The Oaks of Houma seems to be about the average retirement home. People who live there seem to be content with the place, although it is costly, like most private homes. My grandmother lived here for a few years, and she said it wasn't totally terrible, but it wasn't a walk in the park either. I guess that can be said for all nursing homes, no matter what you pay or how fancy they are. The place tries to look home-like but in all honesty it falls short and still comes out looking like a glorified hospital room. The staff seems to care about the people there and do a good job at keeping hygiene by the residents up, the place hardly ever has that urine smell that so many retirement homes do.
