I visited this facility
Lifestream seemed to be very clean and very neat. They have a main dining room where they serve three meals a day or you'd be able to fix small meals in your own apartment. Everybody seemed to be very helpful and very willing to help as best as they could. Unfortunately, we had some very difficult issues to deal with. My mom has had everything done in a certain particular way or this wasn't going to work, like she is a heavy smoker and there is no smoking allowed anywhere in the property and visitors were, of course, welcomed but they were restricted to certain time frames because the units were all in one main building and if it was at certain time in the evening, and I don't remember what it was but I am imagining after office hours during the week, then somebody would have to go in and unlock the doors and whoever it was you were visiting would have to come and meet you at the door. They had everything from Bingo and poker night to just basic social activities. The one thing that really would have turned my mom on was they actually had a Scrabble night every week. They did special parties and things like that for birthdays, and they had the bus station in Glendale that could take the more independent residents over to Walmart -- which is just two or three blocks away -- and over to Fry's. Their best bus would come to the station and pick them up and take them to do their shopping and everything, and then they return later to pick them up. It had some pretty stringent rules, so if you were someone who works throughout the week and only had your weekends available because of your work schedule or something like that, I could see that this could really make it problematic for family or friends to be able to come and visit; either the residents have to let them in themselves, or they have to get there when there is someone available in the office to open the doors. It is a very closed, locked-in facility.

I am a friend or relative of a resident
My mom seems to be very happy at LifeStream Complete Senior Living. The staff is very nice; they are exceptionally good. It's not like a retirement living place; it is nice. The dining area is very nice. They've got like a restaurant, basically, and the food is OK. They constantly have meetings with the chef, and they get to express their likes and dislikes, which is pretty cool. They have P.E where they play bowling and they have exercise, Bible studies or things like that, and there is entertainment. There are different areas of the facility that should be updated, and the one thing that I am concerned about is with my mom's apartment. She's got a studio apartment, which is perfect for her, but the carpet in the room has got a hump in it, like it needs to be stretched. We told them that, and they basically said there was nothing they could do. I am concerned because she could trip on it, and we have mentioned it, but they don't seem to think that they can do anything.
