My mother was in this facility in October of 2007 and unfortunately this is where she died. It is NOT a nice place, the staff is extremely unfriendly and uncooperative. When I checked her in, I gave them a printed list of ALL the family contact names and phone numbers, it was literally a page long as I am 1 of 8 children. When the day came that my mom was taken to the hospital, where she passed later that day, I NEVER received a phone call from Lakeview. The call I received was from the doctor at the hospital telling me the status of my mother's condition. When I turned on my cell phone before leaving for the hospital, only then did I get the messages from Lakeview. Even that was infuriating, there were 2 messages, 1 said she was being taken to St. Joe's in Wayne and the next said she was being taken to Chilton Memorial. I was Infuriated that they only called my cell, at 2:00 in the morning by the way, and NEVER BOTHERED to call any other number on the list I provided upon check in. Do yourself and your loved ones a favor, FIND SOMEPLACE ELSE to take them, this is NOT the place you want them to spend their last days in!!!!!
Don't be fooled by the smiles you get when first visiting the facility. What appears to be a friendly atmosphere is really an institution that when visitors leave all hell breaks loose and the patient s care declines. B set to try other places as this is not the place for your loved one. Good luck and know that much research is needed before selecting a place as it is easy to fall prey to this place.
