My Tour Experience at Lakewood Gardens

The residents and staff seemed happy, and the rooms were nicer. This is an older building off a busy street. The views from the rooms look onto a parking lot.

Virtual tour revealed clean facilities. Shared bedroom seemed small for 2 individuals. Good outdoor space w/tables & benches. Activity room, family, music room that can be reserved. Single room cost[fee removed] more than shared room which is not feasible at this time based on [name removed] income. The representative, [name removed] was professional and friendly. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

My loved one was apart of this community for a month. It was a good experience for the care that was provided. I would recommend their services to a family in need.

The staff are very good!!!

Mom loves living at this community and said we could not have chosen a better place. The staff are helpful and take the time to explain things. They offer some family involved activities and mom seems to enjoy the singing. She complains about the food sometimes but she likes some of it. The community and her room are clean and the grounds are well maintained. We are very pleased with this community and I have already recommended it.

A great place for the cost!

My loved one is doing really well since moving into Lakewoods. He has made new friends. The staff are nice , friendly and keep us updated on his care. The food is terrible and the community is average when it comes to cleanliness. I would recommend this community to family and friends.

Not The Way I Expected

My mom was staying here at this community and they are a very clean facility. The staff ratio could use more improvement, I feel there was not enough care to be provided. There were some activities available, I did notice all entertainment took place in an open room. Overall the community is all around really good but there are equipment provided to make care easier for residents.

One of the selling points was the activities!!

I would recommend Lakewood Gardens but I would also say it is not a perfect fit for everyone. My grandma is losing weight so I do not think she likes the food as she does eat when I bring her food. The staff are nice and take good care of her. The community is clean and well maintained. There are activities available but they do not encourage her to participate in them.
