We are super happy with everything. The only complaint he has had is the food. The facility does know that there are complaints and they are working on improving things.

Refuses to refund some Fees

My wife cannot walk so need assistance in normal functions/activities. When my wife developed bed sores on her buttocks, they did very little about it. The one bed sore finally got infected and we had to go to the ER and had to be transferred her to a Skilled Nursing Facility so she could be treated by Nurses and Doctors, which Brookdale has neither on staff. When I gave the required 30-day notice to the Management and ask for refunds of the Personal Service Fees that she didn't use, they said YES, after the first 14-day period of not being at Brookdale. After I received my refunds, I discovered that they didn't include the Personal Service Fees refunds. After contacting the Management several times they eventually said that Corporate denied the SVC Fee refunds but wouldn't give a reason. So, if you want poor service and a denial of refunds when leave, then by all means stay at Brookdale -- otherwise I would recommend going someplace else.

Happy with our choice

My brother is getting out of his shell a little bit and actually participating in some of the activities they provide. For example they have parties, music, happy hours, walking etc. He is absolutely crazy about the food that they serve and thinks it is fabulous. The staff is very responsive, helpful and seem to be compassionate and really care about their residents. At the price point, I think it is a great value for the money. His room is very comfortable, bright and airy. It is about triple the size of the last place that he was at. I would recommend Brookdale Clairemont to others.

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.

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.

Hoping it gets better

Our loved one is doing okay, she is still trying to get acclimated at the Brookdale Clairemont. She is shy and needs people to reach out and include her. They had an ambassador who helped show the new residents around for the first day, I think she needed more than one day. The food is not what we expected. We had dined there with her and the meals were not very appetizing. The food that was served was cold. It is discouraging for people who really count on the meals to be one of the highlights of their day. We are really happy with the care that they are providing for her. We like the fact that the doctor comes in to visit her, and that she is taking her medication on schedule. We really like her room. There are beautiful views of the nicely landscaped courtyard for the residents to get out and enjoy. They offer transportation for trips to go on outside excursions. We're hoping she will meet new friends and feel more welcome.

Would recommend this place!!

My loved one has recently made the move into this community and so far I have no complaints of how things had been going for him. He has had a few health problems but other than that the experience has been pleasant for him. The staff have done a great job at staying organized in his care plan and are always attentive to his needs. I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone interested.

Makes My Mom Feel Welcomed When There

My dad is doing very well here. The staff is wonderful they encourage him to eat at meal time and to join in some of the activities that they are doing sometimes they are successful and sometimes not but the fact they try is important to me. I can't say enough about how they treat my mom when she is there to visit dad. They have made her a parking space close to the door so she doesn' t have to walk too far.They encourage her to join in on meal time which most of the time she doesn't but appreciates the offer. The staff just makes her feel valued and welcomed

Needs To Do A Better Job Of Posting Acitivites

My brother likes living here. He is starting to enjoy his somewhat independence. I think if he were more aware of activities and events going on he would attempt to join in, however, the only place that they are posted is in the common area and if you don't tend to visit there you wouldn't know. The staff is nice very helpful they do have an escort service to help residents if needed go to the dining area which my brother uses. He loves the food.

A good experience!!

My grandmother is doing well since her move in, it's exactly what she needs. She is now around a lot of other people in a social environment. It's a bit pricey, but I don't think we will get anything like it for less. I would recommend this community to anyone looking.
