I Visited This Facility

I did not care for Brookdale Lake Tavares. It was not clean, and the receptionist was untrained and sounded totally helpless. We had a simple, OK lunch. We saw a one-bedroom and a two-bedroom apartment. The two-bedroom apartment didn't have a stove in the kitchen, which I wanted, and it was very small. Even the bedroom was small. Most of the rooms didn't have a good view; you're just looking out on a parking lot. It didn't have a swimming pool and it was more for sedentary residents. Meals were served at certain times. I had a salad, deviled eggs, and soup but the soup was not very good. There was no flavor. The deviled eggs were OK.

I Visited This Facility

Brookdale Lake Tavares is very nice but one thing I found out about them is if my sister becomes bedridden, I have to find another place for her. I really liked the community. It was very clean and had an outside patio with tables and chairs. It was on a lake and had seats down near the lake. It was very picturesque, and the scenery out in the back was gorgeous. The rooms were nice, too. They had a very large bedroom, living area, and kitchenette, so it’s adequate. The staff answered all of my questions. They had activities and a bus to take them to events, doctors, to the grocery store, or wherever they want to go.

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

My father lived in Brookdale Lake Tavares for over a year. It was a very nice place. Their dining room was beautiful. It was a nice big dining room overlooking the lake. The apartments were very nice, and they had 1 and 2 bedroom apartments. The staff was very good. They were very nice and friendly people. They go on outings and take you to the mall or take you shopping. They had an outing once a week to restaurants. I remember when my father was there that they took them to the baseball game at Tampa stadium. They also took them to the park and had barbecues, so they did a lot with them. They had a balcony on each floor that overlooked the dining area. Each apartment had a closed-in patio, which was nice, for people so they could sit outside if they wanted to.

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

A friend of mine is at Brookdale Lake Tavares, and I would not recommend it to anyone. I had some issues with them. I tried to call them and get them to respond, but they did not respond to me. They did not call me back in order for us to solve the situation. They call me when they have issues with her and are nice, but the minute that I had issues with them, they would not call me back. To me, the only thing they cared about is keeping that two-bedroom apartment rented. They don’t have a nice lobby where the residents can socialize. They had excellent food and a nice dining hall, but it lacks social room. The building is old, and they have issues with cable. From what I saw, the staff who are working with the residents are very good.
