How did your business begin?
We opened our doors to local seniors and their families Feb. 1, 2022, and had our official grand opening on April 14, 2022. It was a wonderful celebration with more than 300 people joining us over the two days of events. Lakeview Retirement Community is part of the Resort Lifestyle family of communities, and we were the 48th community to open.
What is your mission?
Our mission is to serve seniors from our hearts, every day. We work together as a team to be sure our residents’ and teammates’ needs are met, that they feel safe and have a beautiful time celebrating their lives at Lakeview. Our all-inclusive, fun-focused lifestyle offers everything from companionship to wellness programs. It’s worry-free retirement — we take care of the cooking and cleaning so our residents can focus on wellness and having fun. You feel the buzz in our friendly community, love our live-in managers, and marvel in the freedom dining program. We invite the local community to stop by and meet our happy staff and residents. We think you’ll like how it feels!
