The staff is really awesome and the place is nice
The community is good for independent or more assisted living care. I don't feel the community can provide skilled care due to staffing and training. If your loved one is independent I would recommend this community.
The staff was good. The food was adequate.The kitchen staff was easy to work with. The room sizes and layout of the community was good. They had outdoor space for the residents to use. Overall we had a good experience.
Mother has adjusted very well to her new surroundings. I credit the staff for this. Food is great, and we even get to eat with her on occasion, with no extra charge. Staff is very attentive, and activities are often and varied. Mom participates with most. Now that the weather is better they have a very nice patio area for the residents to enjoy. We think the value we are getting is most worth it. Could not be happier.
My mom has been at Brookdale Battle Creek, MI for about 2 months now and she loves it. She is 94 but has become acquainted with all of the women and even checks in on a few older ladies to make sure they are doing alright. Us kids call her the social butterfly of Brookdale. :) She loves the fellowship, the food, the care and especially the parties and entertainment. She is very active and social so Brookdale was the perfect place for her!
My mother in law receives lots of attention. She is eating well. As her needs change, the needs are accommodated. I have good communication with the nursing director. She really enjoys the activities. Private room with private bath. Laundry service. Continuum of care. Tremendous value.
My mother has recently made the move into this community and so far I have no complaints of how things are going. The facility is a lot newer so I am hoping once they get some more experience with how things go, everything will run smoother. The staff have been kind and I am comfortable with the care they have been providing my mother at this time.
We are happy with the care that my mom is getting. The staff are kind and attentive to my mom's needs. The community is clean and an over all good environment for her. We both have been happy with the meals that are serviced. My mom is staying active with a lot of the activities. We would recommend this community for the good care and value.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. They seem to be knowledgeable and concerned with the well being of their residents. The things I didn't like about the facility were more cosmetic; the dining are was a little spartan, and in the memory care unit showers are not in the bathroom within the residents' room.
We are happy with the staff at this community. The community is clean and a nice environment for here. They need more staff and some of the house cleanings could use some small improvements. The menu is good and she is pleased and likes the variety. We are happy that they are taking a time to make sure that she had the care that she is needing. They do need to work on getting more staff that can help and they need to make sure that they are trained. We would recommend this community for the care of a loved one. We would recommend that they are informed of all the charges and it needs to be made clear on all the cost.
This looked like a nice community when I visited. The people I met were nice. This community is for assisted living and we found that my loved one needed independent living.
I trust this community to provide top-notch care to those in need of services in the Battle Creek area. The homelike setting makes it easy for the staff to really know the residents and their family members. Every time I visit the community, the residents are busy doing activities and enjoying meals. I recommend people come for a tour to see for themselves. The memory care building just had a renovation, too.
The rooms are small and very dark. My mom needed a bigger room and more sunlight in the daytime. It seemed to be very hot inside and it would not be a good fit. Families might like this for a lower cost for the needs of the family member needing care. We did not see activities or were offered any of the meals. Families might see if this is what they are looking for when it comes to the care of a loved one.
We had to move out of this community as they were not able to care for my wife's needs. They charged us for extras that some of the staff did not have the qualifications to help with. Some of the staff are nice and others are not as nice. The food is pretty good. This community is not as well managed as other communities in the area. I am not sure I would recommend this community.
My wife is now a resident of Brokdlae Battle Creek and although it has taken some time for her to adjust things are going well. The place is maintained to its highest standard and there are absolutely no odors to speak of. I've been able to enjoy quite a few meals with my wife and there are no complaints about the food. She is now participating in activities and is slowly starting to adjust. I would definitely recommend.
We have been happy with them. They have been very good to her. It's clean, and looks nice when I go. The food is pretty good, even though that can be really subjective. I don't have any complaints, at this point.
We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one, and I thought Sterling House of Battle Creek was quite nice! It had a very pleasant, homey feel, and all of the residents that I spoke with seemed happy and content. The care they offer isn't quite as comprehensive as what we think our loved one may need in the future, but they are definitely worth a look for other families looking into care in the area!
My mom has had a few issues and they have dealt with it and handled everything really well. It is a really nice group of people.
They do pretty good overall. It would be better if we could have heat control in the individual rooms. It's centralized heat, and it's really hot in there. The common areas are a perfect temperature and in the rooms it's like a sauna. It would be nice if they washed the clothes by individual rooms rather than all together, clothes come up missing or you end up with other people's clothes. The food is good and there are no complaints about the activities. They wanted to do bathing on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and that seems like odd timing, to have a bath after two days, and then not again until five more days. I would think they could space it more like three days and then four days or something. The staff is pretty friendly, the ones that have more experience seem to be better with adjusting to the residents personalities.
Mom and I visited Sterling House today. We actually agreed on something...we both really liked it! The dog, Casey, is a nice touch since we are dog people. It felt homey and comfortable. The residents provided positive feedback without and prompting. We will definitely keep this place in mind!
