We chose Lakewood Estates because when my dad got here he said it was exactly what he was looking for and it fit all of his needs. I think the apartment size he has it good for what he needs at this point. They were very accommodating for me when we were moving my dad in and the staff here seem to be pretty knowledgeable. The chef here is extremely kind and helpful even outside of the kitchen. I would definitely recommend them to others looking.
We chose Lakewood Estates because of the location and they did have all things included such as meals, weekly room cleanings, etc. and the whole package was better than what we were able to find elsewhere. The apartment sizes here were great. They were not big fans of the taste of the food, but I think the facility had a lot going for them we just didn't get to experience it all due to covid. I would definitely recommend them.
So far it has been a great facility. We chose Lakewood Estates because of internal people. They are managing everything as best as they can. I would recommend them to others looking.
The community sometimes has some turnover, and will have to pull back on housekeeping when this happens. It is a pretty good place to live. The only issue my loved one has in the food. It is sometimes cold, this is also in the dining room. The food is currently being delivered to the residents.
The community has been great. The price is a great value and they give you more than other facilities. They accommodate their residence, my dad is in a wheelchair and they put hardwood floor to help him. He loves the food there they are currently running cycles in the cafeteria or room delivery because of covid. They also communicate any covid issue via text to all the families and lockdown the facility. They have bus transportation also. I would recommend this facility
I toured for my mom back in January and was very impressed with the cleanliness overall feeling. Several residents were out and stated how happy they were living there. My tour guide, [name removed], was especially helpful and understanding in a difficult time. Highly recommend!!
I'm glad to get back to normal. I miss the activities most of all the bus ride on sunny days in our beautiful mountains, warm food, and ice cream. Some things are getting better.
Overall experience with Lakewood Estates has been good. However, I am speaking on behalf of my mother who a resident. She is appreciative of the services. Since Covid dining in has been eliminated. The food in the past has been an issue. Hoping they worked out the kinks - many complaints last year. It is difficult when short staffed. I believe the new management is working hard to satisfy the residents needs at this time of pandemic.
Could NOT do it without YOU! Especially [names removed]- you've both helped me countless times and i know the good Lord is adding stars ? in your crowns every day. Thanks soooo much to each of you!
I began looking for places for my mom, and COVID hit, which made my search even more difficult since I couldn't tour anywhere. The sales woman at Lakewood Estates was wonderful and helped explain the process and the difficulties I would encounter. When mom is ready to move, I'll be choosing Lakewood Estates for her!
Facility is wonderful. I enjoy the staff. they are always helpful. The meals are served hot and on time. The staff loves my 4 legged friend. I've lived in two other independent facilities before and Lakewood Estates is the best.
The main issue was the food. The wait staff and the cook were in constant turnover. The maintenance man was on top of things and helpful. The housekeeping was alright. We didn't get along with manager. The apartment was good, but there that were on the north side of the building and you could not drown out the traffic and construction noise. I think, overall, I was fairly content with them being there. The residents were nice and friendly.
The staff at Lakewood Estates is very friendly and willing to work with me. My mom’s apartment is beautiful, she has gotten many compliments on it. I feel they are keeping her safe and I feel secure with her there. The food is very good.

I really like this community. Friendly people, good location,clean.
From the moment we walked in we found the staff genuinely caring. Since my father has moved in everyone has been super helpful and on top of making his experience the best possible. Compared to other retirement homes, we have found Lakewood Estates to be a great value! I highly recommend this community.
Thought our mom would like the cruise ship atmosphere. meals smelled good. Residents seemed engaged and highly functional. Felt like a fun atmosphere with lots of activities. Warm, inviting feel
We liked this one the best so far as it close to her doctor and to her home - only they don't offer the option for a nursing home in the same place. Also, no pharmacy on site. We have to hire outside help for all extras
Lakewood Estates is by far my favorite of the places I visited while looking for a place for my dad. [Removed], who helped me initially, was super informative, and we instantly had a good report. She walked us through the process, and helped us feel immediately at ease. Everyone here has been beyond helpful. The food is really good. I was actually pleasantly surprised by the food. They have a lot of options, and really reasonable portions sizes. It’s very clean here, and they have so many activities from movie nights, to exercise classes, to outings. I have been so pleased with Lakewood Estates. I would definitely recommend it.
It was a very nice community that we toured and the staff was very friendly and helpful in providing answers to our questions. The community was very clean and well kept. We chose another community based on our budget needs.
The staff is friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Dad likes the food, however it does seem to take a long time to receive it. They do offer a lot of activities. The community is clean and very pretty. They do not have staff on site twenty four hours a day. I would recommend this community.
