Magnolia North (assisted living unit) is a terrible place. We moved my mother in there in September 2021. She lived for four more days, before passing. Doctor Bagne (the owner) promised everything before I signed the contract. Once mom was moved in, assistance was next to impossible to get. The night before her passing she was unable to summon help. I never did get to talk to Dr Bagne after mom moved in and died. I made multiple attempts verbally through her assistant and in writing......no response ever!

It's hard to believe this place is still open. The owner/President is one of the most evil, self-serving individuals I ever met in my life. I am surprised she hasn't been sued, but then again, she's a lawyer along with one of her sons. I noticed that several of these comments have been written by her relatives. She has cameras everywhere, and if she doesn't think you are dressed well, or appear to have money she will call the front desk and tell the receptionist to not give you a tour!! I am not making this stuff up. I know everyone I worked with has since left. The turnover of staff is unbelievable. She doesn't give a damn about the residents. She will sell you the sun, moon and stars to get you to sign on the dotted line. She claims to have staff on both sides (assisted and independent) 24/7. Not true. No one is at that front desk at either location at night. If there's an emergency one of the caregivers from the assisted side needs to handle it. The assisted side has the ability to lock down, however since it's assisted living, residents have the right to come and go. Families don't realize that this is not a skilled nursing facility. I found a resident in the middle of Cass Lake with her walker with traffic zooming around her! You can't make this stuff up! STAY FAR, FAR AWAY!

This is Shelly Ann, Ms. Tracies (AKA Candy Rain) Supervisor. I would like to respond by saying first of all Ms. Tracie your name is not Candy Rain. As the Scheduling Manager it is important to meet the needs of the Residents which requires employees to be scheduled every other weekend. Ms. Tracie has requested schedule changes frequently with last minute requests which we have accommodated, yet Ms. Tracie does not show up even for the days she requests requiring other employees to fill in for her. I have been at Magnolia by the Lakes for over three years and in my opinion Magnolia by the Lakes sets the highest standard of Care with Compassionate and Resourceful employees, Ms. Tracie has been the exception. I formally request that you remove your libelous statements. Otherwise, your Employer may be forced to take the necessary legal remedies.

Magnolia by the Lakes is the most caring and friendly and safe facility I know. This guy Dave Skelton is bitter because his wife Elizabeth who was an employee at Magnolia was let go and he is bashing the place out of spite and hatred. Magnolia staff are extremely nice and loving. You will not find another place like Magnolia. Shame on you Dave and Elizabeth. You are playing with the lives of seniors because of your own inadequacy.

Living at the Magnolia by the Lakes facility is a blessing. The owner is kind and generous and is meticulous and takes care of the residents and staff as if they were all family members. The place is absolutely beautiful, the food is fantastic and the staff are so caring and wonderful. You must come and see it for yourself. Two thumbs up!

A senior living facility should be rated by its ambiance, cleanliness, staff, food, units and safety. Magnolia by the Lakes (both independent and assisted living) gets five stars in all of these factors. The buildings are beautiful. The chandelier in Magnolia south takes your breath away. The place is meticulous. The Owner pays attention to every detail. The staff are well dressed and treat you with respect and understanding. The President and, owner is professional, kind and genuinely cares for seniors. She spends as much time with residents as they want, answering questions and helping them in anyway she can. The staff is caring, dress well and are extremely professional. The food is great and the chefs prepare the meals according to your diet. The Owner who is also the President and CEO treats the staff and residents with respect and understanding. She is kind and generous. As soon as you walk in , you hear residents laughing and telling you how happy they are at Magnolia. You must visit Magnolia to really appreciate how. Wonderful it is. Anyone who writes a negative review must have an ulterior motive.

I want to share how proud I am to work at Magnolia by the lakes for the past 3 years. I enjoy knowing that I am aiding in providing a great service to our Seniors. Dr Bagne, our founder, president & owner truly cares about seniors getting the best experiences and care during the Fall/Winter of their life. Magnolia is clean, has a very friendly/caring staff, the food is wonderful and is managed wonderfully. Our owner is on site 5 days or more a week to oversee that the upmost high standards are being met.

