When we first walked in after visiting so many places, there was this sense of community. It is a smaller facility with 2 wings and then an outdoor space. There is no stench when you walk in either which was huge for us. It has a more inviting and homey atmosphere to it, not institutional like so many others. I was able to bring my horse up there to visit with the residents. The outdoor space is wonderful. The staff were all great as well. I would highly recommend Bear Creek Senior Living.... Read more

Good But Not Great

My loved one's biggest complaint is the food. It's very bland, and even though they put out a menu, they're often out of things and rarely have what's on the menu. Other than that, regarding things like friendliness, cleanliness, and staff she's partially satisfied, although not completely.

Definitely recommend

We chose Bear Creek because we were were not happy with his previous facility. It is very friendly, when you walk in the people are always in a group doing things, not just sitting by themselves. They are very active and always doing something. It is very easy for him to make friends here and he is very happy. I would definitely recommend them.

CCRC - 5 star rating with Medicare. My husband thought this was the best option due to the small corporation size. But the sales person was just plain slick. He wasn't able to answer many questions re: memory care. Said that the memory care coordinator would be the one to ask but she wasn't there and I didn't email her to ask. The facility is like a big hotel. It's not bad, but isn't really anything special about it. It is just around the block from where my sister currently lives, but that's not enough to persuade me.

It was an awesome place

During the time our loved one was there, they would take her on walks up and down the halls because that was one of the things she loved to do. It is a beautiful area surrounded by mountains and the grounds are just as beautiful.

Great location, nice people

My grandma had stayed here before it was Bear Creek and that is why we chose it for my friend.The only complaint that I do have is I was on the phone with my friend, he was having heart pains and when I was talking to him on the phone, I could hear a staff member was at the door screaming and yelling at him. Other that incident, we were happy with the faciliy. The administrator here was very nice and helpful.

Absolutely Great!

In late April 2018, I fell, hit my head and lost consciousness. After a week in the hospital, I lived in a facility for six weeks, and was then moved to Bear Creek Senior Living. Upon arrival in Mid- June 2018, I was suffering from bed sores equal to third degree burns across my heels and buttocks. I had lost nearly forty pounds at the previous facility, was not strong enough to sit up and was not lucid. In addition I had nerve damage in my legs and feet and was unable to stand, let alone walk. The staff was very, very good to me. With their care and encouragement I regained my lucidity, my health and my ability to walk. I went home for good in November 2019. I cannot say enough positive things about the Bear Creek facility, staff, management and yes, the food!!

Death by neglect

My Father-in-law was in Bear Creek for 7 days with a broken leg. He died at the end of it all. Unfortunately, they are understaffed I guess and participate in a "pass the buck" workplace philosophy. I understand being busy but rudeness from the staff left our family frightened at the prospect of the lack of care he would receive because he is 80 and OCD. Our fears were confirmed when we came in the day before he died and a CNA came in placed his food by his bed and my husband said, he can't feed himself, it looks like he had a stroke!! The nurse looks down and says, yeah maybe he did. INCOMPETENT!!! So many more stories in those few short days. If you want your loved one mistreated or killed, send them to this 5 star [language removed].

Outstanding senior living facility

Bear Creek Senior Living is an outstanding facility! We have been so impressed with the clean facility, very caring staff, attentive doctors/PA, good food, etc. We just can't say enough good things about the nurses and CNAs! They are so caring and attentive, and you can tell they genuinely care about their patients. I can't imagine there is a better senior facility around. I can't recommend Bear Creek Senior Living high enough!

DO NOT MOVE INTO THIS FACILITY

I just moved my mother OUT of this facility. Moving her in was the worst experience. Brookdale is more concerned about corporate profits than they are about a quality living environment for their residents. They are extremely understaffed and the staff they do have is poorly trained and lazy. On more than one occasion my mother was left unattended while preforming bathing, which means they left her alone naked in the bathroom while in the middle of bathing for up to 30 minutes. The staff is slow in responding to call buttons. The average response time was 15 to 20 minutes. The Administration is unresponsive when concerns are addressed to them and there is no attempt to fix issues. The nursing staff is lazy and untrained. Do not move into this Assisted Living Facility.

Great except for one staff member

Was going to give a five star review as all the staff members are great, helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. Had to cut the five star review in half solely due to this particular employee....would not recommend this facility as your first choice unless you specifically ask this employee to stay away from your loved one.

The facility was clean. [Name removed] answered all my questions and showed everything I asked to see. The staff and residents were friendly. Since we are looking for respite care at this point, this is a viable option. I sensed my loved one will have good, attentive care.

Care and comfort for mom

This was a nice tour that we had for the care of mom. I like the staff who were able to show us the community. I was not to please with the cleanliness at the time of the tour that may have been taken care of. The menu was appealing of the healthy variety. The activities are offered to the residents who are able to participate. I would suggest that families tour the community for the care of a loved one.

Very friendly staff. Clean and has a good menu to choose from. Apts. come in different sizes and gave us a lot to choose from. I have had some problems with having my Mom's meds given to her. And for the $500 a month they charge to order store and give the meds I would say the first month was not worth it. Hoping things will get better

Horrible care!

The worst care I have ever experienced in my life! If you care about your loved one who actually needs ANY medical care.... I urge you to look outside the tour, on the non wealthy side. Awful care. Yes it looks nice. But, if you truly want professional care... You can barely get help when your loved one truly needs it!
