We have been lucky to have our parents be the first residents at LH. It’s a beautiful facility and the staff is really great. It looks like an assisted living facility but all memory care. When we were looking at other places. We saw that the assisted living doors were very beautiful but then we would tour the memory care floor and it was institutional. That is not the case as LH. My parents room was decorated by me and we brought some of their furniture in and purchased some new with the Ambassador Family move in credit. Their room is beautiful and large. The bathroom is very upscale and also does not look institutional.
My parents look better, seem better and are being stimulated every day with activities and staff visits. The move in coordinator even polished my moms nails one day and they looked great. My mom loved it too.
With the pandemic going on, the administration and staff had a protocol which worked very well to keep everyone safe and COVID free. Although we can’t visit in our parents room since other families have moved in, we were visiting on the patio or window visits. Now we can visit in the conference room in the lobby which keeps everyone safe. The staff is so accommodating and seem to love their jobs. They wait on my parents hand and foot. The food and menu is prepared by the executive chef and looks like restaurant food. He also does cooking demos with the residents.
All in all it’s been a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it. I feel as though my parents are safer there than any place else as they were the only residents for 2 weeks when they moved in and were put in one wing to quarantine and then when they were clear, they move to their permanent room in the other wing.
I would say NOW is the perfect time to move in as they are doing rolling admissions and new residents can be quarantined and then free to interact with other Covid free residents once the 2 weeks are up.
