Our family had an in person tour and this was our first choice, the staff were very very nice and they really did try their best to work with us. They showed us a few different rooms that our loved one could potentially move into.

My tour review

I was not too interested in this community due to the fact that it was a high rise community. We just knew that this community would not be the right fit for my loved one. The tour was good and they were very accommodating and showed us everything it was a super tour.

I liked the community. The only downfall was it was too far from my home for visits.

All were doing the best they could.

The dining room was often short of help and late. Staff was friendly and helpful but there seemed to be a shortage of help on occasions. The day staff seemed unable to tell me about night activities. We enjoyed the grounds a lot. A very pleasant place to walk Staff that were present regularly were helpful and pleasant.

While it was a pretty nice facility, it didn't have a warm, welcoming feel to it. Staff didn't greet residents byname. residents who we saw seemed less functional than other facilities. Had good programs that were clearly defined.

So happy

My parents have lived here now for over a year. Dad in their Skilled Nursing and Mom in their independent living. This was the initial reason they moved there so they can be together. Mom is able to visit with Dad and bring him out to the ponds, to the large dining room for independent residents and the outings they can go together. Dad isn’t completely restricted to the “nursing home” which no one wants to be. BUT it is actually pretty nice- super large rooms and very caring staff. Mom loves the food and has been able to be herself again playing bridge and joining groups there. We do have the community helping her with medications and walking the dog which is super helpful that she doesn’t have to move out to AL to receive these services. We can add more as needs progress as well. We have looked and looked and if you have parents with changing/ different needs this is the place to be. Or even if you want a place for any needs that may arise no need to pay a lot more just to have assisted living, this community can help with most assistance needed as long as it can be scheduled. they work so well with the residents and just really show their compassion. Love it!!

Getting more than I could've ever expected

I chose this place with my parents and once I explained what I needed with the sales director, price wise for both of my parents to have a 2 bedroom place, they were very, very helpful. Even just to help me with the price, they took off the second person charge and allowed me to have the 2 bedroom for my parents for the price of one. They’ve been great. The staff is absolutely easy to communicate with and knowledgeable about what they’re doing. They’re so patient with my parents. When we first started touring there, [Removed] (the sales person) was never pushy and always accommodating. The food is great, my parents love it, and I eat there all the time with my own family. It’s only $10 for me to eat there and they have Sunday brunch so most of the time we don’t even have to go out to a restaurant. They keep everything very clean. If we need maintenance, it all happens so fast and I’ve been impressed. There’s always staff walking around and checking on things. There are so many activities that it’s hard to keep up with. There’s a movie room, wine and cheese and happy hours, a game room, arts and crafts, and they’ll bring in people to do lectures. The activities schedule is just full. They even have Tai Chi and exercise classes and it’s all included in the price. There’s a greenbelt area in the back of the community where you can do some golfing and there are walking paths and gardens. It just doesn’t feel like you’re in a residential area. Every floor has an ambassador that comes down to help everyone move in and see if anyone needs anything, and they’re very nice and helpful. They have a military service wall as well and they’re putting my dad’s plaque up, which the whole family loves. Honestly, they’re getting more here than I ever expected and the price is so great. My parents can age in place, so if they have to do assisted living then they don’t have to move and it can all happen here. There’s a critical care unit on the 3rd floor so if need be then they can stay there if something were to happen and it’s all in the same facility. I was overwhelmed with all of the good stuff they have. I would highly recommend them.

Nice tour

We toured the Brookdale Meridian Lakewood and it was a very nice community. They offer many amenities for the residents. They gave a very nice presentation of what they could offer. We chose another community based on our budget needs, and we were looking for a more independent lifestyle.

Warm and Pleasant

Brookdale Meridian Lakewood is a very nice community. The atmosphere is very warm and pleasant for family members coming to visit their loved one. My father in law is being well taken care of by the staff and they are very attentive to his care needs. At this time of his life, they are making sure he is comfortable. The food they serve at mealtime looks very appealing. The grounds are very beautiful and well-kept.

Not a good experience.

I would advise if you have a loved one at this facility that you insist on weekly care conferences! Rehab was not started for 2 weeks. We experienced several incidents where doctors orders were not being followed even with written care instructions. When this was brought to directors attentions they would agree that these things should be being done but there was never follow through. Doctor's written orders were lost twice, (at least that was the excuse) a physical prescription was lost as well. We finally brought in a Senior Advocate and she was appalled at what had transpired. My mother went into rehab for a broken ankle & came out completely incontinent & unable to walk where she previously had been using a walker & was in control of her bodily functions. So watch closely, don't be afraid to question care & be the PITA family member if need be.

Lovely Place!!

My parents where both at this community for a short period of time and I was very pleased with how things went for them. The staff where wonderful to work with and I was comfortable with the care they provided. The meals where lovely and the activity program they had available was great. It just was not the right care they needed for the long run but I would recommend them to anyone.

It's too early to tell if they can improve but so far I am very happy here and things are going well. I had one meal I didn't care for that much but the other meals have been good.

My loved one has not adjusted very well to this community, I wish the staff would be more motivating to get him more involved in the many activities they offer throughout the day. The food also needs some improvement.

Taking Good Care Of My Father and His Needs

My father is doing very well here at this community. He has adjusted very well to it and he loves it. They have a pleasant staff here, they are very nice and attentive. There are many activities offered, that is the main reason we choose this community. He is satisfied with the food. They serve the food restaurant style, many choices to choose from. The community and his room are always well-kept. He is safe and getting good care. This is a community I would recommend.
