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. I would recommend to others looking.

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.

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!

Not the atmosphere we were looking for.

I have been here several times. It feels like you're in a nursing home.
