they were John D. Rockefeller. The service was given with respect and care. One day, there was an activity going on and only one resident showed up. The staff treated that one resident like there were 100 residents there. That resident had the best time. I saw that over and over again. The housekeeping was great. I tried to wash our own stuff to help take the load off them. The staff was respectful of our space and cleaned well. The woman was amazing. She was high energy and had a big smile. She would come in and get everything she needed to get. She was always working. If anything needed to be done, she was right there and would take it. James was the head of maintenance. He was like a Pitbull. Our TV didn't work when we moved in. We moved in on a Friday night at 10pm. It took him 2 days to get the right box for our TV. He could have let it go a few days but he tried different boxes to get the right one for us. Our little fridge was iced up in the freezer part. As soon as he found that out, he sent someone up right away to take care of it. The grounds were so relaxing. They were kept terrifically nice and the grass was cut perfectly. I miss the grounds now that I am not there. You feel like a part of the family there and that starts with the curb appeal. When you pull up the driveway, you are met with an �oh wow� factor. I saw the driver interacting with the residents in the hallway. He was terrific. The whole service was good. The staff anticipated our needs and did a wonderful job. Beth and Eric went above and beyond. There were others that did too. The staff was happy. The staff that was there came through like champions. They would remember special requests and the little things. It was just wonderful. Will is the LPN and he is extraordinary. He took such great care of us. He is so dialed in. All in all you feel like family there.

I am happy and feel like it is a good value. The management team is very responsive. They all gave me their cell phone numbers. They all text and when I text them they text me right back. My mom and I both love the food there. I think they have a great selection of activities offered. The maintenance staff is great and very responsive. I think the care staff has been great. She has a nurse named William and I really like him. There is another nurse aide named Eric and my mom loves him. All of the people have been great.

I think this is a great place for my mom because it is near where she used to live so she is familiar with the surroundings and it feels like home for her. Every time I have talked to management and had any concerns they have handled it immediately. My mother has been pleased with it but she recently got out of the hospital and doesn't have much of an appetite. Right now they don't have much that she is interested in as a result, but prior to that she really enjoyed the food. They have been bending over backwards to try to find something that she would enjoy eating. The activities provided at this community are appropriate for the community. The house cleaning seems to be good and anytime I have asked for additional cleaning, they have taken care of it. Maintenance has gone way above the call of duty before to help us out and get things straight. We used the transportation one time and they were very prompt and courteous. I have been very happy with the caregivers I have come into contact with.

My brother made the choice to move mom into St. Augustine Plantation, and he said it was a lot based on price. I've eaten there twice, it was good food and the servers were very friendly. Management is okay, as are the activities. Housekeeping is good, and I think most of the caregivers are okay. Mom's safe, comfortable, and happy with her apartment, so the value is good too.

Every penny spent at St. Augustine Plantation is given back to me and more to my family. The management staff are hands on, yet professional and incredibly capable, yet at the same time personable. Some people will take their heart out to help you, but they don't get anything done at a business level and here they have been able to straddle that, bringing both sides in when both sides where incredibly important to both my mother and I. I am amazed with the dining. We haven't been able to dine in the dining room because my mom is ill, but I told the Chef that it's incredible to be able to produce on the level that he and the kitchen does. The Director told me that when she took the job, she wanted everyone to have restaurant quality meals, so she has digested that information and went through with it. Having that food comes in fresh and hot looking like that makes your day. I watch the servers and for each resident that lives here, they change their approach and you can see that. I can see from the residents' body language of how well that it is received. The activities are very clearly listed each day and the staff makes an effort to make sure the residents know what is going on. I see housekeeping come through once a week doing a very thorough job and the maintenance man is a bulldog. I have worked at Disney and Universal, but these guys are batting a thousand with customer service. Regarding the care, they're just so wonderful and they change as our needs change, they modify and anticipate so it's been a really pleasant experience for our family.

My sister has lived her for a year and a half. I think her apartment is easy enough for her to move around in without it being too clutterered. The activities they have are outstanding. They are very well planned and I think they have a very good variety of activities to meet the needs of my sister. The maintenance team makes sure things are well kept in the building. All of her medication is given to her in a timely and correct way from the care staff. I think they are right on top of things there.

Management was always accessible and you don't find that in many places, usually you have to make that an appointment, it couldn't have been any better. The dining service, housekeeping and transportation services were excellent, we couldn't have been any happier. Maintenance is fantastic, they were very helpful. I know all the staff there and they're like family to me, I can't say enough good. When Will left his shift at midnight, he went to check on my father at the hospital, his patient at St. Augustine, and called me at 1am and told me what his situation was, that's just unbelievable. I can't say enough good about St. Augustine Plantation and it looks like a five star hotel, it's beautiful.

