Customer Reviews

Welcoming but Understaffed

My brother has been a resident for several months now. Lamar Court is a very friendly, welcoming place to live. They are however understaffed. This puts pressure on the hard-working staff who do their best and on the residents who are not getting their needs met in a timely manner. Activities are great. The cook is excellent but the service which is contracted out is very poor. Nursing care is excellent. The cost is reasonable.

Sorry not sorry...worst place EVER

This place is a complete fraud!! The only reason they have good reviews is because they had a contest on how many people can get good reviews for them. And in exchange they would win some lottery tickets.95% of the people who have put a review for this place are family members of employees and know absolutely nothing about what really is going on behind them closed doors!! You have staff members who ask family members for money. Staff members run the facility not administration! To where residents no personal business about staff members. Administration is rude conniving and just straight-out frauds!! This is not an assisted living facility, it's more like a skilled facility. You have residence who where accepted and lied to about the services they would get. But Lamar Court can't even properly staff their own facility. They leave the care of your loved ones in the hands of only one CNA and one nurse for 84 residents. Which the last time I knew was the legal with the Kansas State board of nursing. Awesome have even covered up reasons why residents have passed away in order to save their own behind by coaxing employees on what to say. Had a woman die because the CNA dropped her pushing her in her walker the wrong direction and ended up breaking her back and four places and eventually died. They are also in legally giving a residence cat insulin knowing that is outside their scope of practice and license. You have several employees who have continuously been verbally abuse by one person who Lamar Court keeps making excuses for!! I wouldn't leave my worst enemies family member in this facility nor trust them to take care of them for they might end up dead as well.

My experience

My experience living at Lamar court has been pleasant. The resident wonderful. However, I feel the facility is drastically understaffed and has been for some time.

Resident

I value the sense of community here at Lamar Court. The residents have become like family to me and i really enjoy the activities and the outings that are planned for us. The staff work really hard to make sure that we're taken care of, but they could definitely use more CNAs' in order to reduce wait times before a residents call light is answered.

Working in the industry

By working in the nursing industry coupled with my mother being in nursing care since the 90's, I have extensive experience with many facilities in the area. In the rated categories and comparable price range, I have not found a location that surpasses Lamar Court. The employees are friendly, happy, and energetic. This translates directly to the residents who display similar attitudes.

Being in the nursing industry coupled with my mother being in nursing care since the 90's, I have extensive experience with a large number of facilities in the area. In the rated categories, I have found no other location that surpasses Lamar Court in similar price range and care offered. The employees are friendly and energetic, which translates to happy residents.

Definitely liked this place - bustling with people assisting residents. All floors were active with people who could help if a resident needed assistance. Facility was updated and very clean. The director has been with the same group of communities for 7 years and was very helpful.

For good care, look elsewhere

If I could rate it zero stars, I would. My moms room was left unclean until a private pay nurse came and yelled at them for neglecting to clean her room and bathroom. The administration changes every few months and seems to have gotten worse each time.
After experiencing a fall, my mother was taken to the hospital and then to rehab. When it was time for her to return home to Lamar court, i was told that she could not come back (they said this before reassessing her). They didn’t even have the courtesy of telling my mother directly (and she had been living there for seven+ years! They gave me two days to find her a new home.
If you want honest people and good care, look elsewhere because you will not find it at Lamar court!

Very nice layout

What I love about the facility is their layout. The actual property, from what I understand, was previously own by Sprint a part of what was like a corporate hotel. The floor plan of the place is in a V/L shape so it is an easy layout. For residents who have dementia it’s rather easy to navigate compared to a traditional square floorplan. I liked the staff as well; they seemed friendly and very flexible. With other properties they set a one hour time for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It was too much of a regime for my loved one. However here, there are open hours and people can go eat anytime that they want. Another thing that was beneficial is that they accept Medicare after 12 months of private pay. Overall, I would recommend this facility to others.

Room Improvement, but Overall Father is Okay

My father is doing okay since his move to this community, but I do have some concerns. He is still adjusting, and I do feel he is safe, and in good hands. One of my concerns is they are slow with getting anything fixed. He has had a/c problems, door issues. The responsive time of the maintenance needs to be quicker. The staff is kind, and very helpful. I do have to let my father know that they are there to help him when he needs it. His room is pretty clean, but they are doing some updating around the community. So the cleanliness of the community isn't the best. Hopefully when they are done, the cleanliness improves. I have had a meal, and the food is good. My father seems to like the meals. Overall there is room for improvement, but I would recommend this community.

