Visitor381521: "Lakeshore Living was a very old place and kind of rundown. When I first got there when I was walking to the building, the owner came out, and he had been doing manual labor; he was sweaty and not ready really for visitors. He actually kind of forgot that I had an appointment and was coming. That being said, he was very nice. He did go ahead and oblige me with the tour, but they had lost their license. They actually weren’t licensed at the moment, and there were no residents ... (read more)

SY704600: "Stone Ledge Manor has a bus to take clients to appointments. It's not as fancy as where my sister is moving from, but it still had the amenities that she's accustomed to. She'll have a living room, a bedroom, and a bath that will be hers, and they'll also have somebody that will give her medicine handed to her all day long instead of giving her a box of medicines to be sure that they're taking it at the appropriate time. There will also be people who will go in and check on ... (read more)

Visitor9222: "The rooms at Brookdale Brandon were nice. When we went in to see them, the lady that showed us around and everyone else was nice. But she said that, "This room needs to be painted, and you'll have to paint it." For the prices we pay, I don't feel that we have to paint it; it just needs some updating. I don't expect anything perfect, but I expect it clean, and I expect it to be nice. The room also needed cleaning up. Maybe they didn't get to it yet, but it was kind of a turno... (read more)

Atria Lutz

414 Chapman Road East, Lutz, FL
$$$$
11 reviews
Roger: "Atria Lutz was a fairly nice place. It's nice looking and some of the rooms were pretty good. One was a suite and it was like one room with a bathroom and a little kitchen area, and you put a bed and a TV or a dresser in there. They also have some one-bedrooms and they were pretty clean, but they just showed us the model. They have arts and crafts, and they have a cafeteria."

Beverly: "My friend was at Patty's House #4. It's a very accommodating, nice, clean home. The staff was very good. They called and said that she was not breathing well so we had to take her to the hospital. They're excellent and took very good care of her. We talked to Patty and her daughter before my friend went there, and they were extremely helpful with trying to get her placed. They were top rate. We were very impressed."