This is response to Kosher Fortress who is upset because Magnolia HR Department requested information about her background. I think that it is admirable that Magnolia checks personal information. Without the drug test and background check, residents would be vulnerable to scams, theft and worse. Thank you Magnolia for doing such a great job. I feel sorry for Kosher who obviously could not pass the background check and thus didnt get the job. If you cant pass the background check, you shouldnt be working at a senior community any way.

Had a wonderful time at Magnolia by the Lakes Holiday party for their residents! It was so nice to see my Mom so happy! The entertainment that was provided actually got my Mom up dancing before dinner! The food was delicious! I feel very comfortable with my mother living at Magnolia, she use to be so depressed with nothing to do, now I have to see if I can fit in her calendar! Wonderful place!

We chose Magnolia by the Lakes for soooo many reasons. Every team member there genuinely cared about my father and remembered every detail. This was his 3rd move to an assisted living and he couldn't be happier. There is so much for him to do and keep him busy. He really enjoys himself there which is all we could ask for! Thank you Magnolia Family. You have made this difficult transition so much easier. We are forever grateful!

Came from New Orleans to visit a friend who resides at Magnolia By The Lakes and was in awe of its beauty and how amazing the staff was. Also, I’m not sure why another reviewer said there were no American flags, there are SEVERAL American flags all over the property. Love this location! If only I lived in Michigan, I would move in immediately!

I toured the Independent Senior Community of Magnolia by the Lakes and I couldn't believe my eyes- the picturesque setting, the high ceilings, the gracious apartments and the gorgeous views- all starting about $3,000. My parents live in Florida and it is so nice that Magnolia has an enclosed bridge connecting several buildings. My parents are coming to visit Magnolia.This place is worth a visit. I wish I were old enough to live there! Nice job. highly recommend.

Magnolia by the Lakes is by far the most beautiful place that I've seen for senior living! The sunsets are soothing and vibrant; it is such a treat to watch the sailing regattas across the lakes. I would highly recommend a visit and see for yourself all the wonderful things they have to offer!

As a resident here I can tell you that the people here are the greatest. There is one person in-particular that deserves recognition, Tina goes above and beyond in her care and consideration of the Magnolia residents. I can tell that Tina genuinely cares about us all and I really appreciate having her here as my Magnolia family. Thank you everyone for all you do!!

Magnolia by the Lakes is a very high-end facility. It had beautiful rooms and great structure, but it was very expensive based on their cost model. I went into their independent living facility, which was a six-floor building structure. I got a tour through one of their single bedroom and two-bedroom apartments. It was a very nice facility with very beautiful rooms. It looked like they had a really elegant dining area. I saw the exercise facility, and I was given a list of the activities they published for the month. I didn't have issues with the staff.

Magnolia by the Lakes was very good. They were very caring people. The facility was great. It was a little on the small side, but it was clean. They were in the process of expanding. The price was a little on the high side, but it definitely would have been a place I would have considered. However, the facility was a long distance away from me, which was an issue. I recall that there were good activities; they would go out and do activities within the facility.

Magnolia by the Lakes was very nice. It was a brand-new, small place but way too expensive. They were building more units of permanent apartments for seniors across the street from the facility. So, it was very nice. They had a Jacuzzi pool, computer room, television room, and exercise room. The rooms were beautiful. When we first walked in, there were flowers on the table and it was very pretty. There were only 20 residents. I was a little disappointed that you had to bring your own bed and a stand for your own TV. They said they could possibly bring something in for your clothes to hang. I did not care for that. I thought for the money that you were paying, you would have a nice hospital bed, but they did not have anything supplied. I was not too thrilled with the rooms, and the view was of bushes. The two-bedroom we saw didn't even have a view. For me, I like to look outside and see something.

Magnolia by the Lakes is a smaller facility, but it is very clean and very well managed. Jason was there when we went for a tour, and he was very thorough and very professional. It's a brand-new building that opened only eight months ago. They have a beautiful dining room, exercise room, and a theater room. The staff is all very friendly, helpful, and taking good care of my dad.
