Independent Living Reviews for Lighthouse Pointe

I didn't see anything I did not like at Lighthouse Pointe. I had signed up with them even that first day after the tour and then things took a real different turn pretty quickly. I loved everything about it, the location, the grounds were just gorgeous, the apartments were nice, and the balconies. I met some of the residents while I was there. My mother-in-law would be living there now if things hadn't changed. I thought it was wonderful. Some places although very nice had more of an industrial look and the Lighthouse Pointe looked very homey and I liked it. I think she would've loved living there. They had balconies out over the courtyard. Everything was just very nice. The staff was very nice. My mother-in-law couldn't be with me that day, so they sent food to her home. They gave me a meal for myself and her that I was able to bring home for her. We had dessert and the chef came out to find out what she liked and what I would like and customized the meal, I'm sure, based on what he had on the menu that day, but it was very nice.

Lighthouse Pointe is in a nice location, and it was mostly quiet. The person that gave the tour was OK. We had an appointment, but I think the person that I was supposed to meet was not there for whatever reason. The person I met might not have been assigned to me because she acted a little flustered. I was a little frustrated with that because I made the appointment a week ago. I think they're a little shortsighted to not have at least one wheelchair to roll a person around or even a stroller. I know it's not their job to provide the equipment, but it just seemed kind of shortsighted if you're trying to sell these places. Someone could come in and need that stuff. They didn't have it, so it was a turn-off.

Lighthouse Pointe was a good facility. They offered a lot of things with the members, a lot of activities, and outings. The staff took us around and showed us multiple rooms for options, the activity rooms, and the schedule of events. Everything was really consolidated. You can get to everything with no issues. There is a lot of space. It's kind of spaced out, so there's a lot of moving room.

Lighthouse Pointe is a beautiful place. They come across as being very organized, very friendly, very clean, and they encourage a good variety of social activities. They offer a good amount of security and safety, they have pull lines in the bathrooms, and the rooms are of a pretty good size, too. They also have studios, one-bedrooms and two-bedrooms. They are located off of Great Bridge Boulevard, so there is not as much traffic as there used to be. They are way back up the actual street itself and kind of sit in a cul-de-sac with a really nice wooded area, so it is a really nice, secure environment. I was with a particular women's organization, and we used to always meet in their activity room. We got to talking with some of the staff, and they gave me a tour. As a matter of fact, I just spoke with them not too long ago, and they were encouraging me to come out and take another tour. They used to bring us nice little snacks for our meeting, which was very sweet of them, and everything I had there was very good. The staff members were very friendly, very patient, and very kind.

The staff members have always been very courteous,, understanding and helpful. They are always polite and respectful regarding the difficulties my mother endures due to her age. I appreciate their thoughtfulness.

I liked Lighthouse Pointe. liked the size of the apartments, but I didn’t like that it included three meals. I don’t think you should include three meals in your rent. The tour was good, they have field trips, and there's a Walmart that they can take us to. The person who showed us around was good.

Lighthouse Pointe was very nice and well kept. The people were wonderful. I spoke with some of the residents who seemed very happy there and with the food. The disadvantage to that is that if my mother needed help later, it's not something that they offer. We would have to move her from there, but it was affordable, and that probably would have been our first choice.

Lighthouse Pointe's staff was very pushy. I felt very rushed and wouldn't recommend it to anybody. They didn't have any apartments to show. The food was good, but the reading, relaxation and exercise areas were not comparable. They had an EMT on call and tried to maintain the facility to make it comfortable.

Lighthouse Pointe was nice and well maintained. We were escorted by a management-type person who was very friendly and informative. There weren't any activities going on at the time. The dining area was very bright and cheerful. We did not taste the food, but they seemed to have a good menu.

Lighthouse is a clean, well-organized, and really nice place. They have therapists and people to support you. The price was reasonable, and the staff was outstanding. My father had a little studio apartment with a bedroom, living area, bathroom, and kitchen. He is really pleased with the food and activities for the seniors.

We are very happy with my father being at Lighthouse Pointe. It’s beautifully decorated and has a gorgeous dining area. They have a library, a game room with pool tables, and a bus that takes the residents to the local malls and doctors' appointments if their family can’t do so. We are very happy, but they are not assisted living and don’t have medical services when he gets to a point where he might need help with his meds or other things.

Lighthouse Pointe was very nice, and I was impressed. The staff was very courteous, and professional. I saw a community room, the 1- and 2-bedroom units, and the library. Everything I saw was very well-kept, but I did not see a swimming pool. The apartments were spacious. One thing I didn't like is you cannot cook your own food in the apartment because all the meals are provided, and included in the cost. The dining area was very neat. It smelled good, but I did not taste the food.

My grandmother lives at the Lighthouse Pointe, a great independent living facility that does not offer much assisted living. They provide a lot of activities for the residents. The food is amazing, which is the highlight of the community. They keep it all well updated and have a lot of live musicians come in for mini concerts. It’s a very lovely community and very affordable, but the only downside is that they only have one elevator and it has three floors.

I visited Lighthouse Pointe for my dad. It was a wonderful location, but it will not work for him because he needs more care than they can provide. The staff was very friendly and very professional. The room was clean, nice, and had new furnishings. The atmosphere was awesome, but it won’t work for my dad.

Lighthouse Pointe was beautiful. If I were 20 years older, I would have no problem going in because the average age was 80. I loved the place. I had a tour. The dining room was humongous. It was out in the open and not closed in. Anybody could sit at the table; it was not restricted, and it was pretty cool. They had activities, and they also had the holidays. They were the ones that said you could stay in one of their properties for vacation, which I thought was very cool. The rooms were in nice sizes. I was looking at the two-bedroom, and I thought it was a good size bedroom. The staff was very friendly. They knew everybody's name, which was always a plus. They answer all the questions, if you had questions for them.

A friend lived in Lighthouse Pointe, and it was a very upscale retirement community. It was lovely, but expensive. It's full service -- three meals a day, dining room service, all kinds of activities, and housekeeping. The staff were very friendly, very professional, and very helpful.

My visit to Lighthouse Pointe was great. The staff was friendly. I even have an extended friendship with one of the ladies that took us around. She was just sweet, and we kind of bonded. The place was very ornate, very open, and I loved it. I loved the elevators and the arena type setup where you can see downstairs from the balcony. The food was wonderful, and the service was great. While we were there, someone started playing the piano, a lot of the seniors started singing, and it was a very friendly atmosphere. They were active seniors. We walked into a chair aerobics class that was going on. It was very relaxed, and it was a very beautiful facility. I did like it, but it is totally out of our price range.

Lighthouse was pretty good. The location and the staff were both very good. The residents were also nice to me, and when I left, everybody was saying: "I hope to see you back." I felt good about the way they treated me. The dining room was clean. They had activities.

I'm staying at Lighthouse Pointe for almost a year now. It's a little bit more than what I want and what I'm accustomed to, but it's really a very nice place. We have a dining room where we have our meals and these are all prepared by the facility. The food is good, it's not my home cooking but it's good. They have many programs and activities scheduled and majority of the residents here are very content, pleased and happy.
