Thank you for leaving Lakeview Memory Care Community a review and comment. I am concerned as the comments of a nice place do not match the 1-star rating. We do offer services for all care levels and wondering if your dad may not be quite ready for 24-hour licensed nursing. I hope you find the perfect place and if we can serve you in any way, we would be grateful if you would call Rod, our Executive Director.

My aunt is a current resident of Lakeview Memory Care. I've been quite impressed in my experiences at this facility. For starters, the interior, the decorating and the atmosphere is all top notch. I really like how residents can furnish their rooms with as much or as little of their favorite furniture and mementos. This has been helpful for my aunt. Also, in my observations and interactions with the staff, I've found them to be compassionate, humane and professional, and they have treated my aunt and other residents like family. Highly recommended!

Feeling the Love

I have looked at many places for my mother. We had her in another community and I finally was able to move her to this community. She is comfortable, clean and happy here!! The staff really knows and understands my mother's needs. I can see a big difference in my mom's mood and she is engaged in the activities. She has made friends and moves around the community with ease. I appreciate all that Lakeview has done for her. Thank you to the staff for all you do. I feel the love that the caregivers and staff provide to the residents.

Don't let the looks of the place impress your choice to put your love one here. [name removed] will tell you everything you want to hear to make you think it's were they need to be for care.
He is just good at what does " Sales the place to you, and brings the money in " The personality you see in that office, changes once you have moved in.
If everything was as good as the sales pitch, it truly would be a nice place.
The major problem seems to be management, lack of communication from management to staff, and inconsistency of care.
Which brings up the next comments. Over the months that we have had our loved one there. They have a major problem of keeping staff. There has been major turn over, which bring inconsistency, which is not good for our love ones care. They need to see the same people that make them comfortable, and at home. So far I have only seen two Rn's that give the true meaning of the loving care you would what for you loved one. who actually take time, to listen, hug, scratch someone's back because she knew it would help calm him down. Even more, this two take time with families to inform you, show and so there compassion for your loved one. It truly wasn't just a job too them. You could see the love , and compassion they have for what they are doing. Which I must admit is no easy task. Unfornately I can't speak for all shifts as I work, and can only see what happens with the evening staff, Unfornately the good Rn's, and aids don't stay because from what I can observe ,and talking with other family member who have love one's here. They all seem to have the same complaint. Management, and the promise of how good the place is until you move your parent in.
I will not condemn other staff that work there. They are very nice, some more then others. But have witnessed first hand how the manager treats his employee's in front of residents, families, and other staff. I would think If was a employee working there, I would want to be treated with more respect. Maybe that's were a change needs to be made. "Management"

So Far So Good

My dad seems to be settling in nicely here. I feel that the staff here are very good with their residents, attentive, friendly and caring.
My dad is starting to take part in the activities and going to the dining room for his meals. There's lots of room for him to take his walks and I know he is safe here. I would recommend this community to those looking for a nice place.

Mom seems to be doing alright being here. She is starting to interact and socialize with the other residents that are living here. The community is brand new so everything is very nice extremely clean. The staff is very good helpful and friendly. Considering that they are still new there are not a lot of residents there yet so the activities are limited the hope is once they start getting more residents than the activities will increase. Mom hasn't complained about the food so it must be good.

Overall it is good

The staff care for my mom pretty well. They are keeping her active and hydrated. This is a new community so it is very nice. They do still seem to be working out some of the kinks with communication between staff members. The activities person is very upbeat and knows everyone by name. Her room is nice and it shares a bathroom with the neighbor. They have doctors that come in and there are seven residents for each caregiver.

Enjoyable experience

I have no complaints about the tour I had taken of this community. The staff where on time to our appointment and made sure to answer any questions that we had for them. It was just not the right choice for him in the end decision.
