Assisted Living Reviews for Holy Redeemer Lafayette

I visited this facility

The Lafayette was very nice. The arrangement that they had for passage from full capability to disability for dementia or some other kind of disability seemed to be a bit constricted. Overall, I thought it was very nice if you were in good health and could take advantage of all the activities there, but if not, it seemed you would be constricted to a separate area for people who had some level of disability. The staff was very nice and very friendly. There were some people with rooms that had a view of the park, but not all of the rooms had a view. Residents were nice enough to let people wander through their apartments. The food service was like a buffet after the tour, which had what seemed like good-quality food.

I moved my parents to Lafayette-Redeemer. The staff is very good. They're in independent living, so they basically have their own apartment, and they keep them very busy. There's plenty of activities right on their campus and a lot of times they don't have to leave their building, which is good because they're older and not driving. The food is decent, and my parents are very happy and comfortable and that's all that my siblings and I care about. The food is mediocre at best, but it's nutritious, and they like it and that's really the most important thing. It's a very decent place. It's not 5-star, but it's very comfortable and nice. The staff is incredible. It needs a little updating in certain places, but their apartment was completely renovated with a new kitchenette and my folks are very happy there. I don't have a bad word to say about the staff, and the residents there are all nice. The place is great. It's in a park-like setting, and it's very nice.

I am a past client of this provider

The Lafayette-Redeemer started as an assisted living facility. Then it changed to personal care and dropped all activities, so they weren't able to meet my dad's needs. It was fine as an assisted living facility. You could choose off a menu. There was a country club atmosphere at the dining area. They had white tablecloths and brought people in for entertainment. But they didn't make an effort to take the personal care patients down to see everything. So unless they made a special stop on my dad's floor, there wasn't much other than TV to get.

My mother lived here for around 5 years before she passed away. I enjoyed visiting her because it was clear to me that the facility was well-maintained and that the residents were well-cared for. I recall that they had movie events where they would show movies to the residents, as well as performers of many different kinds. My son was part of a local association of young magicians when he was younger and they performed at the home. I visited her room many times and the staff made sure that her living space was kept clean. There were rooms for the residents to meet each other, to talk, and to play games and piano if they wanted to. Every floor had its own garbage disposal chute and she was never in pain. When she needed medical assistance, she never had to wait and it was always of very high quality. The nurses genuinely did a good job whenever they were needed.
