  • The Brentwood Story

    The Brentwood Story Good afternoon, my name is [name removed]. I am a retired educator in poor health, who is latent-deaf. Inspite of these challenging circumstances, I am grateful to be a resident of Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility in Lecanto, Florida. Why am I grateful?I am delighted to answer this question with several examples in straightforward, honest details. My analysis of Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility is not without bias. But it will be completely accurate, fair and honest. Two years ago I was recovering from a car accident, at Oak Hill Hospital in Spring Hill, FL. I had been homeless for months and living in my car. I had only some clothes and a car that was totaled. The hospital was reluctant to discharge me without a safe place to go. They sent out an SOS message to all health care and retirement communities within a 100 mile radius. The message asked if anyone or any place was willing and able to help a 70 year old hospital patient who needed safe affordable housing. Of all the many communities and facilities that received this request for help, guess how many responded? Only one. Only Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility along with the Brentwood Health and Retirement Center answered this call for help. [Name removed], the Care Liaison at Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility together with [name removed], the admissions director of the health care and rehabilitation center at Brentwood came to the hospital to talk with me. They came to help, they were the answer to my prayers. They offered me time and the opportunity to receive the therapy vital to my recovery. [Name removed] had a small studio apartment in the retirement community that was affordable and would be available as soon as I was discharged from the rehab center. Their generous assistance gave me a new life, filled me with hope instead of despair, joy instead of tears, a home that was safe and secure, instead of the uncertain dangers of homelessness. [Name removed] received support and approval to furnish my little apartment with furniture, bedding and linens that I did not have. My new residential neighbors gave me dishes, bowls, glassware and silverware that I needed. I sincerely appreciate the many kindnesses that were bestowed on me. I lost the health insurance I previously had when I moved to Citrus county. It would take time to re-establish healthcare benefits under a new policy. I required medicine, tests to monitor the status of my health immediately. [Name removed], the Executive Director of the entire Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility was instrumental in arranging for my immediate health care needs to be covered until my new and permanent health plan became effective. [Name removed] also applied for a drug discount card, on my behalf, to curtail the costs of my medicines. What I hope you readers recognize from my detailed examples, is that the defining and distinguishing features of Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility are the remarkable people who work here. This community and the people who care for us residents are the benchmark standard of excellence. You may be thinking that other communities and facilities have caring administrators and directors as well. In all truthfulness, I don’t know for sure; I would think they should and probably do I can tell you truthfully that the cost of living at these other places is much higher than the cost of living here at Brentwood. The plush décor, the new and fancy transportation vehicles and the gourmet meals they provide are very expensive. For me they are unnecessary and overrated. For me, luxury, glitz and glamour are just a showy display that does not enhance the quality of care, enrich, promote, or extend my life in any way at all. Healthy nutritious meals, a warm and homey atmosphere is far more beneficial than any superficial furnishings will ever be. To what extent or degree these other places and people provide generous and unselfish care, I am not sure. But I can attest unequivocally to these irrefutable facts. [Names removed] are endowed with abundant characteristics such as humanitarianism, patience, dedication and love. There are countless others that you will meet when you come for a visit and hopefully decide this is the best place to live. These hardworking individuals lavish attention, concern, time and effort on every resident, whenever and wherever the need arises. Brentwood is the epitome of quality health care, inspiring and life enhancing services as well as selfless resident-focused care that insures a safe and healthy environment at a reasonable and affordable cost for everyone. Brentwood is the complete and total living package. This complete and balanced arrangement is meticulously maintained by the men and women who work diligently for the welfare and wellbeing of all the residents. During this Covid 19 pandemic, we have had all our meals nutritionally and safely prepared and hand delivered to us daily, without additional costs to the residents. The extra effort is displayed with joy and smiles to boost our spirits. [Name removed] and [name removed] deliver loving hugs and thoughts through cards and gifts of simple goodies to all the residents. These procedures are established to maintain the highest levels of health and safety during this crisis. Brentwood Retirement Community and Assisted Living Facility is the ultimate loving environment and the special place we call home. This is my genuine, precise and true analysis, with just and fair commentary , which is the result of personal experiences and personal knowledge. Thank you for taking the time to read the Brentwood Story.

  • A good tour

    The staff we met during our tour of this community were nice. The community is older, however it did look clean. I was not impressed with the dining room as it felt small. I think this community may need some updating. I would recommend taking a look at it to see if it would work for your loved one.
