Lantern of Chagrin Valley - Chagrin Falls, OH has yet not published prices.
The first question you should ask......
Tell me about management turnover. Step mother moved in in late June of 2017. Since then the entire staff has turned over something like four times. And I'm not just talking about aides. I think we may be on our 4th, 5th or 6th director of nursing. It makes it very difficult to get consistent care. You end up asking new and newer and newer people to check if the room is at a reasonable temperature, clothing is being changed and washed, is she getting out of her room, the basics. A very new, nice facility, bright, clean with well intentioned staff, however it is a revolving door for whatever reason and we have asked and asked. Expect alot of frustration.
The Lantern is very innovative and impressive. [name removed] was very nice and explained everything. The $3900 is the base price for assisted living but if dementia care is needed then there are added costs depending on stage and level of dementia and perhaps people should be aware of this up front. Also, I was surprised that at the Lantern you have to provide all your own furniture, even the bed. But then again, maybe some people would actually prefer that. Overall, though, it is a beautiful place.
Looks more like a Las Vegas hotel than a facility
I toured here when looking for a place for my mother. It was very nice but it was too far away. The building is gorgeous like a Las Vegas hotel. The rooms were outstanding and everything is brand spankin’ new. But as I was thinking about it later, I realized that it might be a little too garish. I didn’t think my mom would like that. The cleanliness was fantastic, though. The activities are kind of the same here as anywhere else: music, art, game playing, things like that. It was just a nicer facility. The person that took me on a tour was able to answer all of my questions and they were as nice as possible.
Lantern of Charing Valley is kind of an unfair comparison. When we toured, they had barely opened and they were not completely filled or fully staffed yet. It was a good concept and seemed like it would be a good place, but it was not what we were looking for at the time.
