I like Lansdowne Heights. Staff is very nice and friendly, and the residents are well taken care off.

If you are reading this, then you’re probably making one of the most difficult decisions of your life: how to best resolve care for a loved one? I know this was THE hardest decision I ever had to make. First, to get over the stigma of seeking outside help was an admission of failure, to dishonor a loved one. That myth couldn’t be farther from the truth. To acknowledge I could no longer care for my husband, or keep him safe, nearly crushed my spirit. Then I met the incredible kind and caring staff here at Lansdowne Heights. They make his life productive; he’s happy, safe and thriving. And I can breathe again.
I didn’t give up on him, or give him away, I delegated those chores I could not do in order to focus on what I do have: the core essence of my husband of almost 42 years. No one ever knows how long they have with a loved one, ensuring the remaining time is a comfort, should be one of the determining factors when deciding where and how to arrange for a loved one’s care. I can’t say this was an easy decision, or that I’ve easily adapted, but my husband has in his time at Lansdowne!
Life is better knowing he’s well taken care of by the kindest, most generous group of people I’ve ever met. There has not been one staff member who hasn’t exhibited the highest concern for his individual wellness. This is peace of mind I didn’t have while caring for him alone. I believe this decision defined the depth of my love for him by reaching out for help. I could no longer care for him alone and the staff at Lansdowne helped make the decision a positive action – not a negative one.

Lansdowne Heights Memory Care staff gets 5 stars plus plus plus, which has made the last 2 months stay of my mother filled with happiness, great health, and safety. Thank you to Bianca, Gary, Asiatu, CiCi, Marie, Jenny, Jennifer (reception), and Justin. Their teamwork to care for the memory care residents is excellent. They all go above and beyond to care for our mother.

My sisters told me they were applying for my mother to be accepted into LHMC (Lansdowne Heights Memory Care) back in early December 2021. Over the last couple of days, my sisters sent me videos of my mom singing, dancing, with big smiles among a group of seniors. I personally witnessed my mom suffer after my dad passed away and by the grace of God, LHMC accepted her and today, my mom is so happy and healthy. LHMC has an amazing and outstanding staff, leaders, and programs that transformed my mom from her poor physical and mental health and depression and truly gave her a new, healthy, and a meaningful joyful life.

We are so glad we found Lansdowne Heights. The two major reasons are: #1 All of the staff from the top down truly care for the residents. #2 The focus is solely on memory care (no other tiers). It feels like everyone here is an owner and they know the residents as individuals. After experiencing multi-tiered sites with Independent, Assisted Living and Memory Care, it is such a positive difference to have sole focus on memory care for my mother here at Lansdowne Heights.

Lansdowne Heights has been my mom’s home since July 2021. We are extremely happy with our choice. Alzheimer’s is such a tragic disease – the staff makes this journey a little less painful. Unlike other memory care facilities, everyone at Lansdowne has a smile on their face. They are always trying to anticipate my mom’s needs. It feels like my second home. Visiting hours are flexible. The facility itself is very well kept. I cannot recommend Lansdowne Heights enough. I feel very fortunate to have found such a hidden gem in the area. Please reach out to Bianca for more information if you’re in search of your loved one’s next step!!

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.
