Cedarhurst, formerly Waterford, is by far the best independent and assisted living community. We moved my Mom and Stepfather in just before the COVID pandemic hit full force. So glad we did! Their apartment is wonderful with a small kitchenette, two bedrooms, two baths, and no kidding closet space! Unheard of in this arena. Tons of options and flexibility with eating meals. The nursing staff and other support staff genuinely care, and will communicate with the family on any and all matters. I looked at many many places and none of them touched what Cedarhurst offers!...

You’ll find Cedarhurst of Edison Lakes tucked into a residential neighborhood in Mishawaka, Indiana. You’ll appreciate the quiet surrounding community and idyllic ponds in front of the building. Best of all, you can bring your pet to make this inviting community really feel like home.

This community has plenty of cozy and comfortable spaces for you to enjoy. Readers will appreciate the communal library stocked with large print books. They also have enjoyable, nostalgic games to play, seating in front of the fireplace for intimate conversations, and a four-seasons room with a porch, just perfect for relaxing with a cup of tea. Outside, you can enjoy beautifully landscaped courtyards and help care for the plants in the raised gardening beds, if you like.

They say they're assisted living, and their idea of assisted living is walking somebody back and forth to the dining hall or watching them take a shower so they don't fall. As far as hands-on, that is not part of their facility, although they said it was. The room has been good. Kelly has done a great job with activities. The food is not the greatest, but it's okay.

Dad was there 6 months before needing skilled care. He received excellent care at Cedarhurst. Sad to have to leave.
Dad will be moving in soon. Have experience with them from another family member. Great place.
StoryPoint was quite impressive, but it the care plan didn't have multiple levels. Essentially, it was too much care for us at this stage. Great value, flexible care levels, beautiful setting.
My dad has been a resident at Cedarhurst for almost a year now. He recently spent 4 weeks in the hospital and at a therapy rehab facility. The director of nursing visited him at the rehab facility. Upon arrival back at Cedarhurst, he was greeted by employees and residents with fist bumps and welcome back greetings. This shows the kindness of those working and living at Cedarhurst. They care about each other.
My mom has lived at Cedarhurst for a year and a half. She thrives on the countless daily activities and the other residents that she has to chat with. The staff assists her with her daily care and this has been a relief for our family.
The staff at Cedarhurst provides a very safe & family oriented atmosphere. They go out of their way to accommodate the needs of the resident. There is prompt follow up for any issues that may arise. Very helpful with the admission process.
My father has been a resident of Cedarhurst for 8 months. He's very content and very well-taken care of. Although he was living independently prior to that, my siblings and I were becoming more concerned about his safety, as well as whether he was taking his medications at the proper times. He was also not eating properly. It's a huge relief for us knowing he's in a safe, caring and friendly environment. He actually looks forward to going to the dining room for meals (food is great, with many choices), while visiting with new friends he's made. It's definitely a good fit for him!
We didn't feel like it was the right fit for my loved one.
The facility is very very clean and very comfortable, truly a beautiful place. The rooms are nice, the residents are nice and the aids are great. Our loved one now aged [age removed] is very happy there and even though the adjustment was big, it was a good one which is a positive note thanks to Cedarhurst. We wish nothing but the best for this community, but we are having some issues. At times the staff are overwhelmed and we can tell. The medical side of things is a big concern - if an elderly senior needs assistance with medicine administration that is a stumbling block. They are not well equipped to handle that, the aids and nurses are very nice but the presentation and process of the medicine distribution is hectic. We can not blame the community fully, their in house pharmacy is the one that has all the medicine and notes for each residents but at times it is disorganized and that's when the timeliness of our loved ones medicine isn't consistent that is when the concern arises.
The reason we did not choose Cedarhurst was due to the small room sizes, mom would have had to buy all new furniture in order for it to fit.
The activities were still pretty minimal with the restrictions but they still allowed them to do some activities. The community was clean, the staff members were all really friendly and the price was more reasonable compared to other communities in the area.
My mother has lived in this facility for almost five years. They over promise and under deliver in nearly every area. The ‘house keeping’ provided is abysmal. They vacuum through the middle of the apartment and clean nothing. The food quality has gotten worse yearly. They serve absolutely no fresh seasonal fruits or vegetables. Since Covid- it feels as if you have locked your loved one away- at a very high cost. They rule with tyranny. My mother has had 2 vaccines, but cannot leave overnight without being quarantined to her apartment yet again. We have to wear 2 masks to visit- stay distanced, no eating or drinking.....we have not been in our mom’s apartment for over a year. As restrictions everywhere are lightening up- the Cedarhurst is locking down:( My mother is getting increasingly depressed and wanting to go to heaven to get out of the Cedarhurst. They are a nightmare to deal with. I would look elsewhere if you love the person you are looking to move....
Make sure to do your research when looking into this community. I do not feel my loved ones did receive the care for the amount of money spent. Communication was ok. There was an issue with privacy and we felt they too eager to come into the rooms without permission. I would not recommend this community to others.
The community is not very good with medication distribution. They want to have the meds ordered from their pharmacy and it was way more expensive. Communication needed to be better between the staff and family it was not consistent. If you can manage the med for your loved on I would recommend this community to others. The facility is very nice and in a good neighborhood.
Do not move someone you love into the Cedarhurst. It has been a nightmare for the last year due to Covid. But their policies go way beyond Draconian and continue even after the vaccine. Nothing has changed, except policies are more tyrannical than ever!!!! They do not even follow CDC guidelines, they make their own to make life miserable for the residents, and loved ones who are barely allowed to visit. My mother's life was already small, but they manage to make it smaller by the day. The food is not good quality. Housekeeping is abysmal. The 'housekeeper' runs a vacuum through the middle of the apartment once a week. Cleans nothing!!!! Activities provided are a joke. Look around - there are many places that have opened up for the residents and family and are trying to get back to normal. The Cedarhurst is not one of them...
The staff members have been great, and the care services are excellent. They have done an outstanding job during the pandemic and quarantine residents and employees when appropriate. Our loved one would say the meals are a 6+, the quality is great and there is a wide variety of options to choose from. She is overall very impressed, and she is very satisfied with the amenities and quality of service she received. Our loved one has a nice size apartment with two bedrooms and two baths. We also get an email five days a week giving any updates regarding covid.
A very good tour with [name removed]. Very knowledgeable. A very nice place.
My husband and loved one went to tour this community and they both really liked it, however our loved one moved in during the COVID shut down so we have not been able to see what is going on. From our understanding the care services seem to be good.
