I am happy with Lakewood Gardens

I have been very happy with this community. I do wish that I could communicate a little more with my mom, but I do know they are very busy. I have never eaten here but my mom has never had any complaints about the meals. Overall, I would definitely recommend to others looking.

Looks like a great choice. Rooms available,full schedule of activities, 1 level, meets all of my requirements. Potential drawback - Nanny Cam not allowed in private room, cameras not allowed on premises. Cell Phone for mom, not allowed, they have phones available.

We really liked the cleanliness and the welcoming feel of this facility. I like that it is one story and not over crowded. Definitely a consideration

A Place for Mom

I’m glad we chose Lakewood Gardens. The facility is clean. The care givers are very kind and compassionate. This facility is set up for caring for people with different degrees of memory concerns. My step mom has been living here now for three months. The rooms are nice and there’s two large outdoor patio areas. There are are a couple of visiting rooms available if you have a large party visiting. The rates are very reasonable too.

People who really care about your loved ones!!!

My father was there for approximately 4 months. This community was so awesome. The staff are extremely professional and really care for the residences. The staff keeps the residences engaged and entertain all day long. I really loved how my father was treated. I really miss the staff a lot. It's extremely clean and well taken care of. The rooms are pretty large for the tenants. The young man that is maintaining the property inside and out, does an outstanding job. My dad had to leave due to medical issues, so if he was still able to continue to stay there, he would still be there.

[Removed] is a nice person. Not attractive for early dementia persons. Too isolated and barred off. Residents were not active.

Seeing What They Offered

They were good when we had a tour with with community. I thought they were friendly and professional. I saw they had some activities going on while walking through the community. Nothing was wrong here except having smaller rooms and they reason why we did not choose them.
