Happy with our choice

We chose Brookdale Riverwalk because the facility itself is a little more updated, the staff was not pushy what-so-ever about getting us to sign up, and the food was very good. They are more convenient with their bus services as well, they are running 5 days a week up until 1 or 2pm. This really stick out because a lot of other places we looked at the bus only ran a couple days a week. [name removed] the gal that took us around and gave us the tour was the biggest sweetheart. She gave me her cell and I was able to text her at anytime. Even since my mom has moved in I have texted her and she called me right away. She really bent over backwards for us and we really appreciate that. All of the staff really have all been amazing and right there anytime we need help. I would definitely recommend them to others looking.... Read more

Would Recommend It for Most People

It was a little rough in the beginning, but now that I've found out how things work, it's been much better. I could have used a little more information in the beginning. My apartment is smaller than what they showed me originally, and it's okay overall. We're in the cottage style living, so it's a little harder to get to he main building where the activities are. But if you're in the main building, that is probably much better. The same goes for the food - it can be far to get to it from the cottages. Some of the food has been good, and some of it not so much.

My review of Brookdale Riverwalk

I was ready to move into this community myself. I check into a lot of communities and I don't know of any others that would be any better. The staff always answers all of my issues and I never have any issues with this community. The only downside is that if there is any thing maintenance that it can take some time to be completed.

Highly Recommended

I would recommend the community to others for their loved ones. The residents are able to eat what they want to eat during meal times. The staff have been helpful, caring, and accommodating to my loved one.

The dining experience has been inconsistent as well as the food quality. Also their ability to deliver the menu that they say will be served is inconsistent but we would still not hesitate to recommend this community.

Definitely recommend

We aren't able to be there during the meal time, but our loved one is putting on some weight so we assume the meals have to be pretty good. Also she is kept extremely busy during the day with all the activities going on

My Tour Experience

I liked Brookdale Riverwalk. I was impressed. It looked very nice, especially the landscaping. But I found a place that was a better fit, where I have my own cottage with 2 bedrooms. Even though I liked Brookdale, it was smaller and more expensive.

My review of Brookdale Riverwalk

Our family had an in person tour, and the experience was not a favorable one. It had a nursing home smell to it. There was loud music being played in the memory care unit. The memory care also looked old, and outdated.

Caring daughter

The nursing staff here was wonderful, they were very friendly and helpful, but that was not the case with the kitchen staff. The meals were not good, they tell you in the beginning they are chef prepared meals and you pay a lot of money and I ate here and the food was just not good and it was always cold. They do go all out on activities and have a lot to provide for the residents. Overall, I would recommend. When you bring things to their attention they do follow through, you just have to be persistent. They are very accommodating with peoples needs as well and it is a very homey environment.

Best in Bakersfield

I think Brookdale is the best place in Bakersfield. I visited every community here and I chose Brookdale because I had more room, they provided the meals in restaurant style with options and after I evaluated them all and Brookdale was better by far. Before COVID, activities here were very good and I like that they offer physical therapy on site. But right now the entire building is in quarantine.

All of the staff give excellent care to my mom. The activities are great and they keep her busy, and I’m glad she has the chance to interact with others, something she would get to do at her own home.

Beautiful surroundings - more attention needed on medication

My husband was in assisted living at Riverwalk for 2 weeks after a pacemaker implant. The buildings and grounds are lovely. His description of the food was that it was adequate and they had the "best" cookies. He is a "book" man and was glad to see they had a library. But he was troubled by the staff's inability to work out his prescriptions for knee pain (he would be having knee replacement surgery later in the year) or to let him know the services they offered. It took almost the entire 2 weeks for prescriptions to be ordered and received. I wound up taking home laundry when it was a service provided. Overall, I think Brookdale Riverwalk would be a good solution for long term assistance. The initial time period was just a bit disconcerting. As it turns out, my husband was in the rehab, skilled nursing building after knee replacement surgery in November. His total care there was wonderful, including prescription maintenance, physical therapy, doctor visits, and calls by the insurance case worker letting me know what was going on. I am grateful for both experiences.

The staff is very attentive

My brother seems to be pretty happy here and hasn’t had any problems with the staff. He’s really enjoying where he’s at. I’ve had dinner there before and they actually invited most of our family to get together and have a meal with them so we could get acquainted with the facility and the staff. I don’t know if there are a lot of options to choose from, though, or if they have the same foods each time. The cleanliness of the facility is very nice and I’m always impressed with it. Housekeeping comes by once a week to clean the apartment and the staff checks in on him every day just to make sure everything is okay. Overall, he’s been very satisfied with being there. They’re easy to get along with and offer to help anytime they can. This place just seems to be comfortable to him. I would definitely recommend them to other people, I’ve even told some friends about it.
