  • Brighton Gardens Of West Orange

    Everyone at the community was very accommodating and very nice. They were all very friendly. The medical office was not as communicative as they promised they would be. It felt a little bit like they didn't want to help me with assisting my friend with her needs. Some of the aids, however were absolutely phenomenal. Some of the food was pretty good, not great, and some of the wait staff were very good as well. They encouraged the residents to participate in group activities. The director was pretty accessible if I needed anything.

  • My mom is so happy

    The team at Brighton Gardens has been fantastic. My mother moved in about 6 months ago and is doing very well. Everyone that we have come in contact with has been so caring. From the sales team, to the executive director, to the front desk and the girls that care for my mom. I cant say enough good things about Brighton Gardens.

  • Do NOT choose Brighton Garden as a dementia facility.

    Brighton Gardens is poorly equipped to handle dementia patients who exhibit typical dementia related behaviors such as agitation, confusion, and aggression. My father just suffered a severe head injury, which along with his mild dementia led to the aforementioned behaviors. We were constantly assured by the facility's sales rep, [name removed], that these behaviors would be addressed appropriately. However, once we signed on the doted line to the tune of over $10K per month, we learned otherwise. My mother, sister, and I, were daily visitors, so we saw first hand how the staff dealt with patients who were more challenging than their preferred patients, i.e., those who had limited communication skills or were semi-comatose. Patients who were confused, agitated, or showed signs of aggression were spoken to poorly. My mother overhead a staff member speak disparagingly about my father. It pained us to think what was said when we weren't there. Medically, my father had numerous urinary tract infections and episodes of high blood pressure that were often overlooked. Although his behavior had taken a turn for the worse, it was often attributed to his dementia and not his medical condition at the time. My father's stay at Brighton Garden culminated in him being forced to go to psychiatric facility for a psychological evaluation. One of the staff members left the obituary page of the newspaper in his room, and one of the deceased had the same name as his sister. My father was confused and saddened at what he thought was the passing of his sibling. In seeking information, he shook a woman who he regularly confused for my mother. As a result, the staff on duty made the decision to send my father to a psychiatric hospital. The staff NEVER called any of our family members to inform us of this decision. I only found out, since I had stopped by on my way to dinner. By the time I had gotten there, my father was calm and in his room. The obituary page, however, was still in his room, despite being the cause of his agitation. In order to avoid being send to the hospital, I had to agree to sleep in my father's room all night and take my father for psychiatric testing the next morning. As is normal protocol, the hospital does a complete medical before any psychiatric testing is done, so that medical issues can be ruled out as a source of the behaviors. When we got to the hospital the next morning, my father tested positive for yet another urinary tract infection and his blood pressure was a whopping 231! My father was kept overnight to monitor his medical condition. The psychiatric department did a psyche eval and released my father immediately. He clearly was not a candidate for the psychiatric wing. All I have to say about this incredibly, horrible experience is SHAME ON YOU, Brighton Gardens of West Orange. You should not be in the dementia business if you are unable to address typical dementia behaviors.
