I visited this facility
Brookdale Lake View would not be good for my mother because she tends to wander. They didn't have a swimming pool, but they were nice. They offered me lunch and everything else was clean, comfortable, and all that good stuff. The staff who showed me around was good. They had enough activities to keep you busy. The menu had good choices.
I Visited This Facility
Brookdale Lake View was very attractive. What made me decide not to move in was the cost. The facilities were marvelous. The staff was great, and the food was very good. I have a friend who moved in there. They had an area with athletic equipment that you could use. They had beautiful lounges and areas for parties if you wanted to throw a personal party, and they had entertainers. It was very ideal and so well located. Everything was so nice.

This is an excellent independent or assisted living facility for seniors who prefer living close to the hustle and bustle of downtown. Located in Lakeview, only a block from the lake—with restaurants and activities of every kind nearby. The facility is exceptionally clean, and decorated in an elegant manner. Group outings go beyond the general, as many of the residents are really used to getting out and about. It is even easy to hail a cab to head out solo as active city seniors are often found doing. The daily menu is as well-thought out as a restaurant menu, but easily modified for dietary needs.
