Reviews of Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care in Lexington, Kentucky

I've been to Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care. It's like, eight rooms to one area, so basically, everything was on one floor. It was easy to access the kitchen area, easy to access the dining room area, and all the facilities. Everything was just in one area, so you wouldn't have to worry about taking an elevator or getting stairs, or traveling somewhere else to go to the activity area. Also, it was one aide to eight residents. It was clean and the upkeep was nice. The staff was very informative, and answered all the questions that I had.

I am at an assisted living facility called Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care. They furnish three meals. They have free transportation. Most people here are either with wheelchairs or walkers. The apartments are roomy. They are designed for wheelchairs. The doors have very large openings. Most of the people here stay in their apartments. They just come out to eat meals. The care is good, and the meals are good. I'm just paying for stuff I don't need. The showers here are large and you can put a wheelchair in the shower. If you're in a wheelchair or a walker, the rooms are really good and they take care of you, but when you're independent where you don't need any of that, it's just too much. I also need something to lower the cost. Other than that, I'm perfectly happy. The activities are very limited. They don't have that many activities because most of the people are in wheelchairs, so they have to have non-physical activities. I don't have any complaints about this facility at all. It's just I'm over-cared for, I think, and I need to cut the cost. And they check in every two to three hours, which is sort of a nuisance because I don't need anybody doing that. I take care of my own medication, so I don't need somebody to look after me every two or three hours. If you need it, I think it would be of value. I think for what you get, it's a pretty good price.

I loved Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care, but it was way above my brother's budget. If he had the budget, I would move him in there today. I liked the cottage-style setup that they had. It had 8 residents around a central living room and dining room. They had a special room if you wanted to have a family gathering. The decor was beautiful, and the staff was friendly, professional, courteous, and informative. They had an excellent schedule of activities for their residents. They gave me the food menu for the week and it looked excellent. And then if the resident didn't like the choice that they had, there were other things that they could get a la carte.

Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care is very friendly and open. My brother-in-law likes it there very much. His room is very nice and very much adequate. He is in the memory care and they do activities with them. Their price is a little on the high side, but considering the care that he's given, it's a good value for the money.

We went to Meadow Thorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care. The lady was very sweet and very thorough. It was a good tour. It was just not for my mom partly because of the menu and the fact that they ate at a specific time during the day. For example, breakfast is at 8, lunch is at noon, and dinner is at 5. My mom eating dinner at 5, that's just not going to work. The apartments were a generous size, so they had that going for them for sure. I think the number of the cottages has eight apartments. There were five cottages and there were eight apartments in each. In that regard, if you were looking for something a little more small and intimate, that might be nice, but it wasn't what we were looking for. The lady that did the tour was great. She was very nice and very helpful; we just didn't get a good feeling about the place. You bring your own furniture to the apartment. It has a refrigerator but no stove.

Meadowthorpe Assisted Living and Memory Care is about two and a half years old. It's new, and they have a cottage-style setup. It's very homey. They have 6 cottages and at least one of them is for Alzheimer's residents, while the others are for assisted living. Each cottage has 5 bedrooms/living areas with a bath and shower. The rooms were well-appointed. The bathroom is a good size. The shower was huge. It needs curtains because the water stays in the shower. They have 3 to 4 handlebars, so there's plenty of things to grab onto. You bring your own chair to sit down and wash. Then you can stand and rinse off. It's a complete walk-in shower. There's no stepover or anything. So, that made me feel safe. The kitchenette and the counters were all granite and very nicely done. They had these nice dark wood cabinets. They have one caregiver for each cottage, so there's a ratio of 8 to 1. They were very nice and very attentive to your questions and needs. They also provide everybody with one of those watches/necklaces to call for assistance. You just press the buttons. In each cottage, they have the common community area with a nice fireplace and seating. They have four tables for the eight residents. You have a kitchen area where you can heat up food in the microwave. There are coffee pots for you, and the refrigerator has free snacks and drinks. The idea was very well put together. You get a small number of neighbors in each cottage, but the cottages interact for big events/activities. They have another room for entertainment with a piano. There's even one of the cottages that had a bar setup. They have transportation on schedule for medical visits twice a month with no cost. If you have a third medical appointment, that's a $3 charge. They can do the grocery shopping for you, too. They pick up your orders and bring them to your room. The activities could have been improved. I thought they were over cautious with COVID because they haven't been out on outings, but they're going for the first time this month.

My aunt moved into the Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care. It's wonderful. It's very small and quaint, and they provide a lot of personal attention. It's very nice, it's very well kept, maintenance is well done, and there's no problem. With the COVID, it's kind of hard, but they do have plenty of things to do, and the activities director is very, very wonderful. The value is very good, and they're very willing to work with you. It's probably the best secret in Lexington.

My mom moved into Meadowthorpe Assisted Living & Memory Care. I thought it was excellent for the size of the apartment, for the type of amenities, for the staff to patient ratio, for the cost, and for the location. They have a full calendar of activities, but currently they are not able to provide them because of COVID-19.

My mother moved into Meadowthorpe Assisted Living eight weeks ago. It has been excellent. They do more than most assisted living places and the ratio is better. They have more activities throughout the day than any of the other places, too. There are five buildings that each house eight apartments. One building is all memory care and locked down. They have at least one employee in each building at all times. There is also a button in the room that the family can call if they need to talk with someone who calls the attendant. The meals are made in one place. The food is above average for sure. It is brought to each of the buildings from the main building where it is cooked in warming tray. The activities range from On-This-Day-History to yoga to regular exercising classes to making jewelry and to painting. There are four or five activities per day. They take each building out on an excursion once a month. They have been to the Southern Lights at the Horse Park, which is a Christmas light drive-through. They are very active. The staff members assist my mother with bathing. She had never allowed anyone to do that before, so they assist her bathing. The bathrooms are wonderfully equipped and very safe. Anytime I call, the staff members are always receptive. However, there is no security in each building. There is no passcode to come into each building, but there are cameras on everything.

Meadowthorpe Assisted Living was a brand-new facility. It didn't have as many amenities, but it's very nice, very clean, and the staff was very informative. The residents help prepare some of the meals and things, and it had more of a home-like atmosphere. They have a reading class and speakers who come in.

Meadowthorpe Assisted Living's rooms were lovely, but I didn't see any residents and any activities going on. I liked it because they had individual sections, in which they had a dining area and a kitchen area. The rooms were beautiful and I liked them. They had outside gardens and a patio with rocking chairs and benches. The place was really nice and I loved it. They have a breakfast bar and they have a lady there who will fix pancakes for you if you want them.
