Highly Recommended
Smaller facility that is more staff to resident ratio. The building itself is aging and could use renovation. Staff is caring and housekeeping service is good and the facility and rooms are kept very clean. Group activities are catered to the guests. I would highly recommend the facility to others as the staff genuinely cares for your loved ones.

They have been very good to my dad. He slipped when getting out of bed at 5am this morning and called me. I called Brookdale and they took care of him immediately and then called me to let me know he was not hurt etc. He likes doing PT there and has made friends with many of the residents

We didn't have a good tour as the tour guide didn't have the answers to my questions, and had to hunt for material. Also, all the care levels were a la carte.

Tour experience
The reason we did not choose Brookdale Harbison for our loved one was because it gave us more of that typical nursing home/institutional feeling and that is not what we wanted. We also needed a place that had a ton of natural lighting.

My experience at Brookdale Harbison
I was a resident at Brookdale Harbison for several months after leaving the hospital. I was reluctant to go, but my family insisted. The facility was so much better than I anticipated. The staff was constantly on alert for any needs of the residents regardless of the issue. The food was excellent. There was entertainment regularly. I went shopping with other residents (a staff member took us in the facility van). I highly recommend Brookdale and, if needed, will absolutely return to this facility. The staff is super attentive, activities are varied, food is delicious-I can’t recommend Brookdale highly enough.

Very Pleased
This was the most stressful decisions I've had to face in many years. [name removed] was the first person to contact me after my mom fell and was in skilled care. After it was determined that my mother qualified for assisted living, I chose Brookdale. I talked with many, many AL facilities but kept going back to Brookdale. It's small, quiet, and well kept. My mother has prospered there. They have activities everyday, the food is great, and my mom's room is nice. Now that the pandemic is waning, they are doing outings like lunch and shopping. I sleep well at night knowing that my mom is safe and sound. The staff really does care for these folks. Also, the price was very reasonable compared to the others I considered.

My wife and I went over for Thanksgiving and the community took all the plastic plates and threw them in the trash rather than the recycling, which bothered us. We don't get notified of things unless there is a problem and because of the Covid-19 pandemic, they haven't been sending the residents to the hospital in ambulances as much.

The community was clean and the menu looked appealing. They do offer activities for the residents. We would suggest that families tour this community for the care of a loved one.

A Place for Mom has scored Brookdale Harbison 8 out of 10 using our proprietary review score.

 

We assign review scores to give a more reliable view into senior living communities and home care agencies. Our review scores prioritize reviews that are recent — the past 24 months — because we know families need current information when choosing senior care.

 

Those with many recent, positive reviews receive a high review score, while providers with few recent reviews — regardless of how positive — receive a lower review score.
