Assisted Living Reviews for The Lodge at Natchez Trace

The Lodge has been a good experience for my mother-in-law. What makes her experience so positive is the caring of many employees. However the one person who really stands out both with his cooking creativity and his personality is DAVID. David puts his heart and soul into his job each and every very day...

My mother resided at the Lodge for one year. The staff to resident ratio is very low. The food was also excellent. I thought the staff was scrupulously honest in their dealings with me, and seemed to truly enjoy being with my mother.

We love The Lodge so much, that we have used them for 2 relatives now. My Mother-In-Law lived there in 2016 up until she passed away. And now my mother is living there. The food is EXCELLENT, thanks to David's leadership. The staff is incredibly caring and kind. Thank you all for taking such good care of Mom!

My dad has lived at The Lodge for almost 1 year. It has been a very positive experience. Caring staff, clean, well-run facility with a great director. Dad loves living here. The director, John, knows how to manage good talent and The Lodge is fortunate to have a chef with advanced degrees in culinary arts who comes from a background of fine dining. The FOOD is OUTSTANDING! Chef David has very high standards for food quality. Starting with top-notch, fresh ingredients, he cooks from scratch. The meals he and his staff turn out rival any high-end restaurant in the city. Hand-made crab cakes with house-made dill sauce, shrimp and grits, short ribs and pecan pie are just a few of his most requested dishes. The house-made salad dressings are delicious. Families of residents know about this 'secret' place for an amazing lunch. Not only are Chef David and the dining staff amazing in the kitchen, they genuinely care about the residents. After cooking, Chef David comes into the dining room and visits with the residents. You can tell they love him. Two thumbs up for awesome food and warm, loving atmosphere!

The Lodge at Natchez Terrace was a nice and a fairly new facility. I really don’t know much about it, but it didn't have a place to work out, although the staff who accommodated me was excellent.

Everything at the Lodge was spectacular. The holdback that I ran into is the fact that it's got two-stories and an elevator, and with my mother's dementia, that would make it too complicated. I saw them doing arts and crafts. I did not consume the food, but we went through the cafeteria and all the choices that they had, and it looked like it was very nicely done. But, like I said, first of all, I didn't like the two-stories because she was well-advanced in her dementia, and their hallways were more narrow. The Lodge was a beautiful place, and I thought their staff was excellent also. It was beautiful and well-maintained with a knowledgeable staff -- very nice place.

Provider Response

Hey Carl15, Thanks for the wonderful review. We are happy you liked our community. I did want to respond and clarify that our Memory Care is on the first floor only. Therefore mom would never have to use an elevator. The second is strictly for Assisted Living. Thanks again!

The Lodge at Natchez Trace is a very nice facility but they don’t have a computer room yet, and at this day and age they need one. The rooms are small and nice. We haven’t looked at very many, but it’s fairly nice. There were a couple of people in the library, but I didn’t observe any other activities.

Provider Response

Good morning Caring86304950. I want to invite you to come to The Lodge for lunch, a tour, and a visit. I think you will be very pleased with how we have progressed since 2014. We average over 80 residents, have a great staff of caring professionals, including an Activity Department that provides many meaningful activity experiences each day, 7 days a week. We still do not have a computer room (yet), but we have a vibrant community of wonderful residents and staff! Please come by and be our guest for lunch. -John Pugh, Executive Director, The Lodge at Natchez Trace

I visited this facility

The Lodge at Natchez Trace was a brand new place. It was absolutely beautiful. Everything looked beautiful because it was brand new, but it was just too far for us. The rooms were wonderful. A lot of rooms have balconies, which is fine, but that kind of worried me a little bit for my mother-in-law. Also there weren't full at all, so it is hard to rate until you see all the people in there and see what's going on. The staff was very friendly, but I didn't really see any activities or anything going on.

Provider Response

Good afternoon Lovely Lady 0000022. I am the Executive Director of The Lodge. Boy, we have come a long way since 2014! I would like to invite you to come out and have lunch with me, meet the team and take a tour with me. You will find our residents happy, our facilities beautiful, well appointed, and first rate. We take great pride in our facility and in the work we do. I would love you to see us now and see the difference between your visit of 2014 and now. I believe you will be pleased. Sincerely, John Pugh Executive Director

    About The Lodge at Natchez Trace

    The Lodge at Natchez Trace is a residential setting designed in the fashion of a country vacation home or cabin with the amenities of the old-time southern resorts. The goal of The Lodge is to create a plan that meets the unique needs for assistance with activities of daily living for each resident. Bathing, personal hygiene, dressing and toileting help are provided by the certified nursing assistants with dignity in the privacy of the resident's apartment. The resident is encouraged to do as much for themselves as they are capable, maintaining their abilities. Residents' safety is the top priority of The Lodge at Natchez Trace, and it has created a secure neighborhood for individuals with Alzheimer's Disease and other forms of memory loss. Staff, specially trained in understanding and meeting the needs of individuals with dementia, will create a plan to maximize the senior's independence while enhancing their safety. Unique activities programs will create a positive stimulating environment that fosters positive emotional experiences for all residents.

    What Makes Us Special

    Our 24-Hour Nursing Care is a unique feature of the Lodge at Natchez Trace that few assisted living communities offer. Our philosophy is better management of chronic illness will improve the health status of our residents and improve their functional independence. Having a nurse respond to and assess health emergencies improves communication with our resident’s physician resulting in a more timely and appropriate response resulting in better outcomes!
