We chose Brookdale Tyler East at the time because I really liked the people I was dealing with, they were very sweet and made me feel comfortable. They gave us a tour virtually and showed us the courtyard and we were able to peek into the rooms, so we got a better look inside the facility than the others we saw. They said that I would be able to continue to come in once a week as a provider so that was important as well. They had nursing changes and then the new nurse was telling me I would not be able to come in which was frustrating and the rules were changing. I think that care providers need to be updated on the rules and then there needs to be communication about those rules between staff members. There were a couple occasions I was displeased with a certain staff member and his care towards my loved one. There was one time I was later than normal and when I went to leave I have to have someone let me out, I called many times and walked around and there was no one in sight. I called the director and no one ever called me back. It took me 20 minutes before I could get out. Overall, due to our experience, I would not recommend to others who are looking.
My mother does not live at Brookdale Tyler East but she does live at Brookdale Tyler South which is a memory care facility. I am very satisfied with this facility in every way.
Nice place and Jason was really nice and helpful, but too small.
The reason why I picked this facility for my Mother is because they were able to provide services other people couldn’t offer. My mom really likes it here and it’s a nice facility. The staff members here treat her very well. My mom’s room is large and spacious and she even has a window overlooking the courtyard. I would recommend this facility to other families.
My brother likes the place a lot. My other brother is there now and they both like the food that they provide in the dining area. It’s really good and the menu changes daily. Both of my brothers are totally happy with it. The staff alone I would rate them a five star team. They also do a good job with their cleanliness. They provided plenty of activities however since the majority of the residents are women it is more specially tailored to them. There are about 3-4 men at most and they all seem to get along fine. Overall I would recommend this location to other families looking for somewhere for their loved one.
Everything was going fine when my mom was there. Everyone that works there has been very professional. My experience with them has been great but my mom just needs to be in a memory care unit which is something that they don’t provide. The staff really feels like family and I don’t think I have anything bad to say about them. My mom thought the facility was so beautiful; she would always talk about how it must be more expensive because of how fancy it is. The facility itself has a lock down unit, meaning she couldn’t just walk out the door if she wanted to so that added some security and peace of mind for us because she was prone to just leaving and getting lost. There were a few times when she wouldn’t eat and the cook took the time to actually make her private breakfasts just to make sure she would eat. Everything was kept clean and it didn’t have a bad smell or anything like that, it was very nice. I would definitely recommend them.
I toured Brookdale Tyler East. The staff was friendly and helpful. They did not offer us lunch but we toured the community. It was clean and didn't smell, but it looked too much like a nursing home.
I just recently had to make the decision to move my mother from our home to assisted living. This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I have had the primary care of my mother without help from my only brother. Just presenting my mom with this decision was so hard on her and me. This assisted living facilities met and exceeded my expectations. All mother could imagine was a nursing home and all the experiences she had with her parents-she resisted this move and change in her life. She felt as if we were "dumping" her! My husband and I both work long hours and just could not provide mother with the proper care that she needed based on her aging and declining health. Every staff member at Brooksdale was so kind to her and made her feel welcome. The residents were also so so so kind and welcomed her with warm hearts. Mother has decided that this is where she wants to be until she dies! Such warm people - staff and residents. This has been something not easily done but the outcome has been such a lift because in less than a month she loves her new life and has people her age and her caretakers are ALL so sweet to her. She is made to feel special and I can have peace of mind. I will be so grateful for Brooksdale for solving our problem! Thank you!
I am happy with the care here. The staff is helpful and attentive. The community is the clean and nice environment for care. The menu could use some improvements. I like that she is involved with the other residents in the activities that are offered for the residents who like to participate. We would recommend this community for the care and the value for a family member
