Laurelta - Resident/client

Due to the fact that I moved in during the middle of the pandemic, I cannot give a totally objective review of my experience. I was warmly greeted by the "sunshine" residents that was it. More should be done to help a new resident to adjust. I do wish I had known ahead of time the number of residents who are "memory challenged", it might have affected my decisions/ The employees are OUTSTANDING!

Dad is Happy here

This community is about 2 blocks from us so we can visit often. The staff is very helpful and friendly. It is well kept up. They clean his apartment 1x a week. The dining room is very nice there is a great cook and the food is good. There is lots of variety or you can order from a menu. They are very accommodating in that area. It is a very pleasant atmosphere. We are overall satisfied and would recommend this to my friends.

An Excellent Experience

My mother lives at Brookdale, and so far, it has been an excellent experience. The staff there is amazing. They are so helpful and wonderful to work with. The food is good, nutritious, and flavorful, and there are lots of options for activities there. Even though my mother is still warming up to the community, there is a ton of stuff for her to do if she wants to. I would absolutely recommend Brookdale to others

Nice tour!!

I had recently taken a tour of this community and so far I have no complaints of how things had went. The staff where on time to our appointments and made sure to answer any questions I had for them in detail. I liked the different amenities and activities they had for the residents. It was just not the right fit for us in the end decision.

Care and attention

This is an outstanding community. The staff is very helpful and attentive to his needs. The meals are appealing and a nice variety to choose from. The community is very clean. I feel comfortable with this community and would recommend the care to other families for a good value for a loved one needing a nice place to live.

This is a beautiful, modern, clean facility that would be my choice if it had assisted living. It is expensive but well worth it and it is close to where I live. Everyone was friendly and appeared happy. 1947 Woman

Impressed with this community

I am very happy with my choice on choosing this community for my mother to live in. I was very impressed with the staff and how organized they where when it came to how they ran things at this place. The food they serve is reasonable and they have a great activity list of things for the residents to do throughout there week. I liked how the staff addressed any issues that we have almost immediately after I make the complaint. I would defiantly recommend this place.

Positive atmosphere!

I would recommend the Brookdale South Bay because it was the best one from all of the ones that we toured. It was more alive and there was a lot more residents out and about. There was not just planned activities, but also just residents interactive and there was more vitality. We liked it because there was a lot of residents and more opportunities for my loved one to find friends that he was compatible with.

excellent

Our experience thus far with Brookdale South Bay has been very good. We have only been there for about a week so our experience is somewhat limited, but thus far everything is positive. I really like that they have 24/7 concierge and there is pretty much nothing that they say no to. The food is excellent, and if the resident is not feeling well they will bring the food to them in their room. So far everything is going really well I and trust that will continue to be the case.
