I am a friend or relative of resident

My father was a resident at the Lakeshore for over seven years. From his third story apartment, he could see north up the lake to Bellevue. He loved his view. He also loved his pea patch garden. He went on many of the bus trips with his friends to outside lunches, scenic trips, the casino, or to an old five and dime store. Evening dinner was very special. He and his friends had their own table for eight. The Lakeshore is a beautiful complex, located on the southern tip of Lake Washington. Being on the end of the runway at Renton field, there is always activity going on to watch. The Lakeshore also has many activities for their residents. My dad even belonged to a Wii bowling league and attended mass on Sunday afternoons in the rec. room. The staff is professional and caring. The dining room is beautiful and the food and service is as if you were in a nice restaurant. I ate there regularly and we hosted several family functions in their private dining room. It is a great place to live.

My parents have been residents of The Lakeshore a little over a year now. The 24 hr nursing staff along with a very warm professional atmosphere, made the move to The Lakeshore a little bit easier for my parents and siblings. Upon entering the front doors, you are warmly greeted by a staff member and many residents socializing or just hanging out. Residents dine overlooking beautiful Lake Washington tended by a warm, professional staff, and a healthy tasty menu. There are many events and outings scheduled every week, month...there is something for everyone. The facility inside and out is always beautifully maintained and the residents are in a safe environment. Thank-you for caring!

I am/was a resident of this facility

The Lakeshore is wonderful. It’s very homey, very nice and I have a small but comfortable room. I’m still getting oriented to the place and I do my thing around here. Cleanliness is light housekeeping once a week and they make the bed. They have bingo and Wii bowling activities. Food is boring because there’s a lot of chicken. I hope they add steak to the menu. The staff is wonderful, caring and appreciative.
