I visited Lexington Assisted Living. It was excellent. The living quarters were very nice. I talked to some people that lived there. They were satisfied. The staff was excellent. The dining room was set-up restaurant style. I had tasted the food. It was not like home cooking, but it was good. They had a lot of things that you could do.

My mother was at Lexington Assisted Living. The place was OK. They had calling buttons if you needed to call somebody. It was good. They have a pool, game room, exercises, and a whole lot of stuff going on for their residents.

Thank you for posting your positive experience. The staff will continue to strive for excellence.

The Lexington seemed a little more like a hotel than a home, and the people didn’t seem happy there. The staff seemed to be good, but the rooms are really small.

Provider Response

We visited The Lexington, and the people working there were good. We liked it. It was a nice place, and the rooms were nice. There was a swimming pool and a recreation area. Pricewise, it wasn't too bad.

We visited The Lexington, and it looked fine. The lady that helped us was very informative. The people seemed to be happy there. It was clean. You would have to get a geriatric psych evaluation to come in. We didn't expect that you would have to do that, and it was nice to gather that kind of information.

I think The Lexington and its assisted living was wonderful. It has a lot of common areas that are beautiful, spacious, and beautifully decorated. You could see people interacting. If my mother was able to do assisted living, I would have her go here as it was wonderful. The staff was good and on top of things. The people that were there appeared to be able to have a lot of independence and seemed happy and engaged. It was very well-kept. They have televisions for movies. It was top-notch.

I was not excited about the memory care. It was very small, which can be good for people with memory care because they don’t have a lot of area to have to navigate. It was not that bright in that little area, which wasn’t that great. It smelled a lot like urine in that place. The staff was wonderful. The patient rooms were nice, but the common or gathering area, which I noticed people spent a lot of time in, felt cramped to me as opposed to what I saw in other places. I just didn’t like the memory care.

I visited The Lexington for my father. It was better because it was, like, five minutes from my work, so it would have been convenient. They had different levels of care. They had a nice dining room. We had lunch there with the person when we had the tour. They had a newly renovated movie theater. They had a nice patio up on one of the rooms. It was really nice. The rooms were all nice. They had several different sizes, and they all looked like they would be nice. The staff was very friendly. Actually, I had to wait a little bit for my tour, so I saw the staff interacting with the people going in and out of the building, and everybody seemed very nice and friendly. Everybody knew everybody's name. There were some people doing crafts. They actually had an activity director there, and that was nice. They make sure that everybody was involved in something.

The rooms were nice. They were mainly one big room; some of them had sinks that you could kind of transform into a little kitchenette. I don't think they had balconies though, and that was the one thing I didn't care for. They were so enclosed and didn't have outside space, so you were always inside. I really liked it as far as the atmosphere. Everything was great, and there was nothing wrong with Lexington. The dining area was nice and very clean. It just felt like they were boxed in, but I would recommend it because some people don't care about that. They don't care about being outside or having a place to garden or sit in the balcony or anything like that. It seemed a great deal for the price that they quoted me, so I thought it was very nice. And everyone was very pleasant and very accommodating.

I was there at The Lexington, and they didn't have a spot open. I didn't really tour the place because I had already decided on where my dad is going, but the lady there that I spoke with who maybe is in charge of admission was the best. She was the best I talked to out of everyone. She was so helpful. That was a really nice thing. She really took a lot of time knowing that my dad probably wasn't even going to go there. She spent a lot of time talking me through the process, so that is always a huge thing. She made an appointment and let me come in and talk to her. I was there probably longer than most of the other places I looked at. I didn't see most of the facility. It was nice, but I just saw the lobby, and I didn't really look into any rooms, but the lady there was very nice and helpful. It was nice. It was well taken care of, and the premises were really nice. I just felt she was the best, and knowing that someone like that is there in a place helping my dad made me felt really good.

We placed dad into the assisted living at The Lexington. Dad LOVES the facility, staff and other residents. The caregivers and servers do a amazing job attending to his needs. The move-in process was seamless and we met with each department 24-48 hrs after move-in. I have and will continue to recommend this GREAT facility.

My mom is a current resident of The Lexington. Regarding the facility itself, I really like the idea that it has a pool in the center of it, so that made a huge difference in the sense of it feeling more like a resort living. They also have a couple of different patio areas. She has only been there since October 19th.

At that time of the transition, it was very stressful for the family, not just for my mom. However, they helped us and made the move easy. When we had trouble, like something mechanical, they had someone up there to help us. They just made the transition easy even if it was out of their norms. They went the extra mile. They're just wonderful! Everybody from the cook, the chef, the CNAs, etc., they were wonderful and have been helpful.

I ate there probably once or twice a week with my mom and I found the food to be very good. They have a very fresh salad bar and residents are given choices. If they don't like the two entrees that are on, they'll bring them a sandwich. If they're in the mood for a hotdog, they'll fix them one and they don't argue with them. If Mom wakes up and just feeling a little overwhelmed, she'll ask that a tray be brought to her room, and they'll go that extra mile and they'll take a tray up to her room. With regards to participating in any activities, since she is still making the adjustment, the answer would be more than not. However, she's gone to bingo and she's eating in the dining room. Also she joined the Halloween thing with all the kids.

Lexington was very, very nice. But I just didn't like the food. I only ate there once and it was Chinese food. The staff was wonderful. It's clean, but the rooms were smaller.
