  • Brookdale is for advanced dementia patients

    After our mother had moved in, we noticed the cushions in the main lobby had been soiled. However, the Brookdale administrator was wonderful with getting our mother in their quickly. She was very helpful and very accommodating to our needs. The rooms were very spacious, actually a little to spacious for the dementia care patients. Our loved one did not like the food at Brookdale, she found it to be cold a lot of the time and she wasn't eating well when she was there.

  • The staff is the best

    Staff is extremely friendly, the value of this community is great compared to where my mom was. This staff has done excellent. We chose this facility because it was a bright facility, they had a great look. The location was great. Mom says someday she likes the food and others days doesn't. We would recommend this to a family or friend

  • Skilled and compassionate caregivers

    My father lived here for about 1.5 years after Mom had been his caregiver through the earlier stages of his dementia. Dad was comfortable here from the day he arrived. Staff members took time to build personal rapport that kept him smiling and feeling at home. On occasions when he left the facility he was clearly happy to greet their familiar faces and relax upon returning. Along with meeting other residents’ varied needs they always kept Dad well groomed, and maintained the facilities well despite the special challenges that can arise in a dementia community. When Dad needed to switch to a puréed diet, they carefully prepared varied menus, and he continued to enjoy mealtimes. His dementia included a restlessness that kept him walking all day long and through most of many nights, the staff patiently accommodated this quality-of-life need while guarding his safety as much as possible. They carefully monitored his changing condition, keeping me informed and recommending appropriate changes in medication, food, and therapy strategies. The medical supervisors became trusted partners in helping our family navigate the course of our journey with Dad through his illness.
