Customer Reviews

Might not be the best fit.

This is all so brand new to us, finding a place that is a good fit for our loved one. We were not aware that the medical team here is separate from the community and the services required are charged a la carte. The staff is friendly and caring but this community is more residents who are active and need little care. There are activities provided for the residents to participate in. The environment is warm and inviting. The dining room is very nice and the meals that they serve are okay. At this point of my mom's life, she does not eat a lot. We think at this time she needs a lot more care than this community can provide.

Staff for care

I toured this community for my father's care. I was not very pleased with the person in charge of the tour. I felt like she did not want to help me with the questions that I had on the care that was offered here. I liked the cleanliness of the community. The menu was nice. We feel like there is staff that could be helpful to my needs for care. Families might find this community to be what they are looking for.

Making the Move Soon to This Community

My love one will be making the move to this community pretty soon. I will be comfortable with her move to this facility because it is a nice place. The staff is kind, and friendly. The community looks nice, they do a good job with the cleanliness around the community. They offer a tax credit, and that is convenient for us.

Nice Experience, but Not the Right Fit for Us

My family, and I had a nice tour of this community. Everyone was kind, and everything went well overall. From what we were shown the community looked nice. The staff we met was polite, and our questions were answered. One concern was that they told us they have assigned seating. I did not like that idea, I felt like it limited the residents getting to know each other. It was a good experience, but this wasn't the right for us.

Cleanliness Needs Improvement

I was not impressed with my tour of this community. The appearance of the community could had been better. From what I saw they need to do a better job with the cleanliness of the community.

A Nice Tour And A Long Waiting List

I liked seeing all the extra amenities this community has. I had a nice tour but after getting the details about them, I found that they are too expensive. They have a voucher program for qualified residents but there was a longer waiting list. All communities could make it more affordable for families.

Our residents' monthly rent includes all meals, activities, outings, social events and the community offers additional services should the need arise.

Too Expensive, but Tour Went Well

I had a good tour of this community. The staff was kind, and friendly. The community looked nice, and well maintained. Everyone was very kind to my family, and I. The experience went well, but unfortunately their rates were to expensive for our budget.

Not a good fit for my loved one...

We toured this community when looking for my mother and it seemed very institutional.

Thank you for touring our community. We strive to create and maintain a warm and inviting environment for our residents and visitors. We will certainly consider your assessment and appreciate your feedback.

Wasn't Impressed with Our Tour

We were not impressed with our tour of this community. It felt like our tour was rushed; we were out of there within ten minutes. Our tour guide didn't seem very interested in the community, or us. It was not a community we would had felt comfortable placing my father.

I like the care that my mom is getting here. the staff is very nice. The food has gotten better from when we first moved in. She is very happy with the activities that are offered. They have small trips outside of the community and she really enjoys them. the community is very clean. We would recommend this community for the care and value for a loved one.

Staff has been so helpful –Veronica has been special.

I don't know that anything is ever perfect, but this is good.

I would say she is happy. I don't know that anything is ever perfect, but this is good. I think the activity level is good. They have the bus that takes them to the store and such, and she has done that a couple of times. People have been generally welcoming and friendly. The leasing agent could have done a slightly better job of explaining all the additional fees. She loves the houskeeping aspect. She was a little disappointed that some of the things she has seen other places aren't offered or done the same here, but it would be nice if they could take a small carton of milk or a piece of fruit with them back to their room, and while they do have a general store there where everything is a dollar, it would still be nice if they could just take a piece of fruit.

Not happy with this place

My loved one lived here 4 years. Meals are awful. There is not a real chef. Food is cold, overdone, dry and not as posted on the menu or skimpy helpings frequently. Coffee is not refilled and servers are snippy and at times just rude. Employees in dining room just don't seem to care. Med team seems to just want to ship everyone to the hospital and won't even help someone to their apartment if they are not paid special for it. Building is very cold at times, especially the so called library that has one book shelf in it. Very dissatisfied. Cleaning is ok, but surface cleaning only. Office staff is very nice. What you get for the outrageous rent is not worth it at all.

