The Lafayette is the premier retirement residency in Lexington. The friendliness of the staff is sincere and abundant. The residents welcome you with open arms and consider you family. Entertainment is varied and often. Exercise, crafts, self improvement, educational, health, dancing , and musical programs are offered. The decor is elegant and charming. Our dining room sparkles, and the food is delicious. The atmosphere is warm and caring within its walls. In a word it is my "Home", and I wouldn't live anywhere else!

My father lived at the Lafayette for over a year and a half. He loved it. It's a great location....near lots of medical facilities, near downtown, near shopping, near the University. The grounds are so well-maintained as is the facility. The staff is wonderful --- very attentive and kind. My father lived out west his whole life so moving to Kentucky was an adjustment but he told me he couldn't had done better choosing a place for him to live. I scoped out the entire Lexington area before I decided on the Lafayette so I did do lots of comparison. I really like the step up care....there is a rehab wing next door at the Country Place, personal care living and then skilled nursing. He spent time at the Rehab to Home wing and had such good care. I recommend the Lafayette and Country Place highly.

The location of the LaFayette gives it a huge advantage over the many retirement and nursing homes in and around Lexington. We are close to downtown Lexington and the University of Kentucky, Lexington's Circle Highway is only a couple miles away so access to anyplace in town is easy. Seniors who are now living active family and social lives in Lexington can move here and make little or no change in present life style. Most of us here previously lived in larger quarters, often with house and yard and lots of memory pieces. "Cutting Down" is a job that should be done while a person or couple can still participate. Otherwise the job will be done at a stressful time with job being left to grown children or strangers. You know which items are valuable. They most likely don't. The main difference for newcomers will be to eat 3 meals a day in a fine dining room (prepared and served by a friendly staff) , and have weekly cleanings of apartment and bedding change. You can have your own furniture and belongings. LaFayette maintenance staff help with picture-hanging, furniture moving within the apartment and other needed steps to getting settled. The whole scenario makes retirement living even better than where keeping up a house and yard requires energy, time and money.

When I came for a tour, a gentleman resident said “At first I didn’t believe them, but it’s true.” He meant the good things he heard about The Lafayette. The staff could not be nicer and the residents too. You feel you are in a big family and this is home – maybe better than home – you are not isolated. The food is good, they take you to your doctor, drugstore, the mall, shopping trips, etc. They have a library with daily papers, magazines, physical therapy on site, hair salon, and entertainment and educational programs. But if you want “alone time” you go to your apartment and that’s fine too. The staff is constantly trying to make everything better.

The Lafayette is a wonderful place to live. The apartments are very roomy and comfortable and my apartment on the fifth floor has a wonderful view. There are many activities going on every day. The employees always are friendly and call everyone by name. There are trips to the grocery store, pharmacies, malls, and restaurants and wherever you want to go.

I have been at "The Lafayette" for 3 1/2 years and love it. I never thought I could have so much fun at a seniors residence. We have lots of activities here. I have made so many new friends.
