I visited this facility

The Lakes is a nice facility but I don’t like it that two people shared the same room, there was just a little divider between them. The facility looks very nice but the residents and relatives of the residents were not as pleased with it.

I visited this facility

The Lakes was my first choice because it was close to where I live. But my father did not choose to stay there because everyone else in our family lives in Corona. One of the things I really liked was that there was a pool for water therapy. The residents could also have a barbecue and invite their family over to eat by the pool, and the family could go swimming, too. For people like my dad who can’t walk, he could still get in the pool and move. That’s why I thought it was pretty awesome. The Lakes is like a retirement community and there’s a really nice, upscale 55-and-over type of neighborhood called Sun Lake on the same street. I think it’s cool because the people who are in that independent living community can graduate from Sun Lake to The Lakes when they get to the point where they need assisted living. One thing I have discovered is that I definitely do not care for sales pitches and being harassed by salespeople who are constantly calling me to bring my dad to their place. That really bothers me. At The Lakes, they did not do that. They were very accommodating with any questions, and they’d call back but didn’t hunt you down like a used car salesman.

My mother has been living in The Lakes at Banning for five months now, and they're pretty good. Her room is very nice. She is in the smallest one you can get, which is all she needs. She has her own furniture in there, and the bathroom is huge. The whole place is very nice. The food seems to be fine as she enjoys everything she eats there. They could have more activities for them, though, and I would prefer having more activity directors come to the rooms. I wanted her close to us, and this place had a really good reputation.

Rudest Nurse Ever!!! Very unprofessional. It was hard enough getting my parents interested in an assisted living, but to be turned off because of someone's attitude - No Thank You. By the way "Very Expensive" compared to the near by options.

I not only visited, but I moved my mother into the Lakes on May 30th, and we are very happy with it. And, what I found was interesting as when we knew we needed a place to put my mother, at first I didn't think assisted living even in any way could be a possibility, but I thought, "Well, why don't I look into it?" And so what was explained -- and what I didn't quite get and probably a lot of people don't get -- is the fact that in assisted living, they have all kinds of supportive care. If you don't need any care, you don't have the care, but if you need help toileting or whatever, they have it. So it has been perfect, and my mom is very happy there. I am most impressed with the facility and the people. It is the perfect solution to what my mother needs right now at this time in her life. She is well cared for, and what I like is when she declines, the care can be increased. It is all very flexible, and I really like that.

My Dad lives at the Lakes in an efficiiency apartment. He's in his late 90's but still gets around using his walker. The staff are really nice and Dad has made several resident friends there to eat with in their dining room on the independent side of The Lakes. He enjoys their 11 AM exercise class and their weekly cleaning of his apartment.

My Mom recently moved into The Lakes. She has a bright and spacious apartment, the food is wonderful and the ENTIRE staff is very friendly and helpful. I'm also very impressed with the quality of people they hire and how much they care for and about their residents. From the housekeeping staff, front desk, activities coordinators and care teams, everyone we've met are very good and decent people and they all know and call the residents by their names. They also allowed her caregiver from a private agency to continue working with her. Most of the other residents have been very warm and welcoming and she is VERY happy to be living there. I agree with what the other reviewer said, the gal who originally showed us the facility immediately turned my Mom off, so much so she said she would never move there. I had to take her back several times to tour the facility and I asked that we be left to tour it on our own. They were only too happy to do so and even allowed us to eat lunch there one day and that's when my Mom decided she liked the place and wanted to move in. There were challenges prior to the move-in that I didn't think were necessary but all in all I am very happy and grateful that we found The Lakes. Most important, my Mom is very happy there.

My mother is in The Lakes at Banning. It is newer facility. It is nice and clean. We choose it because my brother lives near there. The staff is excellent and very friendly. They have good service and good care. The food is very good. They have activities like bingo, cards, exercises, entertainment and all kinds of stuff. My mother loves it.

Agreed that the facility is lovely, but the "get you in the door and forget you after that" attitude is sadly true.

Lakes Retirement Community was a nice facility. I had a nice ground. However, it was a little pricey. I also didn't like the lady that presented us the room. When I thought my clients could not afford them, she just kind of drop us after that. We weren't important anymore. She didn't try to work with us or offered any other possibilities or assistance.
