This nonprofit assisted living facility is among the best in the state. It has a temporary care floor that everyone wants to get into. (There aren't enough beds for many people and current residents take priority.) The care my mother received on this floor was amazing. The staff has enormous patience. The management holds meetings monthly with residents to communicate about the resident's wants and needs. None of the staff are supposed to take tips day to day, but a large donation at Christmastime is made by each resident to a fund that's split between all the staff. Therefore all the staff are motivated to be helpful all the time to all the residents, not just the ones who tip best. It seems to work, because all of the staff are amazingly helpful and nice. All the time. They really go out of their way! There are a lot of residents with physical or mental disabilities, and they're much happier than if they lived alone. And there're a lot of healthy ones leading happy, active lives there. And one final note. I've asked quite a few how they liked working at Lenbrook. I do this at many places. If they don't like where they work, I get jokes and equivocal answers. At Lenbrook, I get wholehearted endorsements. (I'm not paid to say this, it's the truth.) I'd like to address a previous reviewer 's comments about racism. You are right, in one sense. Many of the residents are white and were born in the 1920s and 30s, and their parents taught racism in the cradle. Some have evolved, but I'm sure there are at least a few who have not. That's not management's fault, nor do they cater to it. Not all the employees are black, but all are held to the same standards of behavior - standards that that generation expects. All of the employees work there by choice. Many of the department heads at Lenbrook are black and help come up with the rules and standards that govern this institution. I understand where your impression came from, but you might look a little deeper before you condemn an entire institution. Not everything is about race. I want to brag a little bit. My mother was born in the 30s, but in the 1960s she integrated the waiting rooms at the pediatrician's office where she worked, where Martin and Corretta King took their children. Before he was so famous. The waiting rooms were separate. She said, "This is stupid", and just changed it. Not much was ever said. To this day she doesn't tolerate racism. Not all the whites of that generation are racist. No place is ever perfect, but at Lenbrook, you get the feeling that they do try.

What I have observed about Lenbrook is that it is the equivalent of going through a time warp. I was back in the Antebellum South on a plantation. Blacks serving uppity whites. The help has to wear plastic smiles at all times to make the old whites feel comfortable. If a server failed to smile, the whites would complain and the server risked getting fired. If a server failed to bring water or such they were at risk of losing their jobs. The Lenbrook is a racist establishment that caters to closet racists. Black people don't even eat there. The only patrons are old white people that need to feel important and fantasize "The Good Ole Days.
