Recent reviews of Assisted Living in Petal, MS
Brookdale Hattiesburg II
4.0

I have to say I am pleasantly surprised as to how well my mom is adjusting to this community. She has already seemed to have settled into a routine. She is doing activities when she wants and she is enjoying meeting new people and making friends. The food is fine and they serve good portions. The inside of the community is nicely decorated neutral colors on the walls and plenty of lighting. There seems to be enough space in the common areas around the building for residents with walkers or wheelchairs.

We chose Brookdale Hattiesburg because the price was the cheapest that we were able to find. The room sizes here are very nice. They did have quite a few activities provided for the residents but my loved one did not participate. The covid virus was going on while she was here, so there was not a lot of freedom. Overall though, I think if they improved the food and the care it would be worth the money.

I moved my mom into this community for good care. I am not happy that they moved her into another room and did not infor us. She is happy that the community is clean. She seems to be happy with the meals. They do offer her activities, but she is not active. I would not recommend this community myself.. Other families might consider this community when looking for care for a loved one.
