I am/was a resident of this facility
Searching for a facility can be a daunting undertaking. When visiting, it is not always enlightening to talk to the residents, for they have made a choice and do not like to think they made a bad choice. Instead one of the most telling indicators is to talk to the staff. A key question to be answered is their (staff) length of service. The longer the better is an indication of a good facility. At Lakeview it is not uncommon to find staff employed for 20+ years. At many facilities we visited, we found a rapid turnover of employees. Less than two years employment was common at many places. Look carefully at the financial model. Some will keep all of the "buy in". Others have a sliding scale that will reduce your equity by a certain percentage each year until it is gone. Lakeview guarantees you will receive your equity back (less a small fee for new carpeting, painting, etc.). This is an important consideration if you wish to pass something on to you heirs. Aside from all the above, we have been here more than 8 years, and have made many new friends and are more convinced than ever we made the right choice.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My grandmother in law stayed at this facility. From what I knew of it, having visited her a few times and my mother-in-law's opinion of it, it was very nice. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable. They helped care for my both my grandmother-in-law and my mother-in-law. My grandmother-in-law had Alzheimer so she could at times be difficult, but again the staff was very patient and knew exactly what to do and say. My mother-in-law had a hard time with her passing and the Lakeview Christian home showed such compassion and care for her. Very good, clean, organized yet homey facility as well.
