Welcome to Bay Lake. 

There's nothing like living near the ocean - the breezes, the views, the warm days. Bay Lake is an Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care Community in Virginia, Beach, Virginia that experts call one of the most progressively designed senior residences in the country. 

Our mission at Bay Lake is to bring seniors the finest retirement living environment that includes assisted living and special needs care. That's one of the reasons we're located in the lovely Tidewater area of Virginia, near the Chesapeake Bay side of the ocean, in a beautifully classic neighborhood.

Deb and I would just like to express our gratitude for the services you and your staff have provided over the last two and a half years for my mother. As her health deteriorated over time, and unfortunately her personality along with it, your staff showed tremendous professionalism and compassion both to her as well as our family. It was such a relief to us to find a caring environment to handle her needs that we were unable to provide for her ourselves, and have no doubt that without all of your staff’s care we would not have had her with us as long as we did. Our family always felt welcomed whenever we came to see her and we were always kept appraised of her condition and any problems that arose. It certainly was reassuring that we could continue our daily lives knowing that she was safe in what she grew to consider “her own home.”
I know Deb especially will miss seeing everyone there, she and grandkids enjoyed visiting with the staff whenever they came in to see mom. If the situation arises in the future that we might need a facility such as yours, please know that we will be in contact and hope you will be able to assist once again.
I know “thank you” can’t possibly say it all but please accept this as our deepest appreciation for all you’ve done.
