My tour of Melody Living Lake in the Hills

I toured Melody Living Lake in the Hills and I was not impressed. It felt cheap. I'd rate it at poor. The staff was nice, but the total experience was not on the level of the other facility in the area that we toured/chose. Mom deserved the best in the area.

Tour experience

Melody Living Lake in the Hills was my first choice for my dad. The facility is very nice and they have individual care plans tailored to whatever your loved one may need. It is more expensive, but it is worth it because you get the care needed. All of the staff that I spoke with were extremely kind and helpful, it was just a totally different experience than the place he ended up choosing. I wish that he would have gone here.

Melody Living Lake in the Hills was a newer and beautiful facility. It was much bigger than we were looking for, but I thought it was a very nice place. My loved one just needed more care than they could provide.

Great information, great people

We contacted Melody Living regarding the possibility of moving our in-laws to the area. They were so kind in explaining everything and answering all our questions. We toured the facility and it checked all the boxes we were looking for; staffing, medical assistance, layout of units, layout of the facility, the cleanliness of the facility and the staff we encountered were so nice. We were ready to sign my in-laws up when a sudden turn in their health made that impossible, but if the situation changes this will be our first choice. Talking with [name removed] put my mind at ease that this would have been the perfect place for them.

Kathy, your kind words are greatly appreciated. It’s also an affirmation of our mission - Residents First. We strive every day to put our residents’ needs first, and that includes those that haven’t officially joined our Melody Living family. If your in-laws situation changes, we are always here as a resource. Thank you so much for your feedback.

Great care and a nice place to live

The type of food they are serving is where we fall a little short - the residents there are used to meat, potatoes and vegetables but they are getting all sorts of different concoctions that they are just not familiar with. However they have an additional side menu that you can order from if you don't like what they are serving. We also appreciate that they have meetings a few times a month to discuss what it is the residents are wanting to be served. They have a ton of different activities which is great. They are very good about keeping up with the health of our loved ones and will asses her health accordingly and will adjust the level of care plan as necessary. We would absolutely recommend this community to other families.

I am pleased with my overall experience at Melody Living. The staff and other residents are down to earth. The food is good. I can go to the dining room or they can serve me in my room if I want. When I feel like being social, they have different activities for me to join in. I enjoy living here. My apartment and the community is clean. I would recommend anyone to live here.

There is always something to do at Melody Living

Before I moved to Melody Living, I was in a different place and it was not like here. I'm so happy to be living here now with my cat Smoky. There is always something going on, something to do. The residents get along really well. We often laugh, sing, and just have fun. We get to take trips to enjoy the city, to the stores, restaurants, zoo, the parks and etc... I fell very happy here and every time I leave my room there are always people around. I like going out to the patio with other residents to people watch and just enjoy each other's company. If I need anything I just call for help and the staff are right there to help. If I want to do use the gym I can go use it and the Therapy team are always available to assist.

If you can't be home, this is the place to be

If you can not be home, this is the place to be. Melody Living was recommended to me by my home care nurse. The staff here are friendly and good. The other residents are friendly as well. They give us good food options and exercise classes. This is easy living. I like having the freedom to come and go as I pleased and having my family visit me anytime. Overall, I am happy here.

A great home away from home

Melody Living is a great home away from home because of the varieties of good tasting meals served. Very friendly and helpful staff available. The community provides varieties of local excursions and many interesting activities. After touring other places in the area, I felt the most welcomed and comfortable with Melody Living while others were being pushy or not honest about their cost or services. Melody Living also offered more options for my wife and I to help make this move possible. I would highly recommend moving here.

The facility was very nice and clean. The girl showing us around really cared about my mother and she was accommodating. It just seemed too commercial and not very homey. It was disappointing that the outside didn't have any trees or grassy areas.

A great next chapter of a loved ones life

We have more involvement with the cooperative staff team, but the lady in the sales department that we work with is just amazing. Our loved one really enjoys the meals there, however the activities are still limited so your pretty much just on your own. If they bring up the level of activities and keep maintaining the staff and head of nursing which is great, we would give it an overall score of 4+
