Lakeview Estates – Reviews
Lakeview was our first experience with long term care. We didnt know any better and based on our sample of one, we thought they were average. Boy, were we wrong!! Since then weve had experience with a couple of other facilities, and by comparison, they highlight just how wonderful Lakeview is. Their staff is experience and kind. They genuinely cared for my mother. The facility isnt the most beautiful from the outside, but inside -- the parts that actually matter to the residents -- its nicely decorated, beautifully clean, and the view of the lake is soothing. Camaraderie among the residents is heartwarming. They genuinely care for one another. You dont find that just everywhere. I highly recommend Lakeview Estates.
This is such an awesome place. My Mother has been there only two weeks and she tells me how nice everyone is to her. I know that is true because I have met so many wonderful and caring staff members. I know my Mother is getting the best possible care.
My mother is at lakeview and it is a fantastic place. She has improved so much since being there. They celebrate every holiday with a party. There is an activity or 2 everyday. Best of all, there is an in house beauty shop. Lakeview rocks!!
Lakeview is a wonderful home-like facility. My aunt has received outstanding care for 2.5 years now. As it often is with dementia patients, she had a difficult time transitioning to a facility from home. The staff was very helpful with the change. She settled into a daily routine in about three months. My aunt isnt very social and the staff encourages her and reminds her to join in the activities. She very much enjoys the meals and has gained some security weight. The director and staff quickly respond to any inquiries and keep us informed about her health. We toured four other facilities and none of them were as nice or clean as Lakeview! Highly recommend this facility!
My mom has been living at Lakeview Estates for nearly 2-1-2 years and we have been very happy with her care. Management has been responsive and helpful. Everyone works to ensure the residents receive the best of care. The building is lovely, the food is good, and there is a wide variety of activities throughout the day. Lakeview Estates also hosts special functions for residents and their families throughout the year. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is due to the high turnover in direct-care staff.
Our family views Lakeview as more than just a clean and attractive living facility. For approximately four years, it was HOME for my mom. While living there, she was respectfully cared for by staff who were loving, kind, knowledgeable and professional. Even though my mom is no longer with us, we continue to enjoy dropping by occasionally for a visit!!
I am a dispatcher with a local plumbing company that services Lakeview Estates. It has been a pleasure to work with Horace Kelly in Maintenance, He is always concerned with repairs having as little as possible disruption for the residents at Lakeview, for example, he is aware of their bath schedules and has any work required scheduled with us to not disrupt their normal routine. Horace responds quickly to emails from us requesting information and is always available when we reach out to him by phone. Having a dedicated employee like Horace to communicate with enables us to better serve the needs of Lakeview Estates.
Having been in the health care industry for 19 years and working along side many memory care facilities and assisted living facilities, I must say that Lakeview ranks one of the highest quality facilities that I have the pleasure to servicing. The staff is responsive and caring to the many residents that live at Lakeview. From the front desk girl Pamela to the clinical staff and everyone in between, this place is a wonderful!!! if you are considering memory care for your loved one, I would highly recommend this beautiful facility.
Everyone at Lakeview Estates has been kind and caring to both my mom and our family. They have helped all of us in the transition over the almost two months my mom has been a resident there. They are supportive, responsive and willing to answer questions. They understand dementia and try to meet Moms needs by adapting their care as needed. The setting is lovely, the food is good, and they are welcoming whenever we visit.
Lakeview Estates is an exceptional facility! Its kind and caring staff go above and beyond with their duties!! The residents are well taken care of, happy, healthy and active! The beautiful facility makes it a home to so many!!
All of the staff here are amazing! The residents are happy and so full of life due to the amazing care and encouragement they receive each day! They are always involved in some of the most amazing activities and fun times!! I highly recommend Lakeview Estates!!
I have visited this facility numerous times and I am always so impressed with the professionalism of the staff and management. Everyone is so friendly and residents are very happy! Highly recommend Lakeview Estates!
I am pleased to share a review for Lakeview Estates! I have visited the community on multiple occasions and am always impressed with the operations of the community. The residents appear active and engaged in meaningful activities. The staff is cheerful and always helpful when needed. Most importantly, the care provided to the residents of the community is top notch. It is definitely evident that the management and administrative staff are involved in the day-to-day operations and are dedicated to ensuring the community is ran professionally and in accordance with the regulations governing the facility. I would recommend Lakeview Estates to anyone in need of Assisted Living or Memory Care services for themselves or their loved one(s).
The staff and residents are so kind in how they treat mom. There are lots of activities and they take great care of the residents. It was such a huge relief to the family to know that she was happy, well taken care of and she settled in quicker than we ever imagined!
Both of my parents have dementia, and I had done all I could to care for them from my home. Two of my doctors told me that some of their clients were also in my situation, and had really good things to say about Lakeview Estates. During my tour the residents and staff warmly greeted me. The staff are professional, the facility is spotless, and ambiance is warm, cozy and family oriented. When my parents moved there, their nurses and caregivers embraced them and helped them adjust to this change in their lives. My parents are active, happy, growing spiritually and socially, and they are treated with respect and dignity. I couldnt ask for anything more.
