I am/was a resident of this facility I moved into Desoto Palms because of the location and size. We can sit outside in the sun, and a lot of people play bingo. They serve three meals a day and have a library, a game room, activities room, living room, a beauty salon, and laundry. The staff is quick to respond, always pleasant, and smiling. They anticipate your needs and will provide transportation for your doctors' appointments. However, they have very rigid meal time.

I visited this facility I visited DeSoto Palms. It was nice, seemed OK, and had a lot of nice apartments. It was kind of closed-up and quiet. We only saw one room. The staff was OK. It was just an OK place. I don't think I'd be comfortable there. It seemed cold. The price was ridiculous. For respite care, a place to put her when we have to go away, you have to do seven days at $185 a day, and if you don't stay 7 days, you still have to pay the full amount. If I only needed to put her there for two days, I'd have to pay for s... read more

I visited this facility I thought DeSoto was lovely and it would be my first choice. The grounds are very well-kept, the interior is very attractive, and actually they’re redoing all of it. The staff was very helpful, and you didn’t feel she was trying to sell you something. It is independent living but you can have service which is what we will do. The dining is very lovely, they have a real chef, and the menu looked interesting. Some of units have kitchens of different sizes, some are full, some kitchenettes. The floor pla... read more

I visited this facility DeSoto Palms had nice rooms, but the only one they get on Medicaid is a shared room with a shared bathroom. My mother wanted her own bathroom. Their dining room was like hotel-restaurant dining. They had the same basic activities, i.e., card playing, bingo, trips, and going out to eat.

I visited this facility DeSoto Palms was lovely. It was like a hotel. The rooms and the lobby were beautiful. Their dining area was like eating in a 5-star hotel. I really liked that. However, my brother decided that he needed more care than what they could offer because they had nurses there, but they were like 7 to 7. They would put you in bed, but there's nobody there at night until the morning expect for the resident manager, who was always there, and my brother might need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night. ... read more

Gorgeous facility. The follow up by some of the staff, was very impressive. They were very, very nice and very welcoming. After my visit, they checked in with phone calls and everything. I thought that was very good. The woman there also gave me suggestions for the possibility for a VA benefits. My father makes too much money, but she was very helpful, giving me contact people. One of the things I liked about them was that even if they knew that you weren't going to move into their community, they were still willing to help ... read more
