Read what our residents and their families appreciate about the Lighthouse experience.
A Comfortable Environment
There’s just something that feels comfortable about Lighthouse Senior Living. After three months in another facility that just didn’t feel right, my wife became a resident in The Village at Lighthouse Senior Living. From my experience, it couldn’t be better. The people here are super friendly and very helpful – from top to bottom. Staff are extremely responsive, jumping right to it when you have a request or problem. And they’ve been both flexible and supportive, which allows me to spend more quality time with my wife. As family, I always feel welcome when I’m here, and I know my wife is getting the attention and care she needs. It’s a class operation. – Don D.
Thank you for becoming ‘family’ to us. You can train staff to do a great job and be efficient, but you can’t train them to have heart and be compassionate and loving. I can’t imagine having to go through this without Lighthouse and I’m so grateful I haven’t had to. – Jodi
Innovative Memory Care
You really have created a professional paradise for senior care. It takes awhile for care-givers to form a bond with memory impacted residents, and the on the job training that Lighthouse leadership is providing is the main contributing factor to Lighthouse’s success. I hope that staff realize that they are working at a top care giving facility in Maryland.
I am very grateful to everyone at Lighthouse. – John W. D.
Peace of Mind
Living on her own had become too much for Mom – it was becoming harder and harder for her to stay independent. After several falls and a trial stay in respite care, Mom moved to Lighthouse Senior Living. The experience there has been wonderful for her. A former hospital nursing director, Mom had grown accustomed to being the one in charge. But the staff at Lighthouse takes the time to listen to her, to be patient with her, to support and encourage her. From the bus driver, who treats her as if he’s her own private chauffeur when he takes her to her dialysis three times a week, to the Activities Director, who helps Mom continue to host her weekly card games with area friends (complete with a special card table and snacks!), the Lighthouse staff have been outstanding. They have practically adopted my mom as their own, ensuring she gets both the quality care and personal attention she needs. As a nurse practitioner, I have peace of mind knowing she is safe, in a caring community, with a kind, passionate, and qualified professional staff. – Cathy R.
What to Expect at Lighthouse
Lighthouse Senior Living doesn’t give off the vibe of “assisted living”; it feels like home. It’s a comfortable environment that is manageable in size. The staff treats the needs of you and your family member as if you are their only focus. They are available to our family 24/7 and routinely keep us informed about my sister-in-law’s care. What’s more, they engage with my sister-in-law as if she’s been with them her whole life. They develop a family-like, cozy, personal relationship with your loved one and with you. They are true partners, providing trusted, loving care. – Steve M.
My daughter was living alone and no longer driving after she retired. Her world got really small and she lost many of her social connections. She needed a safe environment that stimulated her, but that also cared for her health and welfare and ensured her safety. Lighthouse Senior Living is that place. Since living at Lighthouse, my daughter’s demeanor has been dramatically different. She does things now we could never have gotten her to do before. She looks forward to the activity schedule. She is with her coffee group in the morning, knitting by the fireplace. There’s a peacefulness and yet a very social environment. These are her friends. It’s been transformational and truly has changed her quality of life. Everyone there is like family, and she knows she can turn to anyone for anything. – Betty P.
Unexpected Caregiver Benefit
Before I found Lighthouse, I struggled to manage a full-time job and a busy home life with the role of caregiver for my sister. I went looking for a business relationship with a provider that could give my sister the care she needed. But, what I found in Lighthouse Senior Living was so much more… something I didn’t even know could be there; something I didn’t see at any of the other places I considered. They recognize that as caregivers, we are protective about our loved ones. From the beginning, Lighthouse quickly built trust with me, and got me to relinquish some of the responsibility. They won me over and suddenly it felt like they were not only taking care of my sister, they were taking care of me. – Janette M.
Long Term Care Insurance Help
Lighthouse Senior Living helped our family navigate the process of activating long-term care insurance, which we never had to do before. The Lighthouse team held our hands through the full transition, providing the insurance company with the required documentation and making the entire process seamless for us. – Fred P.
Confidence in Quality Care
Mom had been living with me for almost a year. She was beginning to need more assistance with all of her daily activities. I found myself rushing home, after working full time, to relieve the caretakers I hired to take over the role of caretaker for nights and weekends. After a trial respite week, Mom reluctantly agreed to try staying for a while. She enjoys sitting outside and talking with other residents on the front patio area or in the beautiful courtyard. The activities director is exceptional and provides many interesting activities and outings for Mom to participate in. The caretakers, staff and administrators are just really excellent. They are friendly, kind, and quick to respond. They simply go above and beyond. It is hard to put your mom in someone else’s care, but the small group atmosphere, the personalized attention (even the chef is eager to learn your food preferences!), and the good feeling you get when you’re there, gives you the confidence to know that she’s in a good place. It’s been a good experience for Mom and for her family. – Lisa H