Lakeview Estates is a very caring place for those wth memory disabilities. It is a secure environment which gives family members peace of mind. My mother-in-law moved in almost one year ago and is very happy living at Lakeview Estates. The staff are always friendly and the ladies at the desk in the lobby are some of the sweetest. They offer plenty of group activities as well as some local day trips.
Lakeview Estates is a wonderful, caring assisted living facility. Under the expert leadership of Callie Simmons along with nursing director Lynn Rogers, Lakeview is the very best that Birmingham has to offer. My mother was well taken care of and enjoyed living at Lakeview. She has now passed away, but I still feel part of the Lakeview family.
Both of my parents have been at Lakeview. My father is still there. I love Lakeview. They always have activities going on that give my dad a sense of purpose. All of the staff and even the visitors for other residents are so friendly - it is dads home away from home. I never worry about dad, because I know that he is being cared for and looked after.
FIRST, I would like to explain that my wife and I have a pretty good working knowledge of Assisted Living Facilities (ASL) in that my wife at one time was a director of an ASL. SECOND, I nor anyone in my family has a vested (personal or business) interest in Lakeview Estates. Now for the review: Our mother was at Lakeview Estates on (2) different occasions. The first time was for approximately 6 months while completing rehab following (successful) cancer treatments. The facility, management and staff were excellent and it was an pleasant experience. Our mothers second stay at Lakeview was a couple of years later and this stay was for approximately 2 years. Initially, we were less than impressed with Lakeview and stated our opinions in the end of the year survey...I am sure that I was not the only one that was not happy with the facility! Approximately 6-8 weeks after the survey, a new manager was hired (Callie Simmons) and IMMEDIATELY things begin to change. First, it was the facility became cleaner, painting, new carpeting, new furniture in the lobby, etc...However, the most significant improvements were that the residents and the staff were NOTICEABLE happier (my wife told me that when the residents and the staff are smiling that this is the sign of a well managed ASL). Eventually our mother passed away; however, the staff and management at Lakeview were nothing short of WONDERFUL (in every since of the word). The staff CONSISTENTLY went above beyond What they were required to do in the daily care of our mother. The director (Callie) was frequently in communication with us...consultations, discussions regarding the future care plans, and phone calls when problems (potential or otherwise) arose. A couple of months after our mother passed away, I went to see Callie and told her that we would like to purchase a gift for the staff and told Callie if it helps the residents; that is wonderful; however, we want to let the staff know of our appreciation for the manner in which they (the staff) cared for our mother. After thinking over this for several weeks, Callie back to let me know what the staff needed and we immediately purchased the item(s) and had these shipped to Lakeview Estates. Several times over the past couple of years, I have been asked (by my peers) what was our opinion of Lakeview Estates and I tell them (what is in this review) and then add as long as Callie Simmons is the director of Lakeview Estates; it will continue to be a well ran ASL that cares for its. patients.
I highly recommend Lakeview. It is a wonderful homelike specially memory care facility! They also provide a memory care unit for those with Alzheimers and other cognitive impairments. All the staff provide warmth and happiness to the residents and treat them like family. They also provide a wonderful array of activity programs for the different cognitive levels of the residents, which keeps them active, engaged, and entertained!
My mother is treated with kindness and patience. Im so glad that the staff has tried to get to know mom and her special ways. They speak sweetly to her and act as though they understand the conversation. They answer moms questions even when the question doesnt make sense. The facilities are always clean and pleasant. This is especially important to me and my mom. And, the dining experience is lovely. The residents are treated with respect and very good sit down meals, three times a day. And the residents are also served snacks from a snack cart wherever the residents may be in the facility. My mom usually stays in the front living room, but she also participates in the activities, which is nice. It was fun watching them play noodle ball (which is where you hit a balloon with a pool noodle). It was amazing to see how this sparked the residents natural ability to bat at the balloon. So cute.
I loved visiting this community on several different occasions. The administrative staff worked hard to ensure that they were providing outstanding care to their residents and treat each resident with total respect. The environment was positive, upbeat, and the staff was very helpful. They would also assist with entertaining and engaging their minds in meaningful activities daily. I would recommend this community to anyone looking for Memory Care-Assisted Living arrangements for their loved one in this area. They go above and beyond to ensure they are a 5 star community at Lakeview Estates!
My Mother was well taken care of at Lakeview Estates and while she has passed away, I will always be grateful for the caring leadership Callie Simmons brought. I appreciated the loving staff - whatever their particular area of responsibility - they carried it out with diligence and compassion. As a family member of a resident I was not only impressed with how well they cared for my mother, but their responsiveness to my questions or needs as well. I would not hesitate to recommend Lakeview Estates.
I visit this facility as a Home Health Care representative and I love Lakeview! The staff are so attentive to the residents needs and the residents are all so happy! I highly recommend Lakeview Estates if you are looking for memory care for a loved one!
