Offer a real peace of mind

We moved my loved one from another facility and they worked with us and were able to get the move done very quickly. For what they do and what we pay for, I think that they do an excellent job. She is in the memory care unit and it is a very attractive area. It is small enough to where she does not have to go far to get to her meals and things like that. They have activities going on at least twice a day and they really try to keep the residents engaged and maintain their memory. They have provided all of the services that were promised to us very well and we have been pleased. I would recommend Bay Lake Community to others looking.... Read more

Attended event

First impression-home and not some facility. The lobby is well decorated and just feels like a place to be. The rooms at Bay Lake are top notch. All staff are caring and very attentive to the needs of residents. They provide fun and engaging activities like bingo, visiting car shows and paint and sips. In addition to the wonderful activities, they have a whole room for study at RUI University that allows residents to continue their life long passion for learning. Breakfast, Lunch and dinner are always well prepared and delicious. They also take pets and have a program called Leash on Life where residents can be assisted with the daily tasks of owning a pet. Located on Shore drive in Virginia Beach families have a plethora of attractions and places to visit while visiting a loved one. You can smell the Chesapeake Bay in the air from the open air terraces. Overall this place is 2nd to none from the rooms to the amenities it sets the standard for what all seniors earn and deserve.

This community was too far away for where I wanted my loved one to be and was not the right environment that I was looking for. We liked it it just did not work for what all we needed.

I found Bay Lake to be quite lovely. Aesthetically it was just beautiful. My overall impression was that it was a very nice community. It was just too expensive.

Awesome community!

I am truly honored to be the Executive Director of the Bay Lake Community! The staff & residents are friendly and engaging from the moment you walk into the community. While maintaining a home like environment, Bay Lake offers a wide variety of upscale amenities to include a comprehensive life enrichment program and a fine dining experience that will be enjoyed by all. Bay Lake is beautifully surrounded and provides care levels for independent living, assisted living, and memory care - Inspiritas. I strongly recommend Bay Lake should you or a family member be in need of the services we provide!

Truly caring staff who go above and beyond

The staff at Baylake are wonderful! They take great care of my Dad and always keep me informed of how he is doing. Nothing is too much to ask and they are always patient and kind even when it's a stressful time. My Dad was hospitalized overnight while I was out of town and they took care of my Dad's dog - his best friend- until he returned. They are truly the best and have made my life so much easier as I am not always worried about my Dad being alone or taking care of himself. Having him move and become part of the Baylake family was the best decision we made.

Very nice property. I liked the simple and intimate feel. It would be nice to be there to have another dining option for guests visiting the resident. And a gym for residents with a pool.
