This was a nice community. The floor plan seemed to be a little choppy in my opinion.

Our experience with Brookdale West St. Paul

Our loved one has only been here for about a week, and so far our loved one is doing much better. We are very surprised at the turn around from her previous community. Her attitude and health is much better.

I liked it because it is a small facility, feels very homey. Seems to be a good fit for my husband.

Brookdale West Memory Care

Our experience has been very positive. Mom first moved into a Brookdale assisted living, but failed because she kept trying to leave. Brookdale worked with me and she was in a Brookdale memory care within 24 hours. She exhibited a lot of maladaptive behaviors at the start and for a while longer. They worked with physicians and got her medications adjusted and now she is basically behavior free and happy. They take care with basically all aspects of her life and I have no concerns about her care. Staff are always friendly and have great interactions with all of the individuals that live there.

My Brides Home!

I moved the love of my life to her new home on [date removed]. The reason our family decided on W. STP was the small family setting and the feeling of real love & care that was evident from day one. Over the past nearly 5 yrs, that has been a reality. Never for a moment has my bride not been loved or cared for, less than what I have done or would have done for 52 yrs. The staff there have all been loving & caring. I admit that there have been special caregivers sent from above, and many have left, but Brookdale always hired new special caregivers, so my wife has always had special care here. They always have high quality, truly caring & loving caregivers. Every time I've arrived, right away whoever meets me tells me how my bride is doing, what she's been up to, and what she is doing presently. The food is exceptional, and it is prepared to whatever the resident's needs are. I have always been made aware immediately of anything regarding her health & welfare. She is secure, safe & loved !

Could be better

It is a small community which is an advantage.The other residents are delightful. It was recently updated. Hands on staff is good. Administration does not take responsibility for problems. We had issues getting things on a schedule when we moved in. We still do not have a care plan. Communication is poor. They have not had a steady activity director since she moved in. They give out a calendar but the activities don’t happen. Housekeeping is poor. Has potential to be a nice place but you really have to stay on top of things all the time. Administration has been better since the virus.

Brookdale memory care

The only reason I give two stars is for the overworked direct care staff. They try very hard but are not given time to devote enough time to direct care. Imagine trying to watch 20 two year olds which is memory care and do cooking, cleaning, dishes and clean residents rooms. No wonder they can’t take care of people who need extra attention. They call family for help all the while they ask for more money for their care. Management is not communicative and the nursing staff is not friendly and don’t take time to even do body checks. My mother-in-law passed away in January,2019. I am glad we had hospice because I think her medical needs from the nursing staff would have been non existent. Never saw the nurse that whole week before my mother-in-law’s passing. Never checked how we were dealing with this and to this day have never offered any compassionate care.

Don’t have your loved ones live here.

While most of the staff at Brookdale are excellent, they are overworked, especially evenings and weekends. It’s a very lonely place for the residents, with not much activity taking place. The assisted living building has a very low census. There is usually one good meal a day(lunch), and breakfast and dinner are questionable. The evening staff must cook and serve the evening meal, clean the kitchen and dining room, then give medications and put the residents to bed. Brookdale is a for profit company, and nickle and dimes it’s residents.

Short term stay is great

My dad is here and this is for a short term stay so it is a good fit. The people here are super nice and attentive. There are only 13 people here and they don't have an activity director so the daily activities are limited. They have home cooked meals and they all sit at the table. They will clean my dads room 2x a week. They have a nice patio area. We may be transferring to a Brookdale in California which is great. I would recommend this community.

Smaller community with less residents

My sister lives here. The community is pretty good and she seems to like it because it’s a small community and there aren’t a lot of residents. Everything is very accessible to her as far as in getting around and the staff has been very nice. She doesn’t need a lot of care but they’re helpful in doing little things for her if she needs them to. The food is okay but they serve a lot of the same things and don’t offer much of a variety. They have a few activities available as well as morning exercise classes. The cleanliness is good, we haven’t had any issues, and housekeeping comes by daily to empty the waste baskets and vacuum. The only issue we’ve had is with the bookkeeper and our bills not matching up with their records. It is something we’re currently trying to work on though. Overall, I would recommend this place to others.

Great Place

My mother has been in Brookdale for over a month now and I can't say enough good things about this place. She really likes it there and especially enjoys the home cooked meals. Brookdale has been able to meet all her physical needs which has really lightened the burden on our family. The staff are great and very friendly.

Comfort for mom!

I have mixed feelings about Brookdale. The care for my mother has been great, we are very happy with that part. The concern has been the billing. My sister paid last month and handed the front desk a check, but they charged us a $250 late fee because it if not make it to the payment center on time. We are very disappointed with that experience. Other than that, mom seems happy and I am comfortable with the care she is receiving.

A good respite stay.

Ths staff at Brookdale were amazing and over the top. Mom had a very good respite stay. She liked the food and they did offer some activities. The community is clean, small and has a homey feel to it. This community was just a little to far away from us for mom to stay here. I would recommend this community.

Very good with involving each individual resident with any activities and at meal time. The number of available staff on site makes the higher cost worth it.

Care for a loved one

The manager was not nice and she made me have to make a decision right on the spot. We wanted to take our time on this move for my husband. I did see that the community and it seems to be nice. I know that they had a nice choice on the menu. I would suggest that families check this community for the options that might be a good fit for a loved one to receive good care.

Adjusting Better Than I Expected

My mother has adjusted pretty well to this community, I'am satisfied.Everybody has been very friendly and helpful, the staff is great. They really know what they are doing when it comes to caring for people with Alzheimer's. It is a nice looking community, her room and the community is very well maintained. She is trying some of the activities offered. I like the food, they do serve well balanced meals. I know she is safe and in good hands. This is a community I would recommend.

I liked that it was small and that they would allow motion monitor. I saw someone go attend to a person whose monitor was chiming. Sticky dining room floors, but otherwise my first choice so far.

Seemed like a nice place!

I toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. The facility was well kept and clean, and all of the staff I met seemed friendly and professional. We ended up selecting another community, but this is somewhere I would have considered as an option for my loved one.

Brookdale-Clare Bridge is terrific for memory care

I researched a number of sites for my mom. Brookdale (Clare Bridge) was by far the best! It is a small community (19 residents), in a home like setting. The staff is extra-special. They care, have years of experience in memory care and neurology, and are real human beings who make this memory care path a positive experience for elders. I highly recommend Brookdale - Clare Bridge for Memory Care....I enrolled my mom there and it's been the best decision.
