Do not stop, do not go in, do not be lulled into staying. Our loved one went from rehab to nursing care at VL. He was put into a hospice program. He did not need it. The hospice doctor and/or nurse would come and spend four minutes and overprescribe medications (that he was taken off after leaving). The staff would not respond to buzzers and were more interested in tucking people into bed than dealing with any situations (such as checking for rashes). The facility lost brand new clothes, they marked clothes that they were never given permission to mark, etc. The food was terrible - the coffee was colored water, the meats were gummy, and the savories were never savory. We pulled our loved one out of VL and he immediately improved - no drugs, no pads, no wheelchair, etc. They only want your money - run from this establishment. PS - I was at the facility every day for two and one half months - I was not a weekend hour visitor.

I visited this facility

The Village at Victory Lakes was clean. Things weren’t chaotic or anything. They had a good program, and they had a daily menu of services. If you got worse or something, then you’ll have more assisted-living, and things like that. What I didn’t like about it was the fact that you would have to buy-in. Say, if I wanted a studio; I will have to pay $141,000 or whatever it was. I’d get 90-percent back, but still there’s that buy-in along with the monthly fee. There are recreational facilities, exercise facilities, and group activities like trips. They have a bus to get off the grounds, churches, doctors, and things like that.

I visited this facility

We visited The Village. It’s in the county that I live in. The decorating is very tasteful. It’s very lovely, but my only problem with it is as far as my husband and me, it’s not suitable in that it has a bar or they call the pub in the middle of the place. That wouldn’t bother most people, but it bothers us. The staff seemed very competent. They drive the people in a bus, and they come to community concerts. It’s run by some Dominican nuns and I’ve recommended this to my friends who happen to be Catholic.

My mother over the years has enjoyed living here at Victory Lakes, but not anymore. Some of the staff are wonderful, others are questionable. This year while my mother was away from her apartment (Independent living) someone accessed her place and was looking into her personnel property without permission. I noticed this myself since I was there prior to this incident and everything was fine. I find it questionable that people have keys to enter a resident's home without their permission. This facility is beautiful inside and out and the dining hall staff and the wellness center people are wonderful to her. The food is not as good as it use to be - its just OK. As far as the Amenities in the building, they are pretty good compared to other retirement places. In the past when my parents were looking into a facility to retire, the most important thing to them was their safety, medical needs near by, and a relaxed environment. At that time this facility met those requirements. At this time, it does not!
