A Good Experience at Brookdale Clairemont - They Made a Difficult Experience Easier

They were very caring and very concerned. My loved one passed away while he lived there, and they showed their concern and asked if there was anything they could do to help. Everyone was very friendly. It was relatively clean, but the carpet had some stains, and sometimes messes would take a couple of days to be cleaned. It's an older facility too, so it's harder to keep clean and/or look clean. But overall, I think it was a good value.

my review of Brookdale Clairemont

We did a virtual tour of this community and the tour was great. The staff was very friendly and they answered all of our questions. They had good follow-up and communication also.

Brookdale Clairemont a Great Assisted Living for the Price

I would tell others that this specific community is a great place to check out. The staff has been good to work with. The community allows pets. The rooms are adequate for the residents and some of the rooms have small patios.

Staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The facility was really not very clean and a lot of miss -matched furniture...overall rather depressing for an independent living senior. Thank you for the courtesy but not a match for us.

WARNING!! unsafe assisted living

This is a disgraceful facility, and we moved my Mother out after 3 months due to many issues. The management is the worst I've ever seen, from a clueless manager named [name removed] to the liar LVN, [name removed]. [Name removed] was full of empty promises, and NEVER followed-up on anything she promised (e.g., I'll show your Mom around the facility, and personally introduce to her to all the residents). Never happened. The management will promise they are the least expensive place in town, only to find out later that you will paying twice what you were quoted. We were paying over $4,000 more than quoted on a monthly basis. We were charged $400/month for nutritional assistance, yet they nearly killed my mom with all the salty food they gave her. She has chronic kidney disease, and was fed hot dogs, sausage and bacon with no nutritional value, yet charged for nutritional guidance. I would suggest asking a few of the nursing aids about the management and stability of the facility. Ask, "would you want your Mom to live there". It will be a resounding "no". The aids are not happy with the management, and one told us, "we are lucky to get our mom out of there". I was told they would bathe my Mom twice a week yet she only received one bath a week if lucky. And to top it off, two of here rings were stolen.

The location isn't ideal

I took a tour of this facility and it seemed good. The staff was very friendly and seemed knowledgeable but the building itself was on a busy street, which is something I wasn’t a fan of. They also had different times for eating, so not everyone ate at the same time. They had plenty of activities and everything seemed to be pretty clean. Ultimately, it came down to the location of the building and the fact that it just didn’t fit our specific needs.

I'm happy here

Things are going okay for me here. The staff needs a little more control but every place needs that so I can’t complain. The food is really good and it’s really nutritious. They have a few activities and they keep everything clean. It’s really a beautiful place, I’m really happy. I think overall they’re doing very well.
