Good Transition

It's good value for the money, although it's costly. We picked this community because of the location, it was near other familly members, and the closest community to my loved ones doctors.

tour review

Our family had an in person tour and it was a really good tour but we did not care for the parking situation for the visitors - at the time the gates were closed which could of been because of covid but we would have to park around the block and walk back, and at night time we just did not feel that was safe for visiting family so we saw that as a drawback

Brookdale Makes a Difficult Transition Easy with Their Knowledge and Professionalism

I would tell others that the people here are very friendly. The staff made is easy for my loved ones to move in. They are kinds, courtesy, and knowledgeable here. They are very responsive to the family and our loved one's requests. I would recommend Brookdale to others for their loved ones. The quality of the food is good; however, my loved one feels the times of meals are a little too early for their liking. There are options to eat in the dining, take the food back to your room to enjoy, or pay a fee to have it delivered. Exercise, movies, library, puzzles, and more are some activities for the residents to choose from. There is a calendar of activities that the residents are given.

Nice Compared to Other Places We Looked At

It's been a good experience at Brookdale Brea. They only issue is additional little costs can add up. For instance, you can have meal delivery at no charge nine times total, and then they charge $12, which I think is a little high. And it's hard for the elderly to absorb those costs. The staff have been pretty good. Maintenance is super helpful. We haven't had any problems with anybody there. It's a clean facility, and it seems like they have good activities.

Highly Recommend

They are superb. The food is like a four star restaurant. It has a chandelier, cloth napkins with beautiful holders, tables are positioned very nice. The residents are sat near others that compliment each other. They have an individual menu everyday. They order like they are a restaurant. The residents feel valued. They get appetizer with meals, it is very nice experience.

Our Brief Experience at Brookdale Brea

I think they could have handled some things better with our loved one, although I know they had their hands full with him as well. He went into a bit of an episode with some behavioral problems. He also came up with a rash, so we thought he might have had an infection, which might have been why he was acting strangely. Brookdale sent him to the hospital. But come to find out from the hospital at his release, Brookdale didn't say anything to the hospital about the episode. So I'm not sure why the situation occurred in the first place, and I wish their communication had been better with both the hospital and with our family. It just didn't turn out to be as helpful of a place as I thought it might be.

Review of Brookdale Brea

First place I looked at. Love this place right away. I love the size and the price of the room. Executive director always honest and supportive about facility. Caregivers are always at their jobs. Ready to help me out when I need it. I have a dog and they take her out for walks in the courtyard for exercise. I enjoy mixing and mingling with others.

Great! Excellent care! All the caregivers and servers do their jobs with a smile. My room is always clean, my laundry is always neat away, and hung in my closet. I don't participate in activities but enjoy watching others and hearing all the positive talk about the activities they just did.

Great Place to Put Your Loved One

It is beautiful and my husband loves it here. The staff is very friendly. The apartments are studios and very roomy. The community was able to find furnishings for the room for us, since this was a temporary move. They even have a visitors room for the families to take advantage of to see our loved ones.

Does not offer a memory care facility for when my mom will need to transfer over time. However, if she only needs assisstance this place is workable. the upstairs room is perfect for balcony and front door overlooks the entryway. Facility is small but they have started social activities. Price is very reasonable.

Horrible customer service

All talk and no action! After a highly encouraging initial conversation with a member of the sales team about securing a spot for my mother with end stage cancer, nearly every promise made was quickly broken. Promise: They were to email me a breakdown of costs and options. (Never happened). Promise: They had a bed and would welcome my mother the next week. (Turned her admission down without ever examining her). My sister toured the facility with the Chief of Sales, leaving with the impression that all was going swimmingly well. (My mother’s hopes were dashed; she was crushed. Five sisters had come to terms and had chosen this place. Emotions were high anyway; the unreliable positive build-up was cruel and completely unprofessional) Promise: Chief of sales, [name removed], answered the phone and promised to call me back as soon as he was finished with a meeting. (Did not call back; I called him back an hour later and receptionist informed me that he had left for the day). Implied promise: As directed by his voicemail, I left a message requesting a call back, leaving two contact numbers. (He never called back.) I wouldn’t trust anything these people say!

Didn't quite fit our specific needs

I toured this facility and it was really nice. I liked it because it has a homey feel to it. However, it did feel a little closed in and my Mom has claustrophobia, so overall it wasn’t ideal. The courtyard didn’t have any cushiony seating available either but they said they’d be able to bring pillows out to make it more comfortable. I was able to take a look at the rooms and one of them had a lovely little balcony on it. The prices overall seemed good and I think it would’ve been a good choice for her if it weren’t for the narrow spaces.
