I am/was a resident of this facility
We spent for 14 months at Lakehouse West. The stay was just fine, but the cost was difficult for us. We stayed in the independent living, the rooms were very fine, and I could only say positive things about it. However, you had to purchase the apartment you lived in, and you had a monthly fee there. The grounds were beautiful, and it was next to a lake. The staff was incredible.

My mom is currently at Lake House West in their independent living community. It’s a very beautiful place. My mother’s room has a beautiful view of the lake. The residents have to dress up a little bit to go down to their dining room. The food is excellent thanks to a fabulous chef. They have vehicles that take you shopping or to your doctors' appointment. They have a doctor that comes to the residents for less money. They have different activities, like art class, bingo, cocktail nights, concerts, and derby day. My mother participates on and off.

I’ve checked out Lakehouse West. Their assisted and independent-living are separate units so if you need to go from one to the other, you get up and move out. Their coordinator and intake person was very helpful, and she keeps in contact with me.
It’s a beautiful facility. When you move in, they update your apartment, but it’s a buy-in community starting upwards from $90,000 to $200,000 for a unit. You don’t have the ownership of the house. They belong to the corporation, so you have no tax advantages. You’re paying rent but even though there are administration and maintenance fees, you get nothing back. After a certain amount of time, you get a percentage back of your buy-in, but I’m not interested in that.
They have a pool, an exercise room, an activity room, and they have their clubhouse specials. They have once-a-week shopping trips. They always have something going on.

My visit to Lakehouse West was very good. The rooms, the staff, and the food were very good. There are some things that I expected them to have, but they didn't.
