I have been very grateful for this place especially during the pandemic. We were kept safe here and received our Covid & booster shots here. The staff is great . I enjoy participating in activities here.
The staff is extremely friendly and caring. Residents are very friendly. I feel at home here! Many activities are available & interesting! I rate Brookdale Northbrook 5 Star!
When I count the amenities, activities, friendliness of residents, and staff, I am happy I chose this community. No more home maintenance, cooking, dishes and shopping. Beautiful public areas, dining room and landscaping.
I find the staff very friendly and helpful. Our facility is smaller compared to other senior living facilities which I like. All know your name.
I am at Brookdale Northbrook already five years. I feel here very comfortable and would recommend it to anyone that is looking for a Home... If I will be able to afford it, I'd spend the rest of my day's here.
My remote tour with Brookdale Northbrook was fine. Everybody I interacted with was super accommodating and easy to work with. And I thought they showed their residence well via video call.
The people are very inclusive. Everybody really tries very hard to help each other out. So it's a good place to be if you're all alone. I like my apartment and have plenty of space here And I like that there was no buy-in to be part of the community. I think it's expensive, but they do a really good job and I am happy here.
This community was not the right setting for my loved one. I was put off at my interview because there was someone that was in nursing who was not supposed to be in the interview and she came in and took over the entire conversation. She did not provide care and I did not know her purpose.

We appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback. We are committed to quality service and care and will review your feedback with our management team.
We chose this community mainly because the community is very close to our family.
Our Mother chose this beautiful place as her new home and we couldn't be more reassured that it was an excellent choice. The Executive and Staff across the board are high level caring, professional and exceptional people who have taken the utmost care of our Mother these last few years, notably during the pandemic. A remarkable Director and Staff at this place bring the flavor of this place to life, involving the families every step of the way. They are approachable, and absolutely professional in their attitudes toward the residents and their families. We highly recommend this place to anyone.
The community has a lot to offer and a lot of different services for the residents. There are activities for the residents to choose from. Brookdale Northbrook seems well established. The staff has been fine to work with as far as the family goes.
The setting is very noisy due to it being by the highway. The staff and Brookdale are wonderful. I have no complaints about staff. Everyone is helpful and cheerful. The community allows delivery of food for an additional cost. I feel the administrator fosters a nice and caring atmosphere here. He seems very caring anytime you talk to him. The staff seems content to work here.
My parents moved into Brookdale Northbrook a few years ago and adjusted immediately. Everyone is so friendly, from the residents to the staff!! As an adult child it gives me great comfort knowing how well my mom (my dad passed away a year ago) is being taken care of by people that really seem to care. Given this COvid situation Brookdale went above and beyond to make a bad situation as pleasant as possible. I recommend Brookdale to any parent looking for a place to live!!
My mother has been a resident for the last 3+ years in Independent Living at Brookdale Northbrook and I have nothing but the highest compliments to give to the facility and the entire staff. The facility is truly a residence and feels very much like a home. The facility is immaculate but not sterile. They have provided her a loving home and community that has brought her friendship, excellent care and social activities. The kind, caring, friendly and professional staff takes a very personal interest in each of the residents. The entire staff knows every resident by name and truly cares for their well being. During the COVID crisis, Brookdale has reacted quickly and professionally while still providing excellent care for the residents and staff. They have maintained a very low positivity rate and have communicated very effectively with the families of loved ones. As my mother's health started to decline, they were very proactive in working with my family to provide her with all of the services she needed to help her maintain as much independence as possible. The home health care providers, the physical therapists, occupational therapists, the nursing staff, the head of residential services, the director and assistant director and too many others to name all provided hands on care, patience and compassion that was truly unmatched and never will be forgotten. I highly recommend Brookdale North and I sing their praises every chance I get.
My sister has been a resident in independent living at Brookdale Northbrook for 3+ years. We are so thankful and appreciative of the care and concern of all the staff. We know that she is safe and can get help when needed. She looks forward to the activities that are available. Since the start of the Covid pandemic, the staff has been especially careful to keep all the residents healthy and is aware of the importance of promoting family connections whenever possible. I highly recommend Brookdale Northbrook to anyone considering a senior care option for their loved one.
Our 90 year old mom has been at the Brookdale for about a year and a half. Since our family can't be with her currently as we would like, we are so comforted to know mom is in a beautiful, safe, clean and professionally run environment. The staff is very conscientious, compassionate and kind. [name removed] the Executive Director, is very approachable and sends out current and important emails with updates on Covid, holiday menus and everything the residents loved ones would like to know. [name removed] is also very responsive, either by phone or email. Mom absolutely loves the Brookdale and we all do too since it's become her home and they all take excellent care of her! My family and I highly recommend the Brookdale.
Brookdale Northbrook has been a safe, caring, and friendly place for my mom. The community is clean and well maintained. During the pandemic Brookdale North has been vigilant towards keeping the residents safe. They have done multiple Covid tests for residents and their employees. They have enforced the guidelines set up by the CDC and the state. My mom has accessed transportation to her doctors through Brookdale. She has enjoyed some of the entertainment provided. I wish she would get more involved in some of the activities offered. The staff has been very responsive to any of my concerns. I receive daily bulletins to keep me abreast of what is going on in the community. Overall Brookdale North has been a very good place for my mom to live.
Our mom has been a resident of the Brookdale Northbrook for about 1 1/2 years. Since mom moved there everyone on the staff has been attentive, professional and really wonderful to her. The staff has been excellent in getting her to and from doctor's appts., managing the Covid-19 situation, administration of the vaccines, etc. [Name removed], the Executive Director, keeps loved ones updated with emails containing current events, menus, activities and important information which is so meaningful especially during these unprecedented times. My brothers and I are comforted to know that mom is in a beautiful, clean and expertly run environment which instills confidence in us all and brings a tremendous amount of relief! Highly recommend!
