Welcome to Lakestone! My name is Carol Upshaw and I am the Executive Director of Lakestone Terrace.
I joined the Lakestone Terrace team in 2012 but have worked with seniors and Sagora Senior Living or six years, beginning my career as a concierge, then sales and marketing director, which has led to my current role.
Lakestone Terrace is truly a family environment. When you walk in our doors, you’ll be greeted by happy, caring and loving people.
When asked what the best part about our location is, one of my residents said it best: why would you want to live anywhere else because everything is right at your fingertips here! From shopping to being right on Lake Granbury, we have an assortment of activities to fit your needs. Our dining room has such a wonderful assortment of foods that shopping is no longer a necessity, and housekeeping is no longer needed since it is provided. No dishes, no cleaning, friendly people and great activites – you can’t beat it!
My favorite activity is “Reflections with Carol”. I get to listen while our residents tell stories of their lives and share their wisdom with me. I have learned so many interesting things and it brings me closer to each resident. I also love attending the monthly birthday lunches and enjoy seeing our residents pampered by our associates with great food and dessert. Their eyes light up during these events and it is so much fun to see! It is great to see families visit and to show off how happy their loved ones are living here. They enjoy seeing mom or dad joking with their new friends, playing games, and trying new things. Our residents don’t just sit in their apartments, they are out and about enjoying and loving their life!
Our team at Lakestone Terrace is a very caring and nurturing group of people. We are all truly concerned about the well-being of each one of our residents. Whenever an associate is needed, we are eager to jump in and help. We live by our Resident First philosophy.
Thank you for taking the time to learn about our community. I look forward to meeting you soon!
