Poor and medical services is a concern as managed by LCS which revenue is 56B
The interior design is nice, food seems tasty ideal location in Towson! Blakehurst it is more of a hotel than a community. The entrance way has oCaters to a bridge&Country Club group which is unfortunate as not everyone belongs to country clubs and/or plays bridge. Trying to get through to my Mom via the Blakehurst front desk it took over 1 hour. I was transferred to 5 different departments, on one occasion hung up on, then come to find out some of the medical services staff assumed the new director of Blakehurst was a female with the name, [name removed]. I cannot image if it was an emergency and had to reach Mom right away. With a LCS,Continuum of Care company making $[removed] in revuene, the Blakehurst monthly costs of approximately $[removed], my Mom has to eat $[removed] a day in food, a 30 minute exercise program plus a movie. Recently, the repaved the entire asphalt parking and roads which was not necessary. Added a flat screen TV to the mail room and are undergoing lots of renovations, new pool

Blakehurst is not what it once was
I am not a resident but am a frequent visitor. When my parents entered Blakehurst, I was pleased - I though it the right decision. For the first few years, things went well. Services were provided and the food was typically very good. Care was adequate. There were good attempts in hosting special events. The outdoor grilling was a favorite for many. Fast forward to the last 1-2 years. Food is not edible - really. Anyone want green beans with yellow spots? Food is so bad, the residents are preparing their own meals and throwing out what is provided. This is more stressful in time of COVID. Oh yes, let's talk about that. Residents are free to leave the facility without restriction. BUT, I cannot visit my parents. I cannot enter to even assist them when help is needed. Some residents cannot visit spouses in the medical facilities. How can Blakehurst allow residents to leave and go to dinner, have drinks with friends and interact with the public but then deny family from meeting one and other. The virus will get into Blakehurst from the interaction with the public. Prohibiting family and spouses spending time with one and other is simply heartless. Blakehurst was a good, friendly place that was safe for our aging population. For the initial investment and monthly dues, today it is simply wasteful. Enjoy life. Buy a small home and when care is needed, there are good senior care professionals out there. (Yes, you need to search for the good ones.) Life will be happier, and you can get the care you need. And yes, you can even save a bunch of money!

Blakehurst is the Best Retirement in Baltimore County
Blakehurst Retirement Community in Towson is beautiful with many wonderful amenities. The staff is very helpful and focused on customer service, and the management really has a heart to serve their residents. I also love that there is a restaurant & cafe on site, which is also open to the public. The food is well prepared, American style cuisine & reasonably priced, especially for the upscale look & feel of the place! One of the unique features about Blakehurst is the fitness center, with a great schedule of unique group exercise classes, not found in most gyms, and tailored well to the resident population & health concerns. The gym staffs two fitness professionals who are available for one on one training & their expertise and training background is impressive! If you're looking for a retirement community with all the bells & whistles this is the place!!!

Blakehurst was an excellent choice for mom
When my mother told me she wanted to relocate to the Towson area to be near me I knew it was time to look for just the right place. I toured both independent living and assisted living communities in the area. In the end the best of the independent living apartments was at Blakehurst Retirement Community in Towson. It was newer than many and had larger apartments than any others I toured. Time passed and before we knew it my mother had been living there for almost 4 years before her death due to health issues. She never had any complaints about living at Blakehurst and enjoyed playing bridge and attending concerts there as well as walking around the beautiful grounds to check on the many blooming plants. The staff are pretty darn good people and were accommodating when requests were made. When my mother needed some extra help they cared for her like she was their own mother. This made life easier for my mother and my family.

Tips for evaluating your community options

Safety is a primary concern when seniors and their families look for Assisted Living. To ensure that a community meets your needs and expectations, we recommend that seniors and family members:

  • Tour the location: Touring allows you to speak to current residents and staff, and helps you confirm the accuracy of the community description and photos. Use our touring checklist to help guide your visit.

  • Confirm the availability of required services: Before you commit, make sure that the community offers all the services your senior needs, and that those services can be provided within your budget.

  • Know the Maryland regulations for Assisted Living: Each state has its own laws and inspections processes to ensure seniors reside in a safe environment. Depending on your state, you may even be able to look up inspection reports for the community(ies) you’re considering. Learn more about Maryland regulations for Assisted Living.
