Our family had an in person tour with Limestone Lodge and the facility was clean it looked well kept on the outside but it did not have a homey feeling to it. The residents were like zombies. Not one of the people I saw made any type of facial expression.

Great Place!

The atmosphere at Limestone Lodge is wonderful. As soon as you walk in, you are smelling something baking and it reminds you of home! The staff is friendly and knowledgeable and helped me during my visit there. The residents are friendly and engaging in activities. Both the assisted living and memory care side were clean which was a major factor for me. Overall I felt my experience was great and I would recommend Limestone Lodge!

If you are considering placement for a beloved family member, Limestone Lodge is definitely worth the time it takes to tour the facility, meet the staff and view first hand how happy the residents are. Activities such as board games, musical entertainment and holiday festivities are the norm. The staff are professional, interaction with the residents are always courteous and respectful, and the facility is clean and well maintained. If you are looking for a facility that genuinely cares, then choose Limestone Lodge.

Great Place!

I love everything about the Lodge! The staff is very professional, loving and friendly. The residents are well taken care of, have plenty of activities and are always happy and smiling! This is small place and I enjoy seeing so much one on one interaction between the staff and residents. The Admin is wonderful and goes above and beyond everyday. She is in the trenches wearing many hats and is very kind and helpful. The staff has become family to us and we are blessed.

Caring staff

As a small town, Athens, Alabama doesn't offer as many choices in senior care as larger metropolitan areas. I feel lucky that Athens has a place like Limestone Lodge, where staff really tries hard to work with residents and families. The small size of the facility allows it to offer personal attention to families and residents.

Personalized Care

My parents lived in a large senior community for 17 years. Unfortunately it was hundreds of miles away from my brother and me. We couldn’t convince them to move closer to us. After my mother died, we realized that assisted living was not a suitable care for my dad. Several months ago my dad agreed that it would be better if he lived closer to family. We’re so happy with our decision. The staff is very caring and the small size of the facility is great for individual care. My dad loves his unit and has made a good friend. The staff remembers my dad’s specific menu preferences.

One of the best for Memory Care

I've had a very good experience with this facility so far. The staff is wonderful. They are all very caring. They're just awesome! They're very good about keeping me updated on my loved one. Also, when I call they always answer. They openly listen to any concerns I have. It's also a very homey environment. Smaller facility and not overwhelmingly big like some of the other places. The food is great. If my loved one doesn't like something that's served, they work with her. Overall, they've gone above my expectations. I would definitely recommend them to family and friends.

Excellent staff that cares

Limestone Lodge has been an absolute blessing for my family. We had to move my mom and dad into a facility quickly due to an event that would no longer warrant my parents living on their own, and [name removed]and [name removed] were extremely helpful in accommodating my parents specific needs. We looked at a number of other facilities across the Tennessee Valley and found Limestone Lodge to be the most thoughtful, responsive, and open with us during our search. We made the right choice and are thankful for the care my parents receive on a daily basis.

Peace of mind.

My mom spent 5 and 1/2 years at limestone lodge. They always had mom's best interest at heart. The current administrator [name removed] was a god send. She worked with us daily and aleays was available for my calls and listened to any concerns i had. [name removed] has been there the entire time with mom. She has the same drive and determination at her core that [name removed] has, they care for their residents and want whats best. I have no problem reccomending this establishment to anyone that needs an assisted living community.

Our family had a virtual tour experience and the community was very good. However, one thing we noticed which is probably due to the age of the property, but it is not nearly as nice as the other community we were looking into.
