Ever since Tarantino took over the quality of service has gone downhill. The rank and file staff are caring but management is only interested in the bottom line. My parents lived there for 3 years and each year things got worse especially in the quality of activities, caring, and meals provided by management. My parents sustained significant injuries last fall at the club house through no fault of their own. This required substantial medical care and a need for a prompt move from independent living to a care facility near family who could coordinate their ongoing medical needs. There was not a word of concern from the administration and an insistance we pay two additional months rent. After the two months were passed, they took, without authorization from us, what they asserted they were owed in damages directly from my parents' bank account. This was done before providing us with a damage estmate. We found they charged us for a brand new garage door (we agree Mom dented the door but it was functional) instead of charging the replacement cost for an undented 15 year old door. When questioned, we were assured by management the money would be immediately refunded to our account and a repair or depreciated cost estimate would be provided. Over 45 days later a refund has not been issued nor have we received a replacement cost or repair estimate. As I said in the beginning, the place is not the same since Tarantino Management took over. Decide for yourself what you would call an organization which takes money, without authorization, from the bank account of residents who have always paid all bills on time. You have been warned. Look elsewhere.

I will agree about inquire about personal care. The staff, always changing . The management is inconsiderate and don't care about the residents but more about quick fixes problem after another problem. Too many uneccessary and rude things go on here. Unorganized. Dishoveled. Inconsiderate.

As with any Assisted Living Facility, I suggest potential residents research this facility with state/government agencies that license such organizations. In Florida, search the organizations license on the AHCA website or call AHCA directly; review their 16-page report detailing why the facility lost its license after a surprise investigation on 7/6 - 7/7 2015. READ THE WHOLE DOCUMENT. Beware their contract versus their pitch, scrutinize the contract before you sign on, insist on the promised tour, eat the food and more than once, and ask about the medical competency from WITHIN this facility. Ask about "personalized care" and don't ever move in before you talk to the people who live there. If you choose any facility, get your own doctors. LIVE NEARBY. Inquire about personal care. Compare website promises with that contract. Get everything in writing, including promises of physical therapy, personal care, even how many actual trips residents take to that "heated swimming pool" or that waiting list for one-bedroom apartments that don't exist. Understand that such organizations as "A Place for Mom" aren't about you or your loved one: they endorse and rate facilities highly for their own benefit, of course. Hence my urgent call to all potential ALF residents to contact the state's elderly care agencies about the history of any facility. I have nightmares about my mother's life at Lake Forest Park, a property of Tarantino Senior Living. I'm thankful she is no longer there.

My Grandfather enjoyed the facilities but after he passed away, the management packed and moved his things to storage without the family's consent, even after we had paid his rent for the month. It's hard enough dealing with a family member's death but having some of their possessions disappear and not be recovered is heartbreaking. How do you tell great-grandchildren they won't be getting something promised to them?
