High Quality Caregiving

My experience at Brookdale Hillsborough has been positive since my first visit to the site. The facility is clean and well-maintained, and the grounds are lovely and well-manicured. There are many and varied daily activities to keep the residents entertained and engaged, and the meals are nutritious and offer a variety of choices. Most importantly, the entire staff (management, nurses and medical staff, aides, facility coordinators, etc.) are very pleasant, and attentive to the needs of each resident. I can approach anyone with questions or concerns about my mother's status and expect the issue to be addressed quickly and professionally. I would highly recommend Brookdale Hillsborough for anyone considering a caregiving facility for their loved one.... Read more

About the facility Brookdale Hillsborough

Brookdale Hillsborough offers residents a personalized way of life, filled with tailored one-on-one care, regular meals, and exciting programming. Whether you are in need of assisted living services or memory care, you can find trained team members to assist with your specific needs. Brookdale offers two memory programs — the Clare Bridge and Solace programs. The Clare Bridge program was created more than 30 years ago and continually evolves as new research comes to light. The goal is to provide residents with six structured activities each day. These activities help residents use their current skills, while preserving their abilities and senses of self. The Solace program does not replace any key elements of the Clare Bridge, it simply adds to it. A few of its highlights include incorporating music and aromatherapy into residents' routines, as well as assisting with bathing, dressing, grooming, and other activities of daily living, as needed.

Here, residents’ wellness is supported by collaborative care partnerships between family members, Brookdale’s care associates, and additional health care providers. Through the use of a Personalized Service System, each resident is given a customized care plan. These unique care plans are flexible, which means they can be adjusted as needed. Many...

Mom is thriving

Mom is a very social person, and was pretty isolated at her rural home with a single caregiver. I've noticed that her mood is better and while she has yet to participate in any scheduled activities she is interacting with her new friends at mealtimes, as well as the nursing and aid staff, who in general are very friendly and responsive. Very happy that we chose Brookdale Hillsborough as a residence for her next phase of life.

Brookdale is great!

My mom has been incredibly well cared for by the staff— she is happy and feels safe. As a resident with dementia, she thrives on the socialization, kindness, and comforting routine provided. It is also my home away from home. I look forward to my visits at Brookdale. The atmosphere there is positive and the staff are attentive and interactive. In other words, they care.

Our tour

When searching for Assisted Living for my mom, we toured Brookdale Hillsborough. The facility itself was very nice! However, it was more expensive than some of the other places that we toured. Also, the residents didn't seem as happy.

Peace at Last

This is a good community, and I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The billing stinks and you can't get an answer to your questions or concerns. The dinning and nursing staff communication with the family is awesome! The woman that cleans my loved one's room is fantastic, and I believe her name is [name removed]. The nurses and aides have wonderful patience with the residents.

Tour experience

My dad did not care for Brookdale Hillsborough. The reason being was that he was coming from a 2 bedroom house and wanted at least a 1 bedroom apartment, here they only had very small studios available so he was not interested in that.

It's a nice place and the staff are very kind

The staff members are very friendly and have been very kind to our loved one. They are very accommodating to request and if there are any issues or concerns they look into resolving the problem. Our loved one seems to enjoy the meals and dining. They do have quite a few activities going on throughout the days like bingo, arts and crafts, church services where you can receive communion and they even bring in outside entertainments and guests. They also have a beauty shop which our loved one enjoys. Overall we are satisfied with Brookdale.

A great Place

They are very friendly and I have had a very great experience. It is not the most fancy but the service and the staff are great. My loved one is not really interested in the activities and that they are not very targeted towards him. Have a lot of veterans and a men's club that they try to keep the members active with.

Tour of Brookdale

We toured Brookdale and it was a very lovely place. The staff members were all nice and the facility itself was beautiful. We looked at the rooms on the assisted living side and they were nice and roomy, they even had a space for a little 2 seated kitchen table. The location was the issue for us.

I am so happy that she is there during this COVID pandemic!

Even with COVID they are doing a terrific job. The staff has been excellent, they are very sweet and understanding. They keep us informed on what is going on. They have great activities, our loved one is very involved in a lot of them. She sings in the choir and has made a lot of friends. They have a lot of arts and crafts, they try and do some kind of a social hour on Fridays, like an ice cream social. Recently they had an ugly Christmas sweater party. They have a big Christmas tree in the lobby and another one in the memory care unit, the place is really well decorated. The community has a nice big wrap around porch out front that our loved one enjoys walking around. The staff and residents get tested every single week, and from our understanding they have not had a positive case since April, we think they are doing a terrific job.

Some thoughts and suggestions.

Brookdale looks more like a nursing home than assisted living. Upon entering, one is greeted by semi comitose clients sitting around in wheelchairs not interacting with anyone. It is a startling way to enter the facility. I think that is a big turnoff to family and friends of clients and especially to clients themselves who are not particularly sick and can carry on normal conversations with the staff. This is also why those clients do not opt to participate in the activities that are offered. Food is very bland and not every client has digestive issues and can eat a bit of spice and garlic. As people age they loose their sense of taste and smell and need a bit more stimulation. You might hear fewer complaints from them about the food if you could do that. Of course, if a doctor orders a special diet free from those things, that is a different story. Brookdale does a good job in arranging entertainment for the seniors. As for rising costs, I do wonder why it is so expensive especially for clients that do not need any special services. Those PT services are paid for by insurance anyway. I realize fire insurance for the facility is expensive, but no one gets rich working there including the administration, so where does the money go? I would like to see a breakdown of costs sometime. Was it really necessary to replace all the lobby furniture this year? The original chairs were just fine and really don't look that much different than the new ones. Those are just a few of my thoughts.

Lovely facility except for size of rooms-very small. Pricey although fee includes room cleaning, laundry, phone, cable, Wi-Fi, meals, basic PT and OT activities, and nurse on prem. Administering medication, personal care, etc. extra. Lots of activities. Residents looked happy. Good vibes.

Over our budget needs

This place for memory care is not budget friendly it was triple the amount of money that my mother in law is currently paying. The property itself was nice it was clean and everyone seemed friendly . My mother in law does need memory care and the space in that unit was very limited so that was going to be a concern for us.
