Be prepared for a breakdown in communication AFTER your family member enters!

Pros: The Activity Director is pretty incredible and keeps families informed of loved one's status and seems to go out of her way to do her job at times. The direct care staff seems to do their jobs well and consistently. Unfortunately, like most elderly care homes, sometimes having to also carry the load of their supervisor's responsibilities as well. Such as contacting family when a question is needed to be asked. We're glad at least they do. Clean facility, good meals, good direct care staff. Cons: Initially, it took the administration office more than 2 months just to provide and process all of the information needed to file insurance claim with 3rd party insurance! So, we had to pay out of pocket for 3 months. This was mainly due to administration not following through. We had to press them to make the necessary phone calls to the insurance company, as well as repeatedly explain the paperwork needed. The Executive Director, [name removed] rarely returns phone calls and passes them on to individuals not qualified to answer questions that are needed to resolve a situation, often avoiding appropriate communication with family, until she's called out on it. Medications where ordered to be filled by their pharmacy without legal authorization by family member's Power of Attorney. Updated medication forms/list was not provided to direct care staff. After 3 months of back and forth with them, we hope that finally everything will go smoothly. Thus, communication seems to be the biggest problem there.

The facility was very nice. The community, both staff and residents, made us feel welcomed. Had we not opted for independent living, this community would have been a good choice.

Happy, caring environment

The staff was very caring and helpful when we moved my mother into the memory care facility. They kept her occupied and distracted so she didn't even realize we left. She seems to enjoy the activity at Brookdale and even likes the food.
