I Visited This Facility

Osprey Lodge was very expensive and the rooms were not much better than my mother's room. She has a lot more room where she is, but it's a beautiful facility. They have music going on and they have some beautiful community areas, but if you're in a less secure unit, you can't have access to them anyway. It was well-maintained, and the residents were very well taken care of. I saw two gardens there.

I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I stayed at Osprey Lodge, and it was OK, but they don't have anything physical for older people besides walking. It can be cleaner, especially with housekeeping, because they don't dust and really get behind everything. They have singing. The staff members were fine, they did their job, they did it well, and they were courteous. However, the nursing help was rude and not very accommodating.

My parents-in-law are in Osprey Lodge, but I'm not happy with it. The place is beautiful, but the nursing is terrible and the communication between nurses and the familes are awful. Their apartments are really nice, but the care is not good. They have lots of activities like music, games, and transportation. The food is terrible.

We loved Osprey Lodge and that's where we plan on going when necessary. Everything stood out, the rooms, all the facilities, and everything they do for you. They come in and make your bed every morning, they clean your room every week, do all your laundry, even personal laundry, you can have a dog and they'll walk it for you, and there are all kinds of activities and entertainment. They've got everything. They have anything you want as far as activities. The food was superb.

Osprey Lodge was very nice but very expensive. It looked like a log cabin on the inside, and it was really done very well. It was very beautiful.

Osprey Lodge is a nice, big place. The original owner sold it out to a bigger corporation. They are in the process of trying to get up to speed as far as running the place well, but the the salespeople were very nice.

Osprey Lodge is a very beautiful community. They explained everything to us stating there was always 2 sides to every problem, if one should arise. They told us my brother-in law was accepted, but, at the last minute they changed their minds because he was refusing to take a shower when they arrived to meet him. They found out later he was afraid of the water. They never took the time to hear the other side.

Thank you for your comment about Osprey Lodge. We are familiar with the situation you mention, and regret that we were unable to accept your brother-in-law at our community. While we cannot discuss those details here because of HIPAA regulations, we would be more than happy to speak with you if would like to reach out to us.

Osprey Lodge Assisted Living and Memory Care of Tavares was very nice, but the cost is too high for independent living. It's like a hotel, institutional, and mediocre. The dining area looked normal; not great, just medium. It looked too much like an old hotel, and I didn't care for it too much. It just has one main entrance, so I would imagine it should be a very secure place.

Thank you for your review of Osprey Lodge. We appreciate your compliment. However, Osprey Lodge does not offer independent living. The pricing you saw was for assisted living and/or memory care, which is a higher level of care than what is provided in independent living. That is likely why the pricing seemed higher to you. If you would like to call Osprey Lodge to discuss any of your comments, please feel free to do so.

Osprey Lodge was a nice, clean, and well-managed place. The staff was pleasant. It was not the right fit for my mom with her activity level.
