The staff is really good to mom! They do a great job keeping her room clean and the activities are good. The financial office is easy to work with and even fax mom's invoice, which is so helpful. The only concern I have is the turnover, there has been a lot. My mom has told me "I feel fortunate that I can stay in a place like this", which really says it all to me!... Read more

Happy with our choice

Brookdale University Park evaluated my mother and at first they said that she needed memory care but we got them to reevaluate and they went down to assisted living. We were happy with this choice because we knew she did not need memory care yet. They were more than willing to reevaluate and made it an easy process on the family. I would recommend them to others looking and already have. As long as she is happy and well cared for, we are happy as well.

My Tour

Never called us back. We came for assisted living tour and they took us through memory care. It seemed more like a nursing home. Too far from my home.

Very positive experience

One of the main reasons we chose Brookdale University Park is because they offered therapy on site and had many contacts for other therapies that we may need. It was also the same floor that her room was on which made it easy for her to navigate. It was a positive experience and I would recommend them.

Great Atmosphere

It's a friendly environment. The staff are always willing to help, and they're always there when you need them. It's a great overall atmosphere. The tenants are all friendly as well. The food and dining area is like a 5-star hotel almost. It's expensive, but I think it's a really good value, and they do everything they say they're going to do.

Great Sales team

We had a great visit and spent time with the sale person. The moment we walked in we were greeted and ask if we wanted anything from the Bistro. The residents seem warm and friendly and willing to assist in answering any questions. This made us feel at ease. We looked at several apartments, the have many floor plans to choose from many more than most communities. We will be moving in towards the middle of January.

This is an active and engaging community. There are several long tenured employees and they seem to go the extra mile for their residents. Location is great and central to most all medical appointments.

This community was really great and it was a nice tour. The value for the cost and the location were the main two important factors for us.

Pleased with our experience

We chose Brookdale because we liked the facility itself and we received a very nice discount at move in. The apartment sizes are average to a little bigger than some others that we looked into. The food sometimes has too much on it, a lot of people like that but we would prefer it plain. The staff are very friendly and helpful and I would recommend to others looking.

Our Tour Experience

They were very responsive. We went on three separate tours, and they accommodated us each time within 48 hours to get those scheduled. They were very accommodating in general, and answered all of our questions. The staff were very engaging, and they treated my loved one in particular with respect and kindness.

Review of Brookdale

It has been entertaining to feel/watch the atmosphere change after corporate/regional is has to be reported to or coming for inspections very constantly. The staff and activities does so well working to keep activities to choose from so many tastes. I am so bothered by no separation of Independent and Assisted living. Other facilities do have separation - even buildings, connection alley. Psychology depressing

Review of Brookdale

I have lived here for 12 years so I certainly am happy. Best thing about here is that everyone is friendly (residents and help). Yes, sometimes I'm not happy about meal, but I don't have to do the cooking or cleaning! We could use more employees but it is what it is!

Review of Brookdale

Food tastes mostly like pablums pie slices are lunch at crust and down to 0 not enough servers in the restaurant. Food was excellent 4 years ago and a major reason to move in for many. Insect invasion constantly reappearing.
