We chose to have Meadow Lakes of East Windsor for my mother-in-law, but she's not settled in yet. We're just completing all the necessary papers to be done. It's a continuing care retirement community situated in a beautiful place surrounded with nature. It just felt like you're in a safe environment. The people and the staff are all wonderful. They are very friendly and extremely nice. I'm pretty sure my mother-in-law will be happy in this place. I'd be glad to recommend Meadow Lakes to others.

This is a wonderful facility that encourages socializing among people who otherwise wouldn't have much. Had she been living elsewhere when my grandfather died I'm not sure my grandmother would have fared so well. She still lives on her own and is able to dine with her friends in the dining hall and we know that if something were to happen to her she'd be 1) found, and 2) well taken care of. She is turning 95 this year and plays croquet in friendly competitive league at Meadow Lakes during the summer. She plays bridge year round. The staff all know her name and say hello in the halls. They treat her with kindness and respect, even though she can be frustrating (she doesn't remember things you've just told her, and can be a little rude to 'the help'). Her apartment is always clean, and I know the staff cleans it. They have a guest house, but this time we stayed in an empty unit they have available, which was wonderful. The wait staff in the dining hall isn't always very attentive, but they are mostly high school students so that's not too surprising. Overall, I wish every old person could stay somewhere so nice, that goes to such lengths to keep the elderly independent and engaged.

Our search for a retirement community is very complicated like the story of love. It's not an easy decision to make. First of all we like our home. Secondly we have certain criteria like we want the retirement community near to our doctors and still continue to see these doctors. Another is my wife would like to have a place wherein there's a pool that she can use almost on a daily basis. We came across with Meadow lakes and what I like best is that it's really not that far away. It seems that there are interesting group of people there.The place and their program in general seems good. The staff was very accommodating and they are lots of things about the place that I like. There are just couple of things my wife is concerned about. One is that it's very close to a lot of bars and we have a lot of ambiguous feelings about being close to bars. The other thing is that apparently the campus is very large and my wife has to take a motor car like a little motor thing to get her to one place to another. At this point I think my wife isn't quite sure she she wants to leave our house. I think that it's a problem because we have health issues so I really thing we have to go.
