Assisted Living Reviews for Grand Villa of Lakeland

My father went to Grand Villa of Lakeland. His room was very nice and was just right for what he needed. It was clean and the people working there were happy people who liked their jobs. They had an exercise program, food program, doctors, dermatologist, and foot doctor on-site. They sent out a calendar to me so I could see what was happening every day. They had a lot of activities planned. I was very happy with the care that he received there. He passed away after a month, but he recieved good care while he was there. They had a menu, and you could get a full portion or smaller portions depending on what you wanted, like soup, salad, and dessert. Everybody sat at individual tables of four with tablecloths. They had an exercise room where they did exercises together with someone up front leading them, and they also walked the halls. One day, they had a couple of dogs that got married, so they had a big ceremony and everybody was excited taking pictures and following the bride and groom dogs down the hall. They had a snowball fight with cotton balls, bingo, and all kinds of activities for the people living there. The staff was very caring, very nice, and helpful people. It was very clean and didn't smell. It's expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Grand Villa of Lakeland was very small, which I liked. Everyone seemed friendly, and the room was a nice size. The price was reasonable, and they offered all the services included in the price that they quoted for her staying there. They had memory care. The staff was very nice and took them to different places in the community.

Grand Villa of Lakeland is very nice, and I'm happy and satisfied at this point. It's very clean, and my wife is well taken care of. She doesn't have complaints with the food, but she has to eat at meal time and snack time. She can't just go get whatever she wants whenever she wants it, and that took her a little while to get used to, but she's adjusted. They have an activity therapist that’s assigned to memory care who also works with assisted living. I am very impressed with her because she's well trained, gets to know all the patients personally, and knows what she's doing. The nurses help out a lot in the activities. They have a director of memory care who also handles some activities as well as a person who comes in on weekends to provide some activities for memory care. I am really happy with the staff; they’re really a strong point. They have quite a few housekeepers as well who work as a team to do what needs to get done. The only minor criticism I have was that administratively, no one explained what was in the patient's manual for families, so there were some things that I found out by experience, such as the laundry and visiting doctors.

My dad has been in Grand Villa for a while now. It's one level with 64 units, and he is getting extremely good care for less money. He has a really nice, remodeled single room with a bathroom. They come and get him for breakfast or dinner. They supply all the bathroom soap. They have levels A, B and C and have an in-house medical doctor. The food is not bad, and they read the menus to them or whatever he needs. They are really attentive. They have little parties for everybody.

Grand Villa of Lakeland had remodeled an older building, so it's not a particularly fancy place but everything was new, fresh, and well appointed overall. The exteriors are not something you'd pull up and say, "This looks great," but it's well maintained. They just put in new landscaping and paint. Overall, I was very pleased. Inside was nice and comfortable. They had a grand opening with a special offer, and value-wise, it looked like the best for meeting the needs for my wife. Her care was excellent. I didn't have any problems whatsoever. The surroundings and exteriors were the only negative. They had a dining area and the other half of it was a room for activities and exercises. They had a big living room or social area with a TV where the patients congregated. One of the nice things is that they had a bus for folks to do field trips, which is an important factor.

We did go and look at Grand Villa of Lakeland for my mother-in-law. It was wonderful. It was a wonderful place. It was OK, but it was not as nice as the other one we looked at, and it was actually more expensive. It wasn’t like an apartment. They had basically taken the rooms from when it was a nursing home, remodeled them, and put in small sinks and refrigerators. It was OK. Actually my aunt is there, and as far as she is concerned, there’s nothing wrong with it. It’s very nice, but for my mother-in-law, she needed something that was a little less like a nursing home. The staff was wonderful. The price was higher than the other place we looked at.

Provider Response

Thanks for taking the time to tour our newly renovated community. We are excited to offer spacious private and companion apartments that have new flooring both carpet and vinyl along with multi-functional kitchenettes. Both of our courtyards have been completely redone with a fountain in our memory care unit, planters for a garden, and several sitting areas for our residents to socialize and enjoy the outside weather. We just held our Grand Opening/Ribbon cutting on Oct 19th which was shortly after your tour. We would love for you to come back out and see the completed renovation. Again thank you for your review we are always grateful to receive feedback from anyone visiting our community!

I visited Brookdale in Lakeland. It was fine. They told me what their facility does and everything. The visit was good. They offered assisted living, and the place that I was looking for was for dementia. I needed a facility that handled that. Everything that you would need was there, I guess.

We're going to put my sister at Brookdale Lakeland Hills (Formerly Emeritus at Lakeland). Everything seemed great. We paid attention to the residents, and they seemed happy and well taken care of. They're going to remodel, so the place is going to look even better. We liked the way that the doctor is making regular visits, and they have a podiatrist that comes around as well as the regular things like having their haircut. The price was definitely right for us. It fit the budget that we had. It was the best place so far.

Emeritus at Lakeland was very nice. It was clean. The lobby was gorgeous. The furniture in there was something else. The facility is right on the main road and that main road is the same road that goes past the hospital and lots of clinics. What I like best about this one is the overall appearance and the people. They were very nice. Also, they had parking facilities for the people living there. Location was good too except that it was on that busy road, but it was very close to medical facilities, which I always think is a good idea.
