My review of Brookdale

We chose Brookdale because of the location, and we checked it out and we were very happy with it. We went in at the most inopportune time during Covid and from day 1 from going we have been impressed with how they have handled the situation. The room sizes here compared to a normal studio apartment are a little larger than average. I would tell others that residents cannot get out of the building, it is very secure and safe.

About the facility Brookdale Avondale

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida, you can find Brookdale Avondale conveniently close to many physician’s offices, banks, restaurants, and shopping centers.

However, assistance with mobility, as well as with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and grooming, are provided when they’re needed.

Here, each resident is provided with a comprehensive care package that includes an assessment and a detailed plan. Care plans are flexible and will be adjusted accordingly if needs change over time. Best of all, there are no surprise costs, and you will not pay for a service you don’t truly need.

We Wouldn't Return to This Community

Our first experience was great, so we decided to place our loved one for a second time at this community. The second time wasn't great. The room was dirty for our loved one. There were personal belongings that were missing and we never found the items. We had trouble with follow through of calls and the care of our loved one. Overall, we weren't happy with the care of our loved one.

Brookdale Avondale

Every time I have been there the community has been clean; they do a great job. The staff reaches out to me a lot to discuss my mother's care. They really have gotten to know her and her needs and are always thoughtful with her. With the Covid-19 pandemic, they have been very on top of protecting the residents and testing them and have communicated with us regularly about what they are doing. Brookdale Avondale is definitely a good value for the price.

The facility was very nice. We loved the screened porch and the outside courtyard. We adored the studio apartment setup. The Director answered all our questions and we left with a better understanding of how the process work in finding a safe place for my dad.

some what under staffed

My friend is doing well here her room is spacious enough that she can move about in her wheelchair and the care giver that they helped me find for her has been great. She and I stay in touch on regular bases. There have been a few things like not having her dirty laundry done and not picking up her dirty dinner dishes when she eats in her room. I feel this is probably because they are a bit understaffed. The staff there do a very good job and they have been very helpful with my friend as she is in a wheelchair and they make sure she gets to be a part of the activities, she is an artist herself so she loves the arts and crafts, she even gets to go out on the outings with her wheelchair. I would definitely recommend a tour of this community.

Communication could be better

Overall, my loved one's stay at this Brookdale location went fairly okay. The facility was very clean and the staff was very polite. One concern that I did have was the fact that, when an emergency situation occurred with my loved one, the staff and doctors failed to adequately inform me about medications, how she was doing, etc. I felt that this was a crucial error, but besides this, Brookdale is fairly nice!

I love this place!

I absolutely loved this community. The staff was very helpful and really good and answered all questions that I had. They offer so many things to do with the residents. The meals were great and good portions. The only reason we did not go with them was because of the price. Other than that I would recommend this community.

Excellent home for your aging loved ones.

Excellent staff. I'm very satisfied with this Brookdale Avondale facility. The staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. The care, attention, cleanliness, activities, medical, security, location and food are Top Notch. The decision to move my mother from her home of several years was difficult and trying, but the staff made it easy. I want to commend Dena and Bethany.They know what they are doing and are very professional kind and helpful. My mind is at ease and feel comfortable with my mother being in her new home. I will highly recommend Brookdale Avondale to anyone looking for a home for the loved ones.

I think they are good in different areas.

I think they are good in different areas. They weren't as proactive, or as thorough as one would hope. The billing and financial end can be a little shady, we are finding some hidden costs. She thinks the staff is great. The food isn't fabulous, it's okay. The other residents seem to be pretty friendly so far. We liked the location when we chose it.

Very nice place!

My loved one has only been here a short time, but so far we're very pleased with how things turned out with Brookdale Avondale! The facility is clean and well kept, and they treat our loved one like family! The staff is kindhearted and caring, and they've been very accommodating regarding any questions or requests that we've had for them. I was also impressed by the amount of effort they put into their holiday decorations and activities! We did have a small maintenance issue during the move-in, but otherwise it's been a great experience!

Nice, homey community

We're very pleased with how things are going at Sterling House of Merrimac! It's a nice looking, well kept place, and the staff all seem very friendly. It has a very relaxed, homey atmosphere that I thought my loved one would really thrive in. We saw some places that were fancier, but I think they just would have been too busy for her. The staff here also just seem more caring and in-tune with their residents.

I liked it. It was very nice. We went with a different community that was closer to my home, but this one was very nice. We might have chosen it if it was closer. It was clean and everyone was very nice.
