Cannot be beaten

I looked at 2 others facilities and chose Brighton Gardens because it was more professional in their presentation, actual appearance and physicality of the building itself, and seemed much safer which gave me more re-assuring that my mother would be well taken care of. The room size she had was great for her needs. The people who took care of my mom every day took care of her like it was their own mom. I would absolutely recommend.

Great staff members

We have had a great experience with Brighton Gardens of Mountainside. We chose it because I needed to find a place quickly and they had availability quickly and I felt more comfortable here. I have only seen my mothers room on the memory care side, but it is on the smaller side and they do have other sizes to choose from. If you compare to some other assisted livings, it is not as fancy but it is very homey and clean and the people here really care. I would absolutely recommend to others looking.

Happy with our experience

We chose Brighton Gardens of Mountainside because it was the most centrally located facility between the siblings and the easiest to get to. The room sizes here were adequate, my mother was in a one bedroom and it was perfect for what her needs were. We did eat here a few times and the food was good, they always had variety to choose from and they provided snacks throughout the day. My favorite part about the community was it was beautiful, well kept, and they had a nice outdoor space for the residents. It was very cheerful feeling when you walked in. I would recommend.

Overall great place for a loved one

The rooms at Brighton Gardens are nice, although they could be a little larger. They could have better WiFi service. They have bingo, movie night. They take the residents to the mall to go shopping. My mother does not really like the food, its not very flavorful. There could be more of a variety. The location is great, really close to where we live. We would recommend this to a family or friend.

This place made my mother happy

My favorite part about the community was the activities, even during COVID they offered a lot. They painted their rooms and had a happy hour and even provided beer around 3 each day. They played bingo and had puzzles. We chose this community because of the value for our money. The size of the room was just what my mom needed.

The staff is very nice and they do try to do a lot. They have been doing the best they can during the Covid-19 pandemic. The food according to my dad is so-so. They are pretty ok with keeping the community clean.

Not What We Expected

In the beginning a lot of the staff were very helpful to my mom and my mom felt that she formed friendships with them. But as time has gone on, we have experienced many issues and staff are less helpful. Her hearing aides go missing for a few days at time, she doesn't receive mail, she's not showered often, and they seem to be missing her medications. She lives in the memory care so she and the other residents need reminders for activities. The activity board has the schedule on it but the residents don't know time and place anymore so they need staff to get them there. Residents go in and out of my mom's room and take things. My mom says its depressing and when I go everyone is just sitting around in chairs. It's just not what I expected.
