Need Round the Clock Loving Care?
You've Come To The Right Place
Assisted Living Gets
a New Facelift!
Open Letter From Jody Knox, CEO
I was so excited in 1989 to open the new Assisted Living Unit at Northgate. The facility was modern with soothing colors, large rooms and a beautiful dining room.
My son was just two years old at the time. He is now 34 and, believe me, he’s changed from a beautiful toddler to a handsome man!
But sadly, our Assisted Living has not. Recently, we reached out to a local foundation for funding. That foundation generously helped us modernize resident rooms, with new carpet, cabinetry and freshly painted walls that replaced peeling wallpaper.
But like every room you update at home, it makes the rest of the house seem shabbier and outdated. So today, we are reaching out to you and all of our wonderful donors to help us finish the “rest of the house”. Our goal is to provide new carpet, texture and paint in the halls and dining room, new kitchen cabinets, and furniture for the dining and sitting room areas.
The contractors have estimated this project to cost $225,000. I know that’s a lot of money but 32 years is a long time to wait. Now is the time and with your help we can make it a reality.
Please consider including this much needed project in your year-end giving. Lakeview does not receive any government funding for Assisted Living. It has been our history since 1960, to continue providing care, even when our Assisted Living residents have exhausted all their financial resources. We must rely on good friends like you to help us help those in need.
As you know this is not a project that can be accomplished one yard of carpet at a time or one wall of paint at a time. The past 21 months, our residents have been under COVID-19 restrictions and their surroundings have become more important than ever. Your generous gift will allow us to complete this much needed project and will provide a more comfortable home for our wonderful residents.
And like my son, 32 years later, we will look different too!
Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
We are excited to share!

"My dad was surrounded by an amazing staff that cared for him. He loved it at Lakeview! When we visited, he raved about his friends on staff. I had never heard such positive things about any other nursing home. This was truly the best place for him."
"Thank you for enriching my mother's life with prayer and song. Thank you for spending valuable time with her and demonstrating that her life mattered. Your caring presence contributed to her comfort and peace as it did to mine." ~Lisa B
"Don't ever try to second guess God! My 93-year old mother is a living miracle. After a terrible fall in May, she went home from the hospital on a local hospice service. After a couple of months on 24-hr care, she was taken off her medication and my mom started to come back. We moved her to Heaton House at Lakeview in July because she was not capable of caring for herself. After three months of care there, she was able to move into Assisted Living. She loves her apartment and tells me every day 'I can finally start living again'. Thank you, Lakeview, for your love and support!" ~Sandy Gruber
