I Visited This Facility

I visited Lakewood Estates. The place was good. They offer a standard package. They offer room cleaning and some assistance to a degree with medication application. They also provide transportation for shopping. They did not offer other levels of care themselves. However, if you want to hire a third party to come in and do some of those things, you can do that. The staff was very energetic and congenial.

I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

Mom is in Lakewood Estates. It seems like the building is older, but it's very nice. I like it because it's smaller and everything comes back to the middle. Somebody couldn't get lost because you go down to the end of the hall, turnaround, and come back. I like that, and I absolutely love Kelly who's the salesperson there. She's an absolute delight. She totally sold us with how she handled my mom. She's great. Everything is included in the cost, like the food, and they have people on-site if you want to use them for pill management and that kind of stuff, but you can also use somebody else. Everybody that I've met there is just great. There's a nice little outside, and she has a tiny little deck. I just liked everything about it. She goes downstairs for meals and activities.

I visited Lakewood Estates, but the place was tiny and rundown. The people were nice, but residents looked old and fragile. The staff was friendly.

The lady that showed me around Lakewood Estates was very nice and gave me a thorough tour. The apartment that I saw was lacking kitchen facilities, the refrigerator was tiny, and there was no cooktop nor microwave. The other issue was if I didn't like anything -- like if I wanted the bathroom painted blue -- I have to do it myself. I feel that the community should be doing it. They had activities in the gathering room and somebody comes in from outside to perform regularly. They had a nice library, it looked cozy. The place was recently done and the decor in the common area was nice. The community is old, but it fits in with the neighborhood.

I toured Lakewood Estates independent living. A part of it is really old-looking and run-down. It was more of an assisted living center and I was looking for total independence and not the kind of tied-down feeling. One of the things I did not like was they expect you to take all your meals in the dining area. The rooms were okay, but a bit small, and the kitchenette area was also really small. It felt a bit confining. I had a meal there and the food was really good. I chatted with several of their ladies on a tabletop for four and they were very positive.

Lakewood Estates is an attractive place. We liked the inside, outside, and the size. It had about 100 rooms. Everybody was really friendly, and it was very pretty. They had a studio, which was what my dad wanted, and it was in a good location in the building. The person in charge, Chris, was really nice and helpful. When we visited, they had a special slideshow for the residents, which was really cute.

I like Lakewood Estates, but the problem is the cost. What I like about them is their location, and we love the community and this is where we want to live. I saw their rooms, but that was the drawback. It was not to our liking because it was too small. The activities that they have are excellent.

Lakewood Estates has private apartments at independent living level only. They offer a number of amenities including a library, gym, daily activities, evening and weekend live bands and high teas, a holiday travel program that allows a resident to stay at another Holiday Touch community for free for one week. They are private pay only but do take Veterans aid and attendance benefit.
