I visited American House. I liked the staff. It was very clean with lots of activities. They were doing sort of exercise when I was there. I saw the dining room. It was clean. It had good variety of food. I would recommend them to others.

We chose American House Lakeside for my mom, and she will be moving in the place soon. The staff was very friendly, and the place was incredibly clean. We were very impressed. We have been treated very well. They are helping us to make it a smooth transition for my mom because it was a hard thing. Overall, we were very pleased.

Provider Response

It’s our pleasure to offer an enriching community where she’ll feel safe and comfortable. If you ever need anything my door is always open.

My grandma used to live in American House. It was great. We loved it. The rooms were very nice. I would not mind living there. They had a lot of activities, and my grandma did a lot there. They had bingo and shopping, and they had daily activities. I would recommend them because I felt my grandma was well cared for every time we went to visit. She was happy there.

Provider Response

If there is anything else we can do for you at all, please call me at (586) 263-0081. Aubrey Brohl, Executive Director

American House was nice, clean, and affordable. The apartments were nice -- 1-bedroom and real nice brown carpet, perfect size for a single person. It has a nice kitchen and cabinets; I was impressed. The staff was nice, and the dining setup was nice too. Security is basic, and it feels secured. They have bingo, exercise, movie nights, cards, and horse races.

Provider Response

Thank you for leaving your feedback! We're glad you enjoyed the American House Lakeside community! If there's any other information or assistance we can provide you with, please don't hesitate to contact me! Aubrey Brohl, Executive Director (586) 263-0081

My relative lived at American House for a short time. It was clean and the staff is friendly. They have many events and activities. However, my relative did not care for it there. There were cliques and the other residents were not very welcoming if you were new. There was always a wait for the elevator and she did not like the food at all. She said that the food was bland and mushy. Breakfast was ok, but supper and dinner were not. We noticed a lot of prepared food in cans (think big cans from GFS). This is not a place to go if you need any form of memory care assistance. When visiting, you will often notice residents asleep in their wheelchairs in main area of the buildings. Ironically, we received a call from American House that said that they understood that we were looking for a place for our loved one three months after she moved out of American House.

Provider Response

Our nutritionist and executive chef always welcome suggestions for healthy menu options, and they work hard at creating and preparing delicious meals. In addition, we do have options at some of our other American House communities that have dedicated memory care. I'd be happy to discuss these options with you!

American House seemed homier, caring, and more comfortable than the others we’ve seen. The staff is very friendly. The apartment was nice -- very well setup -- and I think mother is going to be very happy there. The dining hall was very clean and very nice.

Provider Response

How exciting that your mother is joining our community!

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review. If you or your mother ever need anything, don’t hesitate to contact me personally!

The American House Lakeside was nice, and the rooms seemed spacious. The lady who took us on a tour gave us a lot of information and resources which I thought was valuable. The residents were communicating with us as well, but the staff was not accommodating at the time of our visit.

Provider Response

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are sorry you did not find the staff accommodating at the time of your visit. We love visitors and we love showing off our lovely community. Please give me a call; I'd be happy to arrange another tour.

American House Lakeside was very nice. It was very good. Everything was attractive and very well laid out. They had pretty much anything you would want in terms of activities. The staff was very nice and very accommodating. We looked at their one-bedroom unit that has a little kitchenette.

Provider Response

Thank you for the kind feedback! We work hard to keep our community clean and feeling like home. I’m glad you noticed the plethora of activities we have! Our Life Enrichment Director works hard at creating a busy calendar for our residents to enjoy – and we have fun with them! If I can ever be of any assistance to you, my door is always open (or you can call me up personally with any questions).

The facility was not only very clean, but the staff was great. I could tell that the staff loved their jobs, which made the residents happy and feel welcome all at the same time. Especially during the Holiday Season, it can be hard for the residents to be without their family or loved ones, but American House made sure that there are things for the residents to do to keep them occupied and happy! The amenities were great as well, and provided privacy for the residents, while at the same time, always making sure that the residents were being taken care of. It was clear that the facility was well taken care of and updated on a regular basis. All of the residents there seemed like they enjoyed the space. I also noticed that American House provided lots of activities for the residents, so that they always have something to do.

Provider Response

Thanks for your comments michigan530! Having a personal space and privacy is important to everyone, so we like to provide our residents with their own domain, but also let them know that they're a part of the community too. We strive to take great care of our residents and offer tons of holiday activities to keep everyone in the spirit. Enjoy your holiday season, and feel free to stop in and say hello next time you're visiting!

Thank you, Laura Broecker, Executive Director (586) 263-0081

My mother could no longer manage her own home, but she is still fairly independent and even does her own laundry. American House offers independent living where each of the resident has their own apartment. They receive meals down in the dining room three times a day. If their needs increase, they can hire additional services. They have a bus that takes them out to Meijer's once a week, so she can pick up what stuff she needs. It's also close to my home, so I can get over there a lot. She's in a 2-bedroom apartment with handicapped equipped bathroom, and all the hallways are wide. They can socialize and there's always a group in the lobby just talking or another group that's watching TV. They had a family Halloween party. All the families were invited to come over for dinner. They had entertainment. A guy played a guitar with old music that they would recognize, and he took turns dancing with all the ladies. Everybody had a great time, it was wonderful. The food is supposed to be all homemade, and they welcome family members to come and eat there if they want to. If the residents don't happen to like the two specials for the day, they can always order off a regular menu. They staff is very accommodating and they know everybody. They will call me immediately about any concern. I have no problems at all and I would recommend them. We're really happy with our choice. They have pet therapy comes in, nursing students from the local school comes in and check blood pressure once a week, and there's a visiting physician every Wednesday. They take a couple of nice trips every month. They keep them active and interested in things.

