I had the great pleasure of visiting my mom at Lakewood daily before COVID, and got to know the place, staff, and residents very well. What a comforting blessing it was to see this close up! Of course, the place is gorgeous- looks great, smells great, beautiful dining room and food, meaningful activities, etc. But the staff... that’s Lakewood’s “secret sauce.” They are genuinely caring and loving people, and they understand Alzheimer’s and know how to work with it. The staff delights in their residents, and they honestly do know each one well- his/her likes, dislikes, history, quirks, and triggers. Lakewood is a joyful, happy place, and the residents are well cared for; definitely nothing icky, sad, or depressing like some other places I visited. I imagine it would be difficult to have a parent move here during COVID bc you wouldn’t have the benefit of seeing and feeling the place for yourself; I do hope this testimony gives you peace in your decision if you are considering Lakewood. I am so grateful my mom is here.
This place is a dream to work with! I’ve seen many Alzheimer’s homes, this one is home! This staff goes above and beyond to make residents and family feel at home. They have such a loving warm touch and treat each resident like family. Each and everyone staff member has a special place in my heart! If anyone asks for a place to send their loves ones; I send them here! You guys rock! Keep up the amazing work.

Our Person-Centered Care approach focuses on our residents’ needs, while our Active Living Programs allow them to live life to their fullest capability. Our residents feel at home in Lakewood because our approach is based on the residents’ lifetime routine, not ours. Additionally, we provide health monitoring, medication management, assistance with dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care.
Our community’s leadership team includes our Executive Director, Health Services Director, and Life Enrichment Director. Our passionate and dedicated team of skilled professionals offer exceptional support for our residents’ needs, including physical, social, emotional, and cognitive needs, through engaging daily activities.
It’s easy to become spoiled with our 24/7 Dining Experience. We go beyond all-day dining so you can enjoy gourmet food prepared from the freshest ingredients by our Executive Chef and team of professionals any time of day or night. Since our quality of food and service must be experienced, we invite you to join us for lunch or dinner. Our chef is trained and happy to accommodate residents with dietary needs due to various health restrictions, such as low gluten and sugar-free diets, and much more.
Our daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet that fosters brain health. Our goal is that the MIND diet, in conjunction with our many Memory Care programs, will help hold off memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices. Learn more about our Memory Care dining program and the MIND diet.
Sensory stimulation is the activation of one or more of the five senses (taste, smell, vision, hearing, and touch) with the goal of evoking positive feelings. This innovative therapy can reduce tension, agitation, anxiety, depression, and anger which are common behavioral side effects in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementias. By planning meaningful, stimulating activities and considering our residents’ unique interests, we can create personal experiences in our custom Sensory Spas and make a significant difference in our residents’ lives.
Our state-of-the-art Virtual Reality Therapy enables residents to explore bucket list journeys and experiences they’ve always wanted to complete, all within the comfort of our community. With VR Therapy, your loved one can explore the Caribbean sea and virtually scuba dive with sting rays, or discover an untapped passion for music with VR first row seats to the New York Metropolitan Opera House. Whether it’s travel or new experiences your loved one seeks, our new, groundbreaking therapy can make almost any adventure dreams a virtual reality.
Lakewood is close to Ascension SE Wisconsin Hospital, Brownstones Shopping Mall, and Fox Brook Park.
