Community Tour

They were excellent. The gal in charge of admissions worked with me quite a bit and was great. She was very though and very encouraging as far as what I needed to do for my loved one as her Power of Attorney. The location was just a bit far for us.

Friends at Brookdale

One of the blessings I count from this strange year is certainly Brookdale Vernon Hills- THOUGHTFUL, KIND and GENEROUS friends at Brookdale Vernon Hills! Since I am 82, disabled and live alone in a nearby suburb, I never expected to have someone I didn't know before call to ask if I would enjoy home delivered meals occasionally, a Zoom B-fit and Craft activities sessions. Each one of you- Chefs, [names removed] and all administration whom I have never met but who have instigated such community outreach, has added a light to a dark year, and I for one am very grateful! Brookdale, with it's indoor forest and gardens in a beautiful place, which I look forward to visiting again in the near future- especially to THANK my new friends!

Brookdale Staff Covid Response

The COVID-19 crisis has been a challenge to us all. Through it all, the Brookdale staff has done an outstanding job of keeping the residents as safe as possible and for taking care of their needs. They have done their best to keep us all informed of government policies, measures being taken by Brookdale to comply with those policies, etc... In addition, they have done their best to allow residents to still visit with family members. And when it was necessary to restrict visitation, they acted in a prompt manner.

Brookdale cares for its residents

My Mom and mother-in-law have been residents at Brookdale Vernon Hills for quite a few years. They are both very happy at Brookdale. They have both made friends and find the staff very kind. Though it has been trying during Covid-19, Brookdale has done everything possible to protect everyone's safety. I believe they have been very reasonable and responsible. Before Covid-19, the food was very good and plentiful. To protect the residents, Brookdale has served box meals when contact was not possible. Though, obviously, the box meals are not as good, they are planned well and are nourishing. Brookdale is doing as best as can be expected. As the son and son-in-law, I appreciate all of the reports and efforts made by Brookdale.

Overall great place for a loved one

Overall we have been very happy with Brookdale Vernon. the staff members are great, we would not ask for any better, we absolutely love them. The food was absolutely excellent before COVID, now we believe it is slightly lacking because it is now being delivered to the rooms.

Happy Resident

I have lived here for 4.5 years but who is counting! I am so happy with the staff here as they are so accommodating. I have made many friends since there is something for everyone to enjoy. You can meet people from reading in the library, exercising and playing games. My children are so happy that I am here and safe during these difficult times. Happy Resident!

Review of Brookdale Vernon Hills

I'm very impressed with the facility and the staff. It is a friendly and warm environment. I'm particularly impressed with the COVID response, very few cases early on, and nothing since. I will say, however, my mother complains daily about the food.

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.

Really liked the rainforest. Lots of natural light. Feels like a resort. Living unit that I toured may be too small, but I liked the lanai outside the unit. It's like a front porch, but still inside. People seemed friendly. Like the thought of a covered carport and valet service. Would likely need to see a larger unit to be considered.

[Removed] has been wonderful here

The staff here has been going beyond my expectations and is very helpful. They are very accommodating and they made it possible for my Mother to move in a few days earlier than expected. The administrator here, [Removed], has been wonderful to work with. When my mom moved in, all of the staff members helped us as much as they could. If I ever have any issues I bring it up with [Removed] and she gets back to me right away. The weekend staff is okay and I feel like they could be more attentive. I would recommend this community.
