I Visited This Facility

My mother will be moving within the next week or so to Lake St. Charles Retirement Community. The place is perfect, fit in our budget, and exactly what she wanted. The staff knew almost everybody's name and was very personable. It's the whole package. The room was 600 square feet and very nicely laid out. She's going to have a one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, a full-size refrigerator, and her own microwave. She has an electric stove and cabinet space, and in the living room we're going to have a couch, a coffee table, television, a grandfather clock and a cabinet. In her bedroom, she's going to have a full dresser, king-size bed, and a computer desk. It's going to be very good. They have three levels, and she's on the lower floor because she has a dog and has to be able to take him outside through the patio door. It's everything she needs. We had lunch, and my mom and I were very impressed. The food was fantastic. It's been around since 1984 and the ambience was appropriate for her. We also liked that they were not just independent living. Under the same roof, they had 26 rooms for assisted living and a nurse. She had a couple strokes and didn't really need the assisted living, but she couldn't really "stay by herself," so she's going to pay $20 a day to have a nurse come three times a day to check on her bed and give her diabetes shot.

Lake St. Charles did not have as much to offer, and I didn't feel good about it. We didn't like the meal programs. It did not have a good value for money. The rooms were not that big, the kitchen had no microwave and dishwasher, but it did have a buffet, which was a plus.

Description of Lake St Charles Retirement Community

Our mission is “To create an affordable living center for seniors with innovative services for a lifestyle of encouragement & convenience.” To accomplish that, our community boasts longevity of staff (come see our “Wall of Fame”) with very little turnover of employees. Our seasoned staff knows where it’s been & where it’s going. But best of all, we enjoy our senior customers.

Lake St. Charles is located on a beautiful hillside with a panoramic lake view in convenient St. Charles, Missouri.

Offering “choices” is our specialty, from optional meal plans, how you spend your leisure time, to various financial rental arrangements, and 5 sizes of apartments!

Various “levels of care” are important so we offer independent lifestyle, wellness assistance, day care, licensed assisted living, plus skilled nursing & rehab next door at NHC St. Charles. For convenience, we have a Physician’s office right here, staffed by Gerontologists from St. Louis University.

Yet we are affordable! Check out our “Cost Comparison Worksheet”. We encourage you to call our Community Coordinators for details on Price Plans and Payment Plans, all designed to help our seniors maintain control of their finances.
