Review for Lakeview Estates

Lakeview had higher ratio of staff per residents and was smaller community of residents (35-38 residents). Also residents have full access to beautiful enclosed outdoor patio area that they can go out to anytime during day by themselves - don't need staff or family member accompanying. That was a BIG plus for Mom who has always been outdoors person Master Gardener. This is a 2 story building and residents are able to go upstairs or downstairs via elevator anytime they want. So mom doesn't feel like she's "locked away". The young activities director is super engaging. Activities going on every hour during day and she will go around to rooms to engage residents in all activities. The residents don't just sit in rooms all day. There is a big game/puzzle room. Every one on staff is very caring and engaging to residents no matter their job - from the Executive Director, Billing officer, Sales person to the nurses, aids, & cooks.

Loving life at Lakeview Estates!

The entire staff have been great! The RA's are particularly wonderful because they make my mom feel special! She's enjoying the attention and support that she gets from them. I appreciate all of that too, along with the individual care she gets and the time that they spend helping her pick out her outfits and making sure she feels pretty. She hasn't complained about the meals, so I assume she's satisfied. We did have some issues in the very beginning because my mom hadn't been put on the shower and laundry schedule. We seemed to have gotten over that hurdle. I would definitely recommend Lakeview Estates to others.

Great Place for Loved One-Not too Big

I really like all of the people there, but there is always room for improvement. We picked this community, because my loved ones were able to share a room. They have lots of activites, and they do a good job with encouraging participation. They need to improve on, communication with long term insurance companies. It's really a great place. They have less residents, and they get to know the residents.

Our family had an in person tour and we thought the tour experience was fantastic but because of the level our loved one was at, Lakeview was just not the place at the moment but it very well could be in the future.

Great place to live

This place is great. My sister is no angel and tends to give them a hard time, but somehow they're able to roll with the punches. Even the Executive Director has helped. Any other place would have probably asked her to leave. I visit twice a week, my sister seems very content here. The staff is fantastic. They're very nice. They have activities all the time. My sister is not usually one to participate, but has done so here and enjoyed it. She's even made a couple friends. The food seems to be good quality and variety. Housekeeping is often and they do a great job. I would recommend them to family and friends.

Tour experience

The rooms at Lakeview Estates were just too small. Also, while I know they can get confused, one of the residents actually approached me in the lobby and told me that living there was bad. The receptionist got up from her desk and whisked that resident off quickly to "activities." The resident did seem very unhappy.

Tour of Lakeview Estates

I toured Lakeview Estates and it was nice. Our tour guide, [name removed], she went above and beyond to provide information and communicate. She was a very very good communicator. We chose another community because Lakeview cost a little bit more and I didn't think it was worth more, although it was closer.

Had different expectations, that they would be watching him more often then had liked. Ended up having to have Fire Department come each of days he was there (for a very short period) but they would have to pick him up from falling each day.

Warm, Inviting, Sanctuary for Your Loved One

Lakeview Estates is a happy place. You will feel confident knowing your loved one is well cared for. My loved one seems content in being here. The community could add some additional menu items for dietary restrictions. My loved one likes to stay active with all the activities available in the community. It feels like a cruise ship because of all they have to offer. I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. There has been some turnover of staff, and have gone through a recent transition with the new staff coming onboard. Housekeeping, laundry, three meals, snacks, once a week outing, activities, electricity, water, and gas is all covered under the monthly fee. The care fee can be additional. Medication management, bathing, dressing and hygiene care are all items the community assists my loved one with. The community is only two stories, with a lake nearby. It is a very scenic area. There is a courtyard in the middle of the community for the residents to use.

Love Lakeview Estates

I would not have my mother any where else for assisted living memory care. The staff is caring, compassionate, and responds to her needs and keeps her happy giving me the opportunity to continue to work and travel in my job. My sister and I both travel extensively in our jobs and we are able to work with confidence that she is cared for. We recently had to have her in the hospital and in rehab but as soon as we could, we readmitted her back to Lakeview. There were tears shed when she left and tears shed when she returned yesterday. I work in long term healthcare myself and I know the difference and I can certainly recommend Lakeview Estates to anyone that needs some loving care.

Thank you for your comments. Our housekeeping department and our entire team are always alert to any odors in our community. We made additional rounds as soon as we reviewed your comments and were pleased that the community smelled clean and fresh. We are Memory Care Assisted Living. We do have locked and coded doors for the safety of our residents and for the peace of mind for their families. One of the benefits of this secure environment is that our residents can walk and explore their home. Our courtyard is also secure so that residents can enjoy the outdoors. We would be delighted to have you as our guest again so that you can tell us your impressions and we can explain how being a secure Memory Care community helps our residents to maximize their feelings of independence and to feel at home.
