Great place for Seniors. Its always clean and well kept. All the people who work there know how to care for the elderly. They are patient, friendly, helpful and kind. Some go above and beyond to help their residents. I would want to live in a place like te Gardens when my time comes.

Lots of very caring staff with employment longevity. Nice size, not immense like some places. Beautiful wooded views out the back windows. Three meals a day, residents seem to like the food. Activities if you are looking for social events.

I have done special programs and visited residents at the Gardens at Westlake. My experience has been wonderful every time. The staff at the Gardens is very welcoming and helpful. Jason Stitt, Director of Fun lives up to his title! He is a very hands on Director, he is talented in many ways, from singing, driving the bus and arranging a full schedule for the residents. His assistant Beth Tousley, Fun Coordinator is always in touch with the residents. Louise Ceepo, Community Relations Coordinator comes up with quality programs to include the Community and showcase their great facility. Mary Lou Spagnola, Director of Community Relations also does a great job. Walking in the front door it is very clean and staff members smile and greet you. Everyone from Housekeeping, Dining, Personal Aides and Maintenance are helpful. Several of my friends have lived at the Gardens and were very happy. I would highly recommend taking a tour and see for yourself.

My mom and dad moved into the Gardens in April of 2014 and became very comfortable living there after a natural transition from their home of 40+ years. After mom's passing, 1-1/2 years later, dad has adjusted to his new life without mom. This transition could not have happened if it weren't for the comforting and caring staff at the Gardens. Beth has led the way with her kindness and has gone far beyond her job description to comfort Dad and get him involved with daily activities. The nursing staff, including Paola, Jennifer, Laci, Noreen, Colleen and Lisa have been extremely affective in attending to dad's extensive medical needs and communicate with us and dad's specialists to adjust medications. The dining room staff, including Becky, Gavin and Rene are very friendly and willing to make adjustments to meals and dad really loves the food...especially breakfast. Alice is always quick to put a smile on a resident or family member's face in the dining room. Housekeeping is done very professionally on a weekly basis and Dawn even returns dad's clean clothes to drawers and closets. Caregivers are available to help dad when needed and Pricilla is always available for a comforting/encouraging comment and on occasion, a teasing threat of the dreaded 'cold' shower. Friendly faces, Barb, Dawn, Tammi and Sue, greet my wife and I as we arrive at the front desk and are quick to answer any questions and more. Overall Dad is extremely happy to be a resident at the Gardens and I feel extremely lucky and grateful that he feels this way.

Gardens at Westlake is absolutely amazing! The Residents and staff sure know how to have fun. Being in entertainment, we go to many different places, we are so honored to be able to participate in the Happy Hour at the Gardens. This place really wears us out!!! Thank you Jason and staff for giving us the opportunity to entertain your Residents. We totally appreciate it and love to come out there for your Friday Happy Hour. If anyone needs an awesome "home" for a loved one, Gardens at Westlake comes highly recommended. Having worked as an STNA for many years, I can see how happy the Residents are and how caring the staff is. This is a place I would feel comfortable and safe placing a loved one in if you don't have the option to keep them at home with you. Rock on Gardens at Westlake!!!

My family moved our mom into The Gardens at Westlake November of 2016. The care and attention she has received by all the staff has been fantastic. She needs help getting dressed in the morning, and always has a lovely outfit complete with jewelry and accessories. She is included in activities she enjoys, but is given her privacy when she chooses to take a pass. We are especially pleased with the nursing staff with Poala taking the lead with mom. she is in tune with moms special needs and handles her with respect and dignity. The staff at the front desk, Mary Lou the go to gal, and everyone we have dealt with have been wonderful. We feel very lucky to have found such a great place for our mom to live.

My Mother has been at the Gardens for two months now. She has had to transition from living independently for ten years in sunny California, to 'weathering' the climate of Ohio, no longer driving, and living with assistance! The staff of Gardens at Westlake have been by her side through it all, and because of their compassion and guidance, she has found her independence within their walls. She continues to grow with each day, and is enjoying the many varied and stimulating activities, especially the Friday happy hours, haha! Thank you for all the hugs and for making her feel so at home.Deb Stano

I have lived at the Gardens for almost a year. My apartment home is so comfy with my studio in the loft and the sun that streams through my skylights. My kitty Simba and I have been treated with kindness and understanding by the caregivers here. The decisions made by management reflect their value of the individual. They, within reason, treat each resident as a unique individual....you cannot buy this attitude. The meals are done with taste and nutrition in mind,the four courses are terrific. The giving up of housekeeping, laundry and cooking is the reward for my fifty years in healthcare. I am very happy here.

My parents moved to Gardens at Westlake 18 months ago, and are very very pleased with their apartment, and living conditions. When first moving in, my mother had been quite ill, and was well taken care of. As she healed, the demands on their assistance dwindled. They have been able to come and go as they please, have card games with their friends, happy hour, have a beautiful apartment, fed fantastic meals, and are checked on when needed. If you enter the complex, you will see very happy and involved individuals. I highly recommend the Gardens at Westlake. A great move from your home to your new home.
