I chose The Lakeshore because it was a smaller community and everyone seemed very friendly, I felt more at home here. I have only been here a short amount of time but it has been a good experience so far. I do know that they have a lot of activities provided and they are trying their best to do as much as they can with some of the covid restrictions still in place. The meals here are chef prepared and we get to choose off a menu. The chef really goes out of their way to try and make it accommodating and nice for everyone that moves in here.

Genuine Staff

I decided to move to The Lakeshore because the staff members were so pleasant, helpful, and genuinely understanding. So selecting The Lakeshore was really very easy. The people here realized I was discouraged after losing my sweetheart. So it was comforting to know I was going to receive emotional support as well as personal assistance. I am looking at this change of residence as a positive step. I am very happy here and looking forward not backward. I am ready for the next chapter!

A good fit for our family

We chose this facility because of the view, it overlooks the lake. We also liked the value for the money as well as the location. The room sizes here seemed average compared to others that we looked into. the facility is older, but it is well maintained. Overall, I would highly recommend them to others looking.

The Lakeshore provides many services for residents. But sometimes I don't believe all the services are provided as requested...like showers, emptying the commode, etc...especially when the resident has signed up for several services. Also, they have a lot of staff to handle all the services, but it is never clear who in the chain of employees handles what -- so questions are often not directed to the right person. However, the meals are very good, the facility is very clean, they offer many activities, and appear to manage drugs correctly. But, The Lakeshore is very costly so be ready to pay for all the benefits you receive.

I like the facility, the activities, but the price is a bit much for what they are providing, though not out of the range. My concern is whether or not they can maintain this level of care. Friendly staff and personnel.

Couldn't be more pleased with Lakeshore

Mom loves living at Lakeshore. The staff is friendly, informative, and helpful. The food is good and the servers are so accommodating. Mom loves all the activities offered - field trips in a big bus, drives to new areas in a smaller bus, trips to Fred Meyer for shopping, etc. They celebrate holidays and special events, have concerts and card playing, book clubs, and puzzle solving as well as Art Show/Wine Tastings. Rides are provided to the Dr. and hospital, too. The grounds are beautifully appointed and the rose garden lovingly maintained - even a pea patch garden if you are so inclined. Mom's unit is not an updated one but she has a beautiful view of the lake and the "eagle tree". She could get help with meds, showering, etc. , but she has improved so much since moving in, she doesn't need it! I could not be more pleased with this wonderful retirement/assisted living home. It's a real pleasure to visit Mom and all of her new friends at Lakeshore!

We Like The Community

My In-Law has good and happy staff to help him and the community is kept clean. He seems to like all the activities and it has been keeping him super busy. The recently had a luau and a fireman carnival. It is nice because they are busy during the week and the family can join if they want. The community looks nice and so beautiful, it is off the lake. We knew some people who had family at Lakeshore, and that made it more comfortable for us having him here. We also picked them because they have a large amount of Asians and since he speaks mostly Cantonese, they were more fitting for him.

I Liked The Community

After having a good tour here, I thought about living here and they were my second consideration. They were too far away and there were personal preference that they did not have for me, like no indoor parking. I needed that.

I Would Recommend Them

Mom is settling in and getting use to the community lifestyle. It is lovely and a well run place. The staff are quite good with the care. The schedule is something she is getting use, knowing how things work here. In the assisted living the staff do anything for her and always helping her. They are good at explaining stuff and trying to get her involved.

A tour for me

I toured this community for myself. It was clean and well maintained. The staff were nice and friendly and answered my questions. They would have offered me activities and a variety of meals. I did not get the home feeling I was looking for but would recommend other families to see this community for themselves.
