My grandparents live in the Lantern Crest community for the last 3 years and they are very pleased with everything. The staff members are very kind and helpful. Food is delicious, they do Sunday brunches every Sunday and they are great. My grandparents are living in a 2 bedroom 2 bath apartment but Lantern Crest has studios, 1 bedrooms and cottages also. Overall Lantern Crest is a great senior living community. Highly recommended