I find my living here satisfactory. My room are especially clean. The help is very polite which means a lot. The office help is great.
Thank you,
L. Monendo

Nice looking place, not the best fit for us

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. I thought American House was a very nice looking place! The facility was clean and well kept, and the staff seemed friendly and caring. However, I don't think it would have been the best fit for Mom. It's a large community, and it would have been difficult for my loved one to get around.

Toured

I toured this community while looking into senior living options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

I like it, I think it's a really nice place.

I like it, I think it's a really nice place. Mom seems to like it. She hasn't complained about food, and has met some people that she likes and gets along with. She seems to be doing really well. We chose them because it seemed to be the best fit for her.

Very nice place

They do a great job at American House Lakeside. The people here are all very friendly, the food is good, and they take great care of the people who live here. I toured quite a few options in the area and when I walked into this place I knew it was the one, it just has a really friendly welcoming atmosphere. I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking in the area!

The minute I walked into the facility I knew it was a comfortable, welcoming, safe, and happy environment. The residents appeared to enjoy their surroundings. I cannot say enough about Marilyn. She was thorough, and made certain I had everything I needed to be comfortable with any choice I would make. The 1-bedroom units were perfectly laid out space, the dining room was inviting. It was obvious that every decision made is done for the benefit of the residents in the community.

good value

I liked the appearance of the facility inside and out, and the room layouts, and lounge areas, but there was not much dedicated outdoor space for lounging around or gardening. The food is fair and served at prescribed hours, nothing available throughout the day. The staff seem happy and genuinely friendly toward residents and their families. I think it is a good value for the money.

American House Senior Living Communities

Local Representative

Thank you for leaving you feedback! We strive to provide a
great value while not compromising care and services for our residents
– and our staff are definitely great, aren’t they?
Residents enjoy three full meals a day with a light snack provided in the evening.
If you’re interested in gardening, you can stop in and see me and we can see
what we can do to help.
Sincerely,
Aubrey Brohl, Executive Director

They listen to their residents and treat them really well.

They have a lot of stuff going on all the time, and they are good about letting the residents know what's going on, it's posted all over the walls too. I would like to see them have a breakfast meal, right now it's just dinner and supper. The food quality was good at first but then things were being served cold and they had a meeting and some residents spoke up, they haven't had one meal since, that wasn't sent out hot. The sales staff is really good, they explain things really well. They seem to really care about the residents.

American House Senior Living Communities

Thanks for noticing how hard we work to make sure our
residents are happy and having fun! We do really care about them. If
there is ever another concern, please contact me directly and I'd be
happy to talk to you about it to see what can be done.

Great if you're independent

My mother in law was living here by herself but we all felt that she needed more care than what they had there. They keep an eye on you but it's not really around the clock care. It was more like an apartment, they're pretty much on their own there. My mother in law loved it and it was hard to get her to go there, she wanted to stay in her house and she fought it. There was a lot of yelling and fighting for a while. The day we moved all her stuff over there and all her furniture it pretty much looked like home, but the end of the day she was getting more okay with it and within a couple of days she was sayig it was a really nice place.
I would recommend American House for somebody that doesn't need the extra care, who's more independent but they're there if you need them.

Transitioning out of a familiar home can be a tough time for anyone, but I’m glad your mother in law is acclimating nicely. I hope the staff and I have helped in the transition – if she’s still having trouble or missing home, you might want to read our Tips to Ease the Transition into a Senior Living Community. Let us know if we can ever do anything to help your mother in law or your family!

We arrived on time anticipating that we would have both lunch and a tour (noon). Through a communication glitch, our arrival was more of a surprise. Even unannounced, director graciously welcomed us in and gathered information from Mom. We did not have lunch, but did get an invitation to return for a meal at a later date. Sharon showed us the dinning room and meal choices, the laundry room, chapel, and then a one bedroom and two bedroom apartment. Mom really liked the one bedroom apartment and seemed to respond positively to everything that the director talked about.
