Brookdale Union Park in Monroe, NC
4.2

The care services Brookdale Union provides are great, however it is a more expensive community. Before COVID they had activities like arts and crafts, and they would also bring in a preacher. The rooms at this community are pretty nice.

The staff was very friendly and the feeling we got when we toured was very comfortable and I think I would like to be here if I need senior living. Communication was very good and if there are any issues they will call and let me know immediatly I would recommend the community to others.

Everyone was very nice. The main caregiver was good and I liked her. The community was comparable in some aspects to Sunrise. Our experience was during the pandemic and short time period.