The reason why we chose this community was because of the front porch and the beautiful rocking chairs out front since we spent our lives sitting on the porch in our home in Savannah. The food is more interesting and a little more innovative. The person that is in charge of the activities is absolutely ingenious and wonderful. There is an amazing amount of music that comes in every week, they have a variety of music and it's very special. Housekeeping does an amazing job and honors your privacy. The lady that does the laundry could not be any more wonderful. The doctors and nurses have been wonderful.

I really feel that my dad is getting his moneys worth here. He has a great room that looks out onto some greenery, the food they serve is really good. He goes out onto the porch to socialize. For an assisted living place this is great. It always smells clean and looks clean. I think it is a pretty building with flowers and nicely decorated. It doesn't have that elderly people smell. The tranportation service takes him to and from all of his doctors appointments. I feel very comfortable about this and thankful. It has been going off without a hitch.

My mother has a lovely room, a very spacious bathroom and a nice little closet, I'm very pleased with that. I've had the most contact with Megan in managment and she is a very personable and kind individual, she listens. She's an excellent lady. The dining is absolutely spectacular. They have a choice, it's well balanced, there's a nice vegetable and salad, there's always some kind of dessert. The desserts are good too, the chef does a fantastic job, they always have a choice. Laundry is wonderful, she does a very good job. The entire facility is just spotless all the time.

I think the management staff is respectful and I feel like they are knowledgeable. The food is good. They offer things for the residents to do. My dad has been on a few outings which he enjoys. One of the drivers gave his personal cell phone number to my mom because she was going to meet them at the doctor's office. That was great. They are pretty responsive as caregivers go.

I think that the management staff are always respectful. I have had some instances where I had to go to them immediately and I was able to talk to someone. They have been good at fixing my husband things in the dining room. It looks like there is a good variety. The housekeeper we have is very good and very thorough. If I ask for something to be done, maintenance is good to help and take care of situations. They are all very caring. I haven't had any noteable concerns.

When we moved my mom into the community the management didn't talk about her, they talked to her and that impressed me. She reports the food is good and she gets good service. Mom says they clean really well and coming from her is high praise cause she is picky. Everything that we've asked for has been dealt with most the time in a couple hours. I am thrilled and grateful beyond belief. I like the size of it. It doesn't have that institutional feel. It has that home feel, and I couldn't be more pleased that we found this community for this stage of her life.

My parents both live at the community and I must say the price is fair. There are several between the nurses and the techs that are real good. They seem like they're constantly working on the building so it doesn't have that disarray feel to it. They are also currently under renovation, which is nice. The laundry is good as well. Overall, everyone has been accessible and responsive.

My father has been at the community since 2017 and the price is fair comparatively to others. For dining, he eats in his room and he seems to like the food though. He is in a wheelchair and doesn't participate in the activities, but the always encourage him to do so. The nurses and staff are all pleasant whenever I have interacted with them.

The care our mom, Beverly, received during her stay in Memory Care was outstanding. What Megan, as executive director, did for our family was above and beyond anything we expected. Mom stayed at SAP until the end of her life and received incredibly loving care from the MC staff. We will be forever grateful!

I am happy and feel like it is a good value. The management team is very responsive. They all gave me their cell phone numbers. They all text and when I text them they text me right back. My mom and I both love the food there. I think they have a great selection of activities offered. The maintenance staff is great and very responsive. I think the care staff has been great. She has a nurse named William and I really like him. There is another nurse aide named Eric and my mom loves him. All of the people have been great.

I think this is a great place for my mom because it is near where she used to live so she is familiar with the surroundings and it feels like home for her. Every time I have talked to management and had any concerns they have handled it immediately. My mother has been pleased with it but she recently got out of the hospital and doesn't have much of an appetite. Right now they don't have much that she is interested in as a result, but prior to that she really enjoyed the food. They have been bending over backwards to try to find something that she would enjoy eating. The activities provided at this community are appropriate for the community. The house cleaning seems to be good and anytime I have asked for additional cleaning, they have taken care of it. Maintenance has gone way above the call of duty before to help us out and get things straight. We used the transportation one time and they were very prompt and courteous. I have been very happy with the caregivers I have come into contact with.

I love the management, they're very helpful, they're a great crew. Every time I've been there the food has been very good. The laundry services are wonderful, she does an excellent job. Maintenance has done a lot of upkeep and painting and has done a real good job. The healthcare staff look after her very well, I'm very pleased, the nurses are wonderful. They always get back to me when I have a question, they're very good. Crystal is a wonderful head person. I'm very pleased; I can't say enough nice things about it.

My brother made the choice to move mom into , and he said it was a lot based on price. I've eaten there twice, it was good food and the servers were very friendly. Management is okay, as are the activities. Housekeeping is good, and I think most of the caregivers are okay. Mom's safe, comfortable, and happy with her apartment, so the value is good too.

