We found ourselves in a situation where we needed to find my Mother-in-Law (only 59) a long-term living facility due to mental health issues. This has been a daunting process to say the least. I was happy to find that Lamplight was close to our home and in a location where there were restaurants/bakeries and light shopping options nearby. What I wasn’t too excited about, was some of the mixed reviews online, actually they almost made me cancel our tour at Lamplight. In meeting with Lamplight, we were very impressed and unsure of where the complaints come from, but as you do your research, keep in mind when reading reviews that each situation is different; and that family involvement and early intervention of needs differs. I think this is the case with many of the negative reviews. I can only speak from my experiences but: -There is no offensive smell that meets you at the door (this may vary from day-to-day, but I did not witness any and I am very sensitive to smells/cleaning agents). -[Name removed], the Community Relations Director, is a breath of fresh air and easy to be transparent with. She has been such a resource to us in this process. You do not feel that you are receiving a “sales pitch” or that she is looking to just fill a bed. She is very empathetical and a great listener. I saw so many residents approach her and have what seemed to be a very connected relationship to her. -The staff we came in contact with, including housekeeping seemed genuinely happy to be there. -The amenities are much like a long stay hotel with weekly housekeeping and a 24/7 nurse on staff should an emergency occur. -They offer 2 meal options, 3 times a day served by wait staff (how wonderful!). -They allow some small pets. -They provide medication management/administration and transportation to doctor’s appointments. -Full list of activities on a daily basis in addition to affordable field trips for residents to get out into the community. -In addition they have a “man cave” where people gather for football games, several different church services, a library and man nooks and crannies for different events. -Rooms are private with a private bath (no stove to worry about, but you can equip the room with a mini refrigerator and microwave if you would like). In addition, the room we saw had new grey Pergo like flooring. -Your loved one can come and go as they wish unless in a memory care unit. This means that they can still attend a separate day program if that fits their lifestyle. -There are 2 floors of locked memory care each that resemble the other resident’s rooms. -Lamplight is experienced with mental health patience which requires a certain understanding/expertise from what I am learning. -I believe Lamplight would welcome families to stay connected to individual’s care and want them to have an active, successful partnership in treatment if that is the family’s preference (not all places seem this open).Reviewed on SeniorAdvisor.com
This place was very old and run down. I did not feel comfortable moving my mother-in-law her.Reviewed on A Place For Mom