Provider Response

Wow, you sure have touched on so many of the highlights we're proud to offer residents! Thank you, Marge2, for your wonderful review and your recommendation - it means so much to us. We always try to have new and fun things for our residents to do, and we're thrilled that your mother is happy, and that you're happy spending time here with her. Do stop in and say hi and let us know if you need anything!

American House Lakeside is a nice, quiet assisted living home. I found my visit here to be pleasant. I was taken by how silent it was around the facilities. There were some usual loud clattering, but for the most part, I must have shown up on a banal day. The place is clean, the furniture and the interior of the two apartments I saw were very well taken care of. The place looks like an old apartment building, not super old, just renovated. The staff seemed polite and hard working. I got the vibe that the residents were in good hands and take care of. I ate lunch with a few residents who said they didn't mind living there, though I could tell they wished they were still living on their own somewhere. I did eat the food that the home served, it wasn't too bad. It tasted like regular cafeteria food and my day went well. No problems. I helped serve the food and clean some of the outdoor areas, pick weeds etc. I visited as a community service volunteer.

Provider Response

Thank you, kshamrock20, for taking the time to be a community service volunteer and stopping by our American House Lakeside location! It is especially nice of you to notice how polite and hard-working all of our staff members are. They really do care about our residents, and about keeping the residence clean and nice-looking. Although some residents wish they were still living on their own, we find they are indeed happy living at American House with all the amenities we offer. Thank you for your review!

My family moved my Mom in to American House Lakeside last week and I simply cannot explain how pleased we are. There is medical staff on site 24/7 and caring, kind, gentle staff of all kinds visible in the building 'round the clock. Even the kids who serve residents their meals in the dining room are not only sweet, but thoughtful and considerate as well. Mom has been there five days and nearly every staff member in the building knows her name already. A member of the office staff stopped me last night on my way out to let me know that they've noticed that Mom hasn't been eating well. Really? With this many needy residents you noticed something that individual? Awesome! The first evening she was there, the community director, site manager, and heads of the recreation, housekeeping, and culinary departments came to welcome her with a pillow and homemade apple pie (Mom's favorite!) The medical staff is attentive and concerned with individualized care. While it takes a bit to get everyone on the same program, they are flexible and considerate of residents' needs. The food is excellent with a great selection of entrees at both the noon and five o'clock meals. Breakfast is continental and also includes a hot selection and the dining room itself is welcoming and bright. The community has just put a great deal of money in renovations and the new furniture and expected hallway lighting will be wonderful. I am so relieved that we've chosen American House for Mom. I feel confident that Mom's adjustment will be smoother here than at most of the other communites we checked out prior to our decision. I encourage anyone struggling with this tough decision to call and make an appointment with Aubrey B. You won't be sorry you did!

Provider Response

Thank you for recognizing us with these kind words Laura. We understand the many rewards and challenges of transitioning to a new home and we're grateful to you and your Mom for trusting us to help. We love what we do and it's nice to hear that it shows! We look forward to seeing you soon. Sincerely, Aubrey Brohl, Assistant Director

Mom is on the waiting list to get into the American Lakeside. Their staff is very accommodating, very friendly, very informative, and they were open to my schedule. They're extremely helpful, too. The rooms seemed very nice. They're not only large, but well-kept, and everything is clean. The residents who walk around seem happy. They were having some kind of event in their common area. I talked to some of the residents there, and they said they're very satisfied living there. They have volunteer groups who come in and be with the residents for some games and activities. They have Wii bowling league, a gym, low impact aerobics and exercises, a chapel on site, and a salon. And they explained to us upfront there will be extra. They told us exactly what the normal charges were and what the charges covered and what things were not covered. They also told us about financial programs. The staff was very forthcoming with information and were very friendly. Actually, what really impressed me the most was the reaction of the people who were living there.

Provider Response

I’m excited to have your mom come to live in our community! And you’re right – we do have quite the expanse of activities and our residents definitely enjoy themselves here. I’m glad you mentioned the financial programs because others may not realize we do offer options – and that our services are provided on an a la carte basis, so residents only pay for what they actually need. Thank you for leaving your feedback! If you ever need anything, don’t hesitate to call me.

American House Senior Living was very clean. The staff was very friendly. I liked their security. They had medical staff for when there are things that need to be addressed. The rooms were very clean, up to date, pleasant, and roomy. The food was excellent with lots of variety. They had lots of activities which were age appropriate. They had bingo, musicals, radio day shows, and things from their past. They also had outings.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your detailed review, Susan! We're very proud to be able to offer so many activities and outings for our residents, and I'll tell our chefs that you enjoyed the food. If I can be of any assistance to you, please call me directly. Thanks again!
