Top to bottom, they are terrific. The care givers are great, the food is great, the facility is nice and clean. It's a terrific place.
The sales staff is wonderful. They helped accommodate a quick move in after a hospital stay. But once we moved in, it was not at all pleasant. Since it was in the middle of the pandemic, they required a 14-day isolation / quarantine, but with a 24-hour one-on-one aide that I had to pay for. I was not allowed to see my loved one, at all, not even through a window, at any point in time. The treatment that they allowed was totally unacceptable. I was getting reports from the one-on-one aide of some of his behaviors, and being a memory care unit, they should have known how to deal with. He ended up in the hospital twice for injuries during a one month time. And each time he returned from the hospital, they started his 14-day quarantine again. Some of the aides were good, and some of them allowed problematic dementia behavior such as crawling around on the floor (to the point of having open sores on his hands and knees) , and I feel it was condoned by Brookdale management. When I found out about it, I had to get the home health care nurse involved. They finally started trying to divert him to safer behaviors (into his chair or bed or using his walker). It was my impression that the director expected the one-on-one aide to take care of everything, and there were things his staff should have been taking care of, like bathing, etc. The aid should have been there to make sure he wasn't inuring himself. I moved my loved one to a new facility which we are much happier with, and it costs less.
I have toured a couple times with the facility and I have to say I was more impressed last year when the staffing seemed to be together then I was currently. I realize that every job can have challenges, but when it seems the staff is unhappy it shows in the care that your loved ones will receive. There is a different Executive Director in the building then when we visited last April. The last Executive Director was much for pleasant and helpful and was really trying to help our family make the right decision. The current Executive Director does not seem as experienced and needs more training. All in all I think the stability of the facility is in jeopardy and the staff is not happy, would not suggest for your loved ones.
This is our experience with Brookdale on El Pintado: We wanted to move our mom from a private home to a facility with more activities and more people for her to interact with. Brookdale nurse came to evaluate her and came up with a quote. Also the sales person promised to work with long term care insurance for partial reimbursement. They also told us, there will be another evaluation once she moves in, but the difference in cost would be very minimal. We agreed to the price and moved her to the facility. 3 weeks later, Brookdale notified us that they will increase her cost by $750 per month (after they did evaluation). Brookdale charges you facility fee so once you move in, if you decide to move out, they keep the fee... We argued with the managers and told them we will move mom elsewhere.... The nurse said, she will make mom "walk again" so we will not have to pay extra $750.... As you can imagine, she did not walk before we moved her to Brookdale, she did not start walking any time after.... They did not increased cost at that time, but they resisted to submit any documents to Long Term Care for reimbursement (they slowly increased her cost over a period of 6 months she was there). I tried calling them, but both managers were never available and never called or email back. I did manage to get a hold of them once in a blue moon, but nothing ever came out of it. About their services-- Their food is very poor, there is a strong smell of urine, and facility is understaffed. If you try to deliver a message about medication -- i suggest to keep calling-- they will not follow up. I know a couple of people who moved their loved once from Brookdale because they kept increasing their rent. Not everything was negative-- there were a couple of very nice people who were taking care of residence, but overall experience is one star and not worth it.
We toured this community for care. We did not like the cleanliness of the community and they need to make improvements in a lot of areas. They did not seem to be well organized. The menu has a lot to offer the residents. They do offer activities for the residents who want to participate. We would recommend that this community make some improvements.
I toured this community when I was looking for my mom. I felt it was too institutional and it didn't have the family-orientated atmosphere we were looking for.
We are very pleased with all this community has done for us. My mother in law in doing amazing. It is a good looking community, they do a good job with keeping everything nice and clean. They have an excellent staff here. There are many activities offered, she is participating in many. She is pleased with the meals. Overall we know she safe and getting great care. I would recommend this community.
We toured here. We decided that there are too many patients who need constant attention but don’t have the staff to back it up. Granted we were there on a Saturday. The pricing is also misleading. The prices listed don’t include the care price. Just the room rental plus you have to pay for cable and diapers
On my visit here in our search for a place for our mother with dementia, I was very impressed. This is a very warm, caring, clean community. The people working here pay very close attention to the needs of the residents, and clearly care about them as individuals. The facility is very nice, attractive, with a great layout - circular around an outdoor courtyard. While it provides an aesthetic focal point (windows overlooking the courtyard), the practical side is that it also allows the staff to see what’s going on over pretty much all of the common areas. Attention is given to the individual residents at meal time to ensure everyone eats. The rooms are good sized, so even if they are shared there is a fair amount of closet space. Nice bathroom in the rooms, easily handicapped accessible. But most importantly, the people working here a clearly truly caring. The residents gravitate to them, and obviously just think the world of them. That spoke volumes to me. This was at the top of my list of choices. The main reason we selected another community was, unfortunately, location - this one was far enough away and the other one very close, so we would be able to spend more time with our mom. If we hadn’t found one we felt was just as caring and clean, though, we would have sacrificed the distance and chosen Brookdale Danville.
I say that overall Brookdale Danville is an okay facility. I have had some disappointing experiences with a resident there, but I think they have that under control now. Overall it has been a good experience.
