So glad we found Lighthouse!

Just want to let you know how insanely happy our family member is living at Lighthouse! He told us this weekend how much he loves it there. But I have to say, I think the best thing about it is… The food! He cannot stop raving about Chef [name removed] and the wonderful, delicious food! Today he said that the cornbread is as good as his sister used to make and that it tastes like cake! But there are other wonderful things, too… Like the warm and friendly welcome he has received from everyone on the staff, the beautiful grounds for walking or sitting outside reading on a pretty day... and I’m sure much more to be discovered in the upcoming days and weeks. It’s been a wonderful transition for him, and our family deeply appreciates everything!

Thanks for the kind words! It is indeed our pleasure and privilege to welcome him and have him in our Lighthouse family! He's a huge hit and we're an even better place with him here!

Beautiful, clean, friendly.

I toured Lighthouse twice, both times with friends who were looking for their moms. It's very pretty, clean, looks like they keep up with the decor and furnishings. The people we interacted with all were friendly and the people who live there were out and doing things (not like the couple of other places we saw). A man who lives there, who was sitting in the dining room when we stopped there said, "the food is great, thumbs up." Also, my friend said that the rates were comparable to the other places she looked at, but it was much nicer (I didn't go to all of them with her). This is where I found the places that we looked at, so I thought I'd come back and write a review.

Have to prepared to adjust expectations

Do your research before signing the contract. Check survey reports, both annual and complaints. Research medical malpractice lawsuits settled and pending. Meet with department heads and ask whether they are willing to accommodate special requests, particularly dietary preferences. Ask the director how complaints are handled and gauge for yourself whether she is realistic and honest, or looking to sweep issues under the proverbial rug. Question the nursing team as to their communication with families and handling of falls and other incidents. If these responses don't leave you with a feeling of comfort, keep looking! Decide for yourself why this facility is the cheapest in the area.

Be prepared to adjust your expectations

My loved one was in the memory care unit (the Village) at Lighthouse Senior Living. Before you put your loved one in the Village, you need to invest some hours on each of several days and nights to observe the level of care that is provided. Observe meal time. Observe the care that is provided between meals. Observe how the various and individual needs of the residents are addressed. Observe the interactions among residents. Observe the contentment/wellbeing of the residents. Observe the interactions among staff. Observe the contentment of the staff. Observe several hours on each shift, 7-3, 3-11, 11-7. Ask questions about [removed] ratios (for each shift), [removed] ratios (for each shift). Ask questions about the rate of resident falls, intestinal illnesses, bruises, skin tears, 911 trips to the hospital. Understand what expectations Lighthouse holds with regard to the wellbeing of the residents. Only then will you be able to decide if your expectations can be met by Lighthouse.

Very pleased with community!!

I overall have no complaints about this community, the staff have all been so friendly and they have made sure that my mother is comfortable and feels safe in her new living environment. She also really seems to be enjoying the meals they serve as well as the variety of activities they offer throughout the day.

A safe, cheerful new home for my mom

We toured 6 different senior care facilities, 4 in Ellicott City and 2 in Catonsville. We chose Lighthouse for many reasons: it is the closest to our home, it has only one level, the residents seem well cared for, caring & friendly staff and it has a memory care unit on site. The building is being remodeled and several new rooms are being added. My mother moved into one of the new studio apartments. It's a nice size, brand new unit. I also like the location of their building on a quiet street with light traffic. I think after the construction is finished Lighthouse will be very attractive.

great facility and staff....Unfortunately, I was not told that they test daily for legionella, as in legionnaires disease. This is hidden from the residents and families. This is why you never see staff drinking the water. The management team of Sage is harsh and bully the staff. They manage by fear. The floor staff is great.

They have almost everything.

They have almost everything. They have physical therapists who come in. The room has gigantic windows that look out on something beautiful. This was so important to us. It’s like her own place, just smaller. The price really impressed me. Everything’s included except for phone. The people in my mother’s section are all about on the same level. She’s improved so much since she’s been there, regaining abilities and interest. We’re pretty pleased over all. My mother has never been someone who does a lot of activities. They come to get her for activities like movies at 7:30 or bingo.

The Best!

My husband and I find Lighting Living the very best. These people really are care-givers. They really care and take great care of your person there; in my case, my brother. Active, alive, moving, watching, fixing, doing laundry, giving meds, entertaining and making sure they come to activities are among the many qualities we find. Professional and efficient with warmth - that is a quality place. Thanks for asking.

I have been in touch with the Directo...

I have been in touch with the Director. Lighthouse Senior Living is in the same place as the old Rose Manor which had a terrible reputation. She has assured me that they did not hire any of Rose Manor's staff. My parents are reluctant about this place for the reason of the bad reputation of the former place.
