Review of The Oaks at Lakewood

4 Star User Review

I have had the pleasure of touring the Kindred facility in Lakewood, Wa. What I saw there forever changed my concept of a Skilled Nursing Homes. Having toured many in this general area this is what I found at Kindred Transitional Care and Rehab. after many hours of touring I found:

Competent skilled nursing. Call lights answered promptly. Friendly and gracious staff even in the most difficult circumstances. When residents were out of their rooms in the hallway; every time a staff member walked past them, the staff member greeted each with a smile and inquired of their needs. The place was immaculate , the food smelled good and looked "good". The residents appeared content. I could see they were safe. As one resident was attempting to get out of his wheelchair a CNA or nurse was there immediately to ensure their safety. When asked one gentleman stated he "really liked it at Kindred". The staff their clearly loved their residents (including janitorial, and management) and were willing to go at any lengths to ensure safety, and comfort. I will choose Kindred when my loved one is in need of skilled care. I cannot say enough good about Kindred and their staff. I have been to MANY skilled nursing facilities in the Tacoma area, no one can surpass Kindred Transitional Care and Rehab. PS the Rehab department is amazing. Thank you for the opportunity to show my thoughts and my observation. Not a nurse
