I visited this facility
Lake Forest had a library, and they had a chapel room where you could meet for church. They had a little lake where you could be outside; that was one of the things that we really wanted. That one even had a place where you could have a garden space of your own.

I visited this facility
The staff at Lake Forest Good Samaritan Village was very nice and very accommodating. The affordable cottage was just too small and not in a good location inside the facility, but the facility's location in the city was OK. The staff was very nice and very helpful. It just didn't fit our needs. The dining room looked a little small. They had activities, but I didn't delve into that. It's old -- probably 40 years old or so -- and they're trying to bring it up-to-date. They had lovely twin homes and apartments.

My sister is settling into Good Samaritan Society (Lake Forest Good Samaritan Village), and she's doing fine. The people are wonderful, and the caretakers are just wonderful to her. She feels like it's home. She fell, so they won't let her have her braided rug anymore and she's unhappy about that, but it is for her own good because her problem is that she can't see. She has a one-bedroom apartment with a living room, a bath, and a kitchenette. It has a lot of closet space for one person. We took all her things to furnish her room, and she has all her important things with her. The food is good and they give her whatever she wants. If she wants a certain food, they will try and give it to her. The assisted living section has its own dining room. It is cozy and nice. Once in a while they have special activities, but I wish they had a little more activities. They have transportation for doctor's appointments. I think she's better there than someplace else, and she is happy there.
