    Lake Shore Commons is a wonderful and great facility. The apartments are wonderful, the staff is excellent, and the dining room was excellent, like a 5-star restaurant. They have a different menu every day, and the residents get to pick from three different main course choices. It was our first choice. They have an excellent program for the residents. They have a coffee bar and a snack bar open 24 hours. It was a very positive experience.

    My mother is a resident of Lake Shore Commons. They are fantastic. The community is ideal and incredibly positive, very supportive, and incredibly hospitable. There's a lot of people that genuinely seem to care. Almost everyone's been there for ten years plus and it shows because they enjoy their work. It's a great community, good people, great food, great environment. The apartments are fantastic. Everything about it is pretty ideal. They have tons of activities. There's a calendar of activities everywhere. The activities director makes announcements all the time and they do a good job of herding people into doing things. The food is fantastic, it's clean, and it's professional. The dining room is aesthetically pleasing. It's efficient and effective in the way that it's laid out. I didn't participate in any activities, but I'm enjoying the list and people seemed to flock to them. I just have a lot of gratitude for them. I couldn't have found a better fit for my mom.
