The staff at Lakewood Gardens have been very friendly and communicative. It does feel a little lite on the number of staff - especially on nights and weekends. There are too many residents in the activity room with only one staff member. The move in process was straight forward and without issues. The meals are above average - from what I have seen. I would recommend Lakewood Gardens for moderate to severe dementia patients. Mild dementia patients may not get enough mental stimulation or activities, though.

Great Place for your loved one
Lakewood Gardens has been an absolute blessing for my family. My Aunt [name removed] became a resident in July 2021 and I could not have asked for a better place for her. The leadership is top notch and the environment is loving and caring. They show the kind of love towards my Aunt [name removed] as if she is their own family member. The staff is phenomenal and always pleasant, helpful and a joy to partner with. The Medtechs are Great! They are always available to answer questions regarding my Aunt’s care. They keep me informed and in the loop about everything as it relates to my Aunt. I have never had a negative experience in 2years that my Aunt has resided there. The facility is CLEAN, never smells , well sanitized and they take pride in maintaining a well kept safe home for my Aunt. The residents are engaged in various activities, they are fed well balanced meals and love permeates throughout the whole building. My Auntie is happy. I NEVER ever worry about her care. This staff and team are Angels

A lovely place for your loved one
What we really like about Lakewood Gardens is that they got my mother-in-law involved in the different activities they offer. Also the doctor sees her at the facility which is a big plus. Based on the experience we have had so far, we would recommend Lakewood Gardens community to other families looking or a place for their loved ones.

I had to take my dad out of the facility my dad had blood in his urine excessive amount and they did not call 911 for him instead they called me to take him and by the time the doctors seen him in the ER he had lost a lot of blood and had to have a procedure to stop the bleeding, and he is 94 years old. The facility is clean, but some of the staff not friendly.

I would rate this place a 0 but there's no such option
If you care for your loved one please don't place them here. They have nothing but overworked employees. They have no time to provide a quality level of care. My loved one had numerous falls & multiple bruises and no one would ever provide a good explanation as to what had happened. Please don't place your loved one here.

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 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.

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.
