Aside from the Covid stuff, there's lot of rules in place because of that, they seem to be pretty competent. They provide everything our loved one needs, and he seems to be happy here. He's fully mentally competent, so he would tell us if he thought something was wrong. They provide meals, laundry, activities, and they have a nurse there 24 hours a day. So if anything comes up, they have someone to assess the situation before they would call an ambulance or anything. They do a good job here.

This was the most stressful decisions I've had to face in many years. [name removed] was the first person to contact me after my mom fell and was in skilled care. After it was determined that my mother qualified for assisted living, I chose Brookdale. I talked with many, many AL facilities but kept going back to Brookdale. It's small, quiet, and well kept. My mother has prospered there. They have activities everyday, the food is great, and my mom's room is nice. Now that the pandemic is waning, they are doing outings like lunch and shopping. I sleep well at night knowing that my mom is safe and sound. The staff really does care for these folks. Also, the price was very reasonable compared to the others I considered.

On my tour, I only met the sales person. She was great and gave a really good tour. The facility was far closer to my home, so I would have liked for my loved one to go there. But their reviews were horrendous. They did have a new executive director, sales person, and nurse. But I just felt based on the complaints I read about the staff, unless they were going to fire all the caretakers, there wouldn't be the complete culture change that was necessary. They were cheaper than the place we chose, in addition to being closer, so I’m definitely going to check back there after some time has passed to see what changes might have taken place.

We are very happy with our experience at The Blake. We chose this facility because it is smaller and there are less residents here which we thought would fit his needs better.

Communication is the biggest thing for us and they have been great at keeping us updated through email/text/phone calls. I would recommend to others looking.

Making the decision to move my mother in law into an assisted living facility was gut wrenching, especially during Covid. But it bacame obvious she wasn't getting what she needed in my home. Sometimes love isn't enough. Once we made the decision Lancaster Grove helped us transition her quickly. Every week when we go visit her, she tells us how happy she is there. She stays busy with so many activities and making friends. It's been the absolute best decision. If you are looking, I know how hard it is. But I can honestly tell you Lancaster Grove is Amazing!
