Comforting

Overall the whole environment is good. The staff is very friendly, and they keep the residents busy. The community might need some updating, as far as the rooms are concerned; but other than that it's very nice. The facility is locked and secure, we feel comfortable knowing our loved one is safe there. From what I've heard, communication between the community and our family has been very good.

Good Place

If your person (like my loved one), is really picky about everything, then I recommend that you try to get somebody to come in to give more one-on-one care - and that would apply to ANY facility you choose. I was happy with Brighton Gardens during the short time my loved one was there. The staff were all very friendly, and I was quite happy with them. It's not the most expensive place, but certainly not the cheapest. But I think it was a good value.

Wonderful Staff

They made the move and transition process very easy. This community is a good value for the money. The staff here really just seem to care about the other residents and my loved one. They have activities like people coming in to play music, bingo, dancing, meditation and a lot of different things to keep the residents busy and occupied at the community.

Mediocre

This is not what I expected. I would like to see them get here quicker when I ask for help. The staff are very good, but on weekends they have temps come in, and they don't know what they're doing or what they're supposed to do. I do like the food though, especially the desserts.

tour review

Our family had an in person tour and the tour was nice but it felt more institutional. The hallways were lined with monitors and with the residents charts so it reminded us of a hospital and not a home. The staff were very thorough and very complete but for the money it just wasn't there. nice tour but felt more insitutional

I liked this community but I feel like they went to far by giving me a price before evaluating my loved one. It made me not want to go here.

Mom is revived and thriving

They do what they say are they are going to do in the beginning and follow through with all of their promises made. When you have a lot of needs and are trying to assure your loved one has the best of care, Brighton Gardens has proven that everything we asked for will and has been done. Mom was disengaged with life before, and she has become engaged and involved in life since she has been here. I would definitely recommend to others looking, it has worked very well for us.

I would say to go ahead and visit. My loved one was there a short period of time. During that time, the staff was very good. They were accommodating to the health issues of my loved one. The community cooperated with Hospice very well.

Our mind is at ease knowing our loved one is safe here

Brighton Gardens employees were very friendly and very well managed, which made us feel comfortable that there wasn't going to be a high turnover rate. We really liked how welcoming the front entrance was. The rooms are pretty spacious, our loved one has a one bedroom with a front seating room. It is perfect for what she needed. They offer a variety of food options to choose from. We have been really happy with everything, they have done an excellent with informing the families during COVID.

I would want people to know when looking into Brighton Gardens that you should go have a meal with your loved one. Just see the flow and walk around as much as possible different times of day to make sure it is a good fit. I would absolutely recommend this facility.

Quality Care

Brighton Garden's staff are very knowledgeable and always ready to help in any way. The staff must be treated well by the management, because all the key staff have been there for many years. The place is cheerfully decorated, the food is very good, and the activities seem suited to the abilities of the residents. It is pricey, however, but as a result, the residents get the attention they need.

Columbia resident with parent in assisted living - Loved one of resident/client
Good care and excellent environment

My parent recently moved to assisted living at Brighton Gardens after several years at another facility. We had toured places all around central Maryland and chose BG because of the range of activities and the engagement of the resident community. It hasn't disappointed -- activities have ranged from simple games like bingo to TED talks and a guest lecture from an astrophysicist, and the staff aims to keep residents active and in contact with each other. Brighton Gardens stood out from everywhere else we visited because the social interactions aren't limited to meals and activities -- many residents hang out in the common area, so their worlds are larger than their apartments, which is especially important for someone with mobility impairments. Assisted living isn't a situation anyone would hope to be in, but Brighton Gardens provides good care while trying to also keep everyone as happy and involved as possible. This is the right place for us.

Not at all good

I rarely weigh in on public forums such as this, but have been so incredibly frustrated with the care provided to my parent at BG Columbia, I decided to add my impressions to the mix. I recognize many of the writers of reviews posted and frankly, rarely see them visiting their loved ones, at least during the day. Perhaps they are only able to visit in the evening, but if that’s the case, I would strongly suggest visiting during the day so you get a better picture of the day to day routine. While there are some kind, caring staff, for most, this is just a job. This is especially true of managers, all of them. I don’t see any effort on their part to create an environment they would want for their own family members. Shameful. I have found bruises on my parent that no one seemed to notice or report, have had to ask repeatedly for showers and hair to be washed, not to mention toileting. Don’t expect them to accommodate your family member’s needs. The corporate line reigns supreme at BG Columbia. Someone once told me that most people who place parents in assisted living are just looking to warehouse them. Apparently that’s the sad case for many, but my parent deserves better.
