This community was really good and it was one of my favorites. The community that we went with just had more things that we were looking for in a community.
Our family was able to have an in person tour and the community was very nice and clean, but our loved one chose a different facility because it was closer to our family.
This was a very nice community, just too big for my loved one.
The community has assisted living and memory care needs. The staff is friendly, and they provide medication distribution, and daily living care needs. They seem to have lots of activities for the residents to participate in.
We toured Brookdale and I really liked it. Mom did not like it as much because it was darker inside and had all dark floors. It does have a nice park. The team was great with follow up.
Very large facility in good condition. List prices are higher than some of the others, but there were reductions offered. One of ones I'm considering.
There was no activities during the time our loved one was there, and our loved one had Alzheimer's and we asked if they could take care of her and they said absolutely most certainly yes and they were not able to. Our loved one would call in the night panicking, and we found out afterwards from her neighbor that they would see her walking around at night. When we brought this up to the head lady in assisted living she quickly shot down our concerns and did not return our calls. They also charged us enormous amount of fees, and it was just not a good feeling we could not get her out fast enough.

We actually visited Brookdale in Lisle. [name removed] provided a great tour, helpful and informative information packet and answered all of our questions. Very much impressed with the presentation and what Brookdale of Lisle has to offer.
Our family is extremely pleased with the care provided to our loved one at Brookdale Glen Ellyn. The staff is completely resident centered. The staff is professional at all times. During the worst pandemic our world has experienced in over 100 years the staff had an incredibly strict action plan in place for residents and family members. As difficult as it was for all, our loved ones remained safe and healthy. According to a CVS pharmacist, the number of Covid cases for staff and residents alike was the lowest for all senior living facilities in the area. Thank you!

This is my home and it is a good one!

The most important assets at Brookdale Glen Ellyn are the people. This includes the staff as well as the residents. When my wife and I moved in and went to the dining room we were greeted by name. The food was delicious. The other residents were friendly and the staff was caring and accommodating. After my wife passed I had support from those around me. I have good friends here. Although COVID-19 has put a damper on all the social activities, we are all anticipating a return to normal as we retake our lives from the pandemic. It is a great place to live.
I'm extremely grateful that brookdale was the living facility that my grandmother was a part of. She always enjoyed the food and the staff was extremely welcoming. Every time I visited I always felt that it was an extremely warm and welcoming environment/community. I can't thank the staff enough for taking such good care of her.
My parents have loved living at the Brookdale Glen Ellyn since moving in 2 years ago. Their comfortable apartment home on the 5th floor is flooded with bright sunlight and the large windows provide great views of a busy active park to the North and woodsy nature to the West. Housekeeping is available to my Mother when she wants it and the overall cleanliness of the entire facility is top notch. The staff's friendliness and genuine concern for all residents is always apparent, and the medical care services and the convenient access to it is outstanding. My parents love the meals and the dining and the daily activities that are available for the residents. The Brookdale Glen Ellyn is easily accessible to walkable grocery stores and other shopping. The community bus is accessible for Dr. visits and and other destinations. I know that my Mother and Father feel safe, comfortable and cared for at Brookdale Glen Ellyn. My sister and I are so pleased as well.
My grandmother was a resident there and I was always impressed with the facilities and the caring nature of the staff. I'm thankful that this was the community that she was a part of.
Our experience so far with Brookdale Glen has been pretty good for the most part. Based off the tour this community is beautiful, and the staff members are very nice. We also think it is a good value, we feel we do get our money's worth for what they have to offer. From our understanding we think they care services are good.
Brookdale was an excellent home for my grandma. She lived in both the independent and assisted living rooms, and we always felt that she was safe and well cared for. The staff is very warm, welcoming, and responsive. The rooms are spacious, light, and airy. There are plenty of opportunities to be social and meet other residents. Overall, I think Brookdale is a fantastic home for any family member.
I would definitely recommend Brookdale to others. I looked at 9 places, Brookdale was the best of what I looked at. The room sizes and layout were great. My dad was only there for 4 days. The staff did a great job to help us out any way they could. Overall it was a positive experience for our family.
I think they do a really good job making new people feel welcome and getting them involved with activities. My mom met a lot of good friends. The food was good and a lot of choices. My mom is in Independent Living. They have so much to do, trips, pool activities, other things. Never boring. They have done a good job with the Pandemic. They are there when you need them. They have a coordinator that helps with everything you need. I don't have to worry, I know my mom is being well taken care of.
They have a lot of activities going on. They have been great. They are very diligent. They make sure everything is clean. They are very polite. It took awhile to convince my parents to move, then we needed to speed things up. Brookdale was great at helping us get my mom's assessment set up. Brookdale helped us to move my mom quickly from out of state on the timeline we needed after my dad passed away unexpectedly. They were wonderful to work with.
