Hear From Residents and Family of Cedar Lake Assisted Living & Memory Care!

The staff seems well trained, caring and work exceptionally well as a team. The property is well maintained and bright and 'cheery' in decor. Cedar Lake has my well earned trust in caring for my stepdad.

My mother-in-law spent about a year and a half in this facility, before she had to move on to a different community for memory care. Of the communities that we visited and used, this was my favorite. It has a small, close-knit feel between the residents and staff. The staff are very kind, patient, and helpful to the residents. They have a wonderful movie, reading, and exercise room, and do a great job scheduling activities. We did have a few communication issues where the administration did not give us much warning that she was in need of memory care -- we felt rather rushed and scrambled trying to find her another place.Overall though, I would highly recommend the assisted living.

Cedar Lake surpassed our expectations. The facility was clean, well maintained, and residents look happy and healthy. Kelly took the time to answer all of our questions and concerns. She was very personable and informative.

I want to send out a big thank you to the staff at Cedar Lake. So very compassionate and are taking good care of my mom, Josephine Basquel. They have gone beyond to make sure she is comfortable and happy.A special shout out to Wendy and Elizabeth at the front desk who have made sure my mom’s Xmas gifts were brought to her room and the batteries needed were in place and that she knew who they were from.I can’t tell you how much you all have lifted my spirits during this COVID pandemic when I’m not able to go home and visit her.Gratefully,Judy McCosky

We checked out many places for my Mom, and Cedar Lake stood out from all the rest. Mom moved in last month and she loves living there. The staff are all very nice people and genuinely seem to care about my mom. She now has people to help her with anything that she needs, and she still has all her own furniture in her own apartment. Our family is glad to have found a great place for her.

My Mom is 94 and has been recently diagnosed with Dementia. She can still function well, but needs alot of Cueing. We chose Cedar Lake because of the Residence Club program that seems to be a combination of Assisted Living and Memory Care. Mom moved in 2 weeks ago and has adjusted very well. The Staff is exceptional. Each and everyone we have met that works there, is well trained and very Caring. They havea wonderful daily program of activities to keep Mom active and socializing. The facilities are immaculate and the food is quite good. There were no surprises as everything was clearly explained in advance. So far, I do not think that Mom could be in a better Place, and that is very comforting to me.

This is the most beautiful place I’ve seen by far, as I tour places for my Father. The entire experience was wonderful! Shirley is a beautiful, caring, all around wonderful person!! My tour with her was so nice, and comforting... She really made me feel so much better, and calmed my nerves so much. I’d refer this beautiful home, to anyone without thinking twice!! If you’re having a hard time finding a wonderful place for your loved one... go see Shirley!!! You won’t be disappointed!!

This has been an excellent move and new home for my mother. She is out of her apartment most of the day, enjoying activities or just spending time in the lobby. That was not the case in her prior independent senior residence. The staff is very caring and interacts with my mother affectionately. The food is plentiful, and there is a danger of weight gain, perhaps--but no worries about keeping elders hydrated. I really like the smaller community where there is plenty to do but everything feels personal and unhurried.

My Dad has been at the memory care unit for a few years, basically since soon after Cedar lake opened. I have found the staff to be very nice and enjoy the fact that the fun/activities manager and Memory Care Director are interested in who and what makes my Dad the person he is although the disease has changed him so much. The dignity of the person suffering from Dementia could be so compromised because of what occurs throughout the course of the disease, yet these folks are preserving the person and personality that was once there and is still inside. I commend them for that. The caregivers are great. Your loved ones are in good hands!

Moving my mom into assisted living was not an easy decision, but I couldn't be happier that we chose Cedar Lake. From our initial visit to our moving-in day to her continued care, the staff has made every step of this transition easier. Everyone knows her by name and knows her specific needs, and the open communication let's me know that she is getting great care. She is also very active in the fitness program and attends many of the social events. Knowing that she is safe and happy means the world to my family! I can't recommend Cedar Lake enough.
