Our experience was terrible, the director was a great guy as well as the aids. But we had a problem with the two head nurses. They dropped the ball with our loved ones care, She was severely dehydrated and had a severe UTI, so she was taken to the hospital. We then found how she got C diff at this community. The nurses did not make the staff and other aids aware that our loved one had C diff, we were the ones that had to make them aware since it is very contagious. We felt our loved one was neglected by the two nurses. One of the head nurses was not friendly towards us at all. Our loved ones bathroom was disgusting. We also were the ones that ad to tell them to call an ambulance to come get our loved one on two separate occasions not the nurses, All of the staff members were wonderful except for the two head nurses. the aids did take really good care of our mother as well as the people at the front desk. The director spent a good amount of time with our mother, and he really did care for her.
If we could give the staff a 10 our of 10 stars we would, they are great. The grounds at this community are absolutely beautiful, the entire place is covered in flowers all around the rooms. The rooms provided for the residents are awesome, they are very spacious and very cozy. Our loved one didn't always participate in the activities but they had bingo, care games, a bus service that would take them up to the casino. They have an expensive library, and an audio system in there in case you have trouble reading. For those residents that are of Italian denomination, there is a catholic school across the street that arranged an Italian festival with a huge feast. Our loved one is a pretty picky eater, and she absolutely loves the food, she is very happy with it.
They are very receptive to families' needs.They put residents first. Communication was good.Rooms and bathrooms were very clean. They did a good job with laundry, never lost anything. Overall they did a good job and they were very professional.
In mid summer my mother became extremely ill in her hometown of TR NJ and after a lengthy hospitalization and rehab we were forced to make the difficult decision to relocate her up to CT near us. My mother had no input in the selection due to her illness and because we told the rehab facility we were not interested in leaving her in NJ they decided to discharge her with little notice to our family. [Name removed] was extremely accommodating and met my sister and I on a Sunday. He arranged for someone from Sunrise to observe and document her condition at the NJ rehab and jumped hoops to help us move her quickly. Yes, there are a few unfavorable reviews we saw on the web but we checked the DPH licensing web and checked on things like service or health violations as part of our decision to move mom to BG. They bent a rule and let us move her on a holiday weekend since we had to get her in sooner when the NJ facility gave us two days notice of a discharge date of Friday before labor day. As my mother has improved, she has come to consider this her home with new friends. The staff have been kind and considerate of her recovery and care. They give her choices in her wardrobe selection and activities since she is wheelchair bound at this point. She loves her meals and feels happy, much happier as time passes, [name removed], the ED has answered each and every question that we come up with, is very responsive and the receptionists are so helpful. We decided at the 11th hour of closing up her house to bring up her kitty after the first month who is also elderly and the staff has been wonderful with [name removed]. I hope in considering choosing BG you will visit and check all sources, talk to staff and tour the facility. You will see for yourself that many factors go into a big decision with what is best for your parent or family member. We have found all the staff to be courteous and considerate and right down to the Director of Facilities, who responds quickly to complaints if any. The fact that Mom is close to myself, my two other siblings and we can see she is happy is a bonus. That and the friends I have made with other resident's family members. For our family it is a win win all the way around. And, then....let me tell you all about [name removed]........
My mom was at Brighton Gardens Stamford for 8 months before she passed away. She passed away last October 2018. The office staff is very kind. They welcome family participation and visits. I loved being able to help my mom and spent endless hours visiting with her. They have lots of outings and activities for the seniors. Often I had to wait for mom to finish her and activity....I was always encouraged to join [removed] The staff always made me feel welcome. This statement doesn’t just pertain to Brighton Gardens....it’s all facilities. Most of the aids are very caring...but like most facilities they’re understaffed, busy, every one has great days and bad days. No matter how busy they were the facility was clean. They always took time making sure they accommodated what was lost important to my mom....how she was dressed. I would match mom’s clothes outfits .for 2 weeks in advance they would take the time dressing her. It wasn’t easy...mom was a one person assist in a wheelchair . It was very important for my mother to dress nicely, she didn’t want to wear stretch pull-up pants, she wanted her jeans/zippered pants, button downs blouses. They always took the time to dress her making her feel special. She always had makeup, hair/ nails done by the in house stylist. They do a great job working with all personalities. We didn’t find any major problems to address and the minor concerns were immediately addressed. They were extremely concerned handling any situation with respect to the patients and family. If you have a request they try their best to accommodate. The elderly in ALL facilities need outside help from family members to keep up with their personal wants and needs also to keep a watchful eye for personal products. Now and then the seniors need a little push and can get complacent. I think it’s up to the family to follow up with their aids. The aids are -always happy to comply. You need to be their advocate and talk for your loved one. It’s a 3 way partnership. The seniors cannot be left without loving help from someone who personally cares. Brighton Gardens was very caring when mom or I had any small complaint they took it very seriously. Most times is was handled quickly If not I followed up and they were quick and happy to respond. My mom loved BG....for me it was a bitter sweet....I didn’t want to admit my mother was getting older and needed help. I can’t think of a more loving place for her to spend her last days. Remember no circumstance is perfect especially when it’s an heightened emotional time in our life. We can’t leave our aging parents in any facility without lovingly helping them. It’s like having a child when you send them off to school you still have to work with them at home. It’s not the schools responsibility to raise your child. It’s the same with senior it’s our responsibility to lend a helping hand. I personally had the best last 8 months with my mother with the help of Brighton Garden faculty! I miss visiting my mom her friends and the staff. We had many wonderful laughs! I miss and love you mom!!!! Thank you Brighton for happy memories!
My mom was there for about a year and received some good care. Every weekend it was like a ghost town. You couldn't find a caregiver or nurse anywhere. Many times my 90-year-old mother had to fend for herself and often fell. When questioned why she fell, they responded that she should have waited for care to show up. I was there every weekend paying for that care that never showed up and ended up having to be there to take care of her. The guy who ran the place was dope. He had no clue how to interact with people. He had no idea what was going on and didn't care. He was busy flirting with the help and leaving for hours. I used to watch and time him. The place needs a facelift for sure and the food could be much better. They need waiters because everybody was served cold food by the time it got to their tables. I experienced this first hand. Maybe if they paid staff what they deserve and hire the right amount of people, it would work.
There is good and bad about this place. Most of the people are nice but the leadership is poor and there is a huge turnover. Since my parents have been there they've gone through 3 directors. What is the reason? They are often short of caregivers so the residents are left to fend for themselves and the rest of the staff appears tired and overworked. The best staff members quit and are replaced 3 months later. The building always has issues with heat or AC and leaks and other things that constantly break. Residents end up paying for the repairs out of their costs. There is one maintenance guy for the whole building inside and out and he looks exhausted. Food is edible but I've never had anything i would brag about. Seems to be more concerned about the price tag than the quality. I would take my parents out but they are comfortable at this point but I would say that there are better places to spend your money.

Brighton Gardens of Stamford promises a lot more than they deliver. The food is cheap grade and they often run out, the activities are boring and a lot of the residents are agitated due to lack of stimulation. Sales team sells it but they don't deliver. They are always short staffed, never enough help and the ones that are there don't move very fast. My Mom was on the floor in her room for 3 hours. Nobody responded to the pendant she pushed for help then they tell you "she never pushed it, it didn't register". I'm currently looking to move Mom out to another home.
Beautiful setting. People very friendly. Spoke with on-site physical therapist and other department supervisors. Apartments are nice. Warm environment. Can address all required needs. This could work for us.
Don't rely strictly on the tour. They show their best then, but the care does not match up.
