We would not recommend Brookdale North Oaks anymore to anyone. The director we worked with is no longer there. We ended up moving my dad here and a couple days later he passed away. We found out he had bed sores and was not being well taken care of.

We take your comments seriously and are committed to providing quality care and services to our residents and their families. We are aware you have previously spoken with our management team and we will share your additional feedback with them.
It was a good facility for persons with dementia.
We toured Brookdale and it is a smaller facility focusing on memory care. It just was not what we were looking for
My loved one has really enjoyed being here. We feel comfortable and safe with our loved one being here. They have a lot of activities, bingo, baking, small movement activities, drawing, painting and more.
we toured this community and it was a nice tour. They answered all of our questions and was very helpful
This community was nice, it was a little too far for us. Also, the rooms felt more like apartments and independent living and my loved one needed more assistance.
If your loved one needs memory care, a stand-alone memory care facility like this one is the way to go. I would definitely recommend this community to others
I would not recommend them. They are not a locked facility. The alarm goes off but they don't always get to it right away. The day staff is great, always smiling, talking to residents, and engaging the residents. They have a new activities director. They serve a lot of starchy foods and I don't ever see any fresh fruit.
My sister has been a resident at Brookdale of North Oaks for the past few months. The place was chosen by my niece because this was one of the places you recommended. She was told that they are memory care and hospice. However, the words ‘assisted living’ was not mentioned. My sister was terminal due to an aggressive brain tumor. She required skilled care for all her needs. In fact the past six weeks or so she required mechanical lift for her transfers and needed total assist with her activities of daily living cares. My niece was assured that she would have two people to help her at all times. That did not happen since they have been extremely short staffed often...especially the last few weeks. Most of the resident aides did their best but only a couple have had training beyond what the facility taught them. How can you expect that they use good infection prevention or know not to pull someone up by their arms or do a pivot transfer without the use of a transfer belt? I will say that the facility did give training on use of the transfer belt and distributed TBs to each resident after we talked to them. However, I still saw residents being pulled by their arms and ambulating with staff without the use of the belt. Staff wore their soiled gloves from my sisters entire cares and then left the room, most times, with the gloves still on. The used briefs and towels were placed on the floor or they hung them over my sister’s bed board. There were no soap dispensers or alcohol gel available in the room or bathroom. The paper towels were way under the bathroom sink and I didn’t even see that they were there until my sister was there for a few months. They don’t give reports from one shift to another. I asked people working there and they all said they didn’t. Couple examples on why I also believe this to be true: 1) My sister had problems with constipation due to her inactivity and her pain medication, so she required medications. When we would ask if she had any results, we were told that they didn’t know. This happened more than once. 2) In mid July, several residents at the facility had stomach flu. We observed the people get ill and/or were told by staff about ‘so and so’ being sick. I got sick within 24 hours of visiting my sister. The hospice music therapist, my niece and her son also got the symptoms. I went and talked to staff about why they didn’t put outbreak management in place... at least a sign at the door telling visitors they had some GI flu there? I was told that there was no GI flu there. That the only resident who got sick was someone who had diarrhea from taking an antibiotic. I was told that I probably got sick from something I ate. The only thing that the music therapist and my family members had in common is that we had visited Brookdale. I had never even met the music therapist and I didn’t visit my sister at the same time as my other family members. I believe there was no investigation. They wouldn’t have anything written in a report or passed on to next shift because of the lack of communication.The medication aides told me they had a whole one day of training. No wonder why several didn’t know how to administer a suppository or put on a pain patch. The last couple weeks, they finally had some LPNs scheduled, but prior to that there was no nurse around after the day shift on week days and none on the weekend. Again, I think the aides did the best they could with what training they had but I do NOT think that you (A place for mom) should be recommending nor should the assisted living facilities accept residents who are heavy skilled care. I am extremely dissatisfied with the administration and the care that my sister received
My sister was there for 5 months. Unlike other familys that tend to drop off their loved one & only come every once in a while, we are a very big loving family that was represented most all day every day so we saw everything first hand. At the beginning it wasn't too bad, but there were certainly issues as I am certain they weren't used to our level of involvement. We resolved those issues, and a new General Manager was brought in. [name removed] is a true phony, She was sweet as she could be to our face, but I tend to believe that she more than stretched the truth. The staffing was seriously depleted, and she had every excuse in the book. Naturally, it was everyone but her fault. She started firing her best most caring personnel for the most foolish reasons. None of which could possibly been verified. I truly believe she is a corporate woman who's only concern is the bottom line. This is not the type of facility that I would ever want to be a resident of or take one of my loved ones too.
Exceptionally helpful and kind staff. Always respectful and cheerful with the residents. Happy we found this place. A charming atmosphere. Just wish the rooms had room for a small table and a tiny refrigerator to make it more like home.
I had a tour and got to see the staff. They looked like they were trained and knew what to do for the residents. They were just too far in distance and I did like them.
I am very impressed with Brookdale! The facility is clean and has a very cozy feel to it. The staff are amazing! The are so nice, patient and willing to cater to residents' needs and requests. I knew almost immediately that this was going to be a great fit!
This is a nice community with outstanding care. We like that they are always caring and they do keep me informed on his progress. The community is clean and we like the menu with the choices that are very appealing. They have activities that are offered to all of the residents. I have recommended this community to other families for the outstanding care and value for a loved one.
My father is doing great, they are taking good care of him and keeping him safe. The facility is clean in organized every time that I visit. They are able to accommodate him and his needs.
My tour of Brookdale North Oaks went very well. The community was clean and everyone there was very friendly. It was a good experience but they did not have a set fee and it was not in our desired location.
Dear Brookdale North Oaks Staff, Our family would like to thank all the staff for the care, concern, and love you gave my Mother-In-Law in the last phase of her life. Thank you for all your prayers, and allowing her to die with grace and most of all dignity. She was only there for about 5 months, but she could not have been in a better place. Shelly you were instrumental in getting her into Brookdale, thank you for crossing my path. I DO believe that was Devine intervention!! It's tough to care for the aging, but you all seem to do it so effortlessly, and with so much love and genuine concern. Angels, that's what you all are! I will praise and promote Brookdale of North Oaks any chance I get, your facility and staff are fantastic. Kind Regards, [Removed]
My loved one is doing fine, but we are not still 100% sure if this is the best place for him. He is very active in all of the games and things they do. The reason we chose this community was because it's closer to my home and other loved ones.
I liked this community. The staff are nice and caring. They need some organization assistance. The community is clean and well maintained. They do offer a lot of great activities that are offered to the residents who want to participate with the others residents. We would recommend this community for other families.