Every penny spent at St. Augustine Plantation is given back to me and more to my family. The management staff are hands on, yet professional and incredibly capable, yet at the same time personable. Some people will take their heart out to help you, but they don't get anything done at a business level and here they have been able to straddle that, bringing both sides in when both sides where incredibly important to both my mother and I. I am amazed with the dining. We haven't been able to dine in the dining room because my mom is ill, but I told the Chef that it's incredible to be able to produce on the level that he and the kitchen does. The Director told me that when she took the job, she wanted everyone to have restaurant quality meals, so she has digested that information and went through with it. Having that food comes in fresh and hot looking like that makes your day. I watch the servers and for each resident that lives here, they change their approach and you can see that. I can see from the residents' body language of how well that it is received. The activities are very clearly listed each day and the staff makes an effort to make sure the residents know what is going on. I see housekeeping come through once a week doing a very thorough job and the maintenance man is a bulldog. I have worked at Disney and Universal, but these guys are batting a thousand with customer service. Regarding the care, they're just so wonderful and they change as our needs change, they modify and anticipate so it's been a really pleasant experience for our family.

Management was always accessible and you don't find that in many places, usually you have to make that an appointment, it couldn't have been any better. The dining service, housekeeping and transportation services were excellent, we couldn't have been any happier. Maintenance is fantastic, they were very helpful. I know all the staff there and they're like family to me, I can't say enough good. When Will left his shift at midnight, he went to check on my father at the hospital, his patient at St. Augustine, and called me at 1am and told me what his situation was, that's just unbelievable. I can't say enough good about and it looks like a five star hotel, it's beautiful.

My sister has lived her for a year and a half. I think her apartment is easy enough for her to move around in without it being too clutterered. The activities they have are outstanding. They are very well planned and I think they have a very good variety of activities to meet the needs of my sister. The maintenance team makes sure things are well kept in the building. All of her medication is given to her in a timely and correct way from the care staff. I think they are right on top of things there.

The reason why we chose this community was because of the front porch and the beautiful rocking chairs out front since we spent our lives sitting on the porch in our home in Savannah. The food is more interesting and a little more innovative. The person that is in charge of the activities is absolutely ingenious and wonderful. There is an amazing amount of music that comes in every week, they have a variety of music and it's very special. Housekeeping does an amazing job and honors your privacy. The lady that does the laundry could not be any more wonderful. The doctors and nurses have been wonderful.

I really feel that my dad is getting his moneys worth here. He has a great room that looks out onto some greenery, the food they serve is really good. He goes out onto the porch to socialize. For an assisted living place this is great. It always smells clean and looks clean. I think it is a pretty building with flowers and nicely decorated. It doesn't have that elderly people smell. The tranportation service takes him to and from all of his doctors appointments. I feel very comfortable about this and thankful. It has been going off without a hitch.

My mother has a lovely room, a very spacious bathroom and a nice little closet, I'm very pleased with that. I've had the most contact with Megan in managment and she is a very personable and kind individual, she listens. She's an excellent lady. The dining is absolutely spectacular. They have a choice, it's well balanced, there's a nice vegetable and salad, there's always some kind of dessert. The desserts are good too, the chef does a fantastic job, they always have a choice. Laundry is wonderful, she does a very good job. The entire facility is just spotless all the time.

The person-to-person interface is invaluable. The price is very reasonable for all the amenities they provide. Management has been very attentive and proactive with providing us information. The chef actually visited my father in the hospital to learn about his nutritional needs. The caregivers checked on him during his hospital stay. He has a very good rapport with them. They all know his name, any member of the staff can give us information when we ask.

The community presents itself well and I'm proud for people to visit my mom there. It's probably one of the best. The manager was always open and accessible to any problems I had. The maintenance men try to make things look nice every day. The bus driver was very pleasant. Those ladies in housekeeping are wonderful. They talk to you and don't ignore you. By in large, it has been a good experience.

Any problem I've had, they've taken care of it almost immediately. I have the phone number of the director, the sales and marketing lady, and the head nurse. And they told me to call whenever I need them, and they seem to mean it. The nurse has been delightful. She's been helpful. We're still getting my husband's paperwork done, so she's left me notes and envelopes of stuff, so she's been very responsive. I would recommend the facility to others, and already have. I actually found this place because another facility that was too full recommended this place to us. I visited 9 facilities, and this place was the best for him by far.

The thing that impresses me is that the management doesn't change there. Her stay at St. Augustine Plantation was great and the staff was wonderful. She said that she never met an employee there who wasn't nice. There was always so much going on that was entertaining. My mother didn't take much part in that like she should, but that was her forte. St. Augustine Plantations was all immaculate. I was never there when they weren't cleaning a floor, shampooing a floor, or doing something. The food is wonderful and the staff does an incredible job. I think she'll be back soon.