Be cautious but trying to improve

Lamar Court keeps trying...Seems like consistent staffing turnover as well as quality maintenance challenges. Finally getting much delayed updating. Cooks change more than the menu. Reminders for your loved one needs are an asset. Medical staff tries -- had has improved of late. Organization would be key improvement.

Current director is trying to improve the property but so much to do. Fairly good activities for residents to enjoy. Nice to have a stylist come for residents.

Caring bunch!

Things have gone really well here for my loved one. We love the staff and how friendly and caring they are. My loved one has started to get involved with some of the activities that they offer. They have indoor activities and outings that they go on. The food taste good and there is variety.

Pretty good place!

The community at Lamar Court seemed to be pretty nice. The staff that offered the tour were very friendly and courteous. They were upfront and honest with everything. We did not choose Lamar Court because they did not offer the level of care that our loved one required.

My Mother enjoyed the activities and food offered by Lamar Court. The layout of the facility was very confusing to her in light of her memory issues.

Not An Honest Community

We did not have a good experience with this community. They did not care for my father and his needs well at all. The management is not very good here. They are not good at responding to my concerns. I feel like they are not very honest and are hiding things. Their skilled nurses do not have licensees. Also we had some insurance problems. They lied to my father and I would never recommend this community to anybody.

License should be revoked

Run don't walk away from this facility. It's filthy and run poorly with a revolving staff. If you want to provide all the care while they take your money; then this is the place for you!

Mom's Happy

My mother in law has been here for about two months. The staff is great, they have really pulled her in to the activities, she tells us that she's busy. She looks forward to getting her nails and hair done every week. We eat there at least once a week and enjoy the food.

It's very clean and the staff is really friendly.

It's very clean and the staff is really friendly. They seem to be attentive and responsive to any requests or concerns. I'm not real familiar with the activities, but they did have a painting class. I'm having a little trouble with the billing. I have heard good things about the food, but I have not tried the food myself. It would also be nice to have a little bit of detail accompany any complaints or concerns that might come up, and be brought to the attention of the family. Some suggestion of what to do, would be nice.

Wonderful Community for Seniors

My mother lived at Lamar Courts for about 6 weeks before she passed away. Her apartment was small but very nice and the meals were great. There was lots of variety and it was prepared very well. The staff was so friendly and kind. They knew all the residents names and made them feel special. She was well cared for by the CNAs and the nurses. I can't say enough about how accommodating every one was from the front desk to the nurses office. The community areas were cheerful and decorated lovely. Although my mother did not participate, there were so many activities offered every day. We were so happy with the care my mother received at Lamar Courts and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a Senior Living Community.

It's going pretty good so far.

It's going pretty good so far. It's definitely clean. Everyone is pretty friendly. They have activities, getting people to go is more of the issue. They have it set up where you order food off a menu, which works better for my loved one.

Communication and follow through have...

Communication and follow through have been challenging. They say the right things but then I have to ask repeatably. Food is ok but limited choices & not always practical for seniors ( chili is on the menu but not chicken noodle soup). Extremely limited male staff especially for the number of male residents.

Very good! Very Friendly

I’d give the staff a six out of five! My loved ones have been there a few months and they just have had no complaints, very friendly people. The food is good. They enjoy the activities. There is enough parking. I looked at a lot of communities before picking this one.

Friendly and caring; but dated

Terrific staff. Very attentive and caring. Outstanding food, too. They could stand to update their decor a bit - a bit "late 1980s" in theme. Something to make the lobby and living areas much brighter and cheerful would help.

Thanks 'a place for Mom' for finding Lamar Court

What a relief to have found lamar court through 'a place for mom'. Not only is the facility clean and updated with GREAT FOOD, but the staff is incredible. It is no wonder they won the Pinnacle Award last year for Assisted living facilities in Johnson County. My mom is happy there and that is what makes all the difference.

This is the first one we looked at. I...

This is the first one we looked at. It seems good, maybe not as much hanging out with people as we'd like but friendly and nice. We like the level system.
