I kind of came upon this one by accident. A friend of mine -- I don’t know if he saw an advertisement or something -- went to look at a place that was CCRC, and I hadn't been to one like that before. It seemed fine. They have garden cottages, villas, apartments, and a healthcare center all in the same complex but not under one roof. They call it Lakeview Terrace. It is near Mount Dora in Florida. You can lease one of the housing units or go in and pay the endowment for the healthcare. They have a very nice healthcare center that will take you to hospice if you need to or if you have to go into that at some point. They have a nice lake and a walking path all the way around. They have a lot of activities going on. They have a recreation center where the main dining room is, and the healthcare center has a beautiful dining room. They have independent living, and they want to keep you in that situation as long as you can. And if you get a cold or a sore throat or have to be in the healthcare center temporarily, it was fine, and there are stages to the kind of accommodations that they have there. Everybody seemed happy. The help were very happy, and they have been working there for a long time. In the healthcare center, most of the nurses were registered nurses.

Lakeview Terrace had wide open spaces, and they had a dog park. It was a very nice modern building, so it was an expensive place. The older cottages were redone, and they had several new buildings. The staff was very good. We had lunch there, and the food was very good. They had a swimming pool, a workout gym, and a 9-hole golf course up on a hill.

I went to Countryside at Lakeview Terrace for a real estate seminar, and it was very helpful. They had realtors that will work with you and help you. The individual counselor was also very helpful in narrowing down what I would like and explaining the financial aspects of it. They were located in a rural area, and the residences were built around two lakes and a golf course. They varied from cottages to villas to apartments. They had about 36 different floor plans, and I'm interested in a one-bedroom with a den. They helped me choose one of those. They had a large community building which included a swimming pool, a dining room, meeting rooms, a library, and big rooms for big meetings or entertainment. They have card groups, choral group, and several different activities that you can participate in. They have independent living, assisted living, memory care, and nursing home if you need it. They also provide transportation to shopping, doctor's appointments or trips, and housekeeping for the apartments every week. They are well staffed. It is a not-for-profit organization and recognizes my long-term care insurance, and the cost of their apartments is less.

Lakeview Terrace was nice. There was a small lake there and lots of trees, and it was just a nice country setting. They had a swimming pool and exercises, and they had a gym type place. They had quite a few activities. The staff we've met were very nice. It was a little better, but not a whole lot better.

We visited Lakeview Terrace. Their food was not very good at all. When we got there, the staff increased the price of the cottage $1000 more, so I wasn't happy with that. She told me on the phone that it was $3000 a month, and when we got up there, she said that it was $4000. We can't afford that. We did see a cottage on the lake, and it was very nice. Security was good as well; it was gated.

At Lakeview Terrace, the living conditions were so much better. You could get one or two bedrooms. You could get a bedroom with a den, which is what we were interested in. It had granite countertops and a full kitchen. It had washer and dryer. Lakeview Terrace was more of a luxury-type of community. It was a much nicer overall community. The place was very clean and very well maintained. It was a spread-out community too. It wasn't just high-rise. Aside from apartments, they also had villas. The staff there was pretty good. They provided housekeeping and one meal a day.

I was disappointed with Lakeview Terrace when I visited there. Even though the staff were nice, it had a lot of negatives. What they had were little villas and with that you need to primarily go out to get to their main dining room or to other rooms in the facility. When the weather is bad, they have a golf cart to pick you up and take you over to the dining room and I think that was totally unacceptable. It is such a hassle.

Lakeview Terrace is a little bit far away and too expensive, I couldn't afford that. The community was very lovely and they were very nice. It looked like a beautiful place to live and the amenities were very nice. They had everything you wanted and need. The lady that showed us around was very nice, we enjoyed our trip there.

Lakeview is fine, its continuing care but we're still in independent living. We've been here for six years and had at least three-surprise visits from the state and at that time they got five stars in every category. The people working here and the care are really good.
