My Review of Brookdale Lake Brazos

We really like the community, but it was too close to the river for my loved one.

A Welcoming, Pleasant Atmosphere

I would recommend this community. The staff encouraged my loved one to do things at the activities. There were times that I couldn't reach the staff. I was out of state and sometimes I wouldn't get a call back during this time frame. I would generally hear from.

Pleased with our experience

We chose Brookdale Lake Brazos because the fact that he was able to stay where he is and continue his care with his dementia instead of having to move him again. The rooms are a little on the smaller side, but not bad. The location of the facility is great and the staff members here have been very friendly. My dad also loves their food. Overall I would recommend them to others looking.

The staff have been great to work with. There has been some confusion with the community and our family on a few instances. If this community is in your area you're looking for, it is a great community and the residents like it here.

Assisted Living Is Fabulous

I think their assisted living is fabulous. Their memory care, I wasn't as happy with. In regards with memory care, I think the staff could use additional training. The rooms are nice, roomy, and updated for the residents.

Living here

Some people give you help here some don’t. Some people are rude. For the few that are nice it is ok. The rooms are nice. The activity director is nice. You do lots of activities. The food is usually pretty good. The kitchen people are nice. They have a beautiful river view with shade to sit under. They show favoritism here. Not all rules apply to everyone. If they did it would be a lot better place. Everything is not equal. If you want a nice place to live I would try it

Arrived a bit early. Waited for 20 min. for someone to come, but no one did and the office staff just sat in their office and did not provide help. We decided that this was indicative of the care she would receive. Also, it smelled of urine.

i love the changes I see in my mom

My mom fell in love with this community and she knew it was going to be the best fit for herself. She enjoys taking walks outdoors on the boardwalks, sitting in the courtyard and just enjoying the amazing view. Mom's room is a nice size, she joins her friends in the dining room, the food is great and there are a lot of amenities for those residents who want to take part in them. I am just so pleased with the care that the staff gives my mom, they make sure she comes down to dinner on time, that she stays active and that she enjoys herself. It's nice seeing mom happy again.

Nice Tour

We toured the Brookdale Lake Brazos where the staff was very knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. The activity program looked very inviting. The community was well kept and the staff seemed very friendly. We chose another community based on the location to our home.

Overall everything has been going well!

Overall everything has been going well for my mother since she has made the move into this community. The staff have all been wonderful and I am comfortable with the quality of care that she has been receiving. They have a great floor plan with lots of great amenities available to all of the residents. The only complaint that she has had is there is not enough quantity or variety in the meals they serve. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone interested.

My mom has lived at Brookdale for two years. I don't know where this site got pricing information, but we are paying about $5500 a month for her to be in memory care. I've been impressed with her care, but am beginning to investigate other options.

Fabulous Staff!!

I was so impressed with this community during our tour. The staff where absolutely wonderful and went above and beyond to make accommodations for my mother and try to make any arrangements they could to get her to be able to move in. They have a great dinning room experience as well activity program in place for all of the residents. I would love to live there personally in the future if they would have me.

She is moving in!

My mother had her heart set on this community since she toured it. She loves the fact that it is by a river, so the view out the window of her soon to be apartment is beautiful. It is a quiet setting, on 12 archers so it's perfect for nature lovers. They seem to offer a lot of activities. She is looking forward to moving in.

He is getting the surroundings, food, room and attention!

I am very impressed with the facility, its fantastic and clean. i have not found anything bad or to complain about. All the staff are friendly and helpful. What is interesting and I like to see is when my brother gets out to the dining room or to the back patio or crossing the front desk, everyone acknowledges him by his name, it makes you feel like your suppose to be there and not a stranger. He is enjoying the meals and has gained 10 pounds in 2 weeks. It is great, I had a couple meals and I am impressed. His favorite meal is breakfast and chooses eggs, oatmeal, and cranberry juice. He has not yet started activities they offer, he is acclimating himself until he gets to know the surrounding. Some people are helping and reaching out to him. The location is pretty, out the window he can see the river and we have gone out and walk down the river. He likes to be away from the city, the outdoors is what he likes. I would and have already recommended the community

Large facility with a lovely view of the river. Units are very large, the largest I've seen. Own furniture (this seems everywhere). Assisted living (60) and memory unit (10). Restaurant style. Meal menu seems repetetive, will keep an eye on it. Residents seemed happy. Includes utilities meals weekly housekeeping and laundry. Laundry rooms on each floor.
