Seems like a comfortable nice place to live

Nice and homey feel. Super helpful Staff with helpful advice to help my Mom with her changes in life. The main doors were wide open, letting in fresh air. Great 80's music playing, staff at desk gave a smiling, friendly greeting. Everything smells and looks very clean. Cheerful residents and cheerful staff talking to residents. (This was an easy and casual interaction.) Mailboxes are easily accessible in main area. I could see the big open courtyard when I walked in the entrance. I was given a full tour and a couple of the Staff and I went to a room like my Mom would have. We sat in there and they answered all of my questions and gave me lots of other helpful information. Very upfront. They asked questions about my Mom too. I never felt rushed.

tour review

Our family had an in person tour and we really liked the room we were shown - it was on the first floor and it had a sliding glass door where you could walk out into the courtyard and it would of been a wonderful fit, but we read some of the reviews that made us think otherwise.

Community Tour

We had a nice tour at Brookdale Central Whittier. I liked the lady who did the tour. The rooms were just very small for our loved ones' needs. Also they were undergoing renovations and things were pretty torn up at the time, so it was hard to anticipate what it would look like when it was finished.

My opinion on Brookdale

I would tell others that they have a very large staff turnover here. I think they could hire a real chef and it would help improve the food quality. Overall I would recommend others to take tour before moving in, they have had an awful lot of structural repairs on the facility lately.

Would not recommend

We chose this facility at the time because she was at a Brookedale in CA, so we wanted to stay with this company. The reason we ended up moving her was because there were only 2 staff members that were actively there and there were easily 30 residents or more. It is a larger facility than the one in CA, but they still needed more staff. It seemed to be more of an independent living facility rather than assisted living. I was not satisfied with the way they tracked her medication either, when I moved her they did not keep accurate records so the new facility did not have any to go off you.

I am not sure if I could recommend at the moment

We chose Brookdale Central Whittier because it seemed at the point that they were meeting out overall needs of overseeing the care that she was going to need. The sales consultant and director and were open and warm and made it very inviting. They have had a significant change in staff members from when we first started. We have run into issues with the quality of food since the pandemic and staff seems to not be paying as close as attention to things. When they were between directors, there was a very good director keeping things in check and he started a weekly call with families so we are able to dial into a zoom session every Friday to keep up with what is going on inside the facility. I am not sure if I could recommend this facility at this time.

Really liked the tour because it helped me with some decisions and this is my first tour. I now know I would like a place with a small population, such as Brookdale Central Whittier has. Like the 2-story with balcony and the variety of stores available on Washington that can walk to.

Pet friendly facility

When looking for a facility for my Mother, I wanted something close to me and this one is only 5 minutes away! It is a smaller community so it’s easier for my mom to remember where everything is. All of the staff members are really nice and they know my mom by name. The transition for her was a little rough in the beginning but the staff is able to be more personal and that made all the difference. This community is pet friendly and there is no odor to the building at all. I would recommend this facility to other families.

Everything is going well!!

My mother has recently made the move into this community and so far things are going well. The staff have been helpful in the transition and have made sure to accommodate her needs to the best of there ability. I like the fact that they keep in good communication with me about her care and make sure to answer any questions I have for them. Overall it has been a great place so far for her.

Lovely Place!!

I have no complaints of how things are going for my loved one since she has recently made the move into this community. The staff have been excellent with helping make the transition easy for her and are accommodating to all of her needs. They also make sure to keep in good communication with me about her care and answer any questions I have for them. She always says the meals are the best part about this place and they make sure to have a wide variety with lots of vegetables. Overall we are very happy and would recommend it to anyone.

They are being well taken care of!

Brookdale Central Whittier is a very nice community where my parents live. They are doing very well and are happy with the care and support they are receiving. I haven't had the opportunity to dine there with yet, but they say they like the food. My dad has had issues with not cutting his meat small enough and has choked, but other than that I've heard of no other complaints. The staff is very friendly and are very welcoming when family comes to visit. The atmosphere of the environment is very warm and homey. The activities mom enjoys the most are going to the casinos and exercise activities provided at the community. They have a beautiful atrium where we can all go outside and sit and visit. The landscaping is beautiful and well-maintained. I feel comforted by the fact that I feel they are safe and they are in good hands. I would recommend this community to friends and family.

Feels Like Home Not a Hotel

I have had a good friend of mine live here for about a year and she has really changed her outlook on life. She came to this community isolated and living alone. Suffering from a fall, losing her husband years prior. I didnt think I would see my friend get the light back in her eyes. She loves all the wonderful staff who try to make her smile every time I come visit. She raves about the dining, the director goes above and beyond trying to accommodate every resident and their different tastes. Severs are always on the move working hard to get everyone fed and happy. Care staff are up and down the halls all day giving a happy hello when they pass by. It was great a few months ago to see some of them participating in activities with the residents. The Head nurse is wonderful and takes the time to listen. As for activities, I think they could be little more engaging. Maybe having more group things to do, outside games, seasonal contest with residents and such. The new director there has really tuned this place up, making is what I knew it could have been when I first visited. I know my friend will have nothing but fun and happy experiences here in her golden years. Thank you Brookdale, when its my turn to travel down this life path I would be happy to live at Central Whittier.
