Happy With Our Decision

We moved into Brookdale on [Date removed]. We have been impressed with the friendly, helpful atmosphere here, from both the staff and the residents. Our apartment is beginning to feel like home. And we are getting to know people on a first name basis. Everyone tells us that they like it here and know that we will too. We have gotten involved in Be-Fit and water aerobics classes and have gone on some of the tours and trips that were offered, and we have found them to be fun, educational, and interesting. We have really enjoyed the entertainment that comes to Brookdale as well. We are sharing our travels with a slide show presentation once a month or so, and people have enjoyed coming to that. The food is great. The building is clean and attractive. And we have brought friends here to see it. We like being close to our church and old friends and back in Glen Ellyn. We are very happy with our decision to move to Brookdale Glen Ellyn.... Read more

definitely would recommend

The cleanliness of Brookdale is excellent and the staff members are wonderful. Everyone here is always very friendly and interacting with one another. They have a ton of different activities here internally and externally. We have a gorgeous courtyard that we use for picnics, programs and different entertainers. The PT program here is excellent - they have a Be Fit program I take advantage of everyday and we have a top notch fitness gym. We thoroughly enjoy being apart of this community we are very proud to be here. We would absolutely recommend them to other families.

We love Brookdale Glen Ellyn!

It's a nice place to live. We've been here for about a month and a half and we are very comfortable living here. Our apartment is very comfortable and clean with a beautiful sunset view during nicer weather. The staff is very helpful, friendly, and quick to respond if you call. The food is good and they will accommodate special requests. Everyone living here is pleasant and friendly; when you walk down the hallway everyone greets you and says hi. We enjoy having dinner with other residents and we've found a lot of connections. The programs and activities are very enjoyable and entertaining, especially when its nice out. We'll go and listen to a music program outside. We didn't want to move from home, but we are very very pleased with how it turned out. We're very happy to be here and happy we chose Brookdale Glen Ellyn, it's a really nice place.

All expectations were provided by Brookdale

I've only been here a year, my spouse passed after only being here for a month. Brookdale understands me; my husband had stage 4 cancer and his doctor gave him up. We had to sell our house and find somewhere to go. I'm appreciative that Brookdale accepted him in that state. We had wonderful hospice care, they handed it very well. Because of that, I've haven't met many residents, but I'm involved in a lot of organizations in the town of Glen Ellyn. I've been attending the trips, but I haven't quite jumped in all the way so I don't know everyone's name just yet. The food is very good and I really like my apartment. It's a spacious 1 bedroom / 1 bathroom with a living area, kitchenette, giant windows with a lot of natural light, and I have an outside deck - I can't ask for more! I go on, and participate in as many activities as I can. I suggest activities to [name removed], our program director. She takes my suggestions and we've been able to visit art exhibits, art installations, etc., while still being mindful of those who are in walkers or with lesser mobility. I would recommend Brookdale, and I just had a couple from my church move in. They gave me a big award, took my picture, gave me a bouquet of flowers, and a referral bonus which will be deducted from one month of rent!

This is a very appealing community with good staff and in a great condition. This is just a good place for you or your loved one. The tour was good and I liked the lady that I was working with and helped me with everything that I needed while I did the necessary leg work.

Would 100% recommend this community for anybody looking

Brookdale Glen has been a really good experience so far. There is always room for improvement when it comes to the meals and dining service, but when we speak with her she really seems to be enjoying it. Our loved one is enjoying the exercise classes and we never thought she would get herself involved in those. She is really loving her studio apartment.

Friendly atmosphere

I chose Brookdale Glen Ellyn because it is in a very convenient location that I really like, out of the ones I looked at this facility was by far the best. I have a very nice apartment with plenty of space. I think the staff members here are outstanding and it is a very friendly place. I would highly recommend to others.

Pleased with my experience

They do have a lot things to do here, they take suggestions from residents on activities which is a big plus. The value for the money is great. I have a wonderful apartment with a large living area, an efficiency kitchen, and a good size bedroom. I am on the corner so I have a lot of windows that looks out over a park and a small balcony. I would recommend Brookdale Glen Ellyn to others looking.

A Nice Place for Elders in Their Declining Years

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.

Not good for memory care

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.
