04/12/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: My parents have been at Holy Redeemer Lafayette since November 2012. They are in a 2 bedroom independent apartment and are quite happy with the facility. It would be nice to have a washer/dryer and dishwasher in the apartment, but they manage without-the free washer/dryer is down the hall . Their only complaint was the food. The chef has changed and they seem to like the new choices. I visit regularly and find the independent area clean and well maintained. Their apartment is cleaned by the staff and is spotless. I can't comment on the "personal care" or "nursing home" part of the facility, but the independent piece has worked out very well for out family.

    07/30/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My grandparents were both living here until March of 2013, when they basically had no choice but to leave and move across the country to relocate at the ages of 88 and 93. They lived at Holy Redeemer for about 4 years in a 2 bedroom apartment. The staff was fine, but somewhat negligent. The facilities were not clean in general. My grandparent's clothes were often lost in the laundry, even though they were clearly labeled and organized. When my family realized that my grandparents money was depleting and they no longer had the money to afford the at least $80,000/year for their apartment and mediocre food.
    When my mother went in several times to speak with the social worker and heads of the facility about other options in terms of moving into a smaller apartment or other financial support, they had no interest in offering any other information. With my mother crying, the social worker in fact questioned my mother's choice to have my grandparents living there at all, and told her that she cared for her own mother at home and maybe that's what we should do as well. That's certainly not an option for everyone. The director of the facility was very lax in returning my mother's calls and had no interest in helping in any way when she did finally speak to him. This place is a business. No sense of personal care or consideration, and no empathy for any of the families of the elderly who are living there.
