We are known for our indoor rainforest€”at more than a football field long and six stories tall, it's one of the largest in the world. It is truly a sight to behold and a wonderful place to spend an afternoon when there is a blizzard raging outside.

  • Looks Good But Don't Be Fooled

    The common areas are clean but the rooms are not as clean as they should be. Services are usually late, medication is not always done correctly. They do not have an activities director, all activities are lead by the residents.My mom moved there for the pool. We paid extra for a unit across from the pool but my mom has only been able to use the pool about 10 times in the three years she has lived there, it is either broken or too cold or no staff available. The food is not good. Now with the Covid-19 they are bringing food to their rooms but they bring breakfast at 10:00 am and lunch at 11:10 am and dinner at 4:30 pm. I know they are trying to do a good job but they need to space it out better. Security needs to be much tighter anyone can sign in and go to a persons room.

  • Brookdale is wonderful

    The staff at Brookdale is wonderful. Everyone here is helpful and friendly. The rainforest is so fresh and nice. I enjoy the outings and going to lunch. Brookdale is very pleasant and comfortable. The entertainment they provide is very enjoyable and fun. I am limited with walking, and I am able to do everything I want to do here. They also have a bus that takes you to appointments or out to go shopping. I recommend living at Brookdale.
