Do not put your loved ones in this place

I would tell others they do not do anything that they tell you they are going to do at the beginning.

my review of Brookdale Woodward Estates,

The community was very dark, the furniture and the community just looked older. It needs to be updated.

A family that is pleased

My mother felt comfortable at Brookdale Woodward Estates after visiting 8 places. Shes got a studio and it's a good size. She LOVES the food, she is actually gaining weight. She always talks about how good the food is on a daily basis and she loves the chef. They select their own menus and have of variety of choices. My favorite part about this community is how they have handled COVID and making sure they are keeping the families informed of what is going on. The facility is also very clean which is important to my mom.

Complete Care for Loved Ones

My Dad loves it there. They were able to accommodate him more than other properties where he had been in the past. The staff is great. Whatever he needs they get him and they let us know as well. My dad takes a lot of medication and that was a concern of ours that he was taking it correctly. They do a great job with medication management.They have great communication letting us know what is going on with him. My dad has a car there and we are hoping that he stops driving soon but for now they are good with letting us know where he is going. I did a lot of research prior to moving my dad to Brookdale and found it to offer what he needed at the best cost. Staff is friendly and they all have an attitude of helping.They always greeting us by name when we visit. Prior to moving to Brookdale my dad was not a joiner, since moving in he has participated in a wide range of activities and has found things he likes to do that we never knew before.

Overall good with communication deficiencies

I feel Brookdale is a well maintained place. The price is in line with the 6 other places I looked at. They have a lot of activities and nice common areas to do activities and bring in different types of activities. I had a hard time reaching the staff. The Concierge takes all the calls and beyond leaving a message there is no way to reach anyone directly. There is only someone at the front desk till 8 pm. and any calls after that are suppose to go to the duty nurse. I have never gotten to speak with a duty nurse no matter when I called. I did go over to the community once at night to see my mom and I was buzzed in but did not know who buzzed me in which left me with security questions.

The rooms were a decent size and had good medical coverage, but I wasn't sure the staff was as attentive to the residents as I would like to have seen.

Marketing person did not show up and did not tell staff that we had a tour scheduled. Hallways seem small and dark. Nice size rooms; the 1 bedroom includes a small kitchenette.

caring, compassionate staff, not wheelchair friendly

My mother resided for three years, becoming increasingly debilitated. The staff were always kind and caring with her, and despite being bedridden for the last few months did not develop bedsores, which is a testament to good care. That said, as is true in all healthcare, staff are overworked and unable to respond quickly to calls from residents. The facility itself has been redecorated recently, but doors were not changed. This facility is not wheelchair friendly, residence doors are heavy, and interior doors and doors to the exterior do not have automatic opening. The ONLY door with automatic opening is in the front lobby, and is controlled by staff. Food is OK but menu is limited, service can be very slow. There are activities for the residents every day, which favor the African American religious community. If you like forties swing or classical music you are out of luck

Do not recommend at all

Brookdale living assistance in Bowie Maryland is awful. If you love your loved one please send them to another place. My grandfather went there and it would be 5 to 6 hours before he receive help after pushing the help button even after falling. His toilet remain backed up for almost a week and was about to fill up with urine and feces because they were not come unplug it. I had to personally go over and fix the toilet. After falling my grandparents personally called me and I got there and help them up before any of the nurses came to help him. Please if you want your loved one truly cared for and to have any help if they fall or need assistance do not send them here.

should not have visited this community second, not fair to compare. We toured with the dining service director since the marketing director was not avaiable not did she follow up. He was pleasant and interacted with the residences . Observed some activities. The building and rooms were adequate, clean but overall needs repair. Saw overflowing trash containers outside. Did not observe food service. Table cloths on table, no assigned seating the residents formed their own groups. Pull cord in bathroom, alarm on body,fees charged for personal care, did not ask and was not told about fees for special services, ie. medication monitoring, personal personal help and diet, menu generic, no imagination, gets feedback from residences for meal planning. Plans to start a garden with residences so they can eat what they grow. But since a lot of what I learned as plans for the future was from someone involved with food service. The location of the facility was good. It was in Bowie which is where her home was as well as neighbors and friends. I hope I am not leaving any important info out. Security is not being able to exit unless the receptionist buzzes the door open.

Needs improvement!

There have been some issues here that I am just not happy with. When mom calls for assistance it takes the staff 30 to 45 minutes to respond. This has happened several times that I have been present and she has informed me it happens frequently. Some of the staff have been very rude to the residents when asked to bring them something in the dining room while I was present. The rest of the staff (office, receptionists, activities, nursing and rehab) are wonderful.
