I am/was a resident of this facility
I have been a resident of The Lorelton since 2007. It is fine. The staff members are all very nice and very helpful. However, I'm not happy with the food. We only have two choices and one is always seafood. I don't like seafood. We used to have a lot of choices, but not anymore. Since we have another cook, he has the same menu every other week and I'm not happy with that. I have an apartment, with a kitchen, a bathroom, a living room and a bedroom. The Lorelton is excellent.
I Visited This Facility
I visited The Lorelton. The place was wonderful and the residents were very nice people. The apartments were beautiful, I wish I could have stayed there myself. The place is clean, attractive, and I liked it very much. I would rate them the highest across all directions.
