Highly Recommended

I would recommend this community to others. This has been a very good experience. I believe they have handled the pandemic as well as they can. They had a room available during the summer for my loved one that was remodeled. The staff is tenured and this is a big plus for us. The communication is wonderful, and weekly calls to keep the families updated.

Excellent assisted lviing

At the time we chose this facility because it came recommended from a friend of ours who was in the business. The location also played a part in our decision. The room sizes here were standard compared to others that we looked into. My parents had a large 2 bedroom 2 bath and it was very spacious. After my father passed we moved my mom to a studio and it was on the smaller side. Overall, I would recommend, but not for dementia residents.

Good fit for my mom

My mother went from living by herself to the assisted living and that were very helpful is helping her adjust and adapt to the transition. Before COVID, she liked it there, now it's harder. The staff are extremely caring, they go out of their to ensure that her needs are met. The food has been a challenge since COVID, due to limited choices and my mom's food allergies. I would recommend this community to other families.

It used to be very good. No more.

If you are considering moving here, don’t. There are so many internal issues to mention. The most egregious is the food. There has been a problem with “chef” after “chef” and the food right now is not edible. My mom throws hers out 6 out of 7 days. She resorts to peanut butter sandwich and milk regularly. They will not take anything off the rent for food, so now we have to have food catered and the grocery bill is 4 times as high. This is nothing more than a nursing home so for the ones that are independent this is not the place. Moving her out as soon as possible. You’ve been warned.

An excellent facility with a pathway to assisted living if it becomes necessary. All the necessary services and amenities are available. The staff seemed truly interested in us and really wanted us to be happy. Apartment layouts are adequate but will require significant down sizing of our current household furniture and other possessions.

Gaines Ranch is a beautiful community. They took ample time to get to know what my mom's needs are and provided me with options best suited to help her adjust to life in an independent living community.

We Loved the Way the Community Looks

On the tour we had a positive experience and [Removed] was amazing at showing us around the community. My mom is in a lovely apartment and she enjoys being here. She is getting good care from the staff. I liked how there was a committee for new residents and they gave her a welcome gift basket and set her up with a buddy to get familiar with the community and to sit with at meal times. There are very good amenities, many activities, and the look of the building is very pretty with plenty of space. They have a restaurant for dining.

I toured Brookdale!

When I toured Brookdale, it felt like more of a hotel than an apartment complex. It was cold and not inviting. Everyone there was very friendly and informative, but it was not what I was looking for. It was quite expensive as well.
