He's safe now.

Dad has had to learn to ask the staff for help when he needs it. He's not a social person so activities are hard. My dad liked the location best. It is in the side if town he is familiar with and close to stores he is used to.

Review for Brookdale El Camino

I would absolutely recommend this place. I would tell a friend, it is a wonderful place with a very friendly and caring staff and they couldn't go wrong placing a family member there. We picked this community, for the cleanliness and the wonderful atmosphere. Also she loves her room.

Did not meet expectations

When it came to the friendliness of the staff - some of the staff were wonderful, and others were terrible. On the memory care side there was not enough sufficient care. Our loved one did really love all the live music! The meals brought to the rooms are to expensive. We had to move our loved one out [date removed] because they could not provide the memory care they needed. If our loved one was more independent, it would have worked.

Our experience so far

Overall things are going well for us. The staff are all extremely friendly and helpful to my aunt. the only main complaint she has had would be the food. When the meat comes out, it is very hard to chew. Sometimes you cannot even cut it with a knife. Other than that, it is a nice facility that has great amenities offered. I would recommend Brookdale El Camino Gardens

We picked this community because it was convenient for my father to drive to. The staff was very nice. It was a nice facility. I was also overcharged, and it took a while to get a refund.

Highly recommend

Brookdale El Camino gets all 5's except activities. I would give them a 4 there. They played a lot of bingo games that my loved one didn't like, But that's really a personal preference. The staff were very caring & responded quickly when I would call them with a question or potential issue.

Very pleased

Our mother was never a woman who was "easy to please." So when we decided to move her to Brookdale El Camino, we had some concerns. To our surprise, she adjusted very well to her new life there. The staff was so friendly and helpful and made her feel very special. Her room is attractive and comfortable. The entire facility is so pleasant and inviting and we are sincerely grateful to everyone there for helping our mother - and us - through this transition. [name removed], especially, has gone out of her way to support us and to answer our countless questions! We would not hesitate to recommend Brookdale to anyone looking into senior living for a loved one.

I toured this community

I toured this community and the staff was nice and helpful. They answered all of my questions. It seemed to be nice and clean. It was just very big. The room I saw was really nice.It just felt like a nursing home not an assisted living place. I recommend families tour as many places before making a choice.

A Very Good Impression

We toured this facility for my sister who will have to move to assisted living. a) We were greeted by the Sales Manager who explained about their facility, services and operation. One thing that was interest to me was they had a doctor that supports their operation and we could add my sister to his list of patients. b) Another thing of interest was that as one’s abilities deteriorate they can add services up to and including hospice care. c) The Sales Manager answered all of our questions, some of which were from the checklist a Place for Mom sent me as well as some questions I had. All questions were answered on the spot. There was no, “I will have to get back with you later” responses. d) The Sales Manager then took us on a tour of the facility showing the common areas, dining room and outside area. As we walked around she introduced us to various staff members that were working. She made a point to ask each one how long they had worked there. We met one who had been there 18 years. Others had been there a number of years. No one was a recent hire. e) The Sales Manager then showed us the available studio apartment. It was in the process of being readied for a new resident. Even then it was in great shape. f) As we walked around she acknowledged the various residents that we saw while touring. They all knew her and carried on a short conversation. g) The Sales Manager introduced us to the executive director. who spent some time asking questions about my sister and what we were looking for. She was also very familiar with the current facility that my sister is at because she had a friend that resided there in the past. h) Our tour took longer than scheduled but there never seemed to be a rush on getting us out of there. i) We were very impressed with the facility and staff. We were impressed enough that we will be moving my sister to this

Brookdale Assisted Living in Pueblo. The Best Staff in the Business

we moved our mother into this facility in January, 2017. She was not happy about the move. She had spent almost 6 weeks in Life Care for physical therapy etc. I knew I did not want to keep her there for many reasons, expense etc. I knew the director of Brookdale, plus the nursing director personally, so that was a plus. My mom fought me most of the way, but agreed to a 2 month respite stay, so that's where we started. Mom had some medical issues, but for the most part, she was very independent and didn't want anyone to help her expect with dinning. Food was excellent. Anyway, she was bound determined to get out of Brookdale after the 2 month respite program. Well about 5 weeks into the stay, she called me and stated this is where she wanted to be and loved it. I thanked God that same day. As time went on, she got more comfortable and feel in love with all the staff and they fell in love with her. The one thing at the beginning was I did not want to move mom again if her needs went up, that was the one thing that [Removed] and [Removed] assured me would not happen and it didn't. There are to many people on the staff that were absolutely outstanding to name. But a few are [Removed], all 3 [Removed], and the list goes on and on. Mom passed away on July 12 from stage 4 Cancer that was not discovered until first week of May. Brookdale stepped up the care level with the help of Suncrest Hospice. I made many friends of staff and residents and even though mom is now in a better place, I don't plan on being a stranger to this facility. Sure at times, things were a little crazy, but they always made sure things got done when asked. I only wish mom could have lived out a much longer life at this facility because she was so happy.

Okay but could improve some things...

I want to thank A Place for Mom for all of their help in finding this community. Things are going well but they could improve some things.I paid them for the days of January and February then the following month I get a bill and it shows I haven't paid. I went in because the bill was higher than the agreed upon amount. I bought her a remote for her TV and they still haven't programmed it. The people are nice and but they could be more attentive. They are concerned with her happiness and I feel comfortable with her being there. She really likes the food. She feels like a queen because the food looks and tastes nice. I chose Brookedale because it was close to me and affordable for the services they offered.
